Ronda Rousey in Carl’s JR Commercial 

 You may remember sometime last month we did a story on Ronda Rousey landing an endorsement deal with global fast food chain Carl’s Jr & Hardee’s 

The newest commercial promoting the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast Breakfast Sandwich features clips of the champ sparing in the ring, then clips of her eating the sandwich causing her to smile with glee. The tag line for the sandwich is “The knockout sandwich with a sweet side”

What makes the ad all the more awesome is that you have the voice of the octagon Bruce Buffer doing his infamous Ronda Rousey introduction.

Haven’t seen the commercial yet? Never fear because you can do so here:

Jeff Jarrett Talks Finding GFW TV Deal, Streaming The Show, Working With TNA

Global Force Wrestling founder Jeff Jarrett talked to RVA MAG recently about finding a TV deal.

Finding a TV deal for GFW:

“We are making moves. It’s been a real challenge for us to line up a domestic situation as well as international deals. I’m heading over to London in a couple of weeks to further those moves. The first set of tapings were great. We got plenty of one hour episodes and we’ve got the crowning of the champions in October. With that and the Grand Slam tour as well, it’s been no rest for the weary, but it’s exciting time in the still the very early days of Global Force Wrestling.”

Possibly airing on Netflix or Hulu:

“All of the above and I don’t want to specifically say Netflix or Hulu. The world of 2015 is so interesting. You wouldn’t be asking that question even, what would you say, two or three years ago? It’s interesting just how everyone consumes their information. Not just wrestling or television. Your phone is a source of news, entertainment, games, apps. It’s just a different world. I’ve said it for a year now: my goal is if you’re a GFW fan, you’ll have access to watch it all across the globe. There’s a huge component to that. I won’t call it streaming, but there’s a big component in the online world for Global Force.”

Working with TNA again:

“You know, it’s a business. My family’s been in this business for over 70 years so I’ve seen a lot of situations where you’d say those folks would never work together again and they did. Business is business and when it’s a win-win-win-a win for our promotion, a win for their promotion, and more importantly, a win for the wrestling fan – it’s really hard not to do a deal. So we put a lot of things in the past and in our rear view mirrors on both sides and moved forward. It’s a pretty exciting time. All the positive momentum that’s coming from the working relationship between TNA and GFW is just a great thing.”

WWE Diva Emma Gets Tricky 

I’m all for Heels and faces within the world of wrestling but sometimes breaking Kayfabe is a great thing. Especially for real moments like this one

WWE diva Emma (real name Tanille Dashwood) has a niece and that niece is non other then YouTube sensation Riley Dashwood. Emma may be known as a heel currently but there’s never a bad time to bring back the Emmalution

In the video below you can see Emma and her niece lip syncing to the song Tricky. I promise it’ll make you smile
