Re: The Rock vs Cena Promo

thought it was a great promo, the facial selling by cena at the end suggesting "man maybe i can't beat this guy" was so much money

Re: Official The Rock vs. John Cena Thread: Greatness vs. Redemption, TWICE IN A LIFE

Just complete spit balling here but I thought up of two scenarios in my head, aside from the one WWE will probably go with, on how this will end that will make a lot of people happy and intrigued.

WWE's way: Cena wins a clean match and comes out on top with the WWE Championship.

What I thought of, and it's strictly thought up of, it's not me thinking this will happen or anything, just spit balling to make the most of Cena-Rock II.

Over the next few weeks, WWE continues building up that John Cena NEEDS to get his win back and Cena continues stressing that he will be anything to get that win back and right the wrong. The Rock continues playing up that he knows he can beat John Cena because he's done it before. He says he'll do it again at Wrestlemania 29. Rock says John Cena will go down as the man that lost to The Rock two times at two consecutive Wrestlemanias. The go-home show to Wrestlemania concludes with Cena snapping and Cena-Rock having a brawl to close Raw, which has the locker room try to separate them to close the show.

A) John Cena has his usual big Wrestlemania entrance in all black attire, black shorts, t-shirt, hat, etc... they wrestle a clean, respectful match for about 12 minutes until the referee takes a bump and chaos ensues. Tons of brawling in the ring, outside of the ring, and we start seeing glimpses of that "anything" Cena was referring to, as he low blows The Rock to get an advantage. Cena takes a steel chair and goes crazy on The Rock with it while the referee is down, a la WM17 Austin-Rock, and when Cena goes for the cover, it only gets a two. Cena has a "what the hell do I have to do to beat him" look on his face. Cena rips off the turnbuckle padding to distract the referee and it allows Cena to take the WWE Championship and nail The Rock in the face and pick up the victory. Next night on Raw - Cena stresses that he NEEDED to right the wrong and said he would do anything to do it and he did just that. It leads to a final encounter between Rock-Cena at Extreme Rules in a Last Man Standing match.


B) Cena-Rock wrestle a clean match for about 13-15 minutes when Paul Heyman suddenly makes his presence felt. Rock-Heyman would have a brief backstage segment on the go-home show for Wrestlemania (Rock-Brock foreshadowing?). Rock would turn his attention to Paul on the apron and drag him into the ring, but as the referee would try pushing Paul out of the ring with his back towards the action, Cena would grab a steel chain and nail The Rock in the face with hit. Cena-Heyman would stare each other down and lip "anything" at each other. Cena pauses in the ring and seems like he's getting flashbacks to Wrestlemania 28, and starts pummeling The Rock, beating him down. Cena picks up the victory and acknowledges Paul Heyman after the match in the ring. Leads to Cena-Rock III at Extreme Rules and plants the seeds for Rock-Brock at Wrestlemania 30.

Now, A equals John Cena REMAINS a babyface or at least, a tweener. He doesn't turn full heel, he just shows a different side to him, a desperate side to him, a more aggressive, edgy side to him. B equals John Cena turning full heel, and that's why it's NOT going to happen at all, at least not right now, because WWE doesn't want it. Like I said, just random thoughts popping into my head on the match and build. I feel like WWE needs to do something big to keep the fans interested post-Wrestlemania as Cena will be WWE Champion, but odds are they go with Cena winning a clean match and probably shaking hands with The Rock after it's all over. Just random thoughts.

Both scenarios would also lead to Cena-Taker at WM30, B plants seeds for Rock-Brock, so there's the double main event.

Yellin', "One, two, three, four, five
I am the greatest rapper alive!"
So damn great, motherfucker, I've died
What you hearin' now is a paranormal vibe

Re: What does Cena gain from beating The Rock?

Either if he turns heel or not Cena must win the match...then he should challenge Taker for a match at WMXXX.

If indeed there is going to be Cena vs Taker WMXXX, then if Cena beats Taker for the streak, I swear to God I will just stop watching. The streak should never end. EVER!

Re: The Rock vs Cena Promo

It wasn't that bad at all, especially considering they don't seem to have any beef whatsoever. That's hard to do, cut a 'mutual respect' promo and still make it appealing.

Oh you were not aware of this?
Your posterior better contact someone at once!!

Re: The Rock vs Cena Promo

Not surprised most of the negative reception to this promo come from Punk marks who cannot accept the fact that this opening act for the rematch already blew away anything Rock and Punk did 2 months prior.

Who do you think is being the mark right now? Geez.

I'm a huge fan of The Rock, and a once member of the Chain-Gang. That promo on RAW was disappointing for me, it was even worse than my low expectations. I actually enjoyed their work last year, the storyline made sense and there seemed to be some real beef going. This storyline clearly makes no sense whatosever, and it is painful to not see Rocky calling Cena out on his bullshit (what was fun last year was seeing Rock say all of the things we felt about Cena, as a face, and get away with it). The storyline is bullshit, and neither seem into it.

I think Cena suits Rock as an opponent better than Punk, at least. Punk was camping it up as an old-school diabolical villain, and Rocky made the mistake of going preachy and righteous, which really is not his strong suit. Rock is at his best when he is acting like a cocky jackass. As for Cena, I have no clue what is left for him anymore, other than to turn heel. His face schick is so stale now it is unbelievable.

I mark for (right now):

William Regal
Shinsuke Nakamura
Dean Ambrose
Sami Zayn
Enzo Amore & Big Cass
Zack Sabre Junior

Infinite marking and endless love for:

Eddie Guerrero
Larry Sweeney
Macho Man Randy Savage

On topic,

The promo itself wasnt bad at all. The reason why I did not like it was that I dont buy this shit that "Cena absolutely needs this win" because thats how they built the feud last year, then he lost and he didnt give two shits about it. The second reason is, I am just not into this feud.. these guys have no chemistry together. Rock keeps saying how Cena is one of the greatest of all time and how he has the passion for this business like no one else backstage, I am a Rock fan but thats just bullshit.

The whole rematch is being built around putting Cena over as one of the GOAT and I am not liking it one bit. Cena will gain absolutely nothing from this and its just a waste of a Rock match and a WM mainevent.

Rock vs Cena vs Punk with the whole feud revolving around the WWe title would have been a better mainevent for WM IMO.

Re: The Rock vs Cena Promo

I don't get why people hated the promo they had on Raw this past Monday. Both guys did their job and that was sell the importance of the match to each. They both were serious about it and Cena's smile seemed perfect on this occasion and I'm not a Cena fan.

I think fans, myself included, expect or look for something that is not really there and need to respect and enjoy what's currently happening.

Re: The Rock vs Cena Promo

It's still hilarious to me how everyone is jizzing their pants over this promo. I can see it now the next 4 weeks with ppl posting on here how awesome the Rock/Cena segments are. Vince truly is a genius he knows how to fuck with the mindless sheep fans. I just can't wait when everyone is bitching after WM when Cena is burying every heel on the roster wait a min? He has already been doing that the past 8 years. Anyways enjoy your "Twice In A Lifetime" build up guys.
