Batista’s Attitude, Nathan Jones, More WWE News & Notes

Ryan Clark

The Undertaker vs. Batista Wrestlemania winning streak vs. the World Title match was the idea of Dusty Rhodes and writer Alex Greenfield. Vince McMahon gave the green light to the match back in September of last year.

Speaking of Batista, the title switch at Wrestlemania was a popular move backstage.

Former WWE superstars Nathan Jones, Todd Shane (Gymini) and developmental talent Ryan Reeves will be appearing in the movie “Som Tum,” which will be filmed in Bangkok. Jones will have a major role in the movie.

WWE Superstars and crew will embark on one of the longest European tours in the history of the company. The tour will take them to Germany, Austria, Wales, England, Italy and France for a total of 23 shows, with the majority – 12 events in 7 days – taking place in Italy. RAW, Smackdown! and ECW for the next two weeks will be taped in Milan and London. The next live WWE event in the United States is the Backlash pay-per-view on April 29th.

England’s Premiere League Chelsea FC manager Jose Mourinho will be missing out on the WWE tour in the UK next week after the controversial manager last week said that if his team loses in the semi-finals of the Champions League (soccer) he will be going to see WWE in London along with his family. His team won the match and the wrestling fan will have to wait for another tour to check out his favorite WWE Superstars. His comments about wrestling were covered in the Daily Mail newspaper and today again with the headline “Shame about the wrestling, Jose!” (thanks to Colin Vassallo)
