John Cena has been crowned WWE Champion after beating The Rock in a top-of-the-bill clash at WWE Wrestlemania 29.

The 35 year old took the WWE's top honour for a record 11th time in front of a huge crowd at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey - and in front of an audience of millions on pay-per-view television.

As well as seeing Cena pin The Rock, aka movie star Dwayne Johnson, to take the title, the fans also witnessed former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar losing to Triple H and The Undertaker beating CM Punk in a bout hailed by many as the highlight of the night.

In other action, Team Hell No saw off the challenge of Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston to retain the WWE Tag Team Championship, and Alberto Del Rio defeated Jack Swagger to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.

And the night had got off to a scorching start with an exciting match which saw The Shield take down The Big Show, Randy Orton and Sheamus.

The other matches saw Fandango beat Chris Jericho and Mark Henry defeat Ryback.

WWE announced after the show that it had been the highest-grossing event in the company's history - earning an estimated $12.3 million.
