John Cena Spends 30 Minutes Shaving His Entire Body Every Single Day: "I'm Man-Scaped From Head to Toe"

13 July 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

John Cena isn’t what you’d consider low-maintenance when it comes to grooming. In fact,the recently-engaged WWE superstar takes it so seriously that he dedicates a considerable chunk of time to it everyday.

“I’m completely man-scaped from head to toe — from the ears down — so that takes a bit of time,” the wrestler and actor tells PeopleStyle in a new interview, adding that he spends 30 minutes to an hour a day shaving. “I’m constantly trying to stay up on fine lines in my skin and that stuff, so I’m a lot more grooming-centric than you would realize. »

Mauro Ranallo Out As WWE Smackdown Live Announcer

24 April 2017 10:18 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Newsweek is reporting that Mauro Ranallo, announcer for WWE Smackdown Live as well as boxing and Mma organizations, has left the company. Last seen on WWE television on March 7th, speculation has run high as to the reason why Mauro had been off the air. Some speculated it was due to his bi-polar disorder, which Mauro has been open about. Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, one of the preeminent wrestling news organizations in the country, has been adamant since the story broke that the reason for Mauro leaving was due to bullying from Jbl. Citing the March 13 episode of Bring It To The Table, starring Peter Rosenberg, he cites that Jbl's verbal jabs at Mauro for winning the Best Announcer Award from the Wrestling Observer were cause for Mauro to leave. Mauro had this to say to Newsweek about his departure.

WWE and I have mutually agreed to part ways. »

Christian Bale Comments On His Interest In Future Superhero Roles

24 April 2017 9:06 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Collider recently spoke with Christian Bale about the opening of his new movie, The Promise. Among the topics discussed for the interview, one question that came up was Bale's interest in working in a Marvel movie. His answer may surprise you.

No, I’m not interested in doing that. I’ve never seen — I’m trying to think if that’s correct, I think I’m actually correct, I can’t remember a single superhero film that I’ve ever watched. Apart from the ones I made and like, the Christopher Reeve Superman films.

Interesting comments from someone that defined superhero for an entire generation of movie fans. Yet I think they speak to his skill as an actor as well. Going into the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman, a long time fan may have preconceived notions as to how to play the character. Bale went into the movies with his own ideas, »

WWE remove Jbl signs at Smackdown, Finn Balor injured on Raw | WrestleTalk News

12 April 2017 9:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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

It’s Ok everyone! The Face That Runs the Place, the former Champ that Runs The Camp, The Phenomenal One That…Don’t Want None Aj Styles is staying on Smackdown Live!

Reports that Styles would go to Raw, in exchange for Roman Reigns to Smackdown, date back to late last year, with a WWE game preview showing The Phenomenal One’s silhouette as drafted to Raw up until the weekend. Wrestling News World are reporting the Aj trade was switched for Bray Wyatt in “a last minute change.”

Instead, we ended up with Styles on the same brand as Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. I think Vince McMahon has gotten hold of my fantasy non-WWE roster from 2012.

Joining Owens and Zayn on the blue brand are The Shining Stars Primo and Epico, »

Movie Review – The Marine 5: Battleground (2017)

5 April 2017 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Marine 5: Battleground, 2017.

Directed by James Nunn.

Starring Mike ‘The Miz’ Mizanin, Bo Dallas, Anna Van Hooft, Nathan Mitchell, Naomi, Heath Slater, Sandy Robson, Curtis Axel, and Maryse Mizanin.


While working as an Emt back stateside Jake Carter after responding to a distress call, finds himself caught up protecting a person of interest from a biker gang ruthlessly hunting them down.

Bikers, street thugs, and Marines… *in Michael Cole voice* Ohhhhhhh Myyyyy!!!

To say I love The Marine franchise would be a bigger bullshit lie than Michael Cole professing that he “Loooooooves Final Fantasy” at this past Sunday’s WrestleMania 33. The truth is, these movies are sleep inducing and the complete opposite of exciting, but The Marine 5: Battleground actually isn’t too terrible. It’s certainly not a good movie, but there are aspects to admire.

Directed by James Nunn (not to be confused with James Gunn »

WWE Smackdown Live!! Reaction 2/14/2017

15 February 2017 7:11 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Another Valentine’s Day is over for another year and what better way to celebrate the holiday than by talking about professional wrestling. WWE SmackDown Live! is over for another week. Coming out of the Elimination Chamber Pay Per View, how did the Blue Brand of the WWE stack up this week?

I enjoyed the match between Becky Lynch and Mickie James. This was the match these two should have had on the Elimination Chamber Pay-Per-View. The match these two had just two days later had more impact because one, the action in the ring was solid from bell to bell and two, the right person ended up winning the match. In order for people to take Mickie James seriously for her return, she has to get some wins over credible opponents. This match against Becky Lynch was great to showcase Mickie being a ruthless villain. If they are going »

WWE Smackdown Live! Reaction 1/24/2017

26 January 2017 6:37 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

WWE Smackdown Live! is in the books for the week. The Blue Brand of the WWE wrapped up their go home show, preparing for the Royal Rumble. How did the show do this week?

To start, I really enjoyed the verbal exchange between John Cena and Aj Styles. What I loved about it was some of the unspoken subtext Cena sprinkled through into the mix. If you listen to the promos that both men gave, on paper you’d be hard pressed to find an excuse for why Cena is being presented as anything but a bad guy. Whether it be a build up to an actual heel turn or more likely, microphone work that is being used to manipulate fans like myself into reading more into a feud than is actually there, Cena is walking a fine line between a confident good guy and someone who is just a plain, »

WWE Smackdown Live! Reaction 1/3/2017

3 January 2017 10:08 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

WWE Smackdown Live! emanated from Jacksonville, Florida tonight. The show saw the contract signing between Aj Styles and John Cena for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble. We saw Natalya give a rather horrendous promo in the ring which resulted in Nikki Bella slugging her. And we ended the show with The Miz vs Dean Ambrose facing off for the Intercontinental Championship.

I can’t say enough about the final match. While it won’t go down as a modern day Flair vs Steamboat, Ambrose and The Miz played their parts beautifully. The Miz in particular has really grown as a heel this past year, getting much better in the ring as well as on the mic. To me, it seems like he’s finally found just what it takes to get under people’s skin in the right way. In a lot of ways he’s emulating the »
