Jeff Hardy Talks WWE Return! Raw’s Brand Split Makeover! | WrestleTalk News

26 July 2016 10:02 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.

In this episode of the WrestleTalk News, Jeff Hardy talks about wanting to return to WWE, reports of him behaving strangely at a recent wrestling appearance, and all the changes made to the brand split’s first episode of Monday Night Raw.

Raw’s Brand Split Makeover!

Our top story today is Jeff Hardy’s comments about returning to WWE, but first – it’s a new era. And Raw…was Cor.

The first post-brand split episode of Monday Night Raw aired last night, and the presentation of the show has undergone a massive overhaul. We got a new opening video package, logo, theme music (which is called ‘Enemies’ by Shinedown, if you want to add that to your workout playlist) and set. The stage now has a theatre-like proscenium arch, and – in »

Finn Balor Debuts! Raw Championship Title Announced! | WWE Raw 07/25/16 Review

26 July 2016 9:39 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.

A new set! A new logo! A new opening video package! A new piece of entrance music! A new announcer! A new kind of in-ring interview! A New Era – for realsies. This is the 25th July edition of WWE Monday Night Raw…in about 4 minutes.

Raw Re-debuts!

Raw was really good from the opening frame. Shinedown’s Enemies is a much better theme than Tonight Is the Night, the opening video package hit the ground running – even though there was a worryingly long shot of Braun Strowman – and the new Raw graphics straddle old and new remarkably well. I don’t even mind Triple H’s secret Illuminati code.

With the announcers now by the entrance ramp, WCW Nitro style, Raw’s two authority figures opened the show…and then were never seen again. »

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

In this episode of the WrestleTalk News, Vince McMahon reportedly “very upset” with Roman Reigns’ Wellness Policy violation, and apparently souring on him as WWE’s top star; and loads of brand split announcements coming out of last night’s Raw.

Loads Of WWE Brand Split Announcements!

Our top story today is Vince McMahon’s backstage reaction to the Roman Reigns suspension scandal, but first – a whole bunch of brand split announcements happened on last night’s episode of Raw.

In the opening segment of the show, Shane McMahon announced Daniel Bryan as the General Manager of Smackdown – which we all kind of knew already as it was leaked by the WWE app last week – and Stephanie revealed Mick Foley as her General Manager for Raw. Which, along with Vince McMahon and Williams Regal gives us… »

WWE 2K17 Announced; WCW Legend Goldberg Featured As Pre-Order Bonus

31 May 2016 9:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you have been following the WWE, and I still am, for some reason, you may have noticed them teasing a mysterious #Hatch announcement on their social media channels. Well, they have officially revealed what was in the building, and surprisingly, it was WCW Legend Bill Goldberg, as well as the announcement of WWE 2K17.

Set to launch in its traditional October release slot, the latest entry in the popular pro-wrestling franchise will hit the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Although not the cover-star, Goldberg will serve as the title’s pre-order bonus this year. Those that do choose to pre-order the title will receive two versions of the wrestler, representing his WCW and WWE years, as well as two arenas, WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc.

Having been absent from the franchise for several years, as well as pro wrestling in general, the return of Goldberg is a »

Who's Next?! Goldberg Returns in WWE 2K17

31 May 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A legend of the squared circle is returning in WWE 2K17!  Come inside to find out more about how you can play as Goldberg!

The last time we saw Goldberg in a WWE ring was about twelve years ago, at Wrestlemania Xx.  Since then, he's enjoyed a moderately successful acting/hosting career.  However, 2K Games has announced that, as of October 2016, Goldberg is set to make his return in WWE 2K17!

Goldberg will be available in two variations, WCW and WWE versions.  In order to add him to your roster, all you have to do is pre-order WWE 2K17 and you'll receive a code to add both versions.  Plus, WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc arenas! 

WWE 2K17 is set to hit stores this October but pre-ordering is already available.

What do you think about Goldberg's return?

Goldberg returns in WWE2K17

31 May 2016 5:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you were watching last night’s edition of WWE Raw, you’ll have heard a familiar theme as one of the biggest stars of the late 1990s returned to television.

The first trailer for WWE2K17 aired last night, which saw that former WCW Champion Goldberg would be this year’s featured pre-order character. In previous years it has been the return of The Ultimate Warrior and the debut of Sting. Goldberg has not featured in a game since WWE2K14.

Check out the official trailer below:

Goldberg was thought to be the one star the Nitro era of WCW created, and was the only one to stay with the company to the bitter end (The Giant, Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero all left by 2001). He was not part of the derided InVasion storyline due to WWF refusing to buy out his Time Warner contract, but he »

9 Things That Should Have Happened On WCW’s Final Nitro

29 March 2016 11:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Verbally tearing right through men like Ted Turner, Buff Bagwell and Jeff Jarrett, Vince McMahon appeared to be having an absolute blast on the March 26, 2001 edition of Raw Is War. Complete with a wholly smug grin, the WWF’s head honcho opened up a simulcast between Raw and WCW’s Monday Nitro, declaring that he was appearing on the rival show because he had, in fact, purchased World Championship Wrestling.

Whilst news didn’t travel quite as fast back then in 2001 as it does now, many in the wrestling community were already aware that McMahon had purchased 24 talent contracts, the WCW tape library and numerous WCW trademarks for around $2.5 million by the time Nitro and Raw hit the air. Still, it was quite the shock to see Vince callously declare that the fate of WCW was now in his hands.

Later, WCW would sadly become a mere pawn »

The Icon: Looking Back On The Career of Sting

18 March 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kieran Fisher looks back on the career of Sting following his retirement from in-ring competition…

After an illustrious 30-year career, Sting is expected to retire from professional wrestling, following an injury picked up against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions last year.  The Icon’s decision to call it quits comes as no surprise, but it is upsetting for fans who were hoping to see him don the face paint and brandish the bat one last time to end his short-lived WWE career on a high with a victorious Wrestlemania moment.  That being said, The Stinger’s impact on the business has been monumental; as one of the biggest stars the industry ever produced, he’ll go down in history as one of the immortals, placed in the upper echelons of wrestling’s most revered legends.  However, despite his status in the business, his career was one beleaguered with more mishandling than triumph. »

Why Edgar Wright should direct DC’s Flash solo movie

14 March 2016 1:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“It’s still strange to me that people think DC and Marvel are rivals. Thinking we sit on the Marvel sets talking (trash) about DC.”

-Anthony Mackie, Falcon in Captain America: Civil War.

Movie studios aren’t humans. They’re corporate entities that produce films. But a lack of humanity doesn’t stop them from possessing human traits. They take on the personalities of those that run them. Marvel has the calm, measured strategy of Kevin Feige. LucasFilm, under Jj Abrams, focuses itself on developing the next wave of science fiction directors. And Zack Snyder’s ‘Let’S Do Everything Because We Can Do Everything’ approach has permeated the DC part of Warner Bros.

The point of this is to show studios, although not human, are subject to human frailties. In any environment where there is competition – and, make no mistake about it, even though Marvel, DC, Sony and »

13 More Interpromotional Dream Wrestling Matches We Must See

24 February 2016 8:07 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

El Rey Network/WWE.com

Back in November, I wrote an article that looked at just how permeable the walls between the world’s biggest wrestling promotions had become. Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa and New Japan legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger showed up to wrestle in Nxt. Alberto Del Rio, then the reigning Aaa Mega Champion, showed up on WWE television and pinned United States Champion John Cena.

You’d think that was the climax, but no.

On the heels of New Japan’s WrestleKingdom 10, another international shake-up occurred as WWE lured away four of that promotion’s top stars. Aj Styles has already made an impact in WWE, while Shinsuke Nakamura is Nxt-bound and a healthy fraction of the Bullet Club are waiting in the wings.

Simply put, the matches on this list aren’t mere fantasy anymore. The time-honored smark tradition of hypothetically matching up rivals from different promotions »

21 Wtf Moments From WCW Nitro (Feb 16th 1998)

24 February 2016 12:08 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

With just six days until SuperBrawl, things are heating up on Nitro and throughout the whole show the commentators remind us that Hollywood Hogan and the Macho Man will need to co-exist to take on Sting and Lex Luger. That’s a huge main event, folks!

There’s some fun undercard developments with Chris Jericho, Ddp and Raven while we also see a few recognisable if not baffling faces turn up, too.

With three hours to fill, WCW are already starting to struggle to have exciting segments and matches throughout the whole show but there is a nice trend of every half hour or so giving the audience a big development to sink their teeth into and keep them watching, hopefully until the end.

Finally, Bret Hart makes his return to Monday Nitro and he’s still intent on getting his hands on Hollywood Hogan, while a familiar »
