– Chris Jericho wrote the following on Twitter yesterday after shooting for the new MacGruber movie: “Nailed my scene in MacGruber and even did some improv in it with fellow Groundling Will Forte…” and “Lorne Michaels just told me I did a good job and damn does he ever sound like Dr Evil… He’s an intimidating presence though!”
– In an interview with The Sun’s WrestleCast, WWE Superstar Kane once again teased a match with The Great Khali at the event (a match that has not yet been formally added to the Summerslam card). Kane, who expressed his enjoyment for working with smaller performers like Rey Mysterio, put over how wrestling a larger opponent gives him new challenges and opportunities in the ring. He also put over Dolph Ziggler, Ezekiel Jackson and John Morrison as new stars with the potential to breakout.
