Terry Crews In Talks With WWE, Ex-Writer Responds To Stephanie Article, Jerry Lawler

– Actor Terry Crews revealed during a fan chat with Reddit.com that he has talked with WWE officials regarding a potential role.

“I’m talking to the WWE about doing some things,” Crews said. “I love the energy and excitement and the live component. It’s theater on a grand scale!”

Crews, who appears on the NBC reality program Stars Earn Stripes with WWE Diva Eve Torres, attended the WWE SummerSlam VIP Kick-Off Party at Beverly Hills Hotel two weeks ago. He also appeared in the 2008 movie Get Smart with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, which he acknowledged in the chat.

– Former WWE creative writer Seth Mates responded to an article published on PWMania.com suggesting that he is not a fan of Stephanie McMahon after denouncing a fan asking on Twitter whether a “Best of Stephanie McMahon” DVD release is long overdue. He wrote, “How does me joking that a twitter user is a buffoon for a silly dvd idea translate to me not being a fan of steph?”

– On Raw, Jerry Lawler took exception to CM Punk’s remark that he had defeated “a bunch of nobodies in Memphis” and gotten “into a slap fight with a Hollywood comedian.” The WWE Hall of Famer named the Legends he’d beaten in “The River City’s” Mid-South Coliseum, which WWE.com have profiled in an article.

– Beth Phoenix is featured in today’s “Superstar Spotlight” on WWE.com. The multi-time champion is currently taking a hiatus from the squared circle. She explained last Tuesday via Twitter, “Thank u for all of the support and respect while myself and my family grieves the loss of a loved one.”
