Sports Illustrated has released its annual list of the 50 Most Fit Athletes in Sports!
The list names 100 athletes split into a male and female category and is chosen by Sports Illustrated editors and a panel of fitness experts. WWE Superstars John Cena and Charlotte Flair both crack the top 30 of each respective list.
The four-time Raw Women’s Champion, who made the list for the second consecutive year, ranks among world-class athletes such as Misty Copeland, Kerri Walsh Jennings and Katie Ledecky. On the male list, the 16-time World Champion ranks with notable figures like LeBron James, Conor McGregor and Cristiano Ronaldo.
It’s no secret that the athletes of WWE are well-trained individuals. But just how in shape are they?
It turns out, quite a bit.
WWE superstars John Cena and Charlotte Flair have made the list for men and women, respectively. The “Leader of the CeNation” comes in at Number 24, and SI wrote the following on him:
“Don’t sleep on Cena just because he’s part of WWE. The 6′ 1″, 251-pound all-around athlete holds the record for most WWE Championship reigns with 13 and has pulled off some impressive fitness feats, both in and out of the ring, including squatting nearly double his body weight.” while..
