John Cena Knows His Garbage Pail Kids


If you’re in the “Cena, sucks!” camp, your chants might get a little bit quieter when you learn that he’s a fan of Garbage Pail Kids. In fact, he’s a bit of a connoisseur for the original line.

Cena, along with his Bumblebee co-stars Hailee Steinfeld and Jorge Lendeborg Jr., were interviewed by IGN. But rather than the usual questions and answers about how great and wonderful their new movie is, each of the co-stars were presented with various ’80s toys to see if they recognized them.

When they’re handed a stack of Garbage Pail Kids, the younger Steinfeld and Lendeborg have no idea what they are. Cena, on the other hand, cuts a quick promo noting not only what they are but a bit about their cultural relevance in the 1980s.

Not stopping there, Cena reveals he’s got an uncut sheet from the original Series 1 hanging in his house.
