The history of John Cena's T-shirts

Whoever coined the phrase “clothes make the man” probably didn’t associate a T-shirt and jean shorts with success. But that didn’t stop John Cena from building an empire while wearing an outfit that wouldn’t fly on most casual Fridays. Who needs a power tie when you’ve got a purple shirt?

The Cenation leader’s ever-changing tees tell the story of his decade with WWE as he matured from a cocky hip hip-hop head in throwback jerseys to an established, respected locker room leader who proudly donned pink to support breast cancer awareness. Here, WWE Classics chronicles the evolution of John Cena from brash b-boy to confident Cenation leader — one shirt at a time. (PHOTOS)
