Ex-wwe star teases Royal Rumble return

20 October 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bubba and his not-real-life brother D-Von (sorry to break it to you) left WWE on the 22nd August episode of Raw, where they were unceremoniously ‘retired’ by Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. In the weeks before, it seemed as though WWE planned to turn Bubba Ray heel, hopefully introducing his brilliant Tna character Bully Ray. But, for whatever reason, it never happened.

Over the last few days, though – just two months after leaving WWE – Bubba is already teasing his return. When a fan told him on Twitter that he was really missed on Monday Night Raw, Bubba replied:

How about Tuesday nights on #SmackDownLive ??

And then a few days later, another fan asked if we’d ever see the Bully Ray persona again, to which Bubba fired back:

“Remember the Alamo”

‘Remember the Alamo’ is an American folk song about the last days of the soldiers defending the Alamo. So Bubba could be referencing that. »

WWE Raw 10/17/16 Review – Goldberg answers Brock Lesnar’s challenge, Seth Rollins vs. Chris Jericho and more

Shaun Eddleston reviews the October 17th edition of Monday Night Raw

We are just over two weeks from Hell in a Cell, a gimmick-heavy pay-per-view devoted to a match type once saved for the most intense of blood feuds.

Monday Night Raw hit the airwaves promising the latest chapter in the ongoing rivalries between Roman Reigns and Rusev, Sasha Banks and Charlotte and the celebrated return of Goldberg to an industry he once took by storm. With so many moving parts and pressure on the writing staff to produce a show that can drum up excitement for the October 30th PPV, this week’s episode was an integral one for a brand often unfavourably compared to its Tuesday night counterpart, Smackdown.

WWE: So Bill Goldberg Is Back. Now What?

18 October 2016 8:28 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last night, on WWE Monday Night Raw- the longest running weekly episodic program in history- WCW Legend Bill Goldberg made his hotly-anticipated return. As part of the next escalation of his feud with Brock Lesner, which seems to be ripped straight from the plot of Rocky Balboa, he came out and answered Paul Heyman's challenge from last week.

And he looked great doing it.

Goldberg delivered a promo that was easily- far and away- the best he's ever sounded on a microphone. He was loose; He was natural; and he seemed to be speaking from the heart. The crowd, much to my surprise, absolutely loved him, and his entrance last night will probably go down as one of the most memorable moments WWE has had in quite a while. 

I've got to hand it him. That closing line, which I'll paraphrase here: "You're not just next. You're last! »

Goldberg Returns to WWE, Accepts Brock Lesnar’s Challenge: ‘You’re Next … You’re Last!’ (Video)

17 October 2016 8:14 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Pro wrestling legend Goldberg made his triumphant return to the WWE this evening, appearing on the promotion’s flagship series “Monday Night Raw” following a 12-year hiatus. The 49-year-old entered the ring to respond to a challenge laid down last week by Brock Lesnar’s “advocate” Paul Heyman. After a little hemming and hawing, Goldberg’s answer was as emphatic as the Denver, Colorado, crowd’s chants of both his name and “Holy S–t! Holy S–t!” (Yes, “This Is Awesome!” also made the cut.) “I thought to myself, maybe I have one last ass-kicking in me … maybe I »

WWE say Paige “tested positive for an illegal substance”

12 October 2016 12:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was revealed on Monday that WWE superstar Paige had been suspended again for her second Wellness Policy violation, which caused the wrestler to tweet “same shit, different day” and claim she was wrongfully suspended. Her claim is that she has a doctor’s prescription for her bad neck, just not one from the WWE doctors. Her family, who are also in the wrestling industry, took to Twitter and Facebook to defend her and bad-mouth WWE for their actions.

Same shit different day. Kids..Please don't get prescriptions or doctors notes. Not acceptable.

Paige (@RealPaigeWWE) October 10, 2016

Rules apply depending on your status.

Paige (@RealPaigeWWE) October 10, 2016

Well, WWE have issued their own statement now – and they’re saying Paige was suspended for an illegal substance, not pain killers.

“[Paige] tested positive for an illegal substance, not a prescription drug,” they told the New York Post. “In addition, WWE is providing world-class medical care for her in-ring injury. »

WWE Raw 10/10/16 Review – Paul Heyman issues challenge to Goldberg, Seth Rollins vs. Chris Jericho and more

Shaun Eddleston reviews the October 10th edition of Monday Night Raw

Last week’s episode of Raw saw Sasha Banks defeat Charlotte to win the title for a second time. It saw a back and forth contest with Banks getting the win, plus, Dana Brooke wasn’t at ringside. What could be the fallout of this match on Raw? Could Charlotte and Brooke’s tensions increase?

Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship got confirmed for the Hell in a Cell PPV as well. These two have feuded since the beginning of September, and even wrestled at Clash of Champions. This saw Ko win his first title defense, but with controversy. The Architect will get his second opportunity, though, so what will he do to build momentum?

The first match announced for Hiac had been Roman Reigns vs. Rusev for the United States Championship. It’s also »

WWE Legend Goldberg Confirms He’s Returning to ‘Raw’ (Video)

11 October 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Pro wrestling legend Bill Goldberg has assured the WWE Universe that he will be returning to the ring — at least to respond to Paul Heyman’s recent challenge. Heyman, who is the so-called Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar’s “advocate,” called out the icon Goldberg last night on the pro wrestling promotion’s flagship USA Network show, “Monday Night Raw.” This morning, Goldberg gladly took him up on the offer. Here’s the other mountain of a man’s Twitter response: Booking my flight to answer that big mouth @HeymanHustle ‘s challenge next week in person on #MondayNightRaw#WhosNext? #seeyathere@WWE »

Goldberg returns to WWE next week

11 October 2016 2:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After more than 12 years away, Goldberg will make his long-awaited return to WWE programming on the October 17th episode of Monday Night Raw.

Goldberg confirmed the news via his Twitter account:

Booking my flight to answer that big mouth @HeymanHustle 's challenge next week in person on #MondayNightRaw #WhosNext? #seeyathere @WWE

Bill Goldberg (@Goldberg) October 11, 2016

His tweet came on the heels of a segment during last night’s episode of Raw in which Brock Lesnar‘s advocate, Paul Heyman, issued a challenge to Goldberg.

Goldberg’s final match in WWE was against Lesnar at WrestleMania Xx in 2004 – and it was an absolute disaster. Fans knew going into the match that Goldberg was about to leave WWE, and that Lesnar intended to launch an NFL career, so both men were showered with boos throughout the match. Goldberg won, and after leaving the ring fans sang “Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye,” which »

Vince McMahon “upset” with WWE Raw, Goldberg return confirmed?

7 October 2016 4:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s World Smile Day today. Which is pretty lame. But, still, we should probably take a moment to remember all those who have lost their smiles. Here’s to you, 1997 Shawn Michaels…and 2016 Vince McMahon.

The Monday the 26th September edition of Monday Night Raw went up against the presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton – where zero people went through tables. It was really disappointing.

The debates got an enormous 80+ million viewers, which inevitably took chunk out of Raw’s audience, which dropped 8% to a 1.75 rating – one of its lowest rated Monday nights in the history of the show. This came after back-to-back weeks of being below the 2.0 mark, which hasn’t happened since the mid-90s. I don’t really know what any of those numbers mean, but it sounds bad.

This week’s Raw was better, but still beneath the 2.0 benchmark at 1.92 and only the »

WWE Nxt 10/05/16 Review – Andrade “Cien” Almas & Cedric Alexander vs. The Revival, Samoa Joe ruins Dan Matha’s debut and more

6 October 2016 3:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shaun Eddleston reviews the October 5th edition of Nxt…

This week saw the beginning of the Dusty Rhodes Classic tag team tournament, which was a highly entertaining series of matches last year, that promises to up the action this time around.

On last week’s episode of Nxt, the first team announced for the Dusty Classic was Tye Dillinger and Bobby Roode. The Perfect Ten was coming off a victory over Angelo Dawkins, and he was approached by Roode. The Glorious One requested Dillinger as his partner, and the alliance was formed. How will they coexist once the matches get under way?

Samoa Joe also continues to loom over Nxt with the promise of total destruction. As long as Shinsuke Nakamura is sidelined, Joe has vowed to wreak havoc on the entire roster until he’s given a chance to regain the Nxt Championship. Last week he attacked the debuting »

Shaun Eddleston reviews the October 3rd edition of Monday Night Raw

With Hell In A Cell just less than four weeks away the story lines and potential matches for the Raw brand’s next pay per view are beginning to take shape.  The biggest story right now on Raw is the one surrounding The Universal Championship.  Seth Rollins has been chomping at the bit to get his hands on champion, Kevin Owens, going as far as blatantly disobeying General Manager Mick Foley’s order to try and get after Owens.  Will Rollins succeed in getting some revenge on the “Prize Fighter”?  Will he defy Foley again?  Will Owens be ready for whatever Rollins has in store?

The Women’s title is also up for grabs too, with a highly anticipated rematch between Charlotte and Sasha Banks. Who would walk away from the match with the title? How involved would Dana Brooke be in the outcome? »

Lrm Hot Rumor: Will Netflix Unleash 3 Marvel Shows In 2017? Will Summer Be A War Zone?

4 October 2016 9:09 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Is everyone enjoying access to Luke Cage, the third of Marvel's Netflix series? It's certainly been an exciting few days for fans of Marvel's Netflix shows, right?

It's obvious now that the Netflix deal that was originally announced goes far beyond the single seasons for the four heroes: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.

With The Punisher now firmly on the way and second seasons for Daredevil and Jessica Jones, Netflix and Marvel are adapting to the popularity of characters while building an interconnected universe like the one the McU has established. That means the schedule for the future of Marvel/Netflix shows isn't what we were told initially with four series culminating in a movie crossover event.

Here's the latest on the future of Netflix/Marvel properties that we can piece together thanks to previous reporting and our ever-vigilant sources.

Huge title change on WWE Raw

4 October 2016 2:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night’s episode of WWE Raw saw Women’s Champion Charlotte put her title on the line against Sasha Banks in the main event of the show – and Sasha won the title.

The finish saw Banks lock in the Bank Statement, but Charlotte rolled her up for a near-fall, leading to Banks re-applying the move for the submission victory. This is the second time Sasha Banks has beaten Charlotte on Raw for the WWE Women’s Championship, and it marks her second title reign. It’s also the second time in history that a Women’s Championship match has been the main event of Raw, the last being Lita vs. Trish Stratus in 2011.

Both Banks and Charlotte are former Nxt Women’s Champions.

Banks and Charlotte will likely continue their feud into the New Year, with newcomer Bayley added into the mix. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer has noted »

WWE’s 2017 Royal Rumble to Return to Alamodome for First Time in 20 Years

30 September 2016 3:24 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The 2017 “WWE Royal Rumble” will take place at the San Antonio, Texas, Alamodome — the first time the event has returned to the venue in 20 years. The over-the-top-rope fracas is set for January 29, 2017, and will run on the Svod service WWE Network. The show is considered the official kickoff to the so-called “Road to ‘Wrestlemania.'” The winner of the actual titular Royal Rumble elimination match — a 30-man free-for-all — will earn a title shot at “WrestleMania 33.” That show will take place on April 2, 2017 in Orlando, Florida.

WWE Smackdown 09/27/16 Review – Dean Ambrose vs. Aj Styles, The Miz’s homecoming celebration and more

Shaun Eddleston reviews the September 27th edition of Smackdown Live!…

This week, SmackDown went back to the old Monday Night Wars WCW style booking and gave us another pay-per-view quality main event on free television. Last week was a battle between John Cena and Dean Ambrose that saw the former Shield member go over clean. This week, it’s a WWE Championship rematch from Backlash between Ambrose and Champion Aj Styles. With such a big match on the card for the night, and Monday Night Raw getting hammered in the ratings by the Presidential Debate, would this be the week that SmackDown passes the flagship show in viewership?

WWE Raw 09/26/16 Review – Roman Reigns vs. Rusev, Jeri-ko vs. Enzo & Cass and more

Shaun Eddleston reviews the September 26th edition of Monday Night Raw

Following on from an action-heavy Clash Of Champions that ended in controversy (read my review here), this week’s Raw looked to make up for a lack of storyline progression for most of the feuds, with two championship rematches announced before the show, as well as potentially answering some buring questions from the night before.

Did Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley in any way have prior knowledge of Jericho’s involvement in last night’s main event? How would WWE address the non-finish to last match in the Cesaro vs. Sheamus Best of 7 series? and what would be next for The New Day in terms of challengers to their titles?

Shaun Eddleston reviews the September 19th edition of Monday Night Raw

We left last week’s episode on a pretty high note, especially concerning the fantastic main event (read my review here), and with Clash Of The Champions under a week away, Raw needed to maintain that momentum this week. What repurcussions would Seth Rollins face for his interruption last week? Could Cesaro bring his score in the best-of-7 series up to even things out? How well would the new Cruiserweight Division fare on the flagship show?

Mick Foley sets up several matches

An angry, focused Roman Reigns seethed in the ring before Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley cut off his speech. Foley announced that Seth Rollins will battle Rusev next up in the show, and Reigns will take on Rusev at Clash of Champions.

Foley then talked about the tenuous nature of his general manager position.

WWE Cruiserweight Classic – Week 10 Review

Shaun Eddleston reviews week 10 of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic

After 9 weeks of incredible competition, we’ve reached the final episode of the tournament, and with the Cruiserweight division coming to Monday Night Raw next week, anticipation couldn’t possibly be higher. Last week (read my review here) determined the superstars who would progress onwards in the tournament, so this week we found out who would pick up the win in the finals!

First match: Gran Metalik (Mexico) vs. Zack Sabre Jr. (England)

The Cwc trophy was set up in the entrance area so that the wrestlers would walk past it. Bryan noted that Metalik won all of his matches with the Metalik Driver. Ranallo noted that the semi-final matches now have 30-minute time limits.

The wrestlers shook hands before the match. Once the bell rang, Metalik threw a dropkick that sent Sabre to ringside, then dove onto him. Back inside the ring, »

Paige to return to Monday Night Raw next week, breaks silence on her wellness policy violation

14 September 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suspended WWE superstar Paige is set to return on next week’s Monday Night Raw, and broke her silence on Twitter with the following message:

“First, I’d like to thank all my fans for their love and support the last few weeks. Let me begin by saying that the rumors that I’m leaving the WWE are completely false! I certainly look forward to returning back to action at some point, once my injury is treated and on a healthy return. Although I was disappointed by my suspension, I respect the WWE’s Wellness Policy. However, let me be clear that I was not suspended for failing a drug test, it was merely due to a procedural issue. I took the test, I passed it. I arranged said test to happen after I wasn’t at my home when aegis contacted me. So I drove 200 miles to do it. »
