In this episode of the WrestleTalk News, rumours of Kurt Angle and Mvp for a return to WWE, with two ex-WWE stars already confirmed for Smackdown Live. And is Roman Reigns finished as a top star?!

Roman Reigns Done As Top Guy!

Our top story today is the load of ex-WWE stars returning to the company for the Brand Split, but first, he’s not a good guy. He’s not a bad guy. And, for the foreseeable future at least, he’s not a top guy.

Vince McMahon has been pushing Roman Reigns as WWE’s next John Cena – the new face of the company – for over two years, but Plan A has now been seemingly abandoned. Even before Reigns’ Wellness Policy violation last month, a huge portion of the fanbase rejected him, »

Two big WWE returns! Dean Ambrose’s Summerslam opponent decided! And someone forgot to bring the hard cam from Raw… That’s right, we’re reviewing Smackdown Live this week…

Shane O’Bry

The first brand split episode of Smackdown Live opened with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan talking about why Smackdown is so great. It’s the land of opportunity, not where the same people dominate the main event scene all the time *cough* Raw *cough*

Oh yeah, Finn Balor.

Shane revealed the first Smackdown-only Pay Per View will be Backlash, then he welcomed WWE Champion – that’s the title solely limited to the planet Earth – Dean Ambrose down to the ring. They’re going to find him a #1 contender for Summerslam.

Following a seven-month internal investigation, the league found “no credible evidence that Peyton Manning was provided with or used Hgh or other substances prohibited by the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances,” it said Monday. “The Mannings were fully cooperative with the investigation and provided both interviews and access to all records sought by the investigators,” the NFL added.

Being a child star in one of the biggest film franchises of all time can't be an easy feat. However, Daniel Radcliffe, who most may know as Harry Potter, has made bold and beautiful decisions after playing the famous wizard for a decade.

Today, Daniel turns twenty-seven, and we want to celebrate the last five years in which he's put away his wand, and instead has dazzled us in new and exciting ways that we honestly never could have anticipated. A young actor who keeps surprising us with his role choice -  as in his latest film, Swiss Army Man, where he literally plays a  corpse - Radcliffe has cast his own magical spell on us, and we've been entranced ever since we »

5 Worst WWE Draft 2016 Moments

20 July 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The following is a guest post from WrestleTalk. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for new videos every day.

After months of anticipation, the WWE Brand Split has finally arrived with the first Smackdown Live broadcast and the eagerly awaited WWE Draft! Which was…kind of disappointing. Here’s 5 reasons why…

5. Free Hugs?

In Raw’s last fifth round draft pick – their 15th overall – Stephanie McMahon built up her next pick with talent acquisition with: “there’s no woman quite like her from Nxt…”

The crowd began to cheer…

She’s talking about everyone’s favourite Nxt lady wrestler Bayley!

And then Stephanie said “…Nia Jax.”

Oh yeah, nobody’s favourite Nxt lady wrestler.

Bayley could still turn up as Sasha Banks’ mystery tag team partner at Battleground, but working the crowd like that was cruel.

4. No Backstage Skits

Because of Draft Center Live running simultaneously with Smackdown on the WWE Network, »

Who Was Revealed As Raw’s Gm? New Division Announced For Monday Nights! | WWE Raw 07/18/16 Review

19 July 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The following is a guest post from WrestleTalk. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for new videos every day.

 

The 07/18/16 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw reviewed in about 4 minutes – including Raw and Smackdown’s new General Managers revealed, an old division being brought back to WWE, a huge WWE championship match and more…

Brand Split-amania!

The old ‘New Era’ ended with its most common trait – an opening promo segment with some McMahons.

They bantered about the draft, and Stephanie claimed to have better Lady Balls than Shane’s…man balls. Lady Balls was one of the rumoured names for Stephanie’s upcoming autobiography, so it looks like they’re turning that into a catchphrase. It’s a shame, as I much prefer “Filthy, Dirty, Disgusting, Skanky, Brutal, Bottom-feeding, Trash-bag ho”. Drink it in.

Chris Jericho – Not A Stupid Idiot

Our top story today is Brock Lesnar’s potential doping violation, and what that could mean for WWE, but first – Chris Jericho isn’t a stupid idiot.

Wrestler merchandise can be one of the top money-makers for wrestling promotions and their performers, but sometimes a commitment to one’s own character is stronger than making all the John Cena money in the world.

Samberg, Miller and Szymanski have been given the green light for Tour De Pharmacy, a comedy series based around blood doping in the world of competitive cycling. 

TV Line broke the news, as well as confirming some casting information. Daveed Diggs - who shot to stardom recently in the mega-popular Broadway musical Hamilton - has nabbed a starring role alongside Mr Samberg.

The WWE Brand Split: Who Will Be the Top Star of Each Brand?

15 July 2016 9:34 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

With the WWE once again trying to pull off a successful brand split, separating the entire WWE roster between Raw and Smackdown, the question becomes who will be on which show. More specifically, who will be the top man for each brand? It may not be who you think.

 

Like him or not, John Cena has been the biggest name in World Wrestling Entertainment for a decade. He’s a 15-time champion and will probably end up breaking Ric Flair’s record of 16 championships. However, over the last two years, WWE CEO and God, Mr. Vincent Kennedy McMahon has been determined to push his pet project Roman Reigns to the moon, making him the new face of the company. Reigns has become a three-time champion in less than a year. Rumor had it (until recently, anyway) that he was set to win a fourth belt at Battleground.
