With WrestleMania 28 being only 20 days away, the predictions and opinions of WWE fans are running rampant.

In just 20 days the most anticipated match in WrestleMania history will take place with John Cena battling The Rock.

The scenarios and predictions are all over the web, with people stating various reasons as to why John Cena or The Rock should win.

Simple! The Rock must win this match!

The main reason is to build up a bigger match for him next year at WrestleMania 29.

The Rock has gone on record saying he's back, and all reports indicate he will be competing at next year's WrestleMania.

If The Rock were to lose to John Cena, it would kill any momentum for The Rock going into future matches. For this reason, The Rock must win at WrestleMania 28.

So how do you create a bigger match for The Rock next year? You make his next feud more personal.

Here is the scenario.

After defeating John Cena in a classic match, The Rock and John Cena shake hands. With Cena leaving the ring, The Rock celebrates his victory.


In front of 75,000 people in his hometown, The Rock is enjoying his celebration as the pyro goes off and it seems that WrestleMania is over.

Then, as The Rock comes down from the turnbuckle, he turns right into an RKO.

Randy Orton lays The Rock out, followed by one of his patented punts to The Rock's skull. The show ends with Orton standing over The Rock, wearing a new "Legend Killer" T-shirt.

Immediately Randy Orton has made it personal with The Rock.

He has now taken out The Rock in front of his hometown fan base and his family.

If this were to occur it WrestleMania 28, it would be the perfect start to build up another dream match that many fans would want to see—Randy Orton vs. The Rock at WrestleMania 29.

With Randy Orton taking out The Rock, it would write The Rock off WWE television while he has his other commitments in Hollywood, and enable Randy Orton to turn heel, stating that "he was sick of being written off" and that he is "the best wrestler of the current era."

His reason for taking out The Rock is made apparent by stating that, he is "still the Legend Killer and he will not let the legend of The Rock allow him to be overlooked at WrestleMania or in the WWE ever again."

This is how I would book the ending of Wrestlemania 28. How would you book it?
