– As reported earlier this week, The Rock was surprised by Japanese wrestling legend The Great Muta in Japan while doing promotional work for Hercules. PopWrecked.com has published exclusive photos from the event featuring The Rock and Muta together.

– Bobby Lashley returns to the MMA cage tonight on Spike TV for Bellator MMA. Lashley (11-2) is scheduled to fight Karl Etherington (9-0). This will be Lashley’s second fight for Bellator following his successful debut against Josh Burns on September 5.

The heavyweight fight is billed as the semi-main event event of the evening, with a Light Heavyweight Title fight between Emanuel Newton and Linton Vassell headlining the show.

Lashley spoke to Sherdog.com this week about TNA giving him time off to train:

“Right now I’ve been off for some time with TNA,” Lashley said. “We did a huge taping the last time I was there, and that was before my last fight. That’s gonna take us all the way into the New Year. So I haven’t been doing any pro wrestling. I’ve just been training for my fight.”
