The former world heavyweight champion revealed that the character that Marvel gave him was Drax the Destroyer, which interestingly enough is portrayed by Batista in Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

There are movies out there that are so cheesy that they actually become cult classics. That appears to be the eventual fate of the Sharknado movie series. In case you haven't heard, it involves tornadoes launching killer sharks on to land to terrorize people. A third one is being made right now, and Chris Jericho is a cast member. He recently filmed scenes with Tara Reid, an actress whose popularity has sank tremendously. Kurt Angle was in the last one.
