Cena Retires the "Jorts"

John Cena told WWE.com, in a new article, that he has retired the jean shorts, and will now be wearing the new camoflague ring attire he debuted at Vengeance. Cena was quoted as saying, "The jean shorts, for the moment, have been retired," Cena tells WWE.com. "These are military-issued camo, and I think they will stand out. I have every U.S. Military service branch represented: Army, Marine Corps., Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard. I’ll be changing it up from time to time."

As for the new "Rise Above Hate" T-Shirt that he also debuted at Vengeance, Cena said "I wanted to make a positive statement. I have a varied group of loyal fans out there that will literally back me through thick and thin. I’m known for crazy graphics and colors on my shirts, and I've pretty much run through the entire rainbow. I didn’t want the message to be drowned out with a graphic or anything like that, so we went real simple and put the words 'Rise Above Hate' with 'Hustle, Loyalty, Respect' on the back."
