The Reason The Rock Beat Cena

Rating: 8 votes, 2.38 average.
Hey guys Knox here, hope all is well as usual. 21st birthday is April 8th on Easter lol just had to plug that again. But yeah guys, you all know I'm not a Rock fan but I'm a huge Cena fan but even I'm happy as hell Cena lost and I have my reasons. Point blank, Cena losing was better for business.

Reason 1: Cena Losing Better for Business
This was indeed better for business and hear me out. I know alot of people say that the top guy losing to a full time actor was a bad move which can be argued but hear me out.

Remember a couple of blogs ago I was discussing how cool it was to talk about wrestling? Back in the Attituder Era people would talk about it all the time.

As many of you know, I'm black, I'm around black people all the time as well as white people. All everyone has been talking about before Wrestlemania was the Rock. Everyone was talking about the Rock. All over twitter, all you see is the Rock. Lol the ghetto girls in the hood I live in are all talking about the Rock. Everyone at work talking about the Rock.

There was a time about 3 months ago and counting where it wasn't cool to talk about wrestling. Hell, I never discuss it with my friends at all. But ever since the Rock deal, man in every class I'm taking this semester in college its been the talk of the class. Hell, my marketing teacher was discussing how brilliant WWE was with the marketing.

My female friends are talking about wrestling and its all because of the Rock. Wrestling is becoming the cool thing to talk about again. I'm no Rock fan at all but I love the guy for making this sport cool again.

I can't tell you in the past 2 weeks how many people have said to me "Yooo I haven't watched wrestling for years but ever since the Rock came back I've watched it every week". You get what I'm saying here. You can't have that man lose if he's the reason all these old school fans are starting to watch again. That's bad for business.

Reason #2: Brings More Heat to Cena
This can also be argued. Many people say if Cena would've beat the Rock in his hometown that would draw the ultimate heat. I can easily agree with that. But I feel like the fact that he loss, he will get even more heat from the older fans just because they can say he let all the kids down.

This loss gives Cena even more heat because now when his music hits, the woman and children aren't as loud for him because many kids do actually believe Cena let them down. This forces the people that boo Cena to make their voices even louder because they have a reason to boo Cena.

Basically, booing Cena if he won would just make the fans look more like haters and make Cena's fan even more proud. But Cena loosing gives his haters the chance to boo even louder to rub the loss in the faces of his fans.

Reason #3: Cena Winning Would've Been Too Predictable
Everyone thought Cena was going to win. Everyone was under the impression that Vince would not let The Rock bury his top guy especially with Rocky going straight back to Hollywood. Also, the fact that Rocky was in his hometown left me to believe that Rock was going to lose. Vince has a history of booking wrestlers to lose big time matches in their hometown.

I was watching the match with my Dad aka the biggest Rocky mark ever. Win the Rock got that pin fall we were shocked as crap. Not too many people expected to see that and as a Cena fan, I actually enjoyed seeing him lose that match because it made it more fun for me because it wasn't expected. So kudos to the WWE.

Conclusion:
Hope you all enjoyed this. Like I said you argue both sides but I feel like the booking of this match was top class and one of the best booked matches I've seen in my life. The transition of Cena trying to steal Rocky's move to ending up in the Rockbottom was sick. Personally I wish the match would've went a little longer but I enjoyed the hell out it.

Thanks guys for reading my blog, be safe and check out my music. Thanks guys a million. Until then.<u><strong>

    Hey Knox, great blog as usual, and happy early birthday. Anyway, I totally agree with you this time. I was definitely one of those who expected to see Cena win and who was actually rooting for Cena. I'm not a Cena mark, but it would've been fun to see all those people you referred to who just started watching again because of the Rock get let down. But at the same time, that's just my selfish opinion, and you're absolutely right about it being bad for business. People are already hating on the Rock for doing this match then going straight back to Hollywood (even though he just flat out said he's going for the belt). Truth be told, we don't know what the plan is. For all we know, the Rock could start showing up on RAW every week. We're not the ones making these decisions. Hell, maybe next week we'll see Rock, Brock, and Tyson Kidd in a triple threat on Superstars. It's highly unlikely, but it's still humanly possible. I guess what I'm getting at is that I agree having Rock win was the smart thing to do. And with his speech he gave the next night on RAW, it just raised more questions than answers. The whole point of it is for us to keep watching to see where it will all go. With that being said, WWE played this one perfectly. Rocky marks will keep watching to see if and when he'll show up, and Cena marks will continue to watch to see what ends up of their hero. Brilliant.

    Great blog. No matter what people think about The Rock, you can't say that the man ain't entertaining. The last 6 weeks probably created more buzz for the wwe than the last 6 years.

    Also, I agree with what you said about kids losing faith in Cena, just go on youtube and watch videos posted of kids and even young girls crying because Cena lost. I must admit, I was laughing my ass off on a few of them because some of those people are too old to be crying over wrestling.

    If they have Cena go down like he seemingly is, I too see a great character change coming out of this. Great blog, man

    For starts; Happy early Birthday bud!!! Figured I'd throw that in there before giving my opinion.. For starts I've never been a Cena, or Rock fan. Generally I like them both for what they've done for the business, and will defend them in any way when being bashed. Yet I asked myself the same question while watching the conclusion of the match this past Sunday... I wanted the Rock to come out on top. Hell, I even hoped if Cena won, that we would be getting that "heel" turn we've ALL been anticipating...but NONE of that happened.. We as the fans infact got what we really wanted... Yet despite ALL of that, I'm still left here slightly bitter... Asking myself; what the f*ck was the point for a years build up, when it had no shocking ending, no twist whatsoever, no handshake finish,no heel turn...NOTHING!!! ...Months ago, The Rock stated in his return, that he was BACK, and back for good... Which we all knew the outcome...but why the following night after Mania, state that he plans on making another run at the title?... I'll leave it at that.. Either way, keep up with the vids..always loving them, and once again, hope you truly do have a great birthday bud! Ps; SOOOO would've been better had Mania been booked this weekend instead of lasts

    The Rock has lost many a major match to put over other guys. Not saying that this is pay back for that, but winning and losing doesn't get guys over. It's HOW they win and HOW they lose that get guys over.

    Trips just lost to the Taker for the 2nd time at Wrestlemania, is he any less over because of it?
    Eeeeeexxxxxaaaaacccctly
