Wrestlemania #28: John Cena vs. The Rock

How do you follow HHH vs. Undertaker inside the Cell?  With this.We’ve finally arrived at this.  In the words of Jesse Ventura, this is what the term main event is all about.  At the end of the day, nothing else on the show matters besides this match.  This is the match that a lot of so called experts (including one with the initials K. B.) said would never happen in a million years.  Yet low and behold, here it is.  I’m not sure if you can call this match about passing the torch because Cena already is the top guy and has been for years while Rock hasn’t been on top arguably in about 11 years.

 

Still though, to call this anything but huge is an understatement.  This is one of the few legitimate dream matches left for WWE and it has to come close to living up to the expectations.  I say close to because I don’t think it actually can live up to or surpass them, not with the hype given to them.  The match is going to be great as it’s Rock vs. Cena, both of whom deliver on the big stage.  I’d expect it to go at least 25 minutes if not over half an hour, which is a long main event in modern WWE.  After that you have to worry about Rock’s cardio, whereas Cena could possibly rival 1986 Flair in that department.

 

As for a prediction, I have to go with Cena.  At the end of the day, I don’t see the value in Rock beating him, maybe popping up on Raw the next night and then bailing.  I’m not completely locked on that, but I think it’s what I have to go with.  As for Cena turning heel, again I see no need for it to happen, which we’ve gone over many times before.  As for interference…..I’m not sure.  There are reports of people like Miz, Batista or even Brock Lesnar interfering in it, but I’m not sure I’d buy anyone but Brock as a candidate for that.  The others aren’t people I see meaning much otherwise, but Brock vs. Rock or Cena is a huge main event to set up for WM 29 before we get the only match worthy of the main event of Wrestlemania 30: John Cena vs. The Undertaker.

 

Oh and if they do a rematch at Summerslam or Mania next year, I won’t be shocked but I’ll be annoyed.  It’ll likely happen though.
