- WWE are cashing in on the return of Brock Lesnar by re-releasing the 2003 DVD “Brock Lesnar: Here Comes the Pain”. The updated set will hit stores on October 30th:
The night after WrestleMania XXVIII, Brock Lesnar made a shocking return to the ring and leveled John Cena with an F-5, sending a message that after 8 years, the pain is back. In 2002 & 2003, “The Next Big Thing” brought it to the biggest & baddest competition in WWE, becoming the youngest WWE Champion of all time, and a household name overnight. His awe-inspiring physique, amateur championship pedigree and affinity for punishing opponents made him an unstoppable force in the ring.
Now, after years of dominating the MMA scene, Brock is back and looking to steamroll the biggest Superstars of today. This DVD set includes the original 2003 documentary ‘Here Comes The Pain’ plus 30 minutes of new interview footage, and 6 hours of matches not included in the original DVD. Featuring classic matches against Hulk Hogan, Undertaker, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio & more, plus Brock’s controversial comments upon his return to sports entertainment!

- WWE have officially reprimanded Tensai for an out of script video he made on Tout telling fans it was “very, very dangerous to drive with a Japanese person,” before slapping his Japanese manager Sakamoto and telling him to open his eyes.

WWE issued the following satement:
“While in character, Lord Tensai (Matt Bloom) clearly took his storyline too far and he will be reprimanded for his inappropriate comments.”
All this being said it’s not clear what this supposed reprimand will conists of.
