Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has finally addressed the “slap heard round the world.”
This weekend, the WWE legend took to Instagram to share a clip from the WrestleMania XL Kickoff press event of himself slapping Cody Rhodes.
In the post, The Rock shared the following statement:
I was born into this crazy world and I love every second of it.
It’s been decades since professional wrestling hyped up like this for WRESTLEMANIA and it’s become a rare air that we all breathe, and it’s really cool and exciting for us, as wrestlers, our company and most importantly – all our Fans.
Your hero did something stupid and he quickly learned what happens when you speak disrespectfully about our family.
Crossed and blurred lines – bring it on.
We don’t follow anyone’s brand.
The road to Wrestlemania begins…
