10 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About John Cena

Even though he’s one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, WWE fans still get some things wrong about John Cena.

While fans have always been able to see that it was never clearer than during his early days in WWE. He would only wear trunks at this point in a more traditional sense, and that was a look that did work for him.

Pushing The Focus To Red

It Was Bold And In Your Face

  • Cena also had a bright yellow design
  • He wore this as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion

John Cena has always gone for big, bold, and bright color schemes and the majority of them didn’t really work when it came to creating nice merchandise that would look good. However, his red designs were an exception to the rule as these did look vibrant.

The fact he’d often pair these with beige-colored shorts meant he switched things up away from the jean design which was never a bad thing either.


A Hat Tip To The AWA

This Was A Look Back To The Past

Another of John Cena’s best looks was this shirt that had a nod to the AWA with its design. For old-school wrestling fans that is something that people will have appreciated and understood, and for those not clued it was simply just a great look for him.

The style was sleek and suited him well. Matching up the baseball cap and his sweatbands with his shirt worked well, with the black, blue, red, and white all creating a strong look for him.

Hustle, Loyalty, & Respect

Coming out with the chain link shirt design that had his catchphrase on was a great decision.

The black and orange color scheme was fresh and worked well, particularly with the matching hat and wristbands. Of course, he rocked the classic jorts to go along with it, but the overall look was a strong one.

Joining The nWo

This Was A One-Off Moment That Fans Didn’t See Coming

  • He wore this look in the Firefly Funhouse Match
  • Cena was never officially a nWo member
