WrestleMania XXVIII was the twenty-eighth annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by WWE. It took place on April 1, 2012 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. It is the highest grossing PPV event in professional wrestling history.
There were eight matches on the event's card. The main event on the card was a bout between Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and John Cena, a match that, for the first time ever, was announced a year in advance. Given the tagline "Once in a Lifetime", the match was considered a bout between the two icons of their generation who were both in their prime. The match, and its year long buildup, was broadcast on NBC and later sent to DVD and Blu-Ray, collected under the title of The Rock vs John Cena: Once in a Lifetime. The match was later featured in WWE Best PPV Matches of 2012 as the Most Anticipated WrestleMania Match of All Time. A rematch was scheduled for WrestleMania 29 for the WWE Championship, which Cena won.
