Reigns & Cena Go To Hollywood
Two different Hollywood happenings for two of WWE’s biggest stars. The latest trailer for Hobbs & Shaw dropped and shows Roman Reigns in what will be his biggest acting role to date. He plays a relative of The Rock’s Luke Hobbs character, and even does his trademark taunt in the trailer.
Get that popcorn and tequila out again, cause we're back with our second WORLDWIDE @HobbsAndShaw trailer.
The biggest and baddest showdown of the summer hits AUGUST 2nd.

Furthermore, John Cena may be up for a superhero role. According to Variety, he’s in talks to join the next Suicide Squad installment. This would be a huge role for Cena and would continue to boost him higher in the Hollywood pecking order.
Banks Unhappy With Recent Direction
Sasha Banks has reportedly been given some time off to consider her future after she tried to quit WWE following her recent booking. According to Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t to Cageside Seats), Banks wanted to quit after dropping the tag team titles at Wrestlemania 35 to the IIconics. The pair being split during the Superstar Shakeup also did not help.
This continues reports of Banks & Bayley being upset with their booking. They’ve reportedly been upset in the hotel after Wrestlemania 35, and Banks pulled out of an appearance on Wendy Williams at the last second last week. Of course, how this will unfold for Banks is still anyone’s guess.
