Cena is set to face off with The Rock on April 1 -- and the match has become one of the most anticipated in wrestling history.

Cena should be fine but it is now interesting to see how the writers will tie this into the Rock and Cena's battle.

Luckily, it seems like Cena is not hurt. This leaves the WWE Universe to wonder whether or not this is real or if it is kayfabe. 

If this the latter, then the WWE just added a very weak storyline to the Rock and Cena feud. There would be no reason for this to be involved between the two because it adds nothing to the storyline. 

If it is real, then we should all hope that nothing happened to Cena because no on would ever want to see anyone get hurt, regardless of how they feel about them. It seems like John will be okay based on the accident report; if anything he may have some soreness, but not much.

Real or kayfabe, Cena will be ready for the battle against the Rock on April 1 at WrestleMania 28.
