- It is rumored that CM Punk and Paul Heyman are pushing to work together at some point down the line. It will be an uphill battle however because Vince and co are sour on Heyman and don’t like to give him the credit he deserves. As of now he’s still working on a per appearance basis and doesn’t have a full contract.

- In a recent interview with ZOO Magazine Kurt Angle revealed his plans to progress in to acting after wrestling:

“That’s what I plan on doing after wrestling. I’ve had a few movies. Last year I did Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night, with the producers of Men In Black and Superman Returns. I co-starred with Brandon Routh, but it didn’t do as well as they hoped. Right now, I’ve been in five big motion picture movies and hoping, God willing, it turns into something bigger where I can do a lot more acting. There is only one Dwayne Johnson, but then again there is only one Kurt Angle.”
