An old death hoax news of John Cena has suddenly gone viral on internet. A website has recycled an old story and created confusions among his fans.
The report is published on Swellserver.com, and news spread that Cena died in a road accident on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell on March 5. His body was reportedly identified by paramedics by his photo ID. Early investigation discovered that he was not driving under the influence, the fake report added.
“Highway Safety Investigators have told reporters that John Cena lost control while driving a friend’s vehicle on Interstate 80 and rolled the vehicle several times killing him instantly,” the report noted. It was also said that his vehicle was approximately travelling at 95 miles per hour in a 55mph zone.
“Memorial services for John Cena have not yet been announced. The service is expected to be a closed casket funeral due to the severe head trauma,” the report concluded.
However, the viral news has been confirmed fake. On looking closer at the latest rumour, one would notice that it is the same death hoax story of the year 2012, which has been projected like a fresh story.
Many people have believed the fake news to be the fresh one and have posted comments on an IBT story from 2012. Below, we bring you a few comments.
We may also recall that John Cena was also victimised in a similar fake death news, when it was speculated that he died after suffering an injury on his head during a practise session.
WWE stars often become targets of such fake news and Chris Benoit, Owen Hart and Eddie Guerrero all faced such situations during their peak period.
John Cena is the prominent babyface of WWE and enjoys a huge fan following worldwide. He is set to clash with Rusev at WrestleMania 31, which will be held on 29 March at the brand-new Levi’s Stadium, California.
