CHAPTER 1 EXCERPT:
It was April 1st, 2012 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.
The occasion was WrestleMania 28, an epic event in sports entertainment that arguably featured the greatest attraction in the annual spectacle's storied history.
Before a record crowd of 78,363 fans who drew an equally momentous gate of $8.9 million for World Wrestling Entertainment, "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson battled John Cena to a stirring finish in the main event twelve months in the making.
For the capacity crowd in attendance and millions more watching all over the world, The Rock's long awaited showdown with John Cena resulted in a WrestleMania match the excitement and drama of which can never be replicated.
Or can they?
Given how plans are taking shape ahead of 2013's presentation of WrestleMania 29, WWE fans who believe they've already seen the "best" may, in fact, be stunned at the WrestleMania WWE officials are now putting together - a WrestleMania that could truly be the greatest of all time.
For the WWE, being in a position where fans are once again viewing today's programming, pay-per-views, and live events as some of the best the company has ever produced is a very healthy sign for the lone power in professional wrestling.
And it’s an achievement that few believed was possible just a few short years ago.
