While that outcome at WrestleMania 28 led to The Rock capturing the WWE title, Cena also enters this year's extravaganza with momentum on his side.
His victory in January's Royal Rumble match was an impressive return to form, and Cena, a former 10-time WWE champion, is 1/7 to reclaim the gold in New York.
Having suffered losses at two successive WrestleMania outings, Cena will be anxious to avoid a hat-trick of defeats, and with this motivation in mind it is worth backing WWE's poster boy to obtain his retribution.
Elsewhere, The Undertaker defends his 20-0 WrestleMania streak against CM Punk, and given his unparalleled success at the event, he is odds-on to triumph at 1/20.
No record in professional wrestling equals Undertaker's streak, and it will take a brave man to bet against the "Phenom", who only wrestles on this pay-per-view.
Punk, arguably his toughest challenger to date, recently enjoyed a 434-day WWE title reign, and his pedigree is proven on the grand stage.
However, his odds of 8/1 illustrate the sheer size of the task at hand for the "Best in the World", with a disqualification Punk's likely salvation if he is to triumph.
With Triple H's career on the line, "The Game" is 1/3 to claim vengeance on WrestleMania opponent Brock Lesnar, who he suffered defeat to at WWE SummerSlam 2012.
Lesnar humbled Triple H in that battle, and the former UFC heavyweight champion has proven to be just an unstable as he is talented since his WWE return in 2012.
Lesnar's price of 9/4 looks a little big, but with Triple H's in-ring livelihood at stake, it will take a lot for "The Beast" to secure a second straight success against his foe.
The fourth main event of the event sees Alberto Del Rio defend his World Heavyweight Championship against Jack Swagger.
Swagger, available at 2/1, only returned from a self-imposed hiatus in February, and despite his remarkable victory inside the Elimination Chamber, which earned him this shot, he remains a bit of an uncertainty.
Del Rio, meanwhile, has been relentless since his title success in January, which came against a mightier, more experienced foe in Big Show.
Swagger's absence of big match experience may hinder him on April 7, and backing Del Rio at 4/11 to keep the strap seems the way to go.
