Singles Match for the WWE Championship
On the March 14th episode of Raw, the Rock returned to the WWE as the guest host for WrestleMania 27.
The People’s Champion made fun of John Cena and the Miz in that appearance, saying he would see them at WrestleMania.
Six days later, John Cena became the No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber, while the Miz defended the title against Jerry Lawler.
In the next Raw, Cena brought back his rapper gimmick for one night only to respond to the Rock’s comments.
That same night, Cena and Miz were scheduled for a Tag-Team Championship match against the Corre, with Miz winning the match almost by himself.
But the Corre invoked their re-match clause immediately, then Miz betrayed Cena to let him lose the belts.
Cena and Rock continued mocking each other for the following weeks, while Miz took advantage of that to attack Cena several times.
Finally, in the last Raw before WrestleMania, John Cena and the Rock faced each other in the ring, but the Miz interrupted them.
After Cena left the ring, Miz and his apprentice Alex Riley attacked the Rock, but the latter countered and threw both off the ring.
Cena took advantage of that to apply an Attitude Adjustment on the Rock.
After seven years, the Rock is finally back on the WWE and he is having his long-awaited feud with John Cena.
The Miz has held his own in the storyline against the two icons. He now looks like a true main-eventer.
John Cena’s rapper promo was great, reminding us his best moments of many years ago.
After many years asking for a Cena’s heel-turn, at least the WWE teased us with the Attitude Adjustment on the Rock last Monday.
The build-up for this match has been almost perfect. Maybe it took a bit too long to finally get the Rock involved in a physical confrontation, but that was probably for the best.
People will always find something to complain about. But I don’t find anything serious to criticize about how this storyline has developed.
Two months ago, everybody would say that John Cena was going to win this match. Now, it’s not that clear.
The Rock is definitely the X-factor in this match. Will he cost Cena the match or wait until after the end to retaliate?
I still think Cena is going to win, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Miz manages to be the last man standing.
