SMOSH has teamed up with WWE for Every [Wrestler] Ever, the newest episode of their “Every [Blank] Ever” series that satirizes pop culture.
In this video, WWE Superstars Seth Rollins, Xavier Woods, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, WWE Diva Paige, and Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan appear along others from SMOSH who try to imitate WWE Superstars. Rollins, Woods, Bryan, and Paige even try to to some impersonations of their own.
“We apologize in advance to all wrestling fans we’re about to offend,” the video says at the start. You can see it below.
Every [Blank] Ever’s first three episodes, Every [Instagram] Ever, Every [Party] Ever, and Every [Game of Thrones] Ever have reached over 10 million views total since debuting.
The UFC and Reebok today released UFC Fight Kits during a press conference in New York City. These apparel will be worn by all UFC fighters and are mandatory during UFC events.
CM Punk also got his Reebok jersey despite not even making his UFC debut. It was a smart move from both UFC and Reebok considering the large fanbase Punk has and a lot of money can be made from such apparel.
However the name CM Punk is not being used on these jerseys as the company opted to use his real name Philip Brooks. The front of the black jersey has the UFC logo in blue and the Reebok red logo over a white section. One of the sleeves is also white which has a red Octagon. The back has the UFC logo on the neck and Philip Brooks written on the side. It will set you back $95 if you want to order one.
Roman Reigns will be making a special appearance on tonight’s Tough Enough as the competition enters its second week with 12 hopefuls remaining.
The first episode of the season did little to show viewers what it takes to be a wrestler with the second show hopefully tackling some in-ring training. Several WWE Superstars and Divas will appear throughout the series to help the Tough Enough hopefuls in the competition.
This week’s episode was taped throughout the past week – as will be the case going forward – with the live portion of the show taking on the elimination part.
USA Network added a two hour Raw replay as the lead-in to Tough Enough after the disappointing ratings the show pulled in last week.
WWE Superstars and Divas will be traveling to the Far East today for three events – one in Singapore and two in Japan.
The tour starts on July 2 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium and then it continues on July 3 and 4 at the Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo for two back to back shows. The July 4 show will be broadcast live on the WWE Network and will feature Brock Lesnar’s return to the ring since WrestleMania and the NXT title will be on the line as Kevin Owens defends the championship against Finn Balor.
Those going on tour include John Cena, Dolph Ziggler, King Barrett, Kane, The New Day, Cesaro, Lucha Dragons, Neville, Paige, Bella Twins, and others.
Current U.S. title holder John Cena has been nominated for the inaugural Sports Humanitarian of the Year Awards, presented by ESPN and PlayStation.
The awards will celebrate and honor athletes, teams, nonprofits and members of the sports industry for using sport to serve communities and make a positive impact on society. The event, which will take place Tuesday, July 14 at the Conga Room at L.A. Live, will be the first of its kind, bringing together the leagues and sporting community to pay tribute to the collective good of sports. Laila Ali will be hosting the ceremony.
The Sports Humanitarian of the Year Award is given to an athlete whose continuous, demonstrated leadership has created a positive impact on their community through sports. The honoree will receive a $75,000 grant (and $25,000 grant for each of the three finalists) from ESPN’s Corporate Citizenship department to advance the impact of the charity related to the award-winning humanitarian efforts.
John Cena is nominated with Anquan Boldin from the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers, Tamika Catchings of WNBA’s Indiana Fever, and Henrik Lundqvist from NHL’s New York Rangers. An independent panel of judges selected the finalists.
Meanwhile WWE’s community relations department is also nominated for the Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year. The winner will receive a $75,000 grant (and $25,000 grant for each of the three finalists) from ESPN to the qualified charity related to the award-winning humanitarian efforts.
WWE is nominated along with the Chicago Bulls, Portland Timbers, and San Francisco 49ers.
As of today, James Storm, Magnus, and Austin Aries are no longer under a TNA contract and are free to pursue other promotions.
PWInsider.com is reporting that TNA is somewhat changing the way they are operating, keeping only their big stars under exclusive deals while letting others work with them on short term deals. With TNA not doing live events but only television tapings, many under contract are not getting as much money so that is why TNA is allowing them to wrestle for other promotions and use them when needed.
The three will probably be asked to perform in the upcoming set of tapings in July although now they are in a position to turn down the offer if they have a better deal from someone else on the same dates. TNA has already taped a month and a half worth of Impact shows over the last week so you will still be seeing them on television.
On Thursday, July 2, WWE Network will air a Finn Balor special in anticipation for his NXT title match against Kevin Owens in Japan on July 4.
Titled Finn Balor: The Demon Revealed, the synopsis for the show reads, “An in depth look inside the life, career and future of NXT Superstar Finn Balor.” It will start at 10:30PM EST and will run for 30 minutes.
Balor vs Owens for the NXT title will be one of the matches featured on the special WWE Network presentation of the WWE live event in Tokyo, Japan. It will air live around the world and in the United States it will be in the early hours of the morning on Independence Day.
Here are the results from last night’s Slammiversary pay-per-view which took place from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.
Tigre Uno defeated Manik and DJ X in a three way elimination match to retain the X Division title; Robbie E defeated Jessie Godderz; Bram defeated Matt Morgan in a street fight; Austin Aries defeated Davey Richards; Awesome Kong and Brooke defeated The Dollhouse in a 3 on 2 handicap match; James Storm defeated Magnus in a non-sanctioned match; Ethan Carter III and Tyrus defeated Lashley and Mr. Anderson; Jeff Jarrett defeated Matt Hardy, Eric Young, Drew Galloway, and Bobby Roode to win the King of the Mountain championship.
Awesome Kong and Taryn Terrell, the two TNA Knockouts who have been reported that they will be departing the company after tonight’s Slammiversary, are saying otherwise in separate posts on their Twitter accounts.
“Contrary to rumors, @IMPACTWRESTLING and I will ring in the new year together & I’ll ‘deck the halls’ of anyone who says otherwise,” wrote Awesome Kong, adding the hashtag #staying at the end.
Three minutes after that tweet, Taryn Terrell also posted her thoughts on the news. “Stop making up rumors Internet! I just started playing!! I’m not going ANYWHERE,” she wrote.
The two already taped weeks worth of Impact that will air over the next month and a half.
Meanwhile, TNA’s Bob Ryder also disputed the news which were initially reported by the Wrestling Observer, saying neither of their contracts are up “for several months.”
