What is the one thing that would make every wrestling fan seethe with copious amounts of anger? If “Once in a Lifetime” part 2 drove wrestling fans crazy, imagine what “Thrice in a Lifetime” would do to the millions (and millions) of fans in the WWE Universe. That’s right, nothing is confirmed yet, however, based on how The Rock vs. John Cena at WrestleMania 29 is playing out, it is a good possibility that this is not the last time these two are going to meet in the ring.
This Sunday, the WWE Championship match between Cena and The Rock is expected to headline and close out the biggest show of the year. After last night’s Monday Night Raw, the match is now anyone’s win. Usually with WrestleMania main event matches, we can tell who will come out of the match the victor beforehand. But this year, both main events (Cena/Rock and The Undertaker/CM Punk) are hard to call.
But let’s just say that Cena does win the WWE Championship and overcomes his transgressions and defeats The Rock, how would Rock redeem that loss? A rematch at next month’s pay per view Extreme Rules would be out of the question. Summer Slam is an option, but may not stick as much. The only viable option would be WrestleMania 30.
To the WWE, Rock vs. Cena part 3 at WrestleMania 30 would be the best way to close out one of the biggest feuds in wrestling history. In addition, this would be nothing but a mountain of dollar signs. More than likely, The Rock will have a major film debuting next spring and having The Rock on WWE television getting ready for what may be the biggest match of his career is more than effective. Cena and Rock are the media darlings of the WWE and after all, if Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin could main event 3 WrestleMania’s, then so can The Rock and Cena.
To The WWE Universe, half of them would have a great appreciation for this match. Since this would be the biggest rubber match in wrestling history it would finally solidify just who is the greatest superstar of all time. To have this match on the stage at WrestleMania 30 in the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, that is enough to have the entire planet on the edge of their seats. To the other half, this booking would receive extreme levels of hate of epic proportions and the only thing to ask is “will they still buy the event?” Only time will tell if any of this comes to fruition.
