Cena is playing a former Marine who Chan, a private security contractor from China, teams up with to stop attackers who are trying to steal oil from a Chinese refinery in the Middle East.

The film is being directed by Scott Waugh, written by Arash Amel, and Chan is one of the producers. Waugh previously directed "Need for Speed" in 2014 and "Act of Valor" in 2012.

Cena hasn't appeared on WWE television since his matches against Triple H at the Greatest Royal Rumble and The Undertaker at WrestleMania 34 in April. He has a role in the Transformers spinoff "Bumblebee," which is set to be released this December.

With Kevin Kelly doing commentary, NJPW’s Strong Style Evolved UK shows on June 30th and July 1st will be uploaded to Revolution Pro Wrestling’s streaming service within 48 hours of taking place. RevPro noted that they'll then be posted on New Japan World shortly after.

ROH confirmed that KUSHIDA will be facing Jay Lethal at their Best in the World pay-per-view in Baltimore on June 29th.

Matt Riddle vs. Tomohiro Ishii, KUSHIDA vs. Shane Strickland, and Timothy Thatcher vs. David Starr are set for OTT’s WrestleRama 2 at The Arena in Dublin on August 18th.

MLW announced Johnny Mundo, ACH, Davey Boy Smith Jr., and Kevin Sullivan as the first four wrestlers for their Battle Riot match, which will be taking place at their TV tapings in Queens, New York on July 19th. It’s a no DQ, 40-person match with someone entering every 60 seconds, with eliminations occurring via pinfall, submission, or being thrown over the top rope.

Stardom has sold over 1,200 tickets for Io Shirai’s farewell show at Korakuen Hall on June 17th.

EVOLVE announced that WALTER will challenge WWE NXT North American Champion Adam Cole at the 6/24 EVOLVE event in Melrose, MA. EVOLVE sent out a press release with the following glowing comments from Gabe Sapolsky, who of course also works for NXT. "This is a landmark announcement for EVOLVE. WWE has been growing this relationship with EVOLVE for a few years. We are ecstatic that the next step is this historic match on June 24th. This is all about giving the fans in the Boston area something special. Our deepest thanks to Mr. Levesque for making this happen."

Madison Rayne & MJF defeated Brandi Rhodes & Flip Gordon at Friday’s WrestlePro card to gain spots on the “All In” event on September 1st and continuing the story of Gordon not being booked. There was also a segment at Dominion where The Young Bucks invited Don Callis to call the event in September. This confirms that there will be some form of an outlet for the show to be viewed.

The existing WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida launched in July 2013. The 26,000 square foot Performance Center houses seven wrestling rings, a complete production studio, medical and physical rehab facilities, a complete gym and more. You can read my coverage from attending and touring the opening of the PC in 2013 by clicking here.

It was tough, it was tough to lose Trevor, Ricochet, Prince Puma for those who don’t know. He was kind of the heart and soul of Lucha Underground but I’m glad he had the opportunity to go somewhere else and had the chance to show the rest of the world what he can do. As far as replacing him, I think we set ourselves up pretty well with a bunch of characters that are over and people care about. I wasn’t too concerned about that. We have guys like Johnny Mundo, Phoenix, Mil Muertes, those are characters that we’ve invested a lot of time in and not to mention we have Pentagon Dark. Ultimate Lucha was kind of a passing of the torch from Puma to Pentagon as kind of the kingpin of Lucha Underground.

The show retained 80 percent of the Raw audience from the night before, slightly less than what SmackDown has been doing of late but still in the normal range. Of note, this is the sixth straight week that SmackDown has been below 2.3 million viewers. Prior to that, they had only been below that mark once, on Halloween night, since June 13th of last year.

Levesque added that the issue was with Ricochet's shoulders.

According to the report we received, Ricochet appeared to hurt himself on a tope while teaming with Johnny Gargano against Velveteen Dream & Tommaso Ciampa at Monday's show in Paris. He was helped to the back before returning to celebrate with Gargano after the match but didn't appear in Antwerp, Belgium on Tuesday.

Wrestling Inc. was on the call, and with the sharp increase in television rights fees for live sports-oriented programming, I asked Triple H if he sees the show going live and moving to a cable network in the future.

"To your point, the landscape of the world changes on a regular basis, whether that be cable live television, broadcast television, networks, OTT services and everything else, it's changing on a daily basis," Triple H said. "My point of view on that would be, 'never say never.'

"RAW and SmackDown are obviously the juggernauts, that will never change, but NXT has kind of grown into its own. It still is, at its core in some way, where people are developing. But at the same time, they're still developing when they're on RAW and SmackDown, I think you never stop doing that in this business. It really has become a third brand, an alternative brand. I think it's different from both RAW certainly, and SmackDown. It has its own wide fanbase and I think that there's interest there, so you can never say never. It's all in what comes up down the line."

Earlier this week during a media interview, Bobby Roode had suggested the WWE was building a "new" and "larger" Performance Center. Triple H squashed that rumor, stating that while Roode's information is "glorious", it's "just not accurate always."

"We have no current plans for a larger facility that are in the works," Triple H said. "It is constantly something we are looking at, growing and evolving, I never want to be stagnant to where we are. The Performance Center is kind of the heart of what we do, because it's creating the future and it's churning out all this talent, plus the content we're creating there. There will be some announcements on some new things we are doing from there soon.

"I'm always open to that idea of expanding out in the future. Is it in my mind? Absolutely. Have we started actually doing that yet or physically going down that road? We have not. But I do appreciate Bobby's enthusiasm for it, certainly."

Dave Meltzer updates on Brock Lesnar's status w/ WWE

In this week's Observer Meltz says Brock may not be used at SummerSlam (I am sure he will be, those Roman/Brock drops are a real thing during RAW) - but Meltz says Brock's status is a bit undecided at this point, despite SummerSlam being the last date on his contract and there is a lot of confusion about what will happen if Brock's contract runs out and he isn't used on TV again despite being Universal Champ, if the belt will just retire w/ Brock or he'll be stripped of it or w/e.

lmao if they retire the belt already

Even if having a floating world champion is the "right thing" or whatever, it'd still be funny because it shows this company can't ever make up its fucking mind.

It sounds like it's alllll Vince to. Meltzer said the plan WAS Brock/Roman for SSlam and they still are pushing Roman should face Brock on RAW during commentary -- but now Vince has changed his mind and doesn't know if he wants to use Lesnar again before his contract ends.

I am sure he will -- but I remember Meltz reporting a few months back Vince wanted Brock to drop the belt at Extreme Rules and wasn't planning on using him at SummerSlam but then changed his mind to SummerSlam.

You know what. Let him keep the belt, let him go fight for a year or two in UFC. Then he comes back, as a 4 year champ and of course, loses to Roman. Then it might work. Maybe. But I'd hope someone else would step up to take the shot by then.

Instead of being petty over Punk and other dumb decisions regarding the RAW brand, WWE could have saved themselves the headaches by never having 2 major belts to begin with. Would have made them a lot more cautious of giving Lesnar a long reign and actually force themselves to put real work and effort into the IC and US divisions.

Even if Reigns finally defeats Lesnar for the belt, he's beyond damaged goods as a top star now. Maybe even worse than Luger or Diesel were as top star material.

That's what I think. I mean, I'm not big on the brand split, but if you are going to do it, have your main event title matches or whatever, but don't do two Women's Title matches on the same show. If Ronda Rousey vs. Nia Jax is happening, then do Charlotte vs. Asuka without the belt. Then give SmackDown the Tag Title match and don't do a Raw Tag Title one.

Satomura is a founder of the Sendai Girls promotion in Japan and has been wrestling for over 20 years. She's also been wrestling on the United Kingdom independent scene fairly often recently, appearing for Pro Wrestling: EVE and Fight Club: PRO. She won the Fight Club: PRO title from Chris Brookes earlier this year.

The Mae Young Classic will be taped in Orlando, Florida on August 8th and 9th. Last year's tournament had a 32-wrestler field that included a mix of wrestlers who were under contract with WWE and those who weren't.

Hoping for tens of thousands of subscribers with EVOLVE as your home company just wasn’t going to cut it, and with just a few thousand subscribers, FloSports closed the entire pro wrestling division

This week, Pivotshare, which has deals with more than 100 companies in 15 countries, is trying to do what FloSlam failed, which is to be the destination for independent wrestling, with the creation of the Powerslam Wrestling Network.

The key differences are that Pivotshare already has deals in place with a number of promotions, and that they are starting out with a $5.99 per month price as opposed to the $20 per month price that FloSlam charged. They, being around wrestling for four years, also have a better idea of the independent marketplace ...

The service will be launching immediately on iOS and Android devices, as well as Apple TV, Roku Channels, Amazon Channels and at the portal powerslam.tv. They expect to release 40 to 50 events per month. At launch, there will be deals with 75 different promotions and 2,000
hours of archived content.

Vampiro announced he was leaving and going back too Canada because he suffered a broken neck from Killer Kross’ back suplex and has to retire. If you’ve followed Vampiro’s careers and retirements enough you’d know this isn’t much of a story. The last time he said he broke his neck and had to retire was a few months ago

The Equity union negotiated the minimum rate through collective bargaining. The talent was able and was encouraged to negotiate above the minimum. The performers were treated like any other talent in a dramatic production as far as having their costs associated with being in the area and performing taken care of as far as travel and accommodations. During the old World of Sport days, wrestling was not treated in this manner and was unregulated, but this was a precedent for wrestling in the U.K. The hope is that if the first season is a success they’ll be able to collective bargain for better minimum rates for season two

I think it’s clear by how good a shape he’s in that they want him back and it’s just a matter of making the right kind of money and schedule deal. He’s doing very well working a limited schedule because he commands the highest price per appearance on the independent market right now. But WWE can afford seven figures for limited dates even more now than ever before. It is going to be a very interesting next several months

Some other sheet news includes:
  • According to the Observer, Dr. Christopher Amann's contract with the WWE currently expires this October.
  • For those that actually care about Meltzer's star ratings, Omega-Okada IV got rated 7 stars.

Definitely worse than both. With Reigns this has been going on for almost 5 years. Nash had a bit of a spotty title reign but was over immediately after because he reinvigorated his character and really began delivering in his promos and in ring. It's almost a shame he went to WCW because there were legs with asskicker Diesel.

Luger is Luger - good booking or bad booking. He tended to fit in better in WCW.

Roman is the worst damaged goods I've ever seen.

Definitely were legs! He was the Diesel we needed as champ especially since there weren't many credible heels. But WWE has been a babyface territory going back to Vince Sr. so no heel was staying champ for too long.

I think Amann will leave the company quietly when his contract is up.

I'm hoping for an exodus of WWE talent over the next year. I want Brock, Bryan, Ziggler, Styles, Nakamura, Gallows and Anderson to all turn down WWE offers and go to New Japan/Pro-Wrestling Other.

Don't see any of those leaving except for Lesnar and it'll most likely be UFC instead.

The 50 year old has had a lot of buzz on the indies lately, especially since his match against WALTER at Joey Janela’s Spring Break II over WrestleMania weekend. BOLA 2018 will take place at the Globe Theatre in Los Angeles from September 14-16.

PCO has also been added to MLW’s 40-person Battle Riot match in Queens, New York on July 19, joining Johnny Mundo, Pentagon Jr., ACH, Kevin Sullivan, Davey Boy Smith Jr., Teddy Hart, Rich Swann, Barrington Hughes, Jake Hager, and Jimmy Yuta.

Pentagon Jr. & Fenix defending their Tag Team titles against ACH & Rich Swann has been added to MLW’s TV tapings in Orlando on July 12.

Jay Lethal vs, BJ Whitmer, Christopher Daniels vs. Delirious, Marty Scurll vs. Rhett Titus, Silas Young vs. Flip Gordon, Mark Briscoe vs. Will Ferrara, Hangman Page vs. Frankie Kazarian, Cheeseburger vs. Beer City Bruiser, and Jay Briscoe vs. Kenny King will be the first round matches in the Sea of Honor tournament on Chris Jericho’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Rager at Sea cruise. The winner will receive a future ROH World Championship shot.

The new episode of Being the Elite is built around the Elite vs. New Day E3 video game thing from Thursday and other shenanigans. There is a big tease at the end for a match between the two sides.

Io Shirai had her farewell match to Stardom on Sunday at Korakuen Hall. Shirai teamed on the show with Mayu Iwatani defeating Kagetsu & Hazuki. Shirai also came out after the main event where Momo Watanabe retained the Wonder of Stardom title over Jungle Kyona and Shirai put Watanabe over to the audience as the big star of the promotion.

Punishment Martinez won the ROH Television title on Saturday at the promotion’s ‘State of the Art’ card from Dallas, Texas. Silas Young was facing Martinez, Cheeseburger, Hangman Page, Scorpio Sky, and Jonathan Gresham in Proving Ground match, where Young would have to defend the title immediately if he lost the match. Martinez pinned Cheeseburger to receive the automatic title shot and defeated Young to win the title. Martinez is scheduled to face Hangman Page at the ‘Best in the World’ pay-per-view on June 29th in Baltimore.

The promotion went dormant and was revived in 2014 with digital episodes produced for YouTube and their website, which has the 10-episode fourth season available for free at www.wowe.com. WOW will join New Japan Pro Wrestling as the two wrestling properties on AXS TV.

A source in WWE indicated to BodySlam Managing Editor Brad Shepard that the internal list of Brock Lesnar’s scheduled dates in WWE going forward is blank.

The source is presuming that Lesnar will be at Summerslam but says that wasn’t concrete as of last week. This past week on Raw, a multi-person match was announced for Extreme Rules with the winner to face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship, at a date yet to be named.

The source indicated that Brock will obviously return, but the fact that his dates going forward aren’t known yet is unusual and would seem to indicate something else is going on.

I noticed Brock's disappeared from the most recent SummerSlam promo material as well, from Barclay's Center's website:

It wasn't all good news, however, as the show was down eight percent year-over-year and retained just under 80 percent of the Raw viewers from the previous night. Raw was also down year-over-year, so again the biggest factor in SmackDown viewership seems to be whatever the Raw audience was the night before.

As we first reported, Cass went against a directive from Vince McMahon last month during a segment involving a little person. We’re told this is when things began to go south for him.

According to Sports Illustrated, Big Cass was apparently drinking during the European tour which took place a week later and allegedly had “attitude issues.” They also claim “being intoxicated in public” is one of the underlying reasons for his firing.

Multiple sources tell us one of the incidents which rubbed people the wrong way happened in private, however, on the WWE bus chauffeuring talent.

We’re told the bathroom lock was apparently broken, but Cass didn’t realize it and thought he was being pranked. After being stuck inside for too long, a claustrophobic/angry Cass broke down the door. This meant people had to embarrassingly use the bathroom afterward with no door.

This, obviously, made some of the riders on the bus unhappy. It’s worth noting that some understood his frustration though and weren’t as angry as others.

Both of these incidents in such short time — coupled with 1-2 additional unverified incidents that we’re working to confirm with sources — seem to have been the final straw.
