Regardless of your feelings on the matter, John Cena is the biggest star in pro wrestling and has been for the last seven or eight years. He's everything WWE could ever want:
- A gifted speaker (regardless of whether or not you like his promos nowadays, they'd be much worse delivered by someone else).
- Has "the look".
- Not scandal-prone.
- Usually has good matches (even if you don't think he contributes a lot to them).
- Is willing to devote his life to the company, doing any public relations/promotional gigs they need him for, visiting as many Make-A-Wish kids as possible (he's the record holder), etc.
It was fairly obvious that he would be a big star from the day he started wrestling school, but just how big was the question. So how did he get where he is now? Let's take a look...
