7 Current Stars Who Would Thrive Without WWE

The WWE roster is full of talented people who can do more than just wrestle, talk and act on sports entertainment shows. They are skilled performers who can do other things like we have seen so many others in the past.

The Rock is a bigger star as an actor then he was as a wrestler. Now he’s the biggest box office attraction in the world. He may only have a few wrestling matches left in his career (perhaps just one more), yet he’s a part of the WWE family and the company loves to remind us of his success. They’re proud. They should be.

Batista wasn’t somebody that most of us thought would be a big time actor, but after his breakout role in Guardians of the Galaxy he landed a role in the new James Bond film Spectre as well, so he

This year’s list includes 16 wrestlers and personalities who were let go this past year and including the huge surprises of David Hart Smith and Chris Masters being let go when many felt like they could have been SuperStars for years. Finlay, Chavo Guerrero and John Morrison obviously will also be missed having been great servants for the company over the past decade.

What Should WWE Network’s New Show Be Called?

In keeping with the recent trend of allowing the WWE Universe choose the names of the shows that will appear on the WWE Network in 2012, WWE have more recently asked fans to choose a name for an interactive live studio show. The show will include interviews, phone-ins, guest stars including superstars and Raw/Smackdown!/PPV analysis which is something that only happens on at the minute during and after a PPV.

It seems as though WWE is getting fully behind this social networking/interactive era as has recently started posting articles containing tweets by fans from the previous nights show. This new show on the WWE Network will most probably be similar “Byte This” which was hosted by Todd Grisham during 2004-06 where fans could phone in and talk about WWE and sometimes to superstars.

The choices for the name of this show are:

WWE Smackdown Review 5/08/11 – Christian Lands Pinfall Blow To Randy Orton

The Big News: Christian gets the better off Randy Orton in tag team action whilst Sheamus continues to antagonise Mark Henry.

Show began with a video recap of Mark Henry’s recent destruction before changing tone to highlight Sheamus standing up to him from last week. The question asked was whether or not Henry had finally met his match.

Match: Sheamus defeated Khali via pinfall

Before the match it was confirmed by the announcers that Sheamus will meet Mark Henry at Summerslam. As such this clash with the 7ft plus Indian was very much designed to put the Dubliner over as a big threat to Mark Henry’s dominance.

It was actually a surprisingly decent affair considering just how clumsy and incompetent Khali is inside the squared circle. Khali got on top early with various clotheslines and big slaps before Sheamus powered back by trapping his opponent in the ropes

DVD Review: WWE Survivor Series 2010

Despite being killed off as a series when Chairman Vince McMahon announced that WWE would drop the Survivor Series name and rebrand the event in last February, November saw the explosive return of the PPV spectacular, and that show is now available to buy on DVD and Blu-ray.

With a card boasting the collected talents of Kane, Randy Orton, Edge, Rey Mysterio, Big Show and Alberto Del Rio, the star quality is certainly there, but the question is: how does an event cope with being so cruelly undermined by the man pulling the power strings?

This year’s event was undoubtedly headlined, both in billing and in intrigue by the face-off between Randy Orton and former Nexus leader, and one of few resident Brits on the WWE rosta, Wade Barrett, with the added interest of the outcome supposedly deciding John Cena’s fate as a WWE employee.
