NBC Declines The Rock’s Proposed Wrestling Pilot, Former WWE Star Appears In Domino’s Commercial, AJ


– NBC has decided against going forward with its commitment to a drama pilot about 1980s professional wrestling involving Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as an executive producer and Jerry Bruckheimer’s production company, reports PWInsider.com. The option for the series was not renewed last month. Since NBC purchased the series and guaranteed a pilot episode would air, the network is believed to have paid a penalty for dropping the project.

– Former WWE Superstar Paul London, a working actor, recently filmed a television commercial for Domino’s Pizza that will air regionally on the West Coast. London and his brother have been pitching a “sword and sorcery” style project in Hollywood.

WWE.com has published an article asking whether AJ Lee is fit to rule Raw following her in-ring meltdown on Monday’s show.

The article notes, “Although Vickie was clearly in the wrong for taking advantage of AJ’s vulnerability and striking Ms. Lee knowing full well there would be no retaliation, the Raw GM’s resultant in-ring meltdown no doubt raised more than a few eyebrows among members of both the WWE Universe and the WWE Board. Upon examining AJ Lee’s savage, chair-throwing tantrum, WWE.com asks the question: Is AJ truly the right choice to serve as Raw General Manager?”
