Many people have had an opinion on the upcoming match at WrestleMania 28 between John Cena and The Rock. But as the road to WrestleMania comes to a head, more evidence is proving that WWE Creative may be setting up the ultimate job.
Recall last year, The Rock returned to host WrestleMania 27. Months before the biggest pay-per-view of the year, The Rock confronted Cena about the grief they had with each other.
Around this time Anti-Cenation was starting to form and The Rock helped perpetuate the downfall of Cena's popularity. He got the crowd to chant "boots to asses" and cost John his championship match against then WWE Champion, The Miz.
Returning to the present, the last time the WWE Universe has seen The Rock on WWE programming was at Survivor Series. Cena was taking part in a "legends intervention", which consisted of Mick Foley, Rowdy Rod, and Kane trying to convince Cena that he will not gain the respect of the fans without reacting to their chants.
After a long enough battle with Kane this past Monday, Cena threw caution for the fans aside and verbally attacked Dwayne with aggressive tones and words.
The Rock returns in 2011 to tear down an arrogant Cena who's only fans are children and females.
The Rock returns in 2012 to uplift the newly aggressive Cena and show him that fans appreciate a change in personality.
Yes, this is a pattern. This legend versus legend match is the last stop on Cena's "Reinvention Intervention". Recall when Kane said "If you can't beat me, you can not beat The Rock"? That was a foreshadowing, a clue to hint at the inevitable.
John Cena is the WWE's golden boy and The Rock is passing the torch. The Rock is the "People's Champ" and by jobbing to Cena at WrestleMania he will be endorsing the WWE Brand. Just as Hulk Hogan did for The Rock at WrestleMania 18.
Sure the back and forth between Cena and The Rock has been amusing, but all signs point to Miami becoming JOB CITY for The Rock. Think about it, who better to help Cena's character change than the one man who could turn heel and barely lose any fans? It makes since.
So here are the questions...
If The Rock jobs at WrestleMania 28 and Cena Wins, like the signs are alluding to, what would be your response?
If Cena loses and The Rock leaves WrestleMania 28 victorious, what will happen to Cena's character? And what will be The Rocks role heading into WrestleMania 29?
Last, What is the likelihood of this match ending with no clear winner?
