I recently wrote in relation to a review of "The Big Show" that circus movies have gone the way of the Model T. You can add to that another genre of film that used to be a Hollywood staple- the safari movies in which the hero was a great white hunter. Changing social attitudes make it unlikely we'd ever again cheer some rock-jawed leading man as he unloads some hi caliber bullets into a grazing elephant or a lazing hippo. The last word on such films was Clint Eastwood's woefully underrated (and woefully under-seen) 1990 film "White Hunter, Black Heart", which was loosely based on the hunting obsessions of director John Huston during production of "The African Queen". Nevertheless, jungle-themed adventures are still the stuff of cinematic thrills in the minds of retro movie lovers. One of the best is "Rampage", a 1963 opus directed by Phil Karlson »

At Sunday’s WWE live event in Washington, D.C., an announcement was made that the city’s Verizon Center will host 2016’s Battleground Pay-Per-View on July 24. This will mark the first PPV event held in the United States’ capital in more than five years.
Battleground is a recent addition to the company’s annual schedule, but the event has already garnered a reputation as consistently being one of the worst of the year. At the inaugural show in 2013, Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan battled for the vacant WWE Championship, but the match was declared a no contest after The Big Show interfered and a new champion was not crowned.
The 2014 iteration of the show saw a highly anticipated Seth Rollins versus Dean Ambrose match cancelled when Ambrose was ejected from the arena for attacking Rollins backstage.

One of the most beloved superstars of the late 1980s and early 1990s, Traylor first joined the company in 1988. A real-life ex-prison guard, Traylor was given the character of “The Big Boss Man” – a corrupt prison guard/law enforcement agent. He was a top heel for WWE until 1990, when he turned face and had well-remembered feuds with Mr. Perfect, The Mountie, and Nailz. He left the company in 1993, and after a brief tenure in All Japan Pro Wrestling, debuted in 1993. First called “The Boss,” Traylor subsequently took the names “The Guardian Angel” and “Big Bubba Rogers” following complaints from WWE.
