Celebrity News: South Florida Native “Rocks” WrestleMania
Florida Vacation Guide to the results of WrestleMania 28
Last night at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, South Florida native, Dwayne The Rock Johnson triumphed at WrestleMania 28 in a “once-in-a-lifetime” match with John Cena.
78,363 fans packed into the Stadium to watch WrestleMania last night – a number that the WWE claims to be a Sun Life Stadium record. When that announcement was made, a fireworks display went off along with smoke effects, shooting flames and a gigantic screen-within-screen display that took up most of a football end zone.
A highly anticipated event
Anticipation for WrestleMania XXVIII has been building since it was booked, exactly one day after WrestleMania XXVII took place in Atlanta Georgia. Fans had been teased since then of this Once in a Lifetime match between John Cena and The Rock.
The build up for WrestleMania 28
As far as the fans are concerned, it doesn’t matter that the hits to the face (and to the ego) of the wrestlers in this “pseudo-sport” are all scripted by WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment). Not really. Fans don’t know the outcome of the match going in which still makes it exciting to watch and this year, WrestleMania was that much more suspenseful with the return of The Rock in a head-to-head match with WWE icon John Cena.
John Cena has been known to publicly accuse The Rock of turning his back on the WWE to go to Hollywood at the first chance he got. The Rock would counter those comments by questioning Cena’s manhood by calling him names like “Fruity Pebbles.”
When it was over
The Rock won the match and the crowd went wild in thunderous applause as South Florida residents cheered on one of their own.
It’s a good thing The Rock won. One fan held up a poster that read, “If Cena wins, we riot.”
