Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, involving The Rock and Bad Blood.

• The Rock’s recent return to WWE before WrestleMania 40, where he teamed up with Roman Reigns to face Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins, generated a lot of excitement. However, his return also stirred controversy, particularly regarding the delay of the WrestleMania 40 documentary. Former WWE star Matt Morgan speculated that the delay was intentional.

Initially, it was believed that the delay in releasing “WrestleMania XL: Behind the Curtain” was due to the extensive footage. However, Morgan claims The Rock was responsible for the delay. The documentary was eventually released on YouTube a few days ago.

On his Gigantic Pop podcast, Morgan described the documentary as “nothing special,” noting that it contained information already shared by Cody Rhodes, The Rock, and Triple H. He speculated that The Rock might have delayed the release to protect his image, possibly editing out footage of himself reacting negatively to being booed by fans. Morgan suggested that The Rock attempted to reshape the narrative to portray himself as the savior of WrestleMania:

“It was all stuff we heard Cody say, we’ve heard Hunter say, we’ve heard Rock say. There was no new news out of this. So, it tells me they waited almost 3 months because they were editing some of the other more like, some of the more sizzle component of it where I’m sure they had video footage of Rock coming back going like, ‘What the f**k, they’re booing me?! What?! What kinda sh*t is this?!’ Maybe, you know, that kinda stuff.

I know it sounds unprofessional but that’s what I was led to believe we’d see in this documentary of a butthurt Rock selling and he did not sell. He tries to spin it and act like he saved WrestleMania.”

• WWE is bringing back the classic pay-per-view event, Bad Blood, this October. A commercial featuring Cody Rhodes and Metro Boomin revealed that Bad Blood will return on October 5, 2024, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Bad Blood (known as Badd Blood: In Your House back then) was first held in October 1997 as part of the World Wrestling Federation’s In Your House series. It re-emerged in 2003 and 2004 as a RAW-exclusive event before being replaced by One Night Stand in 2005. The event is famous for introducing the Hell in a Cell match, which headlined all three years it was originally held.

Plans to revive Bad Blood in 2017 were scrapped in favor of Great Balls of Fire. However, the event is now officially set for a comeback, and there is a strong possibility that the Hell in a Cell match will return as well.
