Steven Fernandes reporting.... In a SEC filing, WWE noted that Vince McMahon made a gift of 8,500,000 shares of Class B WWE Stock to a Irrevocable Trust account that he created, which Linda McMahon is the beneficiary of. The trust account was created for "estate planning purposes."

"Fast & Furious 6" starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was officially released today on DVD and Blu-Ray.
