From sexual trafficking to WrestleMania main events, the quick change in news cycle

News cycles, in today’s dynamic world, are inherently fleeting, marked by the constant influx and displacement of stories, ranging from natural disasters and conflicts to elections and scandals.

Last week, WWE faced a tumultuous period with the emergence of the Janel Grant lawsuit, casting a shadow over Vince McMahon and all of WWE. Media outlets and social media platforms were ablaze with discussions, overshadowing even the significant events like the Royal Rumble and a prominent Netflix deal that took place in the same week, not to mention the election of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to the TKO Board of Directors.

However, the nature of news cycles dictates that attention shifts swiftly. Whether intentional or coincidental, the spotlight now revolves around The Rock’s return and the removal of Cody Rhodes from the main event of night two at WrestleMania. The fans’ frustration no longer is towards Vince, Brock Lesnar, or anything that the Janel Grant lawsuit said, but is now towards the WrestleMania main event and the politics behind the change.

The negative publicity stemming from the Janel Grant lawsuit has temporarily taken a back seat as fans mobilize their voices to advocate for Cody Rhodes’ reinstatement in the main event.

The surprising negative reaction to Rock vs Roman is obviously not something that WWE anticipated, but they will take that any day of the week over sexual trafficking, assault, exploitation, abuse, and defacing stories.
