The Rock Responds to Bloody Beatdown He Gave Cody Rhodes at Last Week’s RAW Show

Monday’s WWE RAW show featured Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson responding to the bloody beatdown he gave to Cody Rhodes at last week’s show.

At the start of the show, RAW commentator Michael Cole stated that Rhodes was not medically cleared to attend tonight’s show.

The Rock came out to the ring and talked about the beating he gave to Rhodes last week busting him open. The Rock stated that he did what he said he would do and put it on the belt but the only thing missing were the tears from Mama Rhodes. The Rock also stated that he is a man of his word and whispered to Rhodes last week that he would make him bleed. The Rock stated that he kept his word and the Cody Crybabies did not like that they made their hero bleed. After some more insults directed towards the “Cody Crybabies”, The Rock stated that there were some online reactions that made him stop in his tracks, which led to video clips shown of children crying over Rock’s attack on Rhodes. After some more words, The Rock stated that he wanted parents to their their kids in front of the TV since Uncle Rock has a message for them. The Rock stated that “there are moments in life when a man has got to do what a man has got to do. There are moments in life when people talk shit that shouldn’t talk shit. The Rock has to beat that punk ass down over and over again.”

After some more words by The Rock claiming that pro wrestling is cool again and WWE’s ratings have skyrocketed because of him and tonight’s show setting the largest gate record in the history of WWE RAW, The Rock stated that he did not come alone. This led to The Bloodline’s music playing and Roman Reigns coming out to the ring with the rest of The Bloodline.

Paul Heyman gave a microphone to Reigns who gave his usual “acknowledge me” routine and talked about his recent A&E Biography episode. Reigns proceed to talk about him being here to acknowledge his family and warned the crowd if they continue with their “Yeet” chants, he will leave leading to more “Yeet” chants in return by the crowd. Reigns then told the Rock that he apologizes to him for the idiots because they are distracting him. Reigns then told the crowd to shut their mouths and proceeded to thank his cousin because this is going to be the easiest WrestleMania of his life. After some more words about their upcoming tag team match at WrestleMania and claiming he will have his way with Cody on Night 2, Reigns thanked Rock again for going above and beyond like he normally does over that beating he gave to Rhodes. Reigns stated that Rock puts his family above all just like he does and claimed that is how you lead. Reigns then proceeded to insult Rhodes again stating that he is not fit to wear these shoes and Rhodes is just a politician. Reigns then stated that when they were starting to make wrestling cool again in 2020, Rhodes was somewhere else doing nothing as a dig towards AEW.

After some more words about Reigns claiming that Rhodes can’t take him off the mountaintop because this is their mountain, Reigns proceeded to fumble his lines messing up the cue for Seth Rollin’s music to interrupt him.

Rollins then came out from the crowd and talked about how The Bloodline are idiots if they think he was just going to walk into that ambush after what they did to Rhodes last week. Rollins stated that if The Bloodline wants to do that to him, then they have to come to him and fight the whole city of Brooklyn. After some more words, Rollins first challenged The Rock to a match for tonight’s main event before claiming the “old DJ” doesn’t have the balls to do so. Rollins then issued a challenge to Reigns stating maybe The Tribal Chief has grown a set of balls in the last few years unlike The Rock. Rollins then stated that it doesn’t matter who he faces nor even the stipulation leading to Solo Sikoa interrupting stating that he will face Rollins instead. The Rock responded stating that this will be held under Bloodline Rules, which means anything goes.
