WWE News: Randy Orton’s Redemption With Drug Policy Changes

19 December 2013 7:36 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The WWE Wellness policy was quietly amended in July 2013 to allow for “Therapeutic Use Exceptions” relating to drug policy – in addition to an amendment that allows for talent with two violation strikes to get a strike removed. This should have been a massive story, but passed without much controversy, much to WWE’s delight.

This is hugely significant considering current WWE Champion Randy Orton was one of those men with two violation strikes to his name. That had meant Orton would be terminated if he violated again on the three strikes and out ruling. The policy amendment has now allowed Randy to be cleared of a strike. This clearance is achieved by going through a “Redemption Program”, essentially a re-assessment with a doctor and implementation of the doctor’s recommendations over an 18 month period.

It doesn’t seem a coincidence that as soon as these policy changes came in to effect, »

‘WWE Raw’ Results & Review (16.12.13)

17 December 2013 8:41 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

We are now at the Raw following TLC 2013, a show that ended with Randy Orton defeating John Cena to become the new, unified and undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

The WWE roster are on the stage as the show opens, and Triple H and Stephanie McMahon stand in the ring together before announcing their new champion, Randy Orton. Orton comes out to loud boo’s from the fans. He walks past the roster and the camera focuses on Daniel Bryan and John Cena, who stare at Orton sternly. Triple H and Stephanie grin at Randy as he enters the ring, obviously forgetting last week when they beat the snot out of each other again. Orton talks about how no-one had faith in him but he proved everyone wrong. We’ve heard this promo, from numerous guys, before, so it isn’t really that interesting. In fact, it’s white noise at this point. »

'WWE Raw' Dec. 16: Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan in the main event

16 December 2013 9:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Previously on: Randy Orton beat John Cena at "TLC" to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Daniel Bryan lost to The Wyatt Family and Cm Punk beat The Shield.

The big news: "WWE Raw" starts out with all of the superstars on the stage and The Authority in the ring, ready to celebrate Orton's achievement. Randy doesn't get much time in the sun though, because Cena finds a microphone and calls him an idiot, among other things.

He wants Daniel Bryan to get a match against the new champ and The Authority agrees, though Bryan doesn't get a title shot just yet. This sets up Orton being the whining heel champion all night. He complains in the ring and backstage, presenting himself as a spoiled brat. Just the kind of guy you want as the face of the company. He's also carrying both titles, by the way. They should just drop »

'WWE TLC' live blog: John Cena or Randy Orton - Who will be WWE World Heavyweight Champion?

15 December 2013 4:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

WWE is ending the pay per view year with a bang, unifying the WWE Championship and World Heavyweight Championship, assuring only one man will stand tall as the face of the company. The main event will feature John Cena and Randy Orton battling it out in a tables, ladders and chairs match with both titles hung high above the ring.

Whether either man should continue as "the face of WWE" is a matter of opinion, but this will be the big match to end 2013. It's also the exact same thing that happened at "Vengeance," the final pay per view in 2001, with Chris Jericho emerging as the undisputed champion. Don't tell WWE though, they forgot.

WWE TLC 2013 Predictions

15 December 2013 9:29 AM, PST | | See recent news »

WWE TLC (Tables, Ladders and Chairs) is the last pay-per-view event in 2013, but it certainly isn’t the least. WWE has decided that the unification match of the WWE and World Heavyweight titles has to take place and it is happening before the road to WrestleMania. Arguably the two biggest names to come out of the post-Attitude era time period will be squaring off in the biggest title merge since 2001 and those two men are John Cena and Randy Orton. There are some other decent matches on the card too, but the focus is certainly on this historic match.

Dolph Ziggler vs. Fandango (Kickoff Match)

These two guys are good performers in the ring and it should be a very fun kick-off match to start the event. I want to say Ziggler will be winning this match, but I have a feeling he’s still in the doghouse with WWE for reasons unknown. »

‘WWE TLC 2013′ Preview

14 December 2013 12:27 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

So, this coming Sunday is the annual TLC pay per view event, the night of the year where tables, ladders and chairs (oh, my) are promoted as not just weapons, but as stepladders (metaphorically and literally) to the top for WWE Superstars.

This event is being given a boost of legitimate pay per view importance this year, with the main event between the WWE Champion Randy Orton, and the World Champion John Cena, in a TLC match in which the winner will become the new, undisputed and unified champion of WWE. It’s been done before (just ask Chris Jericho) and I am surprised that they didn’t hold off on this until WrestleMania XXX, but we don’t know what is going to happen, so until the night is over, I will reserve judgement of the booking of this angle.

So, here are the matches that have been made, »

‘WWE Raw’ Review & Results (9.12.13)

10 December 2013 6:56 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Welcome to this week’s results and review write up of WWE Raw, the flagship show of the biggest sports entertainment company in the world.

So, tonight is a special “Slammy Awards” themed Raw, with awards being given out throughout the evening in a variety of categories, including “Superstar of the Year”, “Rookie of the Year”, “Diva of the Year” and “Match of the Year”. So let’s get going shall we?

The show begins, live from Washington, with local boy, and most-over guy in WWE, Daniel Bryan, making his way to the ring to a monster pop and thousands of “yes” chants from the fans in attendance. His opponent tonight is the dancing, silk shirt wearing, former Johnny Curtis, Fandango, who is accompanied by the lovely Summer Rae. The match isn’t a long one, but allows both men to get some offence in before the inevitable victory of Bryan. »

‘The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment’ Blu-ray Review

30 November 2013 11:16 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment begins with Vince McMahon getting out of his car at WWE headquarters in Connecticut and greeting employees as he makes his way to his office on the top floor of what was once known as TitanTowers.

The documentary portion of this release begins at the beginning, with information about Jess McMahon and Vince McMahon Sr, and how they began what we now know as WWE. Jess McMahon was a boxing promoter, his son Vince, turned it into a traditional regional professional wrestling promotion, and his son, the current head of WWE, Vince McMahon Jr, turned it into the multimedia conglomerate that we know today.

The talking heads are extremely relevant and well picked, it is nice to see the big names from wrestling’s history on here, talking about the history of WWE as a company and the wrestling business as a whole. »

WWE: 10 Reasons Roman Reigns Is The Future Following Survivor Series

26 November 2013 12:25 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It wasn’t just Randy Orton, John Cena, Cm Punk and Daniel Bryan grabbing the headlines at Survivor Series 2013 – the big man of the Shield, Roman Reigns, also stood out as an excellent contender for the wrestler of the night.

For the 28 year old Samoan American, it was his big night in the WWE. Fans will look back on Survivor Series 2013 as the night that the WWE anointed Reigns as their next big star. The Samoan took his opportunity and stepped up. Fans were chanting his name, and the pop he recieved when he pinned Rey Mysterio was the sound of a star being christened.

Having stripped back the rest of the Shield, fans witnessed Reigns having to take on the team of Goldust and Rey Mysterio. Reigns overcame the odds and demolished the pair with two vicious looking spears. He had already dispatched of two others from Team Mysterio earlier in the elimination match. »

Randy Orton Retains His Title During WWE Survivor Series 2013

25 November 2013 7:49 AM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Find out how Randy managed to take down The Big Show, then get all the results from one of the WWE’s biggest nights!

WWE Champion Randy Orton had the cards stacked against him when he faced The Big Show on Nov. 24 during the title match of WWE Survivor Series. As the organization’s official site points out, Randy has relied heavily on the interference of outside forces to retain his title, but Triple H made it clear that all Survivor Series face-offs would be strictly one-on-one. So how did the Viper manage to slither his way to victory?

Despite Triple H being adamant about no one interfering in the match, that’s exactly how Randy ended up winning! The Big Show was clearly going to steal the title from Randy — until Triple H, Kane and Stephanie McMahon showed up to distract the world’s largest athlete. Without physically intervening, »

The annual Thanksgiving tradition is back, as WWE presents the 27th "Survivor Series" pay per view.

WWE Survivor Series 2013 Predictions

24 November 2013 9:26 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The last of WWE‘s big four pay-per-views for the year is about to happen and it certainly doesn’t feel very eventful. Perhaps the reason why the Survivor Series card is so weak is because there is so much advanced planning involved for Wrestlemania XXX that anything special or worth watching is being saved for that. Whatever the case may be, here are our predictions for the 2013 Survivor Series.

World Heavyweight Champion John Cena vs. Alberto Del Rio

John Cena is going to win this match and lay to rest this holdover program. Cena’s return came at Del Rio’s expense and it’s time to move on. The match will be a good 15 minute fight, but Cena will pick up the victory and Del Rio will have to move on to a new program. This comes at the perfect time, because Mysterio is back and two have »

‘WWE Survivor Series 2013′ Preview

21 November 2013 8:32 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

We are only a few days away from one of the original “big four” WWE events of the year, an event that debuted in 1988 and has been a staple of annual WWE pay per view ever since, the Survivor Series.

Originally beginning as an event that hosted nothing but a card of eight-man elimination tag-team matches, with heels taking on faces throughout the night, Survivor Series has become a night where titles are on the line and there are a couple of traditional elimination contests kept in the mix to keep the fans of the original concept happy. I am a fan of the original Survivor Series contest and would love to see a full card of elimination matches with feuding superstars getting their hands on their adversaries in tag action and not one-on-one, for one night a year.

This year’s event has announced two traditional elimination matches so far, »

WWE Raw Results & Review (18.11.13)

19 November 2013 8:24 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Sorry for the lack of write-up last week, but here we are for a new results and review of this weeks’ episode of WWE Raw.

Last week’s event was held in the UK and Cena was attacked by Del Rio, Big Show attacked WWE Champion Randy Orton and slammed him through an announce table and the show ended with The Shield, The Wyatt Family, The Uso’s, Daniel Bryan and Cm Punk brawling in the ring.

Tonight’s Raw is being billed as WWE Raw Country, a themed Raw based on the fact that tonight’s show is being held in Nashville, Tennessee. Florida Georgia Line, a country band, will be playing live later apparently.

The show begins with Triple H’s music playing and The Game walking to the ring with his wifey, Stephanie McMahon. The two have smiles etched on their faces. Triple H talks about how »

WWE Raw 11/18/2013 Review: 5 Things We Learned

19 November 2013 6:28 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

This week’s Raw broadcast was the “go-home” show for one of the biggest PPV’s of WWE’s calendar year, Survivor Series. In recent weeks, WWE has done a less than stellar job getting the card for this PPV together, and an even worse job at promoting what  matches they already had on the card.

So let’s take a look at 5 things we learned from the final Raw that aired as we head towards the 2013 Survivor Series PPV:


5. Rey Mysterio Returns In Time For Survivor Series

At the end of Raw this week, Rey Mysterio returned to the WWE ring after a multi-month absence. In a nice surprise twist, his music hit just as the main event 12 man tag team match was wrapped up. It is believed that Rey will by the babyface mystery man in the traditional Survivor Series match that’s set for the PPV.

'WWE Raw' Nov. 18: Rey Mysterio returns, 'Survivor Series' looms

18 November 2013 9:22 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Previously on: Last week's show was in Europe and didn't really advance many storylines. The WWE Championship match for "Survivor Series" didn't get much attention, while the main event ended with Daniel Bryan and Cm Punk standing tall.

The big news: The final "WWE Raw" before "Survivor Series" wasn't all that different from the week before. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon were back, but WWE spent too much time talking about how it was a country music-themed episode of the show, complete with a performance by Florida Georgia Line that the live audience just didn't care about.

To make up for the feuding authority figures last week, Triple H and Stephanie put Vickie Guerrerro and Brad Maddox both in matches. Brad was destroyed and stretchered out, while Vickie kept faking that she was passing out and still lost her match.

Randy Orton and Big Show has almost no interaction, which »

‘WWE Straight to the Top: Money in the Bank Anthology’ DVD Review

9 November 2013 2:25 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Hosted by The Miz, the compilation features every Money in the Bank Ladder Match in history. The match debuted at WrestleMania 21 in 2005, quickly becoming a WrestleMania tradition and in 2010 proved so popular that it was given its own annual PPV event. Several top Superstars have been Money in the Bank winners including John Cena, Kane, Edge, Cm Punk (twice!), Rob Van Dam and many more. 11 of the first 12 winners have used the match as a springboard to winning a championship, and several times the match has helped a Superstar who has never win a World Championship break through to claim their first. Much like the Royal Rumble Match, the Money in the Bank match represents a golden opportunity for a Superstar to achieve immortality, and its entire lineage is presented here.

It is nice to see this match receive its own box-set release. The “Money in the Bank” concept »

WWE: 10 Great Wrestlers Who Are Now Retired

9 November 2013 5:45 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Retirement in Pro Wrestling is a strange concept to many wrestlers. Take for example Ric Flair, he was given the greatest send off in WWE history when he had a match of the year candidate with Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemenia 2008. Flair should be enjoying the leisure of being retired, safe in the knowledge his legacy is complete and ended in the best way. However, just a couple of years after that, Flair was wrestling in fairgrounds and to this day will happily jump in a ring for a few thousand dollars.

Then you have the guys who just refuse to retire. Kurt Angle is a man who had a broken neck in 1996, and in 2006 was such a physical wreck that WWE retired him from the company. Against common sense and physical well being Kurt is still wrestling today, the same goes for Rey Mysterio, he has been out injured most »

‘WWE 2K14′ Video Game Review

1 November 2013 8:04 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I have been buying wrestling video games since I was a kid, being a fan of wrestling for 21 of my 30 years, I have always found pleasure playing the games each year, and as I get older there is nostalgia to it also. Sure, not every year delivers a diamond of a game, but there’s always something to sink your teeth into regardless of the differing quality of the titles year upon year. WWE 2K14 uses that feeling of nostalgia that many adult fans feel to it’s benefit this year, with it’s well-documented and hyped “30 Years of WrestleMania” story-mode, a mode that features 40+ matches from each WrestleMania event since its inception almost thirty years ago.

This years game, featuring the super-famous pro-wrestler-turned-actor The Rock on its cover, is all about the upcoming WrestleMania 30 event, with it’s big story based on the past thirty years of the “grand-daddy »
