10 Mma Fighters Who Tried Out Acting

22 July 2014 7:08 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lionsgate

We’ve seen many pro wrestlers move from the world of choreographed fighting to the movie business. Given they’re required to preform on the mic as part of their pro wrestling duties, WWE stars seem to make a decent go of it, at least some of the time: Hulk Hogan played Thunderlips in Rocky III, but he also headlined in Mr. Nanny – not exactly a great career move, acting wise.

The most successful crossover star from the wrestling realm to the movie business is, of course, The Rock – Dwayne Johnson has actual acting ability to go with his charisma, which is what propelled him past Hogan levels in regards to his acting career, but there have been others: John Cena, Kane, The Big Show, Triple H, Randy Orton, Kevin Nash, Diamond Dallas Page, Mick Foley – they’ve all tried their hand at movies and television shows, mostly in WWE productions. »

7 Worst Members Of The Nwo

12 July 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The New World Order was one of the greatest stables in the history of wrestling. It’s also the group that can claim that they had the most members too. From the time it started in the summer of 1996 to the time it officially died in the summer of 2002 they had over 40 different people in the group.

When the group started as a trio at WCW Bash at the Beach on July 7, 1996 with Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall as the original members it truly was the strongest force in professional wrestling. Within a month, others started to join and by the end of that year there were over a dozen people that had joined it.

In 1998 there were two versions of the Nwo, which was Nwo Hollywood (black & white) and Nwo Wolfpac (black & red). Those stables dominated the company for much of the year until they decided to »

Randy Savage ‘Likely’ For WWE Hall Of Fame 2015

16 June 2014 5:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Randy Savage is more likely than ever to go into the WWE Hall of Fame, according to the latest figure four weekly newsletter.

This is coming off the back of a new WWE DVD / Blu Ray project which will feature a full documentary on the Macho Man. Cooperating and being interviewed for the new Savage release is his brother Lanny Poffo. This increased featuring of Savage and the blessing of his family make a WWE 2015 Hall of Fame induction a strong possibility. The Newsletter report believes that the most likely line up for next year’s Hall of Fame class will be The Rock, Savage, Kevin Nash, Victoria or Mickie James and Rikishi.

In analysing the Savage move, it isn’t too surprising to see WWE edge closer to finally recognising his legend. Triple H is taking the reigns off of Vince McMahon a bit and pushing the importance of WWE history. »

10 Reasons WCW Beat WWE 84 Weeks In A Row

11 June 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

On September 4, 1995, World Championship Wrestling produced the first episode of Monday Nitro live from the Mall of America in Minnesota. With a card featuring Brian Pillman vs. Jushin “Thunder” Liger, Sting vs. Ric Flair and WCW Champion Hulk Hogan vs. Big Bubba Rogers, the show forever changed professional wrestling. It featured matches involving marquee names and relegated enhancement matches, once a staple of televised wrestling, to the company’s syndicated shows. More importantly, it forced Vince McMahon’s then-World Wrestling Federation to adapt or perish.

For months, the WWF and WCW would trade ratings victories. That all changed on May 27, 1996 when Scott Hall made a surprise appearance on Nitro. He indicated that there was an invasion underway and that the war with the company was looming. The debut of Kevin Nash and the shocking heel turn by Hulk Hogan ignited the Monday Night Wars between Raw and Nitro. »

20 Best Matches In WCW History

9 June 2014 12:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

World Championship Wrestling officially came into existence as a professional wrestling company (rather than just a catchy television headline to promote the National Wrestling Alliance) in November 1988. With Ted Turner as its financial benefactor, the revamped company eventually severed ties with its Nwa roots and grew to heights few had thought possible with a program called WCW Monday Nitro. The Monday Night Wars offered the best of times and the worst of times for WCW, ultimately driving the promotion into the ground.

It is hard to believe that it has been over thirteen years since WCW ceased to exist. More than any time since the initial years passed its buyout by WWE in March 2001, the wrestling world has been talking about WCW. So, today, we celebrate it by looking back at the top 20 matches in its history. Nothing before November 1988 was considered; just matches from World Championship Wrestling as we knew it. »

10 Events That Led To The Demise Of WCW

29 May 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

In the world of professional wrestling, there are two types of storylines: there are those that are obviously fake, and those that are obviously fake that blend the line between kayfabe and reality. During the mid-90’s, World Championship Wrestling relied on the latter to overtake its rival World Wrestling Federation in the ratings war by turning perennial face Hulk Hogan into a bad guy and forming the New World Order.

The stable was formed under the guise of WWF employees invading WCW, although all employees were under contract with WCW. Originally consisting of Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Hulk Hogan, the group would eventually feature basically every jobber on the roster and his mother, and would go down as arguably the most influential faction in the history of professional wrestling.

In case anyone reading is not familiar with the ending of this story, spoiler alert: WCW eventually »

7 Reasons Mickie James Deserves WWE Hall Of Fame Induction

23 May 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The WWE Hall of Fame means a lot of things to different groups of people. To WWE performers, it’s a huge honor to be recognized with their peers. To optimistic wrestling fans, it’s an opportunity to pay tribute to the men and women we respect so much for putting their bodies on the line to entertain us.

To another group of fans, it’s a flawed system because there are people in there that probably shouldn’t be (like Koko B Ware) while deserving huge names like Randy Savage are not in yet for one reason or another. Those arguments can be made for or against certain people forever. What we can all agree on is that the WWE Hall of Fame isn’t perfect, but it’s still a great way to honor deserving talents on the night prior to WrestleMania.

The Undertaker: 10 Best WWE Stories From Shoot Interviews

17 May 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe

The Undertaker character is the stuff of legend in WWE, a twenty year veteran who has left a legacy of some of the greatest wrestling matches of all times.

He’s also proved to be a legend ‘behind the scenes’ too. Undertaker is the resident WWE locker room leader, a union figure of sorts who functions as the bridge between Vince McMahon and the wrestling crew. Whenever you hear former talent talk about the WWE, they always reference The Undertaker in tones of respect and appreciation.

Not to say he was always a good guy by any means… he was one of the key men in the backstage ‘wrestler court’ which hazed newer talent and dished out ‘punishment’ to those who betrayed the code of the locker room. Despite this, while the likes of ‘wrestling court’ veterans like Jbl and Bob Holly caused resentment in younger wrestlers, Undertaker always »

Pinfall - A WWE Column #012

2 May 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Normal 0 false false false En-gb X-none X-none

There are some things in life that you never imagine even in your wildest dreams that you'll end up doing. Sitting in a small theatre in London with 400 like minded fans listening to Shawn Michaels talk was definitely one of those things for me, but this last week my good lady wife Deborah (who also took the pictures accompanying this column) and I ended up doing just that.

We'd been to see the Wolf Pac last year and thoroughly enjoyed an evening of banter between Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman and Scott Hall (aka Diesel, X-Pac and Razor Ramon) once the initial poor organisation woes were overcome, but will all due respect to these three guys, this was Shawn Michaels, the Heart Break Kid. This was Mr Wrestlemania!

I'd kind of expected Hbk to be a decent guy, and a great speaker, based on »

‘WWE: WCW’s Greatest PPV Matches Vol. 1′ Blu-ray Review

30 April 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Since WWE purchased WCW and the vast video library that came along with it, there have been numerous releases devoted to WCW related content, from the Goldberg set, to the Best of Nitro stuff, down to the Nwo release, but this is the first time WWE has taken a look at the best matches from the rich history of WCW’s Pay-Per-View’s. So here it is, volume one in the greatest matches from the PPV years of WCW.

WCW had some great PPV shows over the years of their existence. From Starrcade to Halloween Havoc, Superbrawl to Uncensored, Road Wild to Sin. Okay, ignore Sin, pretend I didn’t say that.

Here, in this 3 DVD/2 Bd set, you get over 20 matches ranging from 1987 until 2001 and the quality is, for the most-part, very high. From true wrestling greats, such as Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Sting, Vader, Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, »

WWE Wrestler Death Rates Investigated

22 April 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

A lot of people have been talking about Benjamin Morris’ 538 piece, “Are Pro Wrestlers Dying at an Unusual Rate?”

Like Morris, I am neither an actuarial scientist nor a demographer. So, our interpretations of the data should be taken with a grain of salt.  My results were somewhat different from Morris’ due to a difference data set and changes in how we calculated actuarial predictions.

Differences in methodology from Morris

I also used Social Security Actuarial Life Tables, but my “expected mortality rates” for the age groups were not the same as Morris’.  For each wrestler, I calculated what their age would have been as of today.  Then, based on gender, I looked up the number of lives (out of 100,000) that were expected to still be alive and converted that to a percentage. His analysis looked at wrestlers who were on 20+ WWF PPVs through 2002.  I went with a »

Review: WWE Royal Rumble 2014 (DVD)

20 April 2014 3:16 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Normal 0 false false false En-gb X-none X-none

I said it last year in my review of 2013’s Royal Rumble but of the four main WWE Pay-Per-Views – the other three being Survivor Series, SummerSlam and, of course, Wrestlemania – it’s the Rumble that is my favourite, and invariably the most fun. 2014’s edition was no exception, but as good as the matches were, it may well end up being remembered for two things, the first being Cm Punk’s final WWE appearance, and the second being the night that the WWE Universe became a credible voice that has affected real change ever since.

As at the time of writing this review, Chicago’s favourite wrestling son was still Awol after walking out of the WWE the night after the Rumble, and given that he was a no show at Wrestlemania XXX it looks like he could be gone for good, but »

‘WWE Royal Rumble 2014′ Blu-ray Review

11 April 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

So, here we are, officially on the road to WrestleMania, the time of year where WWE pull out all the stops in order to sell as many PPV’s as possible come April. Royal Rumble has always been the beginning of this segment of the year and often is the time when WWE brings in popular faces, pushes people higher up the card and creatively attempts to make the product red hot in time for the grandest stage of them all.

2014 has started both badly and well, in different ways, and the Royal Rumble event really highlighted those reasons better than I can explain with metaphors, so let’s get into the review shall we?

The pre-show match (included as an extra on both the DVD and Blu-ray release) features the reigning WWE Tag Team Champions, Cody Rhodes and Goldust, defending their belts against a team who last competed for »

WWE World And Insiders React To Death Of The Ultimate Warrior

9 April 2014 1:36 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The tragic death of Ultimate Warrior, aged 54, has provoked numerous tributes from within the wrestling industry. At this time there are no further details to add to our earlier report, however industry expert Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio has commented that ”everyones going to think enlarged hearts and that era. He had injuries but I didn’t know about any health problems.”

Meltzer doesn’t want to say anything else on the situation as we await further details.

Warrior’s career was filled with controversy, he was a mainstream star and WWF Champion, but backstage he faced criticism of ego and selfishness. Today it’s a different story, the wrestling industry tributes are telling the story of a caring family man and good friend. He really cared about his fans, terming them his ‘warriors’. TMZ is noting that Warrior was in good spirits and making time for »

WWE: 7 Things You Never Say To Wrestlers

1 April 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WrestleMania week is upon us and with it comes several opportunities to meet hundreds of wrestlers if you’re in the New Orleans area this weekend. World Wrestling Entertainment is holding its annual Axxess session from Thursday through Sunday with every superstar appearing as well as some legends too.

There’s also a Wrestlecon event right nearby featuring a lot of legends like Bret Hart, Sting, Kevin Nash, current Tna star Kurt Angle and many others. In addition to all of that, there are other companies like Ring of Honor and Dragon Gate having events in the area as well. It’s cool to meet wrestlers even if you have to pay $30 for a photo to do. Want an autograph too? It might be $50 for those.

If you go to Axxess, it costs about $45 to get in, your ticket is good for four hours and there aren’t additional charges. »

WWE Exclusive Interview: Lita Talks Hall Of Fame And Life After Wrestling

31 March 2014 2:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Amy_%22Lita%22_Dumas.jpg

She was not your typical Diva.

Lita was gorgeous and athletic, for sure, but she was also a tattooed bad girl whose punk-rock aesthetic perfectly captured the Attitude Era’s edgy allure.

Success did not come overnight for Amy Dumas. Before she became Lita, she travelled solo to Mexico City to learn the craft of wrestling from luchadors.

When fame (and infamy) came in WWE — thanks partly to risque storylines culled from messy real-life romances, and partly due to some outstanding matches — she was a show-stealer whose eventual Hall of Fame induction seemed assured.

With that induction now just around the corner, WhatCulture caught up with Lita for an exclusive chat about wrestling, her post-wwe life and, of all things, vegan cheese.

WhatCulture: Do you have a favorite match against Trish Stratus, looking back on your long rivalry?

WWE: Scott Hall’s 10 Greatest Career Moments

31 March 2014 1:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

In 1992, a brash new bad guy entered World Wrestling Entertainment and wasted little time making an impact. Known as Razor Ramon, he would align himself with Ric Flair in the Nature Boy’s rivalry with “Macho ManRandy Savage. His matches with Savage, Bret Hart, Mr. Perfect and the 123 Kid established him as a fine in-ring performer and his character (and the conviction with which he was portrayed) set him apart from the other more goofy gimmicks of the time.

The machismo that he exuded led to Ramon becoming a fan favorite and one of the marquee stars in Vince McMahon’s promotion. A leader of the New Generation initiative, Ramon battled Shawn Michaels in classic contests including WrestleMania X’s epic ladder match.

One of the most popular stars of the era, Ramon caught the eye of opposing promoters, leading to an impressive contract offer from World Championship Wrestling »

10 WCW Greats That WWE Didn’t Know What To Do With

26 March 2014 12:22 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

When you talk about WCW wrestlers who rose to even greater prominence in WWE, the list reads like a Who’s Who of professional wrestling: “Stone ColdSteve Austin, Mick Foley, Kevin Nash, Eddie Guerrero, the Undertaker, Chris Jericho and Hhh, just to name a few. All had varying levels of success in WCW before jumping to WWE and becoming world champions and some of the biggest stars of our generation.

However, that does not mean that WWE had the magic touch when it came to taking a WCW star and turning him or her into a household name. In fact, in several cases, WWE dropped the ball and turned what should have been easy money into a dud. These are wrestlers who either were well established or were poised for a breakout and for whatever reason, superstardom never materialized.

WWE: 10 Biggest Missed Opportunities In WrestleMania History

25 March 2014 3:04 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Wrestlemania is the single biggest event in the WWE calendar. This juggernaut of wrestling prowess continues to captivate audiences year on year, with the biggest talent getting the biggest pops from the biggest crowds.

Behind the scenes of those intoxicating wins and devastating misses are a writing team: a writing team whose formula doesn’t always hit the mark. For every cheer-inducing moment, there are a handful of throwaway spots and forgettable matches. But over the course of a four hour long PPV, they can be forgiven for letting a few fillers slip through the net.

What is much harder for fans to let slide are those moments where the tension builds, the chants reach ear-splitting levels and the excitement boils over… all for it to fall on its ass in a matter of seconds. And Wrestlemania’s history is blemished with these missed opportunities.

For an event that promises greatness, »
