Only two day until the WrestleMania of the summer, SummerSlam, airs live on the WWE Network and on pay=per-view. Starting with NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV on Saturday (see Activision, “IV” means 4, not “IIII”), the biggest party of the summer will be a near-7-hour affair — it being one of the “Big Five” supercards on WWE’s calendar. So, to hype up such a spectacle, it makes sense to get Terry Crews to do your promotional hype video. And it…is…WONDERFULLLLL!

Design collective I STIFFEN THEE (yes, that IS their name) designed the Kerplunk House to bridge the gap between built space and existing space but having architecture play the role of nature, rather than merely resembling it. Part of this 224 square foot building’s focus on playing off of nature is the fact that the pattern of organization is not readily apparent. The house was built as a multipurpose living and working space that would also act as the initial structure for a desert propagation center, as a mini-forest of desert flora was planted and transplanted over time in its surrounding area.

Matt Cappotelli, who won WWE’s Tough Enough reality show competition in 2003 in it’s third season, died early this past Friday morning at the age of 38. While Cappotelli was diagnosed with brain cancer back in 2017, he was originally diagnosed 12 years earlier while he was training with WWE’s then-developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling. In fact, he was the reigning OVW Heavyweight Champion, after defeating Johnny Jeter, when he was diagnosed in 2005, which forced him to relinquish the title and start treatment to remove the tumors.

You may have seen Ron Funches on NBC’s Undateable or on Comedy Central’s @midnight, and if you’ve ever seen/heard his stand-up you’d know that he’s a longtime fan of professional wrestling. He even has a great bit about how to handle people who tell him wrestling is fake (because OF COURSE the fans already know it’s scripted and predetermined), and, to be hones, it’s a really good retort for keeping the “Negative Nancys” and those drunk off “haterade” at bay. However, Ron is taking his love for the medium to an whole ‘nutha level by actually taking pro wrestling classes, and he explains on Conan, (in the above video) why he’s doing it.

In a backstage segment on this past week’s Monday Night RAW, Finn Balor stated that not only would he enter this year’s Royal Rumble match, but also that he’d be partnering with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in a six-man tag team match against Elias (Sampson) and the Miztourage (Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel) later that night on RAW. While this type of announcement likely wouldn’t be that intriguing involving anyone else, what makes this declaration matter is that Balor, Gallows and Anderson would be reviving their partnership in Japan as founding members of the popular stable, the Bullet Club. Continue reading “Monday Night RAW Featured a mini-reunion of the original Bullet Club; it was TOO SWEET, if I say so myself…”
I suppose that the old adage is true: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again; some things, however, should just be left alone as God’s way of saying “this is not to be.” For the — say it with me now — THIRD TIME, NBC will be adapting the hit UK Channel 4 show, The IT Crowd. If you think this sounds familiar, it’s because in 2007 NBC (after their success with another BBC hit, The Office) made a pilot staring Joel McHale, Richard Ayoade (from the original show) and Jessica St. Clair, and tried again in 2014 (which went nowhere). I suppose this also proves that even adapting one project into a new project can involve some “turning it off and on again;” Lord knows how many IT tickets I’ve personally encountered when THAT was the solution… Continue reading “NBC is, AGAIN, Trying to Adapt UK Tech Support Sitcom ‘The IT Crowd’…”
Konami has teamed up with Starlight Media, a Chinese media giant, to create a live-action Contra movie AND a TV drama series.
