Jackson Ball outlines the reasons why he’s remaining optimistic about this Sunday’s Pay-Pay-View event…
In recent years, December has been a tricky month for WWE. As they seemingly rely more heavily on Wrestlemania season with every passing year, so to do they place less significance (and dare I say, effort) into the months that directly proceed it.
Perhaps the clearest example of this is the annual Tables, Ladders & Chairs event. While it has undeniably been enjoyable in the past, the December PPV has always depended heavily on its gimmick of ‘demolition derby’ matches, as opposed to memorable storylines. In many ways, TLC embodies the notion that the WWE Creative team drop into ‘auto-pilot’ from Summerslam to the Royal Rumble.
However, this year there is a very real chance that, not only will TLC be a step in the right direction for WWE, but it could well surpass the »

Despite Aston Villa’s loss to Arsenal in the Fa Cup final last season, the cup run was at least a welcome change from the upsets that have plagued Villa’s recent history.
An embarrassing exit at the hands of a team from a lower division was an all too regular occurrence under Paul Lambert, with the likes of Bradford City, Milwall, Leyton Orient and Sheffield United booting Villa out of both the Fa and League Cups.
Like Villa, Notts County have struggled in recent years but could use the League Cup as a welcome distraction.
It will be a difficult task for them, though. Sherwood is likely to play a strong squad and will probably use the opportunity to give his newly assembled team more time to gel.
New boy Adama Traore could be given his first full debut under the lights at Villa Park, »

Written and Drawn by Jay Gunn | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp
Issue 1 of this series proved to be a pleasant surprise, steering clear of many of the clichés and pitfalls similar series have suffered from. New boy Jay Gunn proved very adept at plotting, scripting and illustrating last month’s issue and I have been looking forward to seeing if he can keep that run going.
To briefly recap, Surface Tension #1 introduced us to a world where 99% of humanity has died from the ‘Sea Sickness’ (they kind of melted!). The tiny island of Breith has escaped so far, but when two previously-thought dead people return, now a suspicious shade of blue, things start to happen. A blend of sci-fi and horror that, for the most part, really worked well…
Which then makes Gunn’s decision to jettison most of that atmosphere in favour of a more subdued character-piece »

Music Director, Singer, Actor and Producer Himesh Reshammiya has totally transformed himself once again, and needless to say, he is looking very hot these days! Himesh has been hitting the gym on a regular basis to achieve his new toned physique. When Himesh entered the set of his forthcoming reality show ‘The Voice: India’ on &TV recently, it was clear that his new look has been very much appreciated as Himesh received a mighty round of applause from the crew, for his new avatar.

It's Back. It feels like forever since we had Made in Chelsea on our screens and it returned last night with Barbados, bikinis and lots and lots and lots of newbies. It was a pretty packed instalment of Chelsea nonsense, so read on for 15 things that we loved...
1. The frankly ridiculous opening sequence.
We tend to shout all over the continuity announcer's claims that "some of the scenes have been created for your entertainment" because we prefer to live in a world where Made in Chelsea is 100%, complete and total real life. Which It Is, Right? Unfortunately even we couldn't take the opening sequence seriously as Sam Thompson legged it down the street, bumped into Mark-Francis and woke up Jamie so he didn't miss his flight to Barbados. Utter nonsense.
2. Andy's instant attraction to newbie Jess.
