10 Things Vince McMahon Wants You To Forget About John Cena
From his humble beginnings as “The Prototype” to his days as “The Doctor of Thuganomics,” John Cena’s meteoric rise to the top of WWE is unprecedented.
He arrived at the company in 2002 and even then, he showed just a hint of the dominance that has followed his 14-year career when he nearly toppled one of the most established Superstars on the roster at the time, Kurt Angle – in his debut match.
Cena is a real-life Superman to millions of young children all over the world who tune into WWE programming each and every week. Just like Superman, Cena recovers from injuries faster than you can say “kryptonite,” and rarely takes much time off TV (excluding his most recent absence). His philanthropic work for organizations like the Make-A-Wish Foundation only further cements his standing.
However, it’s not all dollar signs and championship gold for the leader of the “Cenation.” In fact, we’re sure Vince McMahon would rather you forget these career blemishes:
10. He Once Crapped Himself During A Match
What is the most embarrassing thing a wrestler can do in the ring? Botch a move? Slip and fall off the top rope? Get no reaction when they try to cater to the crowd?
While all of those things are humiliating, they’re not quite as pooping your pants during a match. Just ask John Cena – after all, he’s the one that did the above-mentioned pooping.
Cena had food poisoning while wrestling in Saskatchewan, according to what he told girlfriend Nikki Bella on hit reality show Total Divas. Although Cena claims he doesn’t remember who he was facing, many think his foe was Scott Steiner.
Despite being sick, “Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, Respect” pushed on and wrestled anyway. If it was during his khaki shorts phase, we’re sure the crowd would have gotten more than what they bargained for. Luckily, this happened at a house show and not a televised event.
