The quality of the WWE rivalries has been miserable for a while now, but The Rock and John Cena are coming to the rescue. And their rivalry will be the saving grace for the WWE.

Regardless of what Cena does, he’ll always have a quality fan base. His entrances have received some of the most electrifying crowd reactions since a certain someone left.

No, it's not Stone Cold, although he did get the crowd going—it's The Rock. He’s getting the crowd on its feet just like the Brahma Bull did back in his heyday.

Now that The Rock is back, he and Cena will have a feud that will be the best since Vince McMahon and Stone Cold went at it.

Here’s why.

They’ve both have hit the silver screen

Both The Rock and Cena have been stars of movies. The Scorpion King and The Rundown received better receptions than any of Cena’s movies; but both superstars received a huge reaction from their respective fan bases.

Regardless of how bad Cena is at acting, there will be people that go see his movies.

The Rock’s return will bring the WWE back to prominence

Once The Rock left, a lot of WWE fans left with him. He’s the best trash-talker the business has ever seen. His ability on the mic makes every rant he goes on extremely entertaining.

Rants like this are the reason Cena will never compare.

No one talks like The Rock. Cena brings fans in like crazy.

This will be a rivalry for the ages.
