When John Cena debuted on SmackDown in June 2002, no one could have predicted he’d go on to become one of WWE’s biggest Superstars. As he worked to make a name for himself, he nearly won the 2005 Royal Rumble Match, narrowly missing out on a WWE Championship bout at WrestleMania 21. However, he later rebounded and won a SmackDown No. 1 Contender Tournament, earning the opportunity to face WWE Champion JBL.

As WrestleMania 21 went Hollywood at the STAPLES Center, Cena won his first WWE Championship from the double-tough Longhorn Loudmouth JBL with an Attitude Adjustment. It was an epic beginning to a storybook career, whose final chapter has yet to be written.
