April 8 (UPI) -- John Cena has officially stripped Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. "The Rock," from his World Wrestling Entertainment title.

According to My Central Jersey, Cena went up against Johnson on Sunday during WrestleMania 29, the main event of the WWE championship, and came out victorious.

After the battle, which was a rematch from last year's event where Johnson took home the top title in the WWE, the long-time rivals hugged and put an end to the event.

The WWE said Sunday's show had been MetLife Stadium's all-time highest grossing event, earning $12.3 million from 80,676 guests.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who narrated the opening video package for the performance, thanked New York and New Jersey residents for their support following superstorm Sandy and commended WWE on their spectacle.

“On behalf of the great state of New Jersey, I want to thank all of the fans that came from around the world to beautiful MetLife Stadium for WrestleMania 29,” Christie said. “WWE put on a show like no other and electrified the capacity crowd.”
