-Rey Mysterio made an unannounced appearance in the Royal Rumble this year, but hasn’t been talked about by WWE on TV since. He told the Mirror.co.uk that he might be back again. “I want to say that there is a big possibility that I will be back,” Mysterio said, adding that they are “figuring out what the situation is, you know, from both ends. But there is definitely a positive feedback on behalf of the fans, on behalf of the WWE staff, and behalf of myself, man. I think we’re possibly going to sit down and negotiate something where we can both work together and have a good time and enjoy.” He loved his return to the Royal Rumble this year after being booed a few years ago when he came out at no. 30, eliminating the possibility of Daniel Bryan being the 30th entrant. “I don’t think I’ve ever felt that type of reaction, in a massive fanbase, like it was in Philly,” he said. “Man, it was just – unforgettable. It was just one of those feelings that you’re going to cherish and it will be with me for the rest of my life.
-“The Rock” Dwayne Johnson talked about his new competition reality series on NBC, “The Titan Games,” on his post-Super Bowl appearance on “The Tonight Show” on Sunday night. The show features everyday people trying out for his team of Titans who will battle six reigning Titans. “Titans aren’t born, they’re made,” he says in the promos video. Brian Gewirtz, a longtime WWE creative team member, is an executive producer on the show. Rock said sports helped him earlier in life. “It helped me through the best of times, the worst of times, it got me off the streets when I was getting arrested. Got me through depression. I was able to do a lot of great things,” he told Fallon. He said this show is a platform to give everyday people a chance to “change their lives and do something extraordinary.” The show is from the creator of “American Ninja Warrior.” Anyone can apply at www.NBC.com/Titans.
