Chris Jericho and his Dancing With the Stars partner Cheryl Burke will be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. Check your local listings for the airings today in daytime.

Fast Five with The Rock opened this past Thursday in Australia and was a huge hit. One out of three people in Australia who went to the movies on Thursday went to see the movie, earning $2.4 million in one night. It will open here in the United States this week.

WWE developmental star Seth Rollins, the former Tyler Black, was asked by a fan what he thinks about WWE not wanting to be referred to as a professional wrestling company. Rollins replied with the following: “I think you have to understand the idea of it. I was skeptical at first too, but it’s all a marketing scheme. When push comes to shove WWE will always be professional wrestling, but they are branching out and doing so much more nowadays that the word “wrestling” really pigeonholes the brand…so eliminating the word expands the brand and creates many new avenues to go down.”
