On Wrestlemania 28, The Rock faced John Cena for the Heavyweight Championship where The Rock defeated John Cena in a very hard fought battle. The match was named as a 'Once in a lifetime' as it was the most anticipated match at that time because Cena was already in his prime and The Rock, who returned to WWE after 7 years was a well known Hollywood celebrity.

His return to WWE this year would be a huge deal for the Pro Wrestling Community. Therefore, this match will be bigger than The Rock vs John Cena.

The Rock left WWE in 2004 because his contract had expired and his acting career had already started. He later appeared for a brief program with John Cena in 2011 and 2012, later on Wrestlemania 32 in 2016 and his last appearance was at the debut of Friday Night Smackdown on Fox back in 2019.
The WWE Universe has been very excited about his return for a long time. His long awaited return will be one of the many reasons this feud will be a blockbuster.

I fought one of my cousins, The Usos, Jey Uso, you know, about a year ago, and where better to kind of solve problems than in the squared circle, you know, in the WWE ring," revealed Roman Reigns.
