— The Rock will be hosting Saturday Night Live on November 10, marking the third time heâ<80><99>s hosted the show. NBC contacted him because they believe he has strong ratings power for their November sweeps. In a related note, Johnsonâ<80><99>s movie The Game Plan had another strong week, finishing in second place at the box office for a total of $59.5 million.

— Nicholas Cage is in talks to start in a movie tentatively titled â<80><9c>The Wrestlerâ<80>, which will be the story about an 80s wrestling star who turns to drugs and has a career ending heart attack in the middle of the ring. He takes a job at a deli and lives a normal life, but the lure of wrestling proves too much and he risks his life to make a comeback.

— You may have noticed that WWE has been cutting back on pyrotechnic displays on RAW lately, this was done to minimize the unpleasant foggy haze of smoke which fills the arena after the fireworks go off and lingers around for sometimes the entire length of the show.
