ohn Felix Anthony Cena is an American wrestler, actor, television host and former rapper. Widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, he is tied with Ric Flair for most world titles in professional wrestling history. He rose to fame in WWE after taking on the role of a trash-talking rapper. In 2004 he won his first singles title, the United States Championship. The next year he won the WWE Championship for the first time and his character subsequently morphed into a clean “Superman-like” hero.
He then led the company as a franchise player and public face for the next decade. A joint 16-time world champion, Cena has won the WWE Championship thirteen times, a record for the title. He is also a five-time United States Champion, four-time World Tag Team Champion, two-time Royal Rumble matchwinner, one-time Money in the Bank matchwinner, and has headlined several major WWE pay-per-view events, including their flagship event, WrestleMania, five times.
His professional wrestling career has received a mixed reception from critics and audiences, with praise for his character work and promotional skills, but also for his alleged over-representation and screen placement compared to other wrestlers. Cena first starred in The Marine (2006) and was acclaimed for his performances in Trainwreck (2015), Ferdinand (2017), Blockers, and Bumblebee (both 2018). His debut studio album You Can’t See Me (2005) went platinum. Outside of his work in entertainment, Cena is known for his involvement with numerous charitable causes, most notably the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
John Cena has an estimated net worth of $60 million.
