John Cena is adding another trophy to his belt.
The actor and wrestler has officially broken the Guinness World Record for the number of wishes granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation with 650, Guinness announced.
The People of Peace actor is the most in-demand Make-A-Wish celebrity, no other star has even come close to achieving as many wishes as Cena has had in the organization’s decades-long history.
When honored for granting 500 wishes in 2015, Cena shared about his background and how much he enjoys doing what he does.
“I just dropped everything,” Cena said at the time. “If I can deliver a great experience, I will be first in line to do my part.”
Cena has been granting wishes since 2002, a few years after he began his professional wrestling career. As his popularity as a 16-time world champion skyrocketed, so did the children’s demands on him for their wishes.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation’s mission statement reads, “Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with terminal illnesses,” adding, “Wishes are more than just a wish. good thing. And they are not just gifts, or single events in time. Just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments.”
As for why he continues to grant the children’s wishes, Cena said, “I want them to have an experience that will stay with them forever. I never want the kids or their families to be treated in a way that makes them feel like they’re up against anything.”
