Comic Book Review – WWE Royal Rumble Special #1

Liam Hoofe reviews WWE Royal Rumble Special #1…

WWE’s 31st annual Royal Rumble event will take place in a little under three weeks and to celebrate the occasion, Boom! Comics have released their latest anthology special, Royal Rumble #1. The anthology issues for the big four events have, thus far, been fairly hit and miss. The SummerSlam special, released back in August, was a brilliant collection of stories, while, the Survivor Series special was an inconsistent edition that couldn’t live up to the event it was representing. It gives me great pleasure to tell you then, that Royal Rumble, is a return to form for the series, telling four enjoyable stories from the event’s rich history.

The first of these stories is ‘To Be Number One’ which tells the story of Ric Flair’s 1992 Royal Rumble triumph, and the backstage events after the match. The 92 Rumble has a fond

The WWE today is still in full swing and is more popular than ever before but back in the day, when guys like Triple H, the Undertaker, and even Shawn Michaels were just getting started, the legends of the WWE, then WWF, ring still held sway.

Comic Book Review – WWE SummerSlam Special 2017

Liam Hoofe reviews Boom! Studios’ WWE SummerSlam Special 2017…

WWE SummerSlam is one of the company’s biggest PPV’s and it has a long and storied history spanning back 29 years. The latest WWE special, SummerSlam 2017, from Boom! Studios gives us four stories based on historical moments and matches from the show, lovingly recreating them for long time lovers of the WWE product.

The first story in the collection is I Wined and Dined with Kings and Queens, a panel based on the matchup between Dusty Rhodes and Macho Man Randy Savage from the 1990 edition of the show. Told from the perspective of a fan who can’t decide which of the two stars he is loyal to in the build-up to the match, the story is an affectionate love letter to being a younger fan. SummerSlam has always had a special place in my heart as a fan, it was the first PPV I watched,

Lucha Underground: The Cup Begins

The Cueto Cup Tournament began on Lucha Underground this week, seeing the competitors in Group A of the tournament facing off to see who would advance to the next round. The episode brought us some interesting matches as well as some storyline focus on the Rey Mysterio Jr. vs Johnny Mundo match that will occur at Ultima Lucha Tres.

The opening match between The Mack and Mala Suerte was hard fought but didn't need to be. Mala Suerte was not put in a position to look strong. He got some offense in during the match of course, preventing it from being a complete squash, yet Mala Suerte gained nothing from this match. The Mack came out a little worse for wear due to taking a long time to beat someone he should have soundly beaten. In a wrestling match, you ideally want to accomplish two things. You want a winner,

Could There Be a WWE Theme Park on the Way?

When I first watched pro wrestling as a kid it was amazing. Not only is it “real” when you’re a kid, it simply blows you away. Sports and entertainment rolled into one is the ultimate stimulus for a little dude who’s growing up. It’s why to this day I look back fondly on the old WWF and stars like Randy Savage, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Tito Santana, Hulk Hogan, Junkyard Dog, Jimmy Snuka, and the list goes on. But as a little kid little did I understand the profitability of such an organization. I think at the time most of

Returning WWE star plans revealed? Top wrestler signs with WWE – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

While Kenny Omega is kicking Adam Cole to the curb and replacing him with Marty Scurll in the Bullet Club, Finn Balor appears to have been laying the groundwork for his own new Balor Club addition – WWE reporter/interviewer Cathy Kelley, with the two being spotted Holding Hands In Public!

As fun as who’s dating who gossip can be in WWE, I’m more interested in Balor’s long-distance relationships. Namely, the one with the promotion that made his name, New Japan Pro Wrestling, which Finn paid tribute to on Twitter as their Best of the Super Juniors 2017 tournament got underway. Look – a Zack Sabre Jr. in the wild.

WWE blamed for cancelled Wrestlemania match, WWE wrestlers released | WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Just several months after production began on Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s movie about WWE star Paige, another Hollywood wrestling biopic is about to be greenlit: a film about the life of Vince McMahon, quite aptly called Pandemonium.

The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that TriStar Pictures have snapped up the project after Andrew Lazar – the producer behind 2014’s box office smash American Sniper – acquired the rights. He’s also the man responsible for Cats & Dogs, Jonah Hex and Mortdecai, but those are in no way as impressive.

The President of WWE Studios Michael Luisi is also producing, and the project is said to have Vince McMahon’s blessing. Which probably means the movie will have no mention of Randy Savage, B. A. Star isn’t just a PR exercise, Wrestlemania always breaks attendance records, WCW never stood a chance,

Killer Wolf: Len Kabasinski – A Legend Of Cult Cinema

Article by Mark Longden

Len Kabasinski had a childhood much like many of us – grew up loving genre movies (for him, kung-fu and sci-fi, and sci-fi-kung-fu), but unlike many of us, when he grew up he had the drive and determination to parlay that into a filmmaking career which has now lasted over a decade and gone from strength to strength.

His first film was a little gem called “Swamp Zombies!!!” (yes, three exclamation marks) While it looks a lot like the legions of other no-budget forests-based horror movies that we’ve been subjected to in recent years, it’s differentiated by two things that would become Kabasinski trademarks – oddball casting and excellent fight scenes. The latter can be explained by his being a nationally ranked martial artist and knowing lots of people who can fight well on camera; but the former is probably the first reason I became a fan,

Secret Empire #1 Trailer And Preview Images Surface

Although we gave you a look inside the special zero issue not long ago, many of you probably wondered when you’d get the same treatment for Secret Empire #1. Well, that day is today, as we can now present more information pertaining to what will undoubtedly be Marvel’s biggest crossover event for the year 2017.

Our first treat to offer is that of the trailer the publisher itself has put together in order to help spread the word. In it, series writer Nick Spencer and Tom Brevoort, Svp of Publishing, hype the event. Among the many interesting things to be found here are the former divulging that this grandiose tale was actually part of his first pitch for Captain America: Sam Wilson. Although the House of Ideas has certainly been no stranger to event books in the past decade or so, it’s quite refreshing to hear that they

The Undertaker: a look at his 23-1 WrestleMania record

Gavin Jasper Apr 3, 2017

As the Undertaker announces his retirement, we look back at his Wrestlemania record...

This article is from Den Of Geek Us.

WrestleMania XXX was an eventful show. It calmed the fears of those afraid that it would crash the WWE Network and cause major damage to the company's latest venture. Cesaro broke away from his tag team and broke out by winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Trophy. Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, and the Rock hung out in the ring and had a blast. Mr. T and Roddy Piper buried the hatchet. Daniel Bryan went through an endless supply of punishment before being defeating Triple H, Randy Orton, and Batista.

That was a big moment and a major story, but the thing people will be talking about for a long time is the end of Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar. For the first time ever, Undertaker lost at

Hulk Hogan vs Andre the Giant- Wrestlemania 3

“The irresistible force meeting the immovable object!”

Without Wrestlemania 3, it’s possible that Wrestlemania could have gone the way of Starrcade. The first two Wrestlemania’s, while star studded and showing some glimpses of what the event eventually became, were more events of their time.

A Video Of Every Time Chris Jericho Returned To The WWE

When you think of the biggest names in wrestling guys like Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair immediately come to mind. They’re the kings. They’re the guys who pretty much revolutionized the business. But there are other names that are also way up there. Names like The Undertaker, Sting, Shawn Michaels, Randy Savage, The Rock, and plenty of others. While wrestlers don’t have the biggest shelf lives in the industry there’s one name that’s been a constant for longer than any of us realize: Chris Jericho.
