Credit:WWE.com Congratulations are in order for one special member of the WWE Universe! WWE Studios has announced Mason A. Norman – a passionate WWE fan – has received a part in their upcoming film "The Marine: Homefront" with The Miz. Norman, 23, of Highland Falls, N.Y., a sergeant in the United States Army Reserve, auditioned for the role during an open casting call at WrestleMania Axxess during WrestleMania XXVIII Week in Miami. "The Thursday before Wrestlemania XXVIII, I read online about the auditions," Norman told WWE.com in an email interview. "I knew then that it was something I would have to try out for. It was like a golden opportunity." "I was practicing in my bathroom mirror and just trying to mentally prepare myself for it. When I got to Axxess and saw 'The Marine: Homefront' station, I took a deep breath, got in line and said to myself, 'It’s now or never!' After the audition, Norman wasn’t extremely confident he would get the part, but a few weeks later he was contacted by a representative of WWE Studios requesting a follow-up interview. Instead, he was told that he had been selected for the role. He said "words can’t explain" what he felt when he heard the good news from WWE Studios via a Skype call with The Miz. "To quote 'Iron' Mike Tyson during his WWE Hall of Fame speech, 'Gratitude is what I’m trying to convey!' " Norman said. “Anyone who knows me knows I love WWE. And to think that WWE even knows I exist is utterly amazing. I felt like when I was a kid and woke up Christmas morning and unwrapped 'WWE No Mercy' for the Nintendo 64. I felt like when I was 9 years old and attended my first WWE live event. More than anything, I felt blessed." He first shared the news with a very important woman in his life – his mother, who raised him as a single parent. She was on speakerphone during The Miz's call. "She busted her butt and bent over backward to make sure I could grow up on the right path," Norman said. "My greatest motivation in life is to make her proud. Whether it’s my military career, completing college or any obstacle I face, making her smile is what drives me." While Norman’s only acting credits include starring in his high school’s spring play, he said he can accomplish anything he devotes himself to – even the part he’ll film with The Miz in WWE Studios’ "The Marine: Homefront."

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter Sources close to Alex Shelley report that he did receive phone calls from WWE recently but reports of him signing with WWE or even agreeing to terms are said to be premature. The same sources say that Shelley allowing his TNA contract to expire had nothing to do with WWE. Shelley's original plans when deciding to leave TNA were to work for New Japan Pro Wrestling and maybe Dragon Gate USA. WWE did recently show interest and he was not expecting that to happen when he let his TNA deal expire. Shelley had been working on a deal with New Japan for some time and was apparently close to signing it when WWE called.
