John Cena has always (well, since he stopped rapping) branded himself as the working man’s working man. He’s harped on his Boston upbringing and no-days-off attitude to try to connect with working class lunch pail guys as much as he connects with kids. And what connects with the “everyman” more than a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon?
