List of Facts / Trivia:
1. He didn’t always go by John Cena
Originally, Cena was known as The Prototype when he wrestled for Ultimate Pro Wrestling in California back in 1999. The Prototype eventually became world champion and would stay with UPW until March 2001.
2. He has an athletic background
Long before John Cena was impressing fans with his feats of strength, he played college football at Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts, a division III school. Cena achieved All-American honors as the team’s center. After graduating with a degree in exercise physiology, John Cena went on to train as a bodybuilder before taking to pro wrestling.
3. Athletics is in Cena’s blood too
It seems being an athlete was always in his genes as his grandfather, Tony Lupien, was a professional baseball player. His father, John Cena, Sr., worked in the pro wrestling as a ring announcer who also handled other areas of the business.
4. It wasn’t always easy
Though the future champion would one day become one of the most famous professional wrestlers to ever step inside the squared circle, Cena left for California after college with just $500. He worked as a limo driver and supplemented his income by folding towels and cleaning toilets at the world famous Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach. As he didn’t have enough money to afford an actual apartment, he slept in his 1991 Lincoln Continental.
5. Three years later, he was on television
After rising up the ranks of UPW, Cena was eventually scouted by the WWE. He first had to spend time with one of the company’s subsidiaries, Ohio Valley Wrestling, before they would call him up to the big leagues. Once John Cena arrived, though, his ascension was quick. He debuted on TV by picking a fight with one of the company’s biggest stars, the Olympian, Kurt Angle. Within two years, he would capture his first belt, the United States Championship, by beating The Big Show at Wrestlemania XX.
6. Some call him “The Marky Mark of Wrestling”
Over the years, many fans have taken notice of John Cena’s good looks and sculpted frame. That, plus the fact that his original gimmick was as a rapping wrestler, earned him the nickname, “The Marky Mark of Wrestling.”
7. There’s even an album
In reality, Cena is actually a huge fan of hip-hop, which is where the angle came from. He released an album in 2005 called You Can’t See Me which eventually reached number 15 on the U.S. Billboard chart.
8. Cena currently dates another star
John Cena filed for divorce in May of 2012 and now dates former WWE star, Nikki Bella. The two live together in Tampa Bay.
9. “Trainwreck” earned him critical praise
Though it wasn’t a huge role, John Cena was cast in Judd Apatow’s “Trainwreck” opposite Amy Schumer, who also wrote the script. Cena played a muscle-bound softy – a role he said is very similar to his real-life personality – and impressed critics.
Don’t expect to see John Cena take a curtain call anytime soon. He has stated that he plans on never retiring from the WWE.
