The Seattle Times briefly spoke with John Cena while he was filming FOX's "American Grit" reality competition 90 minutes of Seattle in Pack Forest. Cena said he loves seeing what fans come up with and commented on the steady stream of Cena-inspired memes and other fan reactions:

"You never take it personal. ... I can either roll with the punches and keep the tidal wave going or I can pitch a fit, and that's pretty much where it stops."

It was noted that Cena is also an Executive Producer for the series, which premieres some time in 2016. Cena commented on being around competitors with a history success as well as the 4 coaches who are decorated military veterans:

"I've never felt so inferior in my life."
