WWE WrestleMania 28: Is Rock vs. Cena a Bad Idea?

John BetschelCorrespondent IIApril 4, 2011

Monday Night Raw has just ended, and besides finally seeing the debut of Sin Cara, The Rock and Cena had their showdown once again.

Except, this time, John Cena asked for a match and told The Rock to "bring it." The Rock then accepted the match, but said it wouldn't just be any match. No, it would be on the grandest stage of 'em all—WrestleMania 28.


In the history of wrestling, I don't think there has ever been a match made one year in advance. Personally, I don't believe that they will wait that long.

Fans want to see this match, but to wait an entire year? I know I sure don't want to wait an entire year for that match. I don't feel it's that a good enough caliber be waiting a year for. And I don't actually know a match that would be.

Maybe The Undertaker vs. HHH Round 3.

That would be a match that I would personally wait a full year to see—especially after seeing the match they put on last night.

I will be shocked if they actually do wait until WrestleMania 28 to have The Rock vs. Cena match.

I could see if they were going to have it at SummerSlam. That gives a decent amount of time to build the match up, and it's going to get a lot more people interested. By making a match a year in advance, people aren't even going to be thinking about it until it gets close to WrestleMania next year.

With the match being at SummerSlam, that's only a few months away. That will keep people's interest sparked. Plus, it's the biggest pay-per-view of the summer, and one of the big four that the WWE throws. The others, as you know, are Survivor Series, Royal Rumble and, of course, WrestleMania.

So, if the WWE really is planning on having this match at Wrestlemania 28, will people still be interested in it? It has its advantages and disadvantages. Personally, I feel that making a match that far in advance—one that isn't as outstanding as raising of Andre The Giant from the dead and having him go one-on-one with The Big Show—is a bad idea.

Let me know what you think, though.

Will this go down at WrestleMania 28 or sooner?

And if it does go down at WrestleMania, is it a good idea?
