– WWE Superstar The Rock was recently asked by a WWE fan on Twitter if Ted Turner and WCW ever attempted to lure him away from WWE during the heated “Monday Night Wars” in the 1990s. Rock replied to the fan with the following comment:
“Yup in the beginning. Offered 2xs my WWE salary. No thank you. My goal was to ‘move the crowd’ first. Money would come later.”
– The Big Show was reportedly taken off the scheduled lineups for the current WWE overseas tour due to concerns over his injury. The tentative plan is to have The Big Show team up with Mark Henry to face The Shield in a handicap match at the upcoming Summerslam PPV event.
