Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and MORE to AEW?

Wrestling Rumors for the week of July 30th 2021


Brock Lesnar to sign outside of WWE

RingsideNews.com

As reported on earlier in the week by Dirt Sheet Radio, Rumors have been circulating about The Beast Incarnate’s return outside of the WWE. While at this point in thine these rumors have yet to be confirmed, Dirt Sheet Radio claim Brock, “has signed a deal” with someone outside of World Wrestling Entertainment. While many believe this may mean Lesnar is gearing up for his in ring return to the UFC, it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility AEW could have their “Next Big Thing” on their hands! With the recent signings and rumored signings from AEW owner Tony Khan, we may be seeing the first big money contracts rolled out to snag these larger than life talents much like we saw from WCW. Only time will tell where Brock Lesnar will take to suplex city next!

Kurt Angle offered AEW and Impact Deals

WWE.com

Coming off of an interview with Fightful Select, Kurt Angle revealed he was offered an opportunity to make an in ring return with AEW, despite Angle previously stating he wouldn’t work for the company. Angle declined the offer due to his declining physical condition in the ring. Impact would also reach out to Kurt, according to WeestlingInc, for a one off appearance but this would also be declined. It would seem more likely than not we’ve seen the last of Kurt Angle’s in ring career following his WWE retirement match with Baron Corbin, but as it goes in wrestling, never say never.

The IIconics between Impact and AEW

WWE.com

Currently still under their WWE 90 day no-Compete clause, The former Billie Kay (Jesse McKay) and Peyton Royce (Cassie Lee) seem to have narrowed down their post WWE career paths to two major companies, AEW or Impact Wrestling. As stated by Cultaholic in their coverage of the duo, McKay and Lee plan on sticking together wherever they go opting to sign as a package deal rather than go their own ways. During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, the two heavily weighed their options and discussed their interests as well as their concerns about joining either company. Cassie Lee went on to claim, “I feel like we could really help their women’s division, though they don’t necessarily have a women’s tag division.”, referring the AEW during the Busted Open interview. As far as Impact Wrestling is concerned the duo believe they have the drawing power to greatly help the company’s exposure.

The American Dragon Makes it Official

WWE.com

News broke earlier in the week that former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan will not be returning to the company following his departure after Wrestlemania. Bryan had been in talks with All Elite Wrestling about a contract that would allow for a more lenient schedule and according to Bodyslam.net it’s a done deal! With both Dave Meltzer and Sean Ross Sapp backing the speculation, despite not being able to confirm, it would look as though The American Dragon is set for a return to the ring with All Elite Wrestling! Although Bryan himself has not made a statement about the matter, CageSideSeats does a great job breaking down everything we know so far about the alleged contract and debut of Bryan Danielson.

“CM Punk to AEW Confirmed”

WWE.com

Ollie Davis of Wrestletalk pun aside, the news that has been blowing up the wrestling community the past week is the possible in ring return of one CM Punk. The long awaited return of the voice of the voiceless is rumored to be under the AEW banner, while every wrestling reporter under the sun is scrambling to piece together whatever evidence they can to support him signing with the company. While the likes of Dave Meltzer are reporting the backstage officials at WWE believe Punk has already signed on the dotted line, no official word has come out from the AEW team nor Punk himself. Meanwhile the community continues to stoke the flame noting the recent Twitter following of In Loving Colour to AEW’s official account, and more recently the entirety of the July 28th episode of AEW Dynamite that seemed to be blatantly littered with Punk References. Most notably on the show was a backstage promo for AEW’s up coming event in Chicago, of all places, where Darby Allin made the claim, “…there’s only one place to really prove that. Right here in AEW. Even if you think you’re the best in the world.” Could we be seeing the long awaited in ring return of The Best In The World in Chicago? Only time will tell! Watch the video of Darby “calling out” Punk below courtesy of AEW’s YouTube.

Twilight is back!

So netflix put all of the Twilight saga on it’s network and it’s going crazy.

Watching them over again brings me back I still can’t believe that they got approved for more after how cringy the first movie was but honestly going back to my pre-teen self the first one wasn’t cringy when I was 11.

However me being 20 now I’m still as in love with these movies as I was when I was younger.

I had some thoughts while watching the first movie again and here they are.

  1. I forgot how (literally) blue this movie is.
  2. I also forgot how bad Jacob’s wig is.
  3. I’m pretty sure Bella’s excitement over getting a shitty old truck is the most emotion she shows in the entire movie.
  4. Anna Kendrick is in this! Wow!
  5. I like how all of these dudes are immediately going after Bella and she’s spoken like . . . 4 words to them.
  6. The Cullens walking into the cafeteria is, hands down, the most Iconic scene in cinematic history.
  7. LMAO Edward’s reaction to Bella walking into Biology class. Subtle!
  8. The way Edward is looking at Bella is genuinely disturbing I am screaming.
  9. “I’ll just . . . have to ENDURE it.” Edward is so dramatic.
  10. OK, Bella is so dramatic too . . . a match made in heaven.
  11. Why is Emmett like hanging out of the top of the Jeep? Who casually rides in a car to school like that?
  12. I’d forgotten about the scene where they show someone getting killed by three mysterious figures. The vampire drama begins.
  13. Oh, finally a civil interaction between Edward and Bella!
  14. Edward’s brows are IMMACULATELY groomed.
  15. “It’s complicated.” “I’m sure I can keep up.” Maybe she just doesn’t want to talk to you about her personal life, Edward. Boundaries are important.
  16. I love Kristen Stewart as much as the next person but why is she so damn fidgety in this movie?
  17. “It’s the fluorescence . . . uh . . . ” Honestly Edward is my hero.
  18. THE ICONIC VAN CRASH SCENE YES YES YES.
  19. I know that Bella questions the logistics of this whole situation but how did no one see Edward run at vampire-speed to stop the van?
  20. Carlisle Cullen: an icon, a visionary — protect him at all costs.
  21. What are Rosalie, Carlisle, and Edward whispering about? God, I love the drama.
  22. Edward is straight up gaslighting Bella and I am not OK with it. This is emotional abuse, people!
  23. Bella waking up to Edward standing in her room . . . I once found this romantic, but I now realize it’s creepy as hell.
  24. Edward creepily asking Bella, “What’s in Jacksonville?” when he’s across the parking lot when she’s talking about that? Again, Edward is killing the subtlety game.
  25. And then he immediately gets angry at her when she trips. Can he relax?
  26. I love how they threw in Edward catching the apple to recreate the cover. So meta!
  27. “What if I’m not the superhero here . . . what if I’m . . . the BAD GUY.” The absolute D R A M A.
  28. I totally forgot how Jacob tells Bella the story about the Quileutes in this movie! Neither he nor Bella are aware that the legend is, well, true. “It’s just a story, Bella.” Nope, it’s not!
  29. Uh-oh, someone else is getting attacked by the three mystery figures. Except now we’re finally seeing who they are!
  30. Ugh, Bella getting cornered in an alley by those creeps. Awful.
  31. EDWARD AND HIS VOLVO SAVE THE DAY!
  32. Edward’s driving in this scene is me pulling into the McDonald’s drive-thru at 10:28 a.m. before they had all-day breakfast.
  33. I know that Edward is the hero in this scene, but the man was just casually following Bella around? It’s just as creepy!
  34. I used to swoon over this restaurant scene so much. Bella finally learns that Edward can read minds, but not hers. “Money, sex, money, sex . . . cat.” (The person thinking about cats was actually a personal cameo by me.)
  35. I used to think the pacing of this movie was perfection but now I realize they’ve only had three conversations.
  36. Bella is realizing some shit here.
  37. We’re finally to the forest scene! So good!
  38. “How old are you?” “17.” “How long have you been 17?” “A while.” CHILLS.
  39. “I know what you are: a vampire.” (But imagine if he wasn’t a vampire and now it’s just really awkward.)
  40. As much as I loved this scene, it’s striking me as kind of abusive now? He just grabs her arm and starts dragging her up the hill. Not cool.
  41. YOU BETTER SPARKLE!
  42. Edward talking about how much of a killer he is as he casually rips entire tree limbs off . . . Bella, sweetie, throw the whole man out.
  43. Imagine if Edward and his family weren’t “vegetarians”, though, and they did eat humans? Would Bella still go for him?
  44. I remember reading about how Twilight was inspired by a dream of Stephenie Meyer’s, which was the scene in which Edward and Bella lye together in the flower field. Ugh, so poignant.
  45. At this point the only real reason Edward is so attracted to Bella is because he loves her smell so much. He literally just wants to drink her blood. I feel like there should have been some more development here about them falling in love for like, normal reasons?
  46. “About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him — and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be — that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally, and irrevocably in love with him.” Um, really? You’re irrevocably in love with him? Sis, you’ve known him for two seconds. Also, you’re literally 17.
  47. Edward comparing his diet to humans living on tofu and that it’s not fulling satisfying is BS, sorry. Vegetarian and vegan diets are 100 percent sustainable Edward!
  48. Bella meeting Edward’s family for the first time is one of the funniest scenes of the whole movie.
  49. “Is she even Italian?” “Her name’s Bella”. LOL.
  50. Rosalie straight up shatters the glass bowl, so iconic.
  51. There’s constant commentary about how much the vampires all have to literally restrain themselves from killing Bella, and Bella seems chill with it.
  52. It just now dawned on me that since vampires don’t eat or drink anything, they can’t drink alcohol or get drunk. And, obviously, they don’t sleep either. What the hell do they do for fun?
  53. Oh, right. They listen to Debussy.
  54. “You better hold on tight, spider monkey.” What?
  55. When your date monkey-crawls up a 50-foot tree with you slung on their back . . .
  56. Edward busting in through Bella’s window when she’s talking to her mom, and then admitting that he’s been doing it for “the past couple of months.” OK???
  57. Edward can’t fully make out with Bella because he wants to kill her so bad. How did 12-year-old me not realize how bizarre this is?
  58. Also, how does Charlie never hear full-on conversations and shuffling around in the room literally right next to his?
  59. Edward watching Bella sleep when she willingly invites him to do so is 100 percent cuter than when he was creeping in. Glad we’re past that phase.
  60. Seriously, how did I never noticed how beautifully groomed Edward’s eyebrows were?
  61. I know I say this a lot, but the baseball scene is *peak* cinema. The storm. The cinematography. “Supermassive Black Hole” playing in the background. Iconic.
  62. Rosalie hates Bella’s guts so much.
  63. Oof, here come the bad vampires. I love this drama. Also I love how they come onto the field like they’re walking on one of those flat escalator things that are always in airports.
  64. Seriously, they weren’t able to smell Bella until there was a gust of wind? The Cullens could smell Bella from the moment she came into their home.
  65. God, Edward is so freaking aggressive with Bella sometimes. It’s not romantic.
  66. I’ve always really hated the whole fight scene Bella and Edward simulate to give her an excuse to leave. And when she insults poor Charlie so badly so he’ll let her leave . . . #justiceforcharlie
  67. Bella passing by the diner and seeing the normal kids just living life — so thought-provoking.
  68. “Bella, you ARE my life now.” Again, y’all are 17.
  69. I like how James threatens Bella and tells her that if she brings anyone to the ballet studio, he’ll kill her mom. Is going alone REALLY a better idea, Bella? He’s obviously still going to kill you both either way.
  70. Uh-oh, Bella got bamboozled.
  71. Pepper spray on a vampire. Good move, Bella.
  72. The whole movie, Edward is always like, “Vampires are INDESTRUCTIBLE. INVINCIBLE. NOTHING CAN KILL US.” And then they kill James in like, .0005 seconds.
  73. Edward sucking the venom out of Bella’s arm is . . . uncomfortably sexual.
  74. “Death is peaceful, easy. Life is harder.” So deep, Bella.
  75. They just accept that Bella simply fell down some stairs. Are y’all just going to ignore the gaping bite wound in her arm???
  76. Bella wears converse to prom. Ugh, she’s so quirky.
  77. Jacob just casually shows up to Bella’s prom to tell her that his dad wants her to break up with her boyfriend.
  78. Ohhh, Victoria is still alive — and she looks PISSED. The perfect set-up for New Moon.
  79. 🎶 “HOW DID WE GET HERE? I USED TO KNOW YOU SO WELL” 🎶 “Decode” is the song of the decade and that is simply objective.

Therefore I am now encouraging you to watch it again and relive it like you did before.

I only pose one question… Team Edward or Team Jacob?

Real Life Dumb and Dumber MiniBike to Aspen

Dumb & Dumber is one of the most infamous comedies of the last few decades and for good reason. Either idolized or despised by the viewing audience, the classic has stood the test of time and remains one of the most well known and quotes movies to date. Being able to quote the film seamlessly is almost commonplace in society now and days, what’s not however, is attempting the infamous mini bike trip… until now.

RevZilla’s Common Trend members Ari Henning and Zack Courts recreated the 350+ mile journey from Nebraska to Aspen on their very own custom built, scale mini bike replica! The pull-start bike complete with streamers and basket was just the start however, the whole journey wouldn’t have been worth it without bringing along a suitcase! The team researched the most probable rout the dynamic duo could’ve traveled, mapped it out, and headed for the Rockies!

The journey was not without its challenges as one may suspect, the team blowing out two back tires from the pressure of the trip. The small unstable frame of the bike made for a difficult time navigating through high wind speeds and curves while trying to remain stable. More issues the pair encountered can be found in their account of the trip and the process leading up to it here on RevZilla, where they also detail a few encounters with the law.

Photo from: Dumb & Dumber Wiki

The guys made the long hull to Aspen, “Some place warm, a place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano”, proving the ridiculous completely possible. Dressed head to toe in their best Harry and Lloyd attire, Briefcase in hand, and a “hog” that’ll get 70, or at least close to, miles to the gallon! Let’s just hope they didn’t do it all for a girl named Mary!

You can watch the full video of the trip below courtesy of RevZilla’s Youtube Page as well as get the full breakdown of the trip and all the stops along the way on their webpage!

We just have one more question, was John Denver a load of shit, man?

Cheap Fun

Concerts, vacations, activities can add up quickly, leaving you with an empty bank account. Even if you’re on a budget or saving up for a big expense, you can still have fun this summer for less.

Here are 41 fun, cheap, and free (minus the fuel costs) things you can do while it’s warm outside. There are plenty of ways to have fun without spending a lot.

Free Things to Do in the Summer

Most of these ideas are free, but some may require paying a small fee. Try a few or do them all and have a fun-filled summer for less.

1. Go to the Park

Explore what your city has to offer. Research the best playgrounds in your area. Make a goal to see all the parks in your area and swing on every swing set. You’re never too old to play on a playground just move out of the way of children don’t hog the playground.

2. Swim at Your Community Pool or Spray Park

Slather on the sunscreen and head out to the pool for a few hours. Many parks also have a water playground or splash pad for hours of fun in the sun. This is my favorite kind of summer fun.

3. Visit the Library

This place is awesome. The library can save you money. It is the perfect place to enjoy free air conditioning in the summer months. Many offer free lecture series or cheap classes where you can learn anything from pottery to genealogy.

Some libraries also have kids’ areas with free games and activities. Check out your library’s calendar to see what events are coming up.

4. Play in the Sprinklers

Throw on your bathing suit and run through the sprinklers. You know you want to.

5. Go for a Hike

Scout out a nearby state park for good hiking trails. Ask your friends and family for recommendations on their favorite outdoor hiking spots. Grab a backpack with water, snacks, a compass, and your map, and have fun.

6. Play a Board Game

Enjoy the cool air conditioner and gather around the kitchen table for a fun family board game. Play an old favorite or borrow a new one from friends or family.

7. Learn a New Skill

Learn to play an instrument, knit, etc. Look for free or cheap classes from your local library. You can also check out the free classes they have at Home Depot. They teach everything from building a bird house to laying tile. At the end of the summer, you’ll have “mad skillz.”

8. Take Pictures

Even if you’re not good with a camera, this can be a chance to get better. Get a book from the library on photography and use what you learn to get better with your camera.

Better yet, organize the pictures you already have to make it easier to enjoy them.

9. Make Popsicles

Pour some of that Kool-Aid in the ice trays, or in some small cups (juice works well too!). Add a spoon for a holder and pop them in the freezer. In a few short hours, you can enjoy delicious popsicles.

10. Watch a Movie

You can rent one from the library, watch it on an over-the-air channel, or go to a movie in the park event.

11. Read a Book

They have these things for free at your local library. Curl up next to the air conditioning vent and read to your heart’s content.

Many libraries also offer audiobooks and ebooks in addition to the paper kind. They can be great for reading on the go or listening in the car.

12. Play Online Games

Look up some free games on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. There are plenty of fun, free games. Angry Birds.

13. Visit a Free Zoo or Museum

Find out if there are any free zoos or museums (or at least free days) in your area. Show up and have a blast. Don’t forget to pack food and drinks so you don’t get tempted to buy snacks.

14. Learn to Cook Something New

Try out a new recipe. Summer is a great time to make something new such as gazpacho or Thai curry. Prefer spending time outdoors? Fire up the grill to cook a rare meat (i.e. ostrich burgers).

15. Start a Blog

WordPress.com is free. So is Blogger.com. Starting a blog is a blast. Use your creativity and build a following.

16. Write a Book

Don’t stop with a blog. Write your own book. Have you been putting off writing a novel or a book? Is writing a book something that has been on your bucket list? Self-publishing is easy these days. You could have your book on Amazon in a few days.

17. Play a Sport

Find a free basketball court and organize a game with a few friends. If it’s too hot outside, plan an evening game or look for a basketball court at a church or recreation center.

Basketball not your thing? How about frisbee, volleyball, or tennis? Look for free facilities at local parks or recreation centers. Don’t have a tennis racket or a volleyball? Ask to borrow it from family and friends. Better yet–invite them to join you in the fun!

18. Attend a Free Workout Class

Many gyms, boot camps, etc.; will let you try their facility or program at least once for free to see if you like it. This may be the perfect time to take a pilates class or try out CrossFit.

19. Blow Bubbles

Make some bubbles using dishwashing soap, water, and sugar (for consistency.) NO ONE IS TOO OLD FOR BUBBLES!

20. Have a Garage Sale

Have fun (and make money) getting rid of all of your unwanted stuff. Your house will feel so much cleaner and better organized after all the excess items are out of it. A successful garage sale helps you meet your neighbors too.

21. Start a Garden

Find some scrap lumber to make a square foot garden in your back yard. Seeds are cheap.

Check the library for books and other information about gardening. Some libraries also offer classes on gardening and may even have a seed library where you can get seeds for free.

22. Watch the Sunrise

Get up early. Find a good spot. Look east. There is nothing quite like watching the sun rise and basking in the cool morning air.

23. Go to the Beach

Grab your swimsuit, sunscreen, and snacks and have a fun, frugal outing. Bring a towel and take a dip.

24. Ride Your Bike

You can find some great trails through your state and local park services and even in your own neighborhood. Have fun and always wear a helmet.

25. Build a Fort

Pillow and blanket forts are awesome. Or go big with a fort made of scraps of lumber.

26. Write with Sidewalk Chalk

Unleash your inner artists and show the neighbors what you got. You can even use the chalk to draw a game such as hopscotch for hours of entertainment.

After it rains, do it again.

27. Start a Collection

Summer is the perfect time to start a collection of stamps, coins, rocks, or other freebies.

28. Have a Picnic

Instead of eating lunch at your kitchen table for the umpteenth time, break out the pic-a-nic basket and blanket. Get some sun while you eat.

29. Go to a Festival or County Fair

Check out your community calendar and find free events in your area. 

30. Volunteer

Find a local person or organization in need (it could be your older neighbor). Offer to help for an afternoon.

If you’re good in a sport, offer to coach a kids’ team. Many kids’ sports organizations rely on free coaching help from volunteers.

31. Go Fishing

Find an ocean, lake, river, pond, or puddle, and start fishing. Make sure fishing is allowed at that location. Borrow equipment or spend a little money to rent it from the bait shop.

32. Have a Parade (or at Least See One)

Find a Memorial Day, Independence Day, or any other day parade to attend. Many homeowners’ associations (HOA) also put together free parades for the neighborhood.

Or, start one yourself and lead the way.

33. See the Sights

There could be many things your town or state are well known for go see them.

34. Watch a Baseball Game

There are many minor league baseball teams all across the country.

Even if your town doesn’t have one affiliated with a major league baseball (MLB) franchise, there is often an independent league team in many small towns with guys who are still dreaming of earning a shot at an MLB team.

A day at the ballpark can be a great and cheap family event.

35. Spend Time with Your family

This might seem like a no-brainer, but it is worth mentioning again. Summer is the perfect time to reconnect with your family and make memories together.

36. Have a Cookout

Nothing screams summer like a cookout. It’s a fun way to hang out with friends and family, and enjoy the warm weather.

37. Go to an Outdoor Concert

During the summer, many parks offer free outdoor concert series. Grab a picnic blanket and some snacks and relax on the grass while enjoying live music.

38. Go See a Play

Many small communities still have a theater, playhouse, or an opera house where you can see local productions of plays and musicals. Seeing a locally produced play can be a thrilling experience, and many have discount nights.

39. Go Camping

If you already have camping gear, head for the great outdoors for a cheap and fun-filled way to enjoy summer.

Don’t want to drive anywhere or pay the campsite fees? Camp in your back yard. Pitch a tent, light a fire, and roast some marshmallows under the stars. If you have kids, they will love this idea!

40. Look at the Stars

There is nothing quite like enjoying the starry sky on a clear summer night. If you live in the city, it may be difficult to see the stars because of light pollution.

Hop in the car and drive away from the city. Find a spot near an open field and look up at the night sky. Try to identify different constellations or individual stars. Big Dipper anyone?

41. People Watch

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and head to a park or the downtown area of your city. Find a good spot and watch the world go by. It’s a great way to disconnect and enjoy the sights and sounds around you. Create a hypothetical life behind a stranger see where your creativity brings you.

Grey’s Anatomy secrets

If you read my last blog you know this is the second blog of a list of Grey’s Anatomy secrets that many people don’t know.

SERIES CREATOR SHONDA RHIMES GOT THE IDEA FOR GREY’S ANATOMY AFTER A DOCTOR TOLD HER HOW HARD IT IS TO SHAVE HER LEGS IN THE HOSPITAL SHOWER.

Rhimes told Oprah that although she had always loved shows about surgery and emergency rooms, the unique angle for her show was sparked after a doctor mentioned how hard it was to shave her legs in the tiny hospital shower. “At first that seemed like a silly detail,” Rhimes said. “But then I thought about the fact that it was the only time and place this woman might have to shave her legs. That’s how hard the work is.”null

THE SHOW IS NAMED AFTER A FAMOUS MEDICAL TEXTBOOK.

Grey’s Anatomy refers to the series’ main character, Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), of course. But the character and show name were chosen as a nod to the medical textbook Gray’s Anatomy, penned by English anatomist Henry Gray and first published in 1858. The book is considered the seminal work on the human body and is in its 41st edition today—with a few updates from the first edition, of course.

GREY’S ANATOMY WASN’T THE ONLY TITLE CONSIDERED.

Kate Walsh, who played Addison Montgomery for three seasons in Grey’s Anatomy‘s early years, once revealed that other possible titles for the series included Doctors, Surgeons, and Complications.null

SHONDA RHIMES HAD VERY SPECIFIC IDEAS OF WHAT HER CHARACTERS WERE LIKE—RIGHT DOWN TO WHAT WOULD BE IN THEIR HOSPITAL LOCKERS.

Part of the main actors’ character descriptions included the contents of their lockers. Meredith: Stacks of old birthday cards that she never got around to mailing and three alarm clocks to prevent her from oversleeping. George O’Malley: Medical journals and old textbooks. Cristina Yang’s include “a Palm Pilot featured with the latest research articles … high heels to go out in after work, condoms because you never know.”

EVERY EPISODE OF GREY’S ANATOMY IS NAMED AFTER A SONG—EXCEPT ONE.

Since the very first episode, “A Hard Days’ Night,” named after the Beatles song, every episode has shared a name with a song title, including everything from Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” to Elmo & Patsy’s “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.” The one exception, so far, was a season 14 episode titled “1-800-799-7233”—the real-life hotline to report domestic violence, which was the premise of the episode.

Songs that SHOULD Have been Wrestler’s Themes

If you’re more than the average fan, chances are you can go word for word or note for note with any litany of wrestler themes across a multitude of eras. The entrance theme is a vital part of any wrestlers persona and plays a major role in how they are received by the live audience. A great entrance theme can put a rising star on the average fans radar or propel an already established star to an unthinkable level, case in point, Chris Jericho’s Judas. However, many times wrestlers who aren’t particularly pinned by management for the main event scene are often saddled with any number of boring or reused stick music from the WWE library. While other companies such as AEW have shelled out some major bucks for song rights in the past year, we completely understand the sizable reason why this luxury cannot be afforded to everyone. That being said, some theme choices just seem too obvious to pass up!

Lunatic Fringe: Dean Ambrose

Now listen, Tony Khan’s recent Acquisition of Wild Thing for Moxley is a spot on fit, we’re not debating that. However, The WWE’s Dean Ambrose was a very different character entirely. Taking much of the hardcore and ruthless style Moxley was known for and toning it down, WWE startled the then Dean Ambrose with the monicker, Lunatic Fringe. Had this maybe just been “The Lunatic” maybe it would’ve had more legs, but I can honestly say I’ve never once heard the phrase “lunatic fringe” used outside of the 1981 Red Rider song of the same name. This was no one and done nickname either, it stuck with him his entire WWE career! You’d think at some point this would’ve been adapted to his entrance theme, maybe when he broke out from The Shield as a singles star, maybe after he won his first WWE Championship, or one of his big returns to the ring, but no. The opportunity was always there several times over, it would seem more than anything “The Fed” just didn’t want to spend the extra green on The Dean. This theme may have been the catalyst that took the Ambrose persona to a more serious and ruthless level, alas all we ever got were some awkwardly places sirens over the same old tune.

Be A Man: Randy Savage

Getting a little more specific on this one, Pomp and Circumstance is 100% the definitive Macho Man theme. The only song that could’ve possibly played the cream of the crop to the ring for all those glorious years, but we’re not talking WWF here, hell we aren’t even taking WCW. In a very unexpected turn of events The Macho King found himself signed to a TNA contract in 2004 just in time for his big debut at their Turning Point PPV. This wasn’t the robe wearing, colorful, catchphrase spouting Savage of old though. More reminiscent of his latter-day WCW gimmick, Savage was back in black, head-to-toe leather with a more serious demeanor than ever. This would’ve been the perfect time for Randy’s rap album Be A Man to be brought to the live wrestling audience. With the self titled track playing him too the ring, this much more grizzled and rough are kind the edges Savage would’ve been backed by his own fitting signature gravely voice, rather than some weird dance club inspired version of his classic theme.

Ziggy Stardust: Stardust

His name was Stardust. Stardust, how do you drop the ball on this. Presumably, the copyright for David Bowie must’ve been immaculate, however, if they planned to keep Cody in that silly little trash bag suit, which clearly they did, why not invest in it. There is a long standing theory in the wrestling world that Mr. McMahon has always forced the Rhodes family into ridiculous gimmicks and costumes in order to get back at Dusty and the NWA for opposing his product, be it yellow polka dots, the “Androgynous” Goldust, or … this thing, and we can’t help but believe that to be at least partially true. I mean for God sake, he even painted his face like Bowie upon the singers passing. Just imagine how much more of a presence, and less of a joke, this could’ve been with Cody walking to the ring as the Ziggy Stardust guitar riff blared behind him, you know the one.

Break On Through: John Morrison

This one legitimately bothers me to this day. The whole basis of the John Morrison gimmick is that he bares a striking resemblance to Doors front man Jim Morrison. Literally, look at his early presentation on WWECW, his attires, manner of speech, what he references, HIS DAMN FINISHING MOVE IS THE STARSHIP PAIN. He is a walking tribute to The Doors. So if someone could please explain to me what in the hell his entrance theme is suppose to sound like, because it damn sure ain’t Jim. The only thing I keep telling myself is that someone pitched the gimmick to the audio department and had to try and explain what The Doors sounded like without ever listening to them. “Yeah man, so it’s like, psychedelic 70s rock with heavy guitar influence then add some guy who sounds drugged out over it”. That’s the only logical explanation I have, and that’s no disrespect to Jim Johnston because he was a phenomenal asset to the company, by damn what the hell happened here. It doesn’t even have to be Break On Through, it could literally be ANY Doors song, Hell it could be a knock off instrumental cover of a Doors song. Something that makes sense is all I ask for, is that too much? Well, I’m WWE yes, yes it is.

Bonus Track

The Touch: Hulk Hogan

I just need this for one night only. Imagine it, the Nitro following the infamous “Finger Poke of Doom”, Hogan hits the ramp with the WCW/NWO World Title as “YOU’VE GOT THE TOUCH” blares behind him, flanked of course by the Touch-ee himself Big Sexy, Kevin Nash. You’d laugh, admit it.

Things you didn’t know about Grey’s Anatomy

There have been so many seasons that it’s crazy how many things that nobody knows.

Bokhee is a real life scrub nurse.

She may not say much, but she’s been a staple background character of the show for years.

And according to a 2013 tweet from Sandra Oh, who played Cristina Yang, Bokhee really knows what she’s doing.

“The nurse in that scene, Bokhee, is a real surgical nurse,” Oh wrote. “She’s been with us since the beginning. She’s like my 2nd mom, she’s the best.”

The medical Jargan is all correct.

According to McKenna Princing, who wrote about being a medical advisor on the show for UW Medicine in 2017, the series employs real doctors to make sure the writers are getting some procedures and jargon right.

But until the advisors filled in the jargon, the writers just put “medical medical” as placeholder text in the script, according to show creator Shonda Rhimes’ book “Year of Yes.”

Rhimes wrote, “Meredith will say, ‘I need a medical medical to medical!’ And someone else will go, ‘Well I have medical medical.’ ‘Well hand me the medical!”

She also revealed that on the show “Scandal,” it’s “political political.”

Only three members remain from the original season.

After over 300 episodes, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey), Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), and James Pickens Jr. (Richard Webber) are the only original leads who are still on the series.  

Derek and Mer had a real wedding registry.

People reported in 2009 that the fictional couple had a real wedding registry on The Knot.

It encouraged fans to donate to research organizations that Derek and Meredith would have approved of, like the American Academy of Neurology Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association.

there are many more things that fans had no idea about stick around for next weeks list…
