– As reported recently, Raw wrestler Ted DiBiase, Jr. has been filming scenes for WWE’s next straight-to-DVD movie, The Marine 2. The film is scheduled to be released sometime in 2010. WWE CEO Linda McMahon said at today’s UBS Conference in New York City that filming is taking place in Thailand. McMahon did not say when DiBiase will return to television after filming has completed. McMahon also noted the first Marine movie, starring John Cena, as the company’s most successful film to date.

– Mickie James has posted a poem on the WWE Universe site entitled Taking Flight. The poem comes off a bit cryptic at times with the following stanzas:
Besides… I am so tired of flying. My wings ache… No one truly
knows how I long to land. I cant.. No! I won’t let them… But its all
I’ve ever really wanted.
This time… I will not land in a trap. Only to be put on display
as if I were a trophy piece
