Isn't there anything John Cena can't do? He wrestles. He raps. He acts. And now he speaks Mandarin?

OK, John. We buy your "Hustle, Loyalty, Respect" gimmick now.

WWE on Thursday announced an exclusive multi-year content distribution agreement with PPTV in China. The WWE will bring a live event to Shanghai on Saturday, Sept. 10, and the wrestling giant has signed Bin Wang as the first-ever Chinese talent signed to a developmental contract.

The WWE team, including Cena, made the announcement at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai.

"Today’s historic announcements further demonstrate WWE’s long-term commitment to China,” said WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon. “Partnerships with PPTV and Expo Group, as well as the signing of Bin Wang, will enable us to engage our fans in China like never before.”

Whatever. The real historic moment is watching Cena absolutely nail Mandarin in a three-minute speech. Cena is a 15-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He is the Make-A-Wish Foundation's No. 1 most requested person and a hero to kids around the world. He is Superman.
