WWE John Cena book with sweatbands

Crapper Mike writes:

Spotted at Barnes & Noble. While the idea of a book about John Cena isn’t that odd, the sweatband tie-in is. I mean, yeah–he wears sweatbands. But in combination with a book? Is WWE expecting readers to sweat while reading it? Ew.


Yeah, that has me perplexed too… Maybe it’s to make it appeal to kids like when they put a prize in a cereal box?

I like the cover artwork though, I’ll say that….

Check out Mike’s NASCAR racing site which also has a new wrestling-related article!

    Perhaps it was a suggestion from Vince as a way to combat the inevitable carpal tunnel syndrome for those who aren’t just merely staring at the Cena-porn for too long.

    Yabba Dabba Goo!!!!!

  2. Bryan says:

    Good find, Mike!

  3. 80's Guy says:

    Yeah, but then you lose the end of the book title if you take out the sweatband!!

    Unless it’s written behind it as well….

    What are you doing that you need extra wrist support while reading a John Cena book?

  5. CP says:

    I saw this same book in another BN store a couple weeks ago. Small world, ain’t it?

    – Because the cap, the shirt and every other piece of John Cena merchandise you can get from the WWE store doesn’t fit into the package as well as the sweat band. (Wow what is that, a John Cena sweatband, I want one, where did you find it.)

    – Because when you want to look all WWE at your favorite gym. (Hey yo bro, you lookin all John Cena today. You work out?)

    – Because everyone in the world will look at that and know exactly who he is. (John Cena, yeah, he is my neighbor)

    – Because wearing that makes you feel all special inside like it makes John Cena. (I feel like being a Fruity Pebble today)

    – Because no other piece of merchandise will make you feel like you have a piece of John Cena with like that one does. (no comment)

    – Because for those late nights in bed with your wife/girlfriend/husband/lover/yourself/whoever (Will you do the five knuckle shuffle on me? We can turn the bed into a ring.)

    – Because…. John Cena. Need I say more? (The Champ is here!)

  7. Gerard says:

    Maybe the book is so big and heavy that lifting and carrying it with be like holding a set of dumbbells and you will need the sweat bands to help get a better grip on the book???

    This is actually less baffling than when you bought a CM Punk DVD at Walmart back in ’13, you got a set of wristbands free with purchase. Ironically, CM Punk never wore wristbands his whole career.
