John grew up in West Newbury, Massachusetts. Back when he was just seven-year-old, John Cena was obsessed with the WWF and was a huge wrestling fan. To this day, he still is. The likes of WWF legends such as Hulk Hogan, The Iron Sheik, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Ultimate Warrior and Rik Flair, gave John the imagination and motivation to want to become a wrestler himself. This set the spark that would set him on his way to becoming one of the greatest wrestlers to entertain in the WWE.
Back in the day, John would wrestle with his friends in his back yard and in the basement, pretending to be their WWE wrestling heroes. They would put so much effort to emulate the wrestling shows that they even made their very own belts out of cardboard, coloured paint and foil. They even put on shows for their families with big Friday night match ups while everyone ate popcorn.
