John Cena was born in West Newbury, Massachusetts, on April 23, 1977. His mom, Carol, is English and French-Canadian, and his dad, John Joseph Cena, has Italian roots. He’s one of five brothers: Dan, Matt, Steve, and Sean. As a kid, he loved wrestling and even made cardboard championship belts for himself and his brothers. Cena went to Central Catholic High School in Lawrence, then to Cushing Academy, a private prep school in Ashburnham. Later, he attended Springfield College, where he played football and graduated in 1999 with a degree in exercise physiology. After that, he pursued bodybuilding and worked as a limo driver, and even had a job at Gold’s Gym for $6 an hour.

Career

Cena moved to California in 1998 to become a bodybuilder. He started pro wrestling in 1999 with Ultimate Pro Wrestling (UPW). In 2001, he joined World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) and was part of Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), where he won the OVW Heavyweight Championship and OVW Southern Tag Team Championship. In 2002, Cena moved to SmackDown and became famous as a rapper character.

Cena won the WWE Championship and changed to a good-guy character in 2005. He was the top star for the company for the next ten years. Cena has won 16 world championships, including 13 WWE Championships and three World Heavyweight Championships. He’s also won several other titles and big events, like the Royal Rumble and Money in the Bank.

Cena earned praise from his fellow wrestlers like Kurt Angle, John “Bradshaw” Layfield, and industry veteran Paul Heyman, who called him the greatest pro wrestler ever. Jim Cornette, who was in charge of OVW during Cena’s time there, also hailed him, saying Cena was the last big wrestling star due to his hard work, athleticism, and microphone skills.

WWE chairman Vince McMahon compared Cena to Babe Ruth in terms of his importance to the WWE. Bleacher Report listed Cena among the top 10 WWE wrestlers ever. In 2012, WrestleMania XXVIII, featuring Cena vs. The Rock, set records with 1,217,000 buys, making it the highest-grossing WWE event up to that point, raking in $8.9 million.

Cena acted in movies like The Marine (2006), Trainwreck (2015), Ferdinand (2017), Blockers, and Bumblebee (both 2018). He was in F9 (2021) and Fast X (2023) as Jakob Toretto, and played Peacemaker in The Suicide Squad (2021) and its TV series (2022–present). He released an album called “You Can’t See Me” in 2005.

Besides his entertainment work, Cena is well-known for helping charities, especially the Make-A-Wish Foundation, where he granted over 650 wishes.
