Founded in 1967, ECCW is home to the longest-running independent wrestling tournament in the country, the Super 8 Tournament. In December of 2019, the promotion was sold to Zanolle and is yet to air ever since.
As it was an independent promotion, the general wrestling fans were not aware of it, due to which information regarding Johnny Fabulous’s participation remains in the shadow.
John Cena’s Father Was Also Part Of WWE
WWE is well known for involving family members in its wrestling storylines and feuds. Since your son is one of the biggest WWE superstars during the “Ruthless Aggression” era, it was obvious to see John Cena Sr. involved in a storyline.
The Doctor of Thuganomics is a 16-times WWE world heavyweight championship, and he only became a big money superstar after his classic feuds with Randy Orton and Edge.
Surprisingly, John Cena Sr. was involved in his son’s feud with the Rated R Superstar and the Viper. The former announcer’s participation was a great hit in the TV viewing as it turned out to be a good entertainment material. He appeared in numerous episodes of WWE Raw and Wrestlemania XXX.
Match With Randy Orton
On the episode of RAW, September 17, 2007, John Cena’s father, John Cena Sr., got himself into a bad situation. The father of five had a match with his son’s biggest rival, Randy Orton.
The Apex Predator often had encounters with Johnny Fabulous during his feud with Cena. But things went a bit far when the audience witnessed a brutal beat down by Randy while John Cena was handcuffed in the side of the ring.
Though it was all fake and for entertainment purposes, it was heartbreaking to see someone beat an older man in front of his son. With a little help from former WWE superstar Cody Rhodes, Cena was able to break free and chase down the Viper.
On an episode of RAW, back in 2007, Randy also hit John Cena Sr. with his signature punt kick in the head, adding more fuel to his rivalry with his son.
Nevertheless, John Cena’s dad, John Cena Sr., is enjoying a happy retired life along with his wife as they have five sons who are looking after them. We wish the best to Johnny Fabulous for his overall health and well-being.
