Bruce Willis Replaced Sgt. Slaughter In G.I. Joe: Retaliation

9 August 2012 8:10 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

During a recent interview with The Score's Arda Ocal, former World Wrestling Federation Champion Sgt. Slaughter recounts how a conflict between two toy companies has prevent him from making a cameo in G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Sgt. Slaughter (Robert Remus) has the unique honor of being the first G.I. Joe figure based on a real life person. The likeness is of the Sarge, but the backstory is for the most part fabricated. In the G.I. Joe universe Sgt. Slaughter is a drill instructor. His character appeared in six episodes of the original 1980's Sunbow cartoon, two of the Marvel comic books, and G.I. Joe: The Movie. His G.I. Joe action figures are some of the most popular figures ever produced in the G.I. Joe toyline. G.I. Joe Retaliation stars Channing Tatum, D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Park, Adrianne Palicki, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, »

23 July 2012 11:53 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Last night’s 1,000th episode of WWE’s Money Night Raw comes from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri with Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler on commentary.

The show kicks off with a new intro. Another video then plays that looks back at some of the memorable moments from the past 1,0000 episodes, including some of the saddest moments in the history of the show such as Eddie Guerrero’s tribute night. The video plays for four minutes with lots and lots of clips.

Vince McMahon kicks off the show from the middle of the ring. A “thank you Vince” chant starts and Vince welcomes us to Monday Night Raw and then introduces D-Generation X and the music plays as Shawn Michaels and Triple H comes to the ring.

Michaels says he needs to catch his breath from all the running around. Hbk says something feels missing and »

WWE Raw General Manager Countdown #8 – Sgt. Slaughter

12 July 2012 6:17 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Continuing the countdown of the Top Ten Gm’s Raw has ever had, we make our way through with a WWE Legend amongst the ranks. After Shawn Michaels made the number 9 spot, a famous enemy of the Degenerate slips into the shoes of number 8…

Sgt. Slaughter: August 1997 – November 1998

Sgt. Slaughter is a former WWF Champion and WWE Hall of Famer. A man who was once one of the most hated characters in wrestling and has since become one of the most loved.

Becoming the WWE’s first ever Commissioner, Slaughter returned to the WWE after an almost five year hiatus in 1997. His role was to book various matches and be the point of authority. The then WWF felt that a voice was needed to instil some form of direction to their shows, rather than matches already being dictated before hand with no physical presence directing the events.

Vickie Guerrero To Guest Host WWE Raw & SmackDown Next Week

19 June 2012 11:54 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It was announced at Tuesday’s WWE SmackDown tapings that Vickie Guerrero will be the Interim General Manager of Raw and SmackDown next week. For reasons unexplained, The Great Khali will be her assistant.

On this week’s Raw it was announced that until the WWE Board of Directors appoint new General Managers of both shows (which we imagine will probably happen at the 1,000th celebrations next month) there will be temporary hosts of the show each week, all of which will be former General Managers and Commissioners of Raw & SmackDown.

Mick Foley was the first guest host of the show this week and we now know Vickie Guerrero will be next week’s.

For future names that could serve as Interim Gm’s we are likely to see Teddy Long, William Regal, Paul Heyman, Vince McMahon (this one seems certain given his ability to boost ratings), Stephanie McMahon, Shawn Michaels, »

WWE Working On Major Storyline For 1000th Raw

7 June 2012 2:07 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As we reported earlier, WWE creative have been told to treat the July 23rd 1,000th Raw as a major pay-per-view event. The majority of the writing team and officials’ time and effort right now is not focused on WWE No Way Out pay-per-view on June 17th but the celebratory Raw that begins a permanent move to three hours.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE creative are being pushed hard to come up with a huge angle that will dominate the summer, similar to how the Nexus and Cm Punk angles caught on with fans in the past two years. Specifically they have been told to devise a “knock your socks off” type angle that will broaden interest to fans who haven’t watched WWE regularly for the past year.

WWE officials currently feel the current product is stagnant and are concerned about the poor ratings.

Dave Meltzer also reports that WWE Legends Gene Okerlund, »

He also announces that he will take on the team of Daniel Bryan and Alberto Del Rio tonight with his partner… Gene Okerlund.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Star, Has Nerdy Conversation About New Sequel And 'Star Wars'

15 February 2012 9:08 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

While "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" director Jon Chu and its producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, make it clear that this sequel is technically not a reboot, that didn't stop star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson from calling it a reboot. And if you've ever had the opportunity to stand next to the 6' 4" tall The Rock for a few minutes, I can tell you now from experience, you find yourself slightly compelled to just take his word for it. I had the chance to talk to Johnson for a few minutes at the American International Toy Fair on Monday about his role as Roadblock in the G.I. Joe sequel -- and Roadblock's newfound relation to Arashikage. If we could have only been a fly on the wall when the adolescent Rock sent his G.I. Joe figures on a date with Princess Leia... (Yes, warning, this is a very nerdy interview with The Rock. »
