The Rock’s New NBC Show, Trish On Magazine Cover, New FCW Star

Published On 08/25/2011 | By Staff | News

– Earlier this week it was announced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and television/Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer will be working with NBC to create a new drama series based on the professional wrestling industry during the 1980’s. To follow up on that story – the pilot that will be filmed will be a “put pilot” – which means NBC has contractually agreed to air at least the pilot once it is produced. Typically, a show getting a ‘put pilot’ is a strong indication the show will be picked up for a full season.

The Rock wrote the following on Twitter about the show on Wednesday night:

“Kickin’ Ass! Excited to partner up w @BruckheimerJB & @NBC to create 1980’s wrestling TV drama.”

– WWE has signed Sterling James Keenan (real name Matthew Polinsky from Pittsburgh, PA) to a developmental contract. He’s been working in FCW since last week.

– Wade Barrett beat WWE developmental wrestler Bo Rotundo in a dark match at Tuesday’s SmackDown taping in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

– Former WWE diva Trish Stratus recently did a photo shoot for Sweat Equity Magazine. Trish is featured on the over of the ‘Fall 2011’ edition of the magazine.
