10 Most Memorable WWE Raw Moments From 1995

14 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

After two full years on the air, 1995 really changed things for Monday Night Raw. The WWF was still trying to make things work for themselves, but the introduction of Nitro from WCW brought on the “Monday Night War”, and things simply took off from there.

Gone were the stars of “yesterday” like Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage, and Vince McMahon was out to create the next batch of stars that would help carry the promotion moving forward. People like Shawn Michaels and Diesel became especially important coming into the year, with Bret Hart continuing to shine brightly.

While the Attitude Era had yet to officially get underway, the seeds for it were planted in 1995, as the company began to slowly move away from the cartoony product of past years, into a more adult-friendly product. It would be a slow transition overall, but this is the year it began, »

Randy Orton Expected To Return On Monday’s Raw Show

31 January 2015 2:17 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

Randy Orton is advertised and expected to return on Monday’s WWE Raw broadcast from Denver, Colorado. He has been ready to come back for some time now, but WWE continually delayed the return as they felt it would be diluted up against Daniel Bryan’s recovery and Roman ReignsRoyal Rumble win.

Orton had been advertised for other Raw and Smackdown tapings in January, in addition to being advertised for the Rumble show right up until the last minute. As such, some fans are taking his advertised role for Monday with a bit of scepticism. There’s always a chance his return could be delayed again, but there’s really no good reason why he shouldn’t be back this week. He can be the focal point of this week’s Raw and kickstart his expected feud with Seth Rollins for WrestleMania.

7 Burning Questions That Needs Answering On WWE Smackdown

28 January 2015 5:07 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The obvious joke to make is that hell froze over because even The Rock couldn’t save the Royal Rumble Sunday night, so New England got slammed with a blizzard, forcing the cancelation of Monday Night Raw. But that wouldn’t hold up in a court of law, so we’re left to chalk it up to mere coincidence.

Still, with WWE reeling after a PPV that directly led to #CancelWWENetwork trending on Twitter well into this week, a state of emergency in Connecticut might have provided the saving grace the company needed. Roman Reigns was booed out of the building at the end of Royal Rumble, with a hostile Philadelphia crowd spending the last half-hour of the Rumble viciously lashing out after Daniel Bryan was eliminated. Had Raw been live Monday night in front of 15,000-plus fans – especially in Hartford, Conn. – the result might have been more of the same. »

WWE Raw: Results & Review (27.01.15) [The One They Cancelled]

27 January 2015 7:10 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

A day after the controversial and disappointing Royal Rumble and we learn that the live Monday Night Raw show from Hartford, Connecticut has been cancelled due to the historic storm that hit the North-west of the Us, causing roadways to be closed and thus causing WWE to cancel. So, Raw was held at WWE headquarters and we are welcomed by Booker T and Michael Cole who talk about the reasons the live show was cancelled as well as the happenings from the previous night’s Royal Rumble event.

There were obviously going to be no matches held here, because the show is being held at an office building, so we saw complete replays of both the WWE World Heavyweight Title match from Royal Rumble between Brock Lesnar, John Cena and Seth Rollins, and the Royal Rumble match itself. When these matches weren’t on, Michael Cole, Booker T, Renee Young »

10 Most Memorable WWE Raw Moments From 1994

27 January 2015 4:09 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

By the time 1994 had rolled around, after a full year of being on television, Monday Night Raw had already become must-see television for wrestling fans. Looking back with hindsight being 20/20, many people say that the product back then simply wasn’t that great, but you couldn’t tell by looking at all of those televisions that had to be tuned in to watch Raw every Monday night.

The show, like the company itself, was growing and trying to find its stride. Entering Raw’s second year, Vince McMahon wanted things to be bigger. He wanted them to be better. He took the show on the road more, running in different venues around the country. He upped the production values, and things just looked like a much bigger deal as time went on.

Let’s travel back to 1994 for a bit. Seinfeld and ER were the two biggest shows on television. »

WWE Hall of Fame to Induct Arnold Schwarzenegger

26 January 2015 11:28 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

WWE announced today that pop-culture icon Arnold Schwarzenegger will be inducted into the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame at a ceremony to be held on Saturday, March 28 at Sap Center in San Jose, CA as part of WrestleMania Week. Former Governor of California from 2003-2011 and the star of such blockbuster films as Predator, True Lies, Kindergarten Cop and the wildly successful Terminator franchise, Schwarzenegger is a longtime WWE fan dating back to the 1970s, appearing at many Monday Night Raw and SmackDown events through the years.

A seven-time Mr. Olympia winner, he is the founder of the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival, the world's largest annual sports weekend, which hosts 200,000 attendees and more than 18,000 of the world's top athletes. He also appeared at the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony at Madison Square Garden, inducting his friend Bruno Sammartino. Most recently, Schwarzenegger guest starred on the March 24, 2014 episode »

WWE Raw Cancelled – What Should WWE Air Tonight? (Poll)

26 January 2015 10:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

There’s a very good chance that WWE Monday Night Raw will be cancelled tonight due to the blizzard that is affecting the Hartford, Connecticut area. With the governor of the state announcing a travel ban effective this evening, it’s unlikely that WWE will be allowed to have a show that risks the lives of their employees and fans. For once in his life, Vince McMahon may have to tap out to Mother Nature.

With that in mind, WWE does have three hours of programming to fill. What could they do? Here are some choices.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

1. WrestleMania 30 Documentary – It was advertised during the Royal Rumble that WWE is going to air a documentary about WrestleMania 30 after Raw tonight on WWE Network. Perhaps WWE will show it in the Raw timeslot instead. »

WWE Raw Cancelled Tonight Because Of Blizzard?

26 January 2015 8:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Update: For what it’s worth, the Xl Center website has posted on their events page;

Monday Night Raw will take place as scheduled.

There is a massive snowstorm heading to the northeast United States on Monday night and will cause massive travel delays for the next couple of days. Tonight’s edition of Raw is supposed to take place from the Xl Center in Hartford, Connecticut, but it may not actually happen. It’s not too far from WWE headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut.

Last night’s Royal Rumble was in Philadelphia and talent likely drove to the Hartford area last night without problem, but the storm is coming into the area tonight. There have already been over 4,000 flights cancelled in the northeast Us for Monday and Tuesday with more of them possibly being cancelled the following days as well. It’s been called a “historic” storm in »

10 Ways To Save WrestleMania 31 After Royal Rumble Disaster

26 January 2015 6:34 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The Royal Rumble pay per view, as a whole, was a disaster of epic proportions.

The undercard was non existent and the Rumble match itself was uninspiring. The surprising returns, for all their nostalgic value, didn’t hit the heights of previous years while too many stale performers, the likes of Curtis Axel, R-Truth and Adam Rose took the places of hungry Nxt superstars who should have been given a chance to showcase their skills.

The Rock’s ‘surprise’ appearance was publicised (with the obvious ploy to get more network subscription) which made his return to the ring something of an anticlimax. And at the end of the day, who didn’t see Roman Reigns picking up the win?

The event left the WWE Universe in attendance, and those watching on the WWE Network undoubtedly too, up in arms at the farce they had just witnessed. A chorus »

10 Dumbest Things WCW Did To Sting

25 January 2015 12:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The man they call Sting is responsible for some of wrestling’s most memorable moments. Who could forget his chilling presence in the rafters, intimidating the New World Order at the height of their tyranny? What about his countless, show-stealing matches against “The Nature BoyRic Flair? More recently, Stinger has become the talk of the town with his first ever appearance on Monday Night Raw, helping John Cena stick it to The Authority.

There is a reason Sting was the [painted] face of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) until its demise in 2001.

The former six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion had an intangible that can’t be taught: charisma. Whether he was sporting his signature bleached-blonde flattop and colorful face paint or his black and white garb taken straight out of The Crow, fans flocked to see the man now referred to as “The Icon.”

10 WWE Questions You Most Want Answered (Jan 24)

24 January 2015 12:48 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The first WWE Monday Night Raw appearance of “The Vigilante” Sting was a big highlight of WWE TV this week. He showed up at the end of the 1 on 3 handicap match that John Cena had against Seth Rollins, Big Show and Kane. Since wrestlers are dumb, they all turned around, Sting just pointed at them and then Cena rolled up Rollins to win.

That win by Cena also meant that the three fired wrestlers Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan got their jobs back. Hopefully that puts an end to firing angles because nobody ever cares or believes in them very much, but this WWE we’re talking about. They do the same sort of booking all the time. Nothing ever changes that much.

It was a pretty good week for the babyface performers in WWE since Smackdown ended with Daniel Bryan beating Kane in a No Dq match. »

10 Most Memorable WWE Raw Moments From 1993

24 January 2015 1:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

By the time the 1990s had rolled around, Vince McMahon was ready to take another major step forward with the WWF, after having seen WrestleMania do so well in the previous decade. He wanted to take a show that was shot and aired to a live audience in arenas and ballrooms, instead of the usual sound stage shows with taped voice over work that had become the norm in wrestling until then.

In January of 1993, Monday Night Raw was born, and professional wrestling television has not looked back ever since.

It has been 22 long, hard years of blood, sweat and tears, both for Vince McMahon and his promotion, as a whole. Raw has seen some tremendous highs, and it has seen some incredible lows, but by being on the air for so long (1,130 episodes and counting), the show has become a weekly staple of wrestling viewership.

6 Ups And Downs From Last Night’s WWE Raw (Jan 19)

20 January 2015 12:48 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Is it possible that WWE deliberately had an awful Raw to start the New Year so everything after it would look progressively better? WWE Raw continued its strange trajectory Monday night with another episode that got a little more right, but as with most efforts, it was two steps forward, two (maybe three) steps back.

WWE held its Raw Reunion Monday night, welcoming back superstars from yesteryear. Instead of being an opportunity to deliver a shock – remember last year’s Old School Raw that was punctuated by Jake “The Snake” Roberts’ return? – fans saw mostly guys who already are under contract and appear sporadically. Not just that, but this was like a high school reunion where the last state championship football team returned and wondered what happened to their once-vaunted program.

The go-home show before the Royal Rumble typically ends with a hard sell for the Rumble match itself, »

Major Returns Scheduled For Tonight’s Raw Reunion Show

19 January 2015 5:58 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe

Tonight’s WWE Raw show is scheduled to be a ‘Raw Reunion’, with several major returns planned. The show will be from Dallas, Texas, and major names appearing will be Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels.

The show will be built around nostalgia and it could feature an nWo and D Generation X face off. All the major talent from the two factions will be there, leading the internet wrestling community to speculate on an nWo vs Dx angle being established. Perhaps it could even lead to a match at WrestleMania 31, as Hulk Hogan continues to talk about competing this year. The nWo vs Dx would certainly be a big money draw.

In all likelihood, any returns on tonight’s Raw will be for one night only. There does seem a very good chance of the nWo reuniting, but it will be limited to this Raw and no further dates. »

10 Biggest Moments In WWE Smackdown History

19 January 2015 4:21 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Traditionally, WWE see Monday Night Raw as their ‘A’ telecast, something which has never changed since the show crash-landed on television in January, 1993. The ‘other’ main broadcast, Smackdown, has had moments where it’s threatened to supplant the Monday program – there was a time when the blue brand was vastly superior to the red, something Paul Heyman is credited for, due to him booking the vast majority of the show for a period, starting in 2002 with the ‘Smackdown Six’ period (Los Guerreros, Edge, Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit).

Recently, WWE made the decision to shift the show back to it’s original Thursday night slot. Running on Friday evenings for close to a full decade, the hope within the company is that the change will re-invigorate the flagging ratings. Truthfully, the promotion are the victims of their own creeping malaise towards Smackdown.

WWE's 'Tough Enough' fights its way back, again

15 January 2015 12:18 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"WWE Tough Enough" will be revived for a second time, once again by USA Network, which announced the reality competition's return this morning at TCA. The show has had a long history: following three seasons on MTV, it aired a fourth season as a $1 million competition that was integrated into WWE's "SmackDown." After a six-year break, it returned to USA for a fifth season in 2010, but then was cancelled. There were reports last year that it might return on WWE network, but nothing materialized. Now, five years later, USA is again bringing it back again. Its return makes sense, and it's a natural fit for USA. The network also airs "WWE Raw," so there's already a built-in audience of pro wrestling fans. The last time USA broadcast the series, they aired it on Monday nights after wrestling. Many of the contestants from its various seasons have gone on to be part of WWE programs, »
