John Cena infamously released “You Can’t See Me” all the way back in 2005. The Peacemaker star collaborated with his cousin Tha Trademark on the rap record. Cena’s well-known entrance theme, “The Time is Now” came from that very album. Does it stand the test of time?

CDTV Productions on YouTube has been influential in the world of rap reviews and news, grinding away for years just like the 16x World Champion. The channel recently released a track-by-track retrospective review of the record. It turns out that it wasn’t that bad, according to the review.

“It’s just pretty much exactly what you would expect from an album like this. Perhaps just slightly better.”

For those wondering, “The Time Is Now” got an enthusiastic thumbs up. The review noted that the song hits different when it’s not in the context of a pro wrestling entrance. “Right Now,” and “Bad Bad Man” among others were listed as winning tracks from Cena’s record.


You Can’t See Me” debuted at #15 on the Billboard Charts. Since then, it has been certified platinum with over one million units sold. John Cena has some legitimate hip hop bona fides.

Cena fans might want to take a moment to have a fresh look at the WWE superstar’s rap album. John Cena sneakily became one of the most versatile people in entertainment. Perhaps someday he will be mentioned in the same sentence as The Rock.

At the end of his review, CDTV Productions hinted that he has his eye on another pro wrestling rap album. We can only hope he is talking about “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s epic drop, complete with all that Hulk Hogan dissing.
