What is John Cena’s net worth? Fans want to know and we have the answer! John Felix Anthony Cena was born on April 23, 1977, in West Newbury, Massachusetts. Cena enjoyed bodybuilding and began the sport early in his childhood.
He became a legit gym rat by the time he turned 15. After graduating from high school, he went to Springfield College to study exercise physiology. Much like LeBron James and Michael Jordan, John Cena played on the school’s football team and was a Division III All-American offensive lineman.
After graduating college, Cena left the east coast and moved to Los Angeles to become a bodybuilder, much to his family’s dismay.
He had just $500 in his bank account when he decided to move. Needless to say, John Cena’s net worth was very little at this time, and it was a struggle to survive. He cleaned toilets and folded towels at Gold’s Gym as well as lived out of his car.
Cena’s life changed while talking to a wrestler at Gold’s Gym. The wrestler encouraged Cena to take classes at Ultimate Pro Wrestling, which was a former developmental company of the WWE. Cena wisely took the wrestler’s advice, and on April 27, 2000, he had won the UPW title. He got the attention of WWE execs, and in 2001 he signed a developmental contract with the company to work at Ohio Valley Wrestling.
He captured the Ohio Valley Wrestling title in 2002 and then made his WWE debut later in 2002 by joining the Smackdown roster. He was an instant hit with the audience at home and just two years later, he defeated The Big Show at Wrestlemania XX. He became one of the most popular wrestlers in the WWE and even built a name for himself outside the ring.
Much like The Rock, not only did John Cena dominated the ring, he was also dominated the screen. In 2006, Cena made his feature film debut in The Marine. Since then, the wrestler-turned-actor has starred in multiple projects, including 12 Rounds, Trainwreck, and Daddy’s Home.
And just to prove he can do it all, Cena released a rap album titled You Can’t See Me in 2005. It debuted at number 15 on the Billboard 200 and has sold over one million copies worldwide. According to the last report, John Cena’s net worth stands at $55 million. Not bad for a dude who moved to California 20 years ago with just $500 in his pocket.
