Upcoming WWE house shows are being built around Triple H vs. Umaga (with several cage matches), Randy Orton vs. Jeff Hardy, and Edge vs. Batista (with several ‘Last Man Standing’ matches).

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will start filming a remake of “Escape to Witch Mountain” in Las Vegas next month. The movie is slated to be released in March 2009. The movie is another Walt Disney Pictures film that’s going to be geared towards kids.

Rob Van Dam recently said during an appearance on the Joe McDonnell Experience radio show that he does not feel that WWE should be testing for marijuana. Van Dam said that when you are dealing with things such as anti-depressants or painkillers, weed should be the least of WWEâ<80><99>s worries. For those that do not remember, RVD was busted by police after he won the WWE Championship last year with Sabu smoking marijuana. If you fail a marijuana test in WWE you are not subject to suspension but are fined for the violation.

Lilian Garcia had a mishap during last nightâ<80><99>s Armageddon pay-per-view. According to fan reports, Lilian fell right before announcing Beth Phoenix as the winner of the WWE Womenâ<80><99>s Championship match against Mickie James. For those that do not remember, Lilian was injured at a live RAW taping in Pittsburgh back in June 2006 when Charlie Haas bounced her off of the ring apron.

SBT in Brazil has already begun carrying WWE programming.
