The results are in from Monday Night Raw 2/25/13 and John Cena is still going to WrestleMania 29 to battle The Rock for the newly designed WWE Championship. Cena defeated CM Punk in one of the best TV matches in recent memory to keep Rock-Cena II intact, and you can check out the highly dramatic and entertaining closing sequence below.
CB’s Slant: This was an outstanding effort by both men and I love the clean finish. CM Punk’s Piledriver was the highlight for me, not just in its execution but in its underlying meaning. After all, the Undertaker uses a Piledriver of his own.
We all knew Rock-Cena II was set in stone, but for roughly 25-30 minutes last night, none of that mattered. I found myself in the moment so to speak, and Punk and Cena both deserve kudos for that.
