* RootingForTheEmpire: It had to take a wrestler with nuclear XPacHeat to cause the crowd to root for Cena over his opponent but it has happened. During the height of his feud with Roman Reigns there were more people that cheered Cena over Reigns.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: During his feud with Wrestling/RandyOrton, at ''Night of Champions 2009'', John pulled [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] to the stage as an example of "hard work", claiming that John gave [[FanNickname DBD]] his only title shot in the year "AND HE WON!", later shaking his hand while looking forward to a rematch. Fast forward to 2017, and they became brothers-in-law due to each of them marrying [[Wrestling/TheBellaTwins a Bella twin]] (Daniel married Brie and John is engaged and soon married to Nikki).


Added DiffLines:

** His feud with Wrestling/JohnLaurinaitis, considering that [[StageNames Johnny Ace]]'s fiancee is the mother of his soon-to-be-wife Nikki Bella.

** Most people will point out that it isn't the real-life persona of Cena they hate, it's the IDEA of Cena. John is an OK wrestler, but he is pushed so astoundingly hard compared to other people who should be on his level. The only people to even manage to claw with their fingertips at Cena's rung on the ladder are CMPunk and DanielBryan, and even those two were kicked back down after a few months. This was the first of several bullet points (almost spoken verbatim) in Wrestling/CMPunk's now infamous WorkedShoot promo in the summer of 2011.

* 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]]
