Brian Gewirtz addresses claim that The Rock is holding the WWE Wrestlemania 40 documentary “hostage”

The WWE Wrestlemania 40 documentary was scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, April 10th but the project ended up being delayed. According to, it’s believed by some that the documentary is waiting for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s final approval before officially being released.

While speaking on The Masked Man Show, Seven Bucks SVP Brian Gewirtz addressed the rumors…

“Believe it or not, there is an awesome (documentary). The Rock isn’t holding hostage until he has approval of every frame. I think there was an error in terms of promoting it so soon because it wasn’t ready to come out. That was an error that was made. This is a doc that went from 11 minutes to 45 minutes and now it’s over an hour. It’s pretty awesome. It will be coming out, in some form, pretty soon, is my understanding.” (quote courtesy of Jeremy Lambert)
