It's disclosure time again. If you are not a fan of spoilers, there is no need to read any further.
Especially if you are looking forward to all that WWE has in store for the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Well, with that out of he way, lets get down to business.
According to WrestleZone.com:
WWE has begun to send out promotional materials for the 2013 Royal Rumble DVD/Blu-Ray packages, and the following has been included in the Key Selling Points section of the press release, according to WWEDVDNews.com:
"Buzz is already building after the main event match-up announcement placing two mega-watt Superstars face-to-face for the first time since WrestleMania 28. The Rock vs John Cena for The WWE Championship."
Ultimately, this news isn't entirely shocking, as there have been several rumors swirling around the web, mentioning a potential Rock-Cena II at WrestleMania 29. Overall, this move makes sense for the company, as both men are proven money-makers and they broke records at WrestleMania 28.
Any way you slice it, the WWE is playing this smart. The fact is, the company doesn't need to take a gamble on a different headlining match for the WWE title. Especially when it has talent like The Rock in its arsenal.
Let's face it. Outside of The Rock and maybe the WWE, no one truly knows how long he intends to stick around. So, if this is his last run for a while, it would behoove the company to have this rematch at 'Mania for the title.
It will not only give the WWE a solid WrestleMania main event, but it will also allow the company a chance to make this a classic feud. Keep in mind, if this does happen, fans will probably witness John Cena getting the best of The Rock.
Which will give The Rock a way out of the company and allow Cena to carry the torch during his absence. Then, when The Rock is ready to return, the WWE can set-up a Rock-Cena III, in order to properly end their feud.
In the end, who knows if this is set in stone since Vince McMahon can change his mind on a whim because, ultimately, it's his product. However, he is a smart business man and knows what's good for his company, so chances are we will witness this historic rematch at "The Grandaddy of Them All."
