Chris Jericho challenges Kenny Omega at New Japan’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January!

Well, it certainly appears that Christmas will be arriving both early AND late this year. After “The Cleaner” Kenny Omega successfully defended his IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship against Trent Barretta at New Japan’s Power Struggle event this past Sunday, Chris Jericho made an appearance on screen, challenging Omega to a match at Wrestle Kingdom 12 on January 4th at the Tokyo Dome. Now, while many long-time wrestling fans know that Y2J is no stranger to the Land of the Rising Sun, his connection to the WWE certainly raises a few eyebrows and makes the impact much bigger.

Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart, WrestleMania XII, 3/31/1996

The main event at WWF WrestleMania XII was built on two goal from two different wrestlers: Bret Hart, the then-WWF Champion, aimed at wanting to retain the WWF Championship, and the challenger Shawn Michaels, who had suffered a number of setbacks over the course of the previous year (losing a title match at WrestleMania XI, forfeiting the Intercontinental Championship, suffering a concussion, and getting betrayed by Diesel, a.k.a. Kevin Nash).  To add to the build up of this event, the match between Hart and Michaels would be the first-televised, sixty-minute Iron Man Match, in which whomever scored the most decisions in a one-hour period (pinfall, submission, countout or disqualification) would win the match, and the WWF Championship.

Gizmodo’s List of the 12 Biggest Missed Opportunities in Tech

The world of technology is full of success, but is mostly filled with failed, struggling and missed opportunities. This list created by Seth Porges of Gizmodo contains some companies and their products that, at one time, were very successful & innovative, but lacked any type of follow-through.  Many of the companies on this list had a great handle on a huge market or were the  first to venture into a new one, and just let it slip away.  Maybe they couldn’t expand fast enough, didn’t see that they were on to something huge, but somewhere along the way they tuned themselves out, and their ideas were scavenged and made successful by others.

G4 Network previews "WWE ’12"

G4 corespondent (and MTV Road Rules alum) Blair Herter was in Los Angeles last month to not only attend the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view, but also to speak with WWE Superstars Alberto Del Rio, R-Truth, Natalya, and Kelly Kelly to discuss the upcoming “WWE ’12” video game.  The main topic of discussion in the video below is the new game’s simpler and faster gameplay, as well as the new “Predator Technology” animation system.
Yup, formally named “SmackDown vs. RAW,” the series is undergoing some changes, the most visible change being the title, which is now more streamlined to just “WWE ’12” as opposed to what it could have been called: “WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2012.” The new title is quick and to the point.  While many gamers poke fun at the people who always purchase the newest iteration of the “Madden NFL” series every year, I cannot do so; even though I probably buy a new “Madden NFL” game every 2-3 years, I buy EVERY ITERATION of the WWE SmackDown series game year after year, going back to “WWF SmackDown!” on the original PlayStation back in 2000.  So yeah, I’m a HUUUUGE sucker. 😛

“WWE ’12” is scheduled to be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii on November 22, 2011 in North America, and on November 25 in the United Kingdom.  If you pre-order the game, you will be able to play as The Rock and receive alternate attires for The Miz. I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!
