Professional athlete, internet sensation, and all-around good guy John Cena is at the top of his wrestling game. But his yesterday showed that his social media game is even stronger.

The Trainwreck actor shared this photo of himself when he was 19 and a student at Springfield College.

Well, needless to say he's more jacked than I was at 19.

"I'm John Cena."

Before getting huge and entering the world of professional wrestling and the WWE, Cena grew up on the WWE. His parents and four brothers were all big wrestling fans.

College Years

When the Instagram photo above was taken, the young Cena played center on his college team.

Ruthless Agression

Then in 1999, just a few years after the Instagram photo was taken, John Cena made his WWE ring debut, and the rest is history.

Probably one of the only teenagers that could take 19-year-old John Cena in a fight would be 15-year-old Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
