WrestleMania 28: 5 Reasons Why the Rock Needs to Beat John Cena
WreslteMania 28 is just days away.
Soon, the world finds out who wins the match we have been waiting for since last year—will it be John Cena or the Rock?
For that matter, will it even have a clean finish with one of the two men standing victorious, hand raised, in the middle of the ring?
For the sake of the WWE and its Universe, that man needs to be the Rock.
Here are five reasons why The Rock must win this match.
Miami Is the Rock's Hometown
Let's start off with the obvious.
WrestleMania 28 is in Miami, the Rock's hometown.
No matter what the WWE tries to do to win over Cena with the fans, it won't really matter. The Rock will be a strong favorite just by walking into the building. Would the WWE really make the Rock lose in his own hometown?
I would hope not, but more importantly, what would happen if Cena won?
They might literally riot.
To make the Rock lose in his own town would almost be an insult, and after all he has done for the WWE, making him lose at WrestleMania 28 seems pointless.
Old School vs. New School
The Rock and John Cena come from two different worlds.
At WrestleMania 28, these worlds are going to clash.
It's a mix between the old school (Rock) and the new school (Cena). The Rock is a throwback to the times when wrestling was booming. He represents the Attitude Era, which many of us consider to be the greatest era of them all.
Even though wrestling today is entertaining, it has entered the PG era that those of us who loved the Attitude Era somewhat resent.
The Rock represents one of the best ages of wrestling, which is exactly why he needs to win at WrestleMania 28.
More WrestleMania Matches
If Cena beats the Rock at WrestleMania 28, then that's it. Cena wins, proves he is the better man, and the Rock goes back to Hollywood.
If the Rock wins, however, it sets up potential for future WrestleMania matches down the road.
The Rock is a busy man, he doesn't have all the time in the world to fight Cena. And when and if Cena does win, it would be a symbolic passing of the torch. But what if John Cena and the Rock have one of the best matches ever, and Cena ends up losing?
He gets to take another shot at the Rock at next year's WrestleMania, and when that happens, everybody wins.
We Need to Believe Cena Is Human
John Cena is not human.
Instead, he is some freakish form of a super human. The man has no weaknesses and hasn't really lost a main event in a long time.
Remember when he "lost" to C.M. Punk twice? The first time because Vince McMahon interfered, and the second time Cena had his foot on the ropes but the ref gave the three count anyway.
There was the recent feud with Kane, where Kane was trying to make Cena "embrace the hate." Well, Kane failed and was sent packing to deal with Randy Orton.
Someone needs to be able to beat Cena fair and square.
Why is he made to seem like he cannot lose?
The Rock needs to be Cena's Kryptonite. This way, we all know Cena can lose fair and square, and maybe start to like him a little more.
Remember All of the Fans
The WWE won't always be able to make all of the fans happy. But sometimes it seems like they are constantly trying to focus on Cena fans by having him win most of the time. The problem with this is that those of us who are fans, and enjoy seeing someone else besides Cena win, get put on the back burner.
Dont we spend as much on pay-per-views and merchandise as those who like Cena?
Don't we also attend the live events, and chant "Cena sucks"?
Most of us over the age of 12 would welcome the idea of Cena losing in a main event. The Rock winning at WrestleMania 28 would let us know that the WWE hasn't forgotten us.
