What Happened with Jericho and Ambrose After WWE Raw Went Off the Air?
After WWE Raw went off the air last night, Chris Jericho continued to collect the pieces of his torn apart jacket, then demanded a microphone. He proceeded to rip the fans and rip Omaha, saying he is glad he gets to leave a city that smells so bad. He added that his jacket will be ok as his dad is a “TV repairman”, but he demanded that Dean Ambrose come down and apologize to him.
This prompted Ambrose to come out, and Jericho told him he owes him $15,000 for the ruined jacket and wants an apologize from him because he’s a “stupid idiot”. Ambrose apologizes then goes to shake Jericho’s hand. When Jericho accepts the hand shake Ambrose calls him a “stupid idiot” then hits him with Dirty Deeds to send the crowd home happy.

LION FORGE COMICS AND STONE VILLAGE PARTNER ON ANDRE THE GIANT BIOPIC
Los Angeles, CA – Lion Forge Comics and producers Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell have partnered to develop a feature film about the life of legendary pro wrestler Andre “the Giant” Roussimoff, based on the authorized graphic novel biography published last year, Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven. Roussimoff’s daughter Robin Christensen-Roussimoff will consult on the film and assigned the exclusive rights for the biography to the producers.
“Andre the Giant rode the wave of the rise of wrestling in America, while suffering from the painful health condition of gigantism; there’s an Elephant Man story here,” Steindorff said.
Lion Forge CEO David Steward II agreed, saying, “As a lifelong wrestling fan, I can say with conviction that no one was bigger than Andre. His presence and charisma were so powerful, and you could tell there was much more to him under the surface of his ring persona. It’s been an amazing experience telling that story in the book with Robin’s help. With all the spectacle, action, and emotion there on the page, a feature film just made perfect sense.”
Written by Eisner Award-nominated writer Brandon Easton and illustrated by Denis Medri, Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven was nominated for the Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity and three Glyph Awards. It recounts the famed wrestler’s life from his earliest days working on the family farm in France along with the rise of professional wrestling itself, from a global circuit of underground matches to the global phenomenon it is today, due in large part to Andre the Giant’s celebrity. It is being republished in a new edition this month.
Steward and Lion Forge CCO Carl Reed will produce with Steindorff and Russell of Stone Village Productions, with Joel Falderon as a co-producer and Barry Alexander as an associate producer. Jimmy Thomas will executive produce
“I’m really excited to watch this story come to life on the big screen,” Robin Christensen-Roussimoff said. “It’s been a labor of love for everyone involved, and we’re really looking forward to making it available to a larger audience.”
