I know what you're thinking: How am I supposed to focus on wrestling when the Rockies just reportedly traded All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to the Blue Jays for a package including equally injury-prone shortstop Jose Reyes? I hear you, but did you see what happened to John Cena's nose against Seth Rollins? When was the last time one of your precious Mlb superstars suffered a spontaneous, bloody blow to the face during three hours of otherwise PG entertainment? Oh, wait.
Well, nonetheless wrestling still rules. Usually. And last night »
Still think wrestling is fake?? WWE superstar John Cena -- star of one of the biggest movies in the country right now -- broke his nose during Monday Night Raw last night ... after Seth Rollins bashed him in the face with a flying knee. Despite blood dripping from his honker, the "Trainwreck" star continued with the match WWE doc Steve Daquino says Cena suffered a nasal fraction -- and explained, "He’s got quite a bit of displacement, »

There was a lot on the line Monday night when John Cena and Seth Rollins wrestled on Monday Night Raw. With Cena's United States Championship on the line, the pressure was on. Fortunately for Cena, he was able to defeat Rollins, but not without a serious injury! Rollins slammed his knee into Cena's face, causing his nose to basically shatter and blood to spill everywhere. Throughout the rest of the match Cena kept touching his face and nose, shaking his head every so often, but the Trainwreck actor wasn't going to let a broken nose stop him; he actually ended up winning the fight after several doctors examined him. "John Cena's nose is in the side of his face," said one ringside »
Since tapping out to John Cena’s Stf, slap-bang in the middle of the ring at Battleground, Kevin Owens’ push could well be in danger. Their feud looks to be pretty decisively over, at least for now, and even if Owens jumps Cena on the next edition of Raw, it’s unlikely that he’ll get another in-ring shot for quite some time. The pair have faced one another on three straight Pay Per Views now, and even though they tore the house down each time, it’s clearly time to freshen things up for both men.
Owens’ next step is absolutely crucial. History has proven that a high-profile loss to John Cena can spell disaster for even the most promising of superstars (and the former Roh Champion is as promising as they come). If anybody has the ability and charisma to rise above such a decisive, potentially damaging defeat, »

John Cena suffered a broken nose during Monday night’s Raw main event where he successfully defended his United States Title against Seth Rollins. The injury occurred when Rollins nailed him with a knee to the face that knocked Cena down legitimately and caused his nose to bleed throughout the rest of the match.
The ringside doctor actually went in the ring to check on Cena during a couple of different points in the match, but Cena told him that he was fine. They ended up having a fantastic main event match that Cena won with the Stf submission hold.
After Raw was over, WWE.com posted several black and white photos of Cena with his nose broken. They post them in black and white because they don’t want the blood to be visible.
WWE ringside physician Dr. Steve Daquino commented on the injury: “As »

This week’s edition of Monday night Raw takes place in Oklahoma City and it’s not expected that Brock Lesnar or The Undertaker will be there., even after they had a very memorable brawl on Raw last week.
Lesnar is expected back on Raw next Monday August 3 in San Jose and Minneapolis on August 17. The Undertaker’s schedule isn’t known, but it’s entirely possible he would be on those same shows as Lesnar. Even though Undertaker and Lesnar won’t appear, they will still likely feature in some capacity because WWE will run video packages celebrating last week. Plus, Paul Heyman could be there to do a promo to help further the storyline as well.

When WWE announced that the usual Elimination Chamber PPV that was due to be held in February was being replaced by a new contest called Fast Lane, there was speculation that the WWE event with the most impressive stage set by far was destined for the scrap heap. It was a huge surprise then when it was announced on the 11th May edition of Raw that Elimination Chamber would be returning exclusively on the WWE Network at the end of the month.
Not only that, WWE made history in announcing that Elimination Chamber 2015 would be hosting the first ever tag team bout in the fearsome structure, and making it for the WWE Tag Team Championship at that. Pitting The New Day versus Cesaro & Tyson Kidd versus Prime Time Players versus Los Matadores versus Lucha Dragons versus The Ascension, this ground breaking match was given sufficient time to breathe and delivered magnificently. »
So much has happened in the WWE Universe in the last twelve months that it’s hard to believe that Payback 2014 was the last time the The Shield were together, having split following Seth Rollins’s shocking betrayal on the following night’s Raw. It was very apt, then, that the main event for Payback 2015, a Fatal 4-Way match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship featured all three former members of The Shield as well as Randy Orton, who they had demolished as part of Evolution at Payback 2014.
One particular moment stood out, when Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and defending champion Seth Rollins momentarily joined forces to triple powerbomb Orton on the commentator’s table, sending the audience wild in the process, but any hopes for a Shield reunion were dashed after Ambrose and Reigns turned down Rollins’s attempt to have them put their fists together in the old Shield manner. »
Vince McMahon proudly hurled the n-word on national TV, which makes his decision to fire Hulk Hogan for the same offense outrageous ... so claims Hulk. Vince was doing backstage color after a WWE event back in 2005, when he very deliberately used the n-word as he pranced away from John Cena. Even more shocking, he said it right smack in front of black wrestlers Booker T and Sharmell. Hulk is outraged Vince is acting so self-righteous, »

John Cena naked might be a glorious thing to behold, but his fellow WWE star Big Show draws the line at seeing the man's semi-erect penis on a massive movie screen. We got Big Show at Lax, and filled him on (spoiler alert) Cena's scene in "Trainwreck" where he shows off a good bit of his championship goods. The big man's reaction is priceless -- at first, he's totally comfortable, but the details of »

His removal from WWE also impacts the ongoing filming of Tough Enough. He was a judge and one of the big marketing aspects of the show. The fact that WWE felt the need to remove him from a current show and their Hall Of Fame, that gives you some indication of how serious this story could be.
But let’s remember that the racist tape is just a rumour and allegation. There are other factors as to why WWE have decided to get rid of Hogan. In some ways, it wouldn’t have been a hard decision, it isn’t like the guy is John Cena. Hogan’s days »

Just look at the Divas division. The fans had to step in to demand change, and although it took a while, #GiveDivasAChance actually worked. So, now that’s done with, it’s about time someone else just as deserving of a push gets to use that hashtag as their own. It’s time, WWE, to #GiveCesaroAChance.
After being dropped during the middle of an impressive run in 2014, Cesaro has recently risen back up the card after starring in two incredible matches with John Cena as part of the Cenation leader’s Us Open Challenges. Genuine Match of the Year candidates, they gave Cesaro the chance to once again show that he’s got what it takes to succeed as part of the WWE’s main event scene. »

Will WWE be able to continue with any of the momentum they seem to have built through the choices highlighted here? That’s a question that will take a while longer to answer, but some of these decisions have already been negated or rendered completely null and void so things could easily go either way.
Here’s the 10 best WWE booking decisions of 2015 so far…

There was a time when both the Intercontinental and United States championships were some of the most coveted titles in the business, from both a real and kayfabe perspective. They were usually viewed as steppingstones to bigger and better things for whoever held them and could easily draw houses and interest based on their own merit.
Those days are long gone.
Both belts have been reduced to worthless pieces of tin that serve as props for directionless workers, »

With her latest buddy comedy Sisters — in which she stars with friend and fellow SNL alum Tina Fey — having been recently completed, the void in Poehler’s schedule will likely be filled with the demands of the new Universal Pictures film, which the comedienne is also set to produce.
There aren’t a whole lot of details surrounding the project at the moment but according to Deadline, Poehler will play “a once-promising basketball coach” who deals with all sorts of pressures as she takes on the opportunity to lead an NBA basketball team backed by a somewhat reluctant parent organization. Barinholtz, who broke out as Ivan Dochenko in Danny McBride’s Eastbound & Down, is also said to play an unspecified role in the movie.

Trainwreck is all about star Amy Schumer, but it's easy to get sidetracked by the seemingly endless parade of cameos in the movie. Basketball legend LeBron James has a substantial role, Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei star in a movie inside the movie, Matthew Broderick appears, and even WWE star John Cena is in there. It's a random assortment - and then there are the comedians. Tons of Saturday Night Live players turn up, including some you might miss if you're not paying attention. Here are 13 comedians - besides Amy Schumer - who star in the film. »
Epic matches in the future? The first that comes to mind is Daniel Bryan. He is Shawn Michaels reborn. I would love to retire against a wrestler I believe has won over the hearts of millions of fans. How did he win their hearts? He’s that good. Give me 30 minutes with Daniel Bryan and I will give you the match of the century.
It’s a match that a lot of fans would definitely want to see, but right now it’s not possible because Angle is under contract to Tna Wrestling and apparently has a deal that with them until January 2016. At that point, perhaps he could sign a deal to go back to WWE.
Last year when Angle was free, »

Show opens with a video package highlighting Finn Balor’s win over Kevin Owens in Tokyo. This win was from three weeks ago, which shows how much this show has been treading water while they waited for a new set of tapings.
Finn Balor comes out with the Nxt title to put over his win at Beast in the East and hypes his match with Kevin Owens at Takeover: Brooklyn. Finn did well here and the crowd lapped up every word he had to say. He said that Owens had accomplished a lot in his time in WWE, including injuring Sami Zayn and Neville, beating Cesaro and Rusev and even beating John Cena. He also mentioned that he’d injured Hideo Itami, which still isn’t proven. »

WWE Champion Seth Rollins vs. Us Champion John Cena – This would likely be for Rollins’ WWE Title. There’s a chance that Cena may lose the Us Title in the build up to the match with Rollins interfering, but it could just be built as champion vs. champion too.
Sting, Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose vs. The Wyatt Family – Since Erick Rowan is hurt, it’s unknown who might be joining Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper on the heel side. Sting is reportedly in great shape in preparation for this match as »

It was noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Jonathon Coachman, who previously worked for WWE as an announcer as well as authority figure, has been pushing for Espn to cover SummerSlam as if it was a real sporting event.
According to the report, some people within Espn think that WWE is really hot right now, even though ratings are at record lows and attendance numbers are down too. There are also others at Espn that are dead-set against the idea of covering WWE like a real sport because it’s really just a form of entertainment.

WWE Battleground has come and gone, bringing with it a series of revelations that has set us on a direct collision course for Summerslam. ‘The Biggest Party of the Summer’ is one of the true marquee events of the wrestling calendar, second only to Wrestlemania, so it was to be expected that they were going to deliver something big for the August event. Few could have predicted though that the big delivery in question would come in the form of a returning Undertaker.
Lesnar vs. Taker is unquestionably going to be the main event, but what does that mean for the future of the company’s most prestigious championship? Well, if the post-Battleground edition of Raw is anything to go by it looks like Seth Rollins has already found his next challenger, and it’s a »
