Jason LaBarbera is sporting the copper and blue of the Edmonton Oilers for the upcoming 2013-14 NHL season.
With the new start comes a fresh new mask design containing some familiar elements. The NHL’s biggest Wrestling and Rock ‘n’ Roll fan will be paying homage to both of these on this year’s mask.
Upon hearing LaBarbera was joining a new team and getting a new paint job for his mask, CM Punk called both LaBarbera and myself out over Twitter asking to be included. I for one was not going to be the person telling CM Punk otherwise.
With CM Punk featured on one side of the mask, the other side is guarded by the lead of Metallica, Sir James Hetfield. The images are my caricature renditions of these celebs.

Warner Bros and WWE Studios are tag-teaming to co-produce a Flintstones animated movie to be released in early 2015. Here, fixtures of the ’60s Hanna-Barbera cartoon including Fred and Barney will be joined by WWE staples including Vince McMagma (voiced by Vince McMahon) and such WWE superstars and divas including John Cenastone (John Cena) and CM Punkrock (CM Punk). They will take part in a prehistoric WWE main event.
Considering the cartoon’s love for all things named for all things geological, it seems a glaring absence not to have Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson here, particularly since he occasionally gets in the ring. But maybe that’s too obvious, or too expensive. After all Johnson has been killing it this summer in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain and Fast & Furious 6, and this one doesn’t look like it’s going to hit theaters.
Warner Bros Home Entertainment will handle worldwide distribution on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download. The film will be co-produced by Warner Bros Animation and WWE Studios, and WWE will do its branding thing through its TV, digital media and print assets to market the movie. Bradley Buchanan, SVP Business and Legal Affairs, negotiated on behalf of WWE Studios.
“WWE is family-friendly entertainment, so partnering with Warner Bros on a Flintstones/WWE project was a natural extension of our Scooby Doo deal,” said Michael Luisi, President, WWE Studios. “This new, animated feature allows us to showcase our brand with young fans and loyal Flintstones enthusiasts alike.”
