– During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, former WWE and ECW Superstar Tommy Dreamer discussed the fan outrage over The Rock potentially replacing Cody Rhodes against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40. This in turn led to Cody Rhodes opting to face Reigns at WrestleMania 40, followed by The Rock turning heel once again and joining The Bloodline and Roman Reigns. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Tommy Dreamer on how The Rock originally got over after his initial failed babyface run: “If I can quote a famous philosopher: ‘It doesn’t matter what you think. Know your role and shut your hole.’ If you think about how Rocky Maivia got over, he listened to the crowd. And they were pushing him as this mega, mega babyface.”

On the fans being upset about the idea of The Rock replacing Cody Rhodes: “Your audience was mad at that decision. It’s all placement and timing. That’s why I say, ‘Know your role.'”
