What is “Attitude”? For countless members of the WWE Universe, the word is synonymous with the most contentious, chaotic and controversial time period in all of WWE history. But which Superstars truly defined The Attitude Era? Who can rightfully claim responsibility for WWE’s triumph over WCW in the so-called “Monday Night War” of the 1990s? Who gave Mr. McMahon more headaches, D-Generation X or “Stone Cold” Steve Austin?
Delving into the age of Stunners, five-second poses, marker-smeared sock puppets and eyebrow-raising behavior, WWE.com lists off the 20 icons who truly brought “Attitude” to The Attitude Era.
#2 The Rock
Everyone smelled what The Rock was cooking during The Attitude Era. The grandson of “High Chief” Peter Maivia and the son of Rocky Johnson, The Rock was seemingly destined for in-ring greatness from birth … but few could have anticipated the heights “The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment” would someday reach.
The smiling, tassel-wearing Rocky Maivia attracted a great deal of attention at Survivor Series 1996, where he was the sole survivor of his squad, and was applauded for his Intercontinental Championship victory over Triple H the following year. Despite his clean-cut appearance and positive outlook, it wasn’t until The Rock lashed out at the WWE Universe in frustration that crowds truly began to gravitate toward him.
It was that signature gift of gab that would not only cement The Rock as one of the most captivating in-ring performers in any era — Attitude or otherwise — but also a fixture in popular culture. The Brahma Bull’s clashes and begrudging partnership with Mankind as The Rock ‘N’ Sock Connection were endlessly entertaining, as was his persistent berating of Michael Cole, his affinity for fine lodging (the SmackDown Hotel, at the corner of Know Your Role Blvd. and Jabroni Drive) and his well-documented love of pie.
Pastries aside, The Rock wasn’t just a force on the mic, bringing to the ring unmatched intensity in classic bouts with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Triple H and even Hulk Hogan.
Liam Hemsworth, Zac Efron, Dwayne Johnson and the legendary Anthony Hopkins will soon be in Abu Dhabi
Actors Liam Hemsworth, Zac Efron, Dwayne Johnson and the legendary Anthony Hopkins will arrive in the UAE next March to shoot a Hollywood flick, it has been announced.
Hopkins will be the villain in the Chuck Russell film, Arabian Nights, a new screen adaptation of the Arabic classic.
“We have got the necessary approvals and we photography [will] begin in March,” said Mohammad Saeed Al Mazroui, president of Sky Events Management in Abu Dhabi.
Filming will take place in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
“The UAE has an incredibly beautiful nature which made it a spectacular venue for international actors and creators to use it whether as a leisure entertainment place or as a working place”, added Al Mazroui in a release.
Russell’s filmography includes A Nightmare on Elm Street 3, The Mask, The Scorpion King and Eraser.
Arabian Nights will have a budget of approximately $90 million (Dh330 million) and is expected to hit theatres in late 2013 or early 2014.
Originally Russell said the film would be shot in Kazakhstan and it is unclear whether the UAE has been added as a location or whether filming has been moved entirely.
Produced by Mayhem Pictures and distributed by FilmDistrict, Arabian Nights is billed as a hybrid of action, drama, and adventure and with Sky Events Management serving as executive producer. The story will follow a young commander who joins forces with Sinbad (Johnson) to save Scheherazade and her kingdom from dark powers. Hemsworth is rumoured to be playing the character of Ali Baba.
When he announced the project last year, Russell said he planned to use “state-of-the-art 3D technology to give audiences a carpet ride like they’ve never seen before”.
It doesn’t take much for The Great One to electrify the WWE Universe, which makes his entrance stand out from the pack. From the moment his catchphrase “If ya smellllll … what The Rock is cookin’” echoes throughout the arena, all eyes are on The Brahma Bull. (WATCH)
The Rock walked down the aisle with more swagger than all of your favorite rappers, stopping to survey the situation before he headed up the steps into the ring. The People’s Champion would then make a beeline for the ring post, climbing to the top rope and simply raising his arm, sending the millions and millions of his fans into a frenzy.
The Great One then walked to the opposite corner, once again thrusting his fist into the sky, as flashbulbs lit up the ring with his fans trying to capture the perfect image of their hero. Clearly, The Rock’s entrance played a huge part in his earning the nickname “The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment.”
Dwayne Johnson to star in revisionist version of Greek tale
By Justin Kroll
Paramount Pictures has come on board to co-produce the MGM action movie “Hercules” starring Dwayne Johnson.
Helmed by Brett Ratner and based on the Radical Studio’s graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” the pic is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.
The screenplay was adapted by Ryan Condal, with revisions by Evan Spiliotopoulos. Producers are Beau Flynn, Barry Levine and Brett Ratner.
The studio has grown fond of the WME and The Garcia Companies-repped Johnson with “Hercules” marking the third project the studio and Johnson have worked on in the last year.
Other projects include Michael Bay’s “Pain and Gain” starring Mark Wahlberg and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” both of which are slated to bow next year.
MGM emerged in December 2010 from a pre-packaged bankruptcy and secured a distribution and co-financing partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment, which includes the films “Carrie,” “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” “21 Jump Street” and “Skyfall.”
Warner Bros. is partnered with MGM on the three upcoming “Hobbit” films, with WB assuming MGM’s share of producing costs in exchange for taking over the international and homevid distribution of the films from MGM. The Lion is partnered with Paramount on “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.”
