- Variety reports that Shawn Michaels has been cast in the upcoming Star Wars / superhero spoof Avengers of Justice: Farce Wars. The movie is about Earth reeling from billions of dollars in damages from the superhero - super-villain clashes. Stephen Rannazzisi (The League) plays SuperBat, a superhero who lost his fortune, and Michaels plays his mentor who gets him back into shape. The movie also stars Amy Smart and Simon Rex, and is directed by Jarret Tarnol.
- As noted earlier, James Ellsworth's new t-shirt was the top selling new item at WWEShop.com earlier this week. While Seth Rollins new t-shirt has taken the top spot, the Ellsworth t-shirt has been moving up the ranks as far as overall best selling t-shirts on the site. It is currently the sixth best selling shirt on WWEShop.com, behind t-shirts for Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, AJ Styles, Enzo & Cass and John Cena (seventh if you include Cena's youth shirt as a separate item). The Ellsworth t-shirt is outselling t-shirts for Goldberg, Randy Orton and Roman Reigns.
- Also, through this Sunday, select merchandise is $5, $10, and $15 at WWEShop.com. There is no promo code necessary, just use this link.
- Thanks to Wrestling Inc. reader for passing along this great video below, featuring Big E marking out when Goldberg passed him on RAW this past Monday night. Big E was a huge Goldberg fan growing up, and talked to The Sioux City Journal in 2013 about meeting Goldberg at a signing on the way to church when he was 10.
"Goldberg was my all-time favorite," Big E said. "He has a special place in my wrestling heart. It was something I will always remember. Goldberg complimented us for looking so nice as we were wearing suits. Those two minutes really meant alot to me."
Best part of Goldberg's return? Big-E's reaction. pic.twitter.com/2fNeIHYVsQ— Josh Wilding (@Josh_Wilding) October 18, 2016
