That's the main thing I hate about Icon vs Icon or Legend vs Icon matches, they try to sell the match by name value and promos alone. This may work in boxing and UFC but not so much in wrestling.
I actually feel very similarly. And I think it's because, in terms of a compelling feud/storyline/angle... there wasn't any for Cena/Rock I. All of those segments on Raw, all of that bullshit... It sucked. Let's be real, it was lame and obnoxious for a whole host of reasons. The match itself and the business end of it for WWE was a wild success for what it was going for. But the build-up toward it? Eh. Nothing special at all, especially once we hit autumn 2011 with all of that nonsense with Cena simply wanting Rock to be his partner for no reason. I swear a crack-addled monkey could have written a better storyline in five minutes than that horse shit. How about... Miz and R-Truth pummel Cena nearly to death at three WWE shows in a row (Vengeance and two Raws in a row), Cena seems in peril because of their unpredictable tactics. Rock shows up and says, "Hold the phone, I don't want my historic dream match vs. John Cena at Wrestlemania XXVIII ruined by these two jabroni bitches, I'm here to save Cena for the sake of whooping his ass at Wrestlemania!" Instead we had the biggest, most absurd clusterfuck of an angle (as well as cruelly disappointing in too many ways to list) and that segued to the following year's crap with Rock and Cena.

A real storyline this time, with the WWE Championship at its center? I think it could be cool, and it might even redeem them for the huge swing and a miss (or did they swing at all?) with providing a strong storyline for Wrestlemania XXVIII's main event. Ever since Wrestlemania III, there has been a tradition of Wrestlemania main events becoming rematches at future Wrestlemanias, a theme that will apparently continue with Rock and Cena.

And Starbuck's right. The Streak has proven to be a definitive draw of Wrestlemania. Lesnar is being set up for that match. It's not like the Summerslam main event between Triple H and Lesnar was some kind of universally adored instant classic that everyone wants to see again. It'll be interesting to see how well it did when the Summerslam buyrate comes out, but it seems rather clear that the two likely matches underneath Cena/Rock II are Lesnar/Undertaker and probably Punk/Triple H (since they can link Punk and Triple H up through the Heyman/Lesnar connection), and on top of those you can probably bet they'll pull the trigger on Sin Cara/Rey Mysterio along with something big involving Sheamus/Orton/Ziggler/Barrett from Smackdown, probably, and something for Daniel Bryan, The Miz and Alberto Del Rio. Maybe Damien Sandow can finally win the Intercontinental Championship there from someone, perhaps Christian?

WWE WrestleMania'dan iyi kar etmek istiyorsa Punk'ın Rock'ın karşısına ıkması en doğrusu olur.

"Then I started walking down and people started getting it and then I beat the crap out of Cena. That was one of my highlights. I thought this is awesome... I messed with everybody."

If you could have a bout with anyone, who would it be?
"I would say The Rock. The reason I wanted to be a WWE Superstar was because of The Rock. I used to watch him in The Attitude Era. There was no-one more electrifying and no-one more must-see than The Rock. Seeing that I just always wanted to have a singles match with him.

"I had a tag match with him at a sold-out event at Madison Square Garden, which I was the main event in. I don't mean to brag about that but I sold out Madison Square Garden in two minutes. Note to self."

Cody Rhodes On The Rock and Brock Lesnar's recent returns: "Well, I mean, I walked into The Rock's dressing room at WrestleMania and thanked him for the number of people who were there that night and the number of people who ordered it on pay per view. I have such respect for The Rock. And now with the return of Brock it's completely different than The Rock. But for me, it kind of just made me angry and not in a way like, 'Oh, blast. They get to be on another pay per view.' More in a way that I'm out there working. I never take a day off. I never plan on taking a day off. I'm so in love with the wrestling business I couldn't see myself going away. And these guys have that ability to come back in because they have that presence, they have that following and are just automatically accepted as superstars again. So there's something to learn and something to be kind of irritated from that whole Attitude Era generation, but I get it from both the good and the bad."

WOW Cody is the rock'fans
Wow, seems like a really honest and genuine comment from Rhodes.

Miz is a known huge Rock fan but it's nice to know that Cody also gets it. Especially the part when he said that he walked into Rock's locker room and thanked him for the gate and the PPV. That's what every worker in the company should have done. But Cody grew up in the industry with his father as one of the greatest performers of all time so it's not surprising that he's ahead of the curve.

I know no one wants to hear this but there is one obvious match for Taker besides Lesnar, Cena, Rock at WM 29.

Sting. As unlikely as it sounds Sting has thrown some hints that this would indeed be his ideal retirement match.

Rock v Cena for the WWE Championship
Undertaker v Sting
And something along the lines of Triple H and Mayweather v Punk and Lesnar

I don't have a problem with Rock vs Cena II happening again at some point but that time isn't WrestleMania 29. the match last year was fresh and they gave us spoons full of both going back and forth (wether you thought it was awesome or sucked) they interacted a lot.

I just think you should let the dust settle on it and do it again when it would feel fresh and big again, both guys are young enough that come WrestleMania 31+ where they might not have the same amount of big matches or megastar talents they have right now, doing that one again with different dynamics with Cena's character possibly it would be much bigger deal.

I think Rock and Cena have matched they both could be doing for the next two WrestleMania's which could happen right now which are bigger than the possibility of a rematch which could still happen in 3/4 years when these couldn't.

for example

29
Rock vs Punk
Cena vs Austin

30
Rock vs Brock
Cena vs Undertaker
