John Cena responds to Caitlin Clark's viral 'you can't see me' taunt after Elite Eight win
Caitlin Clark has John Cena's stamp of approval.
After knocking down her sixth three-pointer in Iowa's 97-83 win over Louisville in Elite Eight play on Sunday, Clark hit Cena's signature "You can't see me" taunt, waving her hand in front of her face to signify that she's unstoppable on the court.
She was: Clark led Iowa to the Final Four with a historic 41-point, 10-rebound and 12-assist performance, the first 40-point triple-double in NCAA Tournament history.
Cena himself took notice.
"Even if they could see you…they couldn’t guard you!" the WWE wrestling star tweeted Tuesday. "Congrats on the historic performance @CaitlinClark22 and to @IowaWBB on advancing to the Final Four!"
