10 Lamest WWE Survivor Series Teams Ever

23 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Survivor Series 2014 is looming and it looks to be an absolute cracker. The pay-per-view event is so called because, traditionally, it consists of a number of matches in which two teams, usually made up of four or five wrestlers, battle until all of one team have been eliminated, with the remaining members of the opposing team being the “survivors”.

The stipulation is dying out somewhat and this year’s event only has two matches of that nature on its schedule. One of them is a four versus four Divas match and the other is the much-anticipated Team Cena (John Cena, Dolph Ziggler, Big Show, Erick Rowan and Ryback) versus Team Authority (Seth Rollins, Kane, Mark Henry, Rusev and Luke Harper) match, which could see the WWE’s power hierarchy being completely overhauled, depending on the outcome.

Those are two great, tough teams, of which there have been many »

5 Reasons WWE Survivor Series 2014 Is The Must See Event Of The Year

19 November 2014 1:24 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE’s 28th annual Survivor Series takes place this coming Sunday night, originating from St. Louis, Missouri, and available for *Free.99* on the WWE Network. The show is largely built around the main event traditional Survivor Series match between Team Cena (John Cena, Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, Big Show and Erick Rowan) versus Team Authority (Seth Rollins, Luke Harper, Kane, Mark Henry and Rusev).

While the main event was hastily set up (from a storyline perspective) from out of nowhere, WWE’s in one of those strange spaces where the company has a few simmering to a boil talents and storylines that given that the show is available for free, probably makes it great for you, as well as your “away from wrestling for awhile” friends, or even casual observers to watch.

It can be opined that that there aren’t more than five reasons though to watch the Survivor Series. »

10 Greatest Sole Survivors In WWE History

19 November 2014 12:23 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

What does it mean to be a sole survivor in World Wrestling Entertainment?

To be a sole survivor at the company’s annual Survivor Series pay-per-view means a Superstar has overcome tremendous odds, not mention physical pain and mental anguish, to emerge victoriously in an elimination tag match when he had no other partners to lean on. He, or she, proved their toughness on a grand stage, often times outlasting some of the top competitors on the planet and overcoming significant number disadvantages to stand victoriously.

In the 27 years that Vince McMahon and company have produced the fall classic, numerous of the industry’s elite stars have outlasted their opposition to become sole survivors of the traditional elimination tag bouts. Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Randy Orton and the late Ultimate Warrior are just a few who have show great grit, toughness,  determination and drive to emerge from the »

9 Wrestling Stipulations That Are Better Than Getting Fired

19 November 2014 11:59 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

It was revealed on the November 19th/22nd edition of SmackDown that (Spoilers!) if John Cena’s 5-man Survivor Series team loses, they will all be fired (insert dramatic music here).

However, given the past history of ‘firing’ storylines, the match is no longer believable in that either team could win. Basically two possible scenarios could unfold: Team Cena wins, signaling the end of the Authority; or Team Authority wins, and team Cena is fired, only to be re-hired shortly afterwards, with no mention of this stipulation ever existing in the first place.

It is, without doubt, one of the stupidest and least believable stipulations possible. Even the youngest fans are smart enough to realize that a WWE without Cena is like a car without its front wheels.

Therefore, instead of using the ‘firing’ stipulation, here are 9 alternative stipulations that the WWE could’ve used instead. These could »

WWE Smackdown Spoilers: 7 Things You Need To Know (Nov 18th)

19 November 2014 10:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

This week’s edition of Smackdown took place in Knoxville, Tennessee on Tuesday night. It was the last WWE show that took place before Survivor Series. There was a major stipulation announced on the show, which we’ll get to in this look at the spoilers of the show.

Give WWE credit for not Smackdown a throwaway show this week because they have done that in the recent past. Some weeks if you watch Smackdown they barely do anything to make you feel like it is a “must see” show, but this week it has definitely got people talking. When the spoilers came out last night, there was a lot of buzz on social media about it.

Prior to Smackdown, WWE taped and aired Main Event on WWE Network. Tyson Kidd and his wife Natalya beat Rose and The Bunny in an “Inter-species Match” to further the angle with Rose and the Bunny. »

10 Times John Cena Got Totally Owned

19 November 2014 1:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

John Cena is one of the most consistently pushed wrestlers in the history of World Wrestling Entertainment. Even when WWE tries to make him a sympathetic figure he doesn’t come across that way at all.

Should we really feel sorry for the guy that gets more title shots than anybody and has been in more PPV main events than anybody in WWE history? No we should not.

If there is a time when Cena deserves sympathy it’s when he takes a beating or loses a big match. This is a look at Cena’s career in terms of big moments where he got “owned” meaning those times when he either lost a big match or was attacked in a major way.

It’s part of the wrestling business to have a guy get beat up to set up a big match and Cena’s certainly done »

Romans Reigns Advertised To Return Sooner Than Expected

18 November 2014 5:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

Roman Reigns is scheduled to return from his hernia injury sooner than expected. WWE are now advertising ‘The Big Dog’ to be back in December, with appearances on the annual holiday tour. The dates will include 12/20 from Sioux Falls, South Dakota which will be the weekend after TLC and 12/27 from Cincinnati, Ohio.

Given that Reigns will be working those shows, there is speculation that he’ll be back on television the night after the TLC pay per view. A return on Raw would be the beginning of his journey towards Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 31, where he is expected to challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Initially, it had been feared that he wouldn’t be able to return from injury until January. The injury that had put him out of action was an incarcerated hernia. There was even the suggestion that he might miss the Rumble, »

10 Times John Cena Embraced Being A Heel

18 November 2014 3:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

John Cena is one of the most unique superstars in professional wrestling history. He inspires something in fans that no other wrestler does. He’s a hero to many. His “Never Give Up” and “Hustle. Loyalty. Respect” mottos speak to them in their every day lives. On the other hand, many fans cannot stand John Cena. They find him corny and mock his wrestling ability and his “Five Moves of Doom”.

Outside of the ring, there’s no question that John Cena is a good dude. He’s granted more Make-a-Wish requests than any other person in the world, and his message is legitimately inspiring to terminally ill children. He’s also an incredible ambassador for WWE and by extension, professional wrestling. When WWE began to expand to China, Cena learned Mandarin so he could connect with the new fans as best as possible.

For those reasons, and many more, »

10 Major Shocks We Could See At Survivor Series 2014

18 November 2014 2:50 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

As one of WWE’s “Big Four” pay-per-views, Survivor Series has always played host to some of the most memorable and iconic moments in history. Superstars such as The Rock, The Undertaker and Kurt Angle made their debuts at the event.

Many championships have changed hands in the illustrious history of the show, having been won by the likes of Shawn Michaels, John Cena, Batista and others. Of course, Survivor Series was also the home of the Montreal Screwjob in 1997, the single most controversial occurrence ever in wrestling.

But what else is in store for Survivor Series in years to come?

While Survivor Series has lost its appeal in recent years, WWE has done a solid job of creating buzz around this year’s instalment. In building intrigue for the major multi-man main event pitting Team Cena against Team Authority, WWE has given fans the feeling that anything can happen. »

10 Nxt Superstars Who Will Dominate WWE 2015

18 November 2014 2:08 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE’s developmental territory Nxt has come on leaps and bounds over the last year with an increasing number of its stars making waves on the main roster.

The likes of Rusev, The Wyatts, Paige and Bo Dallas all started with the Florida based promotion alongside Messrs Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins which shows how integral Nxt has become to WWE.

The Nxt superstars are given a platform to develop a niche following before taking it to next level on Raw and Smackdown.

Such is the state of the current programming, many see Nxt as WWE’s most compelling brand which is as much a complement to the up and comers as it is a detriment to the main roster.

The nature of the beast means WWE needs to be exceptional at forward planning. They need to know how the storylines of today will end and where the storylines of tomorrow will then start. »

WWE And Tna: 7 Worst Moments Of The Week (Nov 16)

16 November 2014 2:19 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

“What are they going to do? Where are they going to work?” Michael Cole asked the SmackDown audience about what Stephanie McMahon and Triple H would do if their team lost at Survivor Series. I don’t know Michael, maybe not work for the rest of their entire lives and sit on their tens of millions of dollars? Maybe start up a new company? Maybe buy Tna? Okay, so that one won’t happen. Unless they ended up going crazy in a Howard Hughes type way.

This week in wrestling John Cena claimed that Ryback was held back by The Authority. Though I’m not sure when that happened. Cena also said that Zack Ryder volunteered to join his Survivor Series team and then he got hurt, which was odd since The Authority didn’t have anything to do with that one. And we also had the »

5 Reasons John Cena Heel Turn Is Impossible

15 November 2014 12:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Few people in WWE history are capable of receiving more of a polarizing response than John Cena. The face of the WWE for more or less 10 years, Cena has been at the top of the company since he won his first WWE Championship at WrestleMania 21. Since then, Cena has played the role of the never-say-die superhero, always overcoming all obstacles and defending the virtues of ‘Hustle, Loyalty, Respect’.

However, many fans think that he has become stale, with a growing number of them firmly believing that he should turn heel. They think that John Cena the good guy has long overstayed his welcome, and that a new character should take his place.

This view is echoed by many, including those who believe that he will turn heel at Survivor Series. Even Cena himself made remarks about the idea, confirming to his fan base that the Cena we »

WWE Survivor Series 2002: 5 Awesome Things And 5 That Sucked

15 November 2014 12:29 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The 2002 edition of WWE Survivor Series is one of the most memorable Survivor Series events because it took place in the world’s most famous arena Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 17, 2002.

It’s a famous show because it was headlined by the first ever Elimination Chamber match in WWE history. Going into it we had no idea what the Elimination Chamber was going to look like. They had all these hype videos and descriptions of it, but until we saw it we really didn’t know. The main event featured six men battling for Triple H’s World Title with the main focus on the returning Shawn Michaels, who was wrestling in only his second match of the last four years.

There were a lot of great things happening on the Smackdown brand at this time. It was when Paul Heyman was booking the »

20 Stupidest Products WWE Have Ever Licensed

14 November 2014 7:51 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE is a merchandising juggernaut. Though the average TV viewer is over 40 years old and doesn’t put much of his disposal income toward John Cena pendants and wristbands, kids make up a healthy portion of the audience, especially at house shows. At these live events, t-shirts, replica belts, and other assorted items sell like water on a hot day, lining Vince McMahon’s coffers with cash.

Sometimes, during boom periods, wrestling merchandise resonates with people of all ages, and actually becomes cool. In the late 90s, Austin 3:16 and nWo shirts were everywhere, and DVDs, calendars, and other intuitive products sold well. The problem is that WWE – like all corporations – is a greedy entity, but unlike others, it doesn’t seem to realize that discretion is the better part of valor. For every Austin 3:16 shirt, there are dozens that it wouldn’t be prudent to wear in public. »

11 John Cena Scandals You Won’t Believe

14 November 2014 7:17 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

facebook

John Cena is the face of the WWE franchise. He’s a proven draw and commercial enterprise, making him Vince McMahon’s most valuable wrestler. What’s most impressive about Cena “being the man” is his longevity in the role. It is close to ten years now that he’s been positioned in the Champion / top of the card spot. Just think about that for a moment… Austin lasted three years, Rock three years. Cena truly is a force to be reckoned with. The likes of Cm Punk have came and gone in the time that Cena has been delivering every single night.

Work rate is what makes him the number one guy. Many wrestlers want to be the champ, but few are willing to put in the hours that Cena does. He’s constantly on the job, nearly always on the road. He’s been known to go »

WWE Releases The Great Khali

14 November 2014 12:27 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The Great Khali’s career in World Wrestling Entertainment appears to be over. On Thursday night, fans noticed that his WWE.com profile was moved to their Alumni section. There was no official “future endeavors” post on WWE.com on Thursday although it could happen on Friday. A report from F4WOnline.com noted that “there had been talk around wrestling for the last week that such a move was imminent.”

It’s a move that makes a lot of sense from both sides whether it was WWE releasing him or his contract expiring and they chose not to renew it. From WWE’s point of view, Khali probably makes a lot of money as an eight year employee that is a former World Champion, but he really doesn’t work a lot or appear on television with any regularity. They’re trying to save money, so there »

WWE Studios Producing ‘Scooby-Doo’ Sequel with Warner Bros.

13 November 2014 4:07 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

WWE’s wrestlers are set to go on another adventure with the Scooby-Doo gang.

After “Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania” sold well on homevideo platforms earlier this year, WWE Studios and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will reteam on a sequel that’s set to be released in the spring of 2016, Variety has learned.

The film will be produced by WWE Studios and Warner Bros. Animation.

Details of the project are being kept under wraps. However, Hulk Hogan will be prominently featured in the cast of characters. Hogan returned to WWE in February, and hosted “WrestleMania 30,” in New Orleans to much fanfare.

As is the case with its other film projects, WWE will promote the next “Scooby-Doo” pic on its TV shows, websites, at live events and across its social media channels.

In addition to “Scooby-Doo,” WWE is also working with Warner Bros. on an animated “Flintstones” project that also will feature its lineup of wrestlers, »

Former WWE Star Cm Punk Writing Thor Comic for Marvel

Not long ago, Phil Brooks—better known to the world as wrestling superstar and former WWE Champion Cm Punk—was one of the hottest performers in the Sports entertainment industry. His famous ‘pipe bomb’ style of promos had him nipping at John Cena’s heels as the top act in the industry. Fans chanted his name at arenas around the world. And then he walked away from it all. Unhappy with some off-screen aspects of WWE politics, and suffering some long-term injuries, Punk left the lucrative profession. Despite the fact that fans continued »

Hercules Blu-Ray Review

13 November 2014 9:18 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The single biggest flaw within director Brett Ratner’s vision of Hercules is one that came from a self-conscious decision to create a Hercules story that is grounded in reality. While that is an interesting concept, the frustration comes from the fact that the movie was marketed as a fantasy inspired adventure where the titular character completes the Twelve Labors. Instead, what we got is a movie that not only rushes through those trials and tribulations in a five minute montage opening sequence, but one that attempts to debunk every piece of mythology as the film goes on.

This means that the remaining 90 minutes or so are a painfully generic narrative about Hercules and his friends as a group of mercenaries for hire. Not exactly the kind of Hercules movie I imagine people wanted to see, especially when it stars Dwayne Johnson as the mythical demigod; a man who truly »
