Personal Life

He attended Central Catholic High School, Massachusetts, and then transferred to Cushing Academy in the same region. He further studied at Springfield College, graduating in 1999 with a degree in Exercise Physiology.

Career (Wrestling)

Cena started training to be a professional wrestler in 1999 and made his unofficial debut in the then WWF in October 2000 in an episode of SmackDown.

He made his official WWE TV debut on June 24, 2002, answering an open challenge made by Kurt Angle. Between that time and 2016, he made a huge impression in the company and became regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time (he is tied with Ric Flair for the most world championships reigns in pro wrestling history).

From 2017, Cena has been on and off the wrestling circuit, juggling his Hollywood career while making appearances in the WWE.

Film Career

He got his first movie role with the WWE-produced action film The Marine (2006). His next film, also produced by WWE, was the action thriller 12 Rounds (2009).

His other movie roles include The Wall (2017), Ferdinand (2017), Bumblebee (2018), Playing with Fire (2019), Dolittle (2020) The Suicide Squad (2021), and Vacation Friends (2021).

Quotes

"I admire the military. I guess in a world of villains and heroes, they're my heroes. Their dedication, their commitment, their discipline, their code of ethics."

"I have certain things that I stand for, certain things that I believe in, and if you don't like it and you tell me to go to hell, I think that's your God-given right as a fan. It's one of those deals where I'm that one guy who is outside of that realm of a good guy, bad guy. I'm just me, and it elicits a response both positive and negative."

"I'm the guy who'll drive 250 miles tonight and be at the gym tomorrow at 10 A.M. when people are still sleeping in. I'm the guy who'll fly to Australia and find a gym. Fly back and first thing I do off the plane is work out before I shower or eat."

Trivia

He has four brothers; one older and three younger.

Is best friends with fellow wrestler Randy Orton.

His last name is the Spanish word for the word 'dinner'.
