John Cena went by the Prototype or Mr. P in OVW (Ohio Vally Wrestling) while his time there, he face 3rd Generation star, Randy Orton. John and Randy have fueded both in OVW and in WWE. John debuted on the June 27, 2002 edition of Friday Night SmackDown. He started a fued that night. He debut as the Prototype, he came out to the ring after Kurt Angle asked the lockerroom if they were scared to face him. The next week on SmackDown, John showed up with the Chain Gang attire. With the “Word Life” theme. He got a big pop from the crowd. John picked up the name “The Champ” after winning the United States Championship from Kurt Angle. Later on he gained the name “Dr. of Thugonmics” during the fued for the WWE Championship. At Wrestlemania 22 John Cena won not just his first Mania, but the WWE Championship for the first. He had two title, but WWE Originaly stripped him of the United States title since he was now holding the WWE Championship. Soon after winning the title, John made a custom WWE Championship, which we see today, the spinner belt. In 2005, John was the #1 draft pick to head to Monday Night Raw! The following week, he appeared on Chris Jericho’s High Light Reel, where he rap battled Christian. Which lead to a fued between them. In 2005 the Chain Gang gimmick started to fade away and the “Hustle, Loyalty, & Respect” gimmick came into play. Cena wore those three words everytime he stepped into the ring. Cena was the very person that he set out to be. He has a connect with the fans unlike any other WWE Superstar at the time. Cena slowly became the face of the WWE and gained the name “Poster Boy”, fans that use to cheer him, slowly started to boo him. Cena slowly became hated by fans for becoming the poster boy. But John never gave up on the fans that backed him up since day 1 and is still behind him. The gimmick he uses now is “Never Give Up Cenation”, there’s fans that live by that, they still cheer Cena like they did when he had the “Hustle, Loyalty, Respect” gimmick, like they did when he had the “Chain Gang” gimmick. Wheater you like or hate him, you gotta respect John Cena. Cena goes out to that ring every night to entertain the fans. Not just his, but the entire WWE Universe. Just like all the WWE Superstars and Divas do. John is there to entertain, thats what he loves doing and he’ll keep doing it. John has the Chain Gang and Cenation behind him a 110% of the way. John grew up watching guys like Roddy Roddy Piper, Stone Cold, The Rock, and more like some of us have. He has as much respect for the WWE Hall of Famers as we do. They paved the road, without them or and of the Superstars or Divas including John, then we would never have seen WWE. Wrestling would more then likly be dead. I wouldnt be writing this blog.
