Over the past year, John Cena has been very vocal about his feelings towards Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and how he’s turned his back on the wrestling industry. Cena has called The Rock out on several occasions, saying The Rock has gone back on his word that he’d always remember the fans who made him a star. Now, Cena wants to settle their score in the ring.
In an interview with MTV, Cena said he wants to wrestle The Rock Dwayne Johnson at WrestleMania 26 for a one-night-only showdown of action stars. “I’ve been trying to wrestle him,” Cena told MTV’s Josh Horowitz. “It’s not that he won’t accept the challenge. He truly has a full plate.”
Cena then set a date for the possible showdown and revealed that he’s not even that confident that he could beat the Great One. “What a better showdown .. Dwayne Johnson, or The Rock, or whatever he wants to be called .. versus John Cena at, let’s say, WrestleMania 26. I’m not even saying I’m going to win. He’s a hell of an athlete. God-given ability. One of the nicest people ever to grace a WWE ring. I’d just like to get him back for a night.”
