The Rock accepted John Cena’s challenge to compete at WrestleMania XXVIII
Let’s cut right to the chase. In arguably the biggest announcement in the history of WrestleMania, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson accepted a challenge from John Cena to compete at next year’s WrestleMania XXVIII in Miami, Fla.
The dream match-up began brewing weeks ago when The Great One and the Cenation Commander-in-Chief traded verbal barbs. The spoken sparing eventually escalated to physical confrontation until, finally, the animosity culminated at WrestleMania XXVII. During Cena’s WWE Championship Match against The Miz, the WrestleMania host cost his rival the title when he leveled him with a Rock Bottom.
Now, there’s no one and nothing standing between these two legendary Superstars. When the two finally consented to meet, their agreement was interrupted by The Corre, who ambushed the iconic Superstars. Big mistake. Rock and Cena punished their attackers and demonstrated why, when they meet in The Great One’s hometown of Miami, the temperatures are sure to rise in the face of heated rhetoric and hot competition in a match that’s guaranteed to go down as one of the most epic battles in WWE history.
