WWE wrestler and actor John Cena is turning 45 this year. And he will also give fans some of the biggest hits of the year. However, John Cena is a well-known wrestler and an actor like The Rock. And in the last five years or so, Cena has seen his own Hollywood profile increase tremendously, much in the same way it took The Rock a few years of up and down roles before he suddenly burst into the A-list.
While wrestlers becoming actors used to be seen as jokes, thanks to the failed Hollywood runs of people like Hulk Hogan, the success stories of The Rock, Cena, and Dave Bautista seem to be turning the tide away from that line of thinking. Here are the five movies and TV shows fans can look forward to seeing the massively muscular Cena pop up on his special day.
