For decades, Britain has been known across the world for producing some truly great wrestlers. Although just a small island nation with a population of 60 million, the worldwide impact of British stars has been profound. I have previously stated, when appearing on the Bwc British Wrestling Roundup show on Challenge TV here in the UK, that I genuinely believe that British wrestlers are the best in the world. When you consider our nation’s small size and the number of Brits who have made a global impression on the wrestling world, compared to the size of other wrestling countries, it is an excellent rate ‘per capita’. The British style, technical and mat based, has become slightly diluted as the American influence has crossed the Atlantic over the past two decades, but it has enjoyed a renaissance to a degree through the popularity of some of the wrestlers listed in this article. »

One of the more interesting of WWE’s annual b-shows, Money in the Bank is the night of the year where a younger talent has the chance to grab the contract that sets them up for a built-in storyline and eventual chance at winning the WWE World Title. Here, there are two ladder matches, one for the contract and one for the vacant WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Daniel Bryan, who was forced to relinquish his WWE World Title due to a neck injury, appeared on the pre-show/kick-off show and told the world that he was still suffering effects of his injury and may still require further surgery, Bryan then promised he would be back as soon as he could and win back the WWE World Title. Time will tell, but I have a sinking feeling that Bryan’s time as “the guy” are behind us.
So, with a card »

Diem Brown is in the fight of her life - and she's sharing it with raw candor. "It's important to me to share the realness of my journey to help show that 'healthy' isn't a quick before-and-after picture," she tells People exclusively. "But instead it's okay to admit that at times it's hard, that it can be tough." In intimate photos, Brown, 32, offers an emotional look at the toll taken by the toughest battle yet in her long war with cancer. When she woke up after emergency surgery in mid-August following complications from an operation to remove several tumors, she »

Bad news for major 90s fans. ABC Family has pretty much cancelled Mystery Girls without officially announcing it. Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth both have hoped to make a comeback like Melissa Joan-Hart, but the show failed to keep up high ratings. According to reports that show is expected to be fully cancelled by the time this month ends. ABC Family has not confirmed nor fully denied their plans. However, this is sad news for Jennie and Tori as they rebuild their careers back up.
The show followed the lives of these two sort of detectives who found themselves as more trouble than good. The series has a great concept and held a lot of promise due to Tori assisting producing it. But due to it being marketed as silly and goofy, it seemed to fail to bring interest in these former drama stars followers. So far no word has »

Bad news, dragon fans: Toothless aficionados everywhere will have to be patient for an extra 12 months, as DreamWorks Animation has decided to shift the third entry in the How To Train Your Dragon franchise to 2017.The second film arrived earlier this year, and despite some worries that it didn’t perform quite as well in the States as the first – $174 million so far, compared to the original’s $277.2 million Us haul – the international figures have been much more favourable, with the sequel totalling $598.8 million globally compared to $494.8 million last time.No reason for the shift has been given, but we do know that writer/director Dean DeBlois and producer Bonnie Arnold remain firmly attached. Presumably, the request for more time came from within, and we all know we want the third movie to look and feel as spectacular as the first two.So we’ll have to wait a little »
What a summer at the movies! The galaxy got guarded. The future days went past, like some sort of extinct age. The planet of the apes stopped rising and started dawning. Our stars had a fault. And also: Lucy!
Hollywood had a rough season at the box office in summer 2014, with overall box-office receipts falling precipitously from last year’s flurry of mega-grossers. Going into this weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, the highest-grossing film at the summer box-office, has earned about $256 million–which would have made it the fifth highest-grossing movie of summer 2013.
Word on the street says that 2014 was »

Bad news for Mary-Kate Olsen at a big equestrian show in NY this week -- when her horse refused to jump during one of the events ... leaving her with a big fat zero on the score sheet. It all went down at the 39th Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show -- where the 28-year-old former "Full House" actress was attempting to show off her talents in the saddle.

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new. »

It looks like it’s going to be a tough weekend for new titles at the box office. All three major releases came in lower than projected on Friday, which allowed holdovers Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy to hold on to their first and second place rankings. The Expendables 3, the most notable newbie, earned an estimated $6.9 million on its first day in theatres. That suggests an opening weekend of about $16 million, or less than half what the first Expendables earned from its debut back in August 2010. Fox’s Let’s Be Cops came in fourth on Friday with $5.6 million. The R-rated comedy opened early, on Wednesday, with $5.2 million and should end its first weekend with just under $15 million. The Giver earned an estimated $4.7 million from 3,003 locations yesterday. The adaptation of Lois Lowry’s novel, The Giver should bring in $13 million in its first three days. »

In Hollywood, you can be on top of the world one minute, and then a public indiscretion, or a handful of box office disasters, or the simple fact of getting old, can each result in fewer and fewer calls (you can count on hearing from Millennium Entertainment no matter what). Bad news for the old guard, but good news for the many aspiring and talented performers looking to fight their way to billboards, bus shelters and the front few rows of the Academy Awards. Every year brings an exciting influx of new talent, actors who come tearing out of nowhere and soon find themselves booked up the wazoo with work. As part of our ongoing On The Rise series (read about the cinematographers here and the composers here), we're going in front of the camera and looking at some of the male actors set to break out in the next »

Bad news for Avan Jogia and his fans. The former Nickelodeon star was making splashes in the TV world with a young adult mystery show Twisted. It followed the life of his character who had a past that haunted him. It held a lot of promise and seemed to do decent in ratings. However, when it ended in April Chuck Pratt Jr promised that the show had a lot more stories even though the finale ended things. Now we know that it was a series finale instead of a season one. Luckily Avan has landed a new role in Spike TV’s Tut.
We’re sad that the show was cancelled. It was interesting and different from others. Avan showed a very different side to his acting range that also proved he didn’t need a comedy to succeed. However, it wasn’t enough to keep ABC Family happy with it. »

Rik Mayall's final TV appearance will be broadcast on Dave next month.
Crackanory will feature the late comic reading The Weatherman by Tony Way, and will be screened on Wednesday, September 24 at 10pm.
UKTV bosses had previously stated that the comic's appearance on the adult version of Jackanory would only be broadcast with the consent of his family and agent.

Bad news for Eli Roth fans. Roth’s first directorial effort in six years, The Green Inferno, had been scheduled to hit theaters early next month on September 5th, but now Open Road Films has scratched that plan and looks to be dropping the film, putting the Green Inferno release date up in the air for the moment. Per Deadline, the reason for the delay has to do with financier Worldview Entertainment, which is not keen on maintaining the P&A (aka “print and advertising”) commitment that was set by ex-ceo Christopher Woodrow. With the company refusing to pony up the cash needed for the marketing campaign, Open Road has opted to scratch plans to release the film. More after the jump. It’s unclear when and how The Green Inferno might reach viewers now, as it’s possible that the pic could simply go straight to VOD or be »

Bad news, Barbz, Nicki Minaj has delayed the release of her upcoming single "Anaconda." The 31-year-old rapper took to Twitter on Sunday to let fans know that the song's debut has been pushed back a week and will now hit airwaves on Monday, Aug. 4. "My darlingz, I've pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4. I promise you will understand why before the week is out. Loveeeeeeee uuuuuu," the "Super Bass" beauty wrote. But luckily, it was all bad news for Minaj's loyal fan base as the message was accompanied by another super-hot shot of the singer, in which she's sporting a pink G-string and matching sports bra (just like the "Anaconda" cover) »
Happy end of Comic-Con! While we're exhausted and ready for weekend part deux, the week is really just beginning, along with a solid crop of Sunday night shows. True Blood threw some twists into the Hep-v outbreak, and The Leftovers continued to be very sad and also very puzzling at the same time.

Bad news for fans of The Legend of Korra. Citing low ratings, Nickelodeon has yanked five upcoming episodes of the Avatar: The Last Airbender spinoff from its schedule. However, fans shouldn’t jump to the assumption that the show is cancelled – in fact, Nickelodeon is organizing a digital rollout for the remaining episodes of Book Three, and seeing as the show has already been renewed for a fourth season, The Legend of Korra isn’t going anywhere too quickly.
We’ll know more after the Legend of Korra Comic-Con panel, but it looks like the remaining episodes of Book Three will be released weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning August 1st. Additionally, the show will still be made available on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu.
This news was confirmed via a Korra Nation Tumblr post thanking the fans for their on-going support, which was reposted by showrunner Bryan Konietzko, »
