Did The Rock just lose credibility with his Roman Reigns statement? Fans are calling him a liar!

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson returned to the WWE earlier this year to join the Board of Directors of TKO Group Holdings. In parallel to that, the legend also emerged as a centerpiece in the plans for WrestleMania XL. There, he was initially scheduled to fight Roman Reigns for the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship. It was a dream match for many fans. However, the plans went for a toss as it suffered a last-minute change. Cody Rhodes was supported by a large sector of the fans in his goal of finishing his story. The decision to remove Rhodes from the title picture to the detriment of The Rock generated a climate of unrest and opposition.

And this led the company to radically change its plans. This resulted in a heel turn from the legend, ultimately becoming Road to WrestleMania’s highlight. Now, months after finishing his stint in WWE, and with Cody Rhodes finally the Universal Champion, the Brahma Bull has opened up on what went on behind the scenes after he was removed as the principal rival to Roman Reigns. In the latest WrestleMania XL: Behind the Curtain documentary, the Rock has made a major claim that has fans calling him a liar.

The initial idea that The Rock’s team pitched for the Showcase of the Immortals revolved around the American Nightmare suffering an injury. Thus, getting him out of the title picture. And this would lead the Brahma Bull to take his place. Being the babyface against the Tribal Chief. In the documentary, The Rock claimed that when Cody Rhodes’ fans started the #WeWantCody movement; he did not want to upset any fans.
