The Rock stormed onto Friday Night SmackDown with a clear objective – to completely dismantle Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. He cut a lengthy promo on the show, and it appears new footage has revealed a cameraman urging The Rock to finish his promo quickly.

During the latest episode of SmackDown, highly anticipated confrontation unfolded between The Rock, Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, and Seth Rollins – their first meeting since the WrestleMania 40 kick-off press event in Las Vegas. After weeks of verbal sparring on WWE programming and social media, the momentous face-off occurred.

The scene was riveting as Cody and Seth made their way through the WWE Universe to the ring, where Rock and Roman stood ready. Cody Rhodes quickly addressed the situation, but The Rock interrupted, reflecting on the challenge’s stipulations. Seth Rollins interjected, claiming The Rock’s prime had passed and accepting the WrestleMania Night 1 match.

Unfazed, The People’s Champion reminded the duo of his authority and launched personal attacks at Cody, referring to him as a family mistake due to a 20-year age gap among Rhodes’ siblings. Rhodes would then slap The Rock for good measure as SmackDown went off the air.


As revealed by footage making rounds online, the camera crew could be seen desperately urging The Rock to finish his promo quickly and not go overtime like last week.

Ultimately, Cody Rhodes accepted The Rock’s challenge for match against him and Seth Rollins versus The Rock and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. The upcoming weeks will reveal how WWE continues to develop and book the feud between The Rock and Cody Rhodes leading up to WrestleMania 40.
