Cena swapping green for pink and black for a good cause tonight
There will be a new color scheme for John Cena at tonight’s Night of Champions pay-per-view as the green will step aside for black and…pink! Yes, pink!
And no, it’s not a tribute for Bret or any of the Hart family but rather an important cause for John Cena – it is to promote National Breast Cancer Awareness Month which runs through all of October.
The Boston Herald broke the story that Cena would be sporting pink in support of the Susan G. Kormen for the Cure organization and will be wearing a black shirt with Rise Above Cancer in a pink circle as well as a pink baseball hat.
“One of the reasons I really wanted to do something with Susan G. Komen is because of my brother,” Cena told the Herald. “Early detection saved his life.” His brother learned that he had brain cancer last November.
“It was an inoperable brain tumor, but one of the main reasons he’s done well is the early detection. I know it’s brain cancer and breast cancer, but that key is early detection,” he said, adding that his brother Sean is doing well now.
“It’s very exciting for us to be partnered up with Susan G. Komen,” said Triple H, EVP of Talent Relations and Live Events. “The WWE and John Cena have such a large female fan base, so it’s important for us to support the people who have supported us for so long.”
The people at the Komen organization are thankful for Cena for his help and credit him for coming up with the idea, calling it a great opportunity to reach out to people and help them take action.
