John Felix Anthony Cena (born April 23, 1977) is a professional wrestler, rapper, and actor. After becoming the subject of an Internet meme in 2015, Cena became a minor meme on the SiIvaGunner channel.
He debuted on the WWE main roster in 2002 and has since become one of the company's most popular wrestlers. Since March 17, 2005, John Cena's entrance theme has been "The Time Is Now", a song recorded by Cena and his first cousin, Tha Trademarc.
In 2012, the Z Morning Zoo podcast on the FM radio station WNVZ did a "phone scam" on an unsuspecting wife where they pretended to be advertising for a WWE pay-per-view event featuring John Cena. This prank phone call would later be uploaded to YouTube in March 2014 where it currently has over 35 million views.
In the summer of 2015, the "Unexpected John Cena" meme became a thing.

"The Time is Now" was used on a few instances in the GiIvaSunner channel and the SiIvaGunner channel, like Inside the Castle Walls - Super Mario 64 , P-R-O-G-R-A-M (Vagrant Counting Song of Retrospection) - Kirby Planet Robobot and "Master Plan - Payday 2".
Despite being very popular, the John Cena meme is very rarely used on the SiIvaGunner channel. One possible explanation for this is that the meme was already half a year old by the time the GiIvaSunner channel started, so it was already overused. Another explanation is that the meme could be "too mainstream", as his appearance as the tenant of the "Stale Meme Shop" in A "Hard Day's Work" - Mr Rental: The Video Game seems to indicate.
