February 22, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

John Cena, the WWE superstar, did not die on Saturday, but a number of people Twitter are saying otherwise.

On Saturday, “RIP John Cena” started to trend.

However, there’s no credible media reports saying the professional wrestler died.

Cena wrote on his Twitter twice on Saturday.

“I never thought it was possible, until it was possible. I truly enjoy that contradiction of terms. #nevergiveup,” he wrote.

Cena later tweeted, “And that my man is RESPECT.”

But despite his updates on Twitter, the “RIP John Cena” trend was going strong. It’s unclear why people were tweeting it.

“No joke my skin literally went cold when i saw the trend rip john cena no no no no no no no no he was my favourite wrestler no no no no,” one person wrote.

Added another, “I miss him already. RIP in peace John Cena 🙁 🙁 :(.”

Cena recently was in a match with Antonio Cesaro in a one-on-one match on Monday.

He also gave an interview to Larry King, talking about Hulk Hogan possibly returning to the WWE.

“I’ll believe it when I see it, I would love to see him, and I would love for him to be a part of WrestleMania XXX. He was part of WrestleMania 1, he kinda started the whole phenomenon,” he said.
