(6) “Never Before, Never Again”: The Rock and John Cena vs. Awesome Truth (The Miz and R-Truth)
Before the match, John Cena hugged the widow of WWE hall of famer Arnold Skaaland at ring side.
After the opening flury, fans chanted “you still got it” at The Rock. The Rock had R-Truth pinned, but Cena was going after The Miz, which distracted the referee from making the count. The Miz encouraged The Rock to tag in Cena, and he finally did as the crowd booed Cena as he entered the ring. Fans started a “you can’t wrestle” at Cena. As Truth worked over Cena, fans did a “lets go, Cena sucks” chant, followed by “we want Rocky.” The Miz and Truth continue to work over Cena, obviously to set up the hot tag to The Rock. STFU by Cena on Miz, but Truth made the save. With Miz working on Cena, Truth went after Rock on the outside. Truth dropped Rock on the guard rail. At 19:11, The Rock is finally tagged in. Rock bottom on Truth. Sharpshooter by Rock on The Miz, but Truth made the save. Cena speared Truth out of the ring, leaving Rock and Miz in the ring alone. Spinebuster by The Rock, followed by the people’s elbow. Rock pins Miz at 21:32.
After the match, Rock thanks the man up stairs on the ropes, while Cena claps for Rock as he walks away from the ring. Rock invites Cena back into the ring. The Rock goes to a corner and gets cheered, Cena goes to the other and gets booed. They argue, Cena walks away, but gets a rock bottom courtesy of The Rock as the show ends.
