A faction of fans has expressed their discontent with The Rock’s WWE comeback in an unsettling manner.

The Rock has been met with substantial backlash for securing Cody Rhodes’ spot at WrestleMania 40, where he is slated to clash with the reigning Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.

The announcement of Rock vs. Reigns is set to be made this Thursday at the WrestleMania Kickoff event. This pivotal match was an integral component of The Rock’s agreement upon joining the TKO Board of Directors, fulfilling a longstanding aspiration held by both The Rock and the company.

As previously detailed, WWE is actively monitoring the tide of negative feedback stemming from fans in response to this development. Notably, the video featuring the full segment on WWE’s YouTube channel has earned the dubious distinction of becoming the most disliked video in the channel’s history.


In an even more disconcerting twist, The Rock’s own daughter, NXT General Manager Ava, has come forward to reveal that she has been subjected to death threats from certain fans due to the ongoing situation on social media platforms.

Currently, there’s a noticeable surge in assertive pro-Cody remarks on social media. Whenever The Rock or WWE shares posts on Instagram, the comment section is inundated with demands for him to grant Cody rematch. As previously noted, the WrestleMania situation is very unlikely to alter unless The Rock withdraws his commitment.

In the wake of The Rock’s WWE comeback and the controversy surrounding his match with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40, it is essential to remember that while passionate discussions and debates are an integral part of the wrestling world, they should never cross the line into threats or harassment.
