Gene Simmons, WWE Teaming for Horror Movies

26 March 2015 6:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

WWE Studios has formed a partnership with Gene Simmons to launch label Erebus Pictures to finance and produce movies.

The alliance is launching with a three-picture co-production deal starting with”Temple,” originally acquired and developed by WWE Studios.

The moniker Erebus is taken from the Greek God “representing the personification of darkness.” It will sell worldwide rights on all titles and use WWE’s TV shows, including “Monday Night Raw” and “SmackDown,” along with digital, social media and the WWE Network, to market its titles.

“The horror genre continues to fascinate me as it proves to be endlessly thrilling and engaging for audiences,” said Simmons, who has been in rock group Kiss for four decades.

“Horror films fall into a genre that thrives on genuine passion, and I believe this partnership truly capitalizes on that sentiment and supports our vision,” said Michael Luisi, president of WWE Studios.

Brock Lesnar Re-Signs With WWE

24 March 2015 4:18 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has re-signed with WWE, agreeing to a “multi-year contract” that replaces his current deal that was due to expire this WrestleMania season.

Lesnar revealed the news in an interview with Michelle Beadle on Espn’s SportsCenter and it was soon confirmed on WWE.com.

Triple H then revealed on Twitter that it’s longer than a one-year extension…

.@BrockLesnar is a global attraction. Happy to have him re-sign a multi-year contract with @WWE. @espn @MichelleDBeadle

— Triple H (@TripleH) March 24, 2015

The former Ufc fighter was at one point hotly tipped to return to Mma when his WWE expired and when he walked out on an episode of WWE Raw shortly before he was due to appear some weeks ago, he certainly looked like he was readying for a future elsewhere.

But in recent days, talk of WWE having the upper hand in negotiations (they clearly »

WWE Smackdown Spoilers (March 26th)

24 March 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Following last night’s peculiar and polarising conclusion to Monday Night Raw, WWE taped a few live segments for Smackdown this week, with the rest of the two hours likely to be dedicated to promotional videos and pre-taped interviews, as WWE moves production into Levi’s stadium and Fan Axxess.

Unfortunately for WWE, fans in the Staples Center were apparently confused as to the schedule of the night, as many left the building following the Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns scene in the ring. Jerry Lawler did switch places at the announcers desk and received a pop but a depleted and weary crowd was described as ‘dead’ for the events after that.

Building up to the Wrestlemania pre-show’s Fatal 4 Way Tag Title match, one half of each team competed in a standard 4 Corners match as Jimmy Uso picked up a win over Cesaro, Big E and Fernando in your regular hype match. »

6 Ups And 7 Downs From Last Night’s WWE Raw (March 23rd)

24 March 2015 2:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Paul Heyman probably said it best during the main event “confrontation” during Monday Night Raw: If fans aren’t already talked into subscribing to the WWE Network to watch WrestleMania, then there really isn’t anything else that can be done to convince them. Sure, Cm Punk could re-sign, or WWE brass could wake up from their slumber and substitute Daniel Bryan into the main event in place of Roman Reigns, but we’re talking in the realm of possibility here.

So went WWE’s go-home Raw before WrestleMania, with a hard sell for the nine matches on the card (including pre-show) in full force. The problem is, is this a card that anyone really wants to see? There are several matches that could be highly entertaining, and if they had been built properly, anticipation would be high right now.

But WWE in 2015 seems to have trouble »

What Happened After Last Night’s WWE Raw Went Off The Air? (March 16)

17 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

At the close of WWE Monday Night Raw from Des Moines, Iowa Sting made only his fourth in-ring appearance for WWE when he aided Randy Orton in battling away the entire Authority in the ring. WWE immediately advertised an exclusive interview with Orton & Sting.

Orton said very little, shaking Sting’s hand before giving him the spotlight he deserved. Sting’s was equally brief, declaring how proud he was to finally be in a WWE ring after 14 years. An excited Sting said it felt “smoking good” to be there and that he would take Triple H down at Wrestlemania before leaving to a big pop from the crowd.

The dark match after Sting’s interview featured John Cena & Roman Reigns as a team against Rusev & Seth Rollins.

In what was your typical dark tag match, Rusev and Rollins worked over Cena for a while, including Cena being held »

5 Ups And 7 Downs From Last Night’s WWE Raw (March 16th)

17 March 2015 4:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The picture for WrestleMania came a little more into focus Monday night, but it unfortunately still looks more like a cobbled-together collage than a work of art. Raw centered on adding a major one-on-one match that could be a show-stealer, but as with much of everything that has been rolled out this WrestleMania season, the execution left a lot to be desired.

It really is disappointing at times to see good ideas and premises develop, only to watch WWE shoot itself in the foot. Paul Heyman can’t run out there every segment and put over every competitor, though that would be the surefire way to ensure a strong build across the board. There just isn’t the firepower there, save for a few exceptions, to drive a competitive narrative.

Monday Night Raw saw Randy Orton and Seth Rollins spend much of the show talking and playing a transparent game of misdirection. »

Sting Expected To Be On WWE Raw Tonight

16 March 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Sting is set to appear live on Monday night Raw tonight in Des Moines, Iowa according to a report from PWInsider. He hasn’t been advertised for the show, but with the news leaking out on Monday morning it’s something that WWE probably likes because it might get the internet wrestling community a little more excited about tonight’s Raw.

The build up for Sting’s WrestleMania match against Triple H has been very average. The last time he appeared on WWE TV in person was at the Fastlane PPV on February 22 and he didn’t say a word. He just pointed at the WrestleMania sign, which led to Triple H agreeing to face him at WrestleMania. Over the past few weeks, with no Sting in sight WWE has been using the likes of Ric Flair and Booker T talk about how great Sting is as a »

10 Best WWE References In Rap Music

instagram

Wiz Khalifa being a guest on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw is only the latest in a long line of the wrestling world and the rap world coming together. There have been rap songs used as entrance themes, rappers remixing current themes, wrestlers using rapper gimmicks and so on.

It’s a common connection if you really stop and think about it. Rap is a world full of braggadocio, with artists constantly talking about how tough they are, how much money they have, how many women they can sleep with and how good they are at their craft. At its very core, pro wrestling is much of the same. Listen to a Ric Flair promo and hear how much he loves to talk about his money and the women he’s been with.

A popular thing in rap songs is to name drop wrestlers, wrestling moves »

10 Ways WWE Have Shot Themselves In The Foot At WrestleMania 31

5 March 2015 12:43 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE are on the Road to WrestleMania, which by all accounts should be their most exciting and creatively rewarding time, as year’s worth of stories pay off and they get ready to begin anew on the now infamous Night-After-Mania Raw. However, due to a number of the company’s own missteps, mistakes and cover-ups, interest in the shows are waning, ratings are down and fans are stopping watching all-together.

It seems like every week there’s another fire that WWE needs to scramble to put out, as fans begin to feel more confident in sharing their voice and their displeasure. WWE have always fostered an attitude among their fans that what they say can make a difference, and now that philosophy has come back to bite Vince McMcMahon and his company in a major way.

On top of that, Monday Night Raw has recently started to be »

Jon Stewart Trashes CNN for Star of David Wipe: ‘Are You Kidding Me? That Actually Happened’ (Video)

Yes, the big political news on Tuesday was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s congressional address — but Jon Stewart found offensive nuance within CNN’s graphics department that took slight precedent on Comedy Central’s “Daily Show.” While debating President Obama’s plan to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran, CNN used the Star of David as its wipe transition, going from a taped segment back to live coverage. Stewart called the effect “patronizing.” Also Read: Jon Stewart Delivers a Low Blow to Seth Rollins on WWE’s ‘Monday Night Raw’ (Video) “Are you kidding me?” he asked rhetorically. “That actually happened on CNN. »

Watch Jon Stewart Knee Seth Rollins in the Nuts on WWE Raw

3 March 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Guess Jon Stewart has found something to do after he leaves The Daily Show. The host made his debut on WWE Raw, responding to a feud with wrestler Seth Rollins that started when Rollins claimed he could host The Daily Show better than Stewart. After that, Stewart responded, and then Rollins even crashed the Moment of Zen. But where better to settle this war than in the ring? Stewart can certainly pull of the dramatics. Wrestling is hilarious!  »

10 Celebs That Gatecrashed WCW

3 March 2015 12:28 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

With talk-show host Jon Stewart’s gate-crashing appearance on the most recent edition of Monday Night Raw, it cements another one of the bizarre similarities between WWE in the past decade and World Championship Wrestling. The comparison? Both promotions attempted to form unique alliances with mainstream celebrities to draw ratings and new eyes.

However, for as bad as WWE may appear on occasion, it’s not as bad as WCW, whose dependence on funk legends, rock legends, rap legends, non-human film stars, TV celebrities and yeah, hall-of-fame NBA power forwards in many ways closed the same doors they opened with celebrity co-signs.

Though possibly leading to some not-so-amazing moments, taking a look back at WCW’s run of booking mainstream celebrities should certainly prove to lend itself to remembering some less-than-spectacular moments (and also some absolutely hilarious ones, too). In moderation, celebrities certainly accentuate the star-power of performers »

Jon Stewart Confronts WWE Star Seth Rollins on Monday Night Raw, Kicks Him Where It Hurts—Watch Now!

Jon Stewart and WWE star Seth Rollins' rivalry came to a head last night on Monday Night Raw. It started a few weeks back when Rollins said he could do anything he wanted in the future, including taking over as host of The Daily Show! Stewart warned the athlete he'd "just stepped in a world of hurt," saying, "This is the biggest mistake you've ever made, coming after The Daily Show!" Then last week, the political humorist was in for a bit of a surprise when Rollins showed up on the set of The Daily Show and challenged him to a fight on Monday Night Raw at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Apparently, The Daily Show was the only thing keeping Jon Stewart stable. Now that he's retiring, he seems to have lost his mind a little bit. It all started a few weeks ago when WWE wrestler Seth Rollins bragged that he could take over The Daily Show from Jon Stewart and make it "actually watchable." Stewart, having nothing to lose at this point, responded to Rollins, telling him, "You just stepped in a world of hurt, my friend." Rollins upped the ante by crashing The Daily Show's trademark "Moment of Zen" segment, first by video, and then in the studio … with a headlock. »
