Before last night’s WWE RAW broadcast, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to his social media accounts to tweet to WWE to not “fire” John Cena from the company, as per the stipulations of his match with CM Punk at Money in the Bank Sunday night on pay-per-view. “@WWE please don’t fire John Cena. You owe it to the WORLD and GOD to have my boot go right up his phony ass at Wrestlemania 28,” Johnson said on Twitter.
Later, after Cena apologized to Johnson earlier in the day, Johnson called the apology “phony”. “Cena – get back on your tour bus, call up your favorite yum rocket, take your apology and stick it straight up your phony ass,” Johnson said in a follow-up tweet.
Early Monday before RAW went on the air, Cena said the following on Twitter to Johnson: “I would like to take a moment to publicly apologize to Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson. In an effort to make WrestleMania 28 as big as possible I tried to expose The Rock for his flaws. Very childish and immature on my behalf. My comments about the Rock’s absence were both unprofessional and childish. I am sorry. Rock, I truly wish and still hope in my heart of hearts that the crazy old man who is the boss reconsiders his totally rash decision. Because Chicago was insane last night… And it made me think of what Miami could have been. I guess sometimes you do not know what you have until it is lost.”
