'''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 as one of the biggest, if not ''the'' biggest superstar to ever grace WWE, and the 21st century equivalent of Wrestling/HulkHogan.

Added DiffLines:

** After his return from injury, he started a feud with his TNA counterpart from 2002 to 2014, Wrestling/AJStyles. Cena and Styles were both positioned as the faces of their respective companies and it seemed to be very impossible for them to stand together in the same ring. That all changed in 20 "freaking" 16 when not only did they put some classic matches, but for the first time ever Cena has not won a singles match against his rival.

Added DiffLines:

* TheAce: In-Kayfabe 2005 onward, who somehow manages to "win" even when he loses. Which he rarely does.
** His 2015 renaissance showed he has it in him to be one for real as well, putting on quality matches with just about anyone he wrestled.

It goes without saying that the Cenation holds claim to a ''lot'' of titles. He's also a one time Wrestling/MoneyInTheBank winner, in which he became known as the first person to unsuccessfully cash in.

in. (Through no fault of his own, however. Wrestling/TheBigShow interfered in the match, so Cena won the match, but not the title. Coincidentally, Cena would later be responsible for causing the first person to lose the match after cashing in Money in the Bank, namely Wrestling/DamienSandow.)

** He's been subverting it frequently as of late and pulling out a lot of new moves out of the bag when you least expect it. Absolutely ''no one'' expected him to do a ''freaking Canadian Destroyer'' to Kevin Owens.

** He's been subverting it frequently as of late and pulling out a lot of new moves out of the bag when you least expect it. Absolutely ''no one'' expected him to do a ''freaking Canadian Destroyer'' to Kevin Owens.Owens or a ''Sunset Flip Powerbomb'' on AJ Styles. It could be argued that since both Owens and Styles are two of the absolute best workers in professional wrestling, Cena feels more confident in pulling off moves he never usually performs when wrestling with either of them.

* 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".
