Usually, fans post an image of Cena and then create a joke around invisibility. However, the anime show used the pose Cena uses when he’s making the statement “You Can’t See Me”. The implication is that his quickness inside the ring makes it impossible for his opponents to predict his next move.

What he does is take his palm, fingers spread out, and holds it over his face while looking at his opponent. This has been his signature move for a long time. Other Superstars have often taken the opportunity to use it for their effect.

The anime show, My Hero Academia, released a poster where the central character, Izuku Midoriya [Deku], is standing with the same “You Can’t See Me” pose. Cena was quick to acknowledge this tribute on his social media.

What is John Cena currently doing about his return?

John Cena is busy with shooting, and won’t be able to make it to this year’s WrestleMania. He clarified that even if he could make it to the event, he would need to quarantine once he gets back to his shooting. His shooting schedule won’t permit him a two-week quarantine, and hence, he needs to stay in Vancouver.
