With news of his departure from Tna after a nearly decade long tenure, the name Samoa Joe is making headlines in the world of wrestling once again. The fact that he has informed all independent promoters that he will no longer be accepting bookings come April has fueled rampant speculation that he is finally making the move to WWE, something his fans have been clamoring for for years.
Joe was one of the bedrocks of Tna wrestling, but the promotion only seemed to utilize him effectively during a very short portion of his nine year career with the struggling company. Outside of his compelling feud with Kurt Angle and some outstanding matches with guys like Aj Styles and Christopher Daniels, it always felt like he had more to offer than what the Tna braintrust was able to come up with – a problem that has plagued the majority of their talents. »

Just weeks after CBS issued a pilot order for their Rush Hour TV series, National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub has signed on to direct the pilot. The filmmaker will also serve as executive producer alongside series creators Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick. No cast members have been attached at this time, and it isn't known when the pilot will start production.
Bill Lawrence revealed last month that the show will center on the same types of characters as the Rush Hour movie franchise, except they will be "a little younger" and the show will feature a whole new story. The Rush Hour movies starred Chris Tucker as a cocky Lapd cop who is forced to team up with a by-the-book Hong Kong inspector (Jackie Chan). The original Rush Hour, which hit theaters in 1998, spawned the sequels Rush Hour 2 (2001) and Rush Hour 3 (2007).
National Treasure and Last Vegas director Jon Turteltaub has signed on to helm the pilot episode of Rush Hour for CBS, according to Deadline. Based on New Line’s eponymous buddy cop franchise, the show is poised to revitalize the series in an entirely different medium while still retaining that fish out of water comedy heritage.
Fans of the original may disappointed to note that CBS’ rendition of Rush Hour won’t bring back stars Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker – once described as the fastest hands in the east meeting the biggest mouth of the west – for another bout of crime fighting action, but with Brett Ratner and Arthur Sarkissian returning to executive produce, the network’s small screen reboot could very well channel the gleeful, on-the-nose magic of the trilogy.
