- Above is a clip from last night's Talking Smack with Dolph Ziggler and WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz arguing about who was the better fighting champion and who brought the most prestige to the title.

- Below is the synopsis for tonight's Total Divas episode:

"A Big Flippin' Deal: Maryse clashes with Mike; Brie panics after a pregnancy scare; Trinity is offered a role in Marine 5 but must face her fears first."

- As seen below, former WWE Champion The Rock has finally made the cover of Sports Illustrated. He wrote:

EXCLUSIVE NEW COVER!
Failure can be a cool & powerful thing.. When I was 15yrs old and started playing football, I had a dream that one day I'd play in the NFL and be on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Keep in mind, at 15, I also considered becoming a pro-boxer 'cause I thought I could be beat Mike Tyson who at that time, became the youngest ever Heavyweight Champ, so clearly my goals were extremely ambitious if not crack pipe level impossible.
I failed to make it to the NFL (as well as got cut from the Canadian Football League). But my football failure created a drive that still pushes me today.
Now years later THE COVER of @SportsIllustrated dream & goal was just achieved. Holy s--t! (that's the 15yr old in me talkin';). At the end of the day, I want to surround myself with the hungriest and most brilliant team, because I never want to just play in the game, I always want change the way the game played.
And thank God I didn't fight Mike Tyson.
