Yesterday Dwayne The Rock Johnson turned 46, and many celebrities and former colleagues took it to social networks to congratulate The Great One. One of them is his former WWE adversary John Cena, who left a heart-melting message on Twitter.
A few years ago you couldn’t expect something like this to happen as the two of them were fierce rivals for almost a decade. After the rivalry was on hold when The Rock left WWE for Hollywood, the feud was once again reignited 2011. It was the biggest duel at the time as the two of them were headlining two of the most exceptional Wrestlemania events. The Rock won WM 28, while Cena finished on top at WM 29.
But now, few years after People’s Champ left WWE for good, and John is on his way to Hollywood the two have become quite friends. This is why Cena joined rest of the world in expressing admiration for Brahman Bull on the day of his 46th birthday.
Happy birthday to the standard bearer, the hardest working person in the room, an inspiration to myself and many around the world…and he’s my boss #HappyBirthday @TheRock

John Cena wrote on Twitter: “Happy birthday to the standard bearer, the hardest working person in the room, an inspiration to myself and many around the world…and he’s my boss #HappyBirthday @TheRock.”
You will notice that The Champ called Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle star ‘my boss’ which is a reference to their future cooperation. If you didn’t know, John Cena will have a leading role in a movie produced by Dwayne Johnson’s production house Seven Bucks for Universal Studios called The Janson Directive.
As for Cena’s career with the WWE, his latest appearance was at The Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia just a few days ago. But, after that it is not known when or will he participate in any of the upcoming events. In addition to working with Johnson on Janson Directive, he has also landed leading roles in Duke Nukem adaptation and Transformers spin-off Bumblebee.
The sad part of this very positive story is that with both Cena and The Great One entirely focused on Hollywood, the chances of seeing them together in WWE ring are slim.
