Like he said, (Storyline wise) The Rock's life will continue out side and inside a little of the WWE, but John Cena will have to live with this loss. It is the first time he really had this look of disbelief on his face like "What now?"
If you really look into it, when was the last time Cena lost a PPV match clean? I mean clean? It has been years, I mean form a character stand point, even when he loses you get that feeling that he would have won if it wasn't for outside circumstances, even with CM Punk, you get the feeling that CM Punk can beat Cena and Cena at some point can beat Punk too, same goes with Orton.
So this is kind of the first time Cena has been put down for real, the first time he couldn't overcome the odds at all, in the end if you look at the match, he got cocky and he lost because of it, he believed his own hype for the first time and lost.
So what now? In the end, this story is not about The Rock, it will be about John Cena and him dealing with the ghost of the defeat and the very first time he was put down for real, which probably will end by WM 29 when he gets his win back from the Rock.
