Before we go into John Cena’s career, we can’t help but say what you probably noticed – he’s an avid car collector and all-around fan of cars. He has a huge garage, and you can see the full list just above. Now, John actually didn’t fit in with other guys in school and was bullied, which lead to him being interested in working out and getting bigger. That’s what ultimately lead him to become a wrestler, although he worked as a limo driver and a trainer.
His wrestling debut was in 2002 against Kurt Angle, which, unfortunately, he lost. But that did not stop him at all, and two years later he beat Big Show and became a US Champion. There were many fun battles later, where John Cena lost the title, but won it back, and it was a pleasure for the crowd to watch. That’s when the controversies started, he was reportedly stabbed into a kidney after a feud with WWE superstar, Carlito, which made him pause for a month.
In 2007, Cena wrestled against Kevin Federline (Britney Spears’ ex-boyfriend). He actually lost as Umaga interfered, but later body-slammed Kevin backstage, treating the audience to a great action behind the scenes. Near the end of that same year, John Cena lost his title due to an injury – a torn pectoral (chest) muscle, leading to about seven months of recovery, thus forcing WWE CEO to strip him of his title.
John Cena returned unannounced in 2008 in a Royal Rumble event, winning a shot at WrestleMania title. But the success didn’t last – he suffered another injury – a herniated disk in his neck. Once again, he had to take a break and rehabilitate, which was a success, but ultimately forced him to stop wrestling. Also, a fun fact – despite his rivalry with Randy Orton, they’re actually best friends, which is surprising to see as they’re usually fighting almost to death. John Cena moved on to movies, and we already saw him in Trainwreck (2015) with Amy Schumer where he actually has a steamy scene, but also in Tour de Pharmacy (2017) with Orlando Bloom.
Movie business accepted John Cena, as well as the audience, and we can’t wait to see his next projects. The two coming out this year are movies Blockers, where he’s trying to prevent his daughter from having sex on Prom Night, which is very funny according to the trailer, and Bumblebee (2018), where he’s playing Agent Burns. It’s actually a spinoff from Transformers universe, and we’ll get to see the backstory of one of the iconic Transformers – Bumblebee. There’s also a TV series in the making, where John Cena borrows his voice to Baron Draxum in the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We are excited to see the final product, honestly.
