Leaked WWE Raw Script Lists Cm Punk As “Injured” With Return ‘To Be Determined’

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

WWE.com

A leaked WWE Raw script lists Cm Punk as a miscellaneous WWE star who is out injured, with his return date Tbd (to be determined).

The full WWE script leaked from the April 14th Raw is available in full here and the first page below (with Punk’s listing as injured in the left hand bottom corner, under miscellaneous)

The inclusion of Cm Punk on the script and description of him out injured is interesting. Does this suggest Punk’s apparent exit in January was a work? Some will read it that way, but WWE could have just featured him on the script in this capacity because he’s under contract and they had to put him somewhere. Still, they could have just as easily edited him out of the script, including him as injured with a Tbd comeback is sure to raise some speculation. This script was »

WWE Raw 4/14/2014 Review: 5 Things We Learned

15 April 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

We are officially just over one week removed from the above average broadcast of Wrestlemania XXX, and now things begin to take shape for the next WWE pay per view, Extreme Rules. With one match already officially on the card, a rematch from Wrestlemania XXX featuring Bray Wyatt and John Cena, the coming weeks will look to tighten up the event’s main bouts while further moving the story lines along.

And with that said, this weeks WWE Raw program was again a mixed bag, with nothing too outstanding or terribly awful. It was a solid show, with several significant developments, but also a few steps taken back with some rather silly segments. All in all, though, it was a decent follow up to the very hot Raw following Wrestlemania XXX last week, though this weeks crowd was less than stellar, clearly not holding up their end of the total wrestling experience bargain. »

Monday’s WWE Raw Will Be Ultimate Warrior Tribute Show

11 April 2014 5:36 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The April 14th Raw this coming Monday from Birmingham, Alabama will be a tribute show for Ultimate Warrior, reports f4wonline.

The news will be welcomed by WWE fans who are still reeling from Warrior’s sudden death aged 54 this past Tuesday. Coming just days after his Hall of Fame induction and triumphant Raw return promo, his death appears to have really hit the wrestling community in a way no wrestler death has for many years now.

WWE’s response reflects this, they rarely book Raw tribute shows, although manager Paul Bearer’s passing was granted a special in 2013. Before that you are going back as far as the mis-judged Benoit Memorial Raw back in 2007 before the true details of his death were revealed.

By booking a tribute show it will give the WWE performers a chance to pay their public respects. Expect various interviews and segments talking about Warrior. »

WWE Raw Draws Huge Rating The Night After WrestleMania 30

9 April 2014 2:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

This week’s WWE Raw episode has garnered the highest wrestling TV viewers since July 2012.

Coming the night after WrestleMania 30, the show featured new WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in prominent segments in addition to an array of newer stars and fresh storylines. This is a great sign for WWE that the direction they are going with Bryan is going to lead to increased business. The show averaged 5.14 million viewers, up from 4.63 the previous week. The hourly breakdown was as follows:

Hour One: 5.31 million viewers

Hour Two: 5.09 million viewers

Hour Three: 5.03 million viewers

As you can see, the three hours held up better than usual, there was no major drop-off and these numbers will be received hugely well within WWE. The final rating came in at a 3.7, meaning WWE has had its most successful Raw since the 1,000th special episode on July 23rd 2012. Having done better than any rating »

The Ultimate Warrior Dead At 54

8 April 2014 10:59 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

 

WWE.com

In one of wrestling’s biggest tragedies in recent memory, the death of The Ultimate Warrior has been confirmed, just days after his emotional Hall of Fame induction.

TMZ reports that Warrior, who was born Jim Hellwig, collapsed outside his Arizona Hotel at 5:50pm on April 8th while walking to the car with his wife. He was then rushed to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead.

He was only 54 years-old and had the night before made his return to WWE Monday Night Raw for an in-ring promo. His last previous appearance on WWE’s flagship program was way back in 1996.

As one of the biggest stars of the 90s, The Ultimate Warrior’s passing is likely to be covered mainstream throughout the day and more information is likely to come sporadically available. Nothing else is currently known than the above and it doesn’t seem wise to speculate. »

WWE.com

There are times, even in professional wrestling, where everything becomes transcendent, even if for only one night. The annual Raw broadcast following Wrestlemania in recent years has become on of those situations – an experience where things go beyond the weekly pro wrestling norm and evolve into something more. And in New Orleans this week, following Wrestlemania XXX, there was no exception – the Raw broadcast again delivered a transcendent experience.

This is the night reserved for tying up loose ends from the previous evenings Wrestlemania broadcast, and launching the WWE’s new year in grand fashion. We are given closure on storylines, introductions to new characters, and a few surprises along the way. The live crowd is always ready to play ball as well, and it makes for a fantastic, memorable experience each time this night arrives, especially in the more recent years.

And 2014 was no exception. The Raw »

Ratings: AMC, Own, TLC Among Notable Cable Gainers in 2014

3 April 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The quarterly ratings fortunes of cable networks often ride on a single show, and that was the case for the likes of AMC, A&E and Own during the first three months of the year.

AMC surged behind record ratings for “The Walking Dead,” and Own had its best showing to date thanks in large part to Tyler Perry soap “The Haves and the Have Nots.” On the other hand, the decline of “Duck Dynasty,” though still a top program, produced noticeable declines for A&E.

Overall according to Nielsen primetime estimates for the quarter (Dec. 30, 2013 through March 30, 2014), TBS prevailed in the key demos of adults 18-49, 25-54 and 18-34 but was down about 10% from last year; it had won a year ago in 18-49 and 18-34. The cable home to repeats of “The Big Bang Theory” also aired three of the quarter’s top 10 original cable comedies, led by »

WWE Raw 3/31/14 Review: 5 Things We Learned

1 April 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

And so now we are less than one week away from the 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania. In the past 30 years, however, one could argue that the entire card for the yearly Showcase has never felt as insignificant as it does this year. And one would think that with the 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania upon us this year, the return of The Immortal Hulk Hogan, and The Undertaker’s Streak still holding true and so on, that this event would feel monumental…momentous….special. But it doesn’t.

For this WWE fan, it feels like the WWE has thrown all they’ve got against the wall, and whatever would find a way to stick is what they decided to go with.

With the final Raw broadcast prior to the 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania finally in the books, we are now headed into the downward spiral towards this Sunday’s annual Grandaddy Of Them All. »

'WWE Raw' March 31 recap: Daniel Bryan reigns going into 'Wrestlemania 30'

31 March 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Previously on: No Daniel Bryan, and Undertaker continued to make Brock Lesnar look weak. At least the Bray Wyatt and John Cena match still looks like a standout.

The big news: It's the final "WWE Raw" before "Wrestlemania 30" and, fittingly, it begins with The Undertaker. He walks to the ring to call out Brock Lesnar, who makes his way out with Paul Heyman. Heyman does the talking but eventually Lesnar slowly makes his way to the ring. Finally, Brock gets in some much-needed offense on Undertaker.

The dead man is left laying in the ring, hurt. This is the aggression Lesnar has needed to show to get fans thinking he has a shot.

Meanwhile, Bray Wyatt drove his feud with John Cena forward even more with another wonderful promo. You'll be hard-pressed to find anyone in WWE as engaging on the microphone as the leader of the Wyatt Family. However, »

WWE: 5 Superstars Who Could Legitimately The Undertaker’s Streak

26 March 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

YouTube

The Streak. When wrestling fans here those two words, only one thing comes to mind, The Undertaker’s 21-0 record at WrestleMania. The Undertaker’s match at the biggest pay-per-view of the year seemingly over shadows any championship match that is on the card that night. In recent years, it has become our only chance to see The Phenom compete in a match, and all of us wait anxiously for his return during WWE’s road to WrestleMania. Rumors begin swirling over who he may face, and if they stand a chance on ending the streak.

To understand just how incredible this streak is, Paul Heyman put it into perspective on WWE Raw two weeks ago. Heyman, during his promo, brought up the greats in wrestling history, and how they have not gotten anywhere close to Taker’s streak. Shawn Michaels, Mr. WrestleMania, has never won two in a row at the big event, »

WWE Raw 3/24/2014 Review: 5 Things We Learned

25 March 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

We are officially less than two weeks away from the 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania. And while Wrestlemania XXX is showing some signs of great potential, it still feels like a work in progress. And to that end, let’s hope the WWE brass do not try and throw it all together at the last minute. But oh wait, they kind of already are.

With that said, things for the Grandaddy Of Them All are starting to catch fire. This week was much more of the same “holding pattern” type of drama that we have had recently, and honestly, the needle didn’t move much by the show’s end.

We still have about 2 weeks to get excited – and the WWE has the same amount of time to put together a 30th anniversary show that is worthy of the moniker The Showcase of the Immortals. Here are 5 things we learned from »

'WWE Raw' March 24 recap: The Undertaker brings Brock Lesnar druids and a coffin

24 March 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Previously on: The big advancement toward "Wrestlemania" was the masterful attack of Daniel Bryan by Triple H. It was truly one of the best moments of buildup for the big show we've seen yet. There wasn't a ton else to note last week. The Shield are babyfaces now, though. So it looks like their breakup is on the backburner. It's probably a good idea, that unit is just to good to separate.

The big news: After now appearing on "WWE Raw" last week, The Undertaker was in the house. It was the first time this year he brought out the old druid and coffin gimmick the character is known for. It all followed Heyman and Lesnar in the ring, talking about how Undertaker's days were numbered.

Unfortunately, Taker did exactly what he's already done: Beat down Lesnar. Everyone knows Brock is going to lose at "Wrestlemania," but WWE needs »

WWE: Scott Hall Confirmed As Next Inductee [Image]

24 March 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Razor_Ramon_IC_Champ.jpg

It’s been rumored for months now and we reported about it a couple of weeks ago, but it appears to be official now that Scott Hall aka Razor Ramon will be the next inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2014. The announcement is expected on WWE Monday Night Raw from Brooklyn tonight, though the reveal has been confirmed early by the following newspaper advert;

A report from PWInsider suggests that the current plan is for members of The Kliq to induct Hall. That infamous group included Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman (X-Pac). No word if all of them will present Hall or if it will be just one of them.  If it was one of them, Nash appears to be the most likely since he two formed the Outsiders together. However, if all »

WWE Raw Preview: Hogan, Arnie, Lesnar And Undertaker To Appear Tonight

24 March 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

YouTube

With less than a fortnight to go until WrestleMania 30, WWE is set to fire the big guns on Monday Night Raw tonight.

In addition to a face off between The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar, we will also have appearances from Hulk Hogan and Arnold Schwarzenegger. These four major names are all guaranteed to draw mainstream attention toward WWE as they make a push to gets fans invested in buying the WWE Network and WrestleMania 30.

Raw will come from Brooklyn, New York, traditionally a great WWE crowd. With the star names we can expect some raucous reactions from the New Yorkers. WWE’s official Raw preview is teasing an Undertaker Lesnar face off, which will perhaps see the feud escalate to some sort of blows. The company is desperate to get Lesnar over as a threat to the streak, so some sort of attack in which he hurts Undertaker would be the expected angle. »

7 Reasons WWE Needs To Bring Back The Nexus

21 March 2014 12:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

“You’re either Nexus or you’re against us,” was the motto of the original Nexus group, led by Wade Barrett. In what may have been one of the most shocking debuts on WWE Raw, eight Nxt rookies made their way to the ring on June 7th, 2010, to sabotage the main event of the night, and destroy everything in its sight.

Wade Barrett was the first to make his way down the ramp and cause a distraction during the match between WWE Champion John Cena and Cm Punk. From there we saw the seven other Nxt rookies make their way to the ring through the crowd, and over the barricade. This Nexus group would first attack Luke Gallows on the outside of the ring, followed by Cm Punk. All eight members would surround the ring, and methodically plan their attack on WWE Champion John Cena, who didn’t stand a chance. »

5 Biggest WWE Championship Changes In WrestleMania History

19 March 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Triple H made a huge announcement on Monday’s WWE Raw, which changes the outlook of the WWE Championship match at WrestleMania 30. The main event will now for absolute certainty be a triple threat match between Randy Orton, Batista and the winner of Hhh vs Bryan.

Daniel Bryan’s path to WrestleMania started last year at SummerSlam, when he won the WWE Championship, only to get attacked by Triple H and lose the title minutes later to Money In The Bank winner Randy Orton. This was followed by months of Bryan chasing the title, but coming up short due to The Authority. The fans grew tired of the booking of Daniel Bryan, and the screwy finishes by the WWE. Last week during the “Occupy Raw” segment, the WWE finally got it right, and it seems evident that the fans will get their wish. What better way to put »

WWE Raw 3/17/2014 Review: 5 Things We Learned

WWE.com

I want to be excited for Wrestlemania XXX. I want to be engaged with every program that builds towards the biggest event of the year. I want to look forward to Raw, SmackDown!, and Main Event each and every week, anticipating the next big step towards the Grandaddy of Them All. I want to be excited for Wrestlemania XXX.

But I’m just not. Not yet.

And I don’t know if I will get there, if WWE continues to put on shows like last night’s Raw broadcast. I understand that we still had 3 RAWs left as we moved into last nights show, but for the WWE to revolve the entire show around Triple H and Daniel Bryan and the Wrestlemania main event match…well, that was just odd. It doesn’t feel like there’s any real focus anywhere else on the card – case in point: »

WWE Raw: Big Show, Sheamus, Christian & More Names Announced For WrestleMania Battle Royal

18 March 2014 12:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Big_Show_Oshkosh_WI_030808.jpg

This week on Raw, WWE announced more names as participants for the WrestleMania 30 match that is honoring WWE Hall of Famer Andre the Giant with a battle royal.

The Big Show announced prior to his match on Raw that he was going to take place in the battle royal. He mentioned that throughout his career his name has been mentioned with Andre as a true giant. When he was in WCW, he was originally billed as “the son of Andre” when he used the name of The Giant until WCW thought better of it and stopped doing that. Based on his size and experience as a main event player for much of his 15 year career, Big Show has to be considered a favorite to win.

Following his win on Raw over Titus O’Neil, Sheamus announced his participation in the WrestleMania battle royal. »
