While most people know John Cena to be one of the most prominent American wrestlers, a recent incident has landed his name in an unexpected place — a merit list of a college in Peshawar, Gulf News reported.

Screenshots of Cena’s name on the merit list of the Bachelor of Computer Science programme at the Islamia College Peshawar went viral online and prompted netizens to joke and make memes.

After the news went viral, some netizens even photoshopped Cena’s pictures with the graduates from the college. The list, however, not only had Cena’s name on the seventh place but also listed another American wrestling legend, The Undertaker, as his father.



“Incidents like these take place in online admission. Someone played a joke through the application. However, as soon as we came to know of it, we removed him from the system,” media reports quoted the college as saying.

It confirmed that someone had applied through a fake name, bank code, roll number and grades.
