The Rock is doing everything besides wrestling,” a fan commented while referencing the canceled future WrestleMania match.

While Johnson is still recovering from almost losing his mother, a user started judging him for his appearance at the Grammy’s: “man’s family is in shambles and he’s doing side missions at the Grammy’s.

People are already calling him out for not showing up to fight Roman Reigns: “This is the reason you are not showing your face in the squared circle avoiding your little big cousin?

Bro dipped on his cousin to go rizz up Adele,” commented a fan while throwing shade at the Hollywood celebrity for having a life.

Some fans are in the highest degree of sarcasm, as they call out ‘The Rock’ by saying, “The Rock finally got to meet Adele.”

This man’s family is being torn apart, and he’s at the mf Grammy’s,” more judgment for the wrestling celebrity.

Rock doing side quests,” wrote an upset wrestling fan.

Will fans ever get to see ‘The Rock’ fighting ‘The Tribal Chief’?

Very few fans actually know that the two talented heavyweight wrestlers are actually related. The relationship is not just bound to the two, but is a familial one. Both of their grandfathers were close friends and ‘blood brothers’. This resulted in both the wrestlers being called ‘cousins’. Even though this does not typically fit the storyline that the fans would want, the relationship cannot be ignored.
