John Cena is a three time World Champion, with two of his world championship wins coming from Smackdown, and one from RAW.

Batista, CM Punk and the Undertaker would all fail to grab the championship before Cena.Cena’s title reign would be short lived, losing it to The Undertaker at Payback, Cena would win the championship back from The Undertaker the next month at Bragging Rights. However, John Cena would once again only have a short championship reign, losing it again to Undertaker at the Money in the Bank pay per view. He failed to win the championship back and fell out of title contention.
