Moreover, John Cena is a living, breathing meme. Everything that he does, turns into a viral trend. Naturally, social media is now having a field day at Cena’s latest Instagram post. 

This may be an unpopular idea but, it would have been interesting to see PM Modi meeting the Hollywood star, given that John Cena is conspicuously a fan of Indian culture and celebrities. Ever wondered how John Cena came up with the “You Can’t See Me” five-knuckle act?

The origins of the legendary You Can’t See Me catchphrase

Before John Cena forayed into Hollywood, he carved out a fire-sure Hall of Famer career in wrestling. But his character wasn’t always as animated as it is today. After almost losing his job due to a lackluster run, John Cena won over the WWE Universe with his rapper gimmick and ‘You Can’t See Me’ catchphrase.

Fans may be privy to what waving of the hand means but what is the backstory of the legendary movement? During an appearance on The Tonight’s Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Peacemaker actor revealed that the whole thing started as a dare. Cena credited his younger brother Sean for coming up with the maneuver. 

While listening to John Cena’s track, Sean put his hand in front of his face and started nodding. While John Cena called it “ridiculous”, Sean thought it was cool. Furthermore, he dared Cena to do that on WWE TV.

Challenge was accepted and John Cena added his own spin to the move by waving his hand to be more visible to fans in the nosebleed seats. Consequently, the catchphrase became one of John Cena’s iconic moves and a meme culture staple.
