In 2006, John Cena appeared on The Howard Stern Show, where he discussed his gym routine and why he has no problem with Vince McMahon owning his name. However, he also shared the details of his father, who is also a pro wrestling fan.

John Cena Sr. is a wrestling fan, and he allowed all of his five kids to wrestle each other. Cena shed a light on his father when Stern asked him did he joined pro wrestling because his father was in the business.

Cena said, “No, but he was a huge wrestling fan. He really kind of forced us to watch wrestling as kids. I come from a house that has five boys and he was a true disciplinary dad. Every time we were bad, we got the strap, we got our a** beat for misbehaving.”

He added, “But the one we could really beat the h*ll out of each other with no consequences was a wrestling someone. So I grew NWA, the WWF then, the AWA, it was just something that we all had, we had like a ring set-up in our basement.”
