- David Otunga discussed taking time off from WWE to film the movie ‘The Call’ during a recent interview with The Baltimore Sun. “It was definitely different. All I’ve done for the past three years is WWE non-stop. You get used to a certain way of life and certain things. I’m so busy on the road, I don’t get downtime, so now with the movie, for the first time in my life and in the past three years I had downtime and it was like I didn’t know what to do with myself. So, I might go to the gym and work out and I’d think now what, I don’t have to rush to the arena, I don’t have to drive to the next city. I got to relax my mind and my body, it was fun. When filming wrapped I was awfully excited to get back, it was cool, and it was the first time I had been away for a while. When I came back I was just ready to go, I was rejuvenated.” - WWE published an article about The Rock wanting to be part of the next Star Wars installment. - Chris Jericho will be at next Thursday’s NXT taping at Full S
