Ryan Reeves would first make his mark in the WWE on the first season of Nxt (back when it was a competition show for a contract on the main roster where the superstars would be paired with a pro to mentor them). He was known then as Skip Sheffield, a happy-go-lucky cowboy that had an impressive physique with strength and agility to go with it. He would then join all of the other first season participants of Nxt to form The Nexus; however, soon after the start of The Nexus, Sheffield would break his ankle and be out of action for several months.
In April of 2012, Sheffield returned, but with a new look, a new attitude, and a new name. Ryback. For several months following Ryback’s debut, he would crush jobbers one and two at a time. Many people thought he drew a lot of comparisons to »

If you were to take a poll of WWE Universe members that still watch ‘WWE Superstars’ on a regular basis, the results would report back as minimal. Airing exclusively on WWE Network every Thursday night, ‘Superstars’ is known as home to WWE’s biggest jobbers. From Big E to Zack Ryder to Titus O’Neil, many of the Superstars you don’t see on Raw are often appearing on ‘Superstars’ each week, competing in countless matches against each other that at the end of the day mean virtually nothing. It’s still a mystery to many at this point why the show is still around since is essentially serves no purpose in that no storylines are ever furthered and notable names very rarely make appearances on the program.
However, it didn’t always used to be this way. WWE took the show quite seriously when it was initially »

It has been a trying time for WWE recently. Since the launch of the WWE Network a lot has happened. Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Title, got injured and was forced to forfeit the belt. Cena won the belt soon afterwards. The Shield split up, Roman Reigns began his ascension to the top of WWE and Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose began a feud with one another. Bray Wyatt was squashed by John Cena in a crappy feud, and then Chris Jericho returned to WWE, beating Wyatt in his return PPV match. There were a lot of things wrong with WWE television, and still are, with the product becoming stale and the feuds becoming either too long or rehashed too many times. So, we head in to SummerSlam, for the sixth consecutive year held in Los Angeles, California; and a card that isn’t exactly captivating on paper, though »

Is WWE out of ideas? Can they not think of any more potential combinations of talent to wrestle? We saw Dolph Ziggler and Randy Orton have their 16th televised one-on-one match since 2011, Goldust and Stardust face off against The Usos (in either tag or singles matches) for the 15th time since just September 1st, and witnessed Dean Ambrose beat Kane in a variety of matches now six times in a row. Just leave him alone Dean! The man has had enough!
But the cherry on top of our sundae, or more like the vomit on top of our week old stale garbage pile is WWE announcing John Cena vs. Randy Orton at Hell in a Cell. Vince McMahon is just clearly messing with us at this point. That match wouldn’t entice someone to tune into Superstars to watch it, let alone subscribe to the Network.
Well, the »

They trained together in Ovw in the early 2000s, they both debuted on the main roster on Smackdown in 2002 and they were both main event performers within three years. Orton became a World Champion first, but Cena’s the one that became the undisputed top babyface in the company. He’s been in that spot for the past decade while Orton has mostly been a heel aside from a few runs as a babyface.
It was announced this past Monday on Raw that the feud that will never end will continue for another PPV match, this time leading to a match at the October 26 Hell in a Cell PPV. Since Cena lost to Dean Ambrose on Raw, Orton gets to face. »

Last week we conducted an online poll that allowed you to vote for your favorite Total Divas couple and now we've got the official results. It was very close but Nikki Bella and John Cena won with 36.4% of the votes, making them the #1 Total Divas couple! The WWE Diva and her Superstar boyfriend have had their fair share of ups and downs with their differing views on marriage and children, but John has seemed to experience a change of heart and we can only hope that will hint at wedding bells in the future for these two lovebirds! Some of the couple's relationship highlights include moving in together, John taking Nikki back home to meet his family, and the time he surprised Nikki by buying her »
When Brock Lesnar returned to World Wrestling Entertainment after almost a decade in exile, many were concerned about how he was being booked in WWE. His first match back was a loss to John Cena which seemingly turned Brock Lesnar from a mythical monster into just another wrestler.
However, since then, WWE has done a remarkable job building Brock into the unstoppable machine that we all view him as. The former Ufc heavyweight champion of the world is now the WWE world champion and is so dominant that no one can name a contender who is even on his same level.
Of course, that just means he’s an extremely effective heel. When you have a heel champion who seems unbeatable, that’s when a babyface challenger can rise to the occasion and become a superstar by knocking off the big, evil monster…if it’s done properly. »

The WWE Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View takes place on Sunday October 26th in Dallas, Texas. There were five weeks between Night of Champions and Hell in a Cell. It seemed like WWE took their sweet time in getting their card set up. There were all kinds of rumors about what matches might take place and in what setting, but now it seems like they have everything in order.
The two main events were set up on Raw while others were confirmed on WWE.com as well. Here’s a look at the five announced matches.
Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose in a Hell in a Cell Match - Ambrose faces Rollins after he beat John Cena on Raw in a “Contract in a Pole” Match that he won because of the interference of The Authority. While Cena was giving Kane an Attitude Adjustment, Ambrose scaled the turnbuckle »

We are coming up on the 2014 edition of Hell In A Cell, and from the looks of things, it is shaping up to be a showcase for the hottest WWE superstar today, Dean Ambrose. In a previous article this month, 10 Reasons Dean Ambrose Is Better Than Roman Reigns, you will see the reason why he is getting the biggest pop from the WWE Universe. This has led Ambrose to being involved in the highest profile feud of October with John Cena and Seth Rollins. On this past Monday Night Raw, Dean Ambrose defeated Cena in the Contract On A Pole Match, and will get to face Seth Rollins inside the Hell In A Cell structure at the next pay per view.
Ever since Seth Rollins turned on The Shield back in June of this year, both Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose received a huge push. Reigns immediately shot »

Smackdown was taped this week from Birmingham, Alabama. It will air this Friday and hopefully do better ratings than the Smackdown 15th Anniversary Show – which surprisingly dropped viewers.
Seth Rollins opened proceedings with an in-ring promo. There was major heat and Seth played it brilliantly, saying that he’s the future of WWE. He commented that Dean Ambrose should be in a strait-jacket, not a Hell In A Cell. Dolph Ziggler then entered and surprised Rollins with a dropkick. We then get the opening match.
Rollins (unsurprisingly) beat Ziggler with the Curb Stomp. There was good heat for it and Ambrose came out afterwards to talk about what he’s going to do at Hell In A Cell. That brought out Kane who made a match for later, himself versus Ambrose.

As was made very clear by Big Show's awkward references to "Hot Atlanta" and Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes' ornamental inclusion, last night's Raw did indeed take place in the Peach State's proud capital city. And convenient as it would be to suggest all three hours were the pits, that would be a fuzzy recounting of events.
For those who like their action between the bells, Raw offered its most filler-free installment in recent memory, buoyed by unexpected booking swerves that kept anticipation high from opening bout to main event. »
Much to the chagrin many a fan, John Cena is nigh on invincible.
Aside from the SummerSlam trouncing from Brock Lesnar, it’s difficult to remember the last time the 15-time world champion actually lost clean, thus making him one of the most protected WWE Superstars that we’ve ever seen.
But for every hardcore fan who winces at the sight of another SuperCena rally, there’s just as many youngsters—if not more—who are clamouring for their hero to do what he does best and Never Give Up.
Those three words have become the basis for Cena’s mantra, his gimmick, and essentially his entire brand. The phrase has dominated on-screen storylines and company merchandise for years and years on end now, and given the nature of the current PG product, it’s easy to see why.
But for all the preaching that Cena sends our way, »

This week in the wacky world of wrestling, we saw Bo Dallas battle Mark Henry three times, Stephanie McMahon threaten John Cena and Dean Ambrose with a trip straight to hell for the loser (now that’s what I call a stipulation!) and The Rock briefly saving an all time disaster edition of Raw.
Oh yeah, SmackDown also celebrated its 15th anniversary, which is also approximately the 13th anniversary since the show has been watchable.
In the most homicidal, veiled threat of the week, Jerry Lawler asked what’s the difference between Bo Dallas and a pothole? The answer? He’d swerve to avoid a pothole. Uncle Jerry, how could you? Well if Bo goes missing, I say the King is the prime suspect. McMahon is already doing a pretty good job of killing his career, no need to kill him outright!
Well, everything we saw has led »

The next gimmick-themed WWE PPV is just around the corner, and fans are gearing up to see who will face Seth Rollins inside the demonic structure known as Hell in a Cell: John Cena or Dean Ambrose. If that is the only cell match on the PPV of the same name, then it will be the 29th Hiac match in WWE history, a storied past that reaches back 17 years.
Hell in a Cell is supposed to be a rarely used gimmick in WWE that is an endpoint for feuds. Consider that before WWE implemented the Hell in a Cell PPV in 2009, there had been only 16 cell matches (over 12 years). That means the remaining 12 have taken place in the last five years (although one is a dark match). Ten have taken place at the five Hiac PPVs, and the outlier is the Undertaker-Triple H “End of an Era” match at WrestleMania Xxviii. »

Nikki Bella is willing to do a lot of things, including fight against her own sister in the ring, but when it comes to stripping down, this Diva has her limits! While having dinner with boyfriend John Cena to celebrate the premiere of her recent film, Nikki is caught off-guard when he asks how she feels about getting naked for the cameras. "Would you ever show everyone your body on film? John asks. "I'm confident in my body," Nikki reveals to the camera. "But to see the girls? No way! The girls are for my man!" "What if you had to do a sex scene?" John presses. "I will only do a sex scene with you," she insists. Watch the clip above to see »
