No one since Hulk Hogan (and, more recently, The Rock), has managed to parlay wrestling fame into mainstream celebrity like John Cena. But despite his frequent and high profile projects, the wrestler-turned-superstar has remained somewhat elusive — and, as a result, there may be more than a few things you didn't know about John Cena, his life, and his storied career.
The John Cena biography begins in West Newbury, Massachusetts, where the legendary WWE champion was born on April 23, 1977. He graduated from a private boarding school and attended Springfield College, where he earned a degree in — what else — exercise physiology. After initially pursuing a professional bodybuilding career, Cena found his groove in the world of wrestling, which, in turn, has led to his successes in several other ventures.
