John Cena Rock, It was obvious heading into WrestleMania XXIX that the WWE was facing an uphill battle in terms of getting The Rock vs. John Cena over with some of the more pessimistic fans. The jury is still out with regards to whether the company was able to do that, but the main event was booked to perfection nonetheless.
For any wrestling fan who frequents Internet message boards and social media, it probably seems like everyone hated the match between The Rock and Cena, but those numbers are obviously skewed. In the real world, there are plenty of fans who recognized the match for what it was and don’t feel the need to micro-analyze everything that happened.
It’s no secret that the Internet crowd is largely anti-Cena, and that same demographic has rebelled against The Rock since he became WWE Champion by dethroning their messiah, CM Punk. With two unpopular figures taking part in the WrestleMania XXIX match from a “smark” perspective, many already made up their mind ahead of time that the match wasn’t going to be good.
