There is only way to end RAW tonight and it's with The Rock and John Cena having a freestyle music battle. John Cena brings his raps while The Rock strums the guitar.
If promoted properly through the entire show, I see this being perhaps one of the most ratings for the final quarter of RAW. The history both superstars have with the musical flavored comedic gimmick promo are remembered by many and present a ton of potential. WWE is in Cleveland tonight, the city has experienced the talent of The Rock's signing on personal level when he sang about the Cavaliers NBA team.
So The Rock and Cena exchange verbal jabs, scripted or otherwise, and then what? How does it finish? Last week John Cena watched The Rock walk away and finished RAW celebrating with the crowd.
The week before The Rock watched Cena leave and he closed the show.
Tonight's RAW ending needs to contain the verbal shots that nearly brings the superstars to physical altercation. The physicality can't happen yet. Personally, I would be fine if they don't get physical until WrestleMania but they will likely trade punches on the go home episode of RAW.
So we stop the physicality with the only force that can stop it, Vince McMahon.
It's the road to WrestleMania and only fitting for McMahon to have some insertion in WWE programming. The Rock vs Cena is working so well because it is art imitating life. The two genuinely have dislike for each other.
Vince McMahon coming out is consistent to the realistic progress.
McMahon comes out to stop the two from getting physical because he needs to protect his big money WrestleMania main event, it doesn't get any more real than that? Actually if Vince McMahon would come out and order John Cena not to have a single match prior to WrestleMania to avoid injury, that would be the ultimate realistic move.
WrestleMania 28 has the chance to be the highest bought WWE pay-per-view ever and it all is riding on The Rock and John Cena. It's the match that was made a year ago and you don't want anything to threaten the golden goose.
