We took some time to catch up with the Total Divas and they've all been doing such fun things, from bachelorette parties to romantic dates with their significant others! Nikki Bella took some time to pick out the perfect pair of shoes for date night with boyfriend John Cena, while Trinity prepped for a solo match in the wrestling ring and showed off her hot new outfit! Eva Marie amped things up by going on a full-body cleanse, Brie Bella went on a shopping spree at Whole Foods and Nattie cuddled up with her beloved cat Louis and posed for pics with a young fan (potential future WWE Diva?) Ariane celebrated her two-year anniversary with boyfriend Vincent over a round of champagne, Summer Rae flew back to »
They say that blondes have more fun, but is that always the case? Eva Marie is the only redhead on Total Divas and she certainly stands out—both in and out of the ring! We decided to have some fun with our Divas by playing around to see what they would look like with the red bombshell's signature color...and you'll be surprised by the results! We're dying to know what John Cena will think when he sees Nikki Bella with red hair, and other Divas like Trinity Fatu actually pulled the look off quite well. Which Diva do you think had the most dramatic result? Are you team #AllRedEverything? Click on the pics below to see the rest of the Divas with red hair! Tune-in »
WWE and its flagship program, Monday Night Raw, have been suffering as of late. The global wrestling entity can’t seem to hit its stride or find an engaging storyline to hook viewers. The past few weeks especially have featured some lackluster Raw broadcasts, drawing harsh criticism from viewers and the wrestling community. However, this past Monday’s broadcast has brought about a new low point.
Much was said about WWE’s seemingly haphazard booking of the September 15th edition of Raw. The John Cena/Brock Lesnar segment was featured not during the main event slot but midway through the show’s second hour. Reportedly, this was an attempt to capture some of the NFL’s Monday Night Football audience — as the featured game was in halftime during the Lesnar/Cena brawl. As such, Mark Henry and Rusev closed out another awkward edition of Raw.
It seems that »

If you watched Monday’s edition of Raw then you probably noticed the order of the show was a bit different from what we were used to seeing. It started out with John Cena threatening Paul Heyman and telling him he had until “halftime” to produce Brock Lesnar or else Cena would beat up Heyman. Maybe some fans thought halftime meant halfway through Raw, which would have been about 9:30pmET. Instead what Cena meant was halftime of the Monday night NFL game between Philadelphia and Indianapolis.
As soon as halftime of the NFL game hit around 10pmET, Cena was on screen with Heyman doing their angle that brought out Lesnar. It led to a brief brawl with Cena getting the upperhand on Lesnar before security came down to the ring to break it up. What was bizarre about it is that it was an angle done to »

During a cute afternoon lunch date with boyfriend John Cena, Nikki Bella has a super cute slip-up! After joking about going back time, the Total Divas star makes a reference to one of John's favorite cars from Back to the Future—the DeLorean! "Dolerean?" she remarks with a confused look on her face. John watches with amusement as Nikki proceeds to mispronounce the car name several times, but he doesn't say anything and waits for her to try to figure it out! Watch the clip above to see the rest of the couple's cute moment! Tune-in for a brand new episode of Total Divas this Sunday at 9/8c on E! »
“I will give you a show like you have never ever seen before. Why? Because I can.” – Shawn Michaels
And he did! Shawn Michaels claimed that he could out perform everyone else on the roster and every year at WrestleMania he backed up those words. John Cena assured us all that “The Champ was here!” and that he was never going away. Nine years later he’s still here and shows no sign of ever leaving (regrettably). Paul Heyman promised us all that his client Brock Lesnar would conquer the Undertaker’s Streak and he delivered. They all lived up to their promises.
Then there are the wrestlers who failed. The superstars who promised all kinds of victories, accomplishments, reigns of terror and the like. But they never could. Sure it can be attributed to poor booking. Creative tend to lose interest in many wrestlers before they can make good on their threats. »

Wrestling is a strange beast these days. Up until the Attitude Era, you wouldn’t see the same set of wrestlers every single week. In fact, the top guys like Hulk Hogan or Randy Savage rarely showed up. You often had to pay to see them on a pay-per-view or at a live event. Go back to the territory days, and it was even rarer to see a big star. Now things are different. Want to see John Cena? Just turn on your TV on Monday night. Want to see anyone else on the roster? Well, if they don’t show up on Raw, you’ll most likely see them on SmackDown, Main Event or Superstars. Welcome to the era of seven hours of TV to fill every single week without an off-season.
Because of these circumstances, so much of WWE’s talent is overexposed to the point »

On this Sunday's all-new Total Divas, a lot of big changes are happening! Some are good and others...not so good. After John Cena discovers Nikki Bella's stash of secret meds, she is forced to tell him the truth about freezing her eggs. When he asks why, Nikki explains that she eventually may want kids one day. John remains quiet on the issue, which makes Nikki uncomfortable. Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan are busy packing up their things because they have some big news: While they're very excited, moving isn't as easy as they imagined. They end up butting heads on different things, including when Brie wants to get pregnant. During dinner with Eva Marie and Nattie, Nikki »
All right, that’s it, which WWE writer came up with the line “What can I say Chris? It’s the season premiere?” after Randy Orton attacked Chris Jericho? Whoever they are, fire them. Right now! I’ve heard a lot of lame and corny lines while watching wrestling over the years, but that one is near the top. I mean if Orton is going to be that brutal on the season premiere, I’d hate to see what he does for Sweeps’ month or on the President’s Day episode.
This week was another crazy one in the world of wrestling. We saw Seth Rollins nearly impaled by a cage, welcomed Tna introduce a one-legged war hero, witnessed Chris Jericho perform his best Peter Griffin knee in pain impression, and sighed as John Cena was tempted by the dark side once again. Was this the time that »

The month of September isn’t a busy time for WWE although the Night of Champions PPV coming up on September 21 looks like it will be a good show. There are eight matches announced for it with a big time main event rematch with Brock Lesnar defending the World Heavyweight Championship against John Cena.
There was some sadness in the wrestling world this week as we found out that Sean O’Haire committed suicide. We later found out that he was in and out of drug rehab sponsored by WWE about six times. He was only 43 years old. He’s a guy that had so much potential in wrestling, but it just didn’t work out for him.
On a positive note, the Nxt Takeover: Fatal 4-Way special on Thursday was a tremendous success for WWE. The fans that watched it seemed to love it. It really was »

Wrestling fans often fantasize about dream matches, regardless of whether they’re possible or not. For example, the chances of The Undertaker and Sting finally facing off at WrestleMania are likelier than ever with Sting close to signing a deal with WWE. However, a match between Daniel Bryan and Bret Hart is pretty much out of the question with Hart retired from in-ring competition. With most dream matches being of marquee value, they only place you’ll usually see them is on pay-per-view, most notably at WrestleMania. John Cena vs. The Rock, Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock, and Shawn Michaels vs. Kurt Angle all occurred on The Grandest Stage of Them All, but there are a handful of dream matches that did not.
In fact, there’s quite a few matches you never thought you’d see that didn’t go down on PPV at all. Whenever WWE »

One of the more interesting of WWE’s annual b-shows, Money in the Bank is the night of the year where a younger talent has the chance to grab the contract that sets them up for a built-in storyline and eventual chance at winning the WWE World Title. Here, there are two ladder matches, one for the contract and one for the vacant WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Daniel Bryan, who was forced to relinquish his WWE World Title due to a neck injury, appeared on the pre-show/kick-off show and told the world that he was still suffering effects of his injury and may still require further surgery, Bryan then promised he would be back as soon as he could and win back the WWE World Title. Time will tell, but I have a sinking feeling that Bryan’s time as “the guy” are behind us.
So, with a card »

The WWE’s resident superhero, John Cena, was absolutely destroyed at last month’s SummerSlam pay-per-view. The match was a one-sided mauling as Brock Lesnar dominated Cena and left with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Since that time, there’s been some internal fear within the company that Cena’s reputation was damaged. Maybe Lesnar was booked too strongly in the bout.
However, shortly following SummerSlam, John Cena returned to his equally dominant ways. He’s come out on top in nearly every battle since the PPV — most notably running through the entire Wyatt Family a few weeks ago. Apparently — and somewhat not surprisingly — Cena’s return to dominance is all due to WWE’s Chairman and CEO, Vince McMahon.
Reportedly, McMahon has made it abundantly clear to the creative team that Cena must be booked strongly from here on out. The Chairman doesn’t want Cena’s »

The Nxt Takeover: Fatal 4-Way event was a big success for WWE. Fans that watched the show seemed to have loved it and it proved again to be a big reason why fans should purchase WWE Network for only $9.99 Us per month. One of the moments that received the most attention was the debut of Kenta. It was noteworthy not only because it was his first time on WWE TV, but also because he announced he would be using a new name: Hideo Itami.
Itami was introduced by Nxt Commissioner William Regal. Originally it was going to be Ric Flair, but earlier on Thursday it was announced that Flair wouldn’t be at the event due to a personal matter. Itami received a huge ovation from the Nxt crowd. He spoke in Japanese and in English. His English isn’t great, but it’s good enough. He »

“I’m Here To Show The World” is not only the title and opening line of Dolph Ziggler’s theme song, it is also the attitude the current Intercontinental champion approaches every one of his matches with. Long held back because of what management perceived to be a lack of size, criticized for his mediocre mic skills and punished for comments made during radio interviews, Ziggler has never let outside forces or backstage politics deter him from delivering the best performance possible.
Whether defeating John Cena or losing to Zack Ryder, Ziggler is consistently responsible for some of the best matches of any given show. The energy he brings to every match, the passion he shows for his craft and his willingness to bump around the ring to make his opponent look that much more impressive is admirable. It is his drive and determination to give fans his all, »

John Cena has been WWE’s biggest star for the past decade. There’s really no question about it. Whether you like him or you hate him, any WWE fan knows who he is and they probably have a strong opinion about him.
Some people love the guy for the way he’s a role model to kids, the way he never gives up and always keeps on fighting like a good babyface should. Others are sick of him because they think he’s fake, he’s boring and he’s nothing like that cool rapping guy that he was a decade ago.
Cena is a 15 time WWE and World Heavyweight Champion that is closer to the end of his career at age 37, but it’s not like he’s going to slow down any time soon. He’s in great shape. Whenever he’s been injured he »

With the Night of Champions 2014 pay-per-view (are we still calling them “pay-per-views”?) quickly approaching, rumors are swirling about what WWE’s plans are moving into the autumn. With Daniel Bryan on the shelf indefinitely, it seems as though Brock Lesnar will revive the champion model of the 1980s. This means you’ll never see him wrestle on free television and his appearances will be few and far between. John Cena’s redemption story may be center stage but would WWE really switch the title this quickly?
With Summerslam looking like a relatively weak card heading into the event, WWE surprisingly put on a very good show with solid matches from top to bottom. Can Night of the Champions also deliver a surprise? With WWE seemingly on cruise control for the remainder of the calendar year, it’s extremely possible that this event could be a colossal waste of time. »

To say 2014 has been a historic year for WWE, for better or for worse, would an understatement. We’ve witnessed the birth of the WWE Network and the end of The Undertaker’s illustrious undefeated streak at WrestleMania, but one of the year’s most controversial and talked about stories since January has been Cm Punk’s abrupt departure from WWE. Many fans figured it was bound to happen at some point, but no one could have ever imagined that it would have happened so soon. It was difficult at first for many members of WWE Universe to cope with Punk’s absence from WWE TV, but they moved on as quickly as WWE and Punk apparently have.
Nevertheless, it’s rare that you venture to a wrestling website and not see Punk’s name among the headlines even all these months later. Punk has seldom spoke on »

This Tuesday on WWE Main Event, two more matches were made official for WWE’s Night of Champions PPV on September 21 in Nashville. The two matches will see Randy Orton take on Chris Jericho and Roman Reigns will match up with Seth Rollins in a battle of former Shield members.
The Orton/Jericho rivalry is something that goes back many years, most notably when Jericho came back to WWE towards the end of 2007 with Orton in position as the top heel in the company. They’ve had several matches over the years. Most likely the reason they’re doing the feud is to give Orton a win over a big name after he lost to Roman Reigns at SummerSlam. It was set up this week on Raw when Orton attacked Jericho in the trainer’s room. Jericho’s expected to be out of WWE after Night of Champions »

Bray Wyatt is one of WWE’s brightest young star that has only been on the main roster for a year. He’s had high profile feuds with the likes of Kane that he won, John Cena that he lost and he just won his feud with Chris Jericho after beating him in a Steel Cage match on Raw. For whatever reason, WWE isn’t including him in the Night of Champions PPV at least in a match.
A new report from F4WOnline.com notes that the plan for Wyatt is to have him start a feud with Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler in the very near future. That’s the rumor at least for now. As we know in wrestling, plans always seems to change.
It’s a feud that makes sense at least on paper because Wyatt’s a heel in the midcard that definitely has main event potential, »
