Before getting into the topic of is John Cena is on steroids or natural? Let me tell you who is John Cena.

John Felix Anthony Cena also known as John Cena the guy who claimed that you can’t see him was born on April 23, 1977, John Cena is an American professional wrestler, TV host, rapper, and actor who worked in many Hollywood movies till 2018.

John Cena’s Stats

Height: 6ft 1

Weight: 114kg

Body Fat: 8-9% (approx)

Due to his size and strength, he was always assumed as a steroid guy, although he always denied it on national television and in other interviews on the internet.

As a professional wrestler working with the biggest name in the wrestling business (WWE), he undergoes many tests regarding his natty status and he passed all the tests. He also claimed to be natural from day 1.

Here is the interview where he claims to be natural

But with his appearance and extreme build, it’s really hard to accept that John Cena is natural. As we look at him we see some signs of steroid use in his body.

John Cena on Steroids (Signs)


Well, John Cena has small waste but sometimes we noticed mild bloating in the stomach area which we can’t ignore here.

This bloating could be the reason for water retention, it’s a very mild form of “steroid gut” that can be caused by using HGH/Insulin. This bloating is very much found in guys who used steroids.

Flushed Skin

John Cena is seen with a slightly pink color on his skin, this is a sign of elevated temperature within the body and this is one of the most common side effects of anabolic steroids.

Flushing skin can be noticed in many steroid users and John Cena has many pictures that show the same.

Blocky Appearance

In the above-mentioned video before-after picture of John Cena.

This picture was taken when he graduated from school and wants to become a pro bodybuilder.

When we compare these two pictures we can notice a drastic change in his appearance,

Noticeable changes are:

  • His waist/midsection is considerably thicker
  • He is more muscular
  • His skull has grown

John Cena

Steroids make a blockier look with a change in the waist which is herein john Cena’s case, Steroids are notorious for causing this extra thickness around your hips/midsection.

It is also noticed in this picture as he is more muscular in the after picture and without steroids, it is impossible to gain extra muscles as he was lifting for six years in the before picture also.

You will also notice John Cena’s head has doubled the size now, the skull is not a muscle but the fact is cranium gets much bigger because of human growth hormone when your body has a high level of HGH in it you inject it into your bone and tissue will grow resulting in enlarging the skull and even nose too.

Well, the above mentioned are the reasons which show John Cena is on steroids, whereas the coin has two sides that prove him to be natural.

Is John Cena Natural

John Cena is of a good size but he is not huge as compared to the other steroids user which we discussed earlier in other posts.

This proves that he is natural with superhuman genetics, resulting in his impressive physics with just hard work and a good healthy diet.

Less Popping Veins

Whenever we think of steroid users we see popping veins all over the upper body, but John Cena doesn’t have that. These effects can be hidden but it simply proves that John Cena is natural.

He Is Proportionate

John is the big muscular guy to hang around but as we noticed is proportionate not like steroids users, look closer at his arms which are not looked filled with juice nor look like a balloon which can be a side effect of steroids.

He Passes Regular Steroid Tests

As he is working as a professional wrestler with the biggest name in the wrestling business WWE, which has a very well-defined policy for steroid users, WWE also tests his wrestler for drugs well John Cena also undergoes many drug tests throughout his career and passed all of them, which proves him to be natural.

Final Verdict

After discussing the evidence we assume John Cena could be taking steroids. Some evidence like

  • Pink colored skin
  • A much bigger head
  • Much blockier midsection.
  • He blew up AFTER 6 years of lifting weights
  • Has some bloating

Potential Steroid Stack

As John Cena is likely to use HGH as resulting of enlarging his skull,

He might not be taking insulin with HGH which is why it doesn’t have much bloating like other steroid users.

He might have used testosterone booster with Winstrol or Clenbuterol and Dianabol with HGH resulting in his size and muscle growth.
