- The Associated Press has a new article up on WWE Champion The Rock to promote WrestleMania 29. The article features quotes from Rock, John Cena and Booker T.
Rock said his WrestleMania 29 match with Cena is the biggest of his career. He added that the rematch with Cena made sense because it was still the biggest money match WWE could offer. The article notes that Rock called the shots for his return this year and he chose Cena to feud with for WrestleMania.
Cena put Rock over with these comments:
“I always knew he loved the business. He loves it so much now that he really is the busiest person in the history of the WWE. He’s everywhere at once. He can do everything and still compete as WWE champion. I wish we had one guy with 10 percent of his vision and his aspiration. When he gets a small opportunity, he kicks the damn door down and owns the horse. Often times here, we have superstars that remind me of a hamster on the treadmill and those are the guys that usually complain. I don’t take too kindly to them. I’m fortunate Rock’s here and I’m glad he’s here. He can show up whenever he wants.”
Rock also put over Cena:
“He’s been the No. 1 guy in the company for many years now, and has managed to maintain a genuine, optimistic love for the business. Often times, inherently, what the business creates is pessimism over time, and unhappiness. John has been able to stay above that, not get lost in the garbage, and not get lost in the noise. He’s very focused, very committed. There’s an X-factor about John that moves an audience.”
The article made mention of a potential Rock vs. Brock Lesnar match at WrestleMania 30 but pointed out that Rock says he still hasn’t decided if he will wrestle in 2014.
