Vince McMahon said at the shareholders meeting on Friday that he is working with The Rock on a handshake agreement. Vince said he and Rock have operated that way for a long time. Regarding WrestleMania, Vince also noted that The Rock will get a part of growth above what they are projecting. Partial source: F4Wonline

Does this mean no offical contract and just a 'handshake agreement' as it was put?

I doubt it, but its nice to see that things are going in the right direction concerning The Rock and next year's WM.

First if Rock cops out of the match I for one will be pissed because I want to see the thing live.
 
Second I just found out he will be doing another book he announced it on twitter.
 
I have very little doubt that this will be the most electrifying book in all of fictional entertainement.

to follow on from working through his match with Cena with an injury, the latest Rock shennanigans:
 
 
now, how serious to actually take this - the source is The Sun after all - but it sounds fucking hilarious:
 

While filming scenes for Fast 6 over in London, Dwayne Johnson reportedly witnessed a pair of hooded would be thieves attempting to break into a warehouse. I say "would be" because upon seeing this, Rock took off running at them while waving his fake badge around (he plays a cop in the movie) in full battle fatigues.

The assailants, scared shitless, took off running and escaped on foot.

A source said: "It was so funny. The Rock looked like an action hero because he had his flak jacket on and an FBI badge in his hand. All of a sudden there was loads of gunfire and this giant dressed as a copper was about to mow them down. The lads jumped out of their skin and scarpered down the canal path and left the crew in peace.

When the story came out, Rock answered on his Twitter by saying, "I plead the 5th."

Thankfully it's not just a bullshit Sun fantasy, because every news outlet ran with it.

Love the story.

yeah, i posted it literally 10 minutes before it came up on Raw, although technically that was around 40 minutes after it had been shown.
 
i was roughly an hour behind, but was catching up by FFing the breaks and the Divas match...

In all fairness to the crooks, I'd shit my pants and run too if The Rock was running at me. Dude is jacked as shit.

http://www.cagesideseats.com/2012/9/6/3296144/the-rock-set-to-star-in-reality-television-series-the-hero
bit confused by this, unless things are different in the states in relation to Reality tv.
 
over here, it's seemingly the last resort to try and gain publicity when a career is floundering so badly.  Rock is currently filming Fast 6, has a massive programme coming up in WWE, and is seemingly not in desperate need of publicity.
 
i know in America, you get more crap like the Kardashians, and washed up singers/actors like Mandy Simpson and people like that doing shows, people who either have no career, or had one and now no longer do, so not sure why this is being done.
 
anyway, the show:
 
Quote The Hero will bring 10 ordinary people together in a house and then assign them various missions that will test their brains, their brawn and even their morality. The show will challenge the competitors to prove they've got what it takes to be heroes, pushing them to the limits to see what they are willing (and able) to overcome, undergo or sacrifice for the sake of their fellow contestants. Johnson will serve as The Hero‘s mentor and motivator, encouraging the contestants to reach far beyond their personal limits. In the end, one player will rise above the others, overcoming obstacles he/she never thought possible in order to become a true hero.
 
In a unique twist on the reality-competition format, The Hero will incorporate social media into every facet of the show, from pre-production and casting to on-location shooting and live broadcasts. Through the show's interactive digital platform, viewers will be able to vote each week for the contestant they consider to be the most heroic. The series will also leverage the power of Johnson's enormous social-media following, which includes more than 10 million fans through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
 
even as a host - which is what i'm assuming he'll be because of it saying 10 ordinary people - this feels like a step down to me.

I guess they shelled out enough buckeroos for him, only reason there possibly is.

Nevertheless, sounds like a WWE brainfart to me...
