One of the most iconic pro-wrestlers of all time, John Cena carried the entire weight of the WWE on his back for over a decade. After gaining initial fame as a trash-talking rapper, he later adopted a Superman-like heroic personality. He has acquired millions of fans worldwide, many of whom are adolescents and children, and strives to inspire them through positivity and hard work. It was his father who introduced him to pro-wrestling. As an actor, he made his debut in an action film and has since switched to doing more comedies. He is an avid video gamer and prefers PlayStation 2 over Xbox. We have collected several of his quotes from articles, interviews, social media posts, speeches, and his writings. Here is a collection of top quotes by John Cena on variety of topics, such as people, loyalty, respect, competition, change, wrestling, love, friends and family.

I've been very true to know that I have a base of fans and I'm extremely loyal and extremely supportive to that base of fans. To the rest of them, I enjoy the fact that they fill the arenas and tell me to go to hell.
