John Cena might get a bad rap amongst some sections of the WWE Universe, but there is no doubt that the 15-time champion remains well and truly over with a large percentage of fans.
Indeed, his supporters are some of the most passionate in wrestling fandom and that was very obvious in a recent prank carried out by Cricket Wireless and the WWE Superstar himself.
Bringing the notorious 'Unexpected John Cena' meme to life, Cena surprised a group of genuine super fans who thought they were simply auditioning to introduce the wrestling legend in front of his poster. To say they lost their s**t when Cena burst through the canvas would be an understatement.

Check out the video below. Let's face it, your reaction to meeting John Cena in the flesh would probably be exactly the same:
From small kids who've been alive for less time than John Cena has been performing in the squared circle, to veteran wrestling fans who have clearly been watching the promotion for decades, everyone had basically the same reaction as the 250 lbs Superstar bounded towards them - a mixture of awe, excitement, and outright terror.
For all the criticism the veteran has taken in recent years, it is great to see just how much he means to fans who consider him their hero.
Having granted more than 500 Make-A-Wish requests over the years, Cena is an expert at fulfilling the dreams of fans across the world and deserves all the praise he gets for his work outside of the ring.
If he is able to find success in the squared circle and claim a 16th WWE title, you know those fans he surprised this week will be screaming even louder.
