Wrestling Reporter Addresses Report After The Rock Calls It “Complete Horsesh*t”

According to a recent SEScoops.com report, some WWE talent feels like there is a double standard because of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s profane social media promos.

Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com provided an update on the story, while a Twitter/X account shared a summary of Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

“TKO would like the Rock to follow (and set a good example) it’s guidelines of TV-PG product. However, many feel the double standards of the Vince McMahon Era are back.”

The Rock responded to @wrestlelamia by writing “this story is complete horsesh*t.”

When asked, Meltzer clarified the story on Twitter/X:

“First of all I never said TKO wanted him to change anything. I wrote that because he’s The Rock he can do what he wants. You always cater to people of that level whether in wrestling or other endeavors. Somehow that was changed in translation to something me or the other reporter who had the basic same story both never said.”

“I’m sure he wouldn’t like what some talent said for the story, but other talent have said similar elsewhere. That said, we’ve also constantly pointed out his value at the box office and for company perception, in ways a lot of people don’t consider such as him being there engages a lot of heavy hitters who wouldn’t engage in WWE business otherwise and has to greatly help in making deals and sponsorships. A lot of people don’t get this aspect of business and you can’t overstate his value,which is why he got a $30M deal.”
