The thing that gets lost in the dueling chants of “Let’s go Cena” and “Cena sucks” at sold out WWE events is the fact that John Cena, both the most popular and most despised wrestler in the world, is a beast. At just over six feet and 250 pounds, he doesn’t look like a towering monster next to some of his co-workers, but as this video of the 12-time World Heavyweight Champion squatting 600 lbs. shows–getting him within in the range of record territory–Cena’s just as strong, if not stronger than many of his contemporaries.
*UPDATE: John Cena took to Twitter to say that the bar weight in the video is actually 396 pounds or 180 kilos.
