More On Vince/Trump, Steve Blackman Update, & More

Ryan Clark


From James L: They air a segment called “the Skinnny” on ABC’s World News. It was a good piece on the Vince vs. Donald Wrestlemania match and even super imposed the hair piece over the anchor’s face, it looked very cool.

From Jmotaortega: The whole McMahon vs. Trump Wrestlemania match was mentioned on the Mike & Mike in the morning show this morning on ESPN 2. They discussed whether it was a good idea by Trump to do wrestling.

CNN, The Associated Press, Yahoo and MSN have all been reporting on the Vince vs. Trump angle.

WWE’s board of directors today approved the Company’s regular quarterly dividend of $0.24 per share on all Class A and Class B common stock. The record date for the dividend will be March 15, 2007, and the payment date will be March 26, 2007. For those of you not stock-savvy, for every WWE share you have, you will get 24 cents. Of course, its more money if your last name is McMahon. (Thanks to Colin Vassallo)

From BanesProphecy from imdb.com: Former WWE wrestler Steve Blackman aka “Cheese” is going to be playing Skeletor in the new “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” movie. That’s right, the guy who only had one scant moment of expression in the WWE, when he found Val Venis’s dildo in his weapon’s bag, is going to be acting. Strange choice, but since Skeletor’s face is an expressionless skull, I guess this could work. At least we know what kind of action to expect in the movie, martial arts. The even more surprising thing is that actor, writer, director and producer M. Night Shyamalan is also attached to the film, just not sure in what capacity.
