John Cena made his WWE debut 15-years ago today. On the June 27, 2002, episode of WWE SmackDown, a young Cena faced off against “The Olympic Gold Medalist” Kurt Angle. Cena lost the match, but kicked some serious ass and earned big time respect right from jump street.
Cena has made a lot of transformations throughout his career. He went from angry jar-head to “Doctor of Thuganomics” to WWE Champion all the way back to being an angry jar-head. Cena has brought nothing but ruthless aggression with just a pinch of sophomoric humor.
Johnny boy is already a 16-time world champion in the pro wrestling business. That only person to hold that many world championship is…you guessed it! WOOOOOOOO! “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair. “I couldn’t be happy for John Cena…he’s worked hard, I’m happy for him,” says Flair.
Cena success doesn’t only lie in the wrestling ring. The multi-time champion’s career has branched off into Hollywood. Roles are just lining up for Mr. Hustle, Loyalty & Respect. His role in the film Trainwreck was quite funny.
Happy 15th anniversary in wrestling, John! Half of the fans hate on you, but I’m sure most of them will miss you when you hang up the boots for good. Plus, you have some unfinished business breaking The Nature Boy’s record. Imagine that. So many smarks will be triggered. And you thought Kim K’s buttocks broke the internet. Just wait for that 17th world title win.
Now, only if we can get this guy in the White House…
You might not be able to see Cena, but you can get an eyeful of the doctor’s dank memes, images, and gifs.
