TNA Founder Headed to Japan

TNA co-founder Jeff Jarrett is heading to Tokyo, Japan on October 6th for a Wrestle-1 event, after company founder Keiji Mutoh (aka The Great Mutah) met with TNA Wrestling officials earlier this summer to discuss a potential talent exchange. 

Batista Sees Box Office Success

Vin Diesel and former WWE Superstar Batista found success at the box office this weekend, with Riddick leading the pack on a very quiet weekend. The film is estimated to earn $18.7 million following its debut on Friday. Given the numbers, this was a decent time to release Riddick – the third film in its series – as very few big name Hollywood films are scheduled to debut in the coming weeks.
