(WJW) – WWE wrestler and actor John Cena has officially set the Guinness World Record for granting a landmark number of Make-A-Wish wishes.
Back in June, the 45-year-old marked more than 650 wishes, more than any other celebrity in history, according to Make-A-Wish and WWE, and now he’s got a world record.
Cena granted his first wish in 2004 and just never stopped.
“I just drop everything,” Cena said when he was honored for granting 500 wishes. “If I can offer a fantastic experience, I’ll be first in line to do my part.”
Make-A-Wish, a nonprofit that works to bring joy to children diagnosed with critical illnesses, says he’s the most-requested celebrity by wish kids.
“…The reason I love Make-A-Wish so much is because those are those families’ wishes,” he said in a recent interview.
Many families stay in touch with Cena, telling him about the child’s last days being impacted by spending time with him.
“Those are always difficult to read,” Cena said. “But at the same time, the strength of the parents in sending me a message about how much the time that I spent with their child meant to them, it’s very special.”
John Cena has also been honored for his support to veterans’ organizations and first responders.
