Even though he remains quite focused on his movie career, John Morrison has been gaining a reputation on the independent wrestling circuit as quite the asset. He handles himself professionally and is a pretty good draw at these shows. That is how the former WWE star has been able to consistently get booked across the country.

For the last few weeks, John Morrison has been in Morocco working on a movie about Hercules, where the former WWE star is playing the lead role.

In yet another sign that Batista might never return to WWE, the big guy is restructuring his contract with Marvel Studios. The company wants to pay him more money after the success of Guardians of the Galaxy. In addition to being signed for the sequel, Batista is also expected to be part of the cast of the third Avengers movie. With a whole lot more money in his pockets, the former world heavyweight champion may decide to retire from professional wrestling altogether.
September 9, 2014
Since his movie career has taken off thanks to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, the widespread belief in the industry is that Batista is unlikely to return to WWE beyond a special appearance. During a recent interview, the former world heavyweight champion hinted that he would be a bit more inclined to return if management gave him more creative control over his character and story line.
September 2, 2014
The value of the WWE audience has taken yet another hit. There is already a good amount of advertisers who are avoiding the company because they do not feel that the demographics is desirable. Reports are now surfacing that Marvel purposely declined to advertise their Guardians of the Galaxy movie to the WWE audience, even though Batista could have drawn in some of the fans to the film. Since the studio was not interested, WWE opted to avoid promoting the movie, even though it could have benefited them internally.
August 27, 2014
Initially, the belief was that Batista would make a return to WWE after he was done promoting Guardians of the Galaxy. However, reports are now surfacing that he could be completely done with professional wrestling. The belief is that the movie studios are against the idea of him risking injuries by being an in ring performer again. Batista could have no choice but to comply since he wants his career in Hollywood to keep growing.

The relationship between Hulk Hogan and WWE has been further extended, as the former world heavyweight champion is now going to be involved in a movie for the company.

For those wondering about the final segment of Monday Night Raw this week, it was designed to write Dean Ambrose off of television. There were speculations that he was going to need time off to film a movie for WWE Studios, but the initial belief was that he would not need to miss television time. It now appears that the company is just going to take him off the road, so he can focus on filming.
August 19, 2014
When it was announced that Dean Ambrose was going to be starring in an upcoming WWE Studios movie, the belief was that he was going to need to take some time off to film his part. It looks like the former United States Heavyweight Champion might only be missing the live events, as management still wants him around on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown to further his feud with Seth Rollins.
August 16, 2014
Since Hercules has been deemed a bit of a disappointment, there are talks that the Rock might miss out on some opportunities in Hollywood. Rumors have it that the WWE legend is not all that concerned. His popularity has not taken that big of a hit, and it should increase when the next Fast and Furious movie is released. Studios are still interested in the Rock as a leading man.
August 15, 2014
While the movie did not dominate in the United States as the studios had hoped, Hercules has done well overseas. Rock has now informed the fans that the movie has topped the box offices in India, Russia and Australia. The movie has generated almost the same amount from international viewers as it has domestic ones. There's still talks that the movie might barely break even for the studios, which would definitely not be a good sign for the Rock.
August 9, 2014
There are rumors floating around that Batista might not actually return to WWE after all. Guardians of the Galaxy has been quite successful, and the second movie has already been signed. Batista is already attached to the Kickboxer remake. He may come back to WWE for one more appearance, but the risk of being injured in the wrestling ring might not make much sense any more to a Hollywood star.
August 8, 2014
After 17 years of portraying the character, Kane might be receiving a new gimmick soon. Rumors have been floating around that he might be bringing the Jacob Goodnight character from the See No Evil movie series to WWE television. The belief is that management wanted to make it easier to promote the film. Some feel that the story line started when Kane handed over his mask to Stephanie McMahon on the last episode of Monday Night Raw.
August 7, 2014
It looks like Randy Orton still has a bit of the acting bug. The WWE star informed his fan through Twitter that he was working on a deal to star in another movie. Orton also revealed that they were in the early stages, so he cannot provide much details at the moment. Once the film starts production, it is expected that the former world heavyweight champion will miss some television time for WWE.
August 6, 2014
Since it has now been revealed that there are talks of having the superheroes from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie making an appearance in a future Avengers movie, that means that WWE might have a representative in a film that is expected to be seen by millions of people worldwide. Batista has a very good chance of being cast in the movie, and that would help to bring a lot of exposure for WWE.
August 2, 2014
Some potentially bad news for the Rock. His new Hercules movie is struggling at the box office. During it's second weekend in the theaters, sales dropped by approximately 70 percent. There are talks that the movie might barely break even, minus the the huge cost of advertising. The budget for the film was around $100 million, so the Rock's drawing power might take a bit of a hit.

July 8, 2014
There are a lot of rumors going around right now about John Morrison making his return to WWE in the near future. The speculations stem from an article that was on the official WWE website that listed performers who could replace Seth Rollins in the Shield.

"If Miz and Morrison never happened, I truly believe that I would have been fired within a year. I think being with Morrison really gave me the opportunity to take risks. It gave me the opportunity to really stand tall in our realm. When we created a thing called The Dirt Sheet, which… Back then, YouTube was just getting going with its popularity. WWE now has its own YouTube channel. It didn't have its own YouTube Channel. It didn't have those internet shows. We were the first. So we kind of became originals and we were doing those sorts of things that were going against the grain because we wanted to get noticed. I think Morrison pushed me and I pushed Morrison to really do the best that we possibly can. We brought the best out of each other, is what I thought."
