wwe.com, on Rock vs Cena:
Despite giving it all he had, Cena came up short because of a brief moment of hubris. It was the most crushing defeat of his career. Questions lingered whether he could recover from such a loss.
What’s the equation? Focus vs Hubris. Every match on this card extented and toyed with that idea…. That’s why John Cena, filled with false pride, tried to hit The People’s Elbow on the Rock and was punished…. They are absolutely not concerned about John Cena’s drawing numbers as the loser of Wrestlemania XXVIII. In fact, it’s a side bonus for them. If he had won and he’d stuck around, who would he fight? Now, Cena’s been knocked back down. He can start over. He can do something different. He can be challenged.
That’s a nice one to get right.
