WWE Studios Changes, Tyson Joke At HOF, NJPW President At WM



- MTV.com published a nice article looking at Mike Tyson’s WWE Hall of Fame speech, dubbing him “The Baddest Hall of Famer on the Planet.” Here’s a joke from his speech they published:

 

“I always wanted to be a wrestler before they turned it into WWE. I never got the opportunity, I got arrested!”

 

- Former WWE Superstar Funaki and New Japan Pro Wrestling President Takaaki Kidani have arrived in Miami and will be attending WrestleMania 28 tonight.

 

- Variety reports that WWE Studios will be going from family-friendly movies back to the horror, crime, sci-fi, action and thriller genres because of fan feedback. The new direction comes under WWE Studios head Michael Luisi and differs from the approach that previous head Mike Pavone took.

 

WWE will keep the PG rating on their TV shows but WWE Studios will bring PG-13 and R-rated movies. WWE Studios is looking to release six to eight films a year with most of them being based on reboots or sequels. WWE Superstars will continue to be featured in movies but mostly in supporting roles.
