Colin Vassallo -[editor@...]-
Not much going on today. Arrived in Manchester a couple of hours ago for

//->> NEWS FROM THE WRESTLING-ONLINE NEWSWIRE
Web version at http://www.wrestling-online.com/
> THE ROCK LANDS NEW TNT SERIES- Dwayne The Rock Johnson will lead another series on TNT although it
wont be a second season of The Hero, but rather a new series which has a
working title of Wake Up Call. In this series, Johnson will be lending a
helping hand to everyday people who are facing enormous challenges in
their lives. TNT ordered eight episodes of the Wake Up Call which is being
produced by Electus, 5x5 Media and 7 Bucks Entertainment. Several big
names from The Biggest Loser, Survivor, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,
The Amazing Race, and other shows will be serving as executive producers.
"We had a wonderful time working with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson on The
Hero, in which he challenged and mentored a group of everyday heroes,"
said David Eilenberg, senior vice president, unscripted development for
TNT and TBS. "Wake Up Call evolved from our experience on The Hero and is
its natural successor, bringing the human spirit of that show home to take
on everyday challenges. In this new series, Dwayne will bring his mission
of empowerment and change right to people's front doors."
> MR. ANDERSON RETURNS TO TNA- Mr. Anderson made his return to TNA Wrestling yesterday during the live
Impact tapings, a month and a half after he was laid out by Bully Ray at
the end of their last man standing match at the No Surrender-themed
Impact. Andersons contract with TNA expired in the meantime which is why
they had to write him out of story lines but later Anderson confirmed in
an interview that he would be back as both parties were negotiating a new
contract. Mr. Anderson returned to save AJ Styles fro getting power bombed
through a table, attacking Bully Ray, but then Dixie Carter had him
> ARE ERIC BISCHOFF'S TNA DAYS COMING TO AN END?- PWInsider.com is reporting that Eric Bischoff was not at the Bound For
Glory pay-per-view and did not attend the Impact tapings yesterday, with
staff being informed that Bischoff would be working from home for TNA.
With Hogan out of the picture, this could very well be the beginning of
the end as well for Bischoff, who came with Hogan to TNA as a package.
Bischoff serves as an executive producer for TNA and helped with the
booking as well as the overall look of the show when it comes to filming.
It will be interesting to see if Hogan jumps to WWE whether Bischoff will
tag along for the ride as well.
> WWE DECLARES QUARTERLY DIVIDEND- WWE stocks kept performing good during trading day today, reaching
another 52-week high of 11.94 and closing just a few points down at 11.91.
The good run might end on October 31 when the company will announce the
third quarter earnings results and with WWE already lowering their rest of
2013 outlook, the numbers might be scary on Halloween. In related
financial news, the WWE Board of Directors today declared the regular
quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share for all Class A and B shares of
common stock. The record date for the dividend will be December 13, 2013,
and the payment date will be December 26, 2013.
