Rusev Removes WWE References From Twitter, Box Office News For The Rock's Latest Movie, WWE Shop

- Dwayne Johnson's latest movie, Rampage, opens today. According to Box Office Pro, it is projected to open at $36.5 million this weekend. That is about what Johnson's last movie, Jumanji, opened at last December ($36.17 million). Jumanji had ridiculous staying power, however, and this week it surpassed Spider-Man at the domestic box office this week to become Sony's biggest hit in North America. Jumanji has grossed $403.74 million domestically, with a worldwide total of $950.8 million.

Jumanji had garnered positive reviews, earning a 76% at movie review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. The reviews for Rampage aren't nearly as favorable, as it sits at a 53%. However, that is still better than the reviews for another hit movie from Johnson, San Andreas, which had scored a 50%.

- It's $5 Friday at WWEShop.com, with select WWE merchandise only $5 today. There is no promo code needed, just use this link.
