Title: Trainwreck Director: Judd Apatow Starring: Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Tilda Swinton, Vanessa Bayer, John Cena and Colin Quinn Sometimes the best way to stay true to your morals and personality, while also striving to reach your full potential, is to fully embrace the idea of reinventing your signature qualities that have long since become stereotypical and clichéd. That powerful attempt to revive your emotions and thoughts, and how they’re presented to the world, is the all-important theme in the upcoming comedy, ‘Trainwreck.’ The film, which is set to be released in theaters on July 17, marks the captivating recreation of director Judd Apatow, who once again fearlessly [ Read More ]

Sting versus The Undertaker will not be happening at WrestleMania 32, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Vince McMahon is negative towards the idea, although he is factoring in Sting to wrestle somewhere on next year’s card.
It is a bit of a mystery as to why he wouldn’t want to do the iconic Sting vs Taker match, particularly as fans have been so vocal about their desire to see it. Given that McMahon is desperate to fill the 100,000 capacity at Cowboys Stadium, a Sting / Undertaker match could have been a significant draw.
The Wrestling Observer also reports that Sting could have a good chance of going in the Hall Of Fame next year. In regards to the other WrestleMania 32 main events, McMahon is believed to have decided what his top six matches are. The Rock and Ronda Rousey versus Triple H and Stephanie McMahon is still what WWE are hoping to do, »

John Cena's penis is Mia. The wrestling champ sports quite the impressive erection in the new Amy Schumer comedy, Trainwreck (in theaters July 17). No, it wasn't the real thing, but the end of a broomstick covered by a towel. "I have it in a glass case," Schumer jokes. "It loos like a Heisman Trophy…and every morning, I get up and say a little prayer to it and I bow." Did no one take home Cena's fake, um, wood? "I think it's probably with our prop guy," Schumer said. "I walked by and he was kind of whittling something and he was like, 'I'm making John Cena's erection.' I was like, 'Carry on, »
We've been keeping you updated about the possibility of Arrow star showing up to wrestle Stardust at this year's WWE SummerSlam for a while now, and while the build up to that match seemed to be ticking along quite nicely, it sounds like the idea has now been scrapped by the company. According to Wrestling Observer Radio's Dave Meltzer, a bout between the two was being planned, but has now been called off. A reason wasn't given, but you have to imagine that it has something to do with the recent death of Stardust's (a.k.a. Cody Rhodes) father, Dusty Rhodes. However, this isn't the first time that the WWE has contemplated a celebrity guest appearance at SummerSlam and thought better of it. It's been rumoured that they last year discussed having Justin Bieber team-up with John Cena and The Big Show against The Wyatt Family before thinking better of it. »
Amy Schumer said she seriously considered signing on to be the next Bachelorette in the ABC series after the enthusiastic response from her appearance on the current season. “I really was very tempted,” she noted when people suggested she take over; ABC exec Robert Mills even made overtures to her on Twitter. “But I think the franchise would be over.” Referencing the show’s current storyline, she added, “People got so mad that Kaitlyn f—ked one guy, can you imagine me (on the show)?”
Schumer was speaking to a packed audience of SAG members following a screening of her new film “Trainwreck” last Friday. She was joined by co-stars Colin Quinn, Vanessa Bayer and professional wrestler John Cena. The film stars Schumer as a hard-partying journalist reluctant to commit to a relationship until she meets a surgeon played by Bill Hader.
According to Schumer, it was director Judd Apatow »

However, backstage WWE officials may not be too pleased with how the match unfolded.
During the contest, Cesaro had to be briefly censored during the USA Network broadcast where it looked like he was flashing his middle fingers at Cena.
Upon closer inspection, it was actually his two ring fingers that he was showing because Cesaro tapes his two ring fingers and they are the ones that are clearly visible. It is likely a reference to the “brass ring” line that Vince McMahon said on WWE Network to Steve Austin.
Due to that line, his team with Tyson Kidd was referred to briefly as the “Brass Ring Club” although that name never became official for them.

Monogamy is not realistic. It’s an all-too-pessimistic outlook that has been drilled into Amy Schumer’s leading lady for as long as she can remember, and one that will underpin Judd Apatow’s upcoming rom-com, Trainwreck.
As a career-driven woman living in The Big Apple, Schumer’s Amy remains disinterested – if aloof – to any romantic commitment for fear it would tie her down and ruin her happiness. However, after agreeing to spearhead a feature on a delightfully charming sports doctor (Bill Hader), our protagonist soon finds that her once-ironclad perspective isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, even if she refuses to admit it at first.
Though it won’t win any awards for breaking new ground in the genre, the fact that Apatow has assembled a stellar cast around the leading pair, including the likes of Brie Larson, John Cena, Tilda Swinton, »

As much of the roster rallied for WWE's big trip to Singapore and Japan, there was ample room on last night's card for matches to run well past the five-minute mark. Hell, even Paige and Alicia Fox had an opportunity to showcase more than a pair of moves each before the former beat the Bellas' new Bff and scurried to safety.
The show opens with a smirking Rollins coming out, fresh on the back of a beat down last week to Brock Lesnar. Instantly Rollins starts generating extra heat with a few crowd put downs. “I took a trip to suplex City and I burnt it!” being a particular high note of an Authority reunited and a happy family. Then it degenerated into an Apple Watch/Cadillac advert, dragging on too long, being too self-indulgent and just a boring segment. If things couldn’t get worse, The Big Show came out to fight Mark Henry in a match we’d all hate.

Trainwreck debuted as a work-in-progress at SXSW back in March, but hopefully Judd Apatow hasn't changed much since because the cut screened there was fantastic. Amy Schumer wrote the script and also stars as Amy, a young professional living in New York City who firmly believes that monogamy isn’t realistic. However, that changes when she starts to fall for the subject that she's writing a magazine article about - the super sweet and successful sports doctor Aaron Conners (Bill Hader). With the film's July 17th nationwide release fast approaching, Universal just unveiled a whole batch of hi-res Trainwreck pictures featuring Schumer and Hader as well as co-stars Brie Larson, John Cena, Tilda Swinton, LeBron James and Vanessa Bayer. You can see them all for yourself below and, in case you missed it, click here to check out my Trainwreck review from SXSW.

Chris Jericho returned to the squared circle as World Wrestling Entertainment rolled into Reading, Pennsylvania for another stop on its SummerSlam Heatwave Tour Sunday night. He would be only one of two former Heavyweight Champions on the show, the other being Dolph Ziggler, as star power was at a premium but effort certainly was not. Yours truly was at the show.
While the company’s most recognizable headliners were in Virginia, giving the WWE Universe a preview of the upcoming Battleground pay-per-view extravaganza, the Reading show was home to some of the numerous members of the company’s mid- and under card who typically are not allowed the opportunity to perform on Raw or SmackDown on a consistent basis. With the chance to perform for a hot crowd desperate for a fun and exciting night of WWE action, they worked doubly hard to ensure that their in-ring performances »

Normally, I'm not one to brag, but I would like to say right off the bat, I think I did pretty well with my must-see list last month. Of my five official picks -- Spy, Jurassic World, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Dope and Inside Out -- the closest I got to suggesting you see a movie people generally didn't like was Jurassic World, which has broken all sorts of box office records and sits at a "fresh" 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not that box office results or Rotten Tomatoes are the ultimate barometers of quality, but I have to base this off something, rightc Personally I didn't much care for the new Jurassic film aside from a few scenes of enormous spectacle, but others found plenty to like in it. I also ended up seeing Dope twice -- that one might be my favorite movie so far this »

What can you say about WWE in 2009?
The company had a fairly forgettable year, truth be told. Things seemed to be on autopilot, in many respects, with the company returning to tried-and-tested (read: worn out) feuds such as Randy Orton versus Triple H, John Cena versus Randy Orton and reforming tired acts like Dx.
To their credit, however, they did try a few different things with great results. Cm Punk’s transformation into the arrogant straight edge heel and programme with the red-hot Jeff Hardy was a thing of beauty. Rey Mysterio and Chris Jericho had a tremendous first-time-in-WWE feud which yielded awesome matches and segments and WWE seemed serious about pushing the promising Ted Dibiase Jr. and Cody Rhodes (for a couple of months, anyway).

2015 has been a year of ups and downs for WWE. It has enjoyed a few successes, including a critically-acclaimed WrestleMania, surpassing 1,000,000 subscribers mark on the WWE Network, and a series of outstanding matches between Kevin Owens and John Cena.
On the other hand, WWE has also experienced some problems, including the failure that was the ending of the 2015 Royal Rumble match, an overreliance on ‘free months’ for the Network, and an apathetic audience stemming from an overemphasis on the Authority.
But there’s one thing that trumps these negatives more than anything else: injuries.
Between WrestleMania 31 and mid-June, an astonishing eight wrestlers have been put on the shelf with injuries, ranging from a broken foot to a serious spinal injury. Some of these wrestlers were mid-carders who appeared on WWE programming without significant creative directions. Others were up-and-coming stars who needed as much momentum as possible in order »

The Rock made a surprise appearance during Saturday night’s WWE live event in Boston. Bo Dallas was in the ring doing a promo to rile up the fans when The Rock’s music hit and the former WWE Champion received a massive ovation from the crowd.
Rock ended up giving Dallas a Rock Bottom and People’s Elbow much to the delight of the vocal fans in Boston.
You never know what will happen at WWE Live! @therock just electrified #WWEBoston!

The reason The Rock was in town is because he’s been in Boston for the past month filming the movie Central Intelligence with Kevin Hart that will be released in June 2016. It was likely a one time thing that was done just because he was in the area. This is similar to when »

Both John Cena and Randy Orton debuted on WWE’s active roster in 2002. In both now-veteran performers during WWE’s transition from “pro wrestling company” to “sports entertainment corporation,” both performers have suffered from being over-exposed during this quite bizarre era.
However, in Randy Orton having more roles up and down the roster it’s Orton — moreso than Cena — who has become more of a liability and in many ways is a fine case study for understanding everything wrong with WWE at-present.
Yes, for as many things that seem amazing in Stamford, there’s a problem when solid professionals like Orton now run the risk of having done so much for so long at such a high level that his value as a performer actually depreciates with each televised appearance.
Yes, Orton’s a once-in-a-lifetime talent, but similar to if you were to see unicorns as an everyday occurrence, »

The current WWE roster is full of performers that are sitting on the sidelines waiting for some kind of fresh and interesting story. Often times they are just paired off in random feuds that have no meaning, yet they expect the fans to care. It may happen from time to time if the match is great, but lately a lot of WWE storylines just seem to fall flat.
What WWE needs more than anything right now are some fresh rivalries to generate some fan interest. It’s great to see Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar because that’s a singles match that hasn’t happened before, but matches like John Cena vs. Kevin Owens, New Day vs. Prime Time Players, Bray Wyatt vs. Reigns, Sheamus vs. Randy Orton and others feel like repeats of matches we’ve seen countless times before.
There needs to be more variety in »

Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s head by her rascal of a dad that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo – enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment – but in actuality, she’s kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners, Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something.
Set for release July 17th in the States and August 28th in the UK, Trainwreck features a cast that also »

Three seasons of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer have shown us that Amy Schumer is no one-hit-wonder. With her hilarious sketches and irrepressibly edgy style of humor, she’s cemented her grip on the small screen – and now, this summer, she’ll bring her shtick to theaters with the hilarious-looking Trainwreck.
A new trailer for the Judd Apatow-directed comedy has hit the web today and it’s as gut-bustingly funny as you’d expect. Schumer is a rare comedian in that she’s demonstrably fearless in her tackling of modern romance, sexuality, body image, societal double standards and systematically imposed misogyny. Unafraid to take on big targets (and simultaneously skewer herself), she has proven herself to be one of the most unrepentantly honest voices in comedy today. From the looks of Trainwreck, for which Schumer also wrote the script, it doesn’t appear that a shred of that »
