WWE News: John Cena Scores Movie Role In Jackie Chan’s ‘Project X’

Published

on

WWE Superstar John Cena has primarily been in the news over the past couple of months not because of anything he’s done in WWE, but the ongoing saga of his reported on-again, off-again relationship with Nikki Bella (which you can find all of here). We’ve got a change of pace today however!

Deadline.com is reporting that Cena has signed on for a new movie, Project X, featuring Jackie Chan who is also one of the producers. The film being written by Arash Amel (The Titan-2018, A Private War-2018, Grace Of Monaco-2014) and directed by Scott Waugh (Act Of Valor-2012, Need For Speed-2014) is currently in pre-production.

This comes after Cena saw his movie Blockers hit theaters this Spring, plus he landed the starring role in the Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson project The Jansen Directive (which you can read here) and is the star of the forthcoming Transformers movie, a Bumblebee spin-off.

Below is a description of the film via Deadline:

“A Chinese private security contractor who must help get oil workers out of peril when the refinery is attacked in Baghdad. Once he uncovers the attack as part of a plot to steal the oil, he partners with an American former Marine who lives in Iraq teaching orphans. The Marine had been fooled into thinking he was working to seize illegally gotten Chinese assets before he learns he was had and partners up with the Snow Leopard Commando.”

Cody Starts ‘Nightmare Family’ YouTube Channel, Premieres New ‘All Us’ Show

Published

on

Earlier today, Cody took to Twitter with a tease for an announcement coming tonight that led to a lot of speculation on what said announcement could be. Most believe it would revolve around the upcoming All In show that Cody’s co-producing with The Young Bucks (and speculatively with help from Ring Of Honor), which will emanate from the Sears Centre in Chicago, Illinois on September 1st:

Yesterday, it was reported that the event would be broadcast in some capacity (which you can read here) after weeks of speculation on whether or not fans who couldn’t get a ticket could tune in. Cody has now announced the start of his own YouTube channel, ‘Nightmare Family’, also premiering the first episode of ‘All Us’, explaining some of the ins-and-outs of All In:

Among the topics discussed, Cody and The Young Bucks reaffirmed that the show will be filmed, but also addressed the possibility of current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho appearing when answering a question on who called them after All In sold out:

Cody: “Y2J…and he’s not saying he wants to be on the show. He’s the biggest tease in the history of all teases. ‘Hey my invitation got lost in the mail, I’m Chris Jericho’, walks away. ‘Oh, you guys are doing so great’.”

Matt: “I think that’s the allure of it, I think he’s doing that purposely ’cause he wants us to like, finally hit him up and beg him almost. And I would love to have him on the show, of course I would.”

Nick: “At this point, we know he’s going to give us a fee. I don’t know if we can afford it to be honest, I’m gonna be honest. If we want to make a little bit of money.”

Cody: “Spend it now, make more later. We can pay Jericho’s price. Well, maybe.”

They would also speak on hearing from Hulk Hogan and how ‘The Hulkster’ may have hinted at wanting to be involved, the fans almost being the ones who have booked the event and much more.

EA’s Take: Another brilliant move here to get interest in themselves and All In by starting this series/channel. I wouldn’t even call myself a tremendous fan of theirs and I was sucked into it. Must watch if you’re a wrestling fan, they continue to give more teases for All In, thus setting up for an even bigger one next year with how much publicity and buzz the show’s getting. Quite frankly, I think if you’re going to tease Jericho like this, which is what I took that part as, you almost have to get him now. It appears as if Jericho’s recent comments about not wanting to work against Vince in the United States were probably just another work by one of the best ever.

WWE News: Sami Zayn Undergoes Shoulder Surgery, Scheduled For Another

Published

on

We reported earlier this week that WWE RAW Superstar Sami Zayn had been suffering from an undisclosed injury (which you can check out here) and was in Birmingham, Alabama to be evaluated, which was the reason for Bobby Lashley defeating him in dominating fashion at Money In The Bank on Sunday.

Today, WWE.com has revealed through an interview with ‘The Underdog from the Underground’ that Sami has undergone surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. Additionally, Zayn will be undergoing another surgery on his left shoulder very soon, putting him out of action for approximately 8 months:

“Well, right now I’m in Birmingham, Ala. I just underwent surgery for my right shoulder, a.k.a. my good shoulder. So, I’m out for a little while with that. I guess people don’t know about this injury; I’ve been working with it for some time. I don’t know exactly when I tore it. I think I tore it, or initially injured it, on a Montreal Live Event. Which is ironic because I injured my left shoulder — now somewhat famously — in Montreal in my [Raw] debut against John Cena. And at a Live Event this past August wrestling Jinder Mahal, I think I injured it then.

But then my left shoulder, a.k.a my bad shoulder, started to act up again as well. That shoulder hasn’t quite been the same since surgery anyway, so I had just kind of gotten used to the fact that that shoulder was the bad one. But it started to get progressively worse, so basically, long story short, it turns out I have two torn rotator cuffs. The left one and the right one are both torn. I just underwent surgery on the right one, and then in about six or seven weeks, I’ll be undergoing surgery on the left one, and hopefully I can come back healthy and happy.”

You can go here to read the full interview.
