WWE Celebrating ‘Cena Month’ In Honor Of His 20-Year Anniversary WWE

2002 was the beginning of a new era for WWE, as many of the biggest names in the company’s history debuted that year.

WWE has already celebrated the 20-year anniversary of both Randy Orton and Batista, and now it is the turn of 16-time world champion John Cena.

WWE released the following statement, declaring the month of June ‘Cena Month’ in honor of his anniversary on June 27:

WWE was forever changed on June 27, 2002, when a then-unknown powerhouse by the name of John Cena stormed onto SmackDown for the very first time.

Answering an open challenge issued by Kurt Angle, Cena boldly declared himself an agent of “ruthless aggression” before paint-brushing The Olympic Gold Medalist across the face. The rest, as they say, is history.

Sixteen World Title reigns, countless Attitude Adjustments and numerous Hollywood blockbusters later, Cena’s debut remains a watershed moment in sports-entertainment lore, the introduction of arguably the biggest Superstar of the modern era, if not WWE history.

In honor of the upcoming 20-year anniversary of that seminal night, WWE is paying tribute to The Cenation Leader throughout June with the launch of #CenaMonth.

Starting today, keep your eyes locked on WWE social platforms to celebrate all things John Cena. The festivities include a brand-new episode of WWE Playback featuring The Cenation Leader breaking down his own debut, Cena-themed editions of WWE Top 10 and WWE Playlist, a bevy of rare and unseen photos, tons of classic throwback videos, and much more!

Join the celebration by sharing your favorite Cena moments and memories all month long using the hashtag #CenaMonth.

Cena has spoken about a potential return to the company, noting that he has been ‘gone too long’.
