Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno ThueWednesdayrsday night. Johnson talked about his new film “Get Smart” and they showed a clip of Johnson stapling a piece of paper to a guy’s head. He spoke about phasing out “The Rock” name and Jay acknowledged that he’s probably the most famous “Dwayne” in the world. Johnson told a few stories, including a recent one about a drunk woman sneaking onto the set of his new movie “Escape from Witch Mountain” and trying to kiss him while the cameras were rolling. He also talked about being on a private jet that was shaking violently before taking off. He was relieved to hear that the plane was a former Air Force Two (used by the First Lady of the United States) but then was alarmed to learn the First Lady who used it was Nancy Regan, over 20 years ago. Leno asked Johnson his favorite TV shows were and he answered Americas Most Wanted, Extreme Home Make Over and Family Guy.

Last month, Torrie Wilson asked to be released from her contract, and the company fulfilled her request, reports prowrestling.NET. WWE was looking to feature her in a non-wrestling role by having her do special appearances for the company. A source speculated her desire to leave WWE was likely a combination of her wanting to be more involved with clothing business and to not have to deal with travel anymore. As noted earlier, surgeons advised her not to wrestle due to her back problems. It is believed that WWE covered the cost of her recent back surgery as well as some of the rehab expenses.
