- Brendan Dassey, who was one of the subjects of Netflix's hit documentary series Making a Murderer, is apparently going to WrestleMania, according to a report from The Wrap. Dassey's murder conviction was overturned earlier this month after a nine-year stint in prison due to a judge stating that police investigators coerced his confession. Prosecutors have 90 days to decide if they will attempt to re-try Dassey.
"We are pleased that we can make this young man's dream of going to Wrestlemania come true," said xHamster spokesman Alex Hawkins. "We have been in talks with the family and they are more than thrilled that Brendan will get this opportunity after so many years of heartache and injustice. We are waiting on a response from Brendan and we know he will be thrilled that he is going to Wrestlemania when he gets out."
- As noted, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently ripped his Fast 8 co-star Vin Diesel on social media, writing that while some of his male co-stars "conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals... others don't." He stated that "the ones that don't are too chicken s--t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses."
For what it's worth, Life & Style magazine reports that "an insider" is claiming that the feud is a stunt to lead to a match, which in turn would promote the release of Fast 8 in April of 2017.
"The Rock convinced Vin to amp up the drama between them so they could turn it into a WWE match to help promote the April 2017 release of Fast 8," the insider said.
This is my final week of shooting #FastAndFurious8. There's no other franchise that gets my blood boiling more than this one. An incredible hard working crew. UNIVERSAL has been great partners as well. My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken s--t to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I'm not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling - you're right. Bottom line is it'll play great for the movie and fits this Hobbs character that's embedded in my DNA extremely well. The producer in me is happy about this part??. Final week on FAST 8 and I'll finish strong. #IcemanCometh #F8 #ZeroToleranceForCandyAsses
