On “U Can’t See Me”

A markish confession: the biggest reason I’ll never turn on John Cena is his entrance music.  What can I say?  I’m a sucker for a vaguely ethnic-sounding intro with a hook featuring horns.  The trilling guy who says something in Spanish I can’t quite catch is pretty rousing as well.  So the trilling guy and the horns do their thing, and I’m all primed to be excited about whoever comes out on stage.

I will add, too, that the following lyrics offer insight into the depth of his character:

The same reason y’all could love me is the same reason y’all condemn me
A man’s measured by the way that he thinks
Not clothing lines, ice links, leather and minks
I spent 20 plus years seekin’ knowledge of self
So for now Marc Predka’s livin’ live for wealth

There is ambiguity here suggesting Cena has been preparing for this tween turn for a long time. I contend these lyrics demonstrate a depth of character Hulk Hogan never came near with his more dualistic anthem, which hinged so heavily on I feel strong about right and wrong.
