John Cena is one of the biggest draws and crossover stars on the WWE roster. Ever since The Rock and “Stone Cold” left, Cena has been the face of the WWE and he has done a stellar job. This is why, even as a part-timer, the WWE values John very highly and compensates him accordingly.
John Cena gets paid around $10 million as a part-time member of the WWE roster. He is the second-highest earner out of all the wrestlers in the company, overtaking Brock Lesnar. However, that isn’t the extent of his sources of income. Multiple brands such as Gillette, Fruity Pebbles, and Capri Sun endorse Cena.
His WWE career and endorsements aside, John also earns vast amounts of money as an actor. Sportskeeda estimates the total value of Cena’s assets to be around $60 million. This makes Cena one of the highest-paid wrestlers ever.
Who is John Cena’s wife?
John Cena got married to his wife, Shay Shariatzadeh on October 20, 2020, in a closed ceremony comprising their family and friends. The leader of the Cenation met his wife at a cafe in Vancouver. At the time, he was shooting his movie, “Playing With Fire.”
Cena previously married Elizabeth Huberdeau in 2009. But the couple separated from and divorced each other in 2012. He kept most details about his previous marriage private, something that has carried over into his current relationship with Shay Shariatzadeh.
