Terminator reboot tipped with The Rock in tow (and Arnie)

Viewers of the most current iteration of the professional wrestling organization known as the WWE have been wondering, it would seem, why The Rock (aka Dwayne Johnson) wasn't slated to meet any contenders at their next big Pay-Per-View engagement. As it turns out - and so it has been tipped - The Rock may instead be taking on Arnold Schwarzenegger - though not in the ring so much as right up on the big screen, complete with robot killing machines to make the mix all the more exciting.
