CM Punk May Not Technically Be In Breach of Contract
In his latest Ross Report with Mick Foley, JR mentioned that CM Punk may technically not be in breach of contract for walking out on WWE. Talent are contracted to make a certain amount of dates per year, he still has plenty of time to meet his obligations if he hasn’t already.
Vince McMahon’s official wording to investors is that Punk is on a “sabbatical”. He’s still under contract and still earning. If anything changes, such as Punk being released, WWE would have to announce it because they are a public company.
There is always the possibility that he’ll return.
WWE Considering Reality Show With Steve Blackman?
WWE sent a survey out to some subscribers to their email list yesterday, asking about potential reality shows for the WWE Network. One show being considered would feature former superstar Steve Blackman and his Bounty Hunting business, similar to Dog The Bounty Hunter. Here are the eight possibilities:
*Blackman’s Bounties – Former WWE star and legit badass Steve Blackman reality series following his bounty hunting team based out of Harrisburg, PA. Think Dog the Bounty Hunter.
*NXT: Behind the Scenes – A reality series following the talents trying to make it out of the Performance Center and to the main roster, looking at their work, their personal lives and the fraternity of the NXT brand, including the heartbreak of being cut. So, it’s Tough Enough-esque.
*Pros vs. Joes – Pretty much the same as the old SpikeTV series, pitting WWE talents against an average person in physical and non physical challenges. The non physical challenges listed included an air guitar competition. The physical challenges were described as similar to American Gladiators.
*WWE Around the World – Following WWE talents taking part in some of the scariest stunts and attractions around the world, such as shark diving and eating strange foods. It read as if it was modeled after some of the Travel Channel’s “Extreme” specials with a dash of Anthony Bordain’s No Reservations.
*WWE Dirty Jobs – Just like the Discovery Channel reality series of the same name, WWE talents have to perform unpleasant jobs, including going into Chicago sewers and picking up garbage in NYC.
*WWE Prankdown – a practical joke show that features WWE talents pulling tricks on unsuspecting “Superfans.” The example given was John Cena and Randy Orton both wanting to buy an expensive car and getting into a fight at the dealership, only to show the damage they caused was part of the show to trick the fan.
*WWE Rescue – a reality show where WWE talents come to the homes of “super fans” help them with their personal and business problems. Think Restaurant Impossible meets Nanny 911.
*WWE Ultimate Challenge- WWE’s version of CBS’ Amazing Race with a 12 hour extreme scavenger hunt in different cities.
*Xtreme WWE Collector – Starring “Super fan Michael Patterson” – basically a WWE version of Travel Channel’s Toy Hunter, except Patterson is chasing WWE toys and memorabilia.
Stolen Hulk Hogan Boot Returned
Hulk Hogan’s stolen boot has found its way home … thanks in part to your good friends at TMZ.
The Hulkster tells TMZ the boot was returned today by one of the women involved in the theft. We’re told the husband of one of the women involved (it’s unclear which) saw TMZ’s story about the theft and pressured the group to come clean.
According to Hulk, the woman who took the boot had returned home to Michigan, but left it in the car of one of the other women … who lives in nearby Tampa. When the women called the store to say they would return the boot, the store then called the cops … who were waiting when the woman arrived with the boot.
The woman who returned the boot was not arrested, but we’re told a warrant has been issued back in Michigan for the woman who actually lifted the boot.
