On Saturday, moments before the IPL 2023 match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians, John Cena, the popular WWE star, responded to MS Dhoni’s “You Can’t See Me” gesture with a blockbuster reaction. This article details the background of the fascination between Indian cricketers and WWE, and the recent exchange between Cena and Dhoni.
The Fascination Between Indian Cricketers and WWE
Indian cricketers and WWE have a mutual admiration society. From Virat Kohli pulling off Roman Reigns’ celebration during T20 World Cup to Venkatesh Iyer being a complete fanboy, the Indian cricket team has shown their love and appreciation for WWE. In return, WWE has often taken to social media to express their love and admiration for Indian cricketers, with Drew McIntyre tweeting for Suryakumar Yadav on several occasions and Triple H sharing a special post for Sachin Tendulkar on his birthday.
Dhoni’s Iconic WWE Act
During Chennai Super Kings’ match against Lucknow Super Giants at the Ekana Stadium earlier in the week, CSK captain MS Dhoni made an iconic WWE act. Maheesh Theekshana had made a huge LBW appeal against Manan Vohra. Umpire Anil Choudhary denied it, and Theekshana then looked towards his captain for a DRS review. Dhoni used WWE legend John Cena’s epic “You Can’t See Me” gesture to convey the message that he was not convinced and would not opt for a review.
Cena’s Response to Dhoni’s Act
On Saturday, before the match between CSK and Mumbai Indians, Cena responded to Dhoni’s act with a blockbuster reaction. He shared a picture of Dhoni in the “You Can’t See Me” act on Instagram, and his post went viral.
