After a late event, wrestlers need to eat. If you're John Cena and Frankie Kazarian, you eat a lot of chicken.

Speaking on the Doughboys podcast, Samoa Joe was asked about wrestlers putting away food.

"This goes back to when I started. It was John Cena and Frankie Kazarian. We were at my house, we just got done doing a wrestling show, it was probably midnight and we were crashing at my pad because we had another show the next day. My pops, great host, no matter what time of night. It's midnight and my dad starts cooking. He cooks a pan of chicken breast and all this stuff. There's about five of us. The guys start eating and there are two sheet trays, completely full, with grilled chicken breast. I had one or two. John and Frankie start going one to one on grilled chicken. They get through two trays. I was amazed my dad whipped up two trays. 'What are you doing, pop?' They get through two trays of chicken. They're now face-to-face and just trying to shovel it in like, 'I'm not giving up before you give up.' Finally, they finished all the chicken in the house, there was nothing left to eat, and they called it a draw. They probably both ate six pounds of chicken, if not more," said Joe.

Let's see if we can set up a rematch between Cena and Kazarian.
