John Cena has left fans impressed after he was granted 600 wish requests from the non-profit organization called Make A Wish. Cena’s fans have taken over the internet saying "The champ is here."

From being a world champion in WWE record-breaking 16-times win to being a fabulous film star, John Cena has made his fans feel proud of him time and again. Apart from wrestling and acting, Cena has been indulging in charity work. His recent charity work sees the Fast & Furious 9 star join hands with the "Make-A-Wish" foundation, a non-profit organization to fulfill dreams of 600 kids. The Make-A-Wish Foundation helps children fighting against critical health issues to fulfill their life-changing dreams.

The actor not only is a record-breaker with most wishes granted from an individual but also is the most requested star for the foundation. Others have hardly passed 300 wishes. Though, Cena discovered this by accident back in 2002, when he was still a rookie in WWE.

While talking about Make-A-Wish in a conversation with People, John Cena revealed, “My first Make-A-Wish, I was kind of shuffled — it wasn’t for me, I think the person wanted to meet another superstar but the WWE does a great job of like, ‘Hey, there’s a Make-A-Wish kid in this room. Can you come to say hello?’ So, a bunch of people is shuttled in to say hello to a young fan of WWE.”

“So, we’re shuttled in and said my hellos and took my pictures and then left. And they’re like, ‘Thank you, Make-A-Wish thanks you.’ I was like, ‘What is Make-A-Wish?’” Cena added. This is not the first time that the Bumblebee actor has been a part of a charitable event. Earlier, he also donated $500,000 to the Fire Department Foundation and the California Fire Foundation in Los Angeles—both chosen by Paramount Pictures, the studio behind Cena’s latest film ‘Playing with Fire’ that released today on 8th November 2019.
