Damian Priest gives fiery comeback to Money in the Bank botch accusations

11h ago
When the referee for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at Money in the Bank stopped his count at two when Seth Rollins seemingly had Damian Priest dead to rights, waiting a second for Drew McIntyre’s music to hit for his ultimately failed cash-in attempt, it led to one prevailing assumption within the IWC: Priest botched his kick out. Now granted, some fans assumed that McIntyre’s music hit a second late or that the referee was somehow distracted, but when even Paul “Triple H” Levesque, Priest’s biggest supporter, lamented the spot during the Money in the Bank post-show press confer ..read more

While AEW’s annual running of Blood & Guts featured some of the more brutal spots fans of the promotion have come to expect, from Coffen Drops off the top of the cage, to staple gun tag, and even Darby Allin threatening to set Jack Perry on fire if he didn’t get a shot at the TNT Championship at All In, the one moment that has earned the most ire online wasn’t particularly flashy at all: Allin hitting the “Scapegoat” in the head with an unprotected chair shot. That’s right, while the match was a brutal, bloody affair and the spot in question wasn’t particularly visually stunning, the decis ..read more

It has officially been three months since Swerve Strickland became the new and defending AEW World Champion at Dynasty, icing out Samoa Joe in a Missouri main event to officially become the first-ever African American World Champion in AEW history. Since then, he’s defended the belt on four occasions, twice on television and twice on Pay-Per-Piew, and has rapidly become one of the faces of Tony Khan’s company, even if some fans still believe Will Ospreay is the ace of AEW. Factor in some key outside endorsements from the likes of Jim Jones, Booker T, R-Truth, and Kofi Kingston and a key match ..read more

After weeks and weeks of anticipation, it finally happened: CM Punk marched down to the ring on RAW, picked up a microphone, and made the announcement fans have been hoping for since January. “Is it great to be alive on a Monday night in Green Bay, Wisconsin, or what? Green Bay. Is the Bay green? My shoes are pink, and I say we stain both of them with the blood of a Scottish Psychopath,” CM Punk declared. “Because I saw my surgeon Saturday night, and he said I’m cleared! And that means we’re gonna fight, and I’m gonna get my pound of flesh. So Drew McIntyre, come get this beating that you dese ..read more

Cody Rhodes wants Bengals QB Joe Burrow to ‘Finish the story’ in 2024

When Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow showed up at training camp to hopefully lead his team back to the Super Bowl sporting a new bleached-blond look, more than a few fans were left with the same thought: oh snap, he looks like WWE Champion Cody Rhodes. Now granted, Rhodes isn’t the first prominent figure in the sports or entertainment sphere to sport bleached-blond hair, as his image is not only inspired by his father, Dusty Rhodes, but also action heroes like Dolph Lungren, but considering the “American Nightmare” is the current WWE Champion, has a skin in Modern Warfare 3, and is a ..read more

Even Rikishi isn’t a fan of Jey Uso romantically pursuing Rhea Ripley

When the WWE writers decided to have Jey Uso, fresh off his run at the Money in the Bank briefcase, take a romantic interest in Rhea Ripley, it turned heads across the professional wrestling fandom. Sure, technically, the logic was sound, “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio had been semi-flirting with Liv Morgan for weeks in the lead-up to Mami’s return, and with the Judgment Day’s premier relationship not fully back on good terms, Ripley could theoretically be wooed away by a charismatic bachelor like the “Yeet Man.” … yeah, that’s pretty weird, right? Rikishi thinks so too, so much so that, on his Off ..read more

WWE Rumor: Triple H has seemingly lost some ‘almighty business’ to Tony Khan and AEW

After being one of the true focal points of the final Vine McMahon era, rumor has it that Bobby Lashley and his former manager, MVP, are set to exit the WWE Universe later this year. Now to some, the idea of Lashley leaving WWE feels borderline unthinkable, as he’s a lock for the Hall of Fame and still looks the part of a true main eventer, but when you consider his track record under Paul “Triple H” Levesque, from the non-starter that is The Pride to his lack of title success, and the curious decision to abandon a Hurt Business reunion when it could have been money against the other factions ..read more

In 2023, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered the summer with a giant question mark at the quarterback position. After finding incredible success with Tom Brady during the final act of his NFL career, the Buccaneers were tasked with remaining relevant down the “GOAT,” with a former first-overall pick on his fourth team in as three years taking on a former second-round pick with just nine pass attempts on his resume up to that point. In 2024, the Buccaneers enter the summer with an incumbent starter on a three-year, $100 million contract, and seemingly the entire franchise is behind seeing him succ ..read more

Ric Flair hasn’t been on AEW television since all the way back in March, when he played a small part in Sting’s final match at Full Gear. Now to some fans, this is probably new, as out of sight out of mind, but there is a section of wrestling fans who are excited to see the “Nature Boy” off of television for a variety of different reasons, while another even smaller group actually misses seeing the 12-time world champion weekly, whether due to nostalgia or the variance of what could happen whenever he steps in the ring with a microphone in hand. One party who clearly falls into the final categ ..read more

Dave Meltzer puts Cody Rhodes’ draw into historical perspective versus John Cena

When discussing the success of his current run in WWE, Cody Rhodes routinely points to his long-time friend and mentor John Cena, who he turns to when he needs help or advice, going so far as to suggest that his current run is actually doing numbers that “The Face That Runs the Place” could only dream of. Is that hyperbole? Or is Rhodes really finding the sort of babyface success fans haven’t seen since the Attitude Era? Well, Dave Meltzer decided to break that down on Wrestling Observer Radio and let fans know that, yes, Rhodes really is on a financial and popularity roll the likes of which W ..read more
