We Officially Need to Know If Netflix Is Renewing Glow

24 June 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

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. 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. The only question for Netflix fans now is: will there be a season two? Signs point to yes. 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, plus the stars »

‘Glow’: 30 Years After the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, the WWE and Others Are Still Figuring Out What to Do With Women

23 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix’s “Glow” arrives at a time when women who step inside the squared circle are taken much more seriously than they were 30 years ago.

The show re-creates the world of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, the campy all-female promotion whose 1980s heyday is fictionalized in the new series starring Alison Brie.  Fittingly, its subject helped start that process three decades ago.

Last weekend’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view was emblematic of the current state of women’s wrestling in WWE, both in terms of how far it’s come and how much further it still has to go. On the one hand, it featured the first-ever women’s Money in the Bank ladder match (progress!), which guarantees the winner a championship match at the time of her choosing. On the other hand, it ended when a dude named James Ellsworth ascended the ladder and dropped the briefcase down »

Daniel Bryan Shoots On WWE, Working On In-Ring Return! | WrestleTalk News June 2017

21 June 2017 5:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

How WWE Should’ve Booked Undertaker Vs Roman Reigns

‘Smart’ professional wrestling criticism and fantasy booking isn’t just consigned to Internet fandom, four-year-olds also like to do WWE’s job better than them too.

Michelle McCool has posted a photo of her and The Undertaker’s daughter on Instagram watching Roman ReignsSummerslam announcement from this week’s Raw, where she proceeded to tell her father how to beat The Big Dawg and reclaim his Yard.

Of course! He should’ve used his muscles! It’s so obvious now.

And Younger Taker wasn’t the only person looking to beat up The Big Dawg…

Fishy Situation

Braun Strowman made his WWE return on this week’s Raw by bursting out an ambulance, screaming his own name, and beating up Roman Reigns. Strowman had been out with injury since last month after undergoing minor shoulder surgery.

As he keeps reminding The Big Dawg, Braun isn’t finished with Roman just yet, and their Ambulance Match at Great Balls of Fire was announced soon after. Unfortunately, Strowman’s follow-up trashtalking on Twitter contained a slight autocorrect mistake:

Told you #ImNotFishedWithYou

— Braun Strowman (@BraunStrowman) June 20, 2017

Never mind the yard. What about the sea!? All hail the new Poseidon, Braun Strowman!

Raw ratings

With the NBA Playoff season coming to an end, Monday Night Raw bounced back from last week’s 2.53 million low to 3.1 million viewers.

53% of you agreed with me that it was a Cor show, while 33% were slightly less impressed at AvRAWge.

Daniel Bryan Shoots On WWE

Daniel Bryan made his return on last night’s episode of Smackdown, stripping Carmella of her freshly won Money in the Bank briefcase. But her sportsman-like tactics weren’t the only thing Bryan wasn’t happy with in WWE, as he told NBC Sports:

“I think a change of presentation is absolutely necessary. I think the way that we present our superstars probably needs to change…when you watch say Ufc for example, some of the things that are the most endearing, that make you care the most about the fighters are these backstage vignettes that show their real personality…I think changing that dynamic and highlighting the personalities is something we really need to do.”

Breezeango’s Fashion Files skits are a perfect example of this, as is Daniel Bryan’s own success with the Dr Shelby segments when getting over Team Hell No with Kane. The Smackdown Gm mentioned American Alpha as one of WWE’s more recent failings.

And in another interview with Sports Illustrated, Bryan said he’s still “working on” an in-ring return.

John Cena WWE Raw plans, Shelton Benjamin in return talks – WrestleTalk News

20 June 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Happy 15th Birthday, Tna!

Happy 15th birthday Tna! Impact Wrestling! Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Bonanza – whatever name you’re going by this week. The promotion celebrated its 15th birthday yesterday, which was founded on June 19th, 2002.

15 years! On July 2nd we celebrate with #Slamm15 on Pay Per View. Thanks to all our great fans for making this possible. pic.twitter.com/wekdk6lOd4

— Impact Wrestling (@Impactwrestling) June 19, 2017

For all the criticism Tna gets, they provided a vital mainstream alternative to WWE throughout the 00s, and – for better or worse – it was the promotion that gave us Aj Styles, some of the best matches of Kurt Angle’s career, Bully Ray, Beer Money, Broken Matt Hardy and more.

Their 15th anniversary present to themselves? Financial cost cutting!

Ranking All 17 Money in the Bank Cash-Ins From Worst to Best

16 June 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe takes a look at all 17 previous Money in the Bank cash-ins and ranks them from worst to best…

This Sunday night the WWE will crown their 18th Mr. Money in the Bank. Since the debut of the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania 21, the bout has given us 17 victors, 15 of which have gone on to win world titles- a good omen for whoever walks away the winner this Sunday night.

Ever since the first cash-in at New Year’s Revolution 2006, the WWE have tried to surprise fans and come up with different and innovative ways to deploy the gimmick, the majority of which have been successful.

Not all cash-ins are created equal however and some of them have not quite worked out as planned. With that in mind, let’s take a look back at each Money in the Bank cash in and rank them, »

John Cena ‘Free Agent’ status explained, ex-tna stars to WWE – WrestleTalk News

16 June 2017 7:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Roman Reigns Summerslam Announcement

Usually Roman Reigns not appearing on an episode of Monday Night Raw would be seen as a positive for anti-Big Dawg fans. Rather forebodingly for them, however, a promo package ran in his place, advertising his Summerslam announcement for the following week’s show.

The announcement must be pretty substantial, as WWE see fit to reveal it eight weeks before Summerslam’s 20th August date, and three weeks before Raw’s next pay-per-view – which is still called Great Balls of Fire.

Roman doesn’t currently have a storyline feud coming out of Extreme Rules, and this ‘announcement’ could be to set up his next program over the coming months. Whatever the announcement is, Roman is already warning that it’s probably going to annoy us:

Not everyone is going to like what I say, »

Paige WWE return, Triple H vs Kurt Angle planned for WWE Raw? – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Kazuchika Okada Vs Kenny Omega II

For many wrestling fans, the Best Match of 2017 award was won just four days into January, with Kazuchika Okada vs Kenny Omega at WrestleKingdom XI not just being hailed by some as the match of the year, but also as the greatest wrestling match of all time.

The sport’s most respected journalist Dave Meltzer certainly thought so, infamously rating Omega vs Okada at 6 stars. Which is impressive, because he’s ranking system only goes up to 5.

So what happens when their second encounter at last Sunday’s Dominion show is even better?

Meltzer’s eagerly anticipated review of Omega vs Okada II has been revealed in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter at 6 and ¼ stars, where he wrote:

“Okada vs. Omega basically broke the bank on superlatives, if the first »

How Tjp Got His Name

You might’ve noticed in recent weeks that Cruiserweight competitor Tj Perkins started going by the much faster to say abbreviation Tjp – meaning Cruiserweight matches on Raw can now be even shorter. But apparently word efficiency isn’t the only reason behind the name change.

On a recent episode of the Bryan and Vinny Show, Bryan Alvarez claimed Tjp is now so named because Vince McMahon hates the restaurant chain Perkins:

“Vince apparently Hates “Perkins”. He hates it, and he thinks it sucks…and he thinks that if people hear Tj Perkins, they’re gonna think of the f****** restaurant. So now he’s Tjp.”

This is yet another example of Vince’s food preferences potentially affecting WWE programming – with Chris Jericho revealing last week that his Wyatt Family / Shawn Michaels »

How Brock Lesnar vs Samoa Joe should’ve been booked… – WWE Raw, June 12, 2017 review

13 June 2017 9:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

The Beast, Unleashed

Two and a half months after winning the Universal Championship, and defending the belt across the United Federation of Planets, Brock Lesnar finally showed up on WWE TV, opening Monday Night Raw with a Paul Heyman-led promo. It’s a shame Heyman wasn’t wearing a neckbrace to sell being choked out by Samoa Joe the previous week.

Joe soon came down to show Brock he ain’t afraid of no beast, squaring up face-to-face, and then striking first with a mean looking headbutt. The two then had a great pull apart brawl, with Kurt Angle sending down Raw’s mid-card to keep them apart after the usual WWE security goons were destroyed.

After last week’s great promo, the Joe vs Brock feud is now two for two in fantastic segments. »

Real reason Matt & Jeff Hardy off WWE Raw, top Nxt star turning heel? – WrestleTalk News

8 June 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

While we’re all making fun o f both WWE’s Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view name and it’s very sexually suggestive logo, it’s easy to forget how non-pg the world of independent wrestling can be. Like current Lucha Underground star Joey Ryan, who’s actually sponsored by YouPorn. Which is apparently an internet website of pornography videos. I didn’t know that, so I had to Google it. For research purposes.

To give something back to the pornography community – because he’s not just a taker – Ryan has starred in a new YouTube video teaching porn stars Rachel Roxxx and Lea Lexis how to wrestle.

Pornography and wrestling crossovers are rather common – with several former female wrestlers starring in blue movies, and Brazzers currently producing their own version of the Montreal Screwjob. Given that scandal’s name, »

Ex-tna stars join WWE, Braun Strowman WWE return leaked? – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Earlier this year, Luke Harper looked to be set for great things following one of the hottest feuds in WWE: The Viper In The Family storyline between Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt. Flashforward several months later, and all three of those men are arguably considerably worse off. Nice one, House of Horrors match.

With Bray now on Raw and Erick Rowan being weird with a gas mask, Harper is trying out a new gimmick: Family Man, where he talks about his beautiful wife, wonderful child, yadda yadda.

And boy, has he got a corker of a first feud: Aiden English.

Harper has a long-running gimmick on twitter where he posts the day of the week, every day without exception, with the message “You know what that means.” After creepily stalking Harper at a Smackdown house show, »

The 11 Best Moments Of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman

3 June 2017 11:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The following article contains spoilers.

When a movie is 76 years in the making, we hope for some great moments, and in that regard, Wonder Woman does not disappoint. Based upon the iconic DC comic book character created by William Moulton Marston in 1941, this is the first live-action feature film to focus on the Amazonian Warrior, and is the fourth instalment in the DC Extended Universe. It’s also the first live-action comic book movie to be directed by a woman since 2008’s Punisher: War Zone.

Needless to say, anticipation was high as the release date of June 2nd approached, and fans around the world had very clear ideas about what they wanted from Wonder Woman. It’s now apparent that director Patty Jenkins has hit all the right notes though, delivering a flawless introductory solo movie for this beloved character that’s earning praise from critics across the board.

Brock Lesnar WWE title plans leaked? Ex WWE booker in return talks? – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Former WWF booker Vince Russo – the man who uses the word ‘bro’ like most people use punctuation, and someone widely credited, at least in part, for the failures of WCW and Tna – has revealed to Fightful that he recently reached out to Vince McMahon, and Vince McMahon replied:

“I’ve reached out to Vince McMahon in the past week. He got back to me…I didn’t use the word help. You don’t tell Vince McMahon he needs help. I said ‘if you want me to contribute, I’d love to once again contribute.”

Although Russo gets a considerable amount of flack, much of which is well deserved, he was also a significant part of the hottest period in the company’s history: the Attitude Era. And in McMahon, he found a very effective creative »

Being a WWE superstar, Hollywood actor and fiance of a Bella Twin could potentially be quite stressful. But even when you’re feeling anxious inside, worried everything you’ve built will collapse and that the world is going to hell – at least on the outside, you can smell body odour free!

Big Tna Impact Wrestling mistake, why Rusev hasn’t been on WWE – WrestleTalk News

30 May 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Memorial Day won’t just be blamed for Monday Night Raw’s inevitably low ratings, it’s also now the reason behind some fan’s anger towards R-Truth.

In honor of the armed forces, Goldust broke his heel character to tweet: 

#RemeberTheFallen

Dustin Rhodes (@Goldust) May 29, 2017

Presumably still enraged by his Golden Truth tag team partner turning on him, R-Truth replied to the non-kayfabe tweet very much in fake pro wrestling mode:

@Goldust Remember I'm gone getcha

— WWE R-Truth (@RonKillings) May 29, 2017

A few fans on Twitter found the message disrespectful, but nobody complained about Braun Strowman’s Us army-mocking Instagram post yesterday!

But that’s probably because we’re all terrified of him.

Rusev was last seen in a WWE ring on the 5th March at the Raw-exclusive pay-per-view Fastlane, where he was written off TV to undergo surgery. »

When Matt Hardy’s Broken Universe gimmick first debuted last year, ‘Roman Reigns heel turn’ was replaced as everyone’s favourite Fantasy Booking scenario with an inter-promotional ‘Broken Hardys vs Wyatt Family’ feud. Now both acts not only find themselves in the same promotion, but also on the same Monday Night Raw brand. Which means we get interactions like this on Twitter:

WWE stars shoot on fans, original WWE title plans revealed – WrestleTalk News

26 May 2017 3:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Neither the Cruiserweight division on Raw or 205 Live on the WWE Network have been able to capture the wrestling magic of last year’s Cruiserweight Classic tournament. On Raw, their matches are often throwaway 5 minute fillers, while on their dedicated 205 Live show, a large portion of the audience leaves once Smackdown ends.

But even with WWE effectively conditioning their audience to not care about the cruiserweight division, I cannot condone this fan at ringside on his mobile phone while Akira Tozawa did a senton off the top rope through a table on the outside.

Story lines on WWE are sometimes tough to follow either because they are so horribly written or because there’s really no chemistry between the participants. Every now and again though there are those that genuinely seem to hate each other on screen no matter if they’re good friends when the show’s over. Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman are two of the most dominant men on the roster as of now and WWE have decided to against one another in an epic clash that pits “The Big Dog” against “The Monster Among Men” in a titanic struggle that seems one-sided but
