A fan has posted the trailer for WWE Studios' "12 Rounds 3: Lockdown" on YouTube, as seen above. The movie is scheduled to be released on September 11th and stars Dean Ambrose. Below is the synopsis:

"WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose plays Shaw, a detective who returns to active duty after the death of his partner. When he uncovers evidence linking his fellow officers to a murder, they frame him for a homicide he didn’t commit. Trapped in his own precinct, Shaw will do whatever it takes to expose the dirty cops and clear his name. With twelve rounds in the clip and one shot at redemption, nothing will stand in Shaw’s way in this action-packed thriller."

WWE Studios Forced To Edit Hogan Material #MMBWWE

WWE Studios will also see some fallout from the Hulk Hogan racist comments controversy. Hogan has an extended sequence early in the movie "Celebrity Death Pool" that stars Ken Jeong and David Hasselhoff.

We noted before that WWE informed all licensees that current and future Hogan related projects were to be nixed. This includes WWE 2K16, action figures, t-shirts and more. Even the streaming of Hogan's WWE theme songs was pulled.
