So, now it is a great pleasure to welcome John Cena back to Cushing.
John, Cushing, and all your fellow penguins are enormously proud of you.
We are thrilled and honored to have you back at the academy here with us on this special day.
I know the class of 2015 is particularly honored.
Thank you for all your leadership and example to us all.
Thank you, headmaster Torino for the kind words, not the introduction, because that was a bunch of crap.
Just the fact that he could make coach Dowling smile, I think the only other time coach Dowling ever smiled was when he was kicking my butt on Tuesday practice down that field.
I don't have one of these.
I'm just going to put this over here by the mints.
My name is John Cena and as you just heard, I'm a 15-time WWE champion and class of '95 graduate, which basically means what I do for work is I get inside a 20-foot ring,
and opposite me is a man in spandex, wearing baby oil, usually angry at me, unbeknownst for me to the reason, but we end up fighting.
And that's my job.
Man, that just hit me.
Anyway, a very unlikely candidate, 20 years later to be speaking here in front of the class of 2015.
So, I truly thank the faculty, the administration, and wholeheartedly thank the graduating class of 2015 for allowing me to be here today.
Now, after those lengthy words, by the headmaster, I realized that I'm pretty much the only thing separating you from graduation, which means we're going to settle this one way.
I challenge each and every one of you to steel cage match.
The only way to get your diploma is to go through me.
Sorry, sometimes I get confused and think I'm still at work.
I kid, I kid.
I am to be brief though.
And I'm just going to try to put some perspective on what's happened, absolutely right now in front of us.
I'm sure for the past year, especially being seniors with college applications, SATs, ACTs, all that junk.
You guys keep hearing about the future and the future.
And even today, you'll hear about the future.
And the future shows a lot of promise.
But I think we should focus on the now, on what you guys have done to be here today.
And I've sat in those seats and I know what it's like to be here.
And it's a wonderful gauntlet.
