- David Otunga discussed taking time off from WWE to film the movie ‘The Call’ during a recent interview with The Baltimore Sun.

“It was definitely different. All I’ve done for the past three years is WWE non-stop. You get used to a certain way of life and certain things. I’m so busy on the road, I don’t get downtime, so now with the movie, for the first time in my life and in the past three years I had downtime and it was like I didn’t know what to do with myself. So, I might go to the gym and work out and I’d think now what, I don’t have to rush to the arena, I don’t have to drive to the next city. I got to relax my mind and my body, it was fun. When filming wrapped I was awfully excited to get back, it was cool, and it was the first time I had been away for a while. When I came back I was just ready to go, I was rejuvenated.”

- WWE published an article about The Rock wanting to be part of the next Star Wars installment.

- Chris Jericho will be at next Thursday’s NXT taping at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL.

      agree with the wrestling part, but i dont see how rock could fuck up the star wars franchise more then lucus has done lol if jackson can be in star wars and about every other film made,rock can, but rock should play a sith lord,cause no jedi is ripped they dont need to be.
