WWE News: The Rock calls out reporter for fake news
What's the story
In an interesting development earlier today, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson called out a news reporter for spreading lies and for posting an interview with the former WWE Champion that was completely fabricated.
In case you didn't know...
As the story goes, The Rock was accused of conducting an interview with The Daily Star, where he dragged the millennial generation into the mud by referring to the current generation as the "snowflake generation". As stated in the article, The Rock was quoted in saying:
“So many good people fought for freedom and equality - but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended.”
However, much like everything you see and hear throughout the world -- especially on the internet, not everything that is written or said is what it seems to be.
The heart of the matter
The Rock took to his Instagram handle as he posted a video in which he discussed the supposed article and "interview", that apparently never happened and was completely made up.
“The interview never took place. Never happened. Never said any of those words, Completely untrue. One hundred percent fabricated.”
The Rock is scheduled to attend the Sundance Film Festival to promote the independent film, "Fighting With My Family", a biopic covering the life of WWE Superstar Paige and her family, from the families humble beginnings and struggles to Paige's eventual rise to stardom in the WWE.
The Rock had previously been speculated to appear at the Royal Rumble as a surprise entrant, but there is no truth to the rumor at this time and is highly unlikely to occur due to The Rock's busy schedule.
