WWE superstar John Cena, renowned for his prowess in the ring and his mark in the film industry, recently exposed a deeper aspect of his personal life during an appearance on “Hart to Heart.” The show’s host, Kevin Hart, delved into Cena’s relationship with his father, John Cena Sr., leading to the disclosure of an unexpected disconnect.

“Not as much as I should be,” confessed Cena when asked about his closeness to his father, a self-professed lifelong wrestling fan. This admission puts a new perspective on the relationship between Cena and his father, often viewed through a lens of a shared passion for wrestling.

Confusion and Clarity: The Path to WWE

Cena’s path to professional wrestling and WWE stardom wasn’t linear, filled with uncertainty, particularly concerning his father’s approval. Recalling his college graduation and early accolades, Cena admits he was unsure of his father’s pride or approval. “A lot of that rests on me,” he revealed, suggesting his role in the strained relationship. 

The turning point came when Cena signed his first WWE contract, a meagre $12,000 per year agreement. Despite quitting his job the day he was signed and the uncertainty of his career path, Cena’s mother was supportive yet cautious. His father’s reaction, however, was a surprising contrast.

Unexpected Enthusiasm: John Cena Sr.’s Hidden Passion

“Dad, I just got a job with the WWE,” Cena recalled, mimicking the excitement his father exhibited. Unlike previous occasions where Cena Sr. seemed indifferent, the news of his son’s WWE career sparked unprecedented joy. “Oh, my son! This is unreal! You’re gonna do great! I can’t believe it!” Cena said, capturing his father’s excitement. This was a revelation for Cena, uncovering a side of his father rarely seen.

Success and Redemption: Cena’s Ongoing Journey

Now a successful WWE superstar, Cena, who recently topped the box office with his latest film “Fast X,” is navigating the intricate dynamics of his relationship with his father. His recent appearance at WWE’s Money in the Bank showcased his unwavering wrestling prowess, hyping the idea of a future Wrestlemania in London, England. 

As complicated as family relationships can be, Cena’s success in wrestling bridged the emotional gap with his father, a bond that has endured despite the challenges. His journey underscores the complexities of parent-child relationships in the limelight and serves as a testament to the power of shared passion.
