What’s the best way to celebrate that 365th day of the nth year since you came kicking into this world? For many, it’s shots, shots, shots. For John Cena, it’s lifting a barbell-bending stack of Cadillacs.
To celebrate his 40th birthday, the professional wrestler and actor-turned-reality TV show host posted the video of himself crushing it at the gym on April 23.
Well-known as Cena is for being a wrecking ball in the ring or at the gym, it’s his quirky humor — a mix of fart jokes and deadpanning — that endears him to his fans. A meme unto himself, there’s his occasional show-stealing cameos — pretty much the best parts of either “Trainwreck” or “Sisters” — and that time he bared his “tube on YouTube,” with his fiancée, wrestler, actress, and model Nikki Bella.
Cena’s making a return to the silver screen as an Army sniper in the upcoming wartime thriller, “The Wall,” which looks intense. In fact, it may just be good enough to make us forget about “The Marine.” That would be a pretty good birthday present.

The thousands of sailors, Coasties and Marines who descend on New York City every year for Fleet Week are an awesome sight to behold on their own, but this year's confab of U.S. service members includes a uniquely powerful homecoming as well.
