Current DVD’s WWE is planning for 2011 include the 100 Craziest Moments, Best of WCW Nitro, History of DX, History of the United States Title and a set on the Divas. Superstar DVD sets planned for next year include Randy Orton, Big Show, Goldust, Jerry Lawler and Greg “The Hammer” Valentine.
The Team RAW vs. Team SmackDown match at Bragging Rights may turn into a three-way with John Cena leading a team of Nexus members.
Now that's an interesting one. I want to see it, and hope that Cena will be acting like he did in his first match as an official member of Nexus. That would be an interesting thing to see.
While we're sort of on the topic of John Cena:
WWE Studios’ production crew was filming Blood Brothers today in Cerrillos, New Mexico. Blood Brothers will be John Cena’s next movie.
Jimmy Snuka, Jake Roberts and Terry Funk were confirmed today as playable characters in WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2011. Yoshi Tatsu and Gail Kim were also officially announced.

Shawn Michaels said on Twitter that he will be letting fans in on some news next week. For what it’s worth, Shawn said he is “getting back into work some.”
Celebrity news site HollywoodLife.com is reporting that WWE is negotiating with with teen pop star Justin Bieber to sing America the Beautiful at Wrestlemania 27.
“It is so perfect! To have Justin perform in front of 70,000 plus people would just be amazing! It is so perfect”, their source said. “It’s still a work in progress but it would be a lot of fun.”
Opening WrestleMania would put Bieber in an elite club of music icons that includes Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles.
What I think of this?
Typical PG-rating bullshit. If they put Bieber out there, I am not buying the DVD, that's for sure. And I hope lots of people do this. Because Bieber just doesn't go with WWE. Also, music icon? Really?
But that's just my humble opinion, of course.
Legendary hip hop star and Wu Tang Clan member The RZA has announced former WWE star Batista has joined the cast of his new movie, “The Man with the Iron Fist” starring Academy Award winner Russell Crow.
Chris Jericho had an interview with the UK Sun recently, in which he talked about WWE, amongst other things.
The complete interview can be read here.
Matt Hardy noted on Twitter last night that he was watching TNA iMPACT. Hardy wrote: “I also really dig seeing my buds like Tommy Dreamer & Mickie James on Impact-they seem happy, less stressed.”
Matt Hardy also posted another Youtube video trying to set the record straight (again) as much as he can.
He says about 6 or 7 weeks ago, he came across a “monumental piece of information” that made him decide it was definitely time for him to move away from WWE, something he was thinking about doing during the 12-18 months prior.
He said he asked “the right people” a couple of times if he could get a release and they said no. Then he says tried plan B. He went on an overseas tour and tried to “cause a couple of problems”. Everybody, but Christian, bought into it.
He then came back home and tried to “kick it into high gear” by making those videos by MATTHEW (all caps). He says that was done in character and he isn’t crazy and psychopathic as he comes across in the videos, although he finds it funny that people actually think that.
He said he went back and forth with WWE and has come to an agreement, I am assuming to stop making those videos. He says he has upheld his end of the deal, and as soon as they uphold their end, something “special” is going to happen, because he has “got them right where he wants them”. He also says his next video will be about Lita regarding recent comments she made about him.
That's all for today folks, I hope you enjoyed the read.
Until next time,
Rest In Peace,
