John Cena is undoubtedly one of the biggest professional wrestlers in the history of the business. After all, hardly anyone is as recognizable as The Leader Of Cenation when it comes to both pro wrestling as well as Hollywood. Cena is also one of the kindest human beings in the world, as he has already made many Make-A-Wish dreams come true. In fact, it appears that Vince McMahon had to convince Cena to make his Make-A-Wish visits public.
Last year, Guinness World Records reported that Cena set a new world record for the most wishes granted through the non-profit organization, granting 650 wishes – the most in Make-A-Wish’s 42-year existence.
Obviously, John Cena has granted even more wishes since then and continues to make their dreams come true. That being said, John Cena never did this for the limelight or praise.
While speaking with Rick Rubin on the Tetragrammaton podcast, Paul Heyman revealed that Vince McMahon had to convince John Cena to make his Make-A-Wish visits public.
“I don’t have the words to convey the admiration I have for John Cena as a human being. There had to come a point in time where Vince had to sit down with John and say, ‘You need to let me go public with these Make-A Wish visits. You have to. You know you’re hurting Make-A-Wish by not allowing me to do that because if people understood how much of your time you give to Make-a-Wish and to these kids, they’ll be inclined to contribute. They’ll be inclined to get involved. You will help them if you allow this’, because Cena never wanted to exploit it. He never wanted publicity for it. He never wanted recognition for it. He wanted to just do it. That’s a hero.”
John Cena is currently busy with his life in Hollywood, as he will be starring in Greta Gerwig’s highly anticipated film ‘Barbie,’ where he will be portraying the role of mermaid. It remains to be seen when John Cena will return to WWE television once again.
