Last November, Rock ‘The Dwayne’ Johnson delighted audiences with his portrayal of the demigod Maui in the Disney animated movie Moana. The film has made over $600 million at the global box office since. An impressive haul – considering at least one person contributed nothing towards it.
The Rock’s kind-of-relative Roman Reigns (their grandfathers were blood brothers) has revealed on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning whether he’d seen the movie: “Once, and it was bootlegged…so yeah, sorry Rock.”

Two other Raw wrestlers have also been rumoured for a Smackdown move. Squared Circle Sirens have reported Summer Rae – who’s been out with a shoulder injury since last August – has been at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando to get medically cleared to return to the ring. »

The last time the WWE Royal Rumble was in San Antonio, Texas (which happens to be his hometown), "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels successfully defended his World Heavyweight Title against Sycho Sid. The following Thursday, he famously vacated the Championship citing that he'd "lost his smile."
Well, if you saw Hbk on last night's WWE Monday Night Raw, you saw that the man is definitely smiling a lot these days. With the Rumble being back in San Antonio, and with him showing up to deliver some Sweet Chin Music to Rusev last night, Michaels was asked if there's a chance he could be one of this year's "Surprise Entrants" into the Royal Rumble match.
Here's what Hbk said:
"Well, I certainly may come by and visit. But, you »

The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels broke a lot of hearts when he retired from professional wrestling seven years ago. But don’t fret, WWE Universe, you can now get your fix of the fan-favorite in the movies. The Christian moves, that is. Michaels stars in the upcoming “Resurrection of Gavin Stone” as ex-con Doug, a reformed man and mechanic who has turned his life over to God. Doug helps former child star and Hollywood bad boy Gavin Stone (Brett Dalton) change his raucous ways and find some faith. While it may not be the “Sweet Chin Music” that people are used. »
