Nobody would have though less of him since he lost to a guy who's been booked like superman for the last eight years. It's not like he would have lost to a jobber like Yoshi Tatsu, he lost to John Cena. Hell, Hogan lost to Rock at Wrestlemania 18 and he won the WWE Championship a month later.
The only other time I can think of WWE putting over a wrestler from the past era over the previous era in a big time match was Hogan beating Randy Orton. And, well all know Hogan's ego, so that's not a shock.
No the reason why they put the Rock over Cena is because they think the fans want to see 3 matches between these two. Also all Cena said for a year was The Rock could not beat him at Wrestlemania so if he won the first match what would that have proven? Getting Cena to walk out and say I told you so?
