John Cena Wants To Play Vince McMahon In Upcoming Biopic

John Cena has his eye on the role of Vince McMahon if the much talked about biopic on the WWE Chairman’s life is produced.

Though the McMahon biopic has recently achieved some publicity, there’s still no guarantee it will be produced. Nevertheless, Cena reportedly had a chance to read the script, titled Pandemonium, and liked what he saw. He recently spoke about it on the Playback podcast with Variety.

“I love the story. The words jump off the page. I certainly know and admire the man, he’s literally one of my heroes. He’s a friend, a father a mentor. Whoever does that, they have a wonderfully crafted challenge in front of them. Because he is one of a kind.”

While Cena would certainly give the film some star power, if it were to be made, I can’t help but believe it would be a poor casting choice from a creative standpoint. One of the keys to a biopic being a success is having an actor playing the key role that allows the audience to become immersed in the film. The idea that anyone watching the film could be fully immersed while watching Cena play McMahon is a bit of a stretch. His face is far too associated with the world of wrestling. It’d be like having Tom Brady play Roger Goodell in a biopic of the NFL’s commissioner.

Will the McMahon biopic eventually be produced? It’s hard to say right now. Linda McMahon recently told GV Wire that she doesn’t think the film will see the light of day. However, it was announced last month that TriStar Pictures did acquire the rights to make the film, with the McMahon and WWE’s blessing.

You can listen to John Cena discuss the film on the Playback podcast in the player below. It starts at 27:30.

John Cena Says He’s Looking Forward to Facing Roman Reigns

0

While speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, John Cena was asked about Roman Reigns and possibly having a match against him in the future. Cena responded with the following:

“Roman is in the trenches every night and he’s performing at an elite level with a champion caliber attitude. His performance and the response that he gets from certain audiences is indicative of an elite-level performer. He’s doing what I did in 2006, 2007, and 2008. He has all the justification in the world in saying it’s his yard. I’ve made a career of shutting the mouths of people who’ve made that claim that WWE was their yard. I very, very much look forward to the day we put that to the test.”

4 Superstars Who Are About to Become Very Important to Smackdown

0

Ever since the Superstar Shakeup, Smackdown has struggled to find its footing. The loss of Dean Ambrose and the Miz was a particularly crippling one. Still, there are new, fresh faces on the roster. With the shift in the landscape, a few superstars will step up to the plate and move up the ladder. Here are four superstars who will become very important to the blue brand in the coming days.

4. Rusev

Rusev is one of the most underrated performers on the roster today. His character work is excellent, and he is surprisingly agile. He can cut a mean promo, and English might not even be his first language. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was, though, as he sounds so natural when he speaks.

Smackdown’s writing team built up Baron Corbin, who nobody liked at first. They made us care about Dolph Ziggler and the Miz. Luke Harper was almost made into a big deal. They made one of the best stories in 2016 with Heath Slater and Rhyno. There’s no reason they can’t do the same with Rusev.

The fact that he is demanding a title match at Money in the Bank at least shows some effort on WWE’s part. It makes him kind of seem like a big deal. It’s unlikely that we’ll get Rusev v. Mahal, so they’re probably just going to feed him to Orton, but it’s still something. After it all, Smackdown can build Rusev right back up. They can start right before his match with Orton, actually. He returns next week, so have him beat the hell out of Sin Cara. They can turn him into a viable contender in time. They’re doing it right now with Jinder Mahal. Expect big things from Rusev.

3. Baron Corbin

WWE is clearly high on Baron Corbin. He’s been obliterating his competition lately. He steamrolled through Apollo Crews, Kalisto, and Jack Swagger. He was in the Elimination Chamber. Heck, he doesn’t even eat the pin in triple threat matches.

There are big plans for Corbin, methinks. Many expect him to win Money in the Bank this year. It’s going to be a stacked match, with the likes of Sami Zayn and AJ Styles potentially competing in the match as well, but Corbin is still seen as the favorite in the match.

It’s not hard to see why. His mic work isn’t the best, but his moveset is pretty good. The End of Days and the Deep Six bring a nice amount of theatrics, which seems to be more important than it actually looking painful (see: the Spanish Fly). He also has the ability to hit these moves out of nowhere. He’s a surprisingly agile big man who understands who his character is supposed to be.

With Smackdown having the smaller roster, there are more opportunities afforded to everyone. Corbin has made the best of these opportunities. I wholly expect him to be holding gold in a year’s time.

Marty Scurll Newest Member Of Bullet Club; Kenny Omega Kicks Adam Cole To The Curb

0

If you caught tonight’s ROH War Of The Worlds, you witnessed The Villain Marty Scurll become the newest member of The Bullet Club. After Adam Cole’s match against Hiroshi Tanahashi, The Young Bucks came out to pretty much tell him good-bye with a group hug in the ring (Cole’s ROH contract ran out at the end of April, and tonight’s match is rumored to be his final one for the company). Suddenly, the lights went off, and Kenny Omega suddenly showed up on the screen at the top of the entrance ramp.

He fired Cole from The Bullet Club, and introduced Marty Scurll as the newest member. The lights in the arena came back on, Marty was in the ring, unveiled a new umbrella with the BC logo, and The Bucks hit a double Superkick on Cole to complete his exit from the faction.

If you’ve been keeping up with The Elite’s YouTube show, then you know that there is a back story to this. And, tonight, Marty got his vengeance on Cole, justice was served, and The Elite and BC have a very interesting new member…who is, in all honesty, a better fit with the group than Cole ever was.

This also means that Bullet Club now has representation in the upcoming NJPW Best Of The Super Juniors Tournament, which kicks off next Wednesday, May 17th. Now, all NJPW factions, Los Ingobernables de Japon, CHAOS, Bullet Club, and Taguchi Japan, have proper representation in the upcoming tournament.
