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

So what if the last game commercially released on the Sega Genesis was the 1998 port of Frogger. That means, if you don’t count other homebrew or indie games (hey there, Pier Solar & the Great Architect), that it has been approximately 19 years since a brand new game has been released on the Genesis. So if you’re like me and have been holding on to Sega’s best-selling console (despite also owning a Retron 5), then we all have Paprium, a nice little Final Fight-inspired beat-em-up game that’s scheduled to come out later this year. Plus, if you’re wondering why I mentioned Pier Solar, this new game is being made by the same company, WaterMelon Games. HUZZAH! Continue reading Get Ready for ‘Paprium,’ a Brand New Beat-Em-Up Game for the Sega Genesis!
It’s probably not a secret that I’m a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog (here’s the damning proof, itself), so hearing that in one of the upcoming new Sonic games (other than the retro-tastic Sonic Mania, which, YES, I DID pre-order because I’m a sucker), you’d be able to create your own character to fight the forces of evil with Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic. Continue reading Sonic Forces Lets You Create Your Own Sonic Character; Excuse Me While I “SQWEEEEEEEEE”…
Back in March, pro wrestling veteran Christopher Daniels won the Ring of Honor World Championship for the first time in his career, occurring about 15 years after he first debuted with the promotion. While people like myself have followed Daniel’s career for almost as long as he’s been with the company — I’ve followed his career since the spring of 2000 — other more casual wrestling fans might be left wondering why ROH awarded its top prize to a 47-year-old while their company is focused on building new stars. However, at the end of the day, Daniels’ championship victory was one of the most memorable moments in ROH’s history, because finally — FINALLY — watching Daniels lifelong dream in the twilight of his career come into fruition is what wrestling is truly about. Continue reading Christopher Daniels Talks To Ring Rust Radio about Ring of Honor, Retirement, and the Mount Rushmore of ROH
In this pro wrestling-themed episode of PractitioNERD Documented, or “Doc’D”, host Montez McCrary will be discussing the background, the event itself, and the aftermath of WWE’s final ECW-branded pay-per-view event, 2006’s December to Dismember. Let’s just say it was the final one for a reason… Continue reading ECW December to Dismember 2006 – Doc’D #64
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.
