Finn Balor Debut Highlights WWE Draft

19 July 2016 5:42 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After months of anticipation, rising pro wrestling star Finn Balor will make his TV debut on “WWE Raw” after being selected during Tuesday’s WWE Draft, which divided the company’s roster between its two shows, “Raw” and “SmackDown.” The Draft marks WWE’s return to the brand extension format that it used from 2002 to 2011. Balor was one of six wrestlers called up from WWE’s developmental brand, Nxt, where he became the show’s champion by defeating Kevin Owens at a special show in Tokyo, Japan. Balor made a name for himself with his “Demon” alter-ego, which won over fans with its elaborate. »

26 WWE Superstars You’ll Now Only See on ‘Smackdown’ (Photos)

19 July 2016 5:24 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

These guys and gals won’t be lacing their boots up for “Monday Night Raw” anymore. Tonight’s “SmackDown Live” drew very clear battle lines for the WWE Universe, as Superstars were drafted to one of two rosters. The “Raw” group will wrestle exclusively on the WWE’s three-hour Monday flagship program. The “SmackDown” gang is now live on Tuesday nights. Both shows run on USA Network. “SmackDown” is only two hours, so Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan had just two-thirds the picks to work with. Their first choice though was about as good as it gets, current WWE Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose. »

Who Was Revealed As Raw’s Gm? New Division Announced For Monday Nights! | WWE Raw 07/18/16 Review

19 July 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The following is a guest post from WrestleTalk. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for new videos every day.

 

The 07/18/16 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw reviewed in about 4 minutes – including Raw and Smackdown’s new General Managers revealed, an old division being brought back to WWE, a huge WWE championship match and more…

Brand Split-amania!

The old ‘New Era’ ended with its most common trait – an opening promo segment with some McMahons.

They bantered about the draft, and Stephanie claimed to have better Lady Balls than Shane’s…man balls. Lady Balls was one of the rumoured names for Stephanie’s upcoming autobiography, so it looks like they’re turning that into a catchphrase. It’s a shame, as I much prefer “Filthy, Dirty, Disgusting, Skanky, Brutal, Bottom-feeding, Trash-bag ho”. Drink it in.

On the eve of the Draft, which is taking place for just the ninth time in the company’s history, WWE announced that Mick Foley will act as general manager for “Monday Night Raw,” while Daniel Bryan will be Gm for “SmackDown.” Hall of Famer Foley was introduced to a screaming crowd by commissioner Stephanie McMahon during that latest “Monday Night Raw,” as it was revealed that the show will become the home of a new exclusive cruiserweight division.

Raw And Smackdown Commissioners Revealed!

Our top story today is whether Eric Bischoff is returning to WWE, but first – who was announced as the new brand split commissioners on last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw?

It was Cm Punk!

Ah, I should’ve said ‘spoiler warning’ before I wrote that…It doesn’t matter, because I was only kidding. It’s not Cm Punk. Here comes the real Raw spoilers…

Last night Vince McMahon turned up on Monday Night Raw to reveal who would be in charge of Raw and Smackdown. After what seemed like an 3 hour segment in itself, Vince finally decided Shane McMahon would run Smackdown, »

Brock Lesnar’S Ufc 200 Win

Brock Lesnar is by far WWE’s most high-profile talent right now, winning his first fight in 4 1/2 years at Ufc 200 over the weekend. But all that got was a 30 second photo montage recapping the victory. John Cena got more plugs for hosting the Espys this coming Wednesday. Mr Robot Season 2 got more plugs than Ufc 200.

It’s weird because it’s not like WWE and Ufc are competition or anything. They’re totally different things, guys. Not competition at all. Completely separate. They just »

WWE Names Commissioners for ‘Raw,’ Live ‘Smackdown’

12 July 2016 7:09 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Nepotism may be afoot. WWE’s Vince McMahon named his kids the commissioners of “Monday Night Raw” and “Smackdown” last night. Son Shane McMahon will run the soon-to-be live “Smackdown,” while daughter Stephanie McMahon is set to lead flagship show “Raw.” The appointments should come as no surprise to anybody paying attention, though the pro wrestling promotion has paraded a number of ex-commissioners out lately, each begging for their old gigs back.

Sigourney Weaver Explains How Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Alien’ Sequel Fits Into Canon

7 July 2016 6:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s a pretty exciting time to be an “Alien” fan. Not only is Ridley Scott currently in production on “Alien: Covenant” (which, if we have our facts correct, is an “Prometheus” sequel/”Alien” prequel), but Neill Blomkamp’s slow-moving sequel continues to take shape with tantalizing tidbits from the cast and crew. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the 30th anniversary “Aliens” celebration set for Comic-Con this month, the one and only Sigourney Weaver confirmed an important detail about the continuity of Blomkamp’s fifth installment.

WWE Raw 07/04/16 Review …in about 4 minutes – 4th July Holiday Special! New Day Falls!

5 July 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The following is a guest post from WrestleTalk. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for new videos every day.

The 06/20/16 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw reviewed in about 4 minutes – including the Biggest Food Fight In The World!, a fantastic Aj Styles/John Cena segment, Seth Rollins taking on Dolph Ziggler in a great match, Team USA vs Team Not USA and more…

Independence Day: Indigestion

America! Terry Funk, yeah.

Raw opened on a 4th July dinner comedy skit with most of the main roster, and as soon as The Miz turned up in a pristine white suit, you knew what was coming. Food fight! Which was bizarre for a few reasons: 1) It was actually really funny, 2) Titus O’Neil just stood in the background hitting people with his giant sausage, and 3) it ended with Kevin Owens being hit in the face by a mystery pie thrower.

There was never any payoff to this, »

6 of the best and worst moments of WWE Raw 07.04.16 – USA vs. The World! Vaudevillains jobbed out! Enzo & Cass team with Cena and more

Luke Owen looks at the best and worst moments of this week’s WWE Raw

This week’s show is going to draw a terrible rating due to the national holiday, and as such WWE put out the sort of lame-duck show one would usually see around Christmas and New Years time.

It was main evented by a cluster-tag match, a feud was seemingly ended (quickly) and there was a champion vs. champion match that means absolutely nothing in 2016. So let’s look at the best and worst from the show with our Boo! Yay! rating system.

Boo! Enzo & Cass involved with the Social Outcasts

It was slightly worrying last week when Enzo & Cass – one of the hottest acts on the roster – were involved in a terrible in-ring segment with The J.O.B. Squad 2016, The Social Outcasts. It was worrying because it was an awful use of the characters, »

Seth Rollins Shoots On Roman Reigns’ WWE Suspension! | WWE Raw 06/27/16 Review …in about 4 minutes

The 06/20/16 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw reviewed in about 4 minutes – including Seth Rollins cutting a shoot promo on Roman ReignsWWE suspension, the return of Kane, an interesting note about the WWE Championship, and more…

Seth Rollins Shoots

The show opened on Seth Rollins cutting a promo about how we’ve all been waiting forever to see a Shield triple threat. But that isn’t really what anyone wants to talk about. So let’s talk about Roman Reigns taking some naughty substances.

Rollins called Reigns “embarrassing” and a “mistake,” but never really went full on shoot mode. Everything he said felt sanitised by WWE’s PR team. I would’ve loved for Seth to have gone harder, screaming, “even though Roman cheated by taking banned substances, he still couldn’t beat me! »

Lunatic Champion Promo

The show opened on Dean Ambrose nearly forgetting his WWE Title in a cab on the way to the arena – what are you like, Dean? – to then cut a promo on winning the championship the previous night.

The usual interruptions took place – first Roman Reigns, then Seth Rollins, then a McMahon to make a match between them later that night. The main event’ll be Reigns vs Rollins to be the No.1 contender.

Roman was heckled by “You can’t wrestle chants” yet again. »

‘Alien: Covenant’: Noomi Rapace Reprising Role of Elizabeth Shaw

21 June 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Since before it was even officially announced, the biggest question “Alien: Covenant” had xenomorph-obsessed fans asking is whether Noomi Rapace would be reprising her “Prometheus” role. Deadline is reporting that, despite it long being said that she would not, Rapace is on the “Covenant” set in Australia.

She’s there to shoot a week’s worth of scenes for the sequel (which, given the “Alien” series’ complicated chronology, is also a prequel). Also appearing in the film is Michael Fassbender — whose character David was long thought to be the only “Prometheus” character to return — as well as Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and Billy Crudup. “Covenant” finds the crew of the eponymous ship (everyone other than Rapace and Fassbender, essentially) discovering a planet whose sole inhabitant is David, »

WWE to Create Rivalry Between Its Two USA Programs

20 June 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

WWE is testing a business model from its past in order build an attraction for the future.

The professional-wrestling entertainment company said it would allocate its talent roster among its two big programs on NBCUniversal’s USA cable network, assigning performers like Big Show and Apollo Crews to either its live “Monday Night Raw” program or its Tuesday-night “Smackdown” show, which goes live on July 19. That first live “Smackdown” will feature a draft. Following that event,  the two USA shows will “compete with each other for television ratings, live events, and pay-per-views,” the company said Monday.

The decision means the company will operate two “leagues,” of a sort. Each program will have its own casts, champions, plots and writing teams.

“We’re already hearing the excitement among WWE fans for SmackDown’s new live format, and our audiences are eagerly anticipating the live draft and what it means for their favorite Superstars,” said »
