The Rock Vs John Cena
I just don't buy Cena as a worthy opponent in this. It's not a modern Hogan Vs Rock for the PG Era at all. That match worked because it had meaning. It had 2 Megastars facing off against each other. It felt Epic and the match was legendary. The Rock Vs Cena is a twitter battle. A feud that doesn't have meaning and just doesn't work.
If they wanted a match with no meaning, that would be incredible and one that could still work but will never happen then how about a dream match between
The Rock Vs Shawn Michaels
The build up and promo's alone would be the greatest ever as both men are showmen. It's the one match I would've loved to have seen but never will.
Anyway back to Rock Vs Cena
I don't hate Cena but he's soooooooooo stale on the mic and robotic in the ring I can't take him seriously, probably like most fans over the age of 10. He's also just never going to have a legacy or star power like The Rock, even if he wins 100 titles. He's already defiled the belt. It's still tarnished and looks hideous.
Another problem is that since this feud started it's been all Rock. He's been burying Cena since day one and the fact Cena does nothing doesn't help. I know he's got this rise above the hate thing going on but it makes him look weak and lame. His character is lame and stale and anyone over the age of 10 knows it. Rock was never the most technical wrestler but compared to Cena he's on a totally different level.
Cena is the one this feud must be centered on because the back story isn't really there between them. It will rise and fall with him because The Rock will always be great in the ring and be unparalled on the mic. Cena maybe a big star and the top billed on the current WWE but he's being made to look like a total chump so far. The 'This is Your Life' segment was a TOTAL DISASTER. Buried by his own father was embarrising beyond belief. Now he's getting slapped around by Roddy Piper! Who's next to come out the woodwork and make him look like a chump.
I know all logic points to Cena winning at Mania but he'll be despised even more by all the fans that have been bored of Cena for almost 5 years now. Goldberg came back to Feud with The Rock and win. At the end of the day The Rock is a megastar and Cena isn't. The Rock was unselfish in the ring when he wrestled full time but I hope to God he's told Vince he's back to win. END.OF.
Cena needs to lose at Mania and just disappear for a while. Come back fresh with an entirely different angle. Don't go back to rapping with a chain but.........just be different. I'll never watch WWE again if Cena wins. It'll be a disgrace. Simply because he doesn't come across as a credible or worthy challenger. Rock passed the torch to him 7 years ago when he left. He doesn't need to do it again.
