Based on various interviews with The Rock, it's safe to assume WWE always planned on promoting a rematch between The Rock and John Cena at WrestleMania 29 on Sun., April 7, 2013, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. This despite the fact that their first bout at WrestleMania 28 last year was billed as a "Once in a Lifetime" encounter.

As if.

But how did we get to this point? Thankfully, WWE.com has released a sweet little infographic detailing the year-long process. Check it out:
