Rey Mysterio animated series coming to Cartoon Network Latin America

An animated series based on WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio is in the works for Cartoon Network Latin America.

The news was announced this week at Cartoon Network Day during the Pixelatl 2020 Festival by Cartoon Network Director of Content Jiménez Rión.

“Working with Rey Mysterio and ¡Viva Calavera! It has been a pleasure and we are sure that we have an incredible story to tell,” Rión said. “There are many elements to highlight: Mexico as a central element when creating this project, the level of action, the characters and the risks we have taken to make this story resonate and connect with many fans around the world. Booyaka!”

Diego Valenzuela from Mexico City-based A.I. Animation Studios will be serving as the screenwriter. “This is extremely exciting! I can finally share with you guys that I’m the #screenwriter for this spectacular, action-packed cartoon! A million thanks & congratulations to @LosVivaCalavera and @reymysterio for this,” Valenzuela wrote on Twitter.

 

Dana White ready to make Lesnar vs Jones fight if both want it

UFC President Dana White has said that he would make the fight between Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar if the two want to do it.

Lesnar was back in the news after it was revealed that he is now a free agent and able to negotiate with anyone. In the past, the former champ used the UFC to get more leverage on a bigger and better WWE deal but this time around, WWE did not buckle during negotiations and the two sides remained without a deal.

White has claimed that he has not talked to Lesnar in a year and doesn’t know if he wants to fight again. Lesnar is not part of the USADA drug testing pool anymore either so returning to the UFC would be a long way.

“He is 43 years old and he’s got a lot of money. So I don’t know what his plans are, how his body feels, any of that,” White said.

Jones has pushed for a Lesnar fight in the past and now that he’s moving to heavyweight and knowing that Brock is a free agent, he is pushing it publicly again.

“If they both want to fight each other, I’m sure it’s a fight that the fans would want to see,” White added. “It would be a good introduction for Jones into the heavyweight division. Yeah…if they wanted to do it…I would do it.”

Former WWE Performance Center coach Serena Deeb makes AEW debut

Former WWE Performance Center coach Serena Deeb made her AEW debut yesterday on Dynamite, losing to NWA Women’s champion Thunder Rosa.

The 34-year-old joined the WWE Performance Center staff in February 2018 and was assigned to work with the women. But in April, Deeb was one of the many who got cut due to the coronavirus cost-cutting measures and was not brought back even though the Performance Center is now operating as a training facility again following the introduction of the ThunderDome.

“Your support is heard, felt, and appreciated,” Deeb wrote in a tweet after her match. “Thank you @AEWrestling for the platform to do what I love most in the world, and thank you to all who watched and enjoyed it. Can’t wait to do it again.”

Deeb has not signed an AEW deal yet.

Types of sports betting in online casinos

Sports and betting are two sectors that have coexisted for centuries. Sports betting involves the process of placing a bet on the outcome of a particular game. However, this definition is very shallow as many things go on when it comes to sports betting.

Betting in the early days was all about predicting who will win a certain game. Times have changed, and people can now place bets on different outcomes such as scores, who will score, who will be booked, and players that will appear, among other things. The following are some of the different types of sports betting that you can find in a casino today:

Fixed-odds betting

It is the most common type of betting that you will get in gambling houses. A good example is when you predict that team A will win against team B. The two different teams may have different odds based on several factors. Your favorite team can have an odd of 2.5, and you place a bet of $100. Your possible win will be (2.5*$200). You can as well predict that the two teams will draw.

The betting site will analyze the past encounters between the two teams, their current form, and the starting lineups, among other factors, to determine the odds. The team with the highest chances of winning always have smaller odds than the ‘weaker’ team. The teams’ odds might change during the game, but that will not affect your bet in any way. Some of these sites may even allow you to cash out your money as the game proceeds.

E-sports betting

Engaging in e-sports and rewatching games such as college basketball games has been the day’s order during the Covid-19 pandemic. Electronic sports is professional video gaming that has been in existence for some time now. People have been organizing and engaging in video game competitions since the 1970s. The introduction of the internet was a big boost to the gamers community as they started exploring new avenues, such as playing against remote opponents.

E-sport tournaments are now very common and attract players, sponsors, and gamblers alike. Some of the e-sport games you find on online gambling sites have been designed with professional gaming in mind. There are organizations such as International E-sports Federation, the Electronic Sports League and World eSports Association that manage e-sports. Some of the games allow spectators to follow the proceedings. It is also common to find some of these e-sport games held in front of a live audience to boost the credibility of the activities.

Live / In-play betting

This betting type allows you to place a bet when the event has already started. For instance, you can place a bet on a football match after ten minutes. The odds of the teams will depend on the mood of the game. Your bet choice will depend on how the two teams are performing on the field. You can bet on different things such as the overall winner, number of goals, or even whether there will be other changes in the course of the match. You must be quick to place your bets because the odds change a lot on a live game.

Live betting becomes fixed odds betting the moment you stake. In-play betting opens up many betting options that are unavailable in traditional betting platforms. However, in-play betting can feature confusing terms due to the many options available. For instance, if you find a game where team B is leading team A by two goals to nil, then you must understand what it means when you get an option to bet on who will ‘win the rest of the match.’ You can also bet on ‘who will score the next goal’ or ‘which team will score the 3rd goal.’

Pari-mutuel betting

This type of betting does not involve odds like the rest. There will be different players who will place wagers that will end up in a pool. For instance, we can have two teams, A and B, playing. All those who support team A will stake their bets in a pool while the opponents also do the same. Pool A can have $1000, which will be split amongst all those who have staked based on their contributions if team A wins the match.

Understanding the different types of sports betting makes it easy to land on the right wager on casino gry. You can then analyze what suits your needs best and increase your chances of having accurate predictions. Learning NBA props to bet on when the season resumes can be your starting point.

Tony Khan says Buy-In match will be cinematic and also talks Brock Lesnar during media call

The Buy-In match of Britt Baker vs Big Swole will be a cinematic match according to AEW President Tony Khan.

Speaking to the media ahead of All Out, Khan said that Baker has been out for quite a while due to injuries so the cinematic aspect of the match will help protect her. Khan said that the Buy-In show is an opportunity to get more exposure which hopefully leads to more pay-per-view buys.

The match between Baker and Swole is being billed as a tooth and nail match, whatever that might be.

Khan was also asked about Brock Lesnar during the call. Lesnar has recently become a free agent after contract negotiations with WWE broke down. The AEW President said he could not comment on Lesnar at this time but said he enjoyed his work for several years, both as a professional wrestler as well as a mixed martial artist.

Nigel McGuinness back on commentary for NXT UK

Nigel McGuinness is returning behind the commentary desk once again for NXT UK as the brand resumes television tapings according to Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT.

The usual suspects running the show are doing so remotely, a new way of doing business during a pandemic.

NXT UK returns with brand new episodes on September 17 on the WWE Network. All tapings are behind held at the BT Sport studios in London.

AJ Styles says he also had coronavirus last month

After The Rock revealed that he and his whole family were infected with the COVID-19 virus, former WWE and Intercontinental champion AJ Styles also announced that he tested positive last month.

During a live Twitch stream, Styles said he feels for the people who have to deal with the coronavirus and he’s lucky he didn’t have too many problems with it.

“I was one of the lucky ones, with that being said. I had a headache, and I never had a fever. Maybe a couple of boogers, that was about it,” Styles said.

Styles lost the Intercontinental title to Jeff Hardy after he returned from his quarantine period.
