– Last month, CM Punk and his wife, AJ Mendez (aka AJ Lee), were announced for Rabid, a new horror movie that is a remake of the 1977 David Cronenberg movie of the same name.
The movie is being written and directed by The Soska Twins, who directed WWE Studios’ Vendetta (2015 film starring Big Show) and See No Evil 2 (2014 movie starring Kane). The movie will star Laura Vandervoort and Ben Hollingsworth with Punk and Mendez in supporting roles. Punk plays a character named “Billy” while Mendez plays a character named “Kira.”
On Saturday, Mendez posted a photo of herself in character on the set of Rabid.
Meet Kira and her resting douche face. Just got to shoot my part in the @SoskaSisters horror movie #Rabid! I am in awe of what brilliant, hilarious, loving, talented leaders Jen and Sylv Soska are. It was an honor to be a teeny part of a project with female writers/directors, a female director of photography, female camera operators, a badass female lead, and a story showcasing a ride or die female friendship. I am beyond inspired and my heart is full of joy. Even though I look suuuper pissed.
– Title Match Wrestling released a clip last week from a shoot interview that Virgil did in May 2003. During the clip, the former WWE Superstar gets upset with the interviewers’ questions and asks for more money.
Speaking of Virgil, here’s a photo he posted on Friday of himself with actor and wrestling fan Ken Jeong.
We are best friends. We are comrades, we have the same barber, we both love olive garden, we have the same interest. We are doppelgängers. We have been told we are identical twins. We have been told that we both are equally the greatest humans ever. We both don’t have life insurance. We both love wrestling. We both think I am incredible. We are brothers…4 life. He is my crazy rich Asian friend. We are basically the exact same person except my hog is 80 times bigger. @kenjeong xoxo
