WWE John Cena vs The Rock

John Cena vs The Rock was a match in the making for many years. Both were icons of their respective eras. John Cena was the modern-day Hulk Hogan with his catchphrase of ‘Hustle, Loyalty and Respect.’ A multi-time world champion, he had almost done it all but something had lingered in the background. A legend from the past was coming back.


Enter the Great One. The Rock. A 3rd generation superstar. Alongside Stone Cold Steve Austin, he was one of the top stars of the attitude era. A 7-time WWE World champion, he was the most electrifying man in sports entertainment. His charisma, attitude and talent took him beyond the ring and into the world of Hollywood. He was no longer a WWE superstar but a bonafide movie star starring in hits such as Fast Five, Faster, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Skyscraper.


This match was something that the WWE Universe had craved for a long time. When The Rock returned to the WWE in 2011, he went ahead and called out John Cena. In doing so, he set the stage for a match that was one for the ages. On April 4th, 2011, John Cena and The Rock shake hands and agree to meet at Wrestlemania 28. It was the first time that the main event was set a year in advance. The months that followed, tensions between the two reached a boiling point. The head-to-head encounter proved to be one of the best main events in WWE history.
