News and Stats on John Cena’s Work with Make-A-Wish, Which Celebrities Are the Next Biggest Wish Granters
The veteran WWE Superstar celebrates a major milestone as he has granted more than 650 wishes with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Cena has granted more wishes than any other celebrity in the charity’s history. NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon and Hulk Hogan of the WWE Hall of Fame have each granted more than 200 wishes, but no one but Cena has made it past the 300 mark.
As seen in the tweet below, WWE promoted Cena’s over 650 wishes granted to him as part of the #CenaMonth celebration of his 20th anniversary with the company.
Cena reached 600 wishes in November 2019. He granted his first wish in 2004. Since its inception in 1981, the charity has granted more than 520,000 wishes worldwide.
Make-A-Wish has confirmed that Cena is their most requested celebrity from Wish Kids. The charity helps seriously ill children between the ages of 2.5 and 18 to fulfill their wishes.
Cena has often spoken in media interviews about how much the Make-A-Wish meetings mean to him. After learning about the charity, he immediately vowed to always be there for the foundation whenever they had a fan who wanted to meet him. He has kept this promise for almost 20 years.
WWE has granted more than 6,000 wishes to meet Superstars or attend live events since 2015, and many more have been granted in the 7 years since. WWE began the tradition in the 1980s when Hogan was most in demand. WWE has granted wishes to well over 50 Superstars since 2001.
We caught sight of how Cena went viral earlier this month at this link for a special visit he paid to a Ukrainian teenager with Down syndrome.
Cena has been away from WWE TV since last summer while he focused on his Hollywood career. He is expected to return next Monday on RAW in Laredo, TX.
