Brock Lesnar Confirmed For WWE Raw Tonight

21 July 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The rumor has existed for months and it is now confirmed: Brock Lesnar is in Miami for tonight’s edition of Monday Night Raw. The news has been confirmed by PWInsider and backs up the previous news items about Brock Lesnar challenging John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam on August 17 in Los Angeles.

While Lesnar is expected to be on Raw with Paul Heyman by his side, John Cena wont be there. As we reported last week, Cena is headed to New York City to film scenes for the Judd Apatow film Trainwreck in New York City. Cena apparently flew from Tampa (site of last night’s Battleground event) to New York City this morning. Even without Cena in the building, they can still have Lesnar challenge him for the WWE Title or have Triple H name him as the challenger and then build »

Hulk Hogan Returns To WWE Raw August 11

17 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

It was announced on Thursday that WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan will be returning to Monday Night Raw on August 11th. The news was posted on the website for the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon where Raw will take place that night. It also revealed what his role will be by saying that Hogan “is set to host what guarantees to be one hot show leading up to the SummerSlam PPV.”

Bringing Hogan back to host Raw one week before SummerSlam is a smart idea for WWE because Hogan is tremendous at getting fans excited for a show. It’s what he has always been great at even when he was a top guy in WWE.

As we have reported numerous times already, the SummerSlam main event is expected to be John Cena defending the WWE Title against Brock Lesnar. Since Lesnar is coming into the match »

Brock Lesnar Returns WWE Raw On Monday – Report

17 July 2014 2:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Brock Lesnar will return on Raw next Monday, Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports.

Current WWE plans (which obviously could change) are for Lesnar to make his comeback on the show emanating from Miami, Florida, just a day after the WWE Battleground pay per view. The episode is expected to set in motion Lesnar’s SummerSlam feud with John Cena.

In a small coincidence, the Miami venue is the same location that Lesnar made his original return back in 2012, in a famous angle where he destroyed Cena. We might see something very similar this Monday – same guys, same location, same angle.

Lesnar’s feud with Cena will be the centrepiece of WWE television over the next two months. The pair will headline SummerSlam in Los Angeles, with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship expected to be on the line. Following August we have Night Of Champions in September, which WWE will »

Bigger ‘Big Brother’ Puts CBS on Top in Weekly Demo Race for the First Time This Summer

16 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Big Brother” picked up ratings steam last week, with all three editions ranking among the frame’s top five programs in young adults as CBS finished atop the weekly rankings in demos for the first time since mid-spring.

The Eye also got contributions from firstrun dramas “Under the Dome” and “Extant,” even if the latter Halle Berry-fronted drama didn’t wow in its bow demo-wise. They were the frame’s top two scripted programs in adults 18-49 and 25-54, and “Extant” was No. 1 for the week in total viewers.

Overall, it was a very tight race in adults 18-49, according to Nielsen estimates for July 7-13, with roughly 30,000 viewers separating four networks: CBS, NBC and Univision (all at 1.1 rating/4 share) and ABC (1.0/4). With the tie, NBC was able to extend its summer streak of finishing on top in the demo every week except the two NBA Finals frames when »

7 Ways WWE Can Reinvigorate Monday Night Raw

16 July 2014 2:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE Raw has been on the air since 1993. For over twenty years, the presentation of the show has defined mainstream professional wrestling. This goes not just for the style of wrestling, but also the presentation. By being the number one wrestling company in the world, WWE gets to dictate what wrestling looks like for most people. And as technically impressive as the show still is, there are elements that rarely get overhauled, rethought, or ever really considered by fans. These issues are parts of the show that people rarely highlight, but which have became stagnant and detrimental.

These issues with the show won’t touch on the actual wrestling quality, which is arguably at a 21 year high. It also won’t touch on storylines and whether things should be more or less “real” than they currently are. The list focuses mostly on direction and consideration of historical aspects »

Why Paul Heyman Wasn’t With Cesaro On WWE Raw

15 July 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

When Cesaro took on Big E during Monday’s Raw there was no sign of Paul Heyman. Announcer Jerry Lawler said that maybe Heyman was fired while Michael Cole claimed that he saw Heyman earlier in the day, so he was sure he wasn’t fired.

Later on Raw, Heyman showed up to talk to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. With regards to their “plan B” at Battleground, Heyman said that just in case Hunter needed a full proof plan C then he’s the guy that Hunter should talk to.

According to a report from PWInsider, Heyman was moved away from Cesaro this week on Raw because Brock Lesnar is returning as soon as next Monday’s Raw after Battleground. There is some question as to whether this is the end of Heyman’s relationship with Cesaro. It might just be a temporary thing.

NBC Wins Week in Demos Behind ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ‘Night Shift’ and Fireworks

10 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The return of “Under the Dome” brought CBS closer, but NBC remained ahead in the summer demo derby last week, riding “America’s Got Talent” and, as it does every year, ruling primetime on Independence Day.

“Dome” kicked off its second season well below its huge numbers of last summer, but it still towered over all other original scripted programs for the week.

In cable, VH1′s “Hit the Floor” and TNT’s rookie “The Last Ship” were the top scripted originals in young adults, while the unscripted standouts included a pair of femme-friendly shows — Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding” and E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” — that went head to head on Sunday.

Overall, according to Nielsen estimates for June 30-July 6, NBC led in adults 18-49 with a 1.1 rating/4 share for its fifth demo triumph in seven weeks this summer — losing out »

Sting Posts Cryptic Tweet & Photo – WWE 2K15 Or Debut?

8 July 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The rumors of former WCW legend Sting going to WWE have been rampant since the new year. When his Tna deal expired it was not renewed and the reports were that he was going to WWE. For the past six months we have read about how he might go to WWE, but then he hasn’t officially signed. It’s hard to know what’s really happening.

Sting isn’t a big Twitter user, but he did two things that got people talking. He changed his profile to a dark image that had a silhouette of his face…

He also posted something on Tuesday afternoon that has the internet wrestling community talking. No letters. Just numbers.

That date is July 14, 2014, which is next Monday. While some fans might think that Sting is going to be appearing on WWE Raw from Richmond, Va it seems unlikely that it would happen now. »

10 Booking Steps WWE Must Make For Chris Jericho Vs Bray Wyatt

7 July 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Big returns are one of the best booking decisions that the WWE consistently makes. Yes, there are stars like John Cena who for the most part bleed and sweat all year long for the company, but there are popular established superstars that draw almost as big of a crowd, and automatically elevate everyone around them.

These returns are generally done for two things; to make money, and to put over future A+ players. Let’s face the facts, big returns generally mean one other constant; the superstar will leave again. That means that to get the most out of them, they need to be put into a strong feud with a budding star, in order to make sure everyone is successful at the end of the day.

Many returns were made on last Monday’s WWE Raw, none more well received than Y2J himself, Chris Jericho. Interrupting »

WWE Raw Spoiler – Bret Hart Returns Tonight

7 July 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Instagram.com

WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart is scheduled to make his WWE return on tonight’s Raw in Montreal. Hart posted the above image and caption on his official Instagram page (@brethitmanhart) over the weekend.

It is no secret that the WWE enjoys using Hart whenever they return to Montreal, the site of the famous real life Survivor Series 1997 double cross. This will be Hart’s second appearance for the WWE in Montreal since that fateful night in 1997. He last appeared at a WWE show in Montreal in September of 2012, which was also the night where Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack on the live broadcast. Hart last appeared on a televised Raw broadcast approximately seven months ago on December 9, 2013 when he presented John Cena with the “Match of the Year” Slammy Award for his main event contest with the Rock at WrestleMania 29.

Reality Shows Still Dominating the Summer Program Rankings

2 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There are a record number of scripted programs on television this summer, but young adults by and large are choosing their reality-show favorites instead.

In a week that saw the return of “Big Brother” (pictured), nine of the week’s top 10 original series telecasts in adults 18-49 were reality shows, with only HBO’s “True Blood” sneaking in. Cracking the top 20, though, were Fox’s “24: Live Another Day,” Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World” and VH1′s “Hit the Floor.”

The same-night ratings bar has been lowered again this summer for scripted programming, as viewers have ever-more options and platforms to watch programs. The top scripted newcomer remains NBC’s “The Night Shift,” which on Monday was renewed for a second season, while TNT’s “The Last Ship” is the best-looking cable rookie, declining only slightly in its second week.

Overall last week, it was a very tight race »

NBC, Univision Tie for Demo Lead in Weekly Ratings Race

25 June 2014 5:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Univision moved up to a tie with NBC for the primetime lead among young adults last week, with the former benefiting from higher circulation due to the World Cup and the latter aided by a second helping of summer standout “America’s Got Talent.”

TNT, meanwhile, got off to an encouraging start with drama “The Last Ship,” as the net ruled cable’s scripted-program rankings in key demos.

Though it aired outside of primetime, the week’s most-watched event was the World Cup match on Sunday between the United States and Portugal, which drew nearly 25 million viewers on Espn (18.2 million) and Univision (6.5 million). The final hour of the game, which concluded around 8 p.m. Et, was included in the week’s averages and helped Univision’s cause.

Overall, according to Nielsen estimates for the week of June 16-22, NBC and Univision tied in adults 18-49 with a 1.2 rating/4 share, and »

NBA Finals Help ABC Dominate Week’s Ratings Race; CBS and Fox Match All-Time Demo Lows

18 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC used three games of the NBA Finals to slam-dunk its rivals in last week’s ratings race, helping send CBS and Fox — which have struggled early this summer — to historically low numbers.

Fox has garnered modest ratings for original drama “Gang-Related,” and has already pulled alternative skeins “Riot” and “I Wanna Marry Harry” after they drew puny numbers during their short Tuesday runs.

The Eye will get back in the ratings game when it adds seven hours of summer originals starting at the end of the month, but it sagged last week — as it traditionally does at this time of year — with 21 hours of repeat programming.

NBC, meanwhile, has done pretty well with its mix of newcomers like drama “The Night Shift” and vets like “America’s Got Talent,” and also got a boost last week from the concluding game of hockey’s Stanley Cup Final.

NBA Finals, Winning Friday Lineup Lift ABC to Weekly Ratings Victory

11 June 2014 6:06 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first two games of the NBA Finals helped lift ABC to an easy primetime ratings victory in key demos last week, while HBO’s “Game of Thrones” remained the hottest entertainment series as it nears its season finale.

For the week of June 2-8, according to Nielsen estimates, ABC led in adults 18-49 with a 2.3 rating/8 share, well above runner-up NBC (1.6/6), which had won the opening summer stanza one week earlier. Univision ranked third (1.0/4), edging ahead of CBS and Fox (0.9/3). ABC also won in adults 25-54 and total viewers.

The first two games of the NBA Finals averaged a 6.0/19 in 18-49 and 14.99 million viewers overall, up 3% and 4% respectively vs. last year when the same two teams met. They were easily the week’s top primetime programs.

Among original series for ABC, Wednesday drama “Motive” was on the rise (1.1/4 in 18-49, 5.39 million viewers overall), as was “Celebrity Wife Swap” on »

WWE Raw Spoiler: Daniel Bryan To Surrender WWE Title Tonight

9 June 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan will surrender his WWE title tonight, according to SEScoops.com, who initially reported on Bryan’s neck surgery last month. The decision to strip Bryan of his title came after news broke that he wouldn’t be able to compete at the Money in the Bank event on June 29th against Kane.

Since Bryan won’t be able to defend the WWE Title against Kane, that means there will be a Money in the Bank match for the title (or titles since they still carry around two of them). We already know that Alberto Del Rio is a qualifier for it. There’s no indication on who else might be in it or how many people there will be, but it’s probably going to be at least six people. It might be seven or more too. If we had to guess »

WWE Raw Preview: Money In The Bank Qualifiers And An Injured John Cena

9 June 2014 2:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The Raw script for the 9th of June was finalised as of Sunday morning, according to the F4wonline.com.

The plan as of a couple of days ago was to feature two Money In The Bank qualifying matches on the show. Last week we witnessed Alberto Del Rio defeat Dolph Ziggler to become the first Money In The Bank participant, with just a few weeks to go, WWE still has to add at least five other names to the match.

The F4wonline site is also reporting that John Cena has sustained a nasty eye injury over the weekend, but was expected to continue working. The injury happened after Cena clashed heads with Bray Wyatt on Saturday’s house show. By Sunday morning Cena’s eye was swollen shut and looked really bad. He was due to work Sunday’s show in a limited in-ring capacity. You »

Seth Rollins Heel Turn Wasn’t In WWE Raw Script

4 June 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

This Monday’s Raw had a shocking ending as Seth Rollins turned heel on Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose in a move that ended The Shield as a group.

A new report from PWInsider notes that the Rollins turn was not written into the script that was used several days before the PPV. It could have been that WWE officials wanted to keep it off the books. It could have been something decided weeks ago or at Payback.

The script that was used at Monday’s Raw had Kane vs. John Cena in the main event position and the turn with Rollins wasn’t even hinted at.

It’s a smart move by WWE because a lot of the time these things get leaked out by people within the company and fans on the internet can learn about them, which is obviously not something WWE wants to happen. »

WWE Raw Review: 5 Things We Learned (June 2, 2014)

3 June 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

With 2014′s Payback PPV in the books, WWE now looks forward to one of its most anticipated events of the year, Money In The Bank. With a win in the Ladder Match, the victor is awarded a contract for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship that he, or she, can put into effect At Any Time.

In recent years, winners Dolph Ziggler and Damien Sandow have both cashed in, with differing results. Ziggler cashed in on Raw following Wrestlemania last year, and he successfully won the then World Heavyweight Championship. Sandow, however, cashed in against John Cena earlier this year and lost outright. But the results were both short-lived, as both men eventually fell back into mid-card obscurity.

With the 2014 event, WWE can work towards fixing those mistakes by not only having a clear winner in this years event, but also book that winner to go on to win »
