John Cena put forth a valiant effort last week, but this is just getting unfair. The Rock is so far out of John Cena’s league that, at this point, it’s in the WWE’s best interest to make Rocky stop talking until WrestleMania.
Two weeks ago, when The Rock cut his first promo in seven years, it was mostly laughter and Barney turd jokes, but this week was a much more serious, impassioned speech. The worse part for Cena is that this great segment came just minutes after he bombed trying to cut a comedy promo on his actual WrestleMania opponent, The Miz.
YabbaDabba B*tch FTW!
But, in the long run, this really doesn’t bode well for the WWE. Imagine if Pac or Biggie came back for a brief stint and had a chance to show the world how much better they would be than the modern-day rapper. Would be interested in listening to the new breed of MC anymore? Probably not. That’s the danger the WWE is facing. Of the two most popular matches going into WrestleMania, one features HHH and The Undertaker – two guys in their 40s and on their way to retirement – and the other features The Rock, who’s only here for a few weeks. When these three guys leave, we’ll be back to John Cena, who’s proven over the last three weeks that he’s far inferior to the wrestlers of the 90s. Vince McMahon has his work cut out for him if he intends on keeping viewers past WrestleMania. In the meantime, we’ll just enjoy Rocky owning Cena every week.
Our updated WrestleMania XXVII Card
