When then Raw General Manager AJ Lee announced last year that The Rock would face the WWE Champion at the 2013 Royal Rumble, we all knew he would likely regain the WWE Title for the 1st time in 10 years to help boost ratings going into Wrestlemania Season. When the face of the WWE John Cena went into the Rumble not the WWE Champion, it set up the inevitable Cena winning the Rumble, The Rock winning the title & a rematch of Wrestlemania 28 would occur at Wrestlemania 29 this time for the biggest prize in the game. The writing was on the wall, despite CM Punk being Champion for well over a year (400+ days) lately he had been booked as weak. First beating Ryback at Hell in a Cell, thanks to a low bow from a rogue referee, then again at Survivor Series due to The Shield interfering, the same group later attacked The Rock (including during the Rumble title match) & finally not competing at the TLC PPV due to a legitimate injury. All this making it seem as if Punk couldn’t win without help over the past few months or as being afraid, when during most of his title reign he stormed through the competition. Now it seems all but destined for Punk to fight The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 29 (unless by some miracle Stone Cold comes back) & most likely losing to Taker to keep the streak alive.
John Cena not only beat his new nemesis Dolph Ziggler, but also a returning Chris Jericho & what seemed to be at one time a destined future Champion in Ryback. The Rock beat the odds as well, with The Shield yet again interfering & originally losing, only to have Vince McMahon restart the match. All this after what looked like to be a botched spot with a table falling apart, landing awkwardly to hurt his knee, before he was to Rock Bottom CM Punk. Isn’t this what wrestling is about, beating the odds to only seem super human & win in the end. Thus once again this year we will likely see the headline match The Rock vs Cena, this time for the WWE Title, this time with probably a different result, due to The Rock having multiple movies releasing this year thus won’t be able to appear at shows at the rate of a normal champion. Do you think we are destined for a rematch? Or is there a swerve ahead (maybe Brock Lesnar)? If there is this rematch, who will win The Rock or John Cena? My gut tells me Mr. Fruity Pebbles John Cena will triumph of Hollywood Dwayne, I mean The Rock. Welcome to Wrestlemania Season
