John Cena is famous for his catchphrase in the ring during fights in WWE. He habitually taunts his opponents by saying “You can’t see me” with a unique hand gesture. And this had spurred a meme fest in the past, with many posting pictures of Cena and reckoning there was nobody in it.

Well, after going quiet for a few years, the meme is back! And as always, Mercedes and their fans have caught up to the trend. Mercedes tweeted the screenshot of Twitter notifying that Cena had started following the Brackley outfit.

They captioned the tweet, saying, “WE’VE GOT A NEW FOLLOWER. IT’S…

The admins must’ve expected the fans to scream the name ‘John Cena’. But, what they ended up getting instead was the old-but-gold ‘where’s John Cena?’ comments.

Twitter reactions to the Mercedes-John Cena union

We’ve hand-picked a few comments out of the Mercedes’ Twitter post, and they are quite hilarious. Take a look at them.

Mercedes set for a tough race at Sochi?

Valtteri Bottas is certainly one of the most successful drivers at Sochi along with Lewis Hamilton. Hence, on the outlook, it might look like the Russian GP could be a stroll in the park for the Brackley outfit, especially amidst the 3-place grid penalty for the team’s only threat, Max Verstappen.

But, here’s the thing. The weekend is unlikely to be as easy as it sounds. This is because of the predicted conditions over the weekend. Rains are likely to take control of the Russian GP and wet conditions have hardly treated Bottas well in the past.

So, if the race does take place under wet conditions, one can confidently rule of a Bottas’ dominance. Contrastingly, Verstappen could be the driver to watch out for in the rain.

Yes, Mercedes do have Hamilton, but considering the Dutchman’s recent form and Red Bull’s powerful engine, Verstappen could well race to his 8th Grand Prix of the season. So, after a rather poor triple-header, can Mercedes miraculously bounce back to defeat their rivals at Sochi?
