John Cena Date of Birth

John Felix Anthony Cena was born on April 23, 1977, in West Newbury, Massachusetts to Carol Cena and John Cena.

Early Life and Education

John Felix Anthony Cena was born on April 23, 1977, in West Newbury, Massachusetts, the second of John Sr. and Carol Cena’s five boys.

At an early age, Cena showed a passion for sports and working out. By the time he was 15, he was a regular gym rat and after graduating high school, Cena headed off to Springfield College in Massachusetts to study exercise physiology and prove his worth on the football field. At Springfield, Cena turned himself into a Division III All-American offensive lineman and team captain.

In 2000, the new college graduate left Massachusetts despite his father’s wishes, seeking a new life in California as a bodybuilder. It wasn’t an easy transition for the 6-foot 1-inch aspiring star.

He had just $500 in his pocket to make it across the country and get settled. To make ends meet, he folded towels and cleaned toilets at a Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach. Since he couldn’t afford an apartment, he shacked up in his 1991 Lincoln Continental.
