David Arquette Announces Wrestling Comeback:
Former WCW champ David Arquette — whose run is credited as one of the final nails in the coffin for the company — announced he’s making a wrestling return to put some respect on his name.
The 46-year-old actor made the announcement on the Wendy Williams Show while promoting the new Netflix documentary, “Survivors Guide to Prison.”
If that doesn’t excite you enough, the actor also says he’ll use the name David “Magic Man” Arquette.
Earlier this month, Pro Wrestling Sheet reported exclusive details on a marathon training session the former champ participated in. We were told at the time he was working on some sort of documentary and sources tell us the film is based around his return.
“For 18 years, I’ve been trolled on the internet and people have attacked me,” Arquette told Williams. “I just want to bring some respect back to my name.”

Arquette On Possibly Working For WWE:
TMZ caught up with Arquette, who was asked if he might work with WWE. Arquette had made an appearance on RAW in 2010 and teamed with Alex Riley to face Randy Orton in a handicap match, which resulted in Arquette being powerbombed through a table by Randy Orton.
“I love WWE. I’ve always been a fan of the McMahons and Vince and everything they’ve been doing over there, [but] it’s a real weird relationship with me and wrestling, ” Arquette said. “I’m just here to clear my name. People have been giving me a hard time for 18 years, and I’m sick of it. [People saying] that I didn’t deserve [the WCW World title]… put some respect on my name!”
