Will WWE Be Affected By The Rock’s Latest Movie Role?, Diva Added To NXT Roster, Michael Tarver Speaks

– With Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson securing the lead role for the Brett Ratner-directed action film Hercules, and production kicking off in “early 2013,” it has been speculated that his WWE involvement in the weeks leading up to WrestleMania 29 may be affected. However, the word among WWE circles is that organization officials are not expecting his filming commitments to impact his dates.

– The official website of NXT Wrestling has added Sasha Banks to its Divas roster.

Banks, formerly known as Mercedes KV, is a 20-year-old New England-based women’s wrestler. She recently debuted in WWE’s developmental program after impressing company officials at a talent evaluation session in June—resulting in a contract.

– Bill Apter recently spoke to former WWE Superstar Michael Tarver, who addressed his current endeavors, hopes for the future, time with the Nexus, and more.

    As much as I like Rock’s cameos in WWE (can’t really call it anything else), these huge contracts for virtually no appearances should not be granted. Use that money in development and creative so you can ensure a better product going forward.

    I don’t think Rock should become WWE champion again. Have him wrestle his matches at the royal rumble and ‘Mania and leave it at that.

      Finally. Somebody with the same idea as mine. Maybe it’s because I’m a happy member of the Cenanation, but I just can’t stand the Rock. He gets paid a huge sum of money just by showing up for twenty minutes. Use the money for the developmental and screw the Rock.

        You sound hurt.

          Why are you pretending to be cool with that shitty ghetto language you call english. Anyone else can vouch for this by clicking your name. Who is going to take your seriously or respect you when you talk like punk ass bitch? Sterotypical “nigggaaa”.. Punk.

  • BrickHouse

    Why would Rock even get involved with anything else during that time period anyway? He should have kept his schedule clean during that time for those obvious reasons…

      Rock has worked hard to get where he is right now in Hollywood. It’s unfair to ask him to turn down roles.

      He’s not breaking his committments to WWE and is still scheduled to wrestle at the Rumble and WrestleMania. If he can make it work, then I don’t see a problem with it.

      • RyanStewart2007

        Agreed. If undertaker can do it, so can he.

      • Jason

        Brick is actually right, there’s actually no need for Rock to have any Hollywood projects during Jan – April since that’s the WM season. He doesn’t have to turn down roles, but he should in fact keep those months free of projects other than WWE to ensure that he’s completely available at all times and contributes more to shows until WM.

    But he’s never going away. Remember. Screw The Rock. Cena was right.

  • Chris

    They should have a legends title, where its only defended at Summer Slam and Wrestlemania. Only for those with a legends contract. Taker, Rock, HHH, Austin, etc.

  • morrisonfanone

    Good. Lord knows they need female wrestlers. Good ones too. They need women that were like Chyna that weren’t afraid to wrestle men.

    unrelated but…is anyone else getting the problem where the Disqus comments are coming up on the wrong article (i.e. say there was one posted today there’d be comments from another article that was posted days ago)?…I’ve been getting it since yesterday and I can’t reply to that many comments because of it (I could only reply to like 2 comments because of it)…=/
