NBC Declines The Rock’s Proposed Wrestling Series, Edge On Why He Cut His Hair

– NBC has decided against going forward with a drama pilot about 1980s professional wrestling involving Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as an executive producer and Jerry Bruckheimer’s production company, reports The option for the series was not renewed last month. Since NBC purchased the series and guaranteed a pilot episode would air, the network is believed to have paid a penalty for dropping the project.

– Former WWE talent Adam Copeland (a/k/a Edge) appeared on a Canadian morning radio show Wednesday promoting his upcoming appearances on Syfy’s supernatural drama series Haven. He explained that he cut his signature locks last spring prior to his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame because he didn’t want to be a 40-year-old with a ponytail and there were no tables, ladders and chairs in his life. The 14-minute interview is available here.

– In Thursday’s birthdays, WWE Hall of Famer Wendi Richter turns 51-years-old, one-time WWE Divas Champion Jillian Hall turns 32, and Low Ki, winner of the second season of WWE NXT, turns 33.

– The 2010 film Tooth Fairy, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, airs on FX on Thursday at 2:00 p.m. and Friday at 11:00 a.m.

    paul s, pol… nah, just fuck off ya cunt.

  • paul s

    Edge, politely fuck off. Long hair fucking rocks. Pity he wasn’t as concerned being a wrestler with no physique whatsoever. Always pissed me off him using a spear, never suited his size so hardly a devestating move, nevermond a finisher

  • TheSheepDog

    which wrestler is everyone talking about? who is referred to as ‘the wrestler’ never heard that name in wwe :S

  • Unique

    Why do you assume The Ram died at the end?

  • Moo

    Oooooo, HBK is somewhere going “oh no he didn’t!!”

  • sepulz

    Haha continuation….I guess you want a continuation of braveheart as well?

  • Alan Wake

    A continuation?? Did you not see the ending of The Wrestler??

  • Phill Mics

    And now apparently Triple H cut his hair…..why? I don’t know. I think it looks terrible and it was a huge mistake for HHH, Edge, Undertaker, Roode, etc etc to cut the classic long hair. We have to stop HBK and Bret Hart before its too late! The classic wrestler look is almost gone!!

  • Little Jimmy

    I’d love to see s spinoff TV series of the film The Wrestler, Either of The Ram’s early year’s or a continuation from the film.

  • Justin sane
