Finally, The Rock has come back home. Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson will face West Newbury, Massachusetts native John Cena in one of the most highly anticipated matches in history in the main event of WrestleMania 28 on Sunday, April 1 in Miami, Florida.

The feud between Cena and The Rock has been brewing ever since Cena was the victim of a Rock Bottom at WrestleMania 27 that cost him dearly in his match against The Miz. In the buildup to WrestleMania, both Cena and The Rock have been trading monologues over the last month on WWE's Monday Night RAW.

While The Rock and Cena have drawn the most attention, there are plenty of other matches that may very well steal the spotlight. Triple-H takes on the Undertaker in what is being billed as The End Of An Era match (Hell In A Cell), with Shawn Michaels (a.k.a The Heartbreak Kid) serving as the special guest referee.

C.M. Punk will also defend his WWE Championship title against Chris Jericho, and Sheamus will challenge Daniel Bryan for his World Heavyweight Title. Cody Rhodes takes on Big Show for the Intercontinental Title and Randy Orton and Kane will settle their feud with a grudge match of their own.

In addition, there will be a 12-man tag team match between Team John Laurinaitis (composed of David Otunga, Mark Henry, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, The Miz and Drew McIntyre) and Team Theodore Long (composed of Santino Marella, R-Truth, Kofi Kingston, The Great Khaili, Zack Ryder and Booker-T), and the winning team's general manager will have control of both RAW and Friday Night SmackDown.

Finally, there will be a divas tag-team match between the team of Maria Menounos and Kelly Kelly and the team of Beth Phoenix (current WWE Divas Champion) and Eve Torres.
