KOTR Competitor Update Inside, Backstage News On The Rock

Ryan Clark


WWE’s official site has a graphic promoting the King of the Ring tournament on next week’s three-hour Raw. The eight wrestlers featured on the graphic include Chris Jericho, Umaga, Shawn Michaels, CM Punk, Batista, Big Show, Triple H and MVP. Although, the preview for the King of the Ring also notes Mr. Kennedy and Finlay, so the wrestlers featured in the graphic likely aren’t final.

“Witch Mountain,” the movie The Rock is currently working on, will be released in March of next year. “Get Smart” will be out in June.

Reports circulated that wrestlers were upset with The Rock at the hall of fame ceremony because the left before Ric Flair’s speech. Apparently he rubbed some the wrong way by doing a lot of comedy before really getting into his speech. Reports also surfaced that The Rock was acting aloof backstage, but apparently those viewpoints came from those jealous with him and/or didn’t understand his circumstances. The Rock had to leave to return to filming “Witch Mountain” in Las Vegas the next morning.
