10 Best WWE Shows That Don’t Exist Anymore

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

YouTube

Nowadays, World Wrestling Entertainment run a lot of weekly programming. Monday Night Raw, Nxt, Main Event, Superstars and Smackdown regularly complete the weekly lineup. For the creative team, there’s a lot of hours to fill, even more when considering that Raw alone is 3 hours. The WWE Network has only added to the amount of content the company are expected to provide.

There was a time when things seemed more simple. Syndicated programming was something the then-World Wrestling Federation provided heavily, even tailoring shows for international markets. This article aims to look at 10 examples of broadcasts WWE don’t run anymore, perhaps also explaining why these shows simply disappeared without a trace.

Some examples ran for many years, becoming staples of federation programming. These shows are fondly remembered by those who watched them, and are much-missed aspects of wrestling television. Others only had a brief time in the spotlight. »

11 Shocking WWE Raw Moments You Never Saw Coming

31 August 2015 1:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE Raw is at its very best when its shocking and unpredictable. All too often the show is formulaic, but watching it every week is worth it for those rare occasions when something unexpected happens. That’s when magic occurs for the viewer, as if they’re back watching pro wrestling for the very first time.

Booking these sort of moments that “fans never saw coming” is increasingly difficult for Vince McMahon. That’s the challenge WWE faces in the modern world, with the internet and technology making surprises more and more difficult. Say for an example a wrestler is being flown in for a shock return, you can guarantee he’ll have had hundreds of camera phones snapping him in the airport. Within seconds, that’s all over the internet.

The loss of magic could be a reason for Raw’s declining television ratings. Fans more often »

WWE Announces Team Pcb “Beat The Clock” Challenge For Raw

30 August 2015 12:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

It was announced on WWE’s Facebook page that on tomorrow night’s WWE Raw there will be the first ever “Beat The Clock” challenge for the Divas.

It will be a competition between Team Pcb members Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch to see who can win their matches on Raw in the fastest time in order to determine who gets a Divas Title match against Nikki Bella at Night of Champions on September 20.

A “Beat The Clock” challenge has been used many times in the past to determine a top contender for a male title, but this is the first time for the Divas.

You remember the Divas Title right? It’s the title that WWE has basically ignored for the last two months as this “Divas Revolution” took over the divas division and they stopped having title matches even though Nikki has bragged about the length of her title reign repeatedly. »

7 Things WWE Needs From Seth Rollins vs. Sting

28 August 2015 7:24 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

SummerSlam 2015 should’ve been a hard show to follow. While it’s a valid debate about just how happy WWE sent home fans in the wake of the four hour event, it did live up to the grandeur that was promised. There were celebrity appearances, major matchups, and even Espn coverage. WWE needed something big to keep their momentum going stong.

WWE found that ‘something big’ in the form of a surprise Sting appearance and challenge against Seth Rollins on Monday Night Raw. Due to the ruining of Seth Rollins’ statue unveiling and a brief altercation that was dominated by the former WCW standout, the main event of Night of Champions is now set.

Seth Rollins will defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Sting at the big event in Houston next month. That match is already the source of much buzz among wrestling fans. WWE can capitalize »

Weekly Ratings: ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’ ‘America’s Got Talent’ Set the Pace

26 August 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It may be the dog days of summer, but AMC was barking loudly last week with the record-setting premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead.”

The prequel to “The Walking Dead” became the top-rated cable premiere of all time in both adults 18-49 (4.9 rating) and total viewers (10.31 million), according to Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates — topping the scores for every episode from the first two seasons of the original zombie series, which bowed in 2010.

In the demo, Sunday’s premiere rating breaks the previous cable high set in February by AMC’s debut of “Better Call Saul” (3.5 rating, airing behind “Walking Dead”). And in total viewers, “Fear the Walking Dead” leap-frogs the 2008 premiere of TNT’s “Raising the Bar,” which drew 7.7 million viewers.

“Fear” even fares well relative to the top broadcast premieres of late. The 4.9 rating is more than 1 point above this past season’s top hourlong premieres (“How »

WWE Raw Viewership Disappointingly Drops After SummerSlam

26 August 2015 2:35 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

WWE Raw did 3.72 million viewers the night after SummerSlam, down from last week’s 3.78 million viewers. The week before that, viewership had been 3.84 million viewers.

WWE will be mightily disappointed with the decline. It is only a slight drop off, but the expectation had been for a huge rise in viewers after the shock ending of the SummerSlam special on Sunday. The lure of getting answers from Undertaker and Brock Lesnar ended up doing nothing for the numbers. The show was only just above the summer average.

The three hours were:

– 8 p.m. 3.61 million viewers

– 9 p.m. 3.79 million viewers

– 10 p.m. 3.76 million viewers

Unadvertised returns of Sting, Ric Flair, and The Dudley Boyz made no difference.

The question WWE have to ask themselves, is why didn’t the numbers improve? It must be frustrating, because playing the Lesnar Undertaker angle they must have thought that it was a bankable ratings lure. »

Seriously, How Often Do You Get to See Jon Stewart Body Slammed on WWE?

25 August 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After spending 16 years sitting behind a desk grilling politicians and changing politics, was Jon Stewart pining for another job?  Could it be that Stewart’s life long dream was to be a pro wrestler? The former host of “The Daily Show” appeared on “Monday Night Raw,” a day after hosting WWE’s SummerSlam.   Oddly enough at SummerSlam he smashed 15-time WWE Champion John Cena with a metal chair to the stomach.   But Daly, the gentleman, returns to speak with Cena. Actually, he decided to immerse himself fully into a story line that involved not only Cena, but wrestling legend Rick Flair as well.  Oh and by the way, he got body slammed too.  Stewart addressed a rowdy crowd in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and their “children who wanted to know who the little old mean man was” that was sharply divided over his part in the outcome of the previous night’s winner-takes-all… »

How Jon Stewart and Stephen Amell Might Teach You To Love Professional Wrestling

25 August 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last night, Jon Stewart — beloved liberal media icon — appeared for the first time on cable television since leaving behind the desk of "The Daily Show" three weeks ago. But he wasn't on a major news outlet, discussing issues of the day. Instead, he was on "Monday Night Raw," being confronted by professional wrestler/"Trainwreck" scene-stealer John Cena about the fact that the day before, during the WWE PPV event "SummerSlam," Stewart had run out in the middle of Cena's wrestling match and hit John Cena with a chair, thus sabotaging Cena's match and allowing the other guy to win.  Read More: Review: 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' Made Jon Stewart Acknowledge Our Thanks Cena felt Stewart (who was officially at SummerSlam to serve as host) had transgressed, and so Cena sought justice in the form of what Cena refers to as an "attitude adjustment" — known to the »

Review: WWE Monday Night War Vol.1 - Shots Fired

25 August 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

In the half century that WWE has been around, there have been many defining moments, many significant events, and many controversies, but by far the most memorable chapter in the company’s history is what became known as the Monday Night War.

Officially beginning on 4th September 1995 when WWE’s rival wrestling company WCW aired the first episode of Monday Nitro in direct competition with Vince McMahon’s established flagship show Monday Night Raw, the war lasted for five and a half years until McMahon bought WCW in March 2001, bringing a definitive conclusion to the most fascinating era in wrestling history.

Recognising that such a momentous period of history could never be done justice in a single documentary, WWE produced a twenty part series for the WWE Network examining the war in minute detail, and have now released the first ten episodes in this superb collection called The Monday Night War Vol. »

Jon Stewart Got an ‘Attitude Adjustment,’ a.k.a. Wrecked, by WWE’s John Cena

24 August 2015 9:03 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As the host of WWE's SummerSlam event, Jon Stewart was making retirement look like a good time. Notably, he saw the Undertaker, got some autographs, turned heel against John Cena (bad Jon, bad), and patched things up with Seth Rollins. But tonight, on Monday Night Raw, Stewart made retirement look like a painful time, as Cena promptly exacted his revenge. (Jon, are you okay? We hope you feel better soon!) »

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read if you haven’t watched “Monday Night Raw.”) After his chair-smashing appearance at WWE SummerSlam Sunday, Jon Stewart returned to the ring for “Monday Night Raw.” The former “Daily Show” host learned the hard way that every action has a reaction when WWE Superstar John Cena delivered a painful payback for smashing him with a steel chair the night before, by body slamming Stewart.

Jon Stewart's decision to break bad has had some very painful consequences. After his sneak chair attack on John Cena during Sunday's WWE SummerSlam, the former Daily Show host, and newest heel in wrestling, attempted to explain his mendaciousness on Monday Night Raw.

Steve Austin’s Next WWE Network Podcast With Edge & Christian

24 August 2015 2:07 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

It was announced during SummerSlam that Steve Austin’s “Stone Cold Podcast” will return to WWE Network on Monday September 7, immediately following that night’s WWE Raw in Baltimore.

Earlier this year, WWE issued a press release saying there would be Stone Cold Podcast episodes with the likes of Hulk Hogan, Sting and The Undertaker. The Hogan one was supposed to happen a few weeks ago, but he was replaced by Paige due to WWE distancing themselves from the Hulkster due to his racist comments. There’s no word on when or if those podcasts with Sting and Undertaker may take place.

Austin, Edge and Christian are good friends that go back to the Attitude Era

it will be awesome to hear Edge & Christian talk about stuff from when they were wrestling, as well as topics related to the current product. Austin and Edge retired before »

The Undertaker Not At WWE Raw Tonight

24 August 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

This week’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw takes place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, which is where the Nxt Takeover and SummerSlam events took place. It’s the third straight sellout of the building and it should be another raucous crowd on hand.

According to a report from PWInsider, The Undertaker won’t be there. Apparently he was scheduled to at least be at Raw backstage, but he chose to fly home to Texas. His health is said to be fine, despite some reports suggesting he was hurt.

Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are scheduled to be on Raw. Heyman will likely fire off an angry promo about the referee Charles Robinson not seeing when Undertaker tapped out to Lesnar during their SummerSlam main event match.

Watch 'Arrow' Defeat Stardust at WWE SummerSlam 2015

24 August 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Arrow star Stephen Amell, an unabashed fan of the WWE, would be getting in the ring at WWE SummerSlam 2015. Stephen Amell teamed up with WWE Superstar Neville (a.k.a. Ben Satterly) for a tag-team match with the actor's rival Stardust and Barrett at the pay-per-view event, a match that didn't disappoint. If you didn't watch WWE SummerSlam 2015 last night, there will be Spoilers for the event, so read on at your own risk.

As expected, Stephen Amell and Neville emerged victorious over Stardust and Barrett, but many fans probably weren't expecting the actor to perform so well in the squared circle. After the match, WWE released a video from the SummerSlam match's final moments, where Stephen Amell flung himself off the top rope to take out both of his opponents outside of the ring. He then threw Barrett back into the ring, »

Arrow's Stephen Amell has had a weird road to WWE's SummerSlam. After appearing on WWE Raw a few weeks ago, Amell settled his "feud" with Stardust during the huge show on Sunday.

Jon Stewart Hosts WWE SummerSlam, Smashes John Cena With Chair (Video)

24 August 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It didn’t take long for Jon Stewart to resume television hosting duties following his “Daily Show” exit.

The comedian, sporting a scruffy white beard, hosted WWE’s SummerSlam on Sunday at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

“You know, I’ve spent the past 16 years talking about politics,” he said in his opening remarks at the pay-per-view event in New York City. “It’s nice to be back in reality. Let me tell you the difference between politics and what you’re going to see tonight: The WWE performers you will see tonight, they respect their audience.”

Stewart welcomed the Undertaker, the Miz, the Bella Twins, the WWE Divas, Sheamus and Brock Lesnar during his appearance, in addition to getting physical with another John. Stewart interfered in a fight between Seth Rollins and John Cena, smashing a closed metal folding chair into John Cena’s gut in a sneak attack, thereby »
