WWE Studios releases first trailer for Leprechaun: Origins

6

As well as releasing the above trailer, WWE Studios announced that their latest film, Leprechaun: Origins, that stars Hornswoggle in a leading role, will be released on Digital HD, Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View on Aug. 26th and on Blu-ray and DVD on Sept. 30th. Judging from the clips it seems like a very paint by numbers horror flick, other than the terrible Irish accents, a more serious reimagining of the widely panned, low rent Leprechaun franchise. Given that WWE won't have paid much money for this movie either, it should turn a profit.

WWE's WrestleMania 30 draws 690,000 total PPV buys

Although garnering 690,000 buys on pay-per-view for WrestleMania plus simultaneously having 667,000 paid subscribers to the WWE Network sounds pretty impressive, the statistic may be misleading.

Antonio Inoki to promote another pro wrestling show in North Korea

Antonio_inoki_img_0398-2_20121224_jpg
Earlier today, it was announced that WWE Hall Of Famer and current Japanese politician, Antonio Inoki, would be promoting another state-sanctioned pro wrestling show in North Korea in late August under the theme of independence, peace and friendship. In late April 1995, Inoki, who then ran New Japan Pro Wrestling, held two shows in Pyongyang that both drew in excess of 150,000 fans, the two largest crowds in pro wrestling history, largely because the vast majority of people were practically ordered to attend. This move may get Inoki in trouble with the Japanese government again, as he was suspended from their parliament for 30 days in November last year when he made an unauthorised trip to the country. Although relations between the two countries have recently been slowly improving, there is still a lot of work left to be done, as Japan still seeks an agreeable final resolution on the issue of the abduction of several of their citizens by North Korea from 1977-1983.

The caption says "Better than ever at 44!", whilst looking like he's auditioning for a new Conan The Barbarian movie. Hunter must certainly be eating his vitamins, saying his prayers and drinking his milk to keep such a chiselled physique whilst being a full-time executive, loving husband and dedicated father of three young girls. No wonder Vince McMahon handpicked him to be his heir. Photo courtesy of WWE.com.

WWE tells The Daily Beast that Rusev & Lana's Anti-Americanism is sophisticated storytelling

12

WWE programming, like Hollywood movies and television shows, is an exciting blend of action, characters and fictional storylines of good versus evil that are often inspired by pop culture and current events. Russian President Vladimir Putin has given us good material to work with to create strong characters in Rusev and Lana, who are perceived as either protagonists or antagonists depending on where in the world you are watching WWE programming.

I always love when WWE acts like their most stereotypical one-dimensional characters are actually well rounded, sophisticated storytellers.

Batista may be sticking around for another month after all

Dave_bautista_by_gage_skidmore
According to Dave Meltzer, Batista might be working the WWE Payback special event on June 1st after all, before heading off for a couple of months, despite recent reports that he was starting his hiatus early after being unhappy with WWE creative's plans for him to lose to Daniel Bryan on the show. We'll find out on tomorrow's Monday Night Raw I guess, which story is correct.

Chael Sonnen credits Paul Heyman for saving TUF: Brazil 3

3

Paul was a guy that even without knowing him, I knew I could trust him. We have mutual friends, Brock Lesnar and C.M. Punk. I knew he was an expert in psychology and I was stuck, working through this spot, having to deal with this, [Wanderlei Silva] not talking to me and the reversal of roles that I didn't see coming. He told me, `Listen, you have to shoot on him. If he's not playing along, you have to drop everything and shoot on him.' He laid it out a lot more aggressive than that. `You have to drop everything and come clean.' He went into it a lot more detail than that. In many ways, Paul Heyman saved Ultimate Fighter (Brazil) 3. He kept his word. He kept his secrecy up. So not only should we thank Paul for the huge ratings, but we can also blame him for all the bad things.

Add Chael Sonnen to the growing list of Paul Heyman guys, as apparently he went to the booking genius for advice when Wanderlei Silva wouldn't work with him and follow his script ideas for the third season of the Brazilian version of UFC's The Ultimate Fighter "reality" TV show.
