Former WWE Star Lands A Role In A Popular Movie

Former WWE Superstar John Morrison has landed a role in popular movie series Sharknado 5. Here’s what he wrote on Instagram: “Stoked for Sharknado 5 y’all!! I have a fun lil role and may or may not be taking some of them sharks to #Slamtown”.

Here’s the synopsis for the movie: “As shark-infested storms grow stronger and more complex, the world braces for the inevitable – a global sharknado. This year, the mission gets personal for chainsaw-wielding leader Fin Shepard and his bionic wife, April, when their young son gets trapped in a sharknado and is transported all over the world.”

The Rock Considered Going To The UFC 10 Years Ago

During an appearance on UFC Unfiltered, WWF Legend The Rock talked about how he considered going to the UFC 10 years ago:

“I thought, man, I achieved everything I wanted to achieve in WWE, my movie career is floundering a little bit, what do I do? I thought, oh well maybe UFC. In my head, I felt like it was at least a two-year process for me to even get in the cage, let alone the UFC. I wasn’t quite too sure what to do or what kind of people to put around me at the time, so the idea kind of fizzled out and I continued to stay on the path of movie making.”
