The Dr. of Thuganomics started training to be a wrestler at Ultimate Pro Wrestling where he also created the character, The Prototype. Cena fist appeared on WWE in a match against Kurt Angle on the 27th of June, 2002 which ended up with him losing.
In 2004, John Cena’s status as a celebrity began to develop. Cena won the United States Championship from Big Show. Not too long later, Cena lost the title but he gained it back soon. Cena then lost the title again to fellow WWE superstar, Carlito. During that time, Cena apparently got stabbed in the kidney by one of Carlito’s bodyguard. This resulted him to stay out of action for a month.
In 2005 and 2006 respectively, Cena has made a couple of feuds. He had a feud with champion John Bradshaw Layfield, manager Eric Bischoff and fellow wrestler Chris Jericho. Cena also made feuds with Edge and Umaga at that time. But even so, some friendships were formed. Cena is said to be friends with Carlito after they won a match with Jeff Hardy against Edge, Randy Orton and Johnny Nitro.
The year 2007 became a big year for Cena as he got involved in a wrestling match with Britney Spears’ ex and rap star, Kevin Federline. John ended up losing that match thanks to some assistance from Umaga to Kevin Federline. Later that night, Cena took revenge by body slamming Kevin Federline backstage. The year 2007 also started pretty well for John Cena as he became the first person to defeat the Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga that year. The Chain Gang Soldier also teamed up with Shaun Michaels defeating the RKO tag team which consists of Randy Orton and Edge. The match ended up with Cena and Michaels winning.
Cena has also made his own name in other talents. He has recently filmed a movie under WWE Films called The Marine which will be set to premiere in March 2007. John is said to be taking some time off soon to act in another movie alongside fellow wrestler, Triple H. Besides that, Cena also released his first album titled ‘You Can’t See Me’ under the WWE label. His entrance theme, ‘My Time Is Now’ can also be found in that album. Other than his trademark moves, Cena also made some trademarks in his fashion. He is mostly seen in the ring with knee-high denim pants and his chain.
Cena graduated from Springfield College, Massachusetts with degrees in exercise physiology and human anatomy. He is the second eldest of five brothers and is said to be a family guy when he is not wrestling. His good friends are fellow wrestlers, John Hennigan and Randy Orton whom he will have to fight with.
John Cena is definitely going to be a big inspiration to all whether in fashion, music or even movies as the activities he has participated in is already more than a normal celebrity’s ability. With all he has done, fans can definitely expect to see more of the WWE champion in the coming future.
