The Pro wrestler turned actor admitted that he had an addiction to the minty candy during his WWE days, and would down multiple boxes before heading into the ring.

“My thing was always Tic Tacs. It’s a nervous superstition that I’ve always had before we go on a broadcast, and I’ve had to wean myself off of them, because I was up to, like, three boxes a day and it’s right in the 20 minutes before broadcast,” Cena, 42, told a stunned Kelly Clarkson during Friday’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show.

“Yeah it’s pretty much 10,000 calories of straight sugar,” Cena said.

Playing with Fire star said his Tic Tac addition started as a way to combat body odors when he’s in the “small, confined” ring with other guys on WWE tours.
