Once in a lifetime is how this match was promoted. Two icons, from separate generations competing to see who is the better man.
The match was hyped for over a year.
The Rock has beaten everyone there is to beat in the WWE and needed to defeat John Cena to prove that he is the best of all time.
John Cena needed to defeat The Rock to prove he is the best, and if he lost, he claimed his life would be over.
The debate raged for months on who should win this match and why.
After the match began, we saw both men have nice streaks of offense. It was hard for either man to get the upper hand for too long.
Both men were able to hit with their finishers, and apply their submission moves, but both men were able to kick out, and not give up.
It was hard to figure out who had the upper hand, and who would come out victorious until a lapse in judgement was shown by Cena.
Cena had The Rock laid out in the middle of the ring. Cena looked as if he was going to do the five-knuckle shuffle once more, but decided against it. He wanted to embarrass The Rock.
Cean was going to attempt to finish off The Rock with his own move, The People's Elbow. Cena ran the ropes, and when he got back to The Rock, he was met with a Rock Bottom.
Rock covered, and the ref counted to three.
The cockiness of John Cena cost him the match.
