WWE Summerslam plans revealed? WWE star leaving! – WrestleTalk News

17 May 2017 3:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

On last week’s Smackdown Live, Rusev announced he’ll appear on this week’s episode to confront Shane McMahon. The Bulgarian Brute has been out with injury since February – where he’s since found himself both drafted to Smackdown and split up from his long-time manager Lana – and now he’s demanding a championship opportunity at Money in the Bank on his return.

It turns out, though, Lana was responsible for more than just wearing red power suits and call cities by the wrong name. She also appears to have been managing Rusev’s diary, as he’s missed his first Smackdown appearance, not showing up at all on last night’s episode.

Why was he absent? A sporting event scheduling clash, of course.

Sorry #SmackDownLIVE I had to make the @PredsNHL game. See you when I see you. »

Cm Punk & Batista on Randy Orton shoot, Braun Strowman injury a work? – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Randy Orton helped create a new wrestling meme from outta nowhere at the weekend, when he retweeted a critique of the indy match formula – handshake, drawn out move exchange, this is awesome chant, strike exchange, dive, no sell Indy strongstyle, dive, more strikes, no sells, dive, flippy floppy sequence, dive, etc.

Just got this …. pic.twitter.com/S8Vczlmbew

Randy Orton (@RandyOrton) May 13, 2017

This initially drew responses from a seemingly angry Tjp, a surprisingly agreeable Ricochet, and a merchandise potential realising Will Ospreay.

The Viper didn’t strike again until Bubba Ray Dudley jokingly tweeted about his own version of the ‘…dive’ – a belly flop from the top rope.

WWE Tag Team Implodes! Braun Strowman Out 6 Months! | WWE Raw, May 15, 2017 Review

16 May 2017 7:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Kurt Angle Talks Balls

Kurt Angle opened the show revealing Braun Strowman will be out with injury for up to six months. Which, reportedly, appears to be untrue. It’s reportedly damn untrue. 

But who’s going to have the balls to face Brock Lesnar in his place? Kurt actually said ‘balls’ here, presumably because Great Balls of Fire is still an actual name for a pay-per-view.

To test the Raw roster’s testicular fortitude, Angle announced Extreme Rules will have a Fatal Five Way No. 1 contender’s match – with Seth Rollins, Samoa Joe, Bray Wyatt, Finn Balor and Roman Reigns.

After the usual copy and paste ‘every one interrupts each other’s promo’ guff, Angle made Seth Rollins vs Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns vs Finn Balor for later that night.

WWE injury update, major Bullet Club news at Ring Of Honor – WrestleTalk News

15 May 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

One of WWE’s most gruelling annual schedules – the promotion’s tour of Europe, running 24 shows in 14 different countries over just 11 days – has finally come to an end, and the rather tired WWE wrestlers are getting some well deserved rest, by becoming half human/half blanket hybrids.

Aj Styles posted that Charlotte photo on Instagram, sparking a war with the former 228 time Women’s Champion, who quickly retorted with The Phenomenal One’s much less graceful sleeping pose.

As the exhausted Raw roster will be heading straight into action this evening, expect the in-ring action to be slightly sloppy, and the average match time to be even shorter than usual. But at least we’ll get to see what direction WWE is heading in with Braun Strowman now no longer facing Brock Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire because of injury. »

Brock Lesnar WWE return date revealed, Randy Orton shoots on Twitter – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Randy Orton very rarely posts on social media, but when he does, it’s often noteworthy. Mainly because it rivals Daniel Bryan in the art of not giving an F-word.

A debate over the formulaic nature of independent wrestling started over the weekend, when wrestling legend and current head Ovw trainer Rip Rogers shared a message from wrestler Daniel ‘D-Man’ Parker on Twitter:

Just got this …. pic.twitter.com/S8Vczlmbew

— Rip Rogers (@Hustler2754) May 13, 2017

I too enjoyed Ring of Honor’s War of the Worlds show at the weeken-oh wait. He’s being sarcastic.

This would’ve most likely stayed a fringe discussion on Twitter. But then the message was reposted by the WWE Champion, with the caption:

Ten Feuds We Could See In WWE This Summer

13 May 2017 5:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe looks ahead at ten potential feuds that could take place in the WWE this summer…

With WrestleMania season officially done and dusted, and the rosters having settled down following all the debuts, returns and swaps – WWE fans can now begin to look forward to the company’s summer season. With plenty of new faces on both shows, the WWE should use this opportunity to provide fans with some exciting new feuds leading into SummerSlam and potentially beyond.

SummerSlam, which takes place in August, is often seen as the company’s second biggest show and tends to bring to a conclusion feuds that have been running through the summer months. With that time nearly upon us – here is a look at ten potential feuds we could see this summer.

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

If you told me just a few years ago that the guy from The Apprentice with questionable hair would be the President of the United States, I would reply: “I’m fine, thank you. I don’t want all the drugs in the world that you’ve just taken.”

So it’s probably wise to not count out Rock ‘The Dwayne’ Johnson becoming the new President in 2020.

BetOnline.org have slashed The Dwayne’s Head of State odds to a very tasty 80-to-1, prompting both The Washington Post to write an article on his potential bid, and Oscar-winning documentary maker Michael Moore to glowingly endorse the People’s Champion:

Run the Rock! Run the Rock! Who do you want for commander in chief? I want the f***ing Rock! It would scare anybody that would hurt us. »

WWE star takes shot at Cm Punk, WWE signing ex-tna stars? – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

After Raw broke records this week, setting its lowest non-holiday, non-football season viewership number for 20 years, it was up to Smackdown to get a record of its own. Hopefully the good kind.

Thankfully, the blue brand was up from last week’s lowest rating of 2017 so far, pulling in an extra 50,000 viewers to make it 2.35 million.

Far more important, of course, are your ratings. 62% of you thought it was Smack Bang in the Middle, while 23% thought it slightly better at SmackTastic.

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella have won the most prestigious mixed-gender tag division prize: a human child!

Brie gave birth to their daughter Birdie Joe Danielson on Tuesday night at 11.58pm, weighing in at 8 pounds, 10 ounces and standing at a fearsome 21 inches. To put that into context, she’d be on 205 Live, not the main roster.

Brie told WWE: “I can’t even express the overwhelming joy and love that Bryan and I are feeling. Now we know what parents mean about the love you feel when you first meet your child.”

Grandpa Vince McMahon wished the couple well on Twitter:

Congratulations to Brie @BellaTwins & @WWEDanielBryan on their beautiful daughter and newest addition to the @WWE family.

Vince McMahon (@VinceMcMahon) May 10, 2017

Sounds like you’ve signed her to a contract, Vince. That’s weird.

Braun Strowman injured, Brock Lesnar WWE match postponed? – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Yesterday we brought you news of Goldberg’s latest post-wwe venture – the Gold Burger. Today’s Goldberg story: how to parent your little Goldbergs.

Children tend to do what they see rather than what they’re told. A trait that becomes significantly more dangerous when what they’re seeing is their dad beating up Kevin Owens and Brock Lesnar on major WWE pay-per-views. Leading Goldberg to recently tweet:

God help me…. after dinner my son asked if he could choke slam his mom.

Bill Goldberg (@Goldberg) May 5, 2017

What’s wrong with you, Sonberg!? Your mother carried you in her womb for nine months. She gave birth to you, gave you life. You don’t just chokeslam your mother. We’re Goldbergs.

You spear her, then you jackhammer.

Since beating Goldberg at Wrestlemania 33, Brock Lesnar has yet to defend his Universal Championship. »

Matt & Jeff Hardy Tna update, WWE star allegedly beat up cameraman – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

What does one do after losing the Universal Championship to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 33? The answer, of course, is obvious: lend your name to a fast-food snack.

The Sugar Factory – which describes itself as “America’s favorite brasserie and candy shop” – has announced Goldberg will be appearing at its Las Vegas branch on the 20th May, where you can get a selfie with the WCW legend, an autographed photo And a taste of the Gold-burger.

No, not a chat up line from the former WWE superstar, but a “limited edition monster Goldburger gold-glazed bun, double angus beef patties, melted white and yellow cheddar, topped with onion rings, served with pickles, lettuce, tomato, Sugar Factory sauce, and hand cut fries”.

Charlotte Flair responds to nude image leaks, Hardys to WWE details – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Both the Raw and Smackdown rosters are currently on one of WWE’s most gruelling schedules of the year: the European tour. You’d think travelling between countries and staying in different hotels would hinder a wrestler’s strict diet. But not for ‘No Carbs’ Jinder Mahal, who has not only shared his European tour schedule in text-form on Instagram, but also the actual road map route using the veins on his body.

Jinder is currently negative percent body fat.

Titus O’Neil might have put himself in hot water on Wednesday when he tweeted an image of Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns hanging out together in Rome on the first day of the European tour – the two men currently engaged in Raw’s top blood feud.

Chris Jericho leaving WWE details, WWE star returns from injury! – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Last night’s episode of Nxt continued the build to Nxt TakeOver: Chicago, revealing who would face Asuka for her Women’s Championship.

Because Asuka decided to beat up the final three women in the No. 1 contenders Battle Royal main event, William Regal announced that it’ll be a Fatal 4 Way in Chicago, with Asuka defending against Nikki Cross, Ruby Riot and Ember Moon.

As reported several weeks ago, however, this was the match where Moon appeared to legitimately injure her shoulder, with fans in attendance saying she was escorted out in tears. Squared Circle Sirens then reported this was just a storyline injury, but she has since been spotted wearing a sling – suggesting she really is hurt.

There’s an old saying when it comes to buying a new home: location, location, and does it count as WWE memorabilia?

And boy, do we have an offer for you!

For an absolute steal of $36,000, you can purchase a wonderful, possibly haunted home in Richmond, Missouri. A cosy two bedroom house in the middle of nowhere complete with all the latest mod cons. Like pre-installed fire safety equipment, a creepy looking workshop to store your demonic tractor, and an entire room to worship your pagan god of choice.

Various wrestling news sites have tracked down the actual building used for Payback’s House of Horrors match between Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt, which is currently listed for sale as a “Fixer Upper’s dream!”

According to WrestleZone, the property was for sale as is, so »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Move aside, Capitol Punishment. You’ve been eliminated, Fatal Four-Way. WWE have announced arguably the worst name for a pay-per-view in the promotion’s history: WWE Great Balls of Fire.

Just Announced: @BrockLesnar defends his title when @WWE returns to Dallas on July 9!

Presale: Thurs. May 4 10Am

On Sale: Fri. May 5 at 10Am pic.twitter.com/bEhsjvNhNh

— Aac (@AACenter) April 28, 2017

The show appears to be replacing the previously rumoured Raw-exclusive pay-per-view Bad Blood in July.

It’s a name that raises many questions. Will there be a ‘fire’ gimmick match on the show? Will Jbl refer to the event as The Ultimate Fiery Ball Game? And who really is Byron Saxton?

But the most significant quandary coming out of the announcement is: why hasn’t Brock Lesnar been stripped of his Universal title?

WWE Payback 2017 Predictions

26 April 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe predicts the results of Sunday’s WWE Payback event…

WrestleMania 33 is now in the rear view mirror and the fallout from the event has seen several major changes in the WWE landscape.

Superstars and championships have moved homes, Nxt superstars have made their arrivals on the main roster, and most surprisingly of all, Jinder Mahal is now the number one contender for the WWE championship – what a time to be a wrestling fan.

The company returns to its brand specific pay per views this weekend, with their annual Payback event. The card features several big matches, despite the Universal title being absent from proceedings.  Here are my match by match predictions for Sunday’s big show.

Pre-Show: Enzo and Cass Vs Gallows and Anderson

Finally, the match we’ve all been waiting to see. With both teams having no direction post-WrestleMania, they will go head to head »

[[tmz:video id="0_cb0kmupm"]] Shane McMahon vs. Stipe Miocic??  Maybe ...  Wrestling legends Dreamer and Bully Ray Dudley tell TMZ Sports ... their friend Shane is a legit athlete and would be seriously competitive in the Ufc.  The hosts of "House of Hardcore" say Shane is a talented wrestler and fearless -- two qualities they believe would translate very well into the Octagon.  Shane reportedly weighs 235 -- so he would likely fight as a heavyweight against guys like Stipe, Cain Velasquez and Mark Hunt. »
