Ah, Tampa, haven for aging wrestlers (anyone seen the Nasty Boys?) and birthplace of Aaron Carter. But isn't there another celebrity born and raised in the Tampa area who invariably came to mind during last night's broadcast? A celebrity who, as of a few months ago, was an untouchable icon in sports entertainment, but as of this week, was on Good Morning America defending himself against perceptions of unvarnished racism and reconciling his severed ties with WWE?
I'm sure it'll come to me.
In the meantime, let's focus on the »
In the latest weekly WWE 2K16 update from IGN.com, 22 more names have been announced as part of the game, set to be released this October:
Aiden English, Andre the Giant, Batista, Chris Jericho, Curtis Axel, Dean Ambrose, Edge, Erick Rowan, Fandango, Jbl, Luke Harper, Randy Savage, Natalya, Rick Rude, R-Truth, Ryback, Santino Marella, Sgt. Slaughter, Simon Gotch, Stephanie McMahon, The Rock and The Undertaker.
It’s an interesting mix of talent with English & Gotch recently winning the Nxt Tag Team Titles. There are also Hall of Famers in this group like Edge, Randy Savage and Sgt. Slaughter. The late Rick Rude isn’t in the WWE Hall of Fame yet, but he certainly should be considered in the future.

What a SummerSlam! Oh, wait, that was on Sunday. Well, last night sure felt like the real prestige affair, as there were debuts, returns and celebrity cameos galore.
Not necessarily a ton in the way of wrestling, of course, unless you were among those who enjoyed the broadcast's sidebar into house-show territory with that inconsequential eight-man tag toward the end. But I digress. In fact, I'll go one better, skip the formalities and segue straight into the five key things (in addition to the usual Twitter-friendly sidebar observations) that I »
There were more names announced today for the WWE2K16 video game that launches in October.
Here are the names that were announced by IGN.com: Diamond Dallas Page, Alicia Fox, Cesaro, Tyson Kidd, Cameron, Big Show, Bam Bam Bigelow, Dolph Ziggler, Finlay, Layla, Kevin Nash, Lex Luger, The Miz, Naomi, Randy Orton, Sheamus, Darren Young and Titus O’Neil.
There aren’t that many surprises in that grouping since a lot of them are current stars. Legends like Diamond Dallas Page, Bam Bam Bigelow and Lex Luger are all welcome additions to the new game and Finlay has worked backstage in WWE for over a decade, so even though he’s not currently on television, he’s a long time employee and his inclusion isn’t too surprising.
Here’s a video of Kidd and Cesaro’s entrance.
In addition to the names above, here’s »

The more difficult the heist in a heist film, the more fun it is to watch. Typically, the difficulty of the heist increases along with the value of the goods being stolen. This is our list of the most valuable loot hauls ever to be shown in film.
Heist movies have transcended the traditional crime drama genre to become big budget entertainment. Like action films, these new-era heist films often try and compete with each other by going bigger and better. More risky heists are more fun to watch. More valuable loot increases the stakes and therefore the thrills. More complicated plans impress the audience. There is no longer a practical limit of what can be stolen and how that thing can become stolen. Anything is possible.
This list shows just how outrageous some heist films have become. It used to be about putting together a plan to rob the local jewelry store or bank. »

Another batch of Superstars were confirmed for the WWE 2K16 roster this week as Triple H, Booker T, Colonel Mustafa, Eva Marie, General Adnan, Kalisto, Kane, Sin Cara, Summer Rae, Tamina, Emma and Lord Steven Regal were announced as the latest additions to the 120 unique character list.
While most of the reaction was sent the way of Adnan and Mustafa, two of the more controversial Superstars from ‘The Federation Years’, it’s the inclusion of William Regal’s WCW persona Lord Steven that is arguably more of a surprise.
This is because a WCW presence wasn’t expected at all in the new title. 120 Superstars, or so we thought, was just about enough to cover everyone on the current roster, a healthy number of Nxt stars, and a plethora of legends from WWE’s past. Also, a WCW Dlc pack consisting of Bam Bam Bigelow, Diamond Dallas Page, »

For many wrestling fans the so-called “Attitude Era” was when WWE was at its best. This is something that I tend to agree with, with a heart full of nostalgia. This is why WWE Monday Night Wars: Vol. 1 – Shots Fired was a welcome trip down memory lane.
One thing I will say about the release though is that it is very much a WWE release. We are meant to see the McMahons as respectful business people who would never be like the likes of Ted Turner, a man who wanted to destroy the oh so saintly WWE. Just look at the history of “Sports Entertainment” to know that this is not the case. The McMahons did their own damage too.
To move back to Monday Night Wars, for people who used to sit flipping from WWE to WCW, this is the perfect release for you. Looking at the major events of the so-called wars, »

As seen in the sneak peek below, both Jakes and Johnny beg off getting wrapped up in the latest episode of Briggs’ op, seeing as how they regularly seem to wind up in great jeopardy. So what is Briggs to do?
Why, leverage the greater global threat that is Isis, if course!

Good news, everyone: despite the fact that there is a teen-killing murderer at large, Rosewood High is still going ahead with its prom -- and the little liars are getting in on the action. For some reason, the liars think it's a great idea to attend their school dance (note: it's not), and they head to the event only to get -- you guessed it -- attacked by A. It's like, have they learned nothing from starring in the previous four seasons of this show?
Keep reading our "Pretty Little Liars" recap to find out what secrets the girls unravel as they attend what has to be the most whack prom that's ever been thrown.
The Liars Continue to Make Questionable Decisions, Live #ThatBarnPromLife
The liars are banned from prom for obvious reasons, but don't worry -- Spencer's mom offers to throw them a mock dance in her barn. »

Kim Richards has found herself on the wrong side of the law, yet again. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was arrested on Sunday for shoplifting and was subsequently released on $5,000 bail, E! News has learned. Richards, who recently plead not guilty to previous charges of resisting arrest and battery, was taken to the Van Nuys Police Department where she spent the night in jail. She was released earlier today, and was charged with a misdemeanor for the crime at hand. Entertainment Tonight was the first to report the news. Breaking news, more to come… »
Guy and his gal! Guy Ritchie married his model girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley in Wiltshire, England, on Thursday, July 30, Us Weekly can confirm. The couple said "I do" at their Ashcombe home. An insider tells Us that Brad Pitt, David Beckham, Jason Statham, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley were in attendance. Most guests will be sleeping in white tents and teepees overnight. According to Daily Mail, other guests that were invited include Sting and his wife Trudie Styler, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin, and Pitt's ex Gwyneth Paltrow. Coming along nicely [...] »
This Thursday on Graceland (USA Network, 10/9c), Paige Arkin will go undercover in a bid to get cozy with wannabe Armenian crime boss Ari’s rival, Toros. Offering Briggs a hand with his op is part of Paige’s “penance” for (very understandably) bungling the team’s recent attempt to gaslight Ari.
Paige of course also has some atoning to do — if only to herself — for her decision to sic murderous Sid Markham on Mike in the Season 2 finale, an impetuous, emotional decision made in the immediate wake of learning that her colleague, »
You know how Aria Montgomery's secretly a genius photographer who spends all day snapping pictures of dolls and whatnot? Well, this week on "Pretty Little Liars," the art world was like "Only Aria Can Save Us!" and she got herself a gallery exhibition. Unfortunately, A thought this would be a great time to be a total photography buzz kill and ruined the entire event.
Other things that happened this week include a new reveal about A's right hand man, and some Ezria flirting that will have shippers shaking and crying. Also of note, Toby Cavanaugh was absent -- presumably due to the fact that he recently binge-ate a bunch of pot gummy bears and is still high.
Everyone Panic, Senior Prom Might Be Cancelled
Last week, the liars got themselves held up at gun point by the Rosewood Pd thanks to their terrible decision to go after Charles Dilaurentis, and »

We rewatched the classic 1980s comedy, Top Secret! It took surgeons two weeks to wipe the smile off our face...
"Is this the potato farm?"
"Yes, I am Albert Potato"
If you're laughing at the quote above, then it's fair to say that you're already a Top Secret! fan. But if you're wondering what that actually means, then chances are you've missed out on one of the very best comedies that the 1980s had to offer.
Now the classic comedy Airplane!, rightfully, has been the beneficiary of some hugely forensic work, just to try and keep on top of its many, many background jokes. In fact, one DVD edition had a special feature just to point out all the things you may have missed on your first, tenth or fiftieth time around. Turns out there were quite a few in my case.

WWE’s Battleground is in its third year now, and it’s fair to say that it’s probably never going to be one of the company’s major shows. The name is unimaginative for one, and the cards haven’t exactly been stellar since its recent inception either, with 2015’s edition firmly joining them.
In fairness, there wasn’t a single terrible match on the card, just a lot of passable fare and bouts that didn’t really ignite fans’ imaginations. Still, as ever, there were a ton of hilarious, weird and off-the-wall moments that made it worth watching, from some distractingly horny fans in the front row, to Xavier Woods being Xavier Woods, and of course, the fiery trainwreck that was the main event.
It wasn’t a show for the ages and sadly there weren’t too many memorable signs from the St. Louis, Missouri crowd, but »

On the surface – and in the headline – there are only two storylines fans will be talking about coming out of WWE Battleground: The return of the Undertaker, who reemerged from clanging and banging in Death Valley to seek retribution against Brock Lesnar, and Kevin Owens' loss (by submission) to John Cena.
Neither development is necessarily good – unless you're the Face of the Franchise – and the resulting ripples are even worse. There are just five weeks until one of WWE's marquee events, SummerSlam, and at the moment it's being »
"Trainwreck" star Hader stopped by his fellow "SNL" alum's "Tonight Show" where the duo teamed up for a (faux) return to the "Point Pleasant Police Department," a buddy cop drama featuring the duo as police officers Preston and Pete, posturing over Pepsi, Perrier – oh, and plenty of projectile spitting.
"I was pruning my petunias. Accidentally punctured my pinky," Jimmy said, with a mouth full of coffee and crackers, which fly all over Hader. "Anyway, looks like our week is – pretty ...

Don’t argue with Jersey Shore cops — especially when they have food in their mouths and a pulsing penchant for “P”-words. Bill Hader dropped by “The Tonight Show” on Thursday to promote his new film, “Trainwreck,” and he left badly in need of a bath. During the appearance, he and Jimmy Fallon played out “clips” from their fake old TV series, “Point Pleasant Police Department,” running back-and-forth from the desk set to the precinct one in real-time.

Jimmy Fallon has turned the spit-take into an art form on The Tonight Show. On Thursday night, the host teamed with fellow SNL alum Bill Hader for "Point Pleasant Police Department," an Eighties cop show parody which found the two comedians projectile-spitting food at each other's faces as they pronounce words beginning with "P."
Hader was ostensibly promoting Trainwreck, his new film with Amy Schumer, but in honor of "Throwback Thursday," Fallon reminisced about his glory days with Hader on "Point Pleasant," a show about "two detectives who couldn't see »
