The Undertaker Makes Rare Appearance With Michelle McCool


The Undertaker has made a rare public appearance with his wife. He was pictured with Michelle McCool at the CC4C 4th Annual Micro Marathon 4 Inspiration in Bee Cave, Texas. It is a 2.62 mile family fun run, which raises funds for sick children. WWE superstar Mark Henry was also taking part.

Taker appearing in public with Michelle is something that they both try to kayfabe a little, and she’ll often only post obscure and teasing comments / pictures on her own instagram. But the above photo came from the charity instagram, which treated the scene like any normal family fun run. It wasn’t like Taker had any big celebrity status at the event, he was there as Mark Calaway.

He’s currently in the best shape he’s been in a long time, and is set to wrestle his third match of 2015 at October’s Hell In A Cell.

6 Reasons The Rock Vs Rusev Must Happen At WrestleMania 31


Last night’s Raw saw the shock return of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, electrifying those in attendance in Brooklyn and surprising millions (and millions!) of his fans across the globe. Accepting Rusev’s open challenge to the locker room, Rocky cut a typically mocking promo and knocked the Super-Athlete clean out of the ring. Rusev has been on a tear since his slight gimmick change back in May. After announcing his relocation from Bulgaria to Russia and dropping his first name, he’s made relatively short work of Big E. Langston, Jack Swagger and Mark Henry in a trio of one-sided feuds. With current rival Big Show out of the picture last night, his reign of dominance looked set to continue until the Brahma Bull strode to the ring.

With the Hell In A Cell PPV rapidly approaching and a very empty card to fell, it might be

'WrestleMania XXX' preview: Prepare for Sunday with a trip down the WWE Network rabbit hole

This Sunday is the biggest day on the calendar year for those of us who still prefer this Steve Austin over the one from The Six Million Dollar Man and who still get the urge to patriotically tear off our shirts whenever this terrible Rick Derringer song kicks in. It’s WrestleMania XXX (that’s XXX as in “30,” not in porn terms), and it’s airing live from New Orleans on Sunday night.

I’m particularly excited for this iteration of the show thanks to the development that has completely re-aligned the way I watch and think about the WWE’s theatrical grappling arts.

Review: WWE: Best Pay-Per-View Matches 2013

With 2013 now receding in the rear view mirror, it’s time for the customary retrospectives to begin appearing on the shelves, and the first one out of the WWE stable is Best PPV Matches 2013, which as you might expect does exactly what it says on the tin. Well, almost.

My one minor gripe with the WWE and their annual PPV retrospectives is that they don’t cover the full calendar year. Though they’ve thoughtfully included a match from the, at time of writing, unreleased Hell in a Cell DVD/Blu-ray (due later this month, on 27th January), there’s nothing from either Survivor Series or TLC, and so the pedant in me has issues with it technically being the best of 2013 (particularly given the importance of the title unification bout between John Cena and Randy Orton at the latter). I could understand if they were rushing it out for

‘WWE Hell in a Cell 2013′ Blu-ray Review

  • Nerdly
WWE’s Hell in a Cell is a pay per view that I’ve never really got on board with, the idea of hosting two cell matches in one night, every year, kind of saturated the use of the cell for me, a match that was normally kept locked away for special occasions was being wheeled out for a show every year. Still, the events have produced some interesting matches and this event, on paper, sounded like it would be decent too.

The results of the matches are:

Cody/Goldust beat The Uso’s and The Shield to retain the WWE Tag Titles. The Miz had a brawl with The Wyatt Family and Kane returned. Fandango and Summer Rae pinned The Great Khali and Natalya. Big E Langston beat Dean Ambrose via count-out. Cm Punk beat Ryback and Paul Heyman in a Hell in a Cell match. Los Matadores beat The Real Americans.

‘WWE: Best PPV Matches 2013′ Blu-ray Review

  • Nerdly
Relive another historic year with The Best Pay-per-view Matches 2013, featuring over 15 of WWE’s most intense matches from its biggest events! The Rock returns to finally bring home the WWE Championship for the first time in ten years. Cm Punk tries to extinguish Undertaker’s Streak in front of over 80,000 screaming fans. Triple H attempts to tame The Beast, Brock Lesnar. John Cena battles back from injury to win the World Heavyweight Championship, and much more!

The whole idea of a annual release containing hand-picked matches from pay-per-view shows throughout the course of the previous year is a good one, providing fans who might not buy the shows or collect each DVD release a chance to see what WWE consider to be the best matches they’ve promoted within a calender year.

There are bound to be strong years and weaker ones in wrestling, and 2013 was a mixed bag, which

‘WWE Raw’ Review & Results (9.12.13)

  • Nerdly
Welcome to this week’s results and review write up of WWE Raw, the flagship show of the biggest sports entertainment company in the world.

So, tonight is a special “Slammy Awards” themed Raw, with awards being given out throughout the evening in a variety of categories, including “Superstar of the Year”, “Rookie of the Year”, “Diva of the Year” and “Match of the Year”. So let’s get going shall we?

The show begins, live from Washington, with local boy, and most-over guy in WWE, Daniel Bryan, making his way to the ring to a monster pop and thousands of “yes” chants from the fans in attendance. His opponent tonight is the dancing, silk shirt wearing, former Johnny Curtis, Fandango, who is accompanied by the lovely Summer Rae. The match isn’t a long one, but allows both men to get some offence in before the inevitable victory of Bryan.

'WWE Raw' Dec. 9: Daniel Bryan dominates the Slammy Awards and the show

Previously on: The WWE Championship and World Heavyweight Championship will be unified at "TLC," when Randy Orton takes on John Cena. Cm Punk got put in a match against all of The Shield, while Daniel Bryan will face all three members of The Wyatt Family.

The big news: The only real news was the Slammy Awards, which WWE spent a lot of "Raw" on. Slating the Slammys as the go-home to a pay per view seems like a bad idea, because the storylines need to be focused on. That just wasn't in the cards though.

Really, the only feud that got attention was the title unification match, which makes sense. It was done with a Championship ascension ceremony, which really only means the two belts were attached to a rope and hoisted into the rafters of the building. They did so with every former WWE and World Champion under contract standing in the ring,

WWE Raw Review: Who Is in Charge Here?

You might’ve noticed that last week I took a little sabbatical from my review of WWE programming. This was for one really good reason, The Big Show lawsuit storyline. This thing is so riddled with logic holes that it almost drove me crazy.

WWE Raw from Manchester, England was definitely one of those nights. Two weeks from Survivor Series, it seems the focus of the night was more on who was or wasn’t in charge then the pay-per-view itself. A few months ago, I wrote an article on how I thought authority figures on wrestling programming needed to go away. This night definitely proves my point.

The night opens with Randy Orton coming out saying that the authority of Triple H and Stephanie are on vacation. The face of the WWE says he’s in charge. Kane, the new director of operations says he’s in charge and

WWE 2K14 Review

As a child who grew up during the 1990s, pro wrestling was a pretty big deal in my life for a while. From around 1994 to 2002, every Monday I would park myself down in front of the TV and make sure to catch Monday Night Raw. There’s just something about watching angry, colorful characters beat the tar out of each other that really appeals to kids.

In addition to these weekly staples of programming, one Sunday a month would feature a pay-per-view with a clever title such as King Of The Ring or Survivor Series. While these certainly were big events that saw feuds end and titles change hands, the biggest of all events was WrestleMania. I remember watching countless WrestleManias while being in awe at the sheer spectacle of it all and being amazed at the classic matches being put on display. Being able to relive these epic moments

‘WWE Straight to the Top: Money in the Bank Anthology’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Hosted by The Miz, the compilation features every Money in the Bank Ladder Match in history. The match debuted at WrestleMania 21 in 2005, quickly becoming a WrestleMania tradition and in 2010 proved so popular that it was given its own annual PPV event. Several top Superstars have been Money in the Bank winners including John Cena, Kane, Edge, Cm Punk (twice!), Rob Van Dam and many more. 11 of the first 12 winners have used the match as a springboard to winning a championship, and several times the match has helped a Superstar who has never win a World Championship break through to claim their first. Much like the Royal Rumble Match, the Money in the Bank match represents a golden opportunity for a Superstar to achieve immortality, and its entire lineage is presented here.

It is nice to see this match receive its own box-set release. The “Money in the Bank” concept

‘WWE Raw’ Results & Review (4.11.13)

  • Nerdly
Welcome to this week’s results and review of Monday Night Raw.

The show begins with Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality” hitting and Cm Punk making his way down the aisle to a tremendous pop from the fans. We see a short clip of last week’s Raw when Punk and Daniel Bryan were separately attacked by The Wyatt Family. The Wyatt’s make their entrance and Punk’s opponent tonight is Luke Harper, who is accompanied by Bray and Rowan. Harper uses his brawling to keep Punk down, while Punk attempts to get technical, only to be beaten down by the unorthodox offence of Harper. The fans chant “Cm Punk” as Harper continued the beat-down on the “straight-edge saviour”. Punk regains control with a dive from the ring to the outside onto Harper. Punk finds himself on the ground again, being choked by the boot of Luke Harper,

WWE: 10 Longest United States Championship Reigns Of The Modern Era

Dean Ambrose recently passed the 160-day mark for his reign as the WWE United States Champion, making his the tenth longest since the belt was revived in 2003.

With over a decade of title history now behind it in the WWE, we look back at ten superstars that have enjoyed a good run as Us champ.

10. Dean Ambrose

The current holder burst onto the scene last year as part of The Shield. Partners Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns helped Ambrose go on a tear. They attacked big names like The Big Show, Kane, Randy Orton and Sheamus before becoming the bodyguards of power couple Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, also known as The Authority.

Ambrose’s Us title reign began when he defeated Kofi Kingston at Extreme Rules 2013. Since then it has been a case of keeping hold of the gold at all costs. Ambrose took a count out victory over

WWE Raw Review: Is The Devil In The Details?

For the third pay-per-view in a row, WWE had a lot to answer for coming out of Miami. Sure, they gave some definitive endings but they weren’t exactly heavenly when they came to logic. Shawn Michaels was once again thrust into controversy as the special guest referee crowning a new WWE champion and Randy Orton, Cm Punk gets his hands on Paul Heyman and crew and John Cena return miraculously after two months and became the World Heavyweight Championship holder for the third time. But in the end was that enough to make Satan’s structure interesting again? Or was Raw, much like the pay-per-view in forgetting the devil is all in the details again.

The show opens with John Cena coming out to the live crowd in Orlando very hyped up. The new champion says that he had his doubters pointing out Jbl at ringside. But Cena goes

‘WWE Raw’ Results & Review (28.10.13)

  • Nerdly
We’re 24 hours removed from WWE Hell in a Cell 2013. Welcome to this week’s write-up of WWE Raw.

The show begins with a video package showing Daniel Bryan being kicked in the mouth by Shawn Michaels and losing to Randy Orton, who became the new WWE Champion.

John Cena is welcomed back as the New World Champion, and the fans, as they have for ten years now, are very mixed. A lot of boos from the adults in the audience, but the kids are having fun seeing the pink-shirt wearing hero back on television. I wish I could echo their cheers, but sadly I am not too happy about Cena’s return. I will say though, it does add some “oomph” to the World Title, being around Cena’s shoulder. The announcers put Cena over like their lived depend on it. Cena takes the microphone and proclaims that he’s back.

WWE: 5 Former Partners Of Tag Team Champions Goldust & Cody Rhodes

Reigning WWE Tag Team Champions Goldust and Cody Rhodes are no strangers to tasting doubles gold. Both have held prestigious tag titles before.

These half-brothers, one bizarre, the other dashing, are exciting fans the world over with their current run. On air, WWE commentators have referred to it as a “Cinderella story.”

Since defeating The Shield at the Battleground pay-per-view Cody and Goldust have been on a roll. In a rematch on Raw they captured the belts and then defended them at the next monthly event Hell In A Cell in a Triple Threat match also involving The Usos.

With the Rhodes family now set to feud with Zeb Colter’s Real Americans (Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro) after they beat them on Raw this week only time will tell how long their reign will last.

If, like us, Goldust gives you a sense of nostalgia for wrestlers of yesteryear

WWE Hell In A Cell Review: 5 Things We Learned

Proof, as if proof were needed, that Hell In A Cell is one of the WWE’s most dangerous events of the year came with the crowning of two new world champions in Miami.

Coming into this late October pay-per-view wrestling fans wondered whether Daniel Bryan or Randy Orton would walk out of Satan’s structure with the richest prize in the business.

The WWE Championship has been vacant – what was wrong with that terminology instead of a corporate business word like abeyance by the way – for over a month now. Hell In A Cell matches have always been designed to bring finality to feuds.

Who would have the last word? What role would WWE’s Chief Operating Officer Triple H have in proceedings? Could the integrity of the Showstopper Shawn Michaels be called into question as special referee?

Would Hbk’s relationship as the trainer of Bryan and his

'WWE Raw' Oct. 28: Randy Orton's championship celebration, Daniel Bryan gets revenge

The "Hell in a Cell" fallout: "Hell in a Cell" went off the air Sunday with an ending that left many fans confused and disappointed. Randy Orton left the ring as WWE Champion, after Shawn Michaels superkicked Daniel Bryan. That's not what referees are supposed to do.

Elsewhere, John Cena beat Alberto Del Rio to become World Heavyweight Champion in his first match back from injury and Cm Punk finally got his revenge on Paul Heyman, caning him high above the cell and putting him to sleep.

The big news: The main focus of "WWE Raw" was Randy Orton's championship celebration. After all, he's the man the Authority (the silly name Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have given themselves) want as the face of the company.

The celebration was set up as almost an exact replay of the night after "SummerSlam," with the locker room on the stage while The Shield guarded the ring.
