Michael Antonio channeled his inner John Cena when he bodyslammed Franciso Sieralta during West Ham’s win over Watford.
The 31-year-old striker was trying to cross Sieralta, but the defender grabbed him to stop him from advancing.
But Antonio, one of the strongest players in the Premier League, slammed his opponent to the ground and landed on top of him.
Antonio was clearly proud of his skills and posted a clip of the incident Twitter,
He played John Cena’s theme tune on the video and captioned his post: “Sometimes you just have to handle business… #YouCantSeeMe.”
The hashtag is a reference to Cena’s famous phrase — and he’s not the only cultural figure Antonio has compared himself to this season.
In October Antonio celebrated his victory against Tottenham by paying tribute to The Matrix character Neo.
And Antonio has also frequently used his Instagram page to joke around this season.

West Ham photoshopped his face on Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit after qualifying for the Europa League knock-out stages and quoted his famous line: “We’re going on an adventure.”
Antonio also posted a photo of himself and Mark Noble cycling together in training, along with a snap of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill from the movie 21 Jump Street.
At the start of the season, Antonio celebrated West Ham’s becoming the Premier League’s top goalscorer in remarkable fashion.
The Jamaican picked up one of his cardboard cutouts and raised it up in the air, to the admiration of London Stadium loyalists.
