    "How is that belt floating in the air like that?"

    Though he's not seen in the ring as often as he used to be, that hasn't stopped fans from laughing at old wrestling memes.

    Yesterday, ESPN tweeted about Cena's birthday. He turned 40 years old.

    The tweet blew up, going insanely viral with more than 5,000 retweets and nearly 14,000 likes at the time of writing.

    Why was the tweet so popular? Well, let's look at the replies to the photo, which features a championship belt being hoisted into the air. Is that belt holding itself up? Seems suspicious.

    Like, how is it doing that by itself? With no help at all?!

    The people demanded answers.

    Now, if you've followed his career over the years, you'd know Cena's catchphrase is literally "You can't see me."

    He's also leaned into the catchphrase a lot since his wrestling days. In 2005, he released a rap album titled You Can't See Me.
