In WWE, John Cena gained industry fame after adopting a persona of a trash-talking rapper, and he won his first singles title, the United States Championship, in 2004. The next year, Cena would win the WWE Championship for the first time.
Following that, Cena's character transitioned into a "Superman-like" heroic figure, and subsequently led the company as its franchise player and public face for the next decade. Cena has headlined several major WWE pay-per-view events, closing the company's flagship annual event, WrestleMania, five times.
He has also won several championships in his career, being a five-time United States Champion, a four-time world tag team champion, and a WWE record sixteen-time world champion. He is also a two-time Royal Rumble match winner, and a Money in the Bank ladder match winner.
In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, he talked about his social media presence: “It’s almost like my journal. That’s who I am as a human. I generate these from self-reflection and self-exploration.
I never try to be too judgy or too pushy, I just try to put out thoughts to the world. I have a bunch of posts backlogged and one that I’ll post soon is, ‘If you think these posts are about you, you’re right. If they can resonate with you, then they’re about you”.
