Alex Shelley To WWE Latest, The Rock’s Movie Pushed Back, RVD
* In an update on Alex Shelley to WWE, the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer is reporting Shelley has received phone calls from WWE. Shelley has not agreed a deal with the company as of yet. Prior to WWE calling Shelley, he was looking at working in Japan and possibly for Dragon Gate USA.
* It was announced today that Paramount’s big G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation movie starring “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson is being moved from this summer to a March 29, 2013 opening. The reason given for the delay is because the movie will be converted to 3D for bigger box office receipts. Word going round is that its being pushed back to protect it from the wake of The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man and Batman. Like this the movie can be released without obvious competition, which was likely a consideration.
* Former WWE Superstars John Morrison and Rob Van Dam are scheduled for a stand-up comedy gig on May 30 at the Jon Lovitz Club in Los Angeles at 8.30pm.
