John Cena and The Rock are undoubtably two of the biggest WWE Superstars of all time.
The Rock began his professional wrestling career back in 1995 when he started his training for the craft. In 1996 he landed a deal with WWE and went on to win the Intercontinental Championship, and eventually joined The Nation Of Domination and The Corporation before going on to win the WWE Championship.
Around 2004 The Rock made his silent departure from WWE, slowly appearing on less and less shows before completely being gone from the roster, in favor of pursuing other opportunities in Hollywood. Over the course of his career he won 10 World Championships, two Intercontinental Titles, five Tag Team Title reigns, and the winner of the 2000 Royal Rumble.
Cena's professional wrestling career began just as The Rock was leaving WWE, as he made his main roster debut around 2002. Over the course of his career, Cena has won a record-tying 16 World Championships, four Tag Team Titles, five United States Championship wins, and two Royal Rumble wins (2008 and 2013).
In the year 2011 The Rock returned to WWE to host WrestleMania 27, and went on to assist The Miz in retaining his WWE Title against John Cena in the show's main event. The night after on Monday Night RAW, Cena challenged The Rock to a match at WrestleMania 28 - and "The Great One Accepted." In The Rock's hometown of Miami, Florida one year later, The Rock emerged victorious as he won the match that was being advertised as "Once In A Lifetime."
The following year, The Rock returned to defeat CM Punk for the WWE Championship and would go on to defend his title against John Cena in the main event of WrestleMania 29. This time around, however, "The Leader Of The Cenation" came out on top and won the WWE Title. The two man have since established an alliance on WWE TV throughout Rock's future WWE appearances.
Currently, however, Cena is at a point in his career where he is slowly on his way out from the business and is focusing his attention more on Hollywood, and could possibly achieve the same amount of superstardom as The Rock if he plays his cards right.
While Cena has landed some pretty big roles in his acting career over the years, he could possibly land the biggest of his career as he and actor Joshua Sasse are the top candidates to portray the role of Shazam in the upcoming Shazam DC Extended Universe film, per a report from Screen Rant.
For Cena to land a lead role in a DC or Marvel film would be huge, as the franchises are currently massive right now. What would make the film all the more interesting, however, is the fact that The Rock has already been cast as the main villain in the film, Black Adam. Rock will also be serving as one of the film's producers. If Cena and Rock are both cast in the film, this means that the pair would eventually have to clash against one another on the big screen.
Rock's character is also set to get his own spinoff film from the franchise, however, there have been rumblings that Rock could not be in the 2019 film. Cena still has to win the role in order for anything between he and Rock to happen, but it's still interesting to think about.
