WWE has found itself in hot waters again. And no, backstage controversies don’t play a part in this recent fiasco. Instead, it concerns a booking decision. As Cody Rhodes walked out of the ring after allowing The Rock to fight Roman Reigns instead, it felt as if he wasn’t just walking out of the ring but also walking out of the opportunity to fulfill his father’s dream of being a WWE champion and completing his story. It felt as if he walked out on the hopes of the fans who rallied to his support for the past two years. And this time, their patience has run out.

Fans are already booing loudly in arenas, speaking against the decision on social media, and even giving the WWE their most disliked video on YouTube.

Dwayne Johnson has always maintained a spotless public image and loves to be a gentle giant. There is a reason why he is called ‘The People’s Champion’. But what would happen if people rallied against him instead? That is something the ‘Brahma Bull ‘would not want at all. Johnson has been very particular about his PR, and siding with the WWE on such a booking that goes against the wishes of the fans might be something he would discuss with Triple H and others around him.

So it wouldn’t be shocking to see if he decided to walk out of the match and give Cody Rhodes the chance to fight the Tribal Chief instead. That would work wonders for his public image and can also be used as an angle. Since Reigns enjoys the numbers advantage with Sikoa and Jimmy Uso by his side, The Rock can help the American Nightmare win the title by being on his side and fighting off the other members of The Bloodline when they try to interfere.
