WWE Backlash: The Five Best Matches in the Event’s History

19 May 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In preparation for this Sunday’s event, Liam Hoofe takes a look back at the best matches in the history of WWE Backlash

The return of WWE Backlash last year was met with an enthusiastic response from the WWE Universe, and with good reason. The PPV, which traditionally followed on from WrestleMania, has given us some great shows since its birth in 1999. The PPV itself would often be a better wrestling event than WrestleMania in fact, with it effectively being a re-run of the card with all of the pomp and spectacle removed.

Needless to say, the show has given us many great matches and moments over the years as well. So to get you warmed up for this Sunday’s upcoming event, here is a look back at some of the best matches from the PPV’s history, and no, Shawn Michaels and God Vs The McMahons didn’t make the list. »

Mick Foley Says 'The Rock for President,' I Believe He Can Seriously Win (Video)

12 May 2017 12:25 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_7y1csoz2"]] Mick Foley says his old WWE tag team partner, The Rock, would make a Great President -- and he seriously hopes Dwayne Johnson runs for office in 2020.  This is not a joke! After The Rock told GQ that entering the race for the White House is a "real possibility" -- we asked Foley if he'd support the other half of the legendary "Rock n Sock Connection." "I think the Rock has the potential to unite »

Undertaker undergoing surgery, Kurt Angle wrestling in WWE update…

6 April 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After the four hour Hall of Fame, two-and-a-half hour Nxt TakeOver, seven hour Wrestlemania, three hour Raw, two hour Smackdown, one hour 205 Live and one hour Nxt, you’re either sitting there going, ‘I can no longer survive on anything less than 24 hours of original in-ring wrestling programming every week’. Or, like me, you might have collapsed after Tuesday night’s Smackdown muttering: ‘no, no more wrestling. I’m done with wrestling. WWE, you completed wrestling. You win’

Good news for the former, because the WWE Network are adding even more shows.

First up, announced in what now seems like an eternity ago on Saturday afternoon, WWE confirmed that their long-awaited Women’s Tournament will finally take place in the Summer. Bayley made the announcement at WWE’s Business Partner Summit – sounds like a riot – alongside Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, Alexa Bliss and Asuka. The tournament will be broadcast on the WWE Network, »

WWE teases Hardy Boys return & Kurt Angle as Raw Gm…

27 March 2017 11:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Happy Wrestlemania week everyone! WWE’s website have kicked off the festivities by counting down the shortest matches in Wrestlemania history. Presumably preparing us for the Goldberg/Brock Lesnar main event.

But that isn’t the only Wrestlemania moment potentially being set up by WWE’s online team.

As part of the ultimate thrill-ride build up, WWE have been posting various Wrestlemania match spots from over the years on Twitter. The latest is a clip of Jeff Hardy crushing Matt in a table sandwich with chair filling at Wrestlemania 25…

You better believe tables were Broken in the battle between The #HardyBoyz at the 25th Anniversary of #WrestleMania! #WWENetwork

This is interesting for two reasons.

Firstly, as WrestleZone have pointed out, this one tweet has already become the second most shared post on WWE’s Twitter in the month of March (one »

Kurt Angle WWE wrestling return plans, Matt & Jeff Hardy to WWE update…

23 March 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Have you got a 36 by 20” space on your bedroom, living room or toilet walls? Then you’re in luck, because even though it’s about a month late – with the artwork being debuted in February’s Festival of Friendship segment on Raw – WWE have made ‘The Creation of Kevin’ avaliable in poster form on their shop.

Frame it real nice, hang it in a prized position, and remember happier times. Like when Raw actually did good ratings. This week’s episode lost almost 300,000 viewers by the third hour.

The two hour Smackdown Live, however, has maintained a very healthy average increasing slightly from 2.628 million viewers last week to 2.647. A whopping 70% of you agreed with me the episode was 4 out of 5, and 16% thought it even better at 5 out of 5. 

One way to increase Raw’s fortunes might be bringing back Kurt Angle as an onscreen performer, potentially as a replacement for »

WWE Monday Night Raw Reaction 3/20/2017

22 March 2017 12:12 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

We're a couple weeks away from the biggest show of the year, Wrestlemania. Traditionally, the WWE has gone all out in trying to build up interest for what they call "The Showcase of the Immortals." This year, we have the WWE once again in a brand split, trying to create two separate shows with two separate identites that never intermingle. Former WWE announcer and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross stated back in July when the brand split first occurred that we as fans would best be able to judge the success of the brand split by Wrestlemania time. So, with Wrestlemania 33 happening on April 2nd and being shown live on the WWE Network, how did Monday Night Raw add up this week? 

The show opened with Mick Foley being fired as Raw General Manager. In real life, Foley has hip surgery coming up soon to help aleviate some of »

WWE respond to Paige sex tape hacking, Shinsuke Nakamura main roster update

21 March 2017 11:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ultimate Warrior, Bruno Sammartino, Kurt Angle – of all the surprising names that have returned to WWE over the years, the most astonishing one happened yesterday: WWE have announced on Twitter that Jim Cornette will be inducting The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express at this year’s Hall of Fame ceremony.

Breaking: The #RockNRollExpress will be inducted into the #Wwehof Class of 2017 by @TheJimCornette!

WWE (@WWE) March 20, 2017

‘Why’s that so unexpected?’ you might ask. ‘Jim Cornette was part of The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express’ greatest rivalries – against teams like The Midnight Express and the Heavenly Bodies!’ It’s because of Cornette’s shoot comments about WWE and its various officials in the past. For instance, like this on Head of Production Kevin Dunn:

Wrestlemania 33 championship match changed, Mick Foley fired and more – WWE Raw, Mar. 20, 2017 review

21 March 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mick Foley No More

Mick Foley opened the show announcing his leave of absence effective immediately, reading a prepared statement from some index cards. But then good gawd almighty, he broke those index cards in half! Ripping the statement into shreds, Foley began to cut an impassioned promo, but his microphone was cut off. And then Stephanie McMahon came down to cut him off. He was fired, she fired him.

Then Sami Zayn of all people came down to defend Mick, which transitioned into a decent match against Samoa Joe. Sami tapped to the Coquina Clutch, hopefully positioning underdog babyface Sami as the next thorn in the Authority’s side.

That, or Foley just passed him the ‘Stephanie’s going to bury you every week’ torch.

Charlotte beat Dana Brooke

Dana Brooke got a fair amount of offence in, losing to Charlotte. Unfortunately, the offence didn’t look any good. »

WWE stars injured, missing Wrestlemania! Seth Rollins backstage update

15 March 2017 12:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Finn Balor made his WWE return on Friday night’s house show, wrestled again on Saturday and – according to PWInsider – was even backstage for last night’s episode of Raw. So where was he?

Going by Balor’s Twitter, he was at home looking for Raw on TV. I don’t know why he needs two remote controls for that. Maybe even Demon Kings don’t know how to configure the TV’s volume.

What channel is #Raw on?!?

— Finn Bálor (@FinnBalor) March 14, 2017

Balor has now been fully medically cleared to return to the ring after six months out, but still hasn’t returned on Raw. Seth Rollins, however, ran down on last night’s episode, delivering a few jumping kicks and taking multiple bumps despite injuring his right knee only six weeks ago.

Ex-tna World Champion makes Raw in-ring debut, Wrestlemania 33 match off? – WWE Raw, Mar. 13, 2017 review

14 March 2017 11:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Down Goes Goldberg

“Down goes Goldberg!” is Paul Heyman’s latest catchphrase, which he used several times when talking about Brock Lesnar’s F5 on the Universal Champion last Monday. Despite Lesnar’s impressive muscles, there was no real meat here. Just Heyman trying to advance a feud between two guys where neither wrestles anyone else on TV. Eat, sleep, conquer, repeat the same basic promo points over and over again.

Foley’s On Fire!

Stephanie McMahon then gave Mick Foley a fun task backstage – by the end of the night, he has to find someone to fire from the Raw roster. Titus O’Neil-oh, wait he’s doing the tortured decision thing.

Sasha Banks beat Dana Brooke

Sasha Banks’ slow heel turn continues, as she hooked Dana Brooke’s tights for a very quick win, which babyface Bayley still cheered. Charlotte berated her protegee for losing once again, but »

Triple H shoots on Cm Punk? Goldberg takes a bump! | WWE Raw, Mar. 6, 2017 Review

7 March 2017 7:24 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Jericho & Kevin Owens Have ‘The Talk’

Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens opened Raw with ‘the talk’. You know, the ‘why did you break up with me and shove my head into an LCD screen’ talk? We’ve all had them. Owens continued the heartbreak from the Festival of Friendship, saying he didn’t stab his best friend in the back, because Jericho was never his best friend.

I don’t believe him, though. I think he really did love Chris. But his own blind ambition has forced him to rationalise otherwise. That’s the true sadness in this story.

They then made a match between themselves for the United States Championship at The Ultimate Thrill-ride Wrestlemania 33. Michael Cole did not let that tagline go.

The two brawled, and then Samoa Joe blindsided Chris, for Sami Zayn to come out and even the odds – it looks like we got ourselves a tag team match, »

WWE Plays It Safe For Fastlane: Recap and Reactions

6 March 2017 10:16 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

WWE has a long standing tradition of not shaking things up too much right before Wrestlemania.  With Smackdowns pay-per-view Elimination Chamber done two weeks ago the biggest change in that show was Cena losing the title to Bray Wyatt.  Raw's final exclusive pay-per-view played out like everyone thought it would with only one title changing hands.  When Stephanie McMahon and Triple H don't bother to show up on camera and leave Mick Foley in charge it shows that even the head brass didn't want to shake things up.  Now for the next 29 days everything will be set for Wrestlemania with only a couple questions still to address.

This was supposed to be one of the most entertaining Kickoff Matches in a while. Instead it fell flat mainly because the cruiserweight division isn't strong enough yet »

Kurt Angle going to WWE Smackdown? Nxt stars getting called up…

3 March 2017 11:09 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Seth Rollins medically cleared in time or not, The Game will have his Wrestlemania match. So he’s going to shake off the ring rust with a few live events leading up to WWE’s biggest show of the year.

Triple H is being advertised for the 10th March live event in Buffalo, the 11th’s in Toronto and the 26th in White Plains, New York. If those dates sound familiar – it’s because those are the exact same shows Finn Balor is also being advertised for.

In fact, the 26th March show has them going up against each other, as part of a six man tag match with Triple H, Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens taking on Balor, Sami Zayn and Chris Jericho. Wrestling News World has been reporting that if Rollins can’t get back in time for Mania, Balor is The Game’s back-up opponent.

Ex-tna Champion to debut in WWE, big title change on Smackdown

22 February 2017 11:19 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With all the Rock calling Cm Punk shenanigans from the last two days, I didn’t even get a chance to cover the latest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2017: Diamond Dallas Page.

Rolling Stone were the first to officially break the news before the follow-up announcement on Raw later that day. Of course, Ddp going in was actually broken by PWInsider almost two months ago, but WWE likes to give these exclusives to mainstream news outlets as part of their PR strategy.

Triple H tweeted in congratulations:

Manager, performer, master of the Diamond Cutter, Yoga Instructor, good friend of over 25 years & now @WWE Hall of Famer. Congrats @RealDDP!

Braun Strowman “chewed out” by Vince McMahon backstage, another WWE star injured

15 February 2017 11:32 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The annual build to Wrestlemania isn’t just ridiculously full of part-timers. It’s also ridiculously full of injuries.

In 2017 so far alone we’ve already had Seth Rollins reinjure his McL, Rich Swann lose his Cruiserweight title shot because of a busted ankle, Tony Nese being taken off TV for hurting his foot, Nikki Bella reportedly experiencing numbness in one side of her body and Darren Young undergoing elbow surgery.

As revealed on Tuesday’s episode of Smackdown Live, Naomi has added her name to the li-i…I can’t make that joke right now – confirming she picked up an injury during her Women’s Championship win at Sunday’s Elimination Chamber. The exact nature of the injury wasn’t disclosed, but going by the knee brace she was wearing, it’s probably somewhere on her leg.

CageSideSeats are reporting that Naomi’s injury is indeed legitimate, so not a fake storyline angle, »

Exclusive: James Monroe Iglehart Says Goodbye to Genie and ‘Aladdin’ on Broadway

15 February 2017 9:25 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

From sequins to 18th-century ruffles, Aladdin’s James Monroe Iglehart is about to embark on another dream: playing the dual roles of Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton. On Sunday, Feb. 19, Iglehart will take his final bow as the Genie on Broadway before moving up four blocks from the New Amsterdam Theatre on 42nd Street to the coveted Richard Rodgers Theatre on 46th, where he’ll join the cast of the Alexander Hamilton musical starting mid-April.

While the Genie was famously voiced by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated film, Iglehart has been playing the part since Aladdin’s 2011 out-of- town tryouts in Seattle, which eventually landed in Toronto for a pre-Broadway run in 2013. Night after night, the actor has received roaring applause for his show-stopping rendition of “Friend Like Me,” a number that surely helped him win the 2014 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.
