John Cena has been the biggest name in pro-wrestler for as long as anyone can remember. He’s the man, and he’s beloved. He has granted more wished to sick children than anyone else, and just genuinely seems like a very down to earth and caring person.
11. His Rap Album Only Reached #15
Vince McMahon doesn’t have the time of day for anyone but the #1, and that’s a far cry from #15, which is where Cena’s rap album peaked on the charts. Who would have thought that there wouldn’t be more crossover fans between WWE and hiphop?
10. He Pooped His Pants
During a match with Scott Steiner in the early ’00s, Cena revealed to his girlfriend Nikki Bella in an interview, that he defecated into his pants. Ever the professional, he ignored it and finished the match.
9. He Married His Highschool Sweetheart
A jacked, characmatic, single guy, who is the face of wrestling? That’s one way to get female fans to pay attention. Finding out that he was married to his high school sweetheart may generate a few “Aww”‘s, but it excite the female WWE fan the same way as having that shred of hope that he could be hers someday.
8. Degree in Exercise Physiology
Doctorate in Thugonomics? Nope, Cena’s actually got a degree in exercise physiology. Not nearly as gangster as thugonomics.
7. The Five Knuckle Shuffle
In fact, the WWE would rather you forgot most of the names of Cena’s old signature moves, but this one in particular. The five knuckle shuffle was one of Cena’s former signature moves, which is a slang term for playing pocket pool against the one-eyed snake.
6. Vanilla Ice Is a Major influence On His Persona
Early Cena is very reminiscent of a Vanilla Ice type character, and Cena himself is in on the joke evidenced by this get-up.
5. He Got Beaten Up By Kevin Federline
Believe it or not, there was a time when getting Britney Spears’ backup dancer and baby daddy on your show was a big deal, in fact when “K-Fed” showed up at the WWE,
4. His Favorite Actor is Harrison Ford
Do you know how much money Vince gets paid every single time anybody watches a Harrison Ford movie? The answer is absolutly nothing. If it was up to Vince, the only correct answer to “Who is your favorite actor?” would have “Me, haven’t you seen The Marine?”
3. He’s Obsessed With Anime
His favorite movie is Fist of the North Star, and Cena is a huge anime fan. Maybe not a huge enough fan to dress up as his favorite characters to attend Comic Con, but probabally pretty close.
2. He’s Ended Careers
Remember the whole Nexus vs WWE storyline? Many wrestlers, including Cena himself, have gone on record that they don’t think that was handled properly, and Cena certainly didn’t want to be responsible for derailing anyone’s rise in the company. This was the perfect opportunity to put the red-hot Nexus over, but they decided to have Cena bury them instead.
1. He Slapped Stephanie McMahon’s Butt
On an episode of Smackdown in 2003, John Cena laid the smackdown on Steph’s behind. Doing that to your boss’ daughter infront of the entire world is usually not the best way to get in your boss’ good graces, but it didn’t seem to slow down Cena’s career at all. This was during Stephanie’s engagment to HHH, and right after Cena woo’d her with a freestyle. Now we know the person who bought his album.
