John Cena is a WWESuperstar who is the transcendent sports-entertainer of today's generation, priding himself as a fan favorite who's always ready for a fight. In WWE All Stars, Cena is a selectable character classed as a Brawler.
John Cena had honestly never even considered a career in WWE. Though a huge WWE fan since childhood, he root for heroes like Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, and Shawn Michaels. Instead, he flew out to California in 2000, to pursue a profession in bodybuilding (a move he now admits to making simply because his father had told him he wouldn’t make it out there). But while working behind the counter of Gold’s Gym in Venice, a discussion with a young hopeful encouraged Cena to begin training for the ring. He was instantly hooked, and became motivated to learn everything he could about his newfound craft. He obviously proved a quick study. By June 2002, he had joined the SmackDown roster, and less than a year later headlined the first of what has since become countless main-event matches.
That said, Cena has never forgotten his roots. In fact, remembering where he came from has helped him evolve into the man he is today: a well-versed hip-hop artist, a successful movie star and a blue-collared Superstar who’s always ready to fight. He leads his WWE fan-based army into battle with the mission statement he’s been down with since Day One: hustle, loyalty and respect. It is those tenets that have taken Cena from a guy working at a gym into an ironclad lock future inductee of the WWE Hall of Fame.
