WWE superstar John Cena has set new Guinness Book of World Records for granting the most wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
John granted 650 wishes, the highest so far by any superstar.
Make-A-Wish is a nonprofit organization that fulfills the wishes of critically ill children (under 18). This usually results in the child meeting their favorite celebrities. Several WWE Superstars have been associated with the nonprofit for years, with Cena himself having begun working with them in 2002, he has been the most requested celebrity.
Guinness World Records said no other celebrity has even 200 wishes, and the Leader of Cenation has at least thrice as many as anyone else.
People magazine interviewed the 16-time World Champion in November 2019 after passing 600 wishes, where he had this to say –
“I 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,'” Cena said. “We’ve all experienced that joy of giving a gift for the holidays where you just nail it — that’s the same gift I get in giving back to people’s lives, in being able to give them wonderful emotional moments,” said John
John Cena already holds the record for the most world championships won in WWE with 16. Ric Flair is tied with him for the number of world titles won, but most of the championships won by The Nature Boy were outside WWE.
Wrestler-turned-Hollywood star John Cena last appeared in WWE on the June 27 episode of RAW, his 20th anniversary in the company. His last match was way before that when he challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam 2021. His shooting schedule might suggest that The Suicide Squad actor will appear at WrestleMania 39.
