John Cena: WWE legend breaks world record for Make-A-Wish foundation

John Cena Make-A-Wish Foundation World Record Broken

John Cena is arguably the biggest Superstar the WWE has ever produced, with him going on to conquer Hollywood as well as his exploits with the professional wrestling organisation.

By becoming the face of the company for so many years, John Cena accumulated an eye-wateringly ridiculous number of adoring fans, which leaves plenty dreaming of one day meeting their hero.

Before heading into a leading role as the title character in Peacemaker, he dominated the WWE, becoming a 16-time world champion.

John Cena’s charity work

Away from the ring and film set, John Cena is an incredibly giving human being and gives more than his fair share to charitable causes.

The company has teamed up with the Superstar to be the face of their anti-bullying campaign, Be a Star as he was used as a poster boy for all things good by the WWE.

More recently, the WWE teamed up with John Cena to send him to Holland to meet a young fan who had fled the destruction of his home in Ukraine following the invasion from Russia. He spent the day with the refugees, giving them memories that will last a lifetime and make an incredibly tough period a little bit easier.

Outside of his work with the WWE, John Cena has been an incredible contributor to the Make-A-Wish foundation that aims to grant children with terminal illnesses one last wish, with plenty wanting to meet their hero.

John Cena made his first wish for the organisation in 2002, making their 1000th wish in 2012, with his work being recognised with the landmark wish.

When talking about the work he does with the charity, John Cena said: “If you ever need me for this ever, I don’t care what I’m doing, I will drop what I’m doing and be involved because I think that’s the coolest thing.

“I just drop everything,” Cena said when he was honoured for granting 500 wishes. 

“If I can offer a fantastic experience, I’ll be first in line to do my part.”
