John Cena (Full name – John Felix Anthony Cena) is best known as American professional wrestler but he is also an actor, rapper, and a reality television host. He doesn’t have a permanent agency in wrestling, but he is under contract for WWE. There, he acts as a free agent, in other words, he can “fight” for both, Raw and SmackDown brands.
John Cena Age
John Cena was born on April 23, 1977. At the time of writing this article, John Cena is 40 years old.
John Cena Wife and Family
Cena was born in West Newbury, Massachusetts to Carol and John Cena Sr. He has four brothers, Dan, Matt, Steve, and Sean. His grandfather was Tony Lupien, the professional baseball player. He grew up in a family with (sort of a) tradition in wrestling, because his father was a ringside announcer.
Since he was living with his four brothers, you can only imagine the mayhem they could make when their parents were not home. That is the time when they all picked on little John Cena. That is why he started working out and grew to be the man he is today.
He has been with a lot of women. There were some rumors that he was with 7 of his female colleagues. However John Cena was married to Elizabeth Huberdeau from 2009 to 2012 and he started dating Nikki Bella in 2012 and she will become his wife soon. They are now engaged. Nikki Bella is also a professional wrestler, actress, and model to WWE. Her real name is Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace. She previously dated wrestler Nick Nemeth who is known as Dolph Ziggler.
John and Nikki started dating in 2012 and they become engaged on April 2, 2017, when Cena proposed her after their match.
John Cena Education and Career
Cena attended Central Catholic High School in Lawrence, Massachusetts. But he transferred to Cushing Academy. That is a private prep boarding school. After he graduated, he attended Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts. During his college years, he played for college football team. He graduated from college in 1998 with a degree in exercise psychology. After finishing college he realized that nothing will come out from Football so he moved to California with $500 in his pocket and a plan. He dedicated himself to becoming a professional bodybuilder and he earned for living by driving limousines.
Obviously, John Cena bulked up really good and eventually met some guy who was all about wrestling. He told John that he should try that, so he did. In the end, he didn’t have anything to lose in that moment. He was cleaning toilets in some gym, driving limos and sleeping in his car. It couldn’t be worse.
That was the time when he decided that he wants to be a professional wrestler. John Cena just called his father one night and told him what his new job was. His typical day was, get up, go to the work, get out of the work, go to the gym, go to the show 2 hours earlier, wrestle, break down everything inside the ring, drive back home, repeat. The WWE sent him to train in their camp, he chose the name “Prototype” and thought of some good catch phrases like “You Can’t See Me”, “Never Give Up”, and “Hustle, Loyalty, Respect”. He first appeared in the ring against Kurt Angle on 27th of June, 2002. Pretty soon he became crowd favorite.
During his time in WWE, he mostly portrayed heroic characters. He was a villain only during one year of his engagement.
Cena also played in some movies. WWE Studios (part of the company which finances movies) directed a movie for John. The first movie was called “The Marine” and it was distributed by 20th Century Fox and released in 2006.
His second movie was “12 Rounds” also produced by WWE Studios. It was released in 2009.
He also appeared in comedies like “Trainwreck”, “Sisters”, and “Daddy’s Home”. His newest movie “The Wall” was one of his best performances but the movie itself didn’t go so well. The subject in a matter and bad ending destroyed it at the box office.
John Cena Ethnicity
His father is of Italian and Albanian descent and his mother has a little bit of English and a little bit of French Canadian ancestry. He is white and a citizen of the United States of America.
John Cena Meme
John Cena was also a rapper for a short period of time. He released his debut album in 2005 titled “You Can’t See Me” after his catchphrase. There was a song called “My Time is Now” in that album, and that same song became his entrance song and a popular meme on sites like Vine and YouTube. The vine was called “Unexpected John Cena”. That Unexpected John Cena meme is now spread all throughout the Internet.
John Cena Net Worth
Because of his popularity, John has earned a lot of money in both WWE and movies. His current Net Worth is over $55 million.
John Cena Gay Twit
John Cena is a great supporter of democracy and open society philosophy. His opinion on this matter is that America does not belong to any one race, gender, or religion. He even twitted a twit in 2011 that it doesn’t matter if you are gay or not.
So it IS what it IS. Gay or straight. To quote "Dwayne", "it doesn't matter!"

It is important to mention that he twits motivational sentences almost every day. Good ones too.
