Update on the Vince McMahon Documentary, “Pandemonium”


It had been previously reported that a movie about the life and career of Vince McMahon, entitled “Pandemonium,” is currently being written.

According to a new report from PWInsider, the updated screenplay has been completed and turned into the studio. Should it be approved, it will then be forwarded to Bradley Cooper and his team. Cooper is scheduled to be playing the role of McMahon in the film.

From the report:

The plan is to begin filming in the Spring of 2018, but that has always been contingent on getting casting completed and a final, approved shooting script in place.

McMahon was last seen on WWE Programming on the September 12, 2017 episode of “Smackdown Live.” He was brutally attacked by Kevin Owens, and you can see a clip of that below:

Also from the report:

The script to Pandemonium was originally written by Craig A. Williams (who wrote Disney’s live action Underdog adaptation few years back) back in 2015 and has undergone several drafts. The belief was that once WWE Studios became involved with the project, the existing script would undergo heavy rewrites to remove some of aspects of the film that the McMahon family would not be happy with.

Editor’s Opinion:

I will be one of the first people in line to see this movie.

Will you see “Pandemonium” when it is released?

Cesaro on How Much He Has Left in Him and Being a Tag Team Wrestler vs. Singles Wrestler


Former Raw Tag Team Champion Cesaro was recently a guest on 102.5 Hot Country KDY where he spoke about the differences between being a tag team wrestler and a singles competitor, and how much he has left in him.

Cesaro has been an accomplished wrestler in WWE both in as a singles competitor- winning the United States Championship and the inaugural Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner- and as a tag team competitor- working with talent including Jack Swagger, Tyson Kidd and now former WWE Champion Sheamus.

On the differences between the two, Cesaro had the following to say:

“There’s a huge difference. [In a match] by yourself, you can do whatever you want. But if you have somebody or a partner that you have to do that with, you have to have chemistry, you have to understand each other, you have to be on the same page, you have to get along. It’s all [of those things], and if you find somebody that can be a good teammate, that stuff just builds, and by the end, you can do it finely. That’s kind of where me and Sheamus arrived at, and it’s very satisfying to get to that level, that it happens naturally.”

Cesaro was asked how long he believes he has left in WWE as a competitor. Cesaro gave an answer they probably didn’t expect, saying:

“I just try to think day by day. Because, to me, if you think too long ahead, you no longer enjoy the moment. And that’s a problem that a lot of people have nowadays. They always reminisce about they had, and then they look forward to what they’ll have in the future [that they] forget about the moment. I just try to enjoy the moment, and see how long I can do this. I’m feeling great, and the best shape I’ve ever been. That’s another goal of mine to always be in the best shape, and let’s just wait and see. As long as I’m having fun, I’ll keep doing it.”

With H/T to WrestlingInc for the transcription.

You can view his recent match against WWE Raw Tag Team Champion Jason Jordan on the first ‘Raw‘ of 2018 below.

Impact Wrestling Knockout Sienna Hospitalized During Tapings


Impact Wrestling Knockout Sienna revealed via her Twitter account that she was hospitalized during the recent TV tapings for the company.

Sienna explained in the tweet that she had to pay a visit to the hospital during the tapings as she suspected she had either a displaced rib or potentially a collapsed lung.

What she found out definitely wasn’t reassuring. The former Impact Knockouts Champion explained that doctors found a blood clot in each of her lungs- which is a serious issue.

Sienna continued by announcing that she won’t be wrestling any time soon but will be still making appearances whilst she raises money for the Undie Run.

In typical savage fashion, she joked that she would be judging everyone in the hospital, ending her message with the hashtag #PinkiesUp.

Here is the tweet she put out:

I went to the hospital during tapings suspecting a displaced rib or collapsed lung.

Turns out I have a blood clot in each lung.

I won’t be wrestling right now, but I’m still making appearances, raising money for the Undie Run… & judging everyone in this hospital. #PinkiesUp pic.twitter.com/mDNkjfg2t0

— Sienna the Savage ? (@Sienna) January 17, 2018

We are unsure at this time how long the former Champion will be out for- but Wrestling Rumors would like to extend our well wishes and prayers to Sienna during this time. We hope she’ll be up to her regular savageness soon.

You can see a discussion with Sienna below where she explains how her first day with Impact Wrestling went.

Details on the Impact Wrestling Twitch Channel (Shows, Content, Etc.)


Impact Wrestling has issued a press release announcing their upcoming Twitch channel and the content to be provided on it.

To summarize the press release- Impact will launch today (Wednesday, January 17) on Twitch and will have content live 24/7. This means the channel will always be online, similarly to the WWE Network which has a 24/7 feed.

After Impact Wrestling on Pop this week, fans can visit the Twitch channel immediately to view the debut of Barbed Wire Massacre III. This match is billed as being “too violent for TV” and will feature the team of oVe and Sami Callihan vs. LAX and Homicide.

According to the press release, Impact will provide exclusive content on Twitch. This includes monthly live events and house shows, lifestyle programming showcasing various aspects of a professional wrestler’s life outside of the ring which includes diets, workouts, relationships and travel.

One event confirmation so far is that Impact will air the live event from WrestleCon in New Orleans, Louisiana on Friday, April 6 at 9 p.m. CT.

Every Monday night, longtime Impact wrestling announcer Jeremy Borash will be live to host the Live Audio Wrestling (The LAW) podcast. As one may expect, this podcast will cover anything from the world of professional wrestling, feature special guest interviews, live calls, interaction with the Twitch chat, contests and prizes.

On Wednesday nights, returning Impact star Tyrus will host ‘Nuff Said. This show will include Tyrus’ take on professional wrestling, politics, sports and popular culture. His addition to the channel likely comes from his relationship with Fox as a contributor for their news.

On Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET, Impact announcer Josh Matthews will host Matthews’ Megacast which will essentially be a second screen perspective of what is happening on Impact as it airs.

When these programs aren’t running, the Twitch channel will air past and present episodes of the flagship show, Xplosion episodes, pay-per-view events and over 1,000 hours of original programming.

It is worth noting that the press release lists Hulk Hogan, Sting, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash, Jeff Jarrett, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and Bobby Roode as appearing in classic programming.

While not mentioned in the press release, fans who are invested in the Impact product and want to have more control over what they watch and when they watch it- you can sign up to the [free] Global Wrestling Network which is similar to the WWE Network. You can opt for a paid version as well, which offers a lot more control. You can find the trailer below.

[This post contains video, click to play]

If you would like to sign up to the Global Wrestling Network, you can do so here.

On the expansion to Twitch, Impact president Ed Nordholm had the following to say:

“Our expansion on Twitch marks another important milestone in our digital expansion. The interactive content and larger-than-life personalities of IMPACT Wrestling are a perfect fit for the platform, whose passionate communities have demonstrated an increased appetite for professional wrestling and live events. As we adapt to new content consumption methods, our partnership with Twitch gives us an opportunity to interact directly with our audience, while engaging and growing our fan base across the world.”

205 Live Results – January 16, 2018

205 Live
Date: January 16, 2018
Location: Laredo Energy Arena, Laredo, Texas
Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Vic Joseph

Welcome to the shortened version of the show as we’re now down to just half an hour thanks to Mixed Match Challenge (I need to send that show a Christmas card.). We’re coming up on the Royal Rumble with Enzo Amore defending the Cruiserweight Title against Cedric Alexander (again) so let’s get to it.

Opening sequence.

TJP vs. Gran Metalik


Rematch from last week where Metalik won and sent TJP into a tailspin. TJP runs him over for a very fast one and it’s off to a front facelock. Back up and Metalik hits a very high angle springboard armdrag as we see Kalisto watching backstage.

TJP is sent outside for a top rope Asai moonsault as things are starting to speed up a bit. They head inside again with Metalik trying….something off the ropes, allowing TJP to dropkick him in the back and out of the air. The slingshot hilo gives TJP two and we hit the chinlock.

With that not working, TJP ties him in the Tree of Woe, only to miss a baseball slide and hit the post. A superkick and a rope walk dropkick set up the rope walk elbow for a VERY close two. The Metalik Driver is countered but Metalik reverses the Detonation Kick into a rollup for the pin at 5:17.

Result: Gran Metalik b. TJP – Rollup (5:17)

Twice in a row.

[This post contains video, click to play]

Post break, TJP is livid again in the back and might be crying.

We look back at Hideo Itami attacking Jack Gallagher with Jack’s own umbrella last week.

Gallagher has been hearing Brian Kendrick’s face being broken over and over but now he wants to hear Itami scream. He’ll find Itami’s weakness and exploit it because he is now the man with a plan.

So that’s his plan.

[This post contains video, click to play]

Here are Cedric Alexander and Goldust for a chat. Goldust talks about how our lives are determined by opportunities. Some might say their friendship is curious but Cedric is a star on the cusp of a golden opportunity. Cedric digs that and Goldust calls him the DiCaprio to Goldust’s Scorsese.

Cue Enzo Amore and the Zo Train to say they deserve an Academy Award for acting all buddy buddy. Goldust doesn’t appreciate being called funny because the only clown he sees is right in front of him looking like a swamp duck. Threats are issued but Enzo says Goldust has to beat the entire Zo Train first. Goldust says bring it on.

Goldust vs. Zo Train

Drew Gulak (along with Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese) starts for the team and slaps Goldust in the face. An early hip attack puts Gulak down and it’s off to Daivari, who is atomic dropped for his efforts. The numbers game offers a distraction though and Daivari hammers Goldust from behind.

Nese comes in for the choking in the corner, followed by a hard running forearm. We hit the neck crank for a bit, only to have Nese miss a charge into the corner. It’s back to Gulak who eats a quick bulldog, followed by the snap powerslam for two. Nese knocks Goldust to the floor but dives onto Daivari by mistake. Cedric dives onto Enzo and the Final Cut ends Gulak at 4:00.

Result: Goldust b. Zo Train – Final Cut to Gulak (4:00)

That’s quite the destruction.

Mixed Match Challenge Results – January 16, 2018

Mixed Match Challenge Episode #1
Date: January 16, 2018
Location: Laredo Energy Arena, Laredo, Texas
Commentators: Michael Cole, Corey Graves, Beth Phoenix

This is a new concept for WWE as they’re airing on Facebook for the first time ever. In this case we have a tournament of mixed matches with the winners earning money for a charity. There will be twelve episodes with twelve teams vying for the money with one match a week. I have no idea what to expect here so let’s get to it.

No opening sequence here.

Renee Young and Byron Saxton are on the floor as hosts.

We get quick vignettes from both teams, basically saying they’re going to win.

We get some rapid fire vignettes from other teams, including Carmella eating pancakes and Nia Jax being presented with some lucky underwear.

First Round: Finn Balor/Sasha Banks vs. Shinsuke Nakamura/Natalya


Nakamura has an old Jim Neidhart Hart Foundation jacket, complete with the big shoulders. The women start things off and Natalya bails into the corner. It’s quickly off to the men who fight over a technical sequence.  It’s an early standoff as they’re playing this as even. Neither can get much control off an armbar so Nakamura tells him to COME ON.

That means another standoff and Balor throws up the Too Sweet sign. The women come in again and Sasha hits her pose before slapping Natalya in the face. Something like an atomic drop and a basement dropkick give Natalya two but Banks is right back with the double knees in the corner. Natalya bails to the floor so Sasha dives onto…Nakamura, who calmly puts her back on the apron. The second dive takes Natalya down but Sasha walks into the discus forearm, followed by the chinlock.

Hang on a second though as we look at Sami Zayn and Becky Lynch talking about the show. We hit the abdominal stretch with Natalya lifting the foot off the mat for some bonus pressure. Sasha flips her away without too much effort and brings Balor back in to speed things back up.

Nakamura kicks Balor in the head though and hits the running knee for two. Kinshasa is countered with the Sling Blade but Natalya breaks up the Coup de Grace. Sasha throws Natalya outside but Kinshasa is countered again, this time with Nakamura being sent into the post. Stereo basement dropkicks set up the Bank Statement to make Natalya tap at 12:48.

Result: Finn Balor/Sasha Banks b. Shinsuke Nakamua/Natalya – Bank Statement to Natalya (12:48)

Here’s what the winners had to say after their victory:

[This post contains video, click to play]

Next week: Big E./Carmella vs. Asuka/The Miz.

New Day is fired up and Carmella is in a washing machine.

Miz speaks English and Asuka shouts in Japanese before they both speak English.

Trish Stratus Confirmed for “Raw” 25th Anniversary


It’s time to rock and roll. We’re less than six days away before the “Monday Night Raw” 25th Anniversary show and that could make for some awesome moments. There’s already a host of names being added to the card but there’s always a bunch of names that could be added at the last minute. That’s the case with another name who is now confirmed for the show.

As announced in a video released on WWE’s YouTube channel, Trish Stratus will be appearing at the anniversary show. Stratus is a seven time Women’s Champion and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013. Her last match with the company was in 2011 in a mixed tag on “Monday Night Raw. Here’s the announcement:

[This post contains video, click to play]

Opinion: This is another name where you need to have her involved to really make this feel complete. Stratus was one of the most important stars in the history of the women’s division and having her around would make a big celebration like this all the better. I don’t know if she’ll be involved in WWE after this but just having her there once is a good idea.

Do you think Stratus will be involved in the Women’s Royal Rumble? Do you want her to be? Let us know in the comments below.

Rumor: Roman Reigns Linked to Steroid Distribution Ring in Miami


This could be bad. Like, really, really bad.

A new report from Bleacher Report is suggesting that Roman Reigns is being linked to a steroid distribution ring that took place in February 2017.

From the report:

Iron Addicts co-owner Richard Rodriguez ran a supplement company that the DEA said produced and sold anabolic steroids. In a criminal complaint, agents accused Rodriguez, 37, and wife Nancy, head of a nine-member steroid ring, of importing products from China, manufacturing steroids in an Arizona lab and distributing the drugs worldwide from a Miami P.O. Box.

In addition to Reigns Rodriguez named two other celebrities who were involved in the steroid ring, including movie star Mark Wahlberg.

You can see a clip of “the big dog” from his battle with the Miztourage on “Raw” below:

[This post contains video, click to play]

This is not the first time that Reigns has been linked to performance enhancing substances. He was suspended for violating WWE’s Wellness Policy back in the summer of 2016.

WWE has not commented at this time. We will continue to monitor this story and provide any updates as they become available to us.

Editor’s Opinion:

I don’t think that anything will come of this, as the investigation occurred over a year ago. However, the fact that Reigns is being brought up again could produce some serious problems down the road.

What do you think of Roman Reigns being investigated for steroid use? Leave us a comment below, or post a comment on our Facebook page!

New United States Champion Crowned on “Smackdown Live”


After a Canadian final. As of earlier this week, the United States Title tournament final was scheduled to be wrapping up at the “2018 Royal Rumble”. Tonight though, that was changed to the finals taking place next week. That wasn’t enough either though and the finals were held tonight, along with the semifinals. So who won?

Tonight on “Smackdown Live”, Bobby Roode won the tournament to become the new United States Champion. Roode defeated Jinder Mahal in the finals after pinning Mojo Rawley earlier in the night. Mahal advanced to the finals by defeating Xavier Woods. The tournament was necessary after former champion Dolph Ziggler vacated the title late last year.

Here’s how Roode got to the finals:

[This post contains video, click to play]

Opinion: This was the only way they could have gone and there’s nothing wrong with that. Roode was banged up coming into the finals and it made sense to have him win in the end to complete a good story. There’s a good chance this leads to Roode vs. a returning Ziggler for the title at the pay per view, even though they flew through the last three matches at a faster pace than necessary.

Do you like Roode as champion? If not, who should have won? Let us know in the comments below.

Smackdown Results – January 16, 2018

Smackdown
Date: January 16, 2018
Location: Laredo Energy Arena, Laredo, Texas
Commentators: Corey Graves, Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton

Please be better. The last few weeks haven’t been kind to Smackdown and I really could use a good episode to change things up a bit. The problem continues to be Daniel Bryan vs. Shane McMahon, which has dominated the show so strongly that it’s taking away from a lot of the other stories. Hopefully that starts to change tonight. Let’s get to it.


Here’s the New Day for an opening chat. Woods brings out the pancakes and stands behind a podium as all three do the tongue roll to announce Jinder Mahal’s Maharajah nickname. See, America is like a bunch of pancakes: made of flour, eggs and freedom. America is built up like Home Alone 1, 2 and 3. Big E: “Not so much with 3.” Woods talks about Jinder hating Home Alone and hating every one of you. The fans are against Jinder but the Singh Brothers come out to introduce Mahal.

US Title Tournament Semifinals: Jinder Mahal vs. Xavier Woods

The finals will now be next week instead of at the Royal Rumble. Mahal kicks him in the face to start and elbows a charging Woods in the jaw. A jumping knee gets two and we take a break. Back with Jinder holding him in a chinlock and Big E. throwing pancakes at the Singh Brothers. The fans want pancackes as Jinder forearms Woods down to the floor. Back in and a knee to the head gets two as we take a second break.

We come back again with Woods hitting a missile dropkick and winning a slugout. A discus punch drops Mahal and a Shining Wizard gets two. New Day goes after the Singh Brothers and chases the up the aisle, leaving us one on one. The top rope elbow misses though and Woods is whipped throat first into the bottom rope. The Khallas sends Mahal to the finals at 18:02.

Result: Jinder Mahal b. Xavier Woods – Khallas (18:02)

At a house show, Baron Corbin talked about knowing he’ll win the Royal Rumble because it’s just a fight and that’s what he does best.

Quick look at the media talking about Goldberg’s Hall of Fame induction.

AJ Styles dubs Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens as Kami and says he sees himself as being down 3-1 because Owens is like two people.

Carmella knows how to make history so she’ll win the Rumble.

Natalya has the catlike reflexes to win.

Tamina says she’ll win.

Lana promises to make it the Ravishing Rumble.

Naomi is going to make everyone feel the Glow.

Riott knows how to create chaos and no one can stop her.

Sarah Logan isn’t running from anything.

Liv Morgan is here to make history so she’ll do it at the Rumble.

Becky Lynch promises to win.

US Title Tournament Semifinals: Bobby Roode vs. Mojo Rawley

Roode shoves him around to start and hits the GLORIOUS pose. Back up and Mojo runs through Roode and complains at the referee for getting in his way. They head outside with Mojo hitting a long running charge to drive Roode into the barricade. We take a break and come back with Mojo putting on an abdominal stretch, though he does hit Roode in the ribs a few times.

Mojo asks Roode if he’s cracked a rib before hammering at said ribs. That’s rather cruel of him. Back up and Mojo misses a charge into the post, allowing Roode to hit the Blockbuster for two. The Glorious DDT is countered into a fireman’s carry faceplant (basically an F5 without the spin) for two. The running punch in the corner is blocked with some raised boots and Roode grabs the spinebuster. Roode hits the Glorious DDT to go to the finals at 13:13.

Result: Bobby Roode b. Mojo Rawley – Glorious DDT (13:13)

Post match the Singh Brothers come in to beat on Roode but are dispatched fairly quickly. Mahal comes out to say he’ll be champion next week. Roode wants to fight now but Mahal says on his time. Daniel Bryan pops up from behind and says the finals are on TONIGHT.

Randy Orton, in a ring in an empty arena, likes to be surrounded by chaos, so the Rumble is his match.

Charlotte/Becky Lynch/Naomi vs. Riott Squad

Charlotte suplexes Morgan for two to start and does her Figure Four neck lock flips to Riott. The Squad gets sent outside and we take a break. Back with Lynch being sent into Morgan’s knees for two and Liv grabbing the hair to cut off a hot tag attempt. Becky finally dives over and brings in Naomi to speed things up. The spear cuts Logan down but Riott kicks Naomi into the one kneed Codebreaker for the pin at 8:10.

Result: Riott Squad b. Charlotte/Becky Lynch/Naomi – Codebreaker to Naomi (8:10)

The Usos think Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin got together on Tag Team Tinder. They can’t remember which Uso is which though and get beaten down by Gable and Benjamin. Chad knows who they are: the former champions.

Long video on AJ Styles vs. Sami Zayn/Kevin Owens.

Shinsuke Nakamura says he’ll win. Is there a reason none of the big wrestlers are actually here tonight?

Next week: Rusev Day vs. Ascension.

US Title: Bobby Roode vs. Jinder Mahal

The title is vacant coming in, Roode’s ribs are banged up, there are no Singh Brothers and Shane McMahon/Daniel Bryan are at ringside. Feeling out process to start with Mahal’s cheap shot to the ribs being cut off. They head outside with Mahal driving the bad ribs into the barricade and getting in a few more shots as we take a break.

Back with Mahal bending the ribs around the post and then slapping on an abdominal stretch. Some knees to the ribs keep Roode down and Mahal puts a knee in the back.   Roode gets two off a sunset flip but a superkick gives Mahal the same to keep him in control. Bobby finally sends him outside for a clothesline from the apron as the crowd is just gone here. Back in and Mahal rolls through a high crossbody for two of his own, followed by a Blockbuster for the same. Roode’s spinebuster plants Mahal again and the Khallas is reversed into the Glorious DDT to make Roode the champion at 15:44.

Result: Bobby Roode b. Jinder Mahal – Glorious DDT (15:44)

The bosses present Roode with the title to end the show.

Results
Jinder Mahal b. Xavier Woods – Khallas
Bobby Roode b. Mojo Rawley – Glorious DDT
Riott Squad b. Charlotte/Becky Lynch/Naomi – Codebreaker to Naomi
Bobby Roode b. Jinder Mahal – Glorious DDT
