I recently had to replace a spoke on my rear wheel, without the new spoke the disc didn't rub, but now that i have it in the disc is rubbing like mad. I haven't trued the rim yet, will this fix the rubbing ?

I think somehow you bent your disc. Take it off, lay it down flat on something to check if it has become warped.

Or it could be your pistons are out of whack.

Or, if he had the wheel out of the droppouts to replace the spoke, it may not be back in just right. The spokes and the rim don't touch the disc, so they should have no effect.
