* EpilepticTrees:[[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] once jokingly theorised that Cena was the result of genetic experiment to create the perfect wrestler, meaning his character in OVW was literally a "Prototype"- the original iteration of John Cena. He also suggested that there is a cloning lab beneath WWE headquarters containing dozens of John Cenas at various stages of development from fetus to adult, and whenever a John Cena is injured, they simply kill the current clone and activate a new one, explaining Cena's career longevity and miraculous on- and offscreen healing abilities.

** August 1st 2017 on Smackdon has him fight ''Shinsuke Nakamura'' of all wrestlers and he actually delivers a hell of a match against him.

** His recent feud with Wrestling/RomanReigns also has shades of this, as it strongly mirrors his previous feud with ''[[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]'' of all people, for a couple of reasons: one, Cena's current status as a part-timer is exactly the same as The Rock's during their feud; and two, Cena is facing off with the guy being groomed as his successor to be the face of the company, who ironically is also Rock's cousin.

* PoisonOakEpilepticTrees: After Cena took some time off towards the end of 2015 so he could host his new TV show, the terrible booking of the main roster became more and more apparent, culminating in ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries 2015'', the ending of which was publicly lambasted by almost all of the Internet, including one Wrestling/MickFoley, who made a post on Facebook echoing the thoughts of practically every fan even remotely privy to how things work in the company (which might as well just be every fan at this point), after the equally horrible ''Raw'' the night after. After ''that'' fiasco, many began to admit that they actually '''''missed''''' Cena, leading to some theorizing (half-jokingly, half-not) that this is all some elaborate plot of VinceMcMahon's to get Cena over with the smark crowd again.

** AND HIS NAME IS JOHN CENA! [[note]]A radio show did a prank call using John Cena's theme as a way to troll a wrestling fan's wife. During the call, a BaitAndSwitch was pulled where it seemed like a lady was calling about the Marines, but just as she said a former decorated Marine needs her support, they use the line.[[/note]]

** The fact that he did the introductory speech for Wrestling/KurtAngle during his 2017 Hall of Fame induction counts as this, since both men have had derogatory {{Crowd Song}}s to the tune of their entrance themes (the "You Suck" chants on Angle, to the infamous "John Cena Sucks!" Chants). May also double as HeartwarmingInHindsight since Cena's debut match was with Angle.

*** Lampshaded ruthlessly by CM Punk on commentary, pointing out that he was on the show more since being fired than he was when he was employed.

* CreatorsPet: Cena's character largely attracts the hate that it does because of his overbooking, with him getting belts and matches that he hasn't earned and never taking a "clean" loss, as well as his highly generic and formulaic matches. Almost nobody has a problem with the performer, who's widely respected as a wrestler and a man, but his character is seen as irrevocably tainted.



* XPacHeat: Unlike the TropeNamer, part of the fanbase directs this at the way Cena is booked, rather than at the man himself, and many who cite this claim they would like him more if he turned heel or left the main event. (But make no mistake, there are plenty of people who really do hate him; "Cena sucks!" chants have even shown up in promotions he's never worked for.) But because his fanbase keep buying tickets to shows he's heavily advertised on, and his merchandise sells more than any other superstar[[note]]Both Jeff Hardy and CM Punk have sold more than Cena at one point or another for a short while before Cena's next shirt put him back on top[[/note]], WWE won't risk killing their biggest cash cow and continue the same booking that gives him this. Truth of the matter is, people ''do'' like Cena, or at the very least know that he can be ''very'' entertaining when he wants to be, but he isn't allowed to change his character due to his position in the company. Thus, the heat isn't really for him, the performer -- it's for the guys who book him that way. Thus one could say that John Cena the ''character'' is TheScrappy, while John Cena the ''performer'' is well-liked, or at least well-respected.
