Cena/Rock: Three match series?

I saw this piece on DOT NET today:
There have been rumors of a three match series between John Cena and Rock for some time and this will only lead to more.
How should this series be booked? I'm no fantasy booker, but I am really stumped and here's why.
  • This year is in the Rock's hometown of Miami, FL
  • The Rock is making his triumphant return to WrestleMania
Why does this matter?  You really cannot or should not have the Rock lose in the WM 28 match.  The problem with that is, I don't think John Cena winning the next two is much more appealing.  Clearly though, Cena should win two out of three and definitely win the last one.  That only makes sense.

I suppose you have a questionable finish in the second one, but if it's a match at WrestleMania then that's also not terribly appealing.  I don't know, I am having trouble coming up with satisfying outcomes for all three matches.

I would be curious to see if any of you have some solid suggestions on how to do a three match series between these two.
