John Cena Defeats The Rock at Wrestlemania 29 for WWE Championship


John Cena The RockAfter 30 grueling minutes, John Cena emerged the champion from MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

The West Newbury, Mass., native won the WWE Championship from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at Wrestlemania 29 after hitting him with his patented “Attitude Adjustment” finisher. The Rock beat Cena in the Wrestlemania 28 headlining match last year.

The match, and event as a whole, was panned by some for being too predictable. The Rock is leaving to shoot the film Hercules: The Thracian Wars in the coming weeks, so he was expected to drop the championship belt due to his busy schedule.

The Undertaker extended his Wrestlemania undefeated streak by beating CM Punk in what many considered the match of the night. The Undertaker is now 21-0 at the WWE’s biggest event of the year.

Triple H took down Brock Lesnar in a no-holds-barred match after giving him a “Pedigree” on a section of steel steps. Had Triple H lost, he would have been forced to retire.
