Bray Wyatt’s Cryptic Tweet Hints At Feud With Sting?

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

Twitter

Bray Wyatt has taken to Twitter to send out one of his usual cryptic messages. This most recent message may not be just another cryptic tweet. Instead, it seems to be aimed at one particular person.

The “destroy the scorpion” line may be a telling phrase. For most of his career, recent WWE signee and legendary wrestler, Sting, has been associated with the venomous animal. Therefore, it seems possible that Bray may be hinting at something to do with the 6-time WCW Champion.

The exciting, young competitor has been largely without focus of late. Since wrapping up his rivalry with Chris Jericho on Monday Night Raw a few weeks back, the enigmatic superstar has found himself without a purpose. Furthermore, Wyatt has been rarely used since defeating Jericho in a cage match on September 8th. As a matter of fact, Bray was not featured on the recent Night of »

Why Luke Harper Was “Set Free” By Wyatt Family On Last Night’s Raw

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

WWE.com

Last night’s Monday Night Raw featured the continuation of some recent storylines — most notably the ongoing feud between John Cena, Dean Ambrose, and Seth Rollins. During the broadcast, a video package was aired that featured Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper of the Wyatt Family — Erick Rowan was conspicuous by his absence. The short video was seemingly intended to put over Harper and plant the seed of a potential singles run.

As usual, the enigmatic Bray Wyatt did most of the talking during this segment. However, Luke Harper actually spoke toward the end of the package. The video further featured the typically static editing of the Wyatt Family’s earlier promos, as well as the familiar swamp-like setting. The so-called Eater of Worlds, Bray Wyatt, mentioned how he “found” Harper and that he had “nothing but broken memories.” After pondering, “what do you give a man that has nothing, »

WWE, Susan G. Komen Tag Team for Third Year to Fight Breast Cancer

17 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

WWE has agreed to flex its muscle to promote the Susan G. Komen’s fight against breast cancer for a third year.

The company’s platforms — including its TV show, mobile apps and social media feeds — will go pink, starting today, as part of a “Courage Conquer Cure” campaign that kicks off during “Monday Night Raw” on USA Network.

As part of the effort, WWE’s talent will wear apparel that’s co-branded with the Susan G. Komen foundation, with 20% of all retail sales for T-shirts and other merchandise made through WWEShop.com and WWE’s live events going to the organization. In addition, 5% of all other WWE merchandise sold will be donated, while consumers also will have the opportunity to make donations upon checkout.

Merchandise includes special “Keep Calm and Never Give Up” T-shirts inspired by John Cena, “Support the Twins” T-shirts, and pink Hulk Hogan “Hulkamania” T-shirts.

‘WWE Battleground 2014′ DVD Review

23 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

As one of WWE’s B pay per views, you can’t really set expectations too high. Fortunately, Battleground delivered a mostly okay PPV, with some pretty awesome high points and equally disappointing lost points and bad booking.

We start the main card with the Usos successfully defending their titles in a pretty good 2 out of 3 falls match against Erick Rowan and Luke Harper of the Wyatt Family. First fall went to the Wyatt Family who spent most of it applying chin locks and stomping the legal Uso, playing the isolation game before Harper delivered a big boot to Jimmy for the pin. Second fall was much of the same, Rowan and Harper using their size and strength against their opponents until a beaten Jimmy tags in Jey who gets the roll up on Harper for fall number 2. With the momentum in their favour, Jey and Jimmy start kicking it up a notch, »

Two Major Updates On The Undertaker At WrestleMania 31

29 September 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

twitter

The Undertaker has commented that he hasn’t ruled himself out of action at WrestleMania 31. This news comes as a WWE truck displayed new advertising for the March 29th megashow, with the most prominently featured superstar being The Undertaker.

Taker’s comments come via WrestleZone, who report that a fan called Tim Young talked with the wrestler over the weekend. This was at a charity micro marathon event which the WWE legend was taking part in. Young posted a photo of himself with Undertaker, and later revealed a conversation they had to WrestleZone’s Justin Labar.

“The most interesting comments Young is reporting is The Undertaker said he’s certainly not ruled out wrestling at WrestleMania 31.” Labar writes.

This comes as WWE rolled out the new production truck with Undertaker’s image next to the WrestleMania 31 sign. These two developments are pretty strong indications that Taker will be involved at Mania. »

10 Greatest Rivalries In WWE History

29 September 2014 12:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Rivalries are the backbone of any sport. They create match-ups and stories fans want to see and will continue to pay for well past the expiration date of a particular pairing. It is the raw emotion, the intense hatred and the quality of the action between the ropes that keeps the audience coming back for more. World Wrestling Entertainment history is dotted with some of the greatest rivalries, feuds and vendettas in the history of the industry. Some were born in the ashes of heartbreaking splits, others the result of a torrid love triangle and still others the product of a good, old-fashioned wrestling angle. Whatever the case may be, they have contributed to the success of Vince McMahon’s company for 50 years.

Industry icons such as Hulk Hogan, “Macho ManRandy Savage, Andre the Giant, Steve Austin, The Rock and John Cena have been integral parts of »

Review: WWE Battleground 2014 (Blu-ray)

27 September 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Leading the final charge towards SummerSlam, Battleground has become the PPV where WWE lines up all of its ducks going into the third of its big four presentations (after Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania and prior to Survivor Series).

This year they managed to not only put together a great card, but in terms of match quality they damn near knocked it out of the park.

As regular readers know, I love me a bit of a Battle Royale (the Rumble being my favourite flavour) so the standing room only clash for the vacant WWE Intercontinental Championship belt had me at hello. Man of the match, as per usual, was Kofi Kingston who performed his now requisite elimination save with aplomb, but the end of the bout caught me completely by surprise proving that Creative are still capable of pulling a fast one when they need to.

Another surprise was that the »

10 Reasons WWE Might Bring Back The World Heavyweight Championship

27 September 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

A constant struggle for WWE is presenting engaging main events. That’s partly due to a lack of depth in headline performers, but it’s mostly down to lacklustre creative ideas. A recent example was Battleground 2014, where John Cena retained his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a mish-mash fatal four way against Kane, Randy Orton and Roman Reigns. The co-main event of that night was an uninspiring 19 man battle royal for the vacant Intercontinental Championship. As a result of this flat main event booking, Battleground ended up being instantly forgettable.

It’s fairly typical of WWE’s woeful presentation right now. They lack meaningfulness in so many areas, which ultimately makes their matches less interesting. This feature will argue that a return of the World Heavyweight Championship will help address some of these shortfalls. WWE could really benefit from the use of the belt as a ‘prop’ right now, »

WWE SummerSlam Pay Per View Buyrate Revealed

27 September 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

WWE published new data this week, indicating that SummerSlam 2014 did between 140,000 and 150,000 preliminary pay per view buys. This would equate to 60,000 domestic buys and 80,000 international buys.

This can be viewed as somewhat of a success for the WWE. SummerSlam was up from Battleground, which drew 99,000 buys, 31,000 of which were domestic and 68,000 of which were international. So as you can see, Brock Lesnar being on the card ended up doubling WWE’s domestic performance. Business was also up from Money In The Bank, which only did 122,000 buys.

However, in some ways, these decent pay per view numbers are a bad sign. Why weren’t these 60,000 domestic buyers watching SummerSlam on WWE Network? It goes to show that WWE still isn’t convincing everyone to sign up to their service. In the long run, WWE Network will kill off pay per view, which will hopefully mean more subscribers for the ‘over the top’ streaming. »

10 Reasons Cm Punk Could Return At 9/29 Chicago Raw

26 September 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE’s flagship television program yet again returns to Cm Punk’s hometown on Monday. At this point though, the return comes at a point in time wherein smart mark intrigue about Punk’s return is not misplaced.

Recently, WWE’s top-tier babyface ranks have been decimated by injury, as Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns are out with injuries until an undetermined point in the future. Furthermore, Chris Jericho and Rob Van Dam – previous babyfaces brought back to the product to add numbers to the babyface side – have both been used, and other potential top babyface Batista is still months away from his expected post-Guardians of the Galaxy return. More than at any other point in recent memory, the clamoring for Cm Punk’s return is founded in logic and truth instead of falsely impassioned idealism.

At present, WWE as a roster (and the feuds in which »

10 Reasons WWE Needs To Shoot A Quick Face Turn On Bray Wyatt

26 September 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

There was a time not that long ago that Bray Wyatt was the centerpiece of WWE’s new young, hot talent like Cesaro and The Shield. The performer formerly known as Husky Harris, whose wrestling roots run deep in his family tree, debuted in 2013 behind a tremendous amount of hype and immediately picked up momentum.

Well, a lot has changed in a few short months. Wyatt went from being in a featured program at WrestleMania XXX versus John Cena to feeling like something of an afterthought after a disappointing feud with Chris Jericho. Now he’s stuck spinning his wheels and wasn’t even present at either Night of Champions or the following Raw in Memphis.

Rumors of a feud with Dolph Ziggler have been floating around, as well as the apparent seeds of a program against Big Show being planted on television, but either of those feels »

John Cena Possibly Wrestling Dean Ambrose At Hell In A Cell

25 September 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The main event of WWE’s Hell in a Cell PPV is a big question mark at this point with reports that WWE Champion Brock Lesnar isn’t going to be wrestling on the card. When Lesnar won the WWE Title, we knew that he wouldn’t be wrestling on every PPV although there have been reports that said he would wrestle a bit more often. Most likely he’s skipping Hell in a Cell and he could return for Survivor Series in November, which is seen as more of a major show.

With Lesnar out of the mix, what will WWE do at Hell in a Cell on October 26? According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com on his latest radio show, there’s a plan involving John Cena, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Randy Orton.

The lineup would see the two babyfaces Cena and Ambrose wrestling »

Finn Balor Is The WWE Name of Fergal Devitt

25 September 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

twitter

The Nxt debut of Fergal “Prince” Devitt is imminent, possibly at the Nxt tapings that are taking place today in the Orlando area. He has a new name too: Finn Balor.

Here’s some info on the possible origin: “Finn is a name of Irish origin that translates into “fair.” The name Balor comes from Irish Mythology as Balor was the name of the monarch of the Formorians, a race of giants who ruled Ireland before the arrival of the Tuatha De Danann, the gods worshiped by the Celts & Druids before the rise of Christianity. Balor was essentially a Cyclops, a giant with a single eye in the center of his forehead, and was viewed as the God of drought & blight. The myths sort of compare the Formorians to the Titans of Greek Mythology and that they were essentially gods of chaos and wild nature.”

WWE Raw Garners Lowest Rating Of The Year

24 September 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE and its flagship Monday Night Raw program have faced a great deal of criticism from fans in the recent weeks and months. The WWE Universe has derided the company for its current creative direction and recent decision-making. As a result of their disappointment in the product, some fans have simply moved on and changed the channel.

It was just last week that Raw had attracted its lowest television audience since May. Competing against the year’s debut edition of Monday Night Football, WWE Raw pulled in about 3.8 million viewers. The company attempted to counter the strong competition by airing the pull-apart brawl between John Cena and Brock Lesnar during halftime of the NFL broadcast.

This week, however, no such tricks were pulled. Instead, Raw went toe-to-toe with Monday Night Football and lost. As a matter of fact, the September 22nd edition of Raw garnered the lowest rating »

WWE in Crisis with Brock Lesnar and world championship

24 September 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

WWE has booked itself into a corner with a monster heel WWE World Heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar and they need to act fast before the long-lasting effects of having a part-time champion kicks in. Having house shows and weekly televised events missing its top champion has to be hurting the business. It already feels like every week is a struggle to compensate for a championless show with absurd main event segments involving Divas and mid-level stars like Mark Henry and Rusev.

Lesnar has ended the Undertaker’s streak and has defeated Cena in commanding fashion for the WWE World Heavyweight title. Cena got a Dq win over Brock at the recent Night of Champions event, but a title loss from Brock has yet to come. When Brock loses the title, it will have to be monumental and the rumor was to have Roman Reigns defeat him at WrestleMania 31. Unfortunately, Reigns »

10 Times You Were Proud To Be A WWE Fan

24 September 2014 6:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Professional wrestling can be a tricky beast. Public perception of the sport is far from sparkling. It is perceived to be the lowest form of entertainment in the world, something only toothless rednecks from trailer parks, those same men, women and children that enjoy “Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo,” would watch. It is stupid, mindless and embarrassing, at least in the eyes of those who do not understand or appreciate what they are actually seeing. As a result, plenty of people who enjoy watching Raw and SmackDown, are subscribers to the WWE Network and own a closet full of wrestling merchandise, are not quick to admit their admiration for the Superstars and Divas who perform on a nightly basis, traveling from city-to-city 300-days a year to entertain a new audience every evening.

With that said, there are plenty times that have helped fans overcome their shame or embarrassment. Whether »

What Are WWE’s Plans For Brock Lesnar At Hell In A Cell?

23 September 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Brock Lesnar has been on a tear since winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam on August 17th of this year. Just a few days ago, Lesnar defended his title in a rematch against John Cena at Night of Champions. Despite technically losing the match, Lesnar was able to retain his coveted championship thanks to the interference of Seth Rollins.

However, Lesnar continues to be a part-time competitor — only making a handful of appearances in a month. Last night’s Monday Night Raw was no different, as the champ was nowhere to be found. Interestingly, the Beast’s advocate, Paul Heyman, was also conspicuous by his absence.

According to reports, Paul Heyman was originally scheduled to appear on Raw to speak on behalf of his client. However, it seems that plans changed at some point during the day, as Heyman failed to appear. Rumors suggest that the »

WWE News On Creative Issues, Lack Of Brock Lesnar At Raw

23 September 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Last night’s Raw was another show that left WWE fans scratching their hands about some of the things that happened. It seemed like the goal was to push Dean Ambrose and his return, which is fine, but everything else on the show just seemed off.

During last night’s Wrestling Observer Radio at F4WOnline, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez talked about some of the creative issues with the show. They noted that Paul Heyman was originally booked for Raw to talk about the WWE Title situation, but if you watched the show then you know that there was no sign of him all night.

Brock Lesnar was also not on Raw. He never booked for or advertised to be at the show, so that’s to be expected, but fans also expected to at least here from one of them to talk about the previous night »

10 Things WWE Did Right At Night Of Champions

23 September 2014 12:50 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The 2014 edition of WWE Night of Champions is done and once again it was a show that was building to the next PPV rather than providing fans with finality on a lot of the major storylines.

Brock Lesnar, the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, wasn’t able to beat John Cena although he’s still the champ thanks to the interference from Seth Rollins. It’s probably going to lead to another Lesnar/Cena match possibly at October’s Hell in a Cell event.

Since the PPV was called Night of Champions, all five titles in WWE were on the line. Three of them changed hands. Two of the title victories were by people that lost their titles five weeks earlier at SummerSlam.

The absence of Roman Reigns was addressed. In case you haven’t read or heard about it, Reigns is on the shelf for a few »

WWE Champion Brock Lesnar’s Health Worry At Night Of Champions

22 September 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

twitter

Worried WWE fans have expressed concern at Brock Lesnar’s physical appearance during WWE Night Of Champions. The current WWE Champion started his match against John Cena with a completely normal look. However, after just a couple of minutes, Lesnar was already sweating profusely and had turned both red and purple in his face. This is normal for someone undergoing intense physical exertion, but Lesnar was barely doing anything of note. A rehearsed wrestling match shouldn’t be turning a man purple.

Indeed, Brock previously used far more athleticism in the Ufc a few years ago. On those genuine sporting occasions, Brock never turned this strange colour. Yet in a predetermined wrestling match, Lesnar looked like he’d just done an hour on a gym treadmill at full speed. Fans have noted that in addition to turning red and intensely sweating, Brock also appeared to be struggling for breath. »
