5 things you didn't know about John Cena
John Cena is a name that is almost synonymous with WWE. We have seen him as the Doctor of Thuganomics, and also the Leader of Cenation but only a few people know that he was originally supposed to debut as The Prototype. The gimmick was supposed to be half-man and half-machine and he was not a big fan of it.
Similarly, there are a lot of things that only the die-hard fans of the WWE legend know. Here are 5 things you might not know about John Cena:
#5 – Make-A-Wish record holder
The WWE Universe and even those who rarely follow WWE know that Cena shares the record for most WWE Championship titles with Ric Flair. The two legends of pro-wrestling have held it 16 times in their career. Jon Stewart did try to stop it in 2015, but the leader of Cenation eventually won it one more time in 2017.
Apart from that almost unbreakable record, Cena has one in real life that is definitely going to take a lot to beat. He has fulfilled 600 Make-A-Wish requests so far and is the first celebrity ever to reach that milestone!
At the time of writing, Justin Bieber is second in the list but is far behind. The singer has fulfilled 250 wishes so far and is right now the only one who can come close to the WWE legend.
Talking about the incredible number of requests he has fulfilled, Cena told Sports Illustrated:
“I want to make sure everyone has a wonderful experience. For someone to get one wish and their wish is to hang out with you, that's the most awesome thing ever. I have great perspective of what it is and never take it for granted. I'll always try to give as much happiness as I possibly can.”
