WWE icon and Hollywood star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson delighted fans in Memphis, TN, with a special Rock Concert on SmackDown. The Brahma Bull, known for his charisma and wit, returned to the city where he kickstarted his wrestling journey in the 90s. During the concert, he humorously roasted Cody Rhodes, Seth Rollins, and their supporters, playfully dubbed the “Cody Crybabies.”

The highly anticipated segment, initially planned for one slot, exceeded its time as The Rock charmed the audience with his banter and performance. Despite the extended duration, WWE had prepared for the possibility of Johnson going over time. Backstage officials foresaw the segment running longer than anticipated, allowing flexibility in the show’s schedule to accommodate the electrifying Rock Concert.

A strategic move by WWE placed The Rock at the beginning of the show, enabling adjustments to the program as needed throughout the night. This positioning granted Johnson the freedom to deliver a charming performance both for the live audience and viewers tuning in from home. The Rock’s presence added a unique energy to the episode of SmackDown, setting the tone for an exciting evening of entertainment.

During his recent appearance on SmackDown, Dwayne Johnson revealed a new moniker for himself – “The Final Boss.” This title caught the attention of wrestling veteran Dutch Mantell, who discussed it on Wrestling’s Smack Talk podcast. Mantell praised the choice, highlighting how it reflected Johnson’s authoritative role within the wrestling narrative, particularly as the boss of Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins.

Mantell commended The Rock for openly acknowledging his position in the company, emphasizing the value of transparency in storytelling. By incorporating the “Final Boss” persona into his promo, Johnson injected a sense of realism and depth into the ongoing storyline, enhancing its intrigue and appeal to fans. The evolution of Johnson’s character on SmackDown added a fresh dynamic to the show, charming audiences and sparking discussions within the wrestling community.
