• The Rock Responds To A Fan Tweeting About The Rock Not Being Called The First Black WWF Champion
With Kofi Kingston going after the WWE Championship on the Road to WrestleMania 35, a fan brought up the topic of The Rock not being called the first black WWF Champion.
Below is what the fan tweeted:
Cool, he identifies as Samoan in WWE and was booked that way after Nation days. Was never booked, proclaimed, or titled as First black champion. And hardcore wrestling fans don't name him as such as well. Thus nobody calls him a black champion. Anoa'i family background angle

Below is what The Rock replied:
Glad I came across this and I’ll give you guys some context & truth.
I identify as exactly what I am – both. Equally proud. Black/Samoan.
And my friend, let me expand your thoughts a bit here – I transcended race in wrestling so there was no “booked that way”. Thx guys
