The Rock’s current heel persona expertly merges his Hollywood charm with the attitude he showcased in the late 90s, captivating fans with his dynamic character. The Rock has been cussing regularly on social media and it appears WWE talent feel Vince McMahon’s era of double standards is back after The Rock’s return.

One of the biggest changes since The Rock came back to WWE was the fact that he has been openly cussing on social media with his promos, which has surprised fans. Even Cody Rhodes ended up cutting a very expletive-laden promo on RAW this week for good measure.

According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was reported that some talent in WWE feel that the era of Vince McMahon’s double standards when it came to pushing just handpicked stars has come back after The Rock’s return.

One person noted that there was a feeling that the era of Vince McMahon’s double standards for his handpicked stars and for everyone else was over, and then The Rock shows up and it’s exactly the same.


FOX’s tactics for censoring The Rock were also revealed. We have also provided clarification on The Rock’s segment running longer than expected last week on SmackDown. Nonetheless, the feeling of double standards might not end anytime soon.
