The Rock is back for WrestleMania 40 and he is cutting lengthy promos on both social media and on TV, to ensure WWE gets the maximum mainstream media coverage ahead of the biggest show of the year.

The People’s Champion maintains his Attitude Era persona and doesn’t care about WWE’s PG rating.

He openly drops F bombs during his social media promos and he even gets to say stuff on TV that other WWE wrestlers aren’t allowed to say.

WWE higher-ups sent out a memo a few weeks ago to talent, reminding them that they need to stick to PG language, even on social media.

This has resulted in a lot of WWE wrestlers having an issue with the special treatment The Great One is getting.

However, Cody Rhodes cut a non-PG promo on this week’s RAW, where he said The Rock has little d*ck syndrome.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Cody was given permission to cut this promo, as they felt he needed to do it in order to fire back at The Rock ahead of their WrestleMania 40 program.

With that being said, Eric Bischoff has warned WWE about not letting everyone cut these type of promos, or else they won’t mean much.

Here’s what the former WCW President said on the Strictly Business podcast:

“They have (been entertaining), and I agree with you. I would love to see us get away from [scripted promos]. When I say us, I don’t mean content-wise as much.

It’s not like — I mean, the kind of language that we’re talking about, the kind of stuff that Rock has been saying, particularly in social media. If all of a sudden everybody’s doing it, it won’t matter anymore. And then what do you have? You have to be careful, and I want to believe that that’s what WWE is trying to do.

They’re not saying ‘No, never, you’re never going to be able to do it.’ I am hoping that they’re looking at this particular situation… Yes, there’s some latitude because after all, it is The Rock.

It is Dwayne Johnson, there’s going to be some latitude there, folks. Just like there has been with every top talent in every company in the world, whether it’s a television company, movie company, whatever.

Your top talent is going to be able to get latitude that a lot of other talents aren’t. That’s just a fact of life.”
