Rock vs. Cena: Analyzing their signature maneuvers

In less than two weeks’ time, The Rock and John Cena will collide for the second time in as many years, meeting in an epic WrestleMania rematch that will put Cena’s bid for redemption against the enduring legacy of The People’s Champion. Add The Great One’s WWE Title to the mix, and this gem has an air of destiny about it.

As the WWE Universe knows from last year’s WrestleMania, a bout as big as this can often come down to a single missed opportunity. In their recent Q-and-A session on Raw, Rock and Cena alluded to their previous contest and how each man had either taken or given “everything they had.” But what, exactly, is everything they have? Before the two iconic Superstars clash again at The Show of Shows, dusts off our Academy of Wrestling Arts & Sciences white coats for a comprehensive analysis of both champion’s and challenger’s in-ring calling-cards.
