-Deadline reports in an exclusive today that David A. Neuman’s Blackrock Productions has acquired rights to develop and produce a movie or short TV series based on “ConspiracyPeter Thiel, Hulk Hogan, Gawker and the Anatomy of Intrigue.” The book covers Hulk Hogan’s legal battle with Gawker Media over releasing a scandalous sex tape video involving Hogan. Peter Thiel, a Silicon Valley billionaire, secretly funded Hogan’s lawsuit which resulted in a $140 million judgment against Gawker in favor of Hogan. ARTICLE LINK

-Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum says he is interested in wrestling for WWE while continuing his UFC career. He told MMAFighting.com he thinks can juggle both careers and that it’d be worth it financially. “I have a meeting Thursday about it, doing both (UFC and WWE),” he said. “I want to fight, doesn’t matter where.” Werdum is 40 years old and has a polarizing personality in UFC, where he has accumulated a 23-7 record. His meeting is tomorrow in San Diego.

-Sheamus posted on Twitter that they are in need of a worthy WrestleMania 34 opponent and issued an “open challenge” as part of an ongoing TV storylines. The Young Bucks posted that they happen to have that date open and that Ring of Honor would likely grant them a one-day exception to work that WWE date. It’s a nice p.r. troll by The Young Bucks to get some attention and embarrass The Bar, in the sense that The Bar can’t really accept the offer and WWE has other plans, but don’t expect the Young Bucks to make their WWE debut under those circumstances.
