Jamie Jones: CMT has new show for Austin

— Here are the notes and news items from the week in pro wrestling: “Stone Cold” has another television show lined up.

CMT will air “Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Ranch” beginning in June 2014.

During the show, eight elite athletes travel to Austin’s Broken Skull Ranch in Texas “to test their strength, stamina and endurance,” according to the network.

• The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) probably won’t participate in “Wrestlemania 30” in April 2014. He is scheduled to be filming another move, titled “San Andreas,” at that time.

• Forbes magazine named The Rock the highest grossing actor of 2013. By the magazine’s calculations, Johnson had $1.3 billion in total box office sales worldwide for the movies “Fast & Furious 6,” “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “Pain & Gain.”

Johnson edged out Robert Downey Jr. of the “Iron Man” franchise.

The Local Corner: Renegade Championship Wrestling is at 8 p.m. Saturdays at 806 Second Ave. in Chatsworth.

Southern Style Pro Wrestling is at 8 p.m. Saturdays at 4484 Highway 411 N. next to Eton Flea Market near the Ferris wheel. Admission is $5 for ages 13 and older and free for children 12 and younger.

Trivia Teaser: Who won the WWE Royal Rumble in 1989?

Check back next week for the answer.

The previous question: Who formed The New Rockers with Marty Jannetty?
