Former WWE writer Vince Russo believes that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may have lost a significant part of his fanbase due to his political comments and potential involvement in the presidential race. Russo highlighted that The Rock’s remarks about the Democratic party and Joe Biden might have sparked reactions from fans, creating divisions along political lines.
Russo suggested that The Rock’s involvement with political figures like Biden and Kamala Harris could have alienated a portion of the pro-wrestling fanbase, as political affiliations tend to create strong opinions and divisions. He emphasized that people often choose sides, and when a public figure aligns with a particular political stance, it can impact how they are perceived by different segments of the audience.
It’s important to note that opinions on political matters can vary widely, and public figures expressing political views may face both support and criticism from different segments of the population. The impact on someone’s popularity within a specific fanbase can be influenced by a variety of factors, including individual beliefs and values.
“I think the dude for doing some political things that really p*ssed a lot of people off. And bro you gotta understand, we got sides here bro. You are either on this side or you are on that side… When Rock is on there with Biden and Kamala (Harris), you got a whole other side that’s like, ‘Are you effing kidding me?'”
