"Dreams will be crushed and made," the 16-time World Heavyweight Champion continued.

Cena also told Fallon that grew up watching WWE and the host shared a photo of a young Cena holding up a makeshift championship belt.

"My dad was the absolute biggest wrestling fan of all and I was introduced to WWE at a very young age," the Cenation Leader said. He explained that he would wrestle in the basement with his four brothers.

"I guess that's why I love it so much," Cena said of WrestleMania, which allows him to live out his childhood dreams.

The pair then took part in the Whisper Challenge which saw Cena correctly guess on his first try the word Fallon was whispering while he listened to loud music on a pair of headphones.
