Maybe no WWE Superstar can relate to the fans as much as John Cena.
After all, before Cena became an all known name in the wwe, before he became an accomplished rapper and before he earned the leading role in a major motion picture, he was a WWE fan. Cena came to live events, made homemade signs and even collected WWE toys. All in hope of one day wrestling in the ring himself.
And Cena's dream came true in fashion at Wrestlemania 21 when he beat JBL for the WWE Championship. In the Staples Center, the same arena where he watched many matches as a fan, Cena won the WWE Championship.
A former football star at Springfield College, Cena was addicted to training and music as he was growing up. After a great bodybuilding career, he began his wrestling carreer not very long after he left college. The rest is history.
Now, his amazing physique and great mic skills make him one of the top Superstars on RAW.
But Cena can do much more than look good and drop a smooth rhyme. He is also an determined and accomplished WWE competitor, despite making his debut less than three years ago.
Cena is a multi-time U.S Champ and current WWE Champion. He started his first U.S. Championship reign in great fashion by defeating 500 pound big show! at WrestleMania XX.
In June, 2002, Cena had one of the most memorable debuts in SmackDown! history. After Angle challenged anyone in the back to a match, Cena, looking for a big break, made his way to the ring.
Angle would win that match, but Cena took him to the brink, impressing everyone there that night, including the SmackDown! roster. In his short time with WWE, Cena has already got quite a resume.
By April, 2003, Cena was already in his first ppv main event, facing Brock Lesnar for the WWE title at Backlash.
He defended his U.S title in a thrilling best-of-five series with Booker T in fall, 2004. In the 2005 Royal Rumble, Cena was the last Superstar to go over the top, as Batista went on to emerge victorious.
At No Way Out, Cena pinned Angle in the final of the No. 1 Contender's Tournament, landing Cena a spot against JBL for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 21.
Cena, of course, defeated JBL at WrestleMania 21 and defend his new WWE title against his nemesis in a brutal I Quit Match at Judgment Day. Cena was on a roll and it looked like he'd be ruling SmackDown! for a long time to come.
But WWE fans were shocked to learn that the WWE Champ was the first 2005 Draft Lottery pick, sending the Dr. of Thuganomics over to RAW. Cena, the champion that he is, told the RAW roster, "If you want some, come get some."
Cristian and Jericho answered the challenge and the two vied for the WWE title against Cena in a Triple Threat Match at Vengeance. Cena once again came out on top as he pinned Christian after an FU.
Through all of his success, Cena has never forgotten his roots, which began in the bleachers watching the likes of Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, HBK and Bret Hart.
He refers to his fans as members of his "Chain Gang." Together, he KNOWS, they can't lose. And so far, the combination of their support and his talent, have made John Cena one of the top Superstars around
