Last Friday was the opening for the new movie Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. One of the coming attractions before the film was for “Get Smart”, starring Steve Carell and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The former WWE champion was billed as “Dwayne Johnson” with no mention of his nickname. The movie opens June 20, 2008.
Monday’s New Years Eve RAW will focus around JBL’s return as well as the Triple H vs. Ric Flair retirement match. The show is being taped from Greensboro, North Carolina – the heart of “Flair Country”.
As noted last week, Florida Championship Wrestling trainer Steve Madison is gone from the company. The word that we are getting is that he had a blow up with lead trainer Steve Keirn which led to his departure.
Former Spirit Squad member Johnny Jeterâ<80><99>s name has been removed from the OVW roster. Despite the fact that he has been off of television, Jeter is still technically a member of the main roster therefore he is not required to go train in developmental like talent working under developmental contracts. WWE sent Jeter on some ECW/SmackDown house shows awhile back but have not used him since.
Nick Mylan sent this in: I was looking through this article at Time.com and they had the Top 10 crime news stories of 2007 and Chris Benoit made the list at Time.com. Thought it was interesting enough to let you guys know.
