It's difficult to believe that John Cena's career was almost on the cutting room floor in 2002. Fortunes changed once he was able to show off some of his own personality during a Halloween sketch where he parodied Vanilla Ice. His rapper gimmick caught fire, attracting a whole new generation of fans to professional wrestling.
At that year's WrestleMania 18, The Rock faced Hulk Hogan in an aptly named "Icon vs. Icon" match.
It took a decade for another match to be considered the biggest of all time, and Rock vs. Cena certainly delivered that.
Which begs the question, who on the current wrestling scene is a diamond in the rough? Who is showing that "it" factor right now—and, who, in 10 years time, will have taken over the industry to be enough of an icon to stand toe to toe with someone of The Rock's caliber at WrestleMania 38?
