World Wrestling Entertainment's John Cena recently made waves by sharing an image from the upcoming My Hero Academia film, proving that the entertainer definitely is a fan of the franchise created by Kohei Horikoshi. Taking to Instagram, Cena shared the "you can't see me" move that seemingly was being thrown up by UA Academy's biggest student, Izuku "Deku" Midoriya". Needless to say, the anime community has been buzzing regarding the wrestler turned Hollywood actor noticing that the young hero of UA Academy might be a fan of the WWE himself.

As you can see below, Cena hit up Instagram recently with the post. The wrestler-turned-actor posted a cropped version of the Three Musketeers visual that My Hero Academia put out last year. In this shot, fans can see Izuku in the center between Shoto and Katsuki, but you should really be eyeing his pose here.

Doesn't it look a bit familiar? Well, if you like pro wrestling, it will be. Izuku's arms are crossed in a very similar fashion to Cena's signature pose. The wrestler made the stance famous years ago, and netizens noted how close Izuku's pose matches the look. And now, Cena has caught on to the conversation.

Of course, fans are geeking out about the nod, and they have plenty of good things to say about My Hero Academia. Netizens are asking for Cena to give the superhero anime a shot, and the actor might give it a go. But first, Cena has his own superhero shtick to see through. The actor is set to star in James Gunn's The Suicide Squad as Peacemaker, and the character is getting his own HBO Max series to boot.

What do you make of this special response? Do we need a full-blown WWE x MHA crossover now? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB.
