WWE Superstar John Cena Gets Body-Slammed by Nickelodeon Slime (Exclusive Video)

17 February 2017 1:00 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

WWE Superstar John Cena has taken a lot of hard punches and body-slams during his wrestling career, so it’s no surprise that he handled getting slimed like man. The host of the 2017 Nickelodeon’s “Kids’ Choice Awards” shared a exclusive video with TheWrap on Friday warming up to take the stage in front of thousands of young fans on March 11. In the sticky teaser, Cena did a unique take on his WWE anthem “My Time is Now,” turning it into “My Slime is Now.” Also Read: WWE Superstar John Cena Set to Host Nickelodeon's 2017 'Kids' Choice Awards' “Get ready to scream, »

John Cena behind Bray Wyatt push, Tna legal dispute with Lucha Underground…

17 February 2017 10:28 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In one of the weirder wrestling stories of the year so far – and that’s saying something, as the below ‘I’ve Been Stone Cold Stunnered Support Group’ picture shows – Rock ‘The Dwayne’ Johnson and WWE Studios are making a movie based on the life of current WWE wrestler Paige.

The reason that’s so weird is because seemingly every other week has another story about strained relations between her and her employer.

The film is called Fighting With My Family, and is based on the Channel 4 documentary of the Norfolk-based Knight family, of which Paige is the daughter that found fame. It’s already got a director in The Rock’s Tooth Fairy co-star Stephen Merchant, and has cast Dwayne, Cersei Lannister, Nick Frost and Vince Vaughn. Florence Pugh will be starring as Paige.

Pro Wrestling Sheet are now reporting that a “big moment from Paige’s career »

WWE planning Kurt Angle in-ring return, another ex-wwe star for Wrestlemania?

17 February 2017 10:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kurt was announced as the first inductee into this year’s WWE Hall of Fame class on the 16th January episode of Raw. He’s been rather transparent in interviews about what he wants to do now he’s back, like this one to Busted Open Radio last week:

“Triple H and I did not have a discussion about wrestling after Wrestlemania yet. Do I think it will happen? Yes. Do I know for sure? No.”

According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE are thinking along the same lines, with Dave Meltzer reporting:

“I don’t know when or how extensively at this point, but the plan right now is that Angle will be doing at least some wrestling in WWE. He would have to pass a physical, and obviously at best it would be very limited.”

The problem there is that Kurt probably thinks a ‘limited’ match involves »

WWE Smackdown Live!! Reaction 2/14/2017

15 February 2017 7:11 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Another Valentine’s Day is over for another year and what better way to celebrate the holiday than by talking about professional wrestling. WWE SmackDown Live! is over for another week. Coming out of the Elimination Chamber Pay Per View, how did the Blue Brand of the WWE stack up this week?

I enjoyed the match between Becky Lynch and Mickie James. This was the match these two should have had on the Elimination Chamber Pay-Per-View. The match these two had just two days later had more impact because one, the action in the ring was solid from bell to bell and two, the right person ended up winning the match. In order for people to take Mickie James seriously for her return, she has to get some wins over credible opponents. This match against Becky Lynch was great to showcase Mickie being a ruthless villain. If they are going »

ITV America Ups David George to President, Retires Leftfield Entertainment Moniker

15 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Veteran TV producer David George has been promoted to president of ITV America, Variety has learned.

George had previously been CEO of Leftfield Entertainment since ITV acquired the Leftfield group, which includes Leftfield Pictures, Sirens Media, Loud TV, and Outpost Entertainment. He will continue to report to ITV America CEO Brent Montgomery. In his new role, George will have oversight of creative development and production across the company’s production labels, pods and producer deals.

“To say that David George has been a key player in the evolution and growth of Leftfield — and now ITV America — is an understatement,” said Montgomery. “He has helped move the company to its next iteration of content across nearly every genre, working especially creatively on innovative projects and deals with Amazon and Netflix, including our recently announced reimagining of the iconic ‘Queer Eye’ to be produced by ITV Entertainment and our partners at Scout.

John Cena’s Wrestlemania 33 match set up at Elimination Chamber? WWE star returns…

13 February 2017 10:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Smackdown-branded Elimination Chamber pay-per-view had two huge title changes. Naomi, after nearly eight years in the company, finally added another WWE accomplishment to her Best Dance Moves of the Year 2013 Slammy Award: the WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship. And in the Elimination Chamber main event – which had a revamped design with a much more forgiving floor – Bray Wyatt became the new WWE Champion.

I’ve been talking about Bray winning the championship to set up his Wrestlemania 33 title match against Randy Orton since last month – as reported by the Wrestling Observer. But I found myself so drawn into the Chamber match, especially during the final three, there were moments where I started to mentally draft up excuses for being wrong.

But Smackdown did the right thing in the end. Wyatt looked incredibly strong in victory, pinning both Aj and Cena. Orton appeared at the top of the ramp – From Outta Now-well, »

Blue Ivy Carter Crashes James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Moment at Grammy Awards

12 February 2017 7:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

James Corden followed Beyonce’s visually stunning performance at the Grammy Awards with a “Carpool Karaoke” bit on the floor of Staples Center that gathered a small crowd of music stars — but it was little Blue Ivy Carter who stole the scene.

Corden stepped into a giant cardboard cutout of a compact car as he gathered Jennifer Lopez, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, John Legend, Ryan Tedder, Jason Derulo and Neil Diamond in the aisle for a rousing chorus of Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.” The bit was clearly planned, but about halfway through young Blue Ivy Carter ran up to join the group in a moment that seemed genuinely impromptu.

Carter was sitting in the front rows of the arena and had just finished watching her expectant mother’s show-stopping performance of two selections from “Lemonade,” complete with an elaborate hologram introduction.

WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 Predictions

9 February 2017 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe with his predictions for WWE Elimination Chamber 2017…

We are now well on the road to WrestleMania, and with the ink still drying on the Royal Rumble fallout WWE are wasting no time pulling up to their next stop.

The Elimination Chamber rolls around this Sunday and the event will be a huge indication of the Smackdown Live side of things on the big show. The main event will see John Cena defend his WWE title inside the eponymous steel structure, but will he come out with the gold? Or will someone else take it and head into WrestleMania as champion?

Here are my full predictions for the event…

Randy Orton vs Luke Harper

This was the most recent match added to the event and it has all the potential to be one of the best matches on the card. Luke Harper is one of the most under rated »

Undertaker pitched for Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania backstage? Tna changes behind-the-scenes…

8 February 2017 12:12 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Undertaker vs John Cena was the heavily rumoured match-up until a few weeks ago, where according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Vince McMahon had actually “been wanting to make [Taker vs Reigns] for some time…” and that “…with Undertaker’s condition the way it is, this could have been the last chance to do it. There is the idea of a generational passing of the torch.”

Now a new report has come out from Wrestling News World – who aren’t as reliable as the Wrestling Observer, but have had scoops in the past – saying that it was actually Undertaker who pitched to face Reigns, whom he wants to lose to at Wrestlemania.

In recent years, Taker has apparently said after his Wrestlemania matches that he’s wrestled his last. But by the time WWE’s biggest show of the year rolls around again the following year, he’s ready to go once more. »

Dolph Lundgren and ex-wwe star Shad Gaspard to fight aliens in sci-fi horror Welcome to Willits

7 February 2017 11:57 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We don’t just cover movies on Flickering Myth. We also write extensively about professional wrestling. That particular Venn diagram has been crossing over more frequently in the last decade, with John Cena falling in with Judd Apatow’s comedy gang, Dave Bautista playing Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, and, of course, Rock ‘The Dwayne’ Johnson frequently topping the highest grossing actors in the world lists.

Fresh off his real life role of breaking up an armed robbery at a Florida gas station, former WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard – who formed the tag team Cryme Tyme with partner Jtg – is starring, quite aptly, as Dolph Lundgren’s police captain in the “psychological sci-fi horror” Welcome to Willits. Watch the trailer below…

Former WWE pro wrestler, and recent real life hero, Shad Gaspard, will be starring in Welcome To Willits alongside Bill Sage (American Psycho) and Dolph Lundgren (Rocky, Expendables). Directed by Trevor Ryan, »

Kurt Angle wants to wrestle in WWE, huge WWE stars returning soon…

7 February 2017 1:41 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stop the press.

Shut the fridge.

Hold the door.

Hodor.

The big WWE return we’ve all been waiting for has finally been announced after 127 days of agonising anticipation. Emmalina will be appearing on next week’s episode of Raw!

Emma’s redebut was announced on last night’s show, but as we’ve learnt before, WWE announcing something’s going to happen doesn’t necessarily mean said announced thing will. Emmalina was last announced to redebut on the 12th December episode, and was even being hyped on that night’s pre-show, but Raw ran out of time and she was bumped yet again. Dave Meltzer has described the continued delays as a “running joke” backstage.

Which probably means after months and months of Emmalina being teased as the physical manifestation of me procrastinating on Instagram, she’ll come out with the Funkasaurus gimmick. She’ll take the hit, so »

James Franco’s ‘The Disaster Artist” has been set for a world premiere the upcoming South by Southwest film Festival.

SXSW made the announcement Tuesday.

The program is also attempting to set up a screening of the original “The Room,” which first screened in 2003.

The festival, which is heading into its 24th year, will open March 10 in Austin with the previously announced Terrence Malick movie “Song to Song” with Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, and Natalie Portman.
