The Ruthless Aggression Era will always be recognized as a period in which WWE raised and made stars out of a few youthful entertainers that had gotten through its formative framework. Two such entertainers were Brock Lesnar and John Cena.

Lesnar and Cena took various ways to the highest point of the business. From the very beginning, Lesnar was treated as (and alluded to as) the Next Big Thing. He was placed in the ring with any semblance of the Hardy Boyz and Rob Van Dam promptly and given open doors right off the bat in his primary list remain that others basically were most certainly not. He was given the rocket push to the highest point of the organization, vanquishing The Rock for the WWE title at SummerSlam in 2002, only four months after his Raw introduction.

Cena, then again, stirred his way up through the positions. His first match against Kurt Angle demonstrated that he had the capacity to be a significant star for World Wrestling Entertainment. Tragically, the innovative group couldn’t gain by the force Cena worked for himself during his initial not many appearances on SmackDown and soon, he was left to flounder in the midcard.

It was not until he wore a Vanilla Ice outfit and spit some free-form raps that he picked up footing with the crowd and got one of the breakout stars in the organization. He would ascend to unmistakable quality in WWE following his triumph over Big Show at 2004’s WrestleMania XX.

Talking about WrestleMania XX, Lesnar would show up for WWE at the occasion, losing to Goldberg. He would not show up in WWE for a long time, during which time Cena would climb to the highest point of expert wrestling and star as its greatest fascination.

Their conflict at Extreme Rules in 2012 would be the first occasion when they had set things straight in almost 10 years.


On the April 2, 2012 scene of Raw, John Cena tended to the WWE Universe only one day in the wake of losing the greatest match of his profession to The Rock. He kidded a bit, examined the misfortune and afterward ended up cut off by the music of the returning Brock Lesnar.

The group in Miami ejected on the side of the previous WWE and UFC champion’s appearance, and that help possibly enhanced when he pulled Cena in toward him and conveyed the F5.

After seven days, John Laurinaitis reintroduced Lesnar to the WWE Universe, however Cena rushed to advance toward the ring. A war broke out between the Superstars, which wound up leaving Cena’s mouth bloodied. The whole WWE storage space spilled into the ring to isolate the contenders. The section just additionally added warmth to what was an exceptionally foreseen Extreme Rules headliner.

On April 16, Lesnar plunked down with to clarify why he returned to WWE and why he focused on John Cena. Cena, consequently, set things straight with the risky (in any event at that point) Tensai in an Extreme Rules coordinate. Indicating more shortcoming than any time in recent memory heading into his confrontation with Lesnar, Cena was steamed at the previous A-Train to the stun (and some enjoyment) of the WWE Universe.

Detecting that Cena needed a motivational speech in front of his conflict with Lesnar, “Appraised R Superstar” Edge came back to Raw to talk up his most loathed rival on the April 23 show.

Later in the night, Cena and Lesnar marked the agreement for their session, leaving fans enthusiastically foreseeing their titanic conflict only six days after the fact.

The Extreme Rules coordinate between John Cena and Brock Lesnar was an activity in fierceness. Lesnar, a relentless brute of a warrior, ruled Cena and totally outflanked him for most of the session. He cut the previous WWE and World victor off every step of the way and even had sufficient opportunity to play with him, regarding him as if he was definitely not his equivalent.

Lamentably for Lesnar, his presumptuousness and haughtiness cost him beyond all doubt. He messed with Cena as well and wound up eating a steel affix shot to the face followed by an Attitude Adjustment onto the steel steps.

Cena’s success did nothing to hurt Lesnar, in spite of what some may accept. For a considerable length of time, Lesnar was developed as the ideal mix of the relentless power and undaunted article. He realized how great he was and had no issue discussing it. That hubris and presumption outwitted him, and he paid the consequences for it.

The match was brilliantly worked and played upon the story that the inventive group was telling driving into the show.

Regardless of whether that story was imperfect.

Authentic Significance

Very quickly following the match, Lesnar started a storyline with Triple H that would prompt a set of three of matches between the two. Lesnar would win their SummerSlam fight, drop their WrestleMania 29 match and end the arrangement on a high note, beating The Game inside a steel confine at Extreme Rules in 2013.

He would be joined by Paul Heyman later in 2012. Heyman would fill in as his mouthpiece, something he painfully required.

Cena would remain the top star, fighting with John Laurinaitis, Big Show, CM Punk and Dolph Ziggler to finish off the year. He would vindicate himself and destruction The Rock for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 29.

Verifiably, the match filled in as Lesnar’s reintroduction to a WWE and ring. Following eight years away, he surely resembled a less cleaned contender yet was still more than fit for recounting to a story and carrying his savage and physical style to the match.

He would use that style against Undertaker at WrestleMania 30, turning into the principal Superstar in WWE history to crush the Phenom at the Showcase of the Immortals.
