WRESTLEMANIA 40 PRESS EVENT: Chaos at WrestleMania press conference as The Rock slaps Cody Rhodes

Posted on 2/09/124 by Colin Vassallo

Tempers flared big time at the WrestleMania 40 press
conference as a very polarizing crowd witnessed some crazy
stuff on the stage.

Roman Reigns said that it was his choice now to select an
opponent at WrestleMania and Reigns selected The Rock. The
Rock came out to a very divided crowd and brought up their
family tree, and mentioned how his grandfather and Roman’s
grandfather made a pact.

The two shook hands as they stood across each other but Cody
Rhodes came out and said this is all bullshit. Cody told
Reigns that he won the Royal Rumble, so he chooses who he
faces, and he made up his mind, and wants to face Reigns at

Reigns told Cody that he’s stupid and irrelevant just like
his father so Cody fought back, saying that if his
grandfather or The Rock’s grandfather was here they would be
ashamed of Reigns.

The Rock then entered the frame and said that if he keeps
badmouthing the family, then they have a problem, and
slapped the hell out of Cody.

A brawl started as Seth Rollins joined Cody while WWE
officials including Triple H, Nick Aldis, and Adam Pearce
tried to calm things down. Rollins told both Reigns and Rock
to f*ck off as he was being pushed to the back.

Meanwhile, after the whole circus was over, Triple H was
being interviewed backstage and Rock and Reigns showed up
and told Triple H to “fix it” or they will.

“Have him talk shit about our family and that’s what
happens,” The Rock told Triple H.

“It was out of line, you know it,” Triple H replied, before
The Rock told him that if Cody does it again, he’ll “slap
the f*cking teeth out of his mouth!”
