The recent shift of The Rock into a heel persona has electrified WWE programming, infusing it with a fresh and thrilling energy. This transformation seamlessly combines The Rock’s legendary Hollywood charisma with the edgy attitude reminiscent of his late 90s character. His recent appearance on RAW has reverberated across the wrestling world, especially due to his surprising confrontation with Cody Rhodes. Amidst this heightened excitement, WWE’s policy on blood usage has garnered attention with recent revelations.

Regarding the reintroduction of blood in WWE, Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was reported that Dwayne Johnson will have considerable freedom to pursue his creative vision. As he pushes boundaries, it’s possible that other top stars may have more leeway with their language as well.

However, it’s important to note that WWE is no longer solely under Vince McMahon’s control. Moving forward, the use of blood will be limited, with the company opting not to adopt a more liberal approach akin to AEW’s usage of blood in their programming.

“As far as what it all means, we were told that Dwayne Johnson as always will get to do pretty much what he wants. The further he pushes, it’s likely the further at least some of the top stars can with language. With blood, the key is that this is no longer Vince McMahon’s company. We were told that going forward it will be used very rarely. There are no plans to turn it into AEW where it’s used more liberally.”


Ringside News also exclusively reported the key figures responsible for The Rock and Cody Rhodes’ segment. The surprising display of aggression by The Rock towards Cody Rhodes has left fans in a state of disbelief, as the intense confrontation between the two continues to echo throughout the wrestling world. As their rivalry intensifies, anticipation for their anticipated showdown at WrestleMania 40 has reached unprecedented levels.
