The Wrap featured a piece on The Miz and Maryse relocating to Texas, in part because of a Hollywood tourist tour bringing fans to their home at this link.  Miz explained that there were attempted break-ins and referred to the house as a “safety concern.” 

Dwayne Johnson’s next film Jungle Cruise will be released theatrically on 10/11/19, it was announced today.  The film based on the iconic Disney ride of the same name will feature Johnson as the captain of a small riverboat that takes a group of travelers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals and reptiles.  Emily Blunt and Jesse Plemons will also star in the film.  Johnson is also working with Disney on updating their classic Jungle Cruise ride (which has existed as long as Disneyland has) to coincide with the film.
