'Delayed but not denied': How Mega Ran went from substitute teacher to living out his WrestleMania dreams

Back on April 7, nerdcore rapper Mega Ran was fortunate enough to live out the dream of wrestling fans around the world: Participating in WrestleMania. Ran accomplished this feat by being a last-minute addition to the orchestra that played Roman Reigns’ cinematic theme song during his epic entrance before the main event. So when you get the call from an old friend who happens to be the baddest conductor in Philly saying “if you can be here in 30 minutes wearing all black, you can help us be a part of Roman Reigns entrance at #WrestleMania40,” you answer the call. Holy crap. Thx Frank! pic.twi ..read more

Watch Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage reach breaking point in exclusive 'WWE Rivals' clip

Hulk Hogan and “Macho Man” Randy Savage weren’t the first tag team partners to turn on each other and definitely weren’t the last. But if the phrase would have been in usage during the late 1980s, seeing the Mega Powers explode just hit different. Though once bitter foes, Hogan and Savage eventually decided to join forces as the Mega Powers in 1987. The partnership between two of the most popular stars of their time was incredibly successful, but as with any pairing of two stars who both want to be No. 1, it was doomed to have a relatively short shelf life. With Miss Elizabeth clearly starting ..read more

WrestleMania 41 sounds like it's almost definitely changing dates next year

WrestleMania has been held either on the first or second weekend in April for most of the last two decades, with only an occasional foray into the last weekend of March. That could be changing as soon as next year for WrestleMania 41. One of the big pieces of news expected during WrestleMania 40 week earlier this month was the date and location of next year’s event. Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field was announced as the venue nearly two years ahead of the event, so to go this long without a reveal for 2025 ranks as a genuine surprise. The big difference, however, is that this is the first ..read more

Vince McMahon 'hasn’t had any contact with company leaders' since leaving WWE

According to a comprehensive look at his life after WWE by NBC News, Vince McMahon is spending his time taking trips to Turks and Caicos and Italy, eating at his favorite New York City spots and chatting with Donald Trump. One thing he’s not doing? Talking to anyone in a position of authority in WWE, including Triple H. McMahon still has an office at WWE headquarters in Stamford, Conn., which the sources quoted for the article say is “unoccupied but otherwise intact.” But he hasn’t used it since he resigned from TKO, the company formed by the merger of WWE and UFC under the auspices of Endeavo ..read more

Jake Paul in WWE by SummerSlam? Why Corey Graves thinks it's possible

WWE fans have grown to appreciate — albeit grudgingly in some cases — the way Logan Paul has acclimated to pro wrestling so quickly. Could the same go for his younger brother Jake Paul? WWE commentator Corey Graves thinks so. To date, Jake Paul’s only WWE appearances have come while supporting Logan, as he did at Crown Jewel in the fall of 2022. But Graves believes that not only will the social media star and boxer follow his sibling to WWE, he may even do it in the next few months. Appearing on The Gunz Show podcast, Graves pointed out that Jake Paul is currently training for a high profile a ..read more

WWE is making impressive improvements to its TV presentation this year that have reached premium live events and its weekly shows alike. That includes Raw, and I’m sorry to say that if you didn’t catch this week’s episode, you missed hometown hero Sami Zayn make the most spectacular ring entrance in the show’s long history in Montreal. Before we get to the footage, some back story. Jey Uso had just defeated Finn Balor in the night’s penultimate match, and because he had previously told Cody Rhodes he didn’t want any backup, he was jumped by all of The Judgment Day after the final bell. Jey man ..read more

Every No. 1 WWE Draft pick through the years

Is it an honor to get drafted, whether it’s in traditional sports or WWE? Sure. But there’s something to be said for being the No. 1 pick. The WWE Draft is, of course, not the same thing as a pro sports draft, in the sense that it’s done all for entertainment value. It’s not GMs or authority figures sitting around and selecting the best available wrestler, as much fun as that would be. Still, most years the WWE Draft has been around, the No. 1 overall pick has been a big name, someone you would actually build a wrestling brand around. And even the years when it wasn’t, it’s fun to look back an ..read more

All the hints in the latest Uncle Howdy tease (we think)

If you’ve been watching WWE programming since WrestleMania 40, you’ve likely seen or read about glitches that have been popping up on monitors and graphics reminiscent of when the late Bray Wyatt made his last WWE return in the fall of 2022. The assumption is that these are teases for the return of Bo Dallas as Uncle Howdy, though that’s still conjecture at this point. The latest of these Easter eggs came during the April 15 episode of Raw, when a QR code popped up during the entrance of The New Day. Quick thinking viewers and wrestling journalists were able to reveal a number of interesting t ..read more

WWE Raw results 04/15/24: Rhea vacates, Sami retains, Gable snaps

Nothing makes an otherwise ordinary start to a week in pro wrestling turn sober faster than unexpected injury news, and that unfortunately is the case for tonight’s episode of WWE Raw in Montreal. Earlier today, a report from PWInsider emerged that Rhea Ripley had been injured during her backstage brawl segment with Liv Morgan last week. Other outlets like Fightful have since confirmed that Ripley is indeed injured, but what isn’t clear is whether she will have to vacate her Women’s World Championship. If she does, that heavily suggests she’ll be out of action for an extended period of time. I ..read more
