NXT GETTING SOME RKO, UPDATE ON HORNSWOGGLE'S WWE MOVIE, WWE STAR GETS NEW YORK METS-INSPIRED GEAR AND MORE WWE NEWS

If anyone is attending the panel discussions at the Royal Rumble Fanfest this weekend, we are seeking reports.

WWE Studios President Michael Luisi was interviewed by Crave Online while at the Sundance Film Festival, discussing a number of the Studios' projects.  The most notable thing was that the Leprechaun reboot, which I believe was expected to be shooting by now, is still in the scripting phase as they work out a story.  Luisi noted that Warwick Davis, who originally played the title character, could appear for a cameo.  Hornswoggle will be taking over the title role.  Luisi said it would be a completely darker reboot.  Luisi teased that Rock could at some point do a WWE Studios film and that a future Blu-Ray release of "No Holds Barred" was not out of the question.    To read the interview, click here.

Randy Orton is booked for the 2/21 WWE NXT taping in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University. 

The guest this week on Colt Cabana's The Art of Wrestling podcast is WWE star Hornswoggle.  You can check it out, and you should, at www.WeLoveColt.com.

www.The7Line.com, which does New York Mets-based clothing (think BarbershopWindow.com for Baseball) featured some new tights that they designed for WWE star Curt Hawkins.  Thanks to my brother Mark for sending that along (I think I probably should have ended up with that first name, not him.)

WWE has added La Parka to their Alumni section of WWE.com.
