The Rock Refutes False Claims Regarding TKO's Alleged Request for WWE TV-PG Compliance

The man himself has stepped in to address the circulating story regarding The Rock and the language used in his promos over the past week.

According to previous reports from SEScoops and Dave Meltzer, there has been significant discussion both within and outside of WWE regarding a perceived double standard in allowing The Rock to use adult language in his promos upon his return to television.

Despite expectations that the transition of leadership from Vince McMahon to Triple H might bring about a change in this regard, recent developments have shown otherwise. A memo sent out to talent by Nick Khan, Triple H, and Dan Ventrelle, the Executive Vice President of Talent, reiterated WWE’s commitment to a TV-PG rating and emphasized the prohibition of cursing on TV or social media. However, The Rock’s return saw him diverging from these guidelines.

Amidst this backdrop, there were suggestions that, given TKO’s management’s desire for WWE to adhere to a TV-PG format and considering The Rock’s position on the board, he should be setting an example by following these rules. Notably, WWE allowed Cody Rhodes to push boundaries with his promo on Raw, furthering his program leading up to WrestleMania 40.

The Rock took to Twitter overnight to address the report suggesting that TKO wanted him to adhere to the TV-PG guidelines as an example. However, it’s important to note that the tweet from the Wrestlelamia account may not fully align with Dave Meltzer’s original report.
