Is everybody ready for Wrestlemania? I know I am. In what some are calling the most predictable Wrestlemania of all time, I am so very excited to see if I am right or wrong in my personal predictions. It’s too early to tell what’s going to happen, and even if I tried convincing you, you truly never really know what the crazy company of WWE is going to do, and I like it that way.
I burst my Wrestlemania cherry when I attended Wrestlemania 27 in Atlanta, GA and I dubbed it the most average Wrestlemania of all time. Having been through that, what’s the worst that can happen? Haha.
I don’t know about you, but I love being right, and if this years ‘Mania is so easily predictable, then don’t you like being right, too? Alright, I’m kidding. You like being wowed and hit out of left field. Well, so do I, but expect a little of both. It is Wrestlemania, afterall! I mean I predicted Snooki would win, but I had no idea she could do a backflip.
The second that Cena won the Rumble we all knew Rock would beat Punk, but then Punk beat Rock. Remember that feeling? Of course Vince came out and reversed the decision but until that happened, you didn’t know what the hell was going on. That was me having my cake and eating it too. Thank you, WWE.
Even I can admit, Rock/Cena II, at first, kind of made me roll my eyes for a second, but only because it made perfect sense. But then I got to thinking… These are the two top money-making guys. It’s Hogan and Warrior all over again. Except this time, the stakes might even be a little higher with The Great One’s Hollywood baggage involved.
The Rock is a mega-star. Did anyone actually doubt that he could be? The man can do it all. He can sing. He can dance. He can tell jokes. He can tell stories. He can act. He can wrestle. He can play football. He can model. He can play musical instruments. He can connect to people all over the WORLD. This man CAN NOT be beaten. But will he be? I doubt it, but there’s a chance, and that’s why I’m ordering.
John Cena is the best guy for any job that he wants. This guy has a drive that is unparalleled by no other except the man he will be facing at Wrestlemania. If you’re the owner of a company and you’re looking for a workhorse to take a beating and keep getting back up and the time comes where you need to make a decision on who to put that blessing/curse on, the time comes when you need to hand someone the ball and then rest easy knowing it was in good and loyal hands, would you not choose John Cena, a man who smiles in the face of his critics and delivers every night even harder than the night before, to run that ball? I know I would. John Cena is perfect as far as being a company man is concerned. People hate him for it. But my opinion on hate is you have to care first before you can hate. John Cena makes people care. Cena is a symbol of perseverance and that is something that I think deserves to be rewarded. Plus, anytime someone complains about John Cena, my buddy Mike always boils it down to two things: 1)He F-U’d Viscera, Viscera. And 2) He F’U’d K-Fed. That’s gotta count for something! Haha. But seriously, the reason WWE gives John Cena so much credit is because the fans are too fickle to be able to do it themselves. John Cena getting a second chance at his characters biggest failure lets me know that John Cena CAN NOT be beaten. It’s the proverbial unstoppable force and the immovable object in its purest form. I personally can’t wait to see the Rock humbled by Cena just as Cena was humbled by Rock one year ago. But then again, if he can’t beat Cena, is he truly “The Great One?” This match I gotta see. I just hope the Rock keeps his cardio in check. Cena is a machine. But if The Rock’s matches with C.M. Punk are any indication if The People’s Champ has knocked off all that ring rust, I think we’re gonna need to take a deep seat come this year’s wrestling Super Bowl.
The two had a promo last Monday that I felt was the deal-sealer. Each man said enough to make me believe that it was coming from their respective hearts. It completely sucked me right in even more than their feud did last year for two reasons. I love sequels, and they were smart enough to not make us sit on it for a year like they did the first one. People have wanted Rock vs. Cena ever since they saw that Cena had mic skills back in 2003 and now the two are primed for competition. Neither are rookies, neither are over the hill. This is it. Cena represents the workhorses, and Rock represents the legends who have already earned their keep. Cena needs this more than Rock, but Rock must prove that he truly is the Hollywood badass that keeps the people running to the box office to see their champion. The result of their match has huge implications. I can’t wait to find out who WWE wants the man to be.
Thanks for reading. It’s my first blog. I’m sure they’ll get better. In the meantime, love what you do, especially if it’s watching wrestling! Thanks guys!
