As you will surely have seen during this year’s edition of Summerslam, which aired last Saturday from the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Becky Lynch made her return to the WWE rings, after more than a year of absence from the WWE, due to her first pregnancy.
Having given birth to little Roux a few months ago, Becky Lynch is hastily back in top shape, resuming her hard work at the gym, almost immediately after her pregnancy. At Summerslam, the first success in the ring for The Man immediately arrived, which literally managed to “squash” her opponent, or to beat her in record time, snatching her the title of Friday Night Smackdown champion.
While fans celebrated Becky Lynch’s unforeseen return at SummerSlam, Bianca Belair sadly had to take a crushing loss as she dropped the SmackDown Women’s title in a 27-second squash match. Bianca Belair gave the Irish superstar a lot of respect during the chat with Denise Salcedo by stating that “The Man” was a legend in the making.
Latest news on Bianca Belair
“Right now, I’m just trying to collect my thoughts,” revealed Bianca Belair. “Everything happened too quickly. I was ready to fight Sasha Banks, and Becky came out, which was an amazing moment.
I’m happy to be a part of that, but I lost my title, and right now, I’m just emotional. I feel defeated. It was bittersweet, Becky Lynch, what she has accomplished inside and outside the ring. She is a legend in the making.”
The question that a lot of WWE Universe fans and a lot of insiders asked themselves immediately after the WWE Summer Big Four closed was “why did WWE want to lose its champion like that?” Obviously, everyone thought that the company’s management wanted to immediately take off the status of The Man, upon his return after months of absence, but apparently this is not the case.
As revealed in the last few hours by the well-known site Wrestling Observer, through the words of the well-known Dave Meltzer in one of the site’s Newsletters, it would seem that WWE has sought the sympathy of the public towards Bianca Belair with this move.
As stated by Meltzer, in fact: “People see Belair’s defeat as a sinking, but the idea was to get her to lose so quickly to get her sympathy, with the average fan’s idea that she didn’t deserve such a defeat.”
Basically, as when Lana was thrown on the commentary table every week on Monday Night Raw by Nia Jax, according to Vince McMahon et al, a wrestler when physically and athletically destroyed should receive the sympathy and respect of fans, to regardless of what their character or in-ring performance is. Will it be the right strategy for the fans?
As we saw in the last episode of Rampage, but also in the last episode of Dynamite by All Elite Wrestling, CM Punk made his return to a pro-wrestling ring after years of his disappearance from the world of discipline, with a few and only public appearances made about pro-wrestling, which came on FOX’s WWE Backstage show, alongside Jon Moxley’s wife, Renee Young.
After apparently taking the 2014 Royal Rumble, Punk had decided to leave the WWE forever, making his contract expire and no longer appearing in front of the cameras of the federation, also starting a dispute against the company and especially against its medical staff, represented by Dr.
Amann. After seven years, CM Punk has decided to return in style and has done so in the rings of the second episode of the newborn AEW Rampage, show number 2 of the company of the Khan family, which thus had a boom in views thanks to the name of Punk alone, re-emerged from the dark depths of the pro-wrestling world after years.
FOX takes a shot at WWE over CM Punk
CM Punk’s AEW debut was an unquestionably legendary moment in professional wrestling history. Everything about the scene was surreal from the molten h*t crowd to his emotional reaction and his heartfelt speech.
The latter seemed to allude to what would come from his time with All Elite Wrestling. Not only will Punk compete with the young talent, but he said he had some old scores to settle. As reported by the usual Dave Meltzer, during one of the last Newsletters of the Wrestling Observer, the management of FOX, a very important American television broadcaster, which broadcasts Friday Night Smackdown every Friday evening and which until a few months ago also broadcast WWE Backstage, would go on furious knowing that the McMahon-owned company didn’t even try to make Punk an offer before he landed in AEW.
As reported by the well-known journalist, in fact: “FOX was really disappointed that WWE didn’t make a big offer for Punk to keep him away from AEW.” Apparently, CM Punk’s said to have discussed directly with Tony Khan, without even asking his former company, a sign that relations between the two sides have never relaxed since the 2014 farewell.
We recall that the landing on the FOX television screens, at WWE Backstage, was in fact wanted by the executives of the television station and not by the WWE, which only gave its consent to the agreement, then signed by Punk and by FOX itself. and not with WWE.
The summer of wrestling fans was completely turned upside down by the release of the StarzPlay show “Heels,” a wrestling family drama set in Georgia. Stephen Amell plays Jack Spade who represents a heel in the local federation that was created a few years earlier by his father who sadly passed away.
Opposing his story is that of his brother, the actor Alexander Ludwig. The two brothers deal with different things in their lives in and out of the ring, trying to carry on with the work their father had created. But obviously, the two will have to manage many challenges that come from the outside world.
Becky Lynch is considered the female version of Stone Cold Steve Austin and has taken the WWE Universe by storm since her breakout turn from last year. Like Austin, she was meant to be a heel but got over with the crowd. The Man went on to win the 2019 Royal Rumble and has challenged Ronda Rousey for the WWE RAW Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 35.
Since then, she has tangled with Vince McMahon, HHH and Stephanie McMahon leading to Charlotte being added to the match. The recently-concluded WWE SummerSlam event featured Seth Rollins vs. Edge, an excellent match from which the latter emerged victoriously.
At the pay-per-view, Edge paid tribute to his time with Christian and Gangrel in The Brood by using the faction’s theme song and entrance.
Becky Lynch and Edge could appear in a movie
Speaking with Collider, Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig talked about several things about this new show which was released on August 15, 2021, on StarzPlay, where you can subscribe via app, browser or Apple, Amazon Prime Video or MediasetInfinity.
Towards the end of this interview, the two were asked if there were any wrestlers who would like to make an appearance on the show in the future, perhaps for a second season if it is successful. The two respectively replied: Ludwig: “I prayed to Adam Copeland.
He is a friend of mine and one of the greatest heels of all time. He is in the Hall of Fame. I leaned heavily on him in preparation for this. He was Edge. I was like, ‘Adam, man, we’re going to have you on the show. We would be so lucky to have you.
“So hoping it goes on, I’d like him to come.” Amell: “Give me Becky Lynch, I’d love to have Becky Lynch on the show.” The two certainly have come up with two very interesting names of two people who, in addition to having experience as a wrestler, have also already starred in some TV series, for example, we remember that Edge was in Vikings, but also Becky Lynch, also ste was a stunt double. Most recently we saw her in The Marine 6 and also Billions.
It has now been more than 600 days since Roman Reigns was pinned in a WWE ring, a series that (calendar in hand) therefore started even at the end of 2019. And if it’s incredible to look at the Tribal Chief’s statistics, it is even more absurd to think about who was the last opponent able to nail him to the ring.
Especially looking at how their respective careers have evolved since then. Roman Reigns right now appears as an almost impossible entity to defeat, both in SmackDown and more generally throughout WWE. As Paul Heyman likes to reiterate in each of his promos (he did it even before Money in the Bank, before being interrupted by Edge), the Tribal Chief took less than a year to effectively address and take down all his potentials without possible recriminations.
challengers. Rated R Superstar herself paid for that hiatus by being beaten by Roman Reigns for the second time since their feud began. Roman Reigns is now very ready to take on a new challenge at SummerSlam, where he will defend his Universal Championship against John Cena.
Perhaps a battle that poses the biggest threat to Reigns’ title among those races so far, but one that will still come too late to stop him from passing another major milestone. It is precisely that of the 600 days without pinning, reached on 6 August last.
But who was the last to make it? The answer, read today, seems almost unbelievable.
Roman Reigns is experiencing a magical moment
The Streak has in fact kicked off after TLC 2019, an event that saw Roman Reigns lose by pinfall at the hands of Baron Corbin (still in the role of King Corbin).
How times have changed. Corbin now going through a new, depressing phase in his career. According to the storyline, in fact, after giving the crown to King Nakamura he found himself in a very heavy economic crisis that made him unrecognizable for the WWE employees themselves.
The derelict Baron Corbin also lost to Kevin Owens in the last episode of SmackDown, also losing the right to “give alms” in WWE facilities. A match that captured the attention and also the compliments of The Rock himself, who praised the former King of the Ring himself.
A man is in total crisis. But that, if nothing else, he can boast that he was the last to knock out Roman Reigns before the Samoan became unstoppable.
From the director of DISTRICT 9 and ELYSIUM, a young woman unleashes terrifying demons when supernatural forces at the root of a decades old rift between mother and daughter are revealed.
Directed and written by Neill Blomkamp (Elysium. Chappie), Demonic
The film opens with Carly Pope playing Carly. Carly is having one hell of a nightmare. Carly’s alarm wakes her up. If you ever had a horrible dream and your loud nuclear alarm sound wakes you. That is a feeling of relief.
Demon/possession films can be difficult for some people to watch. I’ve had a lot of conversations with different people about films that involve the devil, demons, possessions, exorcisms. It’s a topic that people don’t always like to engage in. They can also be leery and even superstitious.
This isn’t one of those movies however. Demonic adds in technology, family trauma, pain, and more. Carly Pope is always great in films.
Carly meets with her friend Martin (Chris William Martin) for drinks. He tells her about a company that contacted him. The company has Carly’s mom, Angela played by the incredible Nathalie Boltt. Martin tells Carly about the focus group that they wanted him to join and that Angela is already part of.
Angela is a patient in medical research but she’s also a felon. It’s crazy what can be done, and what happens in life and in movies.
Carly goes in to meet with the nice medical facilitators. Carly is at Therapol, that’s the name of the company. She meets with Michael (Michael J. Rogers) and Daniel (Terry Chen). Michael’s a physician and he’s studying “locked in syndrome.”
Terry Chen does a great job with showing empathy to Carly. Angela is hooked up to a contraption that looks like when I got a sleep test years ago. Carly is photographed for a simulation and she’s going to check on her mother via her mind.
This is a trippy movie. It’s creepy what can be done. Carly goes into this and sees her mother. She’s about to work out childhood trauma in a simulation. Angela is in this simulation and Carly finds her. They pull Carly out of the simulation and of course they want to chat right away. How was Angela? What was she like? This film is beautifully shot. It takes us on a journey.
Neill Blomkamp delivers a solid creepy film. The science-fiction aspects and scary trippy moments. Carly has to go in again and do another simulation. She is taken to another memory, another place in her childhood. Carly is angry, hurt and there is some mind play in the movie.
Carly gets to talk with Angela in a different memory and Angela is glitching in her memory. This is bizarro. Human beings are scary when you think about it. Carly’s trauma is attacking her, she’s seeing these vicious horrific monsters, and she’s attacked in the simulation.
They should have pulled her out sooner but they didn’t. Carly is interviewed again by Michael and Daniel. Daniel has empathy. Carly starts to tell the story and why her mom is in jail. It happened in 1998. Nathalie Boltt is intense in Demonic.
Carly sees something horrible in the simulation. She’s freaking out because it has to do with her friend Sam. I Googled locked-in syndrome and it’s scary.
Martin has a theory; he thinks it’s demonic possession. Carly has that, oh, is he a conspiracy theorist who is crazy? Did he hit his head? Demonic makes you think because there is so much horrible stuff happening. There are incredible people out there in the world also.
Carly doesn’t give Martin much of a chance. Sam shows up at Carly’s house, she let herself in and Carly is freaked out. You can tell when a person has had enough of bullshit and horrific tactics that people like to pull. Carly checks everything before going to bed.
It gets weird really quick. WHAT! Okay, it gets weirder. What in the creepy doctor priest are these guys doing? Neill Blomkamp added some significant fascination with adding on technology for the priests/doctors. Carly goes to check on Sam (Kandyse McClure) this time since she sort of had a premonition-like experience in the simulation.
It gets weird and wild. The demon needs a new host. The effects and the movements of the demon are insane in Demonic.
I would say check out Demonic.
In recent weeks, in the world of pro-wrestling nothing else has been talked about and in the end, some of the indiscretions of the last few months have turned out to be true: CM Punk has finally landed in the All Elite Wrestling rings.
In the second episode of AEW Rampage, the second most important All Elite show, CM Punk literally collapsed (metaphorically), the Chicago arena in which the show was held, with a surprise appearance that fans of the WWE Universe but also those of all world pro-wrestling have been waiting for years now.
In the last few weeks, the name of the former WWE Champion had become more and more insistent, with the “voice of the voiceless”, who after making his historic debut in the second company of the United States, also launched his first historical challenge in the rings of AEW, for All Out, next September 5th, against Darby Allin, who will obviously be accompanied as always by the legendary Sting.
CM Punk on Daniel Bryan
As we reported earlier this morning, during the interview staged on tonight’s Dynamite TV screens, CM Punk responded to the various “Yes Yes Yes” chants of AEW fans, telling fans that they will still have to wait a little while, not thus excluding the possible landing rumored for weeks by former WWE colleague Daniel Bryan, but rather by enlarging the various rumors about it.
If all this was still not enough to ignite WWE and AEW fans, another “story” posted by the Chicago hero on his official Instagram profile has also thought of it, in which only a piece of a famous photo is taken.
in which he and Bryan, at the time of the Ring of Honor, shook hands before their match. Obviously, although the photo has been artfully cropped, to the historical fans of the two or at least to those who are addicted to online research, the thing has not escaped at all, with fans waiting to know if Bryan will really land on the AEW rings and especially when and in what context.
Towards the end of the clip, CM Punk can be heard saying that when he was white-hot, he was booked to lose to Triple H, as well as “Awesome Truth.” R-Truth didn’t mince his words while addressing CM Punk’s comments and had the following to say on TikTok: CM Punk you lost to me and Miz cause we were H*TTER than you sorry, and I neva thought you were impressive at all, just typical entitlement.
The love story between Charlotte Flair and Andrade El Idolo is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the world of pro-wrestling right now. The two met thanks to Karl Anderson. In fact, Charlotte, fascinated by the handsome luchador, asked Karl to introduce him to him and even though Andrade was reluctant at once, in the end, they got closer and never left.
The couple never hesitates to spend nice words for each other during interviews, showing all their support in any circumstance in life and in particular Charlotte has been doing it a lot lately towards her boyfriend who has been through difficult months before finding your size again.
Andrade opens up on Charlotte Flair
Interviewed by Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso, Andrade confirmed that Charlotte Flair had asked WWE two and a half months earlier for permission to attend her match at TripleMania XXIX, which caused her to miss the live show in Charlotte, North Carolina, between protests from disappointed fans, and even praised her love and support.
“Ashley [Charlotte’s real name ed] knew how important it was to me, so she asked for the weekend off two and a half months ago.” Andrade said. “She told me she was so nervous and cried watching my match. , so it meant a lot that it could be there.
With Ashley, we have the best of both worlds. She teaches me. I teach her. She teaches me how to take my time while entering, how to stay in the ring, the little things that people notice when she looks at you. I help her with moves, submissions, adding details to her move set.
She is the person I went to when I asked what I should do for my future. She knew I was unhappy, and I knew it would be sad if I left WWE, because our life is on the road together. But she knows this is my dream, and she supported my decision without hesitation.
She looking at me in my new gear, seeing me training so hard for the past couple of months, she said she was so proud of me. She says my dreams of her inspire her. She said she can see a change in me and my happiness. That’s all she matters.”
It also appears that Charlotte Flair had expressed a desire to accompany Andrade to ringside along with Ric Flair, but this was not possible because she would otherwise have violated her contract with WWE. But she still was able to support her boyfriend from backstage and be there in such an important moment for him.

As you will surely have had the opportunity to see widely from the last edition of Summerslam, which aired last Saturday, WWE wanted to give its fans two sensational returns, namely those of Brock Lesnar and Becky Lynch, with the two main eventers missing.
now on the call for over a year, with the first having made her last match at Wrestlemania 36, while the second had given her title of Raw Women’s Champion to the Japanese Asuka immediately after Money in the Bank. If many did not notice it, among the fans of the WWE Universe, many others instead realized it immediately.
With the return of the two to Summerslam, both Lesnar and “The Man”, however, were automatically drafted in the Friday Night Smackdown roster, with Becky even becoming the absolute champion on the evening of her return, while Lesnar would seem to have immediately established a feud with the Universal champion of the blue show, Roman Reigns.
Latest update on Becky Lynch and Brock Lesnar
Apparently, according to what was reported recently by the well-known Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, from the words of Andrew Zarian, an equally well-known overseas journalist, the executives of NBC and therefore of the group that also controls USA Network, a channel that broadcasts Monday Night Raw and NXT, are said to have been very bitter for having lost two crystalline talents like those of Becky Lynch and Brock Lesnar.
As reported in the last episode of the podcast, in fact: “There are little problems with the NBC and US guys and the fact that Smackdown is now full of talent.” According to the executives of the well-known American television network, in fact, now Smackdown’s said to have by far the most talented roster of the entire company, with Monday Night Raw which would be losing hits on big hits, as already done with the dismissal of Bray Wyatt or that of Strowman, the first big blows for the red roster this year.
SummerSlam 2021 ended with Brock Lesnar’s long-awaited WWE return as he confronted Roman Reigns and was also involved in a brutal post-show segment with John Cena. Andrew Zarian of The Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast revealed that getting Lesnar back was WWE’s response to CM Punk’s debut on AEW Rampage.
As per the planned flow of events, Roman Reigns was on course for a WrestleMania 38 match with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in 2022. The Tribal Chief was then supposed to face Brock Lesnar at the following year’s WrestleMania.

Gauri Khan, who is married to actor Shah Rukh Khan, enjoyed her day with interior designer Sussanne Khan, actress Neelam Kothari and producer Shabinaa Khan. And there was a chief guest too.
