Speaking of RAW, Jim Ross was a fan of the Daniel Bryan storyline. He wrote in his JRSBARBQ.com blog:
Loved the antagonist angst aka ‘heat’ that the show produced for the primary storyline going into WrestleMania 30 in NOLA. The opening segment was stellar. Now the winner of the HHH vs. Daniel Bryan one on one match is going into the main event, WWE Title bout with Triple Threat rules and that match now has more intrigue. Good booking from where I’m sitting.
The last segment of RAW rocked as I like “heat” (no jokes please) and HHH got an ample amount of steam on Daniel Bryan which added a great deal to the WM30 scenario. The hay is largely in the barn for this storyline but I’m anxious to see if WWE adds any thing new to the scenario that will culminate in a couple of weeks in the Super Dome in a likely show closing presentation.
The Rock Is A Moody 260lb Monk?
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has once again transformed his body for his new role in Hercules. He wrote on Instagram:
I trained and worked harder than ever for 8 months for this role. Lived alone and locked myself away (like a moody 260lb monk) in Budapest for 6 months while filming. Goal was to completely transform into this character. Disappear in the role. Press journalist asked me today, with the mental & physical toll the role had on me, would I do it again? Not only would I do it again.. I’d do it f*cking twice. You’ll be the first to see the EXCLUSIVE #HERCULES trailer one week from today. Look forward to showing you… #TilDeathOrVictory #AndALittle12LaborsBlood
Interestingly former WWE star John Morrison is currently filming a lower budget Hercules film himself.
