It's pretty obvious that Rock/Cena III is happening at Extreme Rules. I'm sure Vince isn't that stupid to have Rock vs Cena headline a WrestleMania PPV for the third time in a row.

Besides, they already planted the seeds of a Brock/Rock match at next year's WrestleMania with Paul Heyman tweeting that he has a special opponent for The Rock at WrestleMania XXX.
I think you underestimate Vince's stupidity. If this WM gets a strong buy-rate Vince will wanna book Rock/Cena III at WM 30. And the only reason why Rock/Punk II happened a month later is because WWE just wanted to hurry up and kill off the feud to build up to "Twice In A Lifetime"

Its just interesting how one is loved so much while another is hated so much



You make a very valid point. Remember when Rocky first came in there was a lot of talk that he was going to have three matches with Cena. I for one was no surprised they did the rematch this year. I am starting to think WWE is stupid enough to have them again next Mania, it will be obvious if they make the terrible decision of wasting Rocky/Brock for Summerslam
Well there is rumors right now that they wanna do Brock/Rock at Summerslam this year so if that happens than I am sure we will be getting Rock/Cena III at WM 30. People really do give this company to much credit. There is no reason to have this rematch this year but since it is happening and if Cena wins they will be stupid enough to wanna break the tie next year.

Like I said before, Vince may be senile but even I wouldn't think he would be foolish enough to pass up on big money matches like Taker/Cena and Rock/Brock at WrestleMania XXX just to have another Rock/Cena match. With The Rock agreeing to work the Extreme Rules PPV, it will finally put an end to the Rock/Cena feud with Rock leaving to shoot the Hercules movie and will return to feud with Brock Lesnar which is why they have been kept apart from each other.

Alright well see what it happens trust me I do hope I'm wrong but I have this feeling Vince is dumb enough to do this match again next year especially if this WM gets strong buy-rates. Vince doesn't care about putting on great matches anymore its all about the MONEY!!!

Vince is a moron. The fact that he let Cena beat Brock proves it, and he further cemented it by not booking Rocky/Brock this Mania which wouldve broke last years record.

Nope Vince only cares about his political agenda, even over money. Pushing Punk to the heavens when he was red hot wouldve been the logical think to do but instead they killed his momentum cuz it doesnt fit there plans to have a guy who looks like that represent the company no matter if hes far more popular than Cena. This Mania also proves this point, he would rather have his goldenboy get a pointless win then book Rocky/Brock cuz he doesnt want to part timers setting records without Cena there to steal some of the credit.

This. You are so right I never even thought about the political agenda before but it all makes sense to me now. I remember last year after WM 28 and after Lesnar returned that there were rumors that they wanted to do Rock/Brock at WM 29. I think what happened is after the WM 28 buyrates came in and Vince saw how strong they were he thought he could strike that same magic twice with booking the match again this year.

People just don't seem to understand that Vince no longer cares about what the hardcore fans want. There is no reason why Cena/Taker and Rock/Brock could not happen this year. All Vince cares about is trying to continue his failed attempts of trying to make Cena considered one of the "GOATS".

So I fear that if WM 29 gets strong buyrates will be seeing Rock/Cena III in the main event of WM 30.

I dont see how anyone thinks that match will draw nearly as much? Majority of Rocky fans dont want to see him job to Cena so they wont pay to see it, only people who will are Cena fans and die hard WWE fans while everyone else streams it. It will do over a million buys but not close to last years.

Think about this, do you think Vince wouldve let Hogan and Goldberg headline a Mania when both were part timers in 2002 or 2003? No way, he wouldve wanted his own talent to be in that spot so he can brag about it. Deep down im sure Vince knew if Brock wouldve squashed Cena like he shouldve then faced an unbeaten Rocky at this years Mania that buyrate wouldve crushed last years proving his entire roster is an afterthought and not on par with legends. The entire point of Rocky/Cena is for WWE to force us to think Cena is on Rocky level, that by itself proves how clueless WWE is.

I think its going to happen. If you remember a year ago at the press conference for Mania 29 it was Rocky and Cena who closed the show with a staredown basically foreshadowing there future rematch. Well guess what, they did the exact same thing this year for next years Mania press conference, god save us all.

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

+1 to the above two posters.


WWE is trying to prove that Cena is on the Rock's level.And even though we've seen over the last two years,that even a toned down Rock is too much for Cena,yet WWE wants us to think otherwise.


And yes I don't think Rock's fans would pay to see him lose to f*** John Cena of all people and crushing their ideal at the grandest stage.


PS: In India Wrestle-Mania is on free TV and not on PPV,yet I am boycotting this year's main event,only because of WWE's betrayal.When you promote a match as 'Once in a Lifetime',better keep your word,rather than making mockery of us fans.


Anyway,Rock is such a gentleman,he never had any problems in the past with losing and putting over talent and never will have.It is because of this humility that I respect The Rock so much.Despite being the biggest superstar of all time,and tasting success in and outside the pro-wrestling industry unlike anyone,how can someone remain so benign and down to earth really beats me?!

Cena bad-mouthed Rock since 2008(real not kayfabe),and yet he is putting this guy over,strange!

THE ROCK: The biggest star and draw of pro-wrestling industry EVER.

1. Holds the record of drawing most arenas with 10,000+ attendance on top in one calendar year. [Broke Hogan's(1986) and Austin's(1998) record in 1999 and set a record of headlining over 100 shows with 10,000 plus people in attendance in year 2000. A box-office drawing record that is unsurpassed till date.]

2. Holds the record of main-eventing almost 17 PPVs that have got over 500k buys. Over 80% of the PPVs he main-evented drew over 400k buys. As a PPV headliner no one is even close.

3. Drew the highest cable ratings during the AE(real quartely segments not over-run). Took ratings to heights never before seen in 2000.

4. Sold more merchandise than anyone active(Austin) between mid 1999-2001.

Yeah, I don't see WWE letting Rock beat Cena again... This match is way too predictable and the fact that they are doing it two Manias in a row is simply pathetic.

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

^ Dead right.Only profitable outcome of this feud can be only when Cena turns heel,and becomes another Paul HEYMAN guy,and the leader of the Shield.Then this faction should dominate WWE for years to come,making the show much more enjoyable.


But the way WWE protracts Cena,I don't know whether they will alow him to turn heel or not.Perhaps Vince is too afraid of what happened at WM 17,that heel turn literally killed one of the most popular characters of all time,so perhaps he doesn't want to repeat the past mistake(in his mind).


Having said that I think Cena will prove to be a fantastic heel,this guy can draw heat like anyone.


But lets keep our fingers crossed whether Cena turns heel or not.If he beats Rock clean and remains face,then the show will go back circa 2010 days aka boring.
