John Cena Beats The Rock At WWE WrestleMania 29

John Cena Beats The Rock At WWE WrestleMania 29John Cena shocked the world Sunday night at WrestleMania 29 by defeating The Rock for the WWE Championship in the main event of the company’s biggest show of the year.

‘Worst year of his career’

As big as the title win is for Cena, it comes on the heels of arguably the worst year of his career. Cena lost to the Rock at last year’s WrestleMania and was the first superstar in history that cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase and failed to win the title. The marquee victory Sunday finally puts the current face of the company over the WWE’s former top draw; the torch has officially been passed.

Not only does Cena steal the biggest win of his career on the biggest wrestling stage there is, the leader of the CeNation walks out of WrestleMania 29 as the WWE Champion. The victory marks the 11th time Cena has won the company’s most prestigious title and the 13th time he has won a WWE world title.


As great as this victory was for the fans of Cena, The Rock undoubtedly has a rematch clause in the event that he did lose. When he gets that match will be a huge developing storyline. There are rumors that The Rock will be at performing at Extreme Rules 2013 (h/t Wrestling Inc.), and a rubber match between the two megastars would make the secondary pay-per-view unforgettable.

Allowing Cena to have his first title defense against The Rock would be a huge coup for the WWE, and Cena winning would make the WWE champion look invincible.

Which side did you bet your money on during the WWE WrestleMania 29? How about for the possible rematch — Team Cena or Team Rock?

WBO Investigation: Pacquiao Defeated Bradley

Five independent judges hired by the World Boxing Organization became the latest to conclude that Manny Pacquiao defeated Timothy Bradley when they fought for the welterweight title on June 9 in Las Vegas.

WBO president Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel announced on June 13 he would have a panel of what he called “five international judges” review the scoring of the highly controversial bout. Bradley won a split decision and ended Pacquiao’s seven-year winning streak in a result that outraged the sporting world. Judges Duane Ford and C.J. Ross each scored the bout 115-113 for Bradley, while Jerry Roth saw it 115-113 for Pacquiao.

The outrage at the call was so great that less than 24 hours after the bout concluded, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told Yahoo! Sports he would ask Nevada attorney general Catherine Cortez Masto to investigate the fight. Arum wants the investigation because the public and many boxing websites have accused him of fixing the fight and having a hand in the judging.

Valcarcel would not identify the five judges he had review the tape of the fight, but he said they were well-known, respected officials.He said all five scored it for Pacquiao. One of the judges had it 118-110, or 10 rounds to two. Two of them had it 117-111 (the same that Yahoo! Sports scored it on fight night), one had it 116-112 and the other had it as Roth did, 115-113.

Valcarcel kept a promise not to strip Bradley of the belt. He ordered a rematch, but there was a rematch clause in the contract and Pacquiao has said he wants to exercise it. Upon hearing the news of the WBO’s reviews, Pacquiao told reporters in the Philippines he was pleased and that he would defeat Bradley in a rematch to regain the title. Arum, though, said he wouldn’t agree to a rematch until he spoke with Pacquiao and explained the ramifications.

Should a rematch between Pacquiao and Bradley take place on November, which boxer would you bet on?
