WWE Working with Filmmaker, Tensai Done as a Wrestler?, Ric Flair Signs New WWE Contract
– Lisa Marie Varon noted on Twitter that Matthew Goldberg of MBG Films has signed with WWE. No word yet what he’s signed for but his IMDB page says he’s a director, writer and cinematographer. He produced two short documentary projects for TNA on The Pope and Tara (Varon). His Twitter bio reads like this: “Award winning filmmaker specializing in live-action and stop-motion animation. Had documentary short films in Cannes 2012-13.” Eric Bischoff tweeted about the news:
“Anxious to hear more about @mbgfilms signing w @WWE. Matt is a great young man with the talent and determination to be a great asset.”
– It appears that Tensai is done as a wrestler for WWE, for the time being at least, and is being groomed for an announcers job. Besides working on NXT commentary lately, Tensai has been involved in all RAW and SmackDown pre-show and post-show trial runs that WWE has been doing for the Network recently.
– Ric Flair has signed a new contract with WWE. All of his appearances and business deals have to be cleared by WWE from here on out. Flair can be booked outside of WWE but in every deal, there is a clause that if WWE calls and needs him for anything, he has to cancel the other booking.
