Kevin Owens Now Chasing WWE Intercontinental Title

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

This week’s episode of SmackDown included a backstage interview segment where Kevin Owens appeared to signal that he is looking to take the Intercontinental Championship from Ryback.

Here’s what the former Nxt Champion had to say to Renee Young:

“Now that I’ve silenced the Cesaro section not once, but twice there’s another movement that I’d like to silence… And it’s this movement of people making fun of me for the way I look.

“See whether it’s other superstars, or those oh so clever commentators, or even the WWE Universe, these people need to understand that I’ve been looked down upon for the way I look for 15 years now and it’s never stopped me.

“The proof is, I’m right here, right now (pointing at SmackDown sign).

“And you know what, it’s never going to stop me because the »

WWE Debate: Does Mark Henry Deserve A WWE Hall Of Fame Induction In 2016?

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

WWE Superstar Mark Henry was on a promotional appearance tour in India where he told the Times of India that his career could be nearing its conclusion: “I may retire next year. It may be the swan-song of my wrestling career; but definitely not the end of Mark Henry!”

Talk of the World’s Strongest Man retiring has been around for some time now as his career has slowly declined after a prolonged stay in the main events ran its course. Not since his interactions with John Cena in 2013 – and that fantastic hoax retirement speech on Raw – have we seen the 400-pounder booked in a position to showcase his talents. Recently, we’ve only seen Mark in less than flattering situations, jobbing to Rusev in next-to-no-time on consecutive RAWs before heading into the abyss.

2016 represents a fairytale-like scenario for the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion to retire. Henry »

Kevin Owens Is Bret Hart’s Favourite Wrestler Today

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

Kevin Owens is WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart’s favourite wrestler in the business today.

The former WWE Champion was speaking during a Q&A with Off The Record’s Periscope account, where he was asked who his favourite heel currently working in the ring was. The Hitman replied: He’s (Kevin Owens) one of my favourites, period!

“He’s very good. He’s a Canadian guy and he’s a really hard working wrestler.”

The former Nxt Champions has made a considerable splash on the main roster since ‘stepping up’ to make his unannounced debut as part of the John Cena Us Open Challenge in May.

He’s been involved in the upper echelons of the card since and even gained a clean win against Cena on his in-ring debut at Elimination Chamber.

Although, not everyone in the power positions in WWE seems sold »

WWE Business Numbers Show Popularity Of John Cena Vs Kevin Owens

3 September 2015 1:59 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE business numbers have illustrated the popularity of John Cena and Kevin Owens main eventing shows. The house show numbers for July were the strongest performing for any match over a full month in a long time. The Owens Cena main event matches drew an average of 6,583 paid, which is up from the 6,000 Cena was drawing against Bray Wyatt in the same spot in 2014.

What this shows, is that Kevin Owens can draw. Granted Cena is a huge part of the attraction, but the addition of Owens has resulted in more numbers. When Wyatt was in the spot, it was a lot less. “Other guys in the same position with Cena haven’t done as well,” Dave Meltzer writes in the wrestling observer newsletter.

Owens was put in the position and got over, helped by an initial strong push in which he defeated Cena.

However, following the feud, »

John Laurinaitis Gets Engaged To Bella Twins’ Mother

3 September 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

John Laurinaitis is engaged to Kathy Colace, the mother of Nikki and Brie Bella.

The future Mrs Laurinaitis, an entrepreneur from Arizona, announced the pair’s engagement via a couple of posts on her Instagram page. The first shows the current power couple of WWE, Nikki Bella and John Cena, out for dinner with the new ‘people power’ couple of Laurinaitis and Colace accompanied by the caption: “Special night. Birthday dinner and my engagement. #peoplepower #BellaArmy.”

The second shows a glass with “Future Mrs Laurinaitis” emblazoned on it.

Special night. Birthday dinner and my engagement. #peoplepower #BellaArmy

Kathy is often shown with her daughters on Total Divas and has been pictured at numerous WWE events down the years. This presumably explains where the will-be-weds met as Laurinaitis reportedly still works behind the scenes for WWE as a road agent. »

Bray Wyatt Working WWE Events With Injured Shoulder

2 September 2015 9:37 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ric Flair took to his Wooooo! Nation podcast to announce that Bray Wyatt has been dealing with a shoulder injury for some time.

Wyatt did not wrestle on Monday’s Raw and has been restricted to multiple person matches since August 3. He did face-off against Roman Reigns in a street fight during this week’s SmackDown tapings, although those matches allow those involved to do more brawling at ringside and minimise their bumps.

The injury goes some way to explaining the timing of Braun Strowman’s introduction. The newest Wyatt Family member debuted with great aplomb during last week’s Raw, dismantling both Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose before facing off against the Lunatic Fringe on this week’s episode.

The former strongman will be doing the majority of Wyatt’s legwork in the coming weeks it seems.

Sixteen-time world champion Flair still has ties within »

Brock Lesnar Vs. Big Show At WWE Msg Live Event – October 3rd

2 September 2015 1:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It was announced on Madison Square Garden’s website that Brock Lesnar will face the Big Show at the WWE live event at Msg in New York City on Saturday, October 3. The event will be broadcast on WWE Network or at least a portion of it will be. The last WWE Network live event special was in Tokyo and two hours of that show were part of the broadcast.

There was a rumour out last month that Lesnar would be facing Bo Dallas at the Msg show, but it was never made official. Most of the advertising is being built around Lesnar making his Msg return after over a decade.

The last time Lesnar faced Big Show was at the 2014 Royal Rumble when Lesnar destroyed Show in a short match that was made to look Lesnar look as dominant as ever. They are familiar rivals with a long »

What Happened After WWE Raw Went Off The Air? (Aug 31)

1 September 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Following this week’s edition of Monday night Raw in Tampa, John Cena made his way down to the ring to team up with his most famous rival Randy Orton in a battle against WWE & Us Champion Seth Rollins as well as the Money in the Bank holder Sheamus.

As you might expect, Cena and Orton won the match to send the fans home happy. They each hit their finishing moves on Sheamus and ended the night celebrating together. The match apparently went about ten minutes.

Orton and Sheamus were both absent from Raw. It’s not known if they will be having another singles match at Night of Champions. Orton won their singles match at Battleground in July, then Sheamus won at SummerSlam in August, so WWE might do a third match to see who wins the feud. Fans don’t seem to be receptive to seeing it again. »

‘WWE: Money in the Bank 2015′ DVD Review

1 September 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Money in the Bank has a history of being fun, especially the match itself which often tends to be chaotic. With WWE going through somewhat of a change for WWE: Money in the Bank 2015, it felt more refreshing and interesting. Especially with John Cena vs. Kevin Owens being one of the big fights of the night…

The Money in the Bank match itself featured Sheamus, Nevil, Roman Reigns, Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, Kane and Dolph Ziggler. While it may not have been one of the most spectacular Money in the Bank fights, it was pretty solid and a good early match to build up the crowd. I’m not sure the ending was what we wanted, but it did a good job of starting a few new story lines.

35 Wtf Moments From WWE Raw (August 31)

1 September 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

How on Earth could WWE follow up the extravaganza they put on last Monday night?

The reaction to SummerSlam the night before was a mixed bag. The majority of WWE fans were left miffed by the complicated endings to the Seth Rollins vs John Cena and Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker matches. The PPV really did do a lot to lessen the mood following a brilliant Nxt Takeover show on the ‘opening night’ of the SummerSlam weekender.

Thankfully, with that blessed tactic of shock TV making an impactful return, WWE put on a Raw that would stand up against almost any episode in the show’s 23-year history. The Dudley Boyz and Sting made fantastic returns while The New Day went from strength-to-strength. Yes. The New Day are one of the most entertaining entities on the card these days… Who saw that coming at the start of their run? »

WWE Night Of Champions – Us Title And Divas Title Matches Added

1 September 2015 7:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Two new matches were officially announced for WWE Night of Champions on Raw this week: Seth Rollins defending the United States Title against former champion John Cena and Nikki Bella defending the Divas Title against Charlotte.

The only other match announced for the show currently is Seth Rollins defending the WWE Title against Sting, which was set up last week.

The Rollins/Cena rematch was set up when Cena went to the ring during Rollins’ main event promo segment and said that there was nothing that The Authority’s Stephanie McMahon could do to stop him from using his rematch clause. Stephanie set up the match while Rollins was furious because now he has to defend two titles in one night.

Their match at SummerSlam was the match of the night and should be very good again. It’s definitely possible that Cena could win the title back. »

WWE Raw Preview – Sting Speaks Plus Beat The Clock

31 August 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Tonight’s edition of Raw takes place in Tampa, Florida and with no more threat of a tropical storm in the area, the focus will be on Sting as he goes for his first ever WWE Title against the Champion Seth Rollins.

WWE has already announced that Sting will open this week’s Raw. It will be the first time Sting delivers a promo on Raw since before WrestleMania, so it will be very interesting to hear what “The Vigilante” might say.

The first ever Rollins vs. Sting match is set for September 20 at WWE Night of Champions.

Also announced for Raw is a Divas “Beat The Clock” challenge where Team Pcb members Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch will compete to win matches in the fastest time. The diva that wins her match the fastest gets a Divas Title shot at Nikki Bella at Night of Champions. There »

WWE Night Of Champions: 10 Hidden Gem Matches You Must See

31 August 2015 7:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE’s Night Of Champions 2015 will be headlined by quite the colossal title bout. In the main event, Sting will challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. This will be the Stinger’s first Pay-Per-View appearance since WrestleMania, and his first crack at the WWE Title. It’s a huge match, but it’s not the first big main event the PPV series has seen.

Over the years, WWE have pulled out some big matches for Night Of Champions. The event is considered part of the Vengeance lineage, even though it only became a true standalone event in 2008. Nonetheless, the show entitled, ‘Vengeance: Night Of Champions’ from 2007 will be considered for the entries on this list.

Matches such as Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena (2014), Cm Punk vs. Jeff Hardy (2009) and Triple H vs. John Cena (2008) have all been huge bouts in the main event slot. »

Roman Reigns Was Almost WWE 2K16 Cover Star

27 August 2015 7:36 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

2K Games

Roman Reigns was almost on the cover of WWE 2K16, the wrestling observer newsletter reports.

There was a push for him to be the featured star, but the ultimate feeling ended up being that Stone Cold Steve Austin would be a much better cover for promoting such a major project.

It was actually Vince McMahon who personally called Austin and asked him to be on the cover of the game.

Reigns being considered for something, only to lose out on it, is the story of his year. Being the cover star would have meant a lot for him, both financially and in terms of perception. The same was true of WrestleMania 31, where he was originally considered for a WWE Title win over Brock Lesnar. Just like the video game cover, he lost out on that major opportunity. Fans weren’t feeling his character and it was decided to »

Brock Lesnar Vs Bo Dallas – WWE Network Msg Special

26 August 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The likely opponent for Brock Lesnar at the October 3 WWE live event at Madison Square Garden in New York City is Bo Dallas.

It hasn’t been confirmed by WWE yet, but it’s likely to be made official soon and it’s why Dallas got involved with Lesnar on Raw this past Monday, reports F4WOnline. The event will be shown on WWE Network.

During the segment on Raw, Lesnar was in the ring looking all angry while Paul Heyman called out The Undertaker. Instead, Dallas showed up, told Lesnar to “Bolieve” and received five German Suplexes as well as a F5 just because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The match at Msg has been pushed as Lesnar’s first appearance at the “World’s Most Famous Arena” in over ten years. The match will likely be similar to when »

10 Reasons Why Sting vs. Seth Rollins Is Bad For Business

26 August 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The main event of September 20, 2015 Night of Champions PPV features legendary WCW performer Sting versus Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship. It’s the first time we’ve seen Sting since his WrestleMania appearance where he defeated Triple H with the aid of yes, the New World Order. However, given that Seth Rollins is in the midst of elevating his performance standard to another level, the idea of wrestling a 56-year old man really doesn’t need to be in the cards.

Sting versus Seth Rollins is bad for business for roughly ten reasons that will be outlined in this article. Rollins just defeated John Cena in a classic match that involved a screwjob finish with non-wrestler John Stewart. Following that up with a nearly 60-year old wrestler really doesn’t inspire great confidence in a champion as much as it points to a possible concern regarding WWE »

WWE Night Of Champions 2015: 8 Matches That Must Happen

26 August 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


SummerSlam 2015 is in the bag, and now WWE look forward to the next Pay-Per-View offering. On September 20th, the company will present Night Of Champions, an annual show during which the promotion trumpets that every title will be on the line. Historically, the event has produced some sterling matches, such as last year’s main event, Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena.

This year, it seems unlikely that Lesnar will wrestle. At SummerSlam, the seeds were sown for yet another rematch between Brock and The Undertaker. The chances of that bout being given away at Night Of Champions are nil, WWE are far more likely to present the match at WrestleMania 32 next Spring.

Regardless of such a marquee offering being omitted, Night Of Champions should have a lot to offer fans tuning in. This article is all about potential matches on the Pay-Per-View, and exactly why WWE should endeavour to make them happen. »

Full Card For WWE Network Madison Square Garden Special

26 August 2015 2:56 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Madison Square Garden’s website has revealed the card for the October 3rd WWE Network Special in New York City. The card is currently titled ‘WWE Live From Madison Square Garden Featuring Brock Lesnar’ and the main event is listed as Seth Rollins versus John Cena.

Interestingly, Cena is listed as Us champion and Rollins is listed as WWE Champion. Only the WWE Title is listed as being on the line. Could it be an indication of the title picture around October? Probably not. The disclaimer “card is subject to change” is highlighted at the bottom of the card. These matches were drawn up before SummerSlam and reflect the WWE status in mid-August.

Brock Lesnar and Chris Jericho are both listed on the card, but with the asterisk that no opponent is yet announced. Could they be facing each other? That would certainly be a lot of fun, »
