After His Surprise Royal Rumble Appearance, Rey Mysterio Is Heading To New Japan Pro Wrestling

It seems that Chris Jericho’s method of going from a recent WWE appearance and/or active participation to taking matches for the promotion from the Land of the Rising Sun. Rey Mysterio will soon be making his New Japan Pro Wrestling debut for the promotion’s return to the United States, coming right of the heels of his exciting and excellent appearance at last month’s Royal Rumble. During NJPW’s New Beginning event, the legendary cruiserweight appeared on screen to challenge another legendary cruiserweight, Jushin “Thunder” Liger, for a match at NJPW’s Strong Style Evolved in Long Beach on March 25th.

Long-time wrestling fans will know that this won’t be the first time Mysterio and Liger have gone one-on-one, as both men have faced off during their days in World Championship Wrestling (see above video for one of those matches in WCW). I think that the already sold out crowd and those watching at home will be very happy for this chance to watch it again. Who knows, maybe Mysterio can work out an appearance at the WWE’s Hall of Fame ceremony (maybe as an inductee) and at WrestleMania since those WWE events are two weeks after NJPW’s Strong Style Evolved? A man can dream…

Reminder: The IRS IS NOT Calling You…

Image result for irs scammer

Happy Tax Season everyone! It’s the time of year to go through all of your records, receipts, W-2’s, statements, donation documents and more to try to get some of that cash you overpaid to ol’ Uncle Sam. Unfortunately, it’s also that time of year where scammers will contact you via phone, email, and (in some cases) social media accounts (fo’ real, tho?), claim that they’re from the IRS and threaten that they’ll contact the authorities if you don’t pay up. SPOILER ALERT: the IRS is NOT calling you, they WILL NOT threaten you with police action, and they WILL NOT demand that you pay them money at that exact moment. File this warning under “a representative from Microsoft” and/or “a representative from Windows” will NEVER contact you about a computer issue you’re having; I had to educate THREE people at my church of that AGAIN this past week in UNDER a 24-HOUR PERIOD.

Donnie Yen confirms “Sleeping Dogs” Film Adaptation is in Production

Image result for sleeping dogs movie

Around this time last year, it was reported that Donnie Yen cast to star in a film based on the game Sleeping Dogs, developed by United Front Games and published by Square-Enix in 2012. To be perfectly honest, the casting of Yen as the game’s protagonist, Wei Shen, makes perfect sense; Sleeping Dogs is essentially a mash-up of numerous films in Yen’s filmography. Taking to Instagram without even saying (while somewhat implying) that the film was in shooting, Yen confirmed that this latest video game-to-film adaptation has entered production.

The “Trace” App by Morpholio Lets You Update Construction Design Changes On The Fly!

I recall in my days in the world of architecture as an intern where I’d go to job sites to document existing features, take measurements, and make changes to exiting construction documents on paper and digitally in AutoCAD — or even searching and finding the original construction documents in the school district archives because the school claimed to have lost them; I’m looking at you Alamo Heights ISD.  Anyway, more times than not you’d be on a project site and find  a problem that needed immediate attention. The problem is that once the project heads to the Construction Administration phase is NOT the best time for big design changes, new field conditions, client changes, errors, etc., etc…. Thankfully, Morpholio has updated their TracePro iPhone app, allowing users to alter job sites by simply “importing key components of the design process into the Construction Administration phase.” Continue reading The “Trace” App by Morpholio Lets You Update Construction Design Changes On The Fly!

Bray Wyatt got his Customer Service On by Helping A Stranger In Walmart Find His Action Figure…

Since his days in NXT, there’s never been a moment where I’ve (or in fact, MANY of us) questioned the performance, entertainment and wrestling abilities of Bray Wyatt, but this story also makes him out to be a pretty decent guy.  Courtesy of WWE artist Rob Schamberger, we finally have a story to prove that, and it involves an action figure, an autograph, a Walmart, his step-grandmother-in-law (I’ll get to that in a bit), and the Eater of Worlds himself.

Two Ex-Google Engineers Create Driverless Delivery Car Service

Dave Ferguson and Jiajun Zhu, who formerly worked as Lead Engineers at Google, have founded Nuro. The focus of their new company isn’t on reinventing public and large-cargo transportation, but on low-speed, local & last-mile deliveries or groceries, take-out orders (via Seamless) and laundry. Nuro’s goal is to automate these services to shoulder the quick increase in last-minute deliveries, while giving local businesses a boost to compete with Amazon (mainly their Prime Now service).

Nintendo Labo: What Do We Know It & Why Do I WANT IT SO MUCH?!?

Last week, Nintendo unveiled its “new interactive experience” for Nintendo Switch, called Nintendo Labo. Nintendo describes the Labo as a “new line of interactive build-and-play experiences that combine DIY creations with the magic of Nintendo Switch.” The Labo will allow Switch owners build cardboard versions of items — dubbed “Toy-Cons” by Nintendo — ranging from a 13-key piano, to a fishing rod, a bird house or even a motorbike. It works by inserting Joy-Con controllers into those Toy-Cons, and (via the Joy-Con’s use of multiple IR and motion sensors), players will be able to play games themed to the variety of cardboard creations. I must say, as someone who grew up making tons and TONS of things and projects out of cardboard, I’m extremely interested and intrigued by this product.

Who do YOU have winning the First Women’s Royal Rumble?

I know, I know; there was an architecture story this past Monday, meaning there’s a Video Game story later in the week. So, why is there a Pro Wrestling story in the middle, you ask? Well, the usual Pro Wrestling story next week will still happen, but that’s AFTER this year’s Royal Rumble, which I want to talk about BEFORE the event. According to SportsBettingDime, the current favorite to win Men’s Royal Rumble is Shinsuke Nakamura (+250), and I want this too, especially after their classic Wrestle Kingdom match a few years ago and the tease during last year’s Smackdown Money in the Bank Match. But every year there’s a pool asking who’s winning the Men’s Rumble match, so the most intriguing question this year is who’s going to win the FIRST, WOMEN’S Royal Rumble match?

The More You Use This Memo Pad, More Architectural Sculptures Are Revealed…

Japanese company Triad created this unique set of memo pads, called Omoshiro Blocks (or “fun blocks”), which slowly reveals an architectural sculpture as you remove each page from the pad. It’s almost like you’re excavating a historical structure while making daily reminders to yourself! SCORE! Thanks to the precision of laser-cutting, these Omoshiro Blocks let it users make notes on over 100 appealing sheets of colored paper, while at the same time unveil amazingly detailed 3D architectural treasures distinctive to each note pad.  The pads contain tiny paper replicas of historic sites, ranging from the Tokyo Tower, to Sensō-ji, to the Buddhist Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Kyoto, and more.
