The Rock Fires Back To False Information Following WWE WrestleMania Press Conference

The Rock Fires Back To False Information Following WWE WrestleMania Press Conference – The Rock didn’t take someone trying to spread clear false information about his efforts with the Maui Relief fund by using footage of the former WWE champion at the WrestleMania Kickoff press conference this past Thursday.

At the presser, Cody Rhodes announced he would challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 40. It had been expected that WWE would announce The Rock vs. Reigns at the event instead, which is still planned, while Rhodes had been expected to challenge World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.

The Rock was heavily booed as he slowly turned heel at the press conference amid the pushback from fans regarding him taking Rhodes’ spot. It was a widely praised performance in the storyline arc.

Unfortunately, someone tried to claim that fans were booing The Rock and demanding that he follow through with his promise with the aid for Maui, something set up to support the victims of the Maui fires.

He announced the fund with Oprah Winfrey. He wrote the following on Twitter/X:

I typically refrain from responding to toxic, false clickbait garbage like this because I hate dignifying bullshit with a response, but when you use Hawaii’s tragic events to draw attention to yourself I won’t stay quiet.

This moment you’re referring to is from our @WWE press conference this past Thursday where I turned “heel” – wrestling parlance for bad guy. I’m playing it up with our crowd as they boo. It’s what we do in our WWE universe, and we all love every second of it.

For the record:
Our People’s Fund of Maui has already DELIVERED over $50 MILLION DOLLARS to over 8,000 survivors who were affected by the fires, and I’m grateful to the bone that we’ve been the primary funders.

Hawaii is where I grew up, where I raise my children throughout the year and where my ancestors are buried. These are my Polynesian people and these are OUR American people. You can’t imagine how much they are still struggling daily to put their lives back together and take care of each other. Our Poly American people are as resilient as people come, and they will raise and get back on their feet.

Nick, instead of posting bullshit like this that you know is false – I encourage you to post something positive for Hawaii, for our Polynesian American people. Or actually take positive action and come to Hawaii to help out in an uplifting way.
I’m in Hawaii now, and I guarantee you, you’ll get great content that can actually make a difference in people’s lives.

Let’s put our energy and our online platforms into lifting people up. Acknowledging the good things that people do. Raising awareness for the suffering in ways that can effectively help. It takes so much effort to be negative, and create and spread bullshit – but when you spread positivity, kindness, and lead by example you can really impact lives.

I’m sorry to all our Poly/Hawaiian ohana of Maui, for shining light on this toxicity as you struggle through tough times – I always try to be Na’au Pono.
Love U.
