John Cena has been telling people that he has a script in hand for a new WWE Films production that will begin filming in the fall. It will not be a sequel to The Marine. If and when this thing does come to play, he’ll most definitely have to take some time off from his WWE duties to shoot the film, or else face the burden of an incredibly taxing schedule. At the very least, he’ll have to scale back on house shows and media appearances. When he filmed The Marine, he took about a month off. It should be interesting to see if he does what he did when he filmed The Marine in late 2004 where he’d fly out to Australia every week to film the movie, and then hop back on the plane to go back to the U.S. to appear at WWE shows. At the time, he was just starting to gain a lot of momentum to build for his eventual championship win at WrestleMania 21, which is why he didn’t really take any time off. This time around, his spot is in safe-keeping and he’ll still be the number one guy in the company if he decided to take some time off from his WWE schedule.
Florida Championship Wrestling, WWE’s new developmental territory, held its first event at the Dallas Bull in Tampa, Florida last night. Harry Smith won a 21 person battle royal to become the first Florida Championship Wrestling Southern Heavyweight Champion. Rene Dupree also appeared on the show. Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart was in attendance.
Speaking of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, he is the latest former WWE star to be featured in the “Where Are They Now?” section on WWE.com. In the article, Neidhart talks about his career, what he’s been up to lately, and his daughter Nattie, who was signed to a WWE developmental contract. Click here to read the article.
