Today is big day for wrestling history. First of all, it’s the 20th anniversary of D-Generation X, and the wrestling world has been celebrating the anniversary by throwing down crotch chops all day, but it seems that The Rock may have upstaged DX on their big day.
A few days ago The Rock shared a video on Instagram where he informed the world that he would be making some changes to his iconic Brahma Bull tattoo, and the world patiently waited for the reveal. Once the reveal finally arrived the internet exploded, because upon first glance it was clear that the iconic Brahma Bull tattoo that fans have become familiar with is gone forever.
When The Rock said he was going to update the tattoo, he wasn’t kidding. This new tattoo is crazy! Like, Crazzy Steve crazy to the point where you have to throw an extra z in there just to prove how crazy it is.
There’s no denying that the ink is impressive, but still, The Rock just changed a big part of wrestling history, and everyone has an opinion on it.
It seems a little silly to get so worked up over a tattoo, but some fans feel that the change is a sign that he’s trying to distance himself even more from his wrestling past.
From one side of the internet to the other, the response to the new tattoo has been mixed. The general consensus seems to be disbelief at this point, but like it or not it’s a change that we’re all going to have to get used to.
You can check out some of the reactions below, and be sure to sound off in the comments and let us know how you feel about The Great One’s new ink.
He ain't the rock no more just a bald headed dude named Dwayne https://t.co/DjEIoTEDU6

Seems to me The Rock is distancing himself further from his wrestling 'image'.

RIP The Rock's Brahma Bull tattoo. Which inspired such moments, like The Rock for some reason strapping Paul Bearer to a giant bull. pic.twitter.com/ymHhkQRTgW

I'm not sure why I've taken The Rock's decision to cover up his tattoo so personally but I have. How dare he.

I can't think of anyone as famous as The Rock covering up as iconic of a tattoo as the brahma bull.

The Rock covering up his bull tattoo is like when Cindy Crawford got her mole removed, imo.
