- The Italian Tribune News reported recently that the movie based on the life of WWE legend Bruno Sammartino will begin filming in April in Italy. The movie is also expected to film in Tokyo, New York, San Francisco and Pittsburgh.
- As noted earlier, Rey Mysterio vs. Wade Barrett in a 1-on-3 handicap match is advertised for WWE’s February 5th show in Toronto. The story behind this is that the match was originally booked as Big Show vs. 3 members of Nexus, before Nexus became The Corre. When The Corre came about, WWE changed the match to Mysterio vs. Barrett and most likely the 1-on-3 billing wasn’t removed from advertisements.
- WWE is doing a DVD on Hall of Famer Gorgeous George in an attempt to make him relevant, as they are also producing a movie on his life through WWE Studios. WWE wants to market George as the originator of sports entertainment and re-brand him as wrestling’s Babe Ruth type of character. It’s been reported before that the George DVD and WWE Studios movie are close projects to Vince McMahon.
