John Cena brings back the Dr. of Thuganomics at the shown of shows
John Cena wrestled in WWE under his rapper gimmick(The Doctor of Thuganomics) from 2002 to 2005. Cena was a heel back then and often rapped derogatory statements about his adversaries in the ring.
John Cena dropped his rapper gimmick in 2005 and transitioned into a ‘hustle, royalty, and respect’ character. Even though John Cena has dropped the Doctor of Thuganomics gimmick, the 16-Time Champion has made rare appearances like one on Wrestlemania 35. John Cena made an appearance on the showcase of the immortals with the rapper gimmick in a segment with Elias. Cena mocked and humiliated Elias with his rhymes before delivering an AA to him.
Now that John Cena is a part-timer and is focused more on his Hollywood projects, it will be interesting to see when fans will get a glimpse of The Doctor of Thuganomics again.
