Biography

Arguably one of the most popular figures in the world of professional wrestling at the dawn of the 21st century, John Cena combined extreme physical abilities with a flair for theatrics and chiseled good looks to become one of the unforgiving sport's few practitioners to enjoy a career beyond the blood-stained arenas that made him a star. An aspiring body builder, Cena first turned to wrestling on the advice of a fellow gym rat and soon contracted with wrestling impresario Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment. At the WWE, Cena quickly rose through the ranks to become a fan favorite over the likes of rival Kurt Angle, with such signature moves as the spine-crunching "F-U." Having secured the WWE's top titles within five years, Cena branched out into other arenas, first with his debut hip-hop album, You Can't See Me (2005) - named for his popular catchphrase - then as the star of the action-adventure movie "The Marine" (2006). An injury in the ring in 2007 created a temporary setback for the wrestler, although he made strides as an actor in projects like the violent thriller "12 Rounds" (2009) and the inspirational family drama "Legendary" (2010). On the comeback trail in the years following his injury, Cena racked up a score of WWE wins, including one as the last man standing in 2013's Royal Rumble Match. Not surprisingly, Cena's outgoing personality and across-the-board appeal allowed him to make significant inroads into entertainment venues far beyond the confines of the wrestling ring.
