We already brought you part one of our list of 15 things you probably did not know about John Cena, and now we’re back with part two! Check out eight more fascinating facts about the rapper, actor and face of the WWE that you definitely (probably) did not know below. You might be surprised by what you find out!
Number Eight: He Studied Exercise Physiology. Not only is Cena the embodiment of physical perfection, but he also studied it in college! That might not come as much of a surprise, but it’s clear that the man has both brains and brawn.
Number Seven: He Has Always Had a Heart for Wrestling. Cena did not make his wrestling debut on television until June 27, 2002. He fought Kurt Angle, and while he did lose, the aggression and passion he displayed solidified a fan base that would only continue to grow in the future.
Number Six: He Outsold Dave Matthews. We already mentioned the success of Cena’s rap album, You Can’t See Me. However, did you know he outsold both Audioslave and the Dave Matthews Band after his album debuted? He outsold the two megastars during the week of June 6, 2005.
Number Five: He Was on a Cereal Box. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson used to criticize Cena for being “something for the kids.” Because of this, he started calling Cena “Fruity Pebbles.” However, the name must have stuck, because Cena eventually appeared on the front of the boxes of Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles! He was on the cereal boxes in 2013.
Number Four: His Acting Career Is Pretty Impressive. Cena is not just a one and done kind of actor. He has starred in films like 12 Rounds and The Marine. One of Cena’s latest acting endeavors is in 2015’s Daddy’s Home, in which he played the part of “Cool Dad.”
Number Three: He Holds a Charitable Record. In 2015, Cena became the first celebrity ever to make 400 “Make-a-Wish” dreams come true. This statistic becomes especially impressive when you consider that Cena fulfilled his 300th wish less than a year ago, meaning he completed another 100 in less than a year.
Number Two: He Holds an Impressive WrestleMania Record. Cena has more heavyweight titles won at a WrestleMania than anyone else in the world: four. He is clearly one of the most talented wrestlers of all time.
Number One: He Pooped His Pants During a Match. Cena was suffering from food poisoning but decided he could continue to compete. However, he realized his grave mistake when he found himself leaving the ring to vomit during a match, and while he was vomiting, he had a bowel movement as well. Ouch.
