It’s bigger than wrestling. Whether you like him or not, it is hard to argue with the star power of John Cena. While he might not have been the most popular star that WWE has ever seen, Cena was the face of the company for a very long time and deserves a lot of credit for the company’s success. Cena may be mostly gone from WWE now, but he still has a big impact on a lot of people, including something rather important.
If there is one thing that Cena was most known for out of the ring, it was working with children. In addition to his incredible amount of work with Make-A-Wish, Cena has been on quite a few children’s television shows over the years. He was basically a superhero in WWE and that is going to get kids’ attention in a hurry. It turns out that being able to get a kid’s attention led to a very important result.
According to WNEP (ABC affiliate in Scranton, Pennsylvania), an eight year old boy saved his sister from choking to death by patting her on the back to clear her throat, as he had learned by watching Cena on the Substitute, a Nickelodeon series. The series featured Cena in a costume explaining things like CPR and how to clear someone’s throat if they are choking.
Cena has done some impressive things before. Check out some of his work with children, plus his appearance on the show:
Opinion: And this is why you have shows like the Substitute. I know it might be corny, but it also might teach someone something like this, which seems to have saved a girl’s life. That is not something you get to see every day and it is quite the relief for everyone involved. Cena is rather good with kids and it is clear that something like this has an impact in a rather positive way.
