The Rock explains why he picked to wrestle Cena again

The Associated Press published a long article with The Rock yesterday all about WrestleMania 29, one of the perks of having a mega star like him being involved in the show. The article was picked up by several other media outlets.

“It’s the biggest show of my career,” The Rock – who is now 40 – said, revealing that it was his choice who he wanted to wrestle this year on the show.

He said he chose John Cena because it made the most sense and it was the biggest money match WWE could offer right now. Besides that, he said there is deep respect in real life between the two.

“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,” The Rock said. “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.”

One newsworthy thing in the article was that The Rock hasn’t decided if he will be taking part at WrestleMania 30 next year despite being involved in the press conference when New Orleans was announced.
