John Cena and Nikki Bella are headed to the altar.
After defeating The Miz & Maryse in a Mixed Tag Team Match at WrestleMania 33, The Cenation Leader got down on one knee and proposed to The Fearless Superstar, capping off weeks of speculation as to whether WWE’s “It” couple would take their relationship to the next level.
WWE.com sends congratulations to the happy couple!
John Cena vs. Shawn Michaels — WWE Championship Match (WrestleMania 23)
Date: April 1, 2007
Why it’s great: In a battle of The Showstopper and Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, Respect, The Cenation Leader prevailed, staking his claim as the modern era’s answer to “Mr. WrestleMania.”
Two submissions for ya: Cena achieved victory over HBK via submission in this match. Coincidentally, he defeated Michaels’ best friend, Triple H, in the same manner at the previous year’s WrestleMania.
There have been a number of outstanding catchphrases in WWE, but few have been as infectious as Enzo Amore and Big Cass’ “SAWFT” line. It’s chanted along with by every WWE crowd they perform in front of, it’s been on countless pieces of merchandise, and it along with their insurmountable charisma has made them stars. And, they owe it all to John Cena, and Damien Sandow’s butt.
On a recent episode of Chris Jericho’s “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, Big Cass talked about the genius of their iconic phrase.
“We weren’t on NXT at all, we weren’t being used on the television show” Big Cass said, “we were nothing. We were just put to together as guys who do promos together, we didn’t even work live events together, and then Enzo had that match against Mason Ryan on NXT. He went out there, you should get eyes on that footage. Enzo almost went flying out of the ring. It was excellent. But he cut a promo on the way to the ring and Cena was backstage because back then NXT needed some WWE guys to draw the house.” Continue reading How John Cena Is Responsible For Enzo And Big Cass’ SAWFT Catchphrase
I recently posted about John Cena becoming a brand ambassador for Crocs. The campaign is set to officially launch on Monday, April 3. They released a couple of photos and John spoke about the product:
They’re (Crocs) launching a fantastic campaign called ‘Come As You Are,’ and it’s centered around a person’s ability to deal with adversity and still remain true to oneself. I really don’t pat myself on the back too often, but man, I’ve made a living doing that. So I was really happy to be chosen to be a part of it. I think that the messaging of what they’re trying to say and what I do on a daily basis is exactly identical.
A lot of people helped make my sons wish come true. I can’t thank you guys enough! Unfortunately John Cena was not part of the Meet and Greet package, but I didn’t let that stop us. Ironically with the help of John Cenas opponent in last nights match, we got to go backstage and meet him! Oh, did I mention John Cena also threw Payton his Shirt and wristband during the match!
Payton’s dad explained on Reddit how the meeting between Payton and Cena took place.
“Actually AJ Styles arranged this. He saw us standing around, and asked if we wanted a picture. Of course we said, “Yes!” Then he asked if we got to see everyone. I told him everyone but my sons favorite, John Cena. He then told us to follow him, and took us backstage to the locker room. That’s when he went and got Cena for us!!”
John Cena will have the honor of inducting Kurt Angle – his very first opponent in WWE – into the WWE Hall of Fame during the 2017 Induction Ceremony on Friday, March 31, airing live on WWE Network.
Cena was a long way from becoming a 16-time World Champion on June 27, 2002 when he accepted the Olympic Gold Medalist’s open challenge, believing he had the “ruthless aggression” to defeat Angle before striking him. Though he did not earn the victory, Cena established himself as a force to be reckoned with in WWE.
Angle and Cena would remain rivals throughout the latter’s rise to Superstardom, even battling over the WWE Championship in 2005. Now, Cena will present Angle to the WWE Universe for the first time in more than a decade – and officially as a WWE Hall of Famer.
What will Cena have to say when he inducts one of his greatest rivals into sports-entertainment history? Find out during the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, Friday, March 31 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, live on the award-winning WWE Network!

This Tuesday at 8/7 C on SmackDown LIVE, John Cena is scheduled to be a guest on “Miz TV.” Although there is already a long-standing history between the two Superstars, this appearance in particular has the potential to turn extremely volatile. In addition to the animosity that has already built up from when the two battled as part of the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match several weeks ago, this past week on the blue brand, Cena eliminated The Miz from the 10-Man WWE Title No. 1 Contender’s Battle Royal. The A-Lister then snuck back in the ring and returned the favor by eliminating The Leader of the Cenation.
Even their significant others have gotten into the controversy as, on the same night, Miz’s wife Maryse attacked Nikki Bella with pipe during the Fearless Superstar’s Falls Count Anywhere Match against Natalya.
As Cena prepares to step into “The Most Must-See Talk Show in WWE History,” it would be easy for him to take the situation lightly. After all, SmackDown LIVE’s General Manager Daniel Bryan has made several comments that suggest Miz is afraid to get hit. Moreover, Miz likes to talk, a quality that can sometimes be perceived at less than to those perceived as “men of action.” As a man who has built his career on never backing away from any confrontation, Cena would certainly be counted in the latter category.
Nevertheless, the 16-time World Champion should take any threat from The Miz seriously, and here’s why …
Ever dreamed of challenging John Cena? Well, a few lucky gamers will get to do just that when the 16-time World Champion teams with Nintendo to help launch the highly-anticipated Nintendo Switch console. In an effort to showcase the console’s capabilities, Nintendo is hosting special experiences in living room settings at some unusual locations with Cena as special guest.
