Great Balls Of Fire…Get Used To It

The Royal Rumble! Survivor Series! Summerfest! And, of course, the granddaddy of them all, Wrestlemania! WWE’s Big Four shows of the year. Events that can sell out based on their brand names alone.

Then you’ve got the second tier of shows like Money in the Bank, Hell in a Cell, Backlash, No Mercy.

Beneath those are Roadblock: End of the Line, WWE Fastlane. TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. Quite a lot further down, you have Capitol Punishment, Over the Limit, Fatal Fourway. And then, somewhere way down at the bottom, we have the newest WWE pay-per-view brand. WWE Great Balls of Fire. Which, let me check, yeah – they’re still calling it that.

'NCIS: New Orleans' Interview: Cch Pounder on Wade's Past, Sebastian's New Job and More

'NCIS: New Orleans' Interview: Cch Pounder on Wade's Past, Sebastian's New Job and More
NCIS: New Orleans' "End of the Line" is going to bring up painful memories from Wade's past when a gruesome copycat murder on a streetcar reopens a former case. BuddyTV spoke to Cch Pounder to find out what to expect from this case.

"It was really nice for me to do something other than move a dead body," the actress shared when teasing the episode that sees a different side of Wade. And speaking of doing something different, while she pointed out that the nature of the crossovers doesn't allow for them to use the MEs that much since they're mostly about the action and chasing down someone, she'd love to "ruffle Mark Harmon's feathers because he's always been a very calm and steady character."

Sundance Film Review: ‘Red Dog: True Blue’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Red Dog: True Blue’
Considering that the original “Red Dog” made a phenomenal $20.6 million at the Australian box office in 2011, winning a slew of awards before going on to become the best-selling domestic DVD of all time, a sequel was inevitable. Perhaps as a result of the death of the original Red Dog, Koko, in 2012, screenwriter Daniel Taplitz pitched the idea of an origin story to Stenders and producer Nelson Woss. The resulting film is built with the same sturdy, if somewhat obvious, template as its predecessor, following the outback adventures of a newly-acclimated city boy and his trusty Kelpie companion. Spots in the kids sidebars of the Sundance and Berlin fests ensures further exposure, and if the muscular Aussie box office since its Boxing Day debut is any indication, lightning could very well strike twice.

According to Outback folklore, there really was a Red Dog, and his plucky antics became the stuff of legend,

WWE Raw & Smackdown PPV crisis, Smackdown injury updates…

I’m pretty sure Smackdown just booked a pay-per-view for their last episode of the year.

Baron Corbin was added to Dolph Ziggler and Aj Styles’ WWE Championship match.

Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton will defend their tag team championships against Slater & Rhyno, The Usos and American Alpha.

The Women’s Championship is on the line between Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss.

And John Cena is making his WWE return for the first time in over two months.

With Raw being on Boxing Day next week, and holiday episodes generally drawing lower viewing figures, Smackdown might actually beat the red brand in the ratings for the first time since the split. And then, who knows, maybe Vince McMahon will start to apply some of the same consistent logic and storyline-based feuds on Monday Nights.

Aj Styles made his in-ring return to open the show against James Ellsworth. This was originally

Real reason Sasha Banks lost at WWE Roadblock, joke edited out of Raw…

Roadblock: End of the Line wasn’t just named that way so Michael Cole could annoy us every time he said it. It also referred to the end of the line for Charlotte and Sasha Banks’ long-running feud – one that’s been criticised for playing hot potato with the Women’s Championship belt at the expense of Raw’s other wrestlers. Since the belt was created in April this year, Charlotte and Sasha have had seven reigns between them. That’s 0.8 title changes a month, maths fans.

Big E. made fun of this passing back and forth of the belt in this week’s episode of Raw, with probably the best joke of the night. After Kofi Kingston mourned The New Day losing their tag team belts – which they held for just under 500 days – he pointed out that sometimes you have to lose to win in the long-run. For instance,

Monday Night Raw Reaction

  • LRM Online
Monday Night Raw is in the books. Following on the footsteps of Roadblock: End of the Line, what would be the state of the Raw brand as the days lead us to January 29th, 2017 and the Royal Rumble at the Alamo Dome?

The big news coming out of the show is the rematch for the WWE Universal Championship between champion Kevin Owens vs United States Champion Roman Reigns. Chris Jericho, in an attempt to prevent him from interfering in the match, will be suspended over the ring in a shark cage. Anyone with a cursory knowledge of wrestling will remember that stipulation matches like this seem to always find the person locked in said cage finding a way to get a weapon of some sort to the person he supports allowing them to get the victory. This just occurred at Nxt: Takeover Toronto when Paul Ellering was able to get

Ex-tna star to WWE, Samoa Joe injured, Mick Foley out of Raw…

Christmas is cancelled, everyone. Mick Foley won’t be on Raw to dress up as Santa Claus this holiday season.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Foley is taking some time off from WWE due to having hip replacement surgery. Pro Wrestling Sheet revealed that the Gm only appeared on last night’s Roadblock: End of the Line because he was already in Pittsburgh for a charity event, and he’ll also work the following episode of Raw, but then he won’t be back until January 2nd.

This most likely means no traditional appearance of Foley Claus. Which also means no angles where Alberto Del Rio runs him over.

Foley isn’t the only WWE star dealing with injuries. The Hype Bros won a battle royal to decide the Smackdown Tag Team Championships number 1 contenders last week, but Zack Ryder suffered a serious knee injury during the match.

Dwayne Johnson & Vince McMahon clashing over Wrestlemania 33, WWE Roadblock return…

Good news everybody: gravity has finally remembered Neville.

The man that creative forgot has been hovering just above Earth’s Stratosphere ever since late October, but on last night’s Roadblock: End of the Line pay-per-view, he turned up at the end of the Cruiserweight Championship three-way between Rich Swann, Tj Perkins and The Brian Kendrick.

Neville was last seen on WWE TV on Raw’s Halloween show in a multi-man Battle Royal. His last broadcast singles match was two weeks before that, losing to Bo Dallas. Back when Bo Dallas had a storyline.

Following Swann retaining his title at Roadblock, Neville walked down to the ring, all smiles, looked like he was going to congratulate the champion, but instead proceeded to kick everyone while the crowd chanted ‘Thank you, Neville’.

Neville being a part of the Cruiserweight division is something many have been arguing for since the title was brought back.

WWE Roadblock-End of the Line Results (Spoilers)

  • LRM Online
WWE: Roadblock-End of the Line is in the books. As a night that promised to close the chapter on some feuds on the Raw brand, for the most part the event didn’t disappoint. Here are the results of the matches and my thoughts.

Rusev vs Big Cass (Kickoff Show Match)

As I dreaded, this match was a dud thanks to Rusev. I could honestly care less about his character. While Lana is definitely a lovely woman, looks can only take you so far in the pro wrestling business. The entire setup for the match seemed stolen from 1980’s era wrestling. The only entertaining part of the match was the usual great mic work from Enzo before the match started. Thankfully it was over pretty quick. Lana distracts Enzo who gets taken out by Rusev. Big Cass checks on his friend only to get counted out. Big whoop. The

Preview and Predictions: WWE Roadblock- End of the Line

  • LRM Online
This Sunday on the WWE Network, Roadblock: End of the Line, a Raw exclusive special event, will air. As of this writing, there are seven matches advertised for the show. I’ll discuss the lineup for the show as well as who I think should win.

Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship

Roman Reigns has been in a tough spot for a while now. It’s clear based on how he’s been booked the past couple years that the WWE see money in his future. They want him to be the next big attraction. Yet the audience had not taken the bait, more often than not booing him out of the building. He’s not a bad performer at all in my opinion. The biggest issue I have with him is his lack of charisma. He’s boring on the mic. Not everyone has the

Brock Lesnar suspended from Ufc, ex-wwe star appears on Tna…

Last night saw the latest chapter in Matt Hardy’s Broken Universe on Tna – Total Nonstop Deletion. And, as expected, it was freaking insane.

Rockstar Spud was beaten by Matt Hardy’s infant child Maxel in a No Dq match (Senor Benjamin shocked Spud with a tazer), The Dilapidated Boat – not a wrestling gimmick, but an actual dilapidated boat – was beaten up by the Helms Dynasty, and Crazy Steve was blasted into the sky by a volcano for the main event finish.

Of all the wrestling acts teased for the special, Swoggle – who wrestled for WWE as Hornswoggle – was the only actual surprise. Odb made her Tna return, and the Rock and Roll Express turned up for the Tag Team Apocalypto match.

Broken Matt explained the special’s appeal on Twitter:

To those that appreciate the #BROKENBrilliance that was #Apocalypto, gracias. It wasn’t created for those who don’t.

WWE Roadblock: End of the Line 2016 Predictions

Liam Hoofe with his predictions of WWE Roadblock: End of the Line 2016…

WWE brings the 2016 PPV calendar to a close this Sunday with its Roadblock: End of the Line show. December PPV’s often suffer from everyone turning their attention to the Royal Rumble and Raw’s last event of the year has suffered from the same issues. The show feels incredibly rushed and there is very little hype surrounding the event.

That being said, the show has some fairly solid matches on it and should provide a good few hours entertainment one week before Christmas.

Here’s my look at the card, and who I think will win each encounter…

Rusev vs. Big Cass

This is actually the toughest match to call on the night, but personally I think it should go to the Bulgarian Brute.

Whilst many would disagree I have actually enjoyed this feud. Sure, the ‘comedy

Big ex-wwe star offered return contract, Aj Styles and Dean Ambrose injured?

Nia Jax doesn’t just squash the women’s division on Monday Night Raw. She also does it on Twitter.

After last night’s announcement that Sasha Banks would take on Charlotte yet again for the Women’s Championship – this time in an Iron Person match at Roadblock: End of the Line – Nia tweeted a picture of Bill Murray saying, “Well it’s Groundhog Day…again.”

Jax uses her Twitter account for a mixture of kayfabe, trash talking Nxt Women’s Champion Asuka, and real life stuff, like congratulating Blissy Face on her TLC win – so it’s hard to tell if the Groundhog Day tweet is an actual shoot or worked shoot. But she isn’t the only member of the roster to express frustration about how Raw is built just around two women. Both Summer Rae and Emma tweeted Mick Foley last week to just let their feud end.

Rumor: Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns plans leaked? Triple H worried about WWE star backstage…

I, like any cool cat, love to party.

It’s not uncommon for me to bust out a board game, have a few friends over, and stay up to – sometimes as late as – 11pm drinking beer. I know, I’m crazy.

Which is why I’ve always felt a particular kinship with party-mad Ric Flair. Those close to him have always said it’s difficult to separate Ric Flair the wrestling character from Ric Flair the 67 year old man. One of the main reasons he went to Tna after his brilliant 2008 retirement with Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 24 was because he needed the money to sustain his rather lavish lifestyle and four ex-wives.

And he shows no sign of slowing down. His podcast often turns to Flair’s sexual conquests – where he infamously claimed he’d slept with Halle Berry, something the actress has denied – and even his WWE appearances struggle

Roman Reigns pulled from WWE tour, Kevin Owens’ next WWE title feud confirmed?

Roman Reigns has been pulled from WWE’s current tour of Europe.

As you might have realised from Raw and Smackdown being broadcast from Scotland this week, WWE haven’t been in the States for the last fortnight or so. They’ve been touring various countries in Europe, living like rock stars and punching Chris Jericho in the face.

In response to a fan asking why Reigns wasn’t at the Raw show in Vienna, Austria, Dave Meltzer replied on Twitter:

Was pulled off the rest of the tour. won’t be at any shows rest of week. Don’t know reason but not an injury.

Speculation immediately jumped to Wellness Policy violations and injuries, but F4WOnline have since reported that Reigns has been pulled from the rest of the tour because of family commitments, which has caused the shows to be rearranged – suggesting it wasn’t a planned absence.

Review: 'The Americans' just aired its best episode ever
A review of tonight's The Americans coming up just as soon as I take my antibiotic and a nap... "It's never been this bad. It's worse every day." -Gabriel When Alias revealed that Sydney Bristow had been missing in action for two years, or when Battlestar Galactica leaped forward a year in mid-scene, the idea of a huge time jump was still shocking. Over a decade later — after shows as diverse as Lost, Desperate Housewives, Hannibal, Parks and Recreation, Masters of Sex, and Catastrophe have skipped ahead either between seasons or during them — the idea is just another commonly-accepted tool in any showrunner's tool kit, so that fans often predict their favorite series will use it as the only way out of a current story arc. The device has become so familiar, in fact, that where once it dropped jaws, it now risks eliciting shrugs. What makes the seven-month time

Diggers Takes the Last Train to the Most Remote Station in this Trailer

The Russian language film Diggers has a new trailer. The film takes place beneath Moscow, in an old subway station and route. Here, a train has missed its stop and people have gone missing; a search party has gone in to rescue the missing passengers, but they have found something malevolent in the dark. Diggers is from director Tikhon Kornev (Mamy). And, the film stars Roman Evdokimov and Anna Vasilyeva. The exciting trailer for the film is hosted here. The film looks similar to another, End of the Line (2007). Both films take place deep below ground. While it does not appear that there is a religious, doomsday cult in Diggers, both films feature a dangerous situation, in a confining subway tunnel. As well, a release date for Diggers is still forthcoming. But, it will be posted here, once announced. Release Date: Tba. Director: Tikhon Kornev. Cast: Roman Evdokimov, Anna Vasilyeva Alena Savastova,
