During an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson addressed fan backlash over him seemingly taking Cody Rhodes’ spot against Roman Reigns at WWE Wrestlemania 40…

“I expected, we expected it because it’s right there & you go back & again you like to think ‘Hey I got my finger on the pulse’, we all try to keep the finger on the pulse, ultimately what the fans want & what they’re saying & often times, in sports, entertainment, anywhere, there’s a wave of noise that happens right out of the gate, that you just wanna pause for a second, let’s not make any rash decisions, let’s wait & see how it all shakes out & see what happens from there so just a matter of waiting, so now… was not surprised at it, did expect it but here’s the fun part. Love Cody, love his passionate fans, then there’s the other passionate Cody fans & their called ‘Cody crybabies’, these are grown ass men, ‘Cody’s gotta finish his story’, it’s like..wait a second hold on, ‘hey dad you wanna go outside & play catch w/me?! Not now Cody’s gotta finish his story & I’m upset.’ Wife comes in ‘hey honey you wanna go have sex, ‘not now Cody’s gotta finish his story!’”

“The Rock says this, those Cody crybabies, the ones for every 10 tweets, they’re shoving a Chicken McNugget in their mouth, every 20 tweets, they’re shoving 2 McNuggets up their ass. All you gotta do is sit back, know your role, shut your mouth & enjoy the ride that The Rock is gonna take your candy asses on. So hashtag that. Hashtag shut your b*tch asses up. Hashtag Cody Crybabies. Yeah!”

“At the end of the day, I know it, you know it, we know it, Roman knows it, Cody knows it, his fans know it, that at the end of the day, The Rock vs Roman Reigns is the, capital T, capital H, capital E, biggest main event in the history of #WrestleMania, The Rock & Roman Reigns & I’ll end it there, they all know it.” (quote courtesy of Twitter/X account @WrestleOps)
