WWE: 5 Ways To Eliminate John Cena’s “50/50″ Crowd Response

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

Jonathan Bachman/AP/Press Association Images

As World Wrestling Entertainment enters what it has branded its “New Reality,” the company appears to be shedding much of its old branding and concerns. In the ring, the Undertaker’s streak is a memory, now allowing for Wrestlemania to be marketed without significant heat being placed on the idea of how to give a rising star a rub while they’re still being defeated. From a standpoint of commerce, the WWE Netork has altered the company’s earning streams, insofar as the company is now clearly moving away from being dependent upon video and PPV as being a high-priority revenue stream. However, there is one nagging issue from the company’s prior era that should absolutely be handled, that being allowing John Cena to gain a consistent babyface crowd response.

As much as the question of “who is the face of WWE” was »

Divas Championship: Paige Vs Tamina Snuka Official For Extreme Rules

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

Paige will defend her Diva Championship against Tamina Snuka at Extreme Rules. The match was made official on WWE Main Event, Snuka won a number one contender battle royal, elevating her to the position of being Paige’s first big WWE feud.

This makes the Extreme Rules card as follows: The Shield vs Evolution, John Cena vs Bray Wyatt in a steel cage, Paige vs Tamina. Also expected to be added is Daniel Bryan defending his WWE title against Kane, and Cesaro winning the Raw Intercontinental title tournament to take on Big E for the belt at the PPV. That will probably be the main card right there.

The booking of Paige has so far left a lot to be desired. She got a great debut reaction owing to her being something different from the same old act we see every week, but beyond that the creative made absolutely no sense. »

WWE Raw 4/14/2014 Review: 5 Things We Learned

15 April 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

We are officially just over one week removed from the above average broadcast of Wrestlemania XXX, and now things begin to take shape for the next WWE pay per view, Extreme Rules. With one match already officially on the card, a rematch from Wrestlemania XXX featuring Bray Wyatt and John Cena, the coming weeks will look to tighten up the event’s main bouts while further moving the story lines along.

And with that said, this weeks WWE Raw program was again a mixed bag, with nothing too outstanding or terribly awful. It was a solid show, with several significant developments, but also a few steps taken back with some rather silly segments. All in all, though, it was a decent follow up to the very hot Raw following Wrestlemania XXX last week, though this weeks crowd was less than stellar, clearly not holding up their end of the total wrestling experience bargain. »

WWE Royal Rumble 2015: 10 Potential Winners

15 April 2014 1:53 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Though the road to Wrestlemania has only just culminated with the sight of 70,000 people chanting ‘Yes!’ to their bearded icon, Daniel Bryan, the rest of the year still goes some way in shaping how the card will look for the following year’s showcase of the immortals. Long-term booking may be largely forgotten in the world of professional wrestling, and save for John Cena vs The Rock being booked a whole year ahead of the bout, the WWE seem to be taking things as they come, now more so than ever. Altering rivalries, angles, and even matches on a pay-per-view, the ‘Reality Era’ is really concentrated on ‘calling an audible’ ie. changing things at the flip of a coin when the audience start to boo. While it means that long scale storylines are rarely followed through anymore, it also makes the future seem a lot more unpredictable, and therefore exciting. »

WWE Extreme Rules Matches Latest – John Cena vs Bray Wyatt Steel Cage Match Added

15 April 2014 12:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The first official match has been announced for the Extreme Rules Special Event (Pay Per View) on May 4th in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Bray Wyatt was in the ring talking trash about John Cena when Cena made his presence known after he was called out. Cena tried some comedy that didn’t really work, but then he got down to business. Cena challenged Wyatt to a match at Extreme Rules. It wasn’t just any match, though. It was a Steel Cage Match. Wyatt accepted.

It will be interesting to see how they book the match. Cena won clean at WrestleMania, so he really doesn’t need another win unless they want to end the feud there. If they want to continue the feud then Wyatt should get the win to make him look like he’s on Cena’s level. They could have a third and »

John Cena vs Bray Wyatt Advertised For ‘Extreme Rules Match’ At Next WWE PPV

14 April 2014 3:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

John Cena will face Bray Wyatt in an ‘Extreme Rules Stipulation Match’ at the May 4th Extreme Rules pay-per-view, according to the Izod centre where the event will be filmed at.

It isn’t official in WWE storylines yet, but it wouldn’t be the first time a WWE venue has leaked away planned matches ahead of time. They do after all have to promote something in order to sell tickets in the local East Rutherford, New Jersey area. Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan, Big Show and Batista are also listed to appear.

The booking of Cena vs Wyatt was expected. It will be the follow up to Cena’s win over Bray at WrestleMania 30, and the added incentive of the Extreme Rules stipulation will help give the match new interest to fans. The stipulation will also give WWE a way of having John Cena lose without him losing any status, »

WWE: 4 Missed Clues That The Undertaker’s Streak Was Ending

13 April 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

For over two decades The Undertaker’s WrestleMania winning streak was a lone constant in an industry in continuous flux. Year after year, WrestleMania after WrestleMania, the WWE fans witnessed one of the greatest professional wrestlers in The Undertaker add to his WrestleMania winning streak and with it chronicle one of the most phenomenal accolades in wrestling history.

Few actually thought that the streak would be broken, with many assuming that its end would naturally coincide with The Undertaker’s inevitable retirement from the squared circle. After all if legends like Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair and Triple H had failed in their attempt at defeating The Undertaker at WrestleMania, what real threat did lesser decorated contenders pose to the survival of the streak? It made sense that Cm Punk would lose to The Undertaker at WrestleMania 29 and, for many, it made even more sense that Brock Lesnar »

12 Incredible Recent Matches To Get You Back Into WWE

13 April 2014 1:33 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WrestleMania 30 has come and gone and the buzz surrounding the show has attracted quite a few viewers who may not have been regulars prior to the Showcase of the Immortals. Despite what was a stellar Monday Night Raw, there are still many who cannot get past the idea that today’s WWE product is not as good as what they remember, regardless of whether they grew up in the Ruthless Aggression Era, the Attitude Era or the Federation Era of the late-1980s. A closer look at some of the phenomenal matches that the company has produced over the last two years proves otherwise.

With talent such as John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, The Shield, Cm Punk and Alberto Del Rio, it should be no surprise that the company has been on the greatest run of its 50 years of existence from an in-ring standpoint. The epic clashes, »

WWE: 7 Ways To Book John Cena Through To SummerSlam 2014

13 April 2014 1:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Now that WrestleMania 30 is in the rear view window, there are plenty of questions about how future stars in WWE are going to be booked. Talents like The Shield, Cesaro, Wyatt and of course Daniel Bryan are stepping up in ways that are making them major players.

Along with those younger, newer stars there are several outstanding veteran talents that still have a major role in the company. Men like Randy Orton, Batista and Kane are in positions where they have so much value as veterans with over a decade of experience that can work with those younger guys to make them bigger stars.

Then there’s John Cena. In the past couple of months, Cena has made it a point to call himself the “measuring stick” in WWE. If people want to become bigger stars, they have to get through him. We see that kind of thing in sports all the time. »

WWE: Brock Lesnar Will Face Cesaro Or The Rock At WrestleMania 31 – Report

12 April 2014 3:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Brock Lesnar versus Cesaro or The Rock is currently pencilled in for WrestleMania 31, reports the Figure Four Weekly Newsletter.

The reason for Cesaro being placed in the equation is over doubts about The Rock being willing to work. The 41 year old Dwayne Johnson is increasingly injury prone, as proved by his Mania 29 effort with John Cena, there is doubts his Hollywood agents would sanction a Rock match in 2015 due to safety and film insurance reasons. Added to this is the fact Undertaker got badly injured in what was considered to be a ‘safe’ version of a Brock Lesnar match at WrestleMania 30.

However, while Rock vs Brock would be the bigger draw, the exciting possibilities of matching Cesaro against Lesnar would be a real treat for the internet wrestling community. Cesaro has proved to be arguably the best in-ring wrestler in the company over the last couple of years, »

WWE: 10 Times Superstars Went Superhero

12 April 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Professional Wrestling and comic books share many fans and, unsurprisingly, many similarities! In both instances, you have dastardly villains always attempting to dominate and reign supreme … they will do anything in their power to achieve their ultimate goal, including – but not limited to – sleeping their way to the top (Trish Stratus, circa 2000-2001), leading a collection of subservient baddies and operating under the “pack” mentality (Wade Barrett in The Nexus), or using everything at their disposal including their vast wealth and reputation in an attempt to beat their rival into submission (anyone with the last name “McMahon” or anyone who married into the family).

However, for every Joker or Lex Luthor that rears its ugly head comes a resilient and determined hero who will risk his or her well-being all for the sake of delivering justice or promoting peace. Wrestlers such as John Cena exhibit the strength of a real-life Superman, »

WWE: 10 Reasons Alexander Rusev Can Be A Top Guy

11 April 2014 12:06 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Monday night’s post-WrestleMania episode of Raw was notable for the debut of several new Superstars. Paige stunned the world by defeating Aj Lee and ending her 295-day reign as Divas champion. Adam Rose and Bo Dallas appeared in vignettes that hyped their impending arrivals. It was the in-ring debut of the “Bulgarian Brute” Alexander Rusev, however, that may have made the greatest impact.

Sure, his match against Zack Ryder was a squash but the manner in which he defeated the United States champion, the hard-hitting and high-impact offense he used to demolish Long Island Iced Z was truly impressive and indicated that Rusev is not in WWE to make friends, respect his competition or show any remorse for the beatings he dishes out. With the “Ravishing Russian” Lana being the only one that can truly control him, WWE appears to be at the mercy of the former »

‘WWE Royal Rumble 2014′ Blu-ray Review

11 April 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

So, here we are, officially on the road to WrestleMania, the time of year where WWE pull out all the stops in order to sell as many PPV’s as possible come April. Royal Rumble has always been the beginning of this segment of the year and often is the time when WWE brings in popular faces, pushes people higher up the card and creatively attempts to make the product red hot in time for the grandest stage of them all.

2014 has started both badly and well, in different ways, and the Royal Rumble event really highlighted those reasons better than I can explain with metaphors, so let’s get into the review shall we?

The pre-show match (included as an extra on both the DVD and Blu-ray release) features the reigning WWE Tag Team Champions, Cody Rhodes and Goldust, defending their belts against a team who last competed for »

Monday’s WWE Raw Will Be Ultimate Warrior Tribute Show

11 April 2014 5:36 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The April 14th Raw this coming Monday from Birmingham, Alabama will be a tribute show for Ultimate Warrior, reports f4wonline.

The news will be welcomed by WWE fans who are still reeling from Warrior’s sudden death aged 54 this past Tuesday. Coming just days after his Hall of Fame induction and triumphant Raw return promo, his death appears to have really hit the wrestling community in a way no wrestler death has for many years now.

WWE’s response reflects this, they rarely book Raw tribute shows, although manager Paul Bearer’s passing was granted a special in 2013. Before that you are going back as far as the mis-judged Benoit Memorial Raw back in 2007 before the true details of his death were revealed.

By booking a tribute show it will give the WWE performers a chance to pay their public respects. Expect various interviews and segments talking about Warrior. »
