Are you glad John Cena finally defeated The Rock? Read our take, then weigh in with yours.
The Cenation is rejoicing today, and rightfully so. John Cena was considered the underdog as he headed into his highly anticipated match with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on April 7 at WrestleMania XXIX, but by the end of the battle, he wasn’t just the winner; he was the new WWE Champion.
And while WWE Superstars are usually known for their (very public) trash talk, Cena kept is classy after besting The Rock. He shook hands with his rival in the center of the ring, and The Rock returned the respect.
The Rock had seemed pretty confident before the match, tweeting, “Its on. Biggest #Wrestlemania of all time. Greatest night of my career.” The People’s Champion even tweeted a picture of himself lacing up for the match, ready to take on Cena.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Cena and The Rock have come face-to-face at Wrestlemania…
John Cena & The Rock’s Wrestlemania History
Just last year, the titans clashed at Wrestlemania XXVIII, which fans believed would be a “once in a lifetime” match. Little did they know, the Superstars would do battle just one year later, with very different results this time.
John Cena actually stopped by HollywoodLife.com last year to talk about his original match against The Rock, but of course, the topic of conversation quickly took a very weird turn.
