When a show is based on real-life people, fans of that particular show will undoubtedly want the actors to resemble real-life people as much as possible. However, that does not always happen and can cause outrage. This is exactly what happened with NBC’s ‘Young Rock’ after their most recent episode.
NBC’s “Young Rock” is a television series that centers around the life and career of professional wrestler and actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The show has generated mixed reactions from audiences, with some praising the show while others criticizing it.
One of the main areas of criticism has been the casting choices made for the series, with fans expressing their dissatisfaction with the casting choices on social media. Unfortunately, this trend might not be ending anytime soon either.
A picture of The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin’s characters having a beer on Young Rock has been making rounds on social media. Unsurprisingly, fans took to Twitter and dragged the show of how the characters looked.
NBC and The Rock did Undertaker soooo dirty
@TheEnemiesPE3 Taker when he first saw who’s playing him
@TheEnemiesPE3 “Well he’s a big guy with long dark hair…no one will even notice”
@TheEnemiesPE3 Casting director should be locked up.
@WrestlingNewsCo Stone Cold and the Undertaker from wish
Fans have had issues with the casting of the likes of Triple H, Jim Ross, and a few other WWE legends on ‘Young Rock.’ By the looks of it, the show will not be getting accurate representations of their characters anytime soon and fans will just have to accept that.
