After tonight’s WWE RAW, it’s official: The Rock will be returning to the WWE ring for the first time in over seven years to face John Cena in Miami, Florida at WrestleMania 28. The Rock accepted Cena’s challenge for a match but said he wanted it to take place one year from now: April 1, 2012 from his hometown of Miami, Florida
The Rock extended his hand to Cena and the two shook on the match before taking a beatdown from The Corre. Cena and Rock ended up coming back and fighting the group off. WWE confirmed that the match will take place at the end of tonight’s broadcast. This is the first time that a WrestleMania main event has been confirmed one year in advance. Obviously, things can happen between now and then that would stop the match, but it looks official at this point.
