— Ted DiBiase, Jr. was recently interviewed by the Peoria Journal-Star and was asked whether slapping his father on national television several weeks ago was the hardest thing he’s had to do yet in WWE. “Not at all. I’ve been waiting to slap my dad in the face for a long time. I loved it (laughs),” DiBiase said. “Yeah, I guess afterward I may have felt a little guilty, but it wasn’t too hard.” The slap came after the Million Dollar Man booked his son to face fellow legacy member, WWE Champion Randy Orton.

— Chris Jericho will be appearing in the upcoming “MacGruber” feature film based on a popular recurring Saturday Night Live sketch. SNL cast member Will Forte stars as MacGruber, a takeoff on the popular 1980s television show MacGyver. IMDB.com calls the MacGruber character “a bumbling secret agent whose lack of skill and abundance of personal problems serve as a detriment to him — and those around him.” Hollywood heavyweights Val Kilmer and Ryan Phillippe will also have roles in the film, which is currently filming in New Mexico. Chris Jericho just wrote on Twitter, “Chilling in my trailer on set preparing for my scene…lion face lemon face lion face lemon face.”
