John Cena continues to hold a special place in the hearts of professional wrestling fans, bringing joy whenever he graces the WWE stage. Following his impactful appearance at WrestleMania 40 Sunday, Cena appeared on RAW, but he has now revealed his struggles with Lordosis.

John Cena discussed his experience with lordosis during his appearance on the podcast Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard. Lordosis is a condition that causes an excessively curved spine in the neck or lower back. Cena mentioned that he has been dealing with the condition since his 20s, although it has improved over time.

Cena discussed how his condition affected his in-ring performance, noting that it influenced his ability to gauge his capabilities and make decisions about moves he could execute. For example, he spoke about avoiding certain maneuvers such as backflips because of the discomfort associated with his spine’s curvature.

”I still don’t have a good grasp on knowing my own capabilities (in the ring). Like, always knowing my line and just towing it and trying to push it. Not saying, oh, I’m going to the top rope to do a backflip. I have lordosis so it’s uncomfortable to go ass over teakettle… It’s opposite of scoliosis. Over the years, it’s gotten better, but 20s, I was like, big booty out all the time. It’s like sticking your butt out.”


Recent hints from Cena about potential future appearances on WWE television have sparked widespread discussion among fans. Cena also revealed the timeframe for his return to WWE, so fans will have to wait a while until then.
