As noted earlier, The Rock was scheduled to be confronted by Brock Lesnar on tonight’s Raw episode, however The Rock is no where to be found.

Raw’s original script was set to feature The Rock opening the show with a promo about losing the WWE title to John Cena. This promo would have led to Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman confronting Rock and laying him out, planting the seeds for a future pay-per-view bout between the two (rumored for WrestleMania 30).

With The Rock skipping out without notice, WWE had to re-write the show. A WWE source described the environment as “chaos backstage”.

Big Update on Why The Rock Skipped Out on Tonight’s Raw….

    Maybe Rock got annoyed about the fact WWE took the Brahma Bull logos off the belt.

  • CJWARE

    The Rock made his money used wwe and his fans and went bye bye. A big surprise there not.

  • CJWARE

    Wrestlemania this year give it a c rating, so predictable, I called every match right on cue.

    • Travelers2013

      I also got all of them right except for the Triple H one. I thought for sure Triple H was ready to pretty much focus on running the WWE and leave wrestling behind him.

  • Ernie Marin

    OMG, HOW WILL WE GET THE SHOW DONE WITHOUT THE ROCK, oh wait….the same way we’ve had for the past 10 years, with the next WORST thing, John Cena.

  • CJWARE

    The day hhh or anyone else will run wwe is when vince is dead.
