With just three weeks to go before its U.S. release, a trailer and two posters have been released for Christian Sesma’s upcoming action-adventure Vigilante Diaries which stars Jason Mewes, Paul Sloan, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Michael Jai White, Jaqueline Lord, Chavo Guerrero, Jr., James Russo and Michael Madsen; take a look below…
Jason Mewes stars as an in-your-face filmmaker known for his web videos of an urban avenger known only as “The Vigilante” (Paul Sloan). But when The Vigilante terminates a creep with deep connections, it’ll trigger a live-feed bloodbath between the Armenian mob, Mexican cartels, a rogue team of Special Forces commandos, and an international black ops conspiracy that’s about to make things very personal. Ufc legend Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Michael Jai White, Jaqueline Lord, WWE star Sal “Chavo” Guerrero, Jr., James Russo and Michael Madsen co-star in this explosive throwback packed with badass swagger, hardcore firepower and bone-crunching action. »

In June, Lion Forge Comics is set to launch a new series based upon the post-wrestling exploits of former WWE and Lucha Underground star Chavo Guerrero, Jr., entitled Chavo Guerrero’s Warrior’s Creed, and we have a preview of the first issue for you here…
So here’s the thing about Chavo Guerrero, Jr. — the guy’s unstoppable. With 12 major wrestling championships in a career spanning just as many years, he’s one of the most electrifying performers on the circuit. After his “retirement” from the ring he went on to dominate the first year of El Rey Network’s Lucha Underground, much to the excitement of his 500K social media followers and El Rey’s 10M-strong viewership. You could say Chavo’s stardom is matched only by his incredible family legacy, as he is the third generation of Guerrero family grappling. This heritage, charisma, and physicality is what »

Earlier today, the WWE Network sent a WrestleMania week email to subscribers advertising the streaming service’s full schedule and, in the process, confirmed this year’s entrant into the Hall of Fame’s celebrity wing – rapper/actor Snoop Dogg, who has been a longtime fan of the company and has been a part of WWE television broadcasts in the past.
Snoop made a memorable appearance at WrestleMania Xxiv, where he served as the Master of Ceremonies for the evening’s Playboy Bunnymania Lumberjack match between the teams of Maria and Ashley Massaro and Beth Phoenix and Melina. After the match, Snoop clotheslined Maria’s jealous ex-boyfriend, Santino Marella, and kissed the Playboy covergirl. He returned to WWE as Raw guest host on October 19, 2009, where a scuffle with Chavo Guerrero saw Snoop take the former Cruiserweight Champion down with a clothesline and a tackle.

More often than not, groups such as the New World Order, Four Horsemen and D-Generation X are talked about, but the aura the vampire stable had during the ‘Attitude’ Era shouldn’t be discounted.
Both Edge and Christian as well as The Hardy Boyz are former members, and both reaped the benefits of early associations with Gangrel. David Heath – the man behind the creepy, blood-spitting gimmick – has said during shoot interviews that the character is one he had pitched for years to the WWF/WWE, long before he actually ended up playing it.
In this week’s article, Gangrel opens up to provide an eye-opening fact about The Brood which not many people will be aware of. Instead of Christian, just who was originally ear-marked »

When you look across the landscape of professional wrestling in 2016, in terms of talent, everything seems bright.
In WWE there’s a plethora of stars in their prime, with the likes of Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor all ready to take centre stage from the John Cenas and The Undertakers. In Lucha Underground, an eclectic mix of talent ranging from Prince Puma and Johnny Mundo to Mil Muertes and Chavo Guerrero are all putting on a riveting show, and the same can be said for a great many promotions whether they’re in the Us, Japan or even in the UK.
But what about the stars of tomorrow? While there’s a group of wrestlers primed and ready to become today’s show-stealers and headliners, what about the up-and-coming stars who in five or ten years time might be in the same position as »
