John Cena Sets Guinness World Record

John Cena has added another trophy to his collection.

The wrestler-turned-actor has officially broken the Guinness World Record for the most Make-A-Wish Foundation wishes granted with 650, Guinness announced.

The Peacemaker actor has been the most requested Make-A-Wish celebrity. No other star has granted as many wishes in the foundation’s long history.

When he was honored for granting 500 wishes in 2015, Cena opened up about the foundation and how much he enjoys doing what he does.

Cena stated that she had “just dropped everything” at the time. “If I can provide a wonderful experience, I’ll first in line to do mine.”

Cena has been granting wishes since 2002, a few years after he began his career as a professional wrestler. As his popularity as a 16-time world champion soared, so did children’s requests for him to grant their wishes.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation‘s mission statement reads, “Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses,” adding, “Wishes are more than just a nice thing. They are more than just gifts or one-off events. The act of making their wishes come true can inspire them to follow their medical treatments

Cena explained why he continues to grant children’s wishes. “I want them experience that will last a lifetime.” I don’t ever want the children or their families to be treated in a way where they feel as if they’re up against anything at all.”
