WWE Raw Preview: Will Brock Lesnar Appear, Ddp Returns?

2 July 2012 3:26 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Tonight’s WWE Raw SuperShow comes from Laredo, Texas and the big storyline being hyped is Brock Lesnar’s answer to Triple H’s challenge for a match at WWE SummerSlam 2012. Brock won’t be on tonight’s show, instead it will likely be a pre-recorded message from Lesnar and/or his legal advisor Paul Heyman. Lesnar, who has a limited dates contract with the WWE, will return at the 1,o00th Raw episode and not before. Triple H is also not advertised for an appearance tonight.

Teddy Long is this week’s temporary manager of Raw and SmackDown, leading into the appointment of a full time replacement for John Laurinaitis on the 1,000th Raw. As Long is a face character, we can expect some fair contests tonight and probably another Alberto Del Rio vs Dolph Ziggler match to determine the number 1 contendership to Sheamus’ World Title at WWE No Way Out. »

WWE Raw Preview: John Cena Promises Historic Announcement Tonight

25 June 2012 3:56 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

John Cena has promised to make a huge announcement on tonight’s WWE Raw SuperShow from Fort Wayne, Indiana. He tweeted earlier today;

“In Fort Wayne for #Raw tonight I have an announcement that will make history! Make sure to watch #Raw”

The tease is an interesting one as Cena has no clear direction in WWE storylines right now. After defeating Big Show in the Steel Cage Match at WWE No Way Out last week that ended his current feud with John Laurinaitis, the Raw General Manager was then fired by Vince McMahon. His final farewell took place on last week’s Raw, though Cena has still been wrestling Laurinaitis, Tensai and The Big Show in handicap matches on the weekend house shows. Unless WWE come up with some cock and bull story to get Laurinaitis back on television then Cena will need to move on to a fresh angle tonight. »

WWE Money in the Bank PPV: Alberto Del Rio vs Sheamus Likely

21 June 2012 4:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio for the WWE World Heavyweight Title is likely to place at WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view on July 15th, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

WWE are trying again with the World Title match that was originally set to take place at WWE No Way Out this past Sunday. As we reported, Alberto Del Rio was pulled from the match because of a serious concussion he suffered on SmackDown. There were also some reports yesterday that Del Rio had threatened to quit the WWE recently which may have also played a part into him being dropped from the match.

In regards to why Del Rio was able to wrestle on WWE Raw the night after No Way Out, Dave Meltzer is reporting that Del Rio was actually cleared to wrestle a few days before the WWE No Way Out pay-per-view but by then the »

WWE No Way Out In Review – Title Matches Save Lacklustre PPV

20 June 2012 10:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

What Culture’s review of this past Sunday’s WWE No Way Out pay-per-view that featured four title matches, three unannounced matches and a firing…

 

World Heavyweight Championship: Dolph Ziggler vs Sheamus – World Heavyweight Championship Match

The opening match of the show consisted of the World Heavyweight Title being defended which is a sad indictment of the current WWE product. The match itself was very good however, Ziggler looked strong and competitive throughout, getting in some good moves and while Sheamus reigned victorious with a clean win, Ziggler managed to show how over with the fans he really is (Ziggler chants continuously echoed the arena).

The action was intense and with Dolph getting a lot of time to work over Sheamus, he was made to look like a serious contender for the World Heavyweight Title. It was a nice touch to the beginning of the match where they teased a Wrestlemania replay, »

Alberto Del Rio Wants To Quit WWE?

19 June 2012 4:16 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Alberto Del Rio had a dispute with senior WWE management recently and he threatened to quit the company, according to F4WOnline.com.

Their sources in the WWE claim that Del Rio has become so frustrated with his role in the company and his current contract that he has been contemplating quitting. It is said that after speaking his mind to WWE officials a couple of weeks ago, he threatened to walk out on American wrestling.

It has been well documented that WWE were unhappy with how Alberto Del Rio’s two reigns as WWE Champion went last year. Vince McMahon hand picked Del Rio to become the big star of 2011, having him win the Royal Rumble in January and become a main event player who eventually won the gold in the summer but McMahon’s criticisms of Del Rio’s performances, particularly in his lack of aggression and playing »

WWE Raw Preview: Brock Lesnar’s Camp Respond To Triple H

18 June 2012 4:01 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE has announced that Brock Lesnar’s “camp” will respond tonight on Raw to Triple H’s challenge for a match at WWE SummerSlam 2012. As promised, Hhh appeared at last night’s WWE No Way Out pay-per-view and cut a promo on Lesnar addressing the attack from a month back when the former Ufc and WWE Heavyweight Champion “broke the arm” of The Game.

We can probably expect that Brock Lesnar himself won’t be appearing on tonight’s show as he isn’t expected back int the WWE fold until at least the 1,00th episode of Raw in late July. Lesnar is only on a limited contract at the company and WWE are trying to save as many dates for him as possible to do a program at WrestleMania 29 next year, probably against The Undertaker.

Brock Lesnar’s “camp” likely means Paul Heyman, who has been acting as Lesnar »

WWE No Way Out Results: John Cena Defeats Big Show & Laurinaitis Gets Fired

17 June 2012 11:41 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Matt Striker and Scott Stanford kick off the WWE No Way Out pre-show hyping up the card live from the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Backstage we see Primo, Epcio and Rosa Mendes arguing with Abraham Washington. They want to know when they are going to get their WWE Tag Team Title shot. Aw says he has placed them in a fatal four-way match for the number 1 contendership for the tag titles and this will put them in a great spotlight for the gold. The Usos vs Primo & Epico vs Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel vs Titus O’Neil & Darren Young is set for the pay-per-view later.

Pre-Show Match: Brodus Clay defeated David Otunga via countout when Otunga wanted no more of Clay. Otunga poses as Clay and his dancers celebrate the victory.

John Cena cuts a promo and says his match with Big Show tonight will shake »

WWE No Way Out Live Stream: How To Watch PPV Online

17 June 2012 3:54 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE No Way Out returns to WWE’s PPV calendar tonight with an action packed card that all takes place from the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. As WWE have liked to remind us, the event takes place just a small way away from the MetLife Stadium where next year’s WrestleMania 29 takes place from April 7th, 2013.

There are several questions going into tonight’s pay-per-view which all have interesting ramifications for future storylines. Will John Cena or John Laurinaitis be fired after the outcome of the Steel Cage main event between Big Show vs Cena? Who will Aj Lee align herself with tonight in the WWE Title three-way between Cm Punk, Daniel Bryan and Kane? Will WWE actually have the faith to properly push Dolph Ziggler and have him win the World Title tonight against Sheamus? And perhaps most importantly of all, who will win the Tuxedo »

WWE No Way Out PPV Picks & Predictions: John Laurinaitis To Be Fired

17 June 2012 6:37 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

We were all quite excited for the upcoming WWE No Way Out PPV here at WhatCulture! Daniel Bryan challenging Cm Punk for the second time on a globally televised WWE PPV was worth coughing up cash for on it’s own – it didn’t matter who else was involved over the rest of the card – then they threw Kane into the mix.

Sure, Kane has been entertaining, and the Aj/Kane love story is intriguing, but there really wasn’t any need to spoil a perfect title match by involving a near 7 foot tall, lumbering powerhouse with zero finesse and only a tenth of the ability of his opponents. That’s when the weakness of the whole card became horrendously evident, but of course we’ll sit through it so that you don’t have to. Results will be posted on here as they happen. But in the meantime here »

Triple H vs Brock Lesnar At WWE SummerSlam 2012 To Get Major Storyline?

16 June 2012 11:17 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The current John Laurinaitis and Vince McMahon storyline could end up merged with the Triple H and Brock Lesnar feud at WWE SummerSlam.

F4WOnline.com reports that one idea WWE creative has, and it does seem pretty clear from the current storylines that this is the current direction, that Vince McMahon will fire Laurinaitis at Sunday’s WWE No Way Out pay-per-view when John Cena defeats The Big Show. From there, the storyline would play out that Laurinaitis would return soon later with Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman and possibly Big Show as a stable, thanks to some help from the WWE Board of Directors.

Vince McMahon would then side with his son-in-law Triple H and perhaps the ownership of the WWE would be on the line when the expected Triple H vs Brock Lesnar match happens at WWE SummerSlam 2012 in August. McMahon would be in Hhh’s corner with Laurinaitis in Lesnar’s. »

WWE No Way Out: Tuxedo Match Added To Card

14 June 2012 3:06 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE announced today that United States Champion Santino Marella had challenged Ricardo Rodriguez to a Tuxedo Match that has been accepted for Sunday’s WWE No Way Out pay-per-view.

The match will be non-title bout and WWE.com announced the match like this;

“Described by Marella as “one of the most electrifying matches in sports-entertainment,” Tuxedo Matches require both competitors to enter the fray in full penguin suits. The objective is to strip the other man of his outfit. For a rivalry that has featured plenty of laughs and more than a tinge of humiliation, the Tuxedo Match is a wholly appropriate venue for Marella and Rodriguez to settle the score”.

So the match is basically the male wrestling version of an Evening Gown Match. It will of course be the comedy entertainment bout of the night and hopefully WWE will have a place for Howard Finkel, in a signature tuxedo, »

Does WWE Have The Guts To Give Dolph Ziggler The World Title?

14 June 2012 1:57 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

This past week on Monday Night Raw, Dolph Ziggler reigned victorious in a Fatal Four Way Elimination match that took place to determine a new number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. He replaes Alberto Del Rio who sustained a concussion at last weeks Smackdown tapings and will face Sheamus at WWE No Way Out this Sunday.

The question is, will WWE be gutsy enough to pull the trigger on Ziggler actually winning the belt?

Common sense insists that Ziggler has no chance of winning the title at No Way Out. He was never scheduled to be in the match with WWE having always intended for the bout to consist of Del Rio vs Sheamus. Ziggler had never even been a thought in the WWE’s creative minds, therefore it would make perfect sense for Sheamus to retain the title and continue his feud with Alberto once the Mexican »

Triple H Becomes WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations

14 June 2012 4:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Triple H has replaced John Laurinaitis as the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations on WWE’s corporate website, making it official that Hhh (listed under his real name Paul Levesque) has taken over his duties.

The change had actually been made some time ago and Laurinaitis had been working under Triple H for a while as Hhh hired Jane Geddes as the new Vice President of Talent Relations (who has taken on making of the duties Laurinaitis had been doing), and Canyon Cemen as the head of Talent Development. Both Geddes and Cemen now report directly to Triple H according to Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

As Laurinaitis had become a regular on-air character, he has had many of his back office duties greatly reduced. The expectation now is that Laurinaitis’ job will be changed further as Triple H stamps his authority in his new role and puts his own people in key positions. »

WWE No Way Out: Dolph Ziggler vs Sheamus For World Title Added

12 June 2012 12:52 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As expected, Dolph Ziggler was the superstar chosen to replace the injured Alberto Del Rio who had to pull out of Sunday’s WWE No Way Out pay-per-view World Title match against Sheamus due to a “serious concussion” he suffered on last week’s SmackDown.

On last night’s Raw, a fatal four way elimination match between Christian, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger and The Great Khali took place to determine a new number 1 contender to face Sheamus for his World Title on Sunday. The match came down to Christian and Dolph Ziggler as the final two and Ziggler hit the Zig Zag for the pinfall victory.

Meanwhile, Vince McMahon announced on last night’s Raw that he will be at ringside for the John Cena vs Big Show main event match at WWE No Way Out to fire John Laurinaitis should The World’s Largest Athlete lose his match. Show »

WWE Raw Results 11/6/12 – Big Show Knocks Out Vince McMahon

11 June 2012 11:56 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Last night’s WWE Raw SuperShow from the Xl Center in Hartford, Connecticut.

John Laurinaitis comes down to start the bumper packed three-hour Raw show and is about to introduce himself when Vince McMahon’s No Chance music plays and he gets a big pop from the crowd.

Vince gets in the ring and says he won’t shake Johnny’s hand because he doesn’t know where he has been. He wants to get right to the job evaluation and he asks Laurinaitis why he should be spared from being fired. Laurinaitis says two words – people power. He says he fumbles his words but he listens to people and he empowers them and they love him for it.

Vince asks the fans if they love Laurinaitis and the response isn’t good. A “fire Johnny” chant breaks out in the crowd as he attempts to suck up to Vince. »

WWE Raw Preview: Vince McMahon Has Two Scripts For Tonight’s Show

11 June 2012 8:36 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As of yesterday morning, Vince McMahon was deciding on two different scripts for tonight’s bulky three-hour Raw SuperShow from the Xl Center in Hartford, Connecticut. F4WOnline.com reports that one of the scripts featured a lot of McMahon segments whilst the other barely featured him outside of the opening segment that has already been confirmed involving a job performance evaluation of John Laurinaitis.

There’s been great speculation tonight that Laurinaitis will be the latest name inducted into McMahon’s “Kiss My Ass” club tonight and as WWE are so desperate for ratings after an horrific couple of weeks, they may go for an elaborate firing angle and the hiring of a new General Manager.

WWE have neither Brock Lesnar or Triple H advertised for tonight’s show. The next step in that angle is expected to be at WWE No Way Out pay-per-view event next Sunday when Hhh “addresses” the Lesnar situation. »

WWE No Way Out: Kane To Replace Injured Alberto Del Rio?

10 June 2012 9:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In a follow-up to our earlier story on Alberto Del Rio, a WWE source has told sports blog Corey Unfiltered that Del Rio’s concussion suffered at Tuesday night’s SmackDown tapings was a “serious” one. The injury came when Sheamus slammed Del Rio’s head against the metal WWE logo and WWE officials are concerned he won’t get medical clearance in time for next Sunday’s WWE No Way Out pay-per-view event.

For last night’s SmackDown live event in Salisbury, Maryland, Kane replaced Del Rio and reports are that WWE officials are discussing taking ‘The Big Red Monster” out of the planned WWE Title triple threat match at No Way Out against Cm Punk and Daniel Bryan so he can face Sheamus for the World Title instead, if Del Rio fails to recover.

Personally, that idea would undoubtedly be the wrong move as at this point No Way Out »

Alberto Del Rio Suffers Concussion, World Title Match At WWE No Way Out in Doubt

10 June 2012 1:09 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE officials fear that Alberto Del Rio suffered a concussion during Tuesday night’s SmackDown tapings in Columbia, South Carolina. With concerns that Del Rio still hasn’t recovered fully from surgery on the groin tear he suffered last night, WWE made the decision to pull Del Rio out of last night’s SmackDown live event in Salisbury, Maryland.

Del Rio’s concussion likely came when Sheamus slammed Del Rio’s head against the metal WWE logo on the show. He is now a big doubt for the June 17th WWE No Way Out pay-per-view where he is currently set to compete against World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus in one of the title main events.

WWE spent Friday trying to figure out alternatives in case Del Rio is pulled from the pay-per-view. Whilst none of the alternatives have leaked, we have to imagine the only sensible thing to do would be »
