The WWE community is buzzing with mixed emotions regarding Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s recent comeback to the organization. Some fans have expressed discontent, particularly directed at the wrestling star’s daughter, who revealed receiving death threats amidst the controversy.
For those not up to date with the unfolding drama in the WWE, here’s a quick recap:
Speculation arose that The Rock might make a comeback at the Royal Rumble in January. However, his absence left fans surprised, especially since Cody Rhodes earned the opportunity to challenge Roman Reigns for the Wrestlemania main event.
The storyline, brewing for two years, was set for a climax, but things took an unexpected turn when The Rock interrupted Friday Night Smackdown to announce his own match against Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship belt at Wrestlemania.
This twist disappointed fans eagerly anticipating Rhodes’ narrative conclusion, particularly given reports suggesting The Rock’s return was influenced by his position on the WWE’s parent company’s board of directors.
While most wrestling enthusiasts have handled this plot twist with grace, some have taken their dissatisfaction too far, targeting Johnson’s daughter, Simone, also known as “Ava,” who serves as the NXT General Manager.
Simone took to social media on Monday, pleading to be excluded from the discussion surrounding her father’s storyline, revealing she’s received death threats from individuals taking the situation too seriously.
Following her statements, she deactivated her Twitter account, understandably finding the situation overwhelming.
