John Cena - Page 2

From ruling the wrestling arena to owing the stage with his rap, John Felix Anthon Cena Jr. is the five-time United States Champion, four-time World Tag Team Champion, and a 16-time World Champion. John Cena is also New York’s best-selling author and the record-setting Make-A-Wish granter –granting over 600 wishes at the Make-A-Wish foundation.

The muscled Massachusetts kid, known for his rapper-persona, has owned the ring when he threw down Kurt Angle for a chance to become a true WWE Superstar.

From thereon, Cena went on to become the ‘Face that Runs the Place’; gaining respect from his peers, and love from his fans.

However, the success didn’t come easy as he faced critical comments from his fans and the wrestling peers. Cena’s wrestling resume of defeated foes consists of the likes of – The Rock, Randy Orton, Batista, Brock Lesnar, and Triple H, who later went on to be included in the WWE Wall of the Fame.

Having defeated several big names in the ring, Cena instituted an open-challenge policy to anyone who’d think they can knock him off. Preaching an ethos of “Hustle, Loyalty, Respect”, Cena had amassed a battalion of followers whom he dubbed as the “Cenation,” while also accumulating enough hardware to fill a Home Depot.

Apart from winning numerous wrestling titles, Cena has also starred in films such as – The Marine (2006), 12 Rounds (2009), Trainwreck (2015), Ferdinand (2017), Bumblebee (2018), and F9 (2021). He released a rap album called ‘You Can’t See Me’ in 2005 which went platinum.

Early Life and appearances in WWE

Before making his name in the wrestling industry, Cena played football as NCAA Division III All-American Center in the football team of the Springfield College in Springfield.

In 1998, he graduated from college with a degree in exercise physiology and body movement. Coming out of the graduation college, Cena decided to pursue a career in bodybuilding while he also worked as a limousine driver.

In 1999, Cena started training as a professional wrestler at the California-based Ultimate University of Ultimate Pro Wrestling (UPW), which was operated by Rick Bassman.

Once in the ring, he started using a semi-robotic character known as The Prototype, with the fewer episodes being featured in the Discovery Channel program – Inside Pro Wrestling School. Being successful in the in-ring role, Cena held the UPW Championship for 27 days in April 2000.

With his fame on the rise, the erstwhile World Wrestling Federation (WWF) snapped him up in 2000 as he made his unofficial debut for the company on 10 October 2000. Billed as The Prototype, Cena taped in a dark match against Mikey Richardson in a losing attempt.

Signing and Ohio Valley Wrestling

After another tryout on 9th January 2001, at SmackDown in Oakland, John Cena was signed to a developmental contract with WWF that same year.

Using the ring name as The Prototype, Cena was assigned to the Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), the then-developmental territory of the company.

He held the OVW Heavyweight Championship for three months, holding the OVW Southern Tag Team Championship (with Rico Constantino) for two months. He wrestled at OVW from 2001 to 2002, even after his main call up in June 2002.

WWE Career

Cena made his official debut in WWE in June 2002, after answering to the open challenge posed by Kurt Angle on SmackDown, where he declared to possess “ruthless aggression” before he lost by a basic roll-up pin. Nevertheless, his efforts were lauded by the likes of Billy Kidman, Faarooq, Rikishi, and The Undertaker.

Following the near-debut-victory, Cena became fan-favorite when he defeated Chris Jericho in an upset at the Vengeance. After that, he went on to defeat the likes of Albert and D-Von Dudley while he was restricted to appear on Velocity for the remainder of September.

In October, Cena paired up with Kidman in a tag team tournament to crown the first SmackDown Tag Team Championship but lost in the first round to Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit. This led Cena to turn heel and attack Kidman the following as he blamed Kidman for their loss.

Later in 2002, Cena took on the nickname ‘The Doctor of Thuganomics’ for his rapper gimmick where he would rap before his every match. He also feuded with Los Guerreros, winning his personal battle against Chavo but losing the tag team against them alongside Edge.

He then ignited a feud with Brock Lesnar while he chased the WWE Championship for the first half of 2003. It was during this time that he started using one of his signature moves FU, named so to mock Lesnar's F-5. Cena also feuded against The Undertaker, defeating him and Orlando Jordan in a tag team match with the help of A-Train.

He participated in the Royal Rumble in 2004 where he made it to the final six before Big Show eliminated him.

In the number one contender’s tournament for the WWE Championship, Cena went on to defeat Kurt Angle in the finals at No Way Out and earned a spot in the WrestleMania 21 main event match of the SmackDown brand.

WWE Champion

After defeating Kurt Angle, Cena started feuding with the then-champion John “Bradshaw” Layfield (JBL) and his Cabinet. Cena defeated JBL at WrestleMania to win his first WWE Championship, having a spinner WWE Championship Belt made for himself.

JBL, then, took the original championship belt and claimed to still be the WWE Champion. Cena defeated him in an “I Quit” match at Judgement Day and retained the Championship, officially starting ‘The Age of John Cena’.

John Cena eventually lost the title to Edge in the first pay-per-view of 2006, where Edge cashed his Money in the Bank contract, taking advantage of a worn-out bloodied Cena, who had just won the Elimination Chamber match at New Year’s Revolution.

Edge held on to the title by using dubious means such as disqualification and using brass knuckles but was eventually defeated by Cena in a match of Edge’s choice – a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match at Unforgiven where Cena won the title back.

Following the victory, Cena got involved in a ‘Champion of the Champions’ match where three of the WWE brand's champions were to fight it out in a Triple Threat match (Cena, the World Heavyweight Champion King Booker and the ECW World Champion Big Show being the three champions). Cena lost after the interference from non-wrestler Kevin Federline.

In 2007, he successfully defended his title but suffered a legitimate torn pectoral muscle while executing a hip toss which required surgery. His rehabilitation period was estimated to be around seven months to a year and as a result, Cena was stripped of his title by Mr. McMahon.

In 2008, he suffered another injury in the neck, again needing a surgery. The following year Cena finally regained his title from JBL but lost it to the new superstar of RAW Sheamus.

At the 2010 Royal Rumble, Cena went on to defeat some of the biggest stars of the WWE franchise including Sheamus, Triple H, and Randy Orton to win back the title. Having won the title, Cena was immediately challenged by Batista, with Cena losing the challenge. However, Cena won it back from Batista at WrestleMania.

He was then forced to join Nexus upon losing against Wade Barrett at Hell in a Cell match. Meanwhile, Cena won the Tag Team Championship with David Otunga, defeating Cody Rhodes and Drew Mclntyre at Bragging Rights.

Cena then again won titles from Rey Mysterio and Alberto del Rio. In 2013, he became one of the few wrestlers who have won multiple Royal Rumble events. He also won the World Heavyweight Championship from Del Rio but lost it to Randy Orton who defeated him twice.

Return to WWE as “Free agent”

After winning the mixed tag team match for WrestleMania 33, pairing with Bella, Cena proposed Bella and went on a hiatus. In July 2017, Cena returned to WWE dubbing as a “Free Agent” working for both Raw and SmackDown. Meanwhile, he also faced personal troubles after his partner Nikki Bella and his WrestleMania loss to The Undertaker.

WWE Smackdown Preview (10/09/21): Brock Lesnar Returns; Edge vs. Rollins

WWE Smackdown returns to its home, this week with a very special edition where Brock Lesnar will make his appearance, going after the Universal championship. A solid Summerslam rematch will be in-store on the show when Edge faces Seth Rollins in their second encounter. Also, an Extreme Rules contract signing will be there on the show that takes place at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Brock Lesnar is the headliner of this Super SmackDown episode as he will be targeting the reigning Universal Champion, Roman Reigns. Last week, a backstage segment took place where Kayla Braxton was interviewing Paul Heyman when his phone started ringing. It was Lesnar’s theme song playing on the phone as the ringtone, and it was Lesnar who was calling. It appeared that The Beast wanted Heyman to deliver to WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Heyman later told his Tribal Chief that they have a problem in the form of Lesnar. Reigns wasn’t much concerned about the threat and said that when the time will be right, he will smash Lesnar, just like everybody else. But when Heyman informed him that Lesnar will be coming to Super SmackDown this week at Madison Square Garden, he started to worry. It’ll be interesting to see how things will fold out when these two titans meet in the ring.

With the Universal Championship shot hanging in the balance, the feud between Edge and Seth Rollins is far from over. Following Edge’s win at Summerslam 2021, these two superstars will battle, once again on Super Smackdown in the potential main event of the night.

Then in the post-match attack on Cesaro, Edge made the save for the Swiss Superman, and later in a backstage segment, he challenged Rollins in a rematch. The veteran claimed that he would burn Rollins down one more time at MSG and the situation would be far worse than what happened at SummerSlam 2021.

WWE Smackdown Preview (10/09/21): Contract Signing segment

Bianca Belair vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has been announced for the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view, last week. The post-Summerslam edition hosted a number-one contender’s Fatal-4-Way elimination match won by Belair who was obligated to get a title shot from Lynch.

Charlotte Flair Says That She Wants To Be The Female John Cena

The current WWE Raw Women’s champion Charlotte Flair who won the WWE Women’s championship for a total of twelve times recently made her mind clear when she said that she wanted to be the female John Cena of WWE.

Professional wrestling fans cannot be unaware with the name of John Cena. It is known to everyone that John Cena is the most successful wrestler in the history of WWE. He won the WWE World Championship a total of 16 times, which is a record indeed.

Charlotte Flair Says That She Wants To Be The Female John Cena

Nobody ever could win the WWE championship for so many times. The only person comes the closest is Triple H who won a total of 14 World Championships in WWE. And he is partially retired, so it does not seem like he would ever win the title once again.

Charlotte Flair wanting to be the female John Cena would not be anything difficult for her. In fact, she would be achieved even more Championship reigns than John Cena quite surely. Only six year time, he won the WWE women’s Championship a total of 12 times. Nobody comes close to her.

Charlotte Flair

She is a very young wrestler and she quite clearly has a long way to go. If she results for another 6 or 7 years only, she will clearly be more than ten women’s championships in that time. So her record will remain intact for quite a long time because it would not be easy to beat such a record.

Charlotte Flair who won the WWE Women’s championship for a total of twelve times recently spoke to DAZN where she made her mind clear when she said that she wanted to be the female John Cena of WWE. She said;

“First, I want to say there will never be another John Cena. He has meant that much to the industry. But I do know when I first started, and to this day, that is who I want to mold myself after and be like.

Charlotte Flair

“Unfortunately, I am a bad guy on camera, and Cena is the ultimate good guy. But I never lose that density or passion of wanting to embody WWE, wanting to do as much on the outside, for instance, media and the Special Olympics.

“There’s so many community events that we take part in. I hope to be mentioned in the same sentence as him. He’s John Cena. I’m a talent in the same company as him. Not even a peer but as a co-worker, and I still say it like that. He’s John Cena.

“Yes, I want to be the female John Cena. And if people say that, then I’m going to continue, even if I don’t feel like I’ve gotten there yet, but I’m going to continue to work as hard and feel that I want to be that way with everything I do.”

Nikki Bella Reveals Reason She Missed John Cena’s WWE Summerslam 2021 Match

It’s no secret that Nikki Bella wants to make a comeback to the professional wrestling ring, sometimes down the road. She alongside Brie Bella opened up about it on a number of occasions in the recent past. They do believe in having one last run remaining in them as a pair. WWE could also benefit a lot from their run given their mainstream popularity.

Considering Nikki Bella and twin sister Brie announced retirement before WWE introduced Women’s Tag Team Titles, it’s obvious that the duo would want to come back and challenge for the new straps. These are the only golds that the two pioneers have never achieved.

Nikki Bella Reveals Reason She Missed John Cena’s WWE Summerslam 2021 Match 19

“I talked to Brie about this on the daily. I look at Tamina and I look at Natalya and I see them hold those tag team championships and there’s nothing more that I want than to come back for that,” Nikki Bella told Extra affirming that the time for one last run isn’t over. “I truly hope that in the future I can come back in that ring and compete. Compete in front of my son! He would sit front row. It would be a dream. It’s not over for the Bella Twins. We will come back and make our mark.”

Nikki Bella featured in one last stint for WWE back in 2018. Her last match took place at Evolution PPV event in a failed effort against Ronda Rousey to win the Raw Women’s Title. Since then, she became engaged to her Dancing with the Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev and they probably hope to tie the knot this fall during the Thanksgiving weekend.

WWE Star Nikki Bella Teases 10 Million Celebration For Insta Family With Hot Photos

Nikki Bella talked about the future of baby Matteo

The two welcomed their only child, Matteo, who Nikki Bella believes to move into her father’s profession when he grows up.

“I feel like he thinks our family is just made up of ballroom dancers. He points his toes better than Mom. He going to be more graceful than Mom. Artem’s always like, ‘Yes! That’s my son! He points his toes so good.’ I think I’m just part of family full of dancers.”

Before moving in with Artem, Nikki Bella was in a high-profile relationship with John Cena. They began dating in 2012 and were engaged to be married at WrestleMania 33. But the couple called off the engagement just a year later and went their separate ways. Just like the elder Bella, Cena is also hitched up to Shay Shariatzadeh.

Regardless of what happened between them, Nikki Bella has publicly said that she’s still on good terms with John Cena. There was a possibility that the two could come into one frame at the bygone SummerSlam event. But that didn’t happen as Bella was banned from attending the show. She also didn’t watch her ex-boyfriend’s main-event match. It appears that she was too busy in casinos.

“You know, I actually have to say when you’re in Vegas, the tables took me away. “I was too busy playing roulette, and I was winning big. So I missed it.” (Quotes courtesy Wrestling Inc)

It won’t be a surprise if someday she stands with seventeen title reigns in her career given that currently she already possesses 12 title reigns by her name. From that perspective, she’s not behind another consistent player in WWE’s history in John Cena.

Many believed that John Cena was the perfect figure to break Ric Flair’s record of 16 world title reigns which still stands the highest accolade in professional wrestling. But it appears WWE is willing to topple that record with Charlotte Flair instead considering that she’s the legendary wrestler’s daughter. At least, her track record of title wins suggests this idea.

“There is nothing like the energy of being in that ring with the audience around you. There’s nothing like it. I’ve had the fortune and opportunity to do a whole lot of stuff…. that energy is indescribable, that place is my home, I wouldn’t be who I am without it.

“The audience is my family, so I love the environment, but I also want to be kind to them and I don’t want to do it selfishly just to do it. I still feel good, even though I finished second, I still feel pretty good. So, I still feel as if I have something to contribute, so time will tell.”
