Alfonso Soriano Rocks John Cena’s “You Can’t See Me”

John Cena with Cubs Left Fielder Alfonso Soriano at WWE Judgment Day on May 17.

Professional Wrestler John Cena, of West Newbury, Massachusetts, has always been active outside the ring, notably with his generous work with the Make a Wish Foundation. He’s also been quite outspoken in support of Boston area sports; his song “Beantown” from his first hip hop album “You Can’t See Me” pays perfect homage to several decades of history. But every now and then, some other athlete picks up on his mannerisms. These days, that athlete is Chicago Cubs left fielder, Alfonso Soriano.

After making a clutch play, Soriano has taken to copying Cena’s “You Can’t See Me” hand motion, in which he waves his hand in front of his face as a taunt to his opponent. The imitation led to Cena being a guest at Wrigley Field on June 20, where the Cubs beat the Indians 6-5 in 13 innings. Cena threw out the first pitch and was even a guest announcer for an inning.

This followed an appearance by Soriano at World Wrestling Entertainment’s Judgment Day Pay Per View on May 17. A short clip of Cena’s day in Chicago can be found at WWE.com.
