WWE Studios and TriStar are moving forward with Pandemonium, a biopic that follows the life of WWE founder and CEO Vince McMahon, with the studios eyeing an A-list star to play this larger-than-life figure. A report claims that the studios have put out an offer for Bradley Cooper to star in this upcoming biopic, although there has been no confirmation of how the actor plans on responding to the offer, but if he does agree to play Vince McMahon, his attachment could be enough to put this biopic on the fast track to production.
This report has not yet been confirmed by WWE Studios or TriStar quite yet, but it would certainly be quite the coup if this project could land a major talent like Bradley Cooper, who, ironically enough, appeared on an episode of WWE's flagship series, WWE Raw back in 2010, to promote his theatrical remake of The A-Team. »

Liam Hoofe Reviews WWE No Mercy 2017…
WWE No Mercy boasted arguably the best card the company has put together this year. With two mega-matches sitting at the top of the card and every title being defended, the show had a lot to live up on Sunday night, but did it deliver? Let’s take a look at each match and see what worked and what didn’t.
Pre Show: Elias Defeated Apollo Crews
The last few pre-show matches have had some sort of title on the line and have therefore been worth watching. This one wasn’t. Both Elias and Apollo are talented guys but the company clearly has no idea what to do with them, so chucking them in a random pre-show match is as good as it’s going to get for both men at the moment.
The match itself was a standard match that wouldn’t look »

Liam Hoofe with his predictions for Sunday’s No Mercy event…
What a show the WWE has put together for this Sunday night as well. Not only is every title on the Raw brand being defended, but we are also being treated to two matches that are WrestleMania worthy. The show could easily turn out to be one of the best PPVs of the year and has had a pretty great build over the last few weeks.
So who is walking away from No Mercy with a tick in the win column? Let’s take a look at my predictions for each match.
Neville Vs Enzo Amore
Enzo Amore has had a strange few months. From being part of one of the company’s most popular tag teams to 205 Live, his »

The pro wrestling world is in mourning today after the loss of one of sports entertainment's most colorful and iconic managers and entertainers. Bobby Heenan, a.k.a. "The Brain," passed away at age 73. While no cause of death was announced, the famous loudmouth manager had been in poor health for years, after he was diagnosed with throat cancer back in 2002. He died at his home in Largo, Florida. Here's part of the WWE's statement on Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.
"WWE is saddened to learn that WWE Hall of Famer Bobby Heenan, regarded by many as the greatest manager in sports-entertainment history, has passed away at age 73. With a career spanning more than four decades, Heenan was the "The Brain" behind some of the most prolific Superstars in sports-entertainment history. Heenan plied his trade as their mischievous manager by running his mouth on their behalf with a sarcastic wit »
During a time of worry and confusion, one Florida woman happened to find a stroke of sweet, sweet luck.
As Hurricane Irma approached her home in Ocoee, Tiffany Hatfield and her three young daughters prepared to make a 700-mile drive to Virginia to stay with a family friend. Hatfield drove all night through heavy traffic on Sept. 8 until she reached Rocky Mount, N.C., where she pulled over at a convenience store early the next morning for a bathroom break.
“We were rushing because it took us awhile to find a store,” Hatfield, 28, tells People. “But while my daughter was in the bathroom, »

“If you’re up for the roller coaster ride, come take it,” Darren Aronofsky has said in countless interviews for his new movie, “mother!” While you’d be forgiven for thinking this is just another director hyping up his own work, Aronofsky isn’t messing around. The director’s new film is truly the most audacious, insane, and Wtf studio release of 2017. Anyone buying a ticket because of star Jennifer Lawrence or because they think they’re in store for a home invasion thriller will certainly be baffled. Even if the plot has been spoiled for you, you’ll still come out utterly shellshocked.

There’s two things that are synonymous with WWE’s Big Show: His mammoth seven-foot frame and his bushy beard. However, one of those things was missing when the “pound-for-pound World’s Largest Athlete” entered the ring for “Monday Night Raw” looking shockingly clean shaven. From comments that he can’t be a heel with a baby face, to comparisons to “Game of Thrones” character Varys (a.k.a the Spider), WWE fans were freaked out by the new look.

If you haven't yet had time to watch Netflix's latest original TV series, you should take this weekend to familiarize yourself with Glow, aka the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, especially since Netflix just renewed the series for season two! This fictional account of forming the real-life 1980s all-female wrestling show stars Alison Brie, Marc Maron, Betty Gilpin, and about a dozen more quirky ladies who come together to film the pilot for what would go on to become a cultural phenomenon. There are so many reasons we need the aforementioned season two. First off, there is still so much story to tell. The entire first season is about these ladies coming together with director Sam Sylvia (Maron) to film the Glow pilot, which means the wrestling show is still in its infancy when season one ends. While Glow has not been officially renewed, the buzz around the show is strong, »

Seth Rollins is one of the biggest WWE Superstars today. A two-time world champion, he’s headlined countless Pay-Per-Views and is responsible for one of the most memorable WrestleMania moments of all-time when he cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Brock Lesnar.
