Backstage News on The Rock vs. John Cena Rematch
– There has been talk of trying to get The Rock to return to RAW in the next few weeks to help boost ratings.
– Michael Hayes has been pushing hard to keep WrestleMania Season “simple” with The Rock defeating WWE Champion CM Punk at the Royal Rumble and the losing the title to John Cena at WrestleMania 29. At this point, nothing is set in stone.
At least one person on the WWE creative team has suggested that they not do Rock vs. Cena II at all. The argument is that there are no more one-time-only dream matches, there haven’t been any in years and there aren’t really any that can be done anytime in the near future – at least dream matches of the magnitude of Cena vs. Rock.
With that said, chances are slim that Rock-Cena II won’t happen because they want WrestleMania and the Royal Rumble to be huge this year.
