SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
-WWE announced today that Dallas Page is the latest member of the 2017 Hall of Fame class. Already announced: The Rock & Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson), Teddy Long, and Kurt Angle. Check out my latest interview with DDP from last October HERE.
-TNA has announced the next sets of TV tapings in Orlando, Fla. at Universal Studios for Impact Wrestling programming. The next tapings will take place March 2-5, then Apr. 20-23, July 2-6, and Aug. 17-20. ProWrestling.net notes that the Hardys and Drew Galloway are not listed for the tapings. Their contracts expired last month. It doesn’t mean they won’t be at the tapings, but they’re not advertising them at this time. Drew Galloway told me on the PWTorch Livecast earlier this month he had not renewed but was negotiating for a possible renewal with TNA. As of last word, he has no signed with them, but the door isn’t closed. Listen to that interview HERE.
-The Rock posted on Twitter and Instagram about filming for “Fighting With My Family,” a movie based on Paige’s wrestling family, at Staples Center in Los Angeles today. His comments indicate he might appear on Raw tonight. He wrote: “Very cool to watch our amazing/bad ass @florencepugh embody the role of real life WWE Superstar Paige. We shot some great scenes together today that reflected my real life pivotal conversations I had with Paige. Very interesting to relive and shoot those moments. I appreciate our entire crew and actors working tirelessly on a Sunday. THANK YOU! The 6’7 stud standing with us, is our director/writer @stephenmerchant. Brilliant filmmaker and loved worldwide. I still think he’s an asshole. We’re bringing our production to rock the Staples Center tomorrow night for RAW.”
