The Rock on Making Weight for Movie Shoot, Edge and Christian Preview for Tonight, WWE Stock

May 9, 2016 - by Marc Middleton

– There will be new episodes of both Camp WWE as well as the Edge and Christian Show following tonight’s RAW. Here is a video featuring E&C interviewing themselves:

– WWE stock was down 0.38% today, closing at $17.07 per share. Today’s high was $17.20 and the low was $16.80.

– The Rock is currently doing some hardcore training as he prepares to start filming Fast & Furious 8 in 18 days. He noted that he was 235-238 pounds for the recent Baywatch movie shoot, which wraps production this week, and weighed in today at 252 pounds today. He’s expecting to weigh in at 252-255 when he steps on the “Fast” set. Rock posted the following to Instagram today, also commenting on his Hobbs character in the movie:

Phenomenal week of hard training as I’m 18 days away from steppin’ on set for Fast & Furious 8. Should be fun.

The tricky part this whole time is I have a week left of shooting #BAYWATCH where the character was roughly 235-238lbs the entire shoot.
Today I tipped the scales at 252lbs. When I step on set for #Fast8 I’ll land somewhere between 252-255lbs. The shirtless scenes have all been shot for #BAYWATCH so with clothing Im able to cover up this final week of production.

For #Fast8 – after havin’ long chats with Universal and my good bud/director F. Gary Gray, the character of “Hobbs” has been hired to do three things: Raise the bar, dominate and destroy… and chew bubble gum. And Hobbs is always out of bubble gum. Thank you Rowdy One for that line.

A lot of you guys out there (many pro and amateur athletes as well) know how f’n challenging it is to dial in and “make weight” for a performance or contest. Not fun, but hopefully it becomes all worth it in the end when you achieve your goals. Respect.
In this case, Fast & Furious 8 will be my fourth rodeo with this franchise. The character has got to evolve – bad ass, focused, bounty hunter mentality and above all else – funny. In a winking way for the audience to enjoy. If there’s no character growth, then it’s over. And it ain’t ever over ’til Hobbs says it’s over.

I think that line needs to be in the movie;). Promise to do my best to deliver the goods.

Until then, we all keep makin’ it happen with hard ass work and our own two hands. While chewin’ bubble gum and drinkin’ some blue gorilla urine concoction that puts apparently puts hair on your chest. Yum.
