* DefeatingTheUndefeatable
** In Cena's eyes, CM Punk. Every encounter they've had, Punk had always come out on top. So for him to kick start his Road to ''[=WrestleMania=]'', he accepted Punks challenge for his Main Event spot on an episode of Raw. What followed was an near 30 minute match where Cena kicked out of, among other things, a ''piledriver'', a move banned in WWE, and then, finally defeated Punk.
** Due to Cena's place within in the WWE, defeating him, can be seen as defeating the undefeatable.

** As part of his gimmick, but also arguably just the man ''himself.'' When John Cena suffers a major injury, expect him to come back from it in half the amount of time it would take anyone else. This was played up in his comeback from a triceps tear. Originally he as going to be out for four-six months, but came back after two months. All throughout his match against Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio the commentators was discussing whether or not Cena was coming back too soon. It also led to widespread suspicion that the triceps tear is kayfabe.

* HeelFaceTurn: Cena's first heel run as Doctor of Thuganomics saw him cutting raps on everyone and insulting them in a very humorous manner, which lead the fans to cheer for more and more, which lead to his {{Face}} turn, and eventually becoming ''the'' face of the company.

** Several years later, he'd accuse Eve of trying to give him an STD by attempting to hug and kiss him. Same motivation: deliberately trying to shame Eve. Although he may have been implying that she wanted things to go further and he didn't want any parts of that.

Unusual for a career babyface, Cena has maintained his top spot for an unprecedented 10 years, partly though no fault of WWE's own: Wrestling/JeffHardy's merchandise outsold Cena's for three months straight, but WWE had to dump him after the Junk Squad raided his house; Wrestling/CMPunk hemmed and hawed until WWE finally made him a main event babyface. He quit the night after ''Royal Rumble 2014'', and {{Wrestling/Vince|McMahon}} was left [[NowWhat holding the bag]]; After fighting against it, the company finally gave [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] a push... then waited as he recuperated from ''shoulder'' surgery, and then ''neck'' surgery, and then complications with rehab, etc. Three contenders for the crown, and WWE has been burned three times. As a consequence, Cena is one of the most polarizing Superstars in [=WWE=] history, as older fans have [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks grown tired of him always winning]]. But he has also raised '''a child army''' of new fans, triggering a weekly shouting war of "LET'S GO CENA" and "CENA SUCKS".

'''John Felix Anthony Cena''', born April 23, 1977, is a {{Professional Wrestl|ing}}er currently working for the Wrestling/{{WWE}}. With a career spanning over 10 years, he rose through the pits of the midcard to become a legitimate success story, and is widely regarded is one of the biggest, if not ''the'' biggest superstar to ever grace WWE and the 21st century equivalent of Wrestling/HulkHogan.

* {{Badbutt}}: The most common explanation of his BaseBreaker status. The company pushes him as ''the'' face because he's badass enough to appeal to kids but his relatively squeaky clean image appeases the MoralGuardians who might otherwise not approve of their kids watching wrestling. It works, but leaves him coming off as incredibly boring by comparison with a lot of other superstars on the roster. And compared to Cena himself back when he was "The Doctor of Thuganomics" for that matter.

* EnemiesEqualsGreatness: This seems to be a case with Cena today. According to the [=WWE=], [[BaseBreaker it doesn't matter whether Cena is cheered or booed]]; what matters is that he gets the biggest crowd reaction in all of [=WWE=]. Not to mention that selling all of the [[TakeThatAudience "Cena Sucks" T-shirts for his haters]] helped boost his merchandise.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Cena's current situation essentially. Being basically both [[BaseBreaker officially the biggest Face and virtually the biggest Heel]], the only thing Cena can do that won't be hated by half the audience is to not appear on the show at all. If he sticks to his 'Hustle-Loyalty-Respect' persona, there are usually [[BeingGoodSucks responses]] to that. However, if he tries to show some edge or attitude... well, you can just look at CriticalBacklash and DesignatedHero to see how well that has been accepted.

* MortonsFork: The smarks are utterly ''sick'' of Cena for being an [[GoodIsBoring incorruptible pure-white babyface forever]] and never changing. A heel turn would probably do his wrestling cred no end of good, and if he was pretty much any other wrestler, that's probably what he'd do. But he is THE #1 childrens' idol in wrestling history, particularly the sick kids he helps for Make-A-Wish, so having him turn heel would be nothing short of cruel, if not outright ''inhumane.'' He'd be damned if he did, so he continues to be damned for not doing it, doing his best to tune out the endless torrents of hate he gets from the people he knows he just can't please.
