It is one of the least anticipated main events in WrestleMania history. Last year proved the "haters" right in that Super Thug can't carry a match and that The Rock isn't what he once was.
What also ended up ringing true was that their first bout fell way short of expectations. The match was rather poor and considering the vast amounts of rest spots, rather boring as well. The crowd was certainly into the entrances, but the crowd noticeably fell off during the match.
The biggest ovation came when The Rock won and the match was over. It was clear that the previous match of that night (HHH vs. Taker) stole the show and stole all the magic: not shocking at all. This match will once again main-event the show, although it clearly shouldn't, as it will once again fail to live up to being an actual great match. Hopefully the match is at least solid, though.
Anyway, as we all probably know by now, word on the street is that Super Thug will once again claim victory, and that the WWE will start killing itself once again (I kid, I kid...Not really). Some say the heel turn will finally come to fruition at this year's show. Maybe it will, but it certainly is still predictable and lazy work from creative. Options? There are plenty to fix this disaster:
1) The Rock wins clean - This would surprise the entire arena and everyone watching. Not only that, the WWE universe would highly appreciate it. The Rock isn't a great champion at this point, but he is a much better option than Super Thug. The Rock NEEDS to put someone else over because we all know the man he will be facing at WM this year, DOES NOT NEED THE WIN. Been there, done that.
If you want The Rock to drop it to Super Thug at Extreme Rules, that is fine. But in the biggest event of the year, predictability should be the last thing on the creative team's minds. Rock wins, leaving a visibly frustrated Cena on the mat but also leaving the door open for one more match and a future heel turn.
2) The Rock wins clean and Cena turns heel after the match - Sure, the show could end with The Rock celebrating a glorious victory but how about instead of Super Thug just moping around, he decides to attack The Rock with no regard for his well-being whatsoever.
While The Rock is down, Cena pulls out a chair and a thick chain. He then proceeds to unconsciously beat Rocky down with vicious chair shots including one that busts his head wide open.
He follows the multiple chair shots by choking him with a thick chain while putting his foot on The Rock's back as he bleeds in agony. The Rock eventually passes out from the pain without any movement and Super Thug gets a couple of more chair shots in just for good measure.
He pauses, looking down at the victim of his stored rage. He turns his head around slightly and stares the crowd down with a sadistic smile on his face until his lips read "word life, bitches." Finally, he faces the crowd openly and throws his hands up in the air as if he was the true victor of the night.
3) Dolph Ziggler cashes in MITB - Yes I know that Ziggler's briefcase is for the World Title, but how about a story line that later reveals he secretly asked Vince McMahon to exchange his brief case for a WWE title brief case.
Regardless of who wins this match, Ziggler stepping up to cash in would absolutely throttle the crowd reaction from either man simply winning the match in a clean fashion. This is a major long shot, but you would put Ziggler (A top 3 in ring performer) where he belongs and open up several future feuds including with The Rock if he wins the original match.
4) The Rock turns heel - This is probably the most unlikely scenario, but The Rock is unarguably one of the greatest heels of all time. While his run as a heel was not very long, he was extremely good at drawing heat from the crowd during the Attitude Era. I would love it if he starts calling the crowd trailer park trash once again.
The Rock can use his acknowledgment of fans criticizing his title shot, title run, and his Hollywood background as reason for his turn. He could just have a great speech right after he beats Super Thug in a dirty fashion and let the crowd know exactly what he is thinking so people can't wait to tune into the next Raw.
Maybe he brings back the $500 shirts, who knows, but a Rock heel turn would allow Super Thug to remain a babyface until Rocky leaves for Hollywood again.
