- During a recent interview with IndyStar.com to promote "The Marine 3", The Miz revealed that his next movie role will be "The Christmas Bounty." The film begins filming in April and is due out this winter.
- Several movie news sites are reporting that former WWE Superstar Batista is still being considered for a major role in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" superhero movie that comes out in August 2014.
- Following last week's departure of creative team member Eric Pankowski, Vince McMahon was reportedly much more hands-on producing and scripting this week's RAW.
While there were a few factors that led to Pankowski's release, the straw that broke the camel's back was his decision to book last week's Fatal 4 Way match between Punk, Randy Orton, Sheamus and Big Show to determine The Undertaker's WrestleMania 29 opponent. Several people reportedly told him that it was a bad idea - but he went through with it anyways. Vince McMahon did ultimately sign off on that match, but that could have been his way of letting Pankowski's work speak for itself.
