In the latest edition of Friday Night SmackDown, one of the most talked-about moments in recent years in WWE took place. Cody Rhodes had a face-to-face with Roman Reigns after winning the 2024 men’s Royal Rumble for the second year in a row. When it seemed like he was going to choose Reigns as his opponent at WrestleMania 40, ‘The American Nightmare’ decided against it and introduced Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as a better opponent for Reigns instead. Then Rhodes left the ring, and with it, the chances of him being the undisputed world champion went out as well. The Rock had a face-to-face with the Tribal Chief, hinting that the match between the two would happen at WrestleMania 40. However, the marquee matchup hasn’t generated the hype WWE thought it would. In fact, the bout has caused some criticism among the wrestling faithful.

With more than two million views and more than 200,000 dislikes in nine hours, that is four times more than the number of positive reactions to the video.
