WWE Ending Rusev Vs. Swagger Storyline?

22 July 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

At Sunday’s WWE Battleground PPV there was a somewhat controversial promo that Lana did before Rusev’s match with Jack Swagger where she mentioned “current events” that upset people. It was clearly a reference to the Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 that saw 298 people die after a missile attack by the Ukraine/Russia border. We reported on the story multiple times and several major news outlets around the world like the Daily Mail and Washington Post reported on it. Some people were outraged by it. Others just realized it was part of a wrestling storyline.

On Monday afternoon WWE felt like they should say something about it, so they released this statement: “Last night’s segment during WWE’s Battleground event was in no way referring to the Malaysia Airlines tragedy. The storyline with characters Rusev and Lana has been a part of WWE programming for more than 3 months. »

Daniel Bryan’s 10 Best Matches

28 April 2014 4:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

With his recent triumph at WrestleMania XXX, Daniel Bryan has become one of the biggest and brightest stars in the wrestling industry. However, long before he signed with the WWE, Bryan had already made a name for himself as one of the most talented wrestlers in the game, with four star matches all over his resume. By the time he debuted on WWE television in early 2010 as a “rookie” on Nxt, Bryan had already been involved in more high caliber matches than many on the WWE roster at the time. Certainly many more than the Miz, who was Bryan’s mentor during the Nxt segments.

Few wrestlers have came into a major company with this kind of reputation and hype, deemed the “best wrestler in the world” by many before he ever wrestled for the first time on a WWE show. This was due to his extensive work »

WWE: 10 Major Predictions After WrestleMania 30

25 March 2014 12:08 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WrestleMania 30 is two weeks away. By now, everybody has offered up their predictions. Most people aren’t going to agree on all the matches even though it’s shaping to be a show with a lot of victories for the babyfaces.

What about the events after WrestleMania? They’re going to be very important for WWE. Last year, the best part of WWE were those spring/summer months that lasted from WrestleMania through to SummerSlam. After that, the quality of the programs suffered and the product became lame as a result. It didn’t help that they went back to Cena vs. Orton at TLC. Some things change in this world, but in WWE they apparently stay the same.

There are a lot of questions surrounding WWE performers post WrestleMania as it pertains to the WWE Title picture, the part-time performers, midcard champions and more. What characters are »

WWE: 10 Reasons Why We Love Mickie James

17 February 2014 1:02 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

There have been hundreds of women that have walked through WWE’s doors, but few of them have accomplished what former 5 time Women’s Champion and 1 time Divas Champion Mickie James has. Her wrestling career started back in 1999 when she began her training, she appeared on Tna’s first PPV in 2002, then signed with WWE and in 2005 made her on screen debut. In 2006, she had one of the most famous women’s wrestling matches ever in her WrestleMania debut.

Looking back at her career, the 34-year-old James has accomplished a lot and has openly talked about a desire to return to WWE. Seeing Mickie back in a WWE ring would be wonderful because there are plenty of new opponents for her to feud with since she left the company in 2010.

It’s also fair to say that Mickie is arguably »
