Is John Cena Dead?
The death hoax about John Cena which began swirling in 2013 seems to keep popping up year after year, most recently in 2017. The hoax has been linked to sites like TMZNewsOnline.net (PS: It has no link whatsoever to TMZ.com). The said site reported the old hoax in 2016 stating that Cena died in a car accident. An article on their site read;
“John Cena died in a single-vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics responding to the vehicle accident and was identified by photo ID found on his body. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to have been a factor in this accident.”
“Highway Safety Investigators have told reporters that John Cena lost control while driving a friend’s vehicle on Interstate 80 and rolled the vehicle several times killing him instantly.”
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY FALSE! Like most celebrity death hoaxes, the reason for this one is absolutely unknown. As recent as 2017, fans of the WWE superstar have been sending him messages on Twitter about the rumor, but Cena who like the rest of us is bored of the hoax didn’t even seem to bother.
