Back in 1996, Arnold Schwartzenegger had a surprising Christmas hit movie called Jingle All The Way, which is still shown every year on television. WWE Studios has secured the rights to the sequel and will begin production soon. The company has tabbed Santino Marella, a comedic performer on Monday Night Raw, as a lead character.
While it has been confirmed that he has signed a two year deal with the company, it now appears that Batista might not be around WWE for much of that time period. Aside from needing to promote Guardians of the Galaxy this fall, he will also now need time away to film the sequel to the movie, which was just announced this week.
While management has given up on the character, WWE will be keeping Sin Cara around because he is featured in the upcoming Scooby Doo movie. Oficials have no plan on bringing the original performer back, so Hunico will have the role until after the movie has been released.
"New Robo Cop movie!!!! Great opportunity to induct him in to the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame to cross promote his movie."
