Macaulay Culkin Used ‘Home Alone’ Tactics & Traps To Help Santa Win A Wrestling Match

It’s stories like these that remind me how much I love professional wrestling…

One week ago, Los Angeles-based Bar Wrestling held its final show of the year. This promotion’s shows are so well-received and in such high-demand that many shows are standing -room only. They’re kinda of like CHIKARA and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), as Bar Wrestling puts on a fun show filled with some of Southern California’s best wrestling talent (here’s some of their DVDs/Blu-rays from Highspots). On their last show for 2017, Joey Ryan dressed up as sexy Santa Claus and teamed up with Candace LeRay (dressed as an elf) and Dick Justice (as a “Supercop Santa”) against “Professional” Peter Avalon, Ray Rosas and (Horn)Swoggle. My match was really funny and…wait…hold on…is…is that…THAT’S MACAULAY CULKIN SITTING IN THE FRONT ROW!

Warning: This Video Contains WWE Superstars Singing ‘Great Balls of Fire’; You’ve Been Warned…

Well, all it took was for Jerry Lawler to get another Jerry (Lee Lewis) to give WWE the rights his biggest hit for the RAW-exclusive Bad Blood pay-per-view to be renamed “Great Balls of Fire.” Oh boy… However, I will say that the prospect and anticipation for a Universal Championship match with Brock Lesnar defending against Samoa Joe — as well as Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in an Ambulance Match — has amped for the show.  But just like WWE, they just have to quintuple-down on the pay-per-view absurd title of “Great Balls of Fire” by having a gaggle of WWE Superstars “sing” the lyrics to the Jerry Lee Lewis’ hit tune in the above promo video.

New Trailer and Release Date for ‘Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days’

If you’ve ever felt the eagerness to hop into the world of any movie from Quentin Tarantino, than you might enjoy this bit of news. A new cinematic-style trailer and release date has been announced for Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, which will be out on PC and Steam on May 18  (that’s NEXT month!). The game centers around the bank robbery plot of the classic Quentin Tarantino film and turns it into a top-down shooter, similar to the popular Hotline Miami (one of my favorite games) with the stylized 3D graphics a’la Team Fortress 2, and a unique time-rewind mechanic. There’s currently no final price for the game, however you can get a quick look at the game with a new trailer posted above.
