‘Tmnt,’ ‘SpongeBob,' and more to feature in new Nickelodeon Universe theme park
Are you a fan of SpongeBob SquarePants, The Fairly OddParents, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?? You're in luck! A new indoor theme park is in the works for New Jersey's Meadowlands. It will be called Nickelodeon Universe. NJ.com reported the big news which might actually come as some relief to locals. Now known as American Dream Meadowlands, the area it sits in East Rutherford, New Jersey (right near Giants Stadium/MetLife Stadium) has had dragged out development since it was called Xanadu back in 2002. It was meant to be a sports and recreation area that would have a mall, theater, bowling and more (it even had an indoor ski slope) but after a few bankruptcies, permits, and other issues it's sat as a ridiculous eyesore for all to see driving on the NJ Turnpike. Construction has continued on and off through this year. Nickelodeon Universe is the latest addition

Red Bull Pulls Plug on Austrian Channel Servus TV

Red Bull unexpectedly pulled the plug on its Servus TV Austrian channel on Tuesday, saying it was no longer economically feasible to sustain the broadcaster.

Servus TV launched in 2009 as part of the group’s Red Bull Media House division, which also comprises Red Bull’s print, film, online and games units.

Despite pumping annual sums in the “three-digit million” range for the past seven years, Servus TV said in a statement that in view of the current market situation and competition, a positive development could no longer be expected.

It added: “The changes in the global media market support our decision because digital offering are supplanting classic linear channels.”

Red Bull topper Dietrich Mateschitz also confirmed that apparent plans by some employees to establish a works council at the channel contributed to the decision to shutter the broadcaster.

“That this process was not exactly conducive when deciding on the current situation is evident,

WWE SmackDown Spoilers From Brooklyn, NY

wwe.com

Prior to Monday night’s live Raw broadcast, the company taped matches for this week’s episodes of Superstars, Main Event, and Smackdown. There were only five matches in total, as the pre-WrestleMania shows are typically clip-heavy.

I attended the tapings last night, so here’s my notes of what went down…

Superstars

Jack Swagger pinned Tyler Breeze with a Vader Bomb

Main Event

Ryback pinned Fandango with a Shell Shock

Smackdown

Aj Styles defeated Heath Slater in a competitive match. Slater got the heat when he knocked Styles off the turnbuckle and “The Phenomenal One” fell off and hit his face on the ring steps. Styles came back, fought off interference from the Social Outcasts, and got the pin with the Phenomenal Forearm. Prior to the match, Heath Slater cut a promo where he promised the Outcasts would win the “2011 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

WWE Fastlane 2016 Recap and Review – Ambrose vs. Reigns vs. Lesnar, Styles vs. Jericho III, Divas Championship on the line and more

Cleveland, Oh played host to the final pay-per-view stop on the road to WrestleMania. The main event decided who would take on WWE Champion Triple H at the Show of Shows and the rest of the card saw WWE shuffle the pieces around on the booking chessboard. It’s the Fastlane Report…

1. Pre-Show – Two Out of Three Falls Match for United States Championship: Kalisto (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio

This was nothing we haven’t seen from these two men before and it was nothing short of baffling to see such an intriguing title match relegated to a nothing slot on the pre-show. Nonetheless, Kalisto and Del Rio worked very hard here. Kalisto won the first fall when Del Rio nailed him with a steel chair. This weakened the champion long enough that Del Rio could score his corner foot stomp to even the contest at a fall apiece. The

New Hero Powers Demonstrated In Latest Paragon Trailer From Epic Games

The latest trailer for Epic Games’ upcoming Moba Paragon has arrived to demonstrate the latest set of hero powers that are – well – pretty epic. Starting with a blitzing assault from two flighty heroes, the action quickly becomes intense when a powerful counter attack enters the field of battle.

Opening on Sparrow and Gideon, the trailer showcases a rapid assault on an enemy core. While Sparrow uses her abilities to rain arrows on the defending minions, Gideon uses mysterious portals to unleash devastating attacks that transport objects – and eventually himself – across the arena.

The assault moves swiftly, but grinds to a halt when the powerful Steel and Grux come to defend the core. Steel’s ‘Force Shield’ suddenly restricts the speed and power of the attackers’ abilities, while Grux inflicts massive damage with ‘Smash & Grab’ and ‘Shell Shock’ attacks.

While Steel and Grux appear to have the upper hand as the action draws to a close,

WWE SmackDown 10/12/15 Recap and Review – Ambrose and Owens contract signing, eight-man tag, Reigns vs. Del Rio and more

Three nights away from the TLC pay-per-view, WWE SmackDown arrived in Jacksonville, Fl with Roman Reigns once again at the centre of the show. He competed against Alberto Del Rio in the night’s opener before taking part in an eight-man main event. Elsewhere, Dean Ambrose and Kevin Owens signed the contract for their upcoming title match. It’s the SmackDown report…

1. Roman Reigns vs. Alberto Del Rio

Unusually for a WWE programme, the show kicked off with some in-ring action. Del Rio had the entire League of Nations behind him, whilst Reigns was accompanied by Dean Ambrose and The Usos. Del Rio punished Reigns for the majority of the match in a decent, if entirely unremarkable, encounter. There’s no real chemistry between Reigns and Del Rio, with the two men simply blandly competent. The match never got a finish, with a wild brawl erupting at ringside. This didn

WWE Raw 23/11/15 Recap and Review – Reigns vs. Rusev, Divas Championship rematch, New Day anniversary celebration and more

WWE leaned hard on a country music theme as it brought Raw to Nashville, Tennessee on the heels of an eventful Survivor Series show. The Authority added several new members to its swelling and powerful ranks, whilst Charlotte and Paige did battle once again with the Divas Championship on the line. It’s the Raw Report…

1. The Authority Congratulates Sheamus

The Authority opened the show in smug fashion, patting themselves on the back for their well-orchestrated crowning of Sheamus as the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion at Survivor Series. Triple H slammed Roman Reigns for failing to take up the offer of a position within The Authority before introducing his new, hand-picked titleholder Sheamus. Sheamus cut a promo about how crowd chants could not ruin his moment, before Reigns arrived and demanded a rematch on Raw. Triple H refused and left the ring. Out of nowhere, Rusev appeared and kicked Reigns in the face,

WWE SmackDown 5/11/15 Recap and Review – Owens vs. Ambrose, Wyatts in elimination match and more

WWE has been on a roll in recent weeks with their B-show, producing some great television. The show came to Colorado Springs, Co this week, with the injury to Seth Rollins looming large over the events of a show taped before the WWE was hit by this dramatic event. It’s the SmackDown Report…

1. Alberto Del Rio vs. Neville

Zeb Colter and Alberto Del Rio cut a promo about the new nation of MexAmerica. They promised that there was no room in their new country for hate and that they would eradicate the haters. Their dynamic continues to be bizarre, but interesting in equal measure. This was a very nice match, with plenty of back and forth momentum, showcasing Neville’s talents as well as Del Rio’s. An errant move to the top rope from Neville opened the door for Del Rio to hit his devastating double stomp in

WWE Raw 02/11/15 Recap and Review – Survivor Series elimination match, Wyatt showcases power, Divas number one contender match and more

With Roman Reigns entrenched as the new number one contender to Seth Rollins’ WWE Championship, Raw rolled into Denver, Co with Survivor Series on its mind. Elsewhere, Bray Wyatt showcased the new power of his evil family and a new number one contender was crowned in the women’s division.

Roman Reigns kicked off the show by laying into Seth Rollins for “brown-nosing” the Authority. He said that there wasn’t “a force on Earth” that could prevent him from becoming the champion. Rollins appeared on the ramp and reminded Reigns of how he scuppered his WrestleMania moment by cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase, ensuring that Reigns would always be second best. Reigns urged Rollins to come down to the ring and see which of them was truly the best, which brought out the Authority. Stephanie McMahon teased a possible title match during Raw, but immediately took

WWE SmackDown 22/10/15 Recap and Review – Reigns and Ambrose vs. New Day, Tyler Breeze debuts, Rollins vs. Cesaro and more

After a star-studded Raw, WWE brought SmackDown to Austin, TX on their final TV stop before the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event. That show’s biggest matches all got their fair share of the spotlight on the blue brand, with the addition of a major Nxt debut. It’s the SmackDown Report…

The show kicked off with Seth Rollins backstage, who was confronted by Corporate Kane, back from the suspension that kept him off Raw. He warned Rollins not to feign injury tonight because the Demon might be waiting for him and informed the champion that he would be kicking off the show. Kane then met the New Day in the corridor and they were in an uncharacteristically glum mood, following Xavier Woods’ beating at the hands of the Dudley Boyz on Raw. After a dreadfully unfunny trombone gag, Kane booked the tandem of Big E and Kofi Kingston

WWE Raw 12/10/15 Recap and Review – Lumberjack Match, Ziggler answers open challenge, Reigns vs. Strowman and more

WWE expected a raucous crowd as they brought Raw to the typically rowdy Chicago, Il. Kane was in charge of the show, which caused a major headache for WWE Champion Seth Rollins. Meanwhile, John Cena issued another Us Championship Open Challenge and Roman Reigns squared off with Wyatt Family powerhouse Braun Strowman. It’s the Raw Report…

The show opened with Kane on the phone to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, who were running late at the airport. They handed control of the show over to a very chirpy Kane, urging him to put aside his issues with Seth Rollins until Hell in a Cell and be a professional. Kane immediately summoned a stage manager and told her to inform Rollins that he would have a match tonight – a lumberjack match against Kane himself. This was an intriguing way to open the show, even though it seemed rather unlikely that

WWE SmackDown 09/10/15 Recap and Review – Wyatts take on Reigns and Orton, King Barrett returns, Ziggler vs. Big E and more

WWE brought SmackDown to Philadelphia, Pa this week, advertising a massive tag team match instalment in the Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt turf war. Elsewhere, King Barrett made his return to the ring for the blue brand. It’s this week’s SmackDown Recap…

New Day came out to start the show with a recap of their decimation of John Cena, Dolph Ziggler and the Dudley Boyz on Raw. They gloated about their actions before running down the Philadelphia Eagles and claiming that the Dudleys had “politicked” their way into another title match at Hell in a Cell. Dolph Ziggler turned up and told “the Three Stooges of the WWE” that he would face Big E tonight. New Day teased the numbers game advantage, but Ziggler introduced the Dudleys to even the odds at ringside.

1. Big E vs. Dolph Ziggler

As usual, it was Xavier Woods at ringside who was the star attraction here,

WWE SmackDown 01/10/15 Recap and Review – Rollins and Kane clash, Reigns challenges Wyatt, Intercontinental Title rematch and more

Hot on the heels of an eventful Monday Night Raw, WWE brought SmackDown to Albany, NY with a starry episode of the B-show. WWE Champion Seth Rollins continued to tangle with the Demon Kane, as the Director of Operations stepped up his bizarre mind games. It’s the SmackDown Report…

The show opened with a recap of the collision between Seth Rollins and the Demon Kane on Raw. Rollins then emerged, infuriated that everyone seemed to be falling for Corporate Kane’s cover-up of his other, more violent persona. Kane came out, limping on crutches and said Rollins had re-injured his ankle, but the champion wasn’t having it and informed Kane that he had a severe personality disorder. The Director of Operations retorted that it was, in fact, Rollins who needed help. Kane booked a match, in which Rollins and New Day would take on the Dudley Boyz and the Demon.

How WWE Should Have Booked Monday Night Raw (28/09/15)

In Flickering Myth’s weekly feature, Jackson Ball looks at the booking decisions made on WWE’s Monday Night Raw, and how they could (and perhaps should) have been made differently…

After last week’s shenanigans, we are starting to get a fairly good idea of what feuds and rivalries are going to take shape over the next few weeks, in the lead up to the next pay-per-view event: Hell in a Cell.

This week’s edition of Monday Night Raw continued to add fuel to that build-up. Admittedly, there were a few stellar booking choices present in this week’s episode, most notably involving the likes of Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt. That being said, here are a couple of booking decisions that hit a little wide of the mark…

The divas were out in full force this Monday, with yet another 6-woman tag match.

WWE SmackDown 24/09/15 Recap and Review – Rollins vs. Ambrose, Divas on the mic, big tag team action and more

After being dragged to hell by Kane on Raw, Seth Rollins wanted answers as WWE brought its blue brand to Corpus Christi, TX. Elsewhere, the fallout from Paige’s betrayal rocked the women’s division. It’s the SmackDown Report…

The show opened with a recap of the current main event storyline, including Kane’s amusing split personality antics from Raw, which sadly culminated in the hackneyed spot where Kane emerges through the ring.

It was Kane who was in the ring to open SmackDown, in his new, chirpy Authority persona. The obvious post-production cheers were even more jarring than usual. He announced Kevin Owens and Rusev vs. Ryback and Dolph Ziggler for later in the show, along with Roman Reigns vs. Luke Harper in which both men’s partners would be banned from ringside. At that point, an angry Seth Rollins emerged. Kane continued to play ignorant to the

WWE Raw 21/09/15 Recap and Review – Rollins vs. Cena rematch, Divas division in flux, Corporate Kane returns and more

After an explosive Night of Champions pay-per-view, WWE brought Monday Night Raw to Laredo, TX to deal with the fallout from the big show, with three new champions to bed in and the spectre of Kane hanging over the head of WWE Champion Seth Rollins. It’s the Raw Recap…

In a pleasant surprise, it was not Seth Rollins or some permutation of the Authority who opened this week’s Raw, but the Wyatt Family, in a refreshing spotlight moment for one of WWE’s most consistent current undercard feuds. Wyatt spoke of how he had tried to warn Roman Reigns with his words, but evidently hadn’t spoken loud enough. He spoke of how he had torn the idol from Mount Olympus and brought him to his knees. Reigns then arrived, alone, and challenged Wyatt to a fight, without the two big men. The two men brawled, but Harper and Strowman soon got involved.

WWE Night of Champions Recap and Review – Rollins pulls double duty, Reigns and Ambrose reveal partner, Divas Title on the line and more

WWE rolled into Houston, TX with a tonne of heat behind them for their annual Night of Champions pay-per-view, at which every title in the company was on the line. Seth Rollins had a mountain to climb, with matches against both John Cena and Sting laying in his path to immortality. Elsewhere, the Dudleys were set to challenge for the tag belts and Charlotte had her second bite at the Divas Title. Here’s the Night of Champions report…

This was a big show for WWE, with Night of Champions marking the first pay-per-view in which WWE had to book Seth Rollins as a double champion, holding both the World Heavyweight Championship and the United States Title. Rollins was set to face two future Hall of Fame stars, in Sting and John Cena, in a back-to-back double main event – a bizarre booking decision to stack odds against a heel. A

WWE SmackDown 17/09/15 Recap and Review – Rollins and Sheamus team up, Big Show vs. Cesaro, Ziggler vs. Owens and more

Only days before WWE returns to pay-per-view with Night of Champions, the company brought its secondary show to Little Rock, Ar. After being left in retreat by Sting and John Cena on Raw, Seth Rollins looked to regain some momentum heading into his double duty appearance on Sunday. It’s the SmackDown Recap…

Seth Rollins made his way to the ring to open the show, looking every bit as arrogant as always as the announcers told us that he would team with Mr Money in the Bank, Sheamus, to take on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns in the main event of the show. He vowed to break John Cena’s spirit at Night of Champions and promised that he would show Sting why he is the past and Rollins is “the now”. Rollins also said he would make even more history by teaming with Sheamus, despite the Irishman’s threat to his championship.

WWE SmackDown 10/09/15 Recap and Review – Lumberjack match, women’s rematch, Wyatts on the warpath and more

With less than two weeks until Night of Champions, SmackDown rolled into Wilkes-Barre, Pa with momentum-building on its mind. The show was a little light on major in-ring action and angles, but the focus was placed squarely on a number of intriguing midcard feuds for a nice change of pace. It’s time for the SmackDown recap…

The Wyatt Family made their eerie entrance to open SmackDown, with Bray Wyatt flanked by Luke Harper and new monster Braun Strowman. Wyatt spoke about how Roman Reigns is a smart man who actually doesn’t care about the fans. He added that Dean Ambrose is “cursed with loyalty” for Reigns. He issued a threat to anyone who dared to team with the two Shield men, showing the footage of their assault on Randy Orton from this week’s Raw. This was a great look at Wyatt, who continues to get even better on the microphone.

'WWE Raw': Brock Lesnar Is the Hometown Hero, Seth Rollins Is the Cure

'WWE Raw': Brock Lesnar Is the Hometown Hero, Seth Rollins Is the Cure
"Go-home show" had more than one meaning in Minneapolis. Not only was it the final Monday night before SummerSlam (in case that failed to register amid Triple H and Stephanie's lengthy opening address), it was also Brock Lesnar's chance to bask in the adulation of his adopted home state. Side effect: The Undertaker got pooped all over, as did the Divas and anyone else in the final few segments who wasn't Brock Lesnar.

But hey, let's not dwell on the more controversial aspects of a fine show.

After all,
