Video: Kane Reveals He's Starring In WWE Movie with Dolph Ziggler, New Plot Details

– Dolph Ziggler isn’t the only WWE Superstar starring in WWE Studios’ upcoming “6:42” thriller. In the video above, Kane reveals that he also is in the movie. WWE also posted these details on the plot:

“Ray Fitzpatrick (WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler) is a tough as nails narcotics cop working the beat in Los Angeles. After a drug bust goes wrong, Ray is forced to shoot his own partner, leading to his suspension from the police force. Before you know it, Ray is dragged right back into the thick of it when a mysterious package arrives at the station addressed to him.

The package leads Ray and his colleagues to an encrypted website where an unidentified kidnapper broadcasts a threat to Ray and the entire police force. The kidnapper, it turns out, is holding a young boy hostage and unless the police department can come up with a $2 million ransom, he’ll set off a time-bomb strapped to the child’s chest.

The department, led by Lt. Cronin (WWE Superstar Kane) comes up with the payoff and Ray is tasked as the bagman. When the handover goes down, Ray is forced to shoot and kill the kidnapper before he can set off the bomb and kill the child.

With 6 hours and 42 minutes left before the timed explosive detonates, Ray and Internal Affairs agent Julia Baker (Katharine Isabelle from “See No Evil 2″) race against time to find the now deceased kidnapper’s hidden lair and save the child before it’s too late.”

Backstage News on TNA Filming Segments with Bigfoot at the Recent Impact Wrestling Tapings

– We noted in our July 31st TNA Impact Wrestling spoiler report that there was a segment with Jeremy Borash trying to interview a man in a Bigfoot costume, only to have Bigfoot run away, come back and start dancing. There was another segment later on where a top TNA star was revealed to be in the Bigfoot costume, indicating that it was part of an actual angle.

Bryan Alvarez of F4Wonline.com says a TNA source told him that the entire Bigfoot skit as a promotional deal for Destination America, who has a show about Bigfoot. He added that this could be wrong but the segment was apparently filmed for Destination America and will never be seen on TNA TV. However, the second part of the spoiler report where a top TNA star was revealed to be under the suit gives the impression that we may be seeing it on TV.

"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Honored By Madison Square Garden (Photo), Madusa Talks Monster Truck Racing

“Rowdy” Roddy Piper – one of the all-time great performers @TheGarden and friend to us all. You will be missed. pic.twitter.com/tDI37tGsDf

— MSG (@TheGarden) August 3, 2015

– Madusa, who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in April as Alundra Blayze, discussed her career in monster truck racing in an interview with Florida newspaper Sun-Sentinel. She explained her transition from the wrestling ring to the race track.

“While I was retiring from wrestling, I was going to be happy and doing other things I wanted to do, and I got a call from Monster Jam, and they asked if I wanted to drive a monster truck,” she said. “They didn’t have any women, and they wanted a crowd promotion, and hopefully I’d bring little girls over and that was the goal. I am a huge advocate for women and helping them out, transitioning, getting them where they need to be, helping, counseling, guiding.”

She continues, “[Monster Jam] expected me to be around for maybe a year or two, if that. And here I am 16 years later, two-time champion, and no other woman has ever hit that pinnacle. I wish they would! I need another woman here to brag with me. (laughs)”
