Drinker changes his name to WWE's John Cena by deed poll – and isn't even a wrestling fan

A DRINKER had more than just a hangover to grapple with when he woke to find he had changed his name to that of wrestler John Cena.

Lewis Oldfield, 23, had been play-fighting while boozed-up with pals when they dared him to do it.

He paid £40 for six deed poll documents as proof for his bank and other organisations.

And he even spent £75 on a new passport in the name of the US WrestleMania superstar.

The restaurant shift leader, from Bradford, said: “We’d had a few drinks and were play-wrestling. We were just messing around, pretending to do announcements like in WWE and one of my friends was introducing John Cena.

“One thing led to another and they dared me to change my name to John Cena. 

“I was going to get a tattoo saying it but did this instead. I always follow through with dares so I just did it. I’m not even a wrestling fan!”

He added: “My mum couldn’t stop laughing at me when she found out.

“My dad’s more serious so I’ve not told him yet.”

His UK Deed Poll Office receipt advises: “Contact us immediately if you find an error.”

But he said: “I actually don’t mind the name so I’m going to keep it.”

WWE icon Cena, 44, is also a Hollywood star, appearing in Transformers spin-off Bumblebee and is in Fast & Furious 9, due out this month.
