Just make sure Vince McMahon doesn’t see that picture. He’ll think Shinsuke Nakamura’s too small for the main roster.
And from the same company that brought you the Royal Rumble 2017 poster, with then-WWE Champion Aj Styles in the back row, and part-timers Undertaker, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar leading the charge, WWE has done it again with their new advertisement for The Ultimate Thrill-ride Wrestlemania 33.
Goldberg, Undertaker and Brock Lesnar are at the front again, with Roman Reigns, John Cena, Triple H and Shane McMahon up next.
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,
The occasional piece of frustration leaks out on Twitter, like when Summer Rae and Emmalina criticised Charlotte and Sasha Banks’ never ending feud last year, and when Rusev seemed to vent on the same few guys always getting the main event spots on Raw. But these are rare, because nobody wants to be wished well in their future endeavours. Or, even worse, enter a feud with Titus O’Neil.
Thanks to Xavier Woods’ UpUpDownDown channel, filmed in the wrestler’s natural habitat – the locker room – we have a glimpse into how several of WWE’s top stars talk about one of
It’s an experiment that’s a couple of years old now, and without any real competition – like when WWF abandoned the push of The All American Lex Luger – Vince McMahon hasn’t been forced to change his plans.
But Roman is booed very audibly at TV tapings, and it’s cheered when he loses – as last week’s Raw accidentally showed when they cut to this insanely happy guy when Chris Jericho beat Reigns for the United States Championship.
However, on this week’s episode in the promo recap of the title change, Tde Wrestling have pointed out on Twitter that the video package cut to that same guy when Roman was pinned, but blatantly from a different
The 06/20/16 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw reviewed in about 4 minutes – including the Biggest Food Fight In The World!, a fantastic Aj Styles/John Cena segment, Seth Rollins taking on Dolph Ziggler in a great match, Team USA vs Team Not USA and more…
Independence Day: Indigestion
America! Terry Funk, yeah.
Raw opened on a 4th July dinner comedy skit with most of the main roster, and as soon as The Miz turned up in a pristine white suit, you knew what was coming. Food fight! Which was bizarre for a few reasons: 1) It was actually really funny, 2) Titus O’Neil just stood in the background hitting people with his giant sausage, and 3) it ended with Kevin Owens being hit in the face by a mystery pie thrower.
There was never any payoff to this,
As always Spoilers if you haven’t seen the PPV yet…
After Garcia’s empassioned performance, the pay per view opens with
With the same old matches now being booked again, and some surprising things happening, this episode of Raw from New Jersey was good. It wasn’t great, but some of the parts of it were, and we’ll get into that in this column.
Dean Ambrose defeated Bad News Barrett The Uso’s & Naomi beat Tyson Kidd, Cesaro & Natalya John Cena squashed Curtis Axel Paige beat Nikki Bella via Dq Daniel Bryan defeated Luke Harper Seth Rollins beat Roman Reigns

Hosted by the energetic and easy-on-the-eye Renee Young, this set is a fun one in many ways and offers something different than the usual “list” or “biography” release we tend to get from WWE home video.
Nelson Frazier Jr, also known as Viscera and King Mabel in many of his WWE incarnations, has passed away after suffering a heart attack in his hometown of Memphis, Tennesse.
He had just celebrated his 43rd birthday this past Friday on Valentine’s day.
Wrestling agent Eric Simms first broke this news on his Facebook page…
Others then followed suit and paid their condolences.
I am shocked & so sad. Mabel, Viscera, Big Daddy V (Nelson Frazier) passed away. He was a good friend. He just celebrated his 43Bday

‘Speaking of 2K Sports, we have big news coming from them next Saturday afternoon at Axxess that I will partner with The King to deliver. Big news indeed regarding WWE’s newest video game.’
WhatCulture.com can actually confirm this announcement as we will be attending the reveal.
WWE 2K14 will be the first of WWE’s video-game series to appear under the 2K Sports banner. The series was previously published by Thq from 2000 until their bankruptcy earlier this year. Although J.R. hasn’t specifically stated what the announcement will relate to, we can assume that it will be to confirm the game’s full roster. J.R. joined The King and Lilian Garcia
The show opens with Fandango having his long elaborate entrance as the crowd very quietly hums the theme. Then his attention turns to Lillian Garcia as he tests her dancing abilities asking her if she wants to Fandango with him. This leads to some awkward sequence where it almost looks like Garcia wanted to kiss him at one point. I love the combination of dirty Johnny Curtis from Nxt and Fandango it gives the character a lot more depth. In the end, Fandango drops Lillian for her bad skills leaving her distraught.
Santino comes out calling the dancing douche bag a couple bad names that he thinks are funny before they get to the match.
Matt Striker and Scott Stanford kick off the pre-show for the pay-per-view and talks about the online Slammys. Brodus Clay won “Best Dancer of the Year”. Charlie Sheen took home “Social Media Ambassador of the Year” Slammy. Jerry Lawler returning home at the airport after his heart attack is WWE.com’s Exclusive Video of the Year. The Slammy for the “Crowd Chant of the Year” is Ryback’s “Feed Me More”. The Slammy for the “Upset of the Year” went to Daniel Bryan for defeating Mark Henry and Big Show at Royal Rumble. And finally, Aj Lee won the Slammy for “Diva of the Year”.

WWE.com will be putting out a live stream tomorrow at 1.30pm Pdt (which is 6.30pm UK time) with a WWE ’13 Roster Reveal Pre-Show, presented by IGN. Then at 2pm (7pm UK time) comes the full roster reveal, so you don’t need to be in La to see how everything goes down.
Dubbed “the largest roster in WWE Games history” we are expecting anywhere between 74-86 wrestlers to be revealed, a large chunk of which will be Attitude Era stars. WWE 13 Creative Director Cory Ledesma (who we interviewed ourselves recently) and Senior Game Designer Bryan Williams will be on hand to reveal the roster and other news and announcement tidbits ahead of the game’s October 30th release along with WWE Hall of Famers
The show opens with a vignette looking at Aj Lee’s involvement in the four-way love storyline between herself, Cm Punk, Daniel Bryan and Kane.
Aj is then see backstage with what appears to be all three men. She tells Bryan they are drifting apart. She tells Kane she just wants to get wild but he is a monster. She tells Punk they are soul mates but she isn’t sure what she is thinking. Aj say it’s best if they all go their separate ways. The camera pans around behind Aj and it is shown she was simply rehearsing to herself in the mirror.
Vickie Guerrero comes out on stage and tonight’s General Manager says she has booked a Triple Threat Elimination Match that is up next…
1) Daniel Bryan defeated WWE Champion Cm Punk and Kane
Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer said on F4WOnline.com’s radio show this week that Hhh has turned down almost all WWE creative’s suggestions to use him on television.
Despite Foley being the wrestler in early 2000 who did more for getting Triple H over as a main event guy in his first WWE title reign than anyone, including two tremendous pay-per-view main events as Cactus Jack in the Street Fight at Royal Rumble and a Hell in a Cell at No Way Out where Foley made Hhh put him over and make him look like a million dollars, Hhh is said to be resentful of Foley.
Dave Meltzer believes Hhh’s dislike for Foley that has built up over the years is his
After capturing the titles from Primo and Epico on last week’s Raw, the two received a rapturous ovation on SmackDown as Lillian Garcia introduced them as “New WWE Tag Team Champions”. Many will be hoping the crowd’s excitement will set the tone for a new chapter.
The high flyers began their reign with an enthralling victory over the new, but extremely talented, duo of Hunico and Camacho. At one stage commentator Booker-t, a former 10 time WCW Tag Champion, bellowed “tag-team personification” in homage of what he saw.
What added further significance was that during the bout Primo and Epico hit the scene to observe and of course they were accompanied by the ever radiant Rosa Mendes
Frazier is better known for the variety of gimmicks he had during his time with the WWF and WWE, including Mable, Viscera, Big Daddy V and King V.
It is being reported that the 40-year old former WWE Superstar was pulled out of appearing for Wild Out Wrestling’s “Betrayed” Event on March 31st at the Giant Flea Market in Union City, Tennessee because he has been booked by the WWE.
Frazier was expected to appear in a Team Kamala vs Team Showtime match but Kamala Jr revealed on Facebook last night that the event has been moved to April 14th because Big Daddy V’s work for the WWE.
