WWE Total Divas Season 5 Episode 12: Baby Talk

5 April 2016 8:53 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Paige is appearing a bit withdrawn this week on Total Divas — and it’s because she has a secret. Paige reveals she got pregnant at age 18, but lost the baby. She had a surgery to remove an adenoid cyst, which may prevent her from having children in the future. This is why all the talk about Rosa Mendes’ baby shower is bothering her so much. The Big Show sees she is upset and tries to comfort her. Paige gets asked to appear on MTV’s Ridiculousness, which she uses as an excuse to get out of attending the shower. The news doesn’t … Continue reading →

10 Biggest Booking Mistakes Of Roman Reigns' WWE Career

3 April 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The idea of a big push being all that separates fan favorites from becoming the biggest star in the world is spoken so often that it’s easy to start believing it. 

But the truth is rarely as simple as that. While there is no performer that wouldn’t benefit from having the full force of the booking committee on their side, a big push doesn’t mean much if it’s mismanaged. In fact, sometimes getting a botched ride to the top of the card can be worse for a wrestler than getting no push at all.  

There are few better examples of this than the career of Roman Reigns to this point. Whether or not you personally like him as a performer, it’s difficult to look back on some of the booking decisions of his career without shaking your head. There are times when it »

Forbes Estimates WWE’s 10 Biggest Earners For 2015

1 April 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

American business magazine Forbes has released its first-ever annual ranking of WWE’s top ten highest-paid wrestlers, and 15-time world champion John Cena has topped the list.

While there have been many estimates regarding WWE pay floating around on the Internet over the years, Forbes‘s new list represents the most accurate look thus far at what the company’s top superstars are earning. 

According to the publication, researchers analyzed “court documents, SEC filings and WWE’s booking contracts and spent hours speaking with industry sources” to gather the information.

The list – and the salaries of the ranked wrestlers – are as follows:

John Cena – $9.5 million Brock Lesnar – $6 million Triple H – $2.8 million Randy Orton – $2.7 million Seth Rollins – $2.4 million Roman Reigns – $2.1 million The Undertaker – $2 million The Big Show – $1.5 million Kane – $1.3 million Dean Ambrose – $1.1 million

Triple H, who only wrestled a single match in 2015, is also an outlier – he earned $1 million »

Despite being a (literally) huge deal in his native Japan, Akebono has got be the most obscure ‘celebrity’ to make a WrestleMania appearance. Having the sumo champion on the card was an obvious ploy to attract pay-per-view »

WWE And Tna: 7 Worst Moments Of The Week (Mar 26)

27 March 2016 1:04 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WrestleMania is close. So close you can smell it. And it stinks! It’s like being drenched in a mixture of Kane’s and Fake Kane’s sweat. There’s so many unanswered questions right now, that WWE may or may not bother to address, that it makes the show feel as lackluster as that time every announcer wore a toga to Mania.

For starters, what is Bray Wyatt going to be doing at the show? Why does no one bother to tell us that Kalisto already beat Ryback in a televised tournament match? And how did Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and their driver not see Roman Reigns walk towards them from approximately 200 feet away? And all they had to do to protect themselves was lock the doors or start driving!

The Big Show had the worst line of the week when he exclaimed that Andre the Giant »

WWE Hershey Live Event: 10 Interesting Observations

14 March 2016 9:22 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Erik Beaston

The Road to WrestleMania ran through Hershey, Pennsylvania Sunday night as the Superstars and Divas of World Wrestling Entertainment performed at an non-televised live event.

In a co-main event, Aj Styles challenged Kevin Owens for the WWE Intercontinental Championship while Kane and Big Show battled The Wyatt Family’s Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman in a Tornado Rules Hershey Street Fight. Yours truly was in attendance to witness those two bouts, as well as the rest of the action WWE unleashed on the Sweetest Place on Earth.

A show so close to WrestleMania, I could not wait to see what the reaction would be for some of the company’s biggest stars and the stories they would tell.

Needless to say, I was surprised by what I encountered.

What were the fans in attendance like? How were the performances of the men and women after a long weekend of work and travel? »

15 Most Shocking WrestleMania Moments Of All Time

12 March 2016 12:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Don Feria/AP

For over three decades, WrestleMania has provided WWE with countless memorable moments but for the most part, they were expected. Hulk Hogan defeating Andre The Giant, Stone Cold defeating Shawn Michaels to win his first WWE title, Daniel Bryan getting his happy ending at WrestleMania 30. They were still incredible, but at the beginning of the night, it was easy to predict that they would happen.

The truly shocking WrestleMania moments are actually few and far between. On the grandest stage of them all, the creative team plays it safe for the most part.

While we wait for the next shocking moment at WrestleMania, let’s take a look at the 15 most shocking moments from the first 31..

WWE WrestleMania 33 Orlando Location Confirmed?

3 March 2016 10:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WrestleMania 33’s location looks set to finally be announced. According to Justin Labar of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, next year’s show of shows will indeed be held at Orlando’s Citrus Bowl as recent rumours have suggested.

As we’ve noted many times, Orlando mayor Buddy Dyer has expressed loudly his interest in bringing either WrestleMania 33 or 34 to his hometown, and even flew to WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Ct to pitch the idea of holding one of the shows in the city.

This will mark the second time the Citrus Bowl has hosted WrestleMania, although the stadium was completely renovated in 2014. Orlando’s first WrestleMania outing came in 2008, when the twenty-fourth edition of the show saw Floyd Mayweather defeat The Big Show, Shawn Michaels beat Ric Flair to end “The Nature Boy’s” career, and The Undertaker topple Edge to win the World Heavyweight Championship. It was the »

Peter Bart: Think It’s Hard To Watch The Oscars? Try Attending

25 February 2016 2:42 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The Big Show may be a tough slog for Academy attendees this year. The show is too long, the audience too white, the security too languid and the women complain that their gowns, which look flashy on the red carpet, are miserable to sit in for three hours plus. No wonder their escorts complain obsessively about alcohol deprivation. No, that's not a review of the Oscars, it's a projected review of Sunday's Oscar ceremony – the live one.

10 Recent WWE PPVs That Were Worse Than WWE Fastlane 2016

23 February 2016 12:50 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Fastlane 2016 is in the books, and it was a disappointment. Despite a card that looked fairly solid from top to bottom, nothing really delivered the way fans had hoped. The matches that looked great (Aj Styles versus Chris Jericho, Brock Lesnar versus Roman Reigns versus Dean Ambrose) didn’t live up to the hype, and the ones that looked bad (The Wyatt Family versus The Big Show, Kane, and Ryback, an unannounced R-Truth versus Curtis Axel bout) were bad.

Still, problems with the in-ring content could be forgiven if the booking was strong, and Fastlane fell even harder in that regard. In an ending that was simultaneously predictable and infuriating, company-approved top babyface Roman Reigns pinned Dean Ambrose to earn a title shot at WrestleMania, then stared down WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H to hype up a weak ‘Mania main event.

Yes, Fastlane was a flop – especially »

WWE To Honor Daniel Bryan At Madison Square Garden

22 February 2016 1:23 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE has announced that its Road to WrestleMania house show scheduled for March 25 at Madison Square Garden has been designated as “Daniel Bryan Night.” Bryan will be in attendance and is expected to be honored in the ring.

On February 8, Bryan made his first appearance in a WWE ring in many months to announce his retirement from the sport of pro wrestling. His emotional goodbye speech lasted for the final half-hour of Monday Night Raw and drew tears from fans at Seattle’s KeyArena. At “Daniel Bryan Night,” the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion will get the opportunity to take a bow before his East Coast fans.

Several of the show’s matches have also been announced. In the main event, number one contender Roman Reigns will take on Sheamus, who will have the Triple H in his corner. Also confirmed are The Big Show versus Bray Wyatt, »
