The Rock has started yet another new job on Monday. He noted on Twitter that he has started shooting a television show called Wake Up Call for TNT, which seems to deal with interventions and helping people turn their lives around.
A new book, being done in comic form, about WWE legend Andre the Giant is expected to be released early in 2014.
Now that he is back on good terms with the company after the incident at Summerslam 2013 that cost Jim Ross his job, Ric Flair is being heavily rumored to join the stacked episode of Monday Night Raw on February 24, the same night that WWE Network launches. He will be needed to help promote WCW and NWA content on the network.
In order to sell his big match at Wrestlemania 3 against Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant was promoted as having an undefeated streak that stretched over fifteen years. Gorilla Monsoon heavily sold that fact as well. However, he had actually been beaten a few times in other countries during that time period.
After the eight grade, Andre the Giant decided to drop out of school, as the future WWE legend did not believe that an education was needed in order to be a farmer.
At just the age of 17, Andre the Giant moved from Grenoble to Paris to start training for professional wrestling. He hit the mats at night, while working as a mover during the day to pay his bills.
Andre the Giant was 6'3" and 240 pounds by the time he was 12 years old.
