WWE chairman Vince McMahon himself announced that Roman Reigns will make his return to the WWE next Monday on Raw. The 33-year-old has been away from the company for the past five months battling his second bout of leukemia. Roman Reigns Although no details have been released about his impending return, McMahon says Reigns will discuss his treatment from the cancer. With Seth Rollins and Brock Lesnar set to meet at WrestleMania 35 but Rollins unable to compete right now and Lesnar only making his usual sporadic appearances, there’s a good chance Reigns will address that situation, too. .@WWERomanReigns (aka Joe Anoa'i) will address the status of his fight with leukemia this Monday on Raw. #fighter #proud #classy pic.twitter.com/kgXD8SHwVc — Vince McMahon (@VinceMcMahon) February 21, 2019 Of course, with Dean Ambrose seemingly a good guy again on his way out of the company, this could be one of the WWE’s final chances to give fans a Shield moment. Reigns has also been announced for Good Morning America on Tuesday morning. The increased media activity could signal a big announcement, or he’s just gradually getting back into it. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST WWE NEWS” posts_category=”5251″ posts_number=”10″ query_type=”recent” /] The four-time world champion had to relinquish the Universal title last Ocotber only two months of capturing the bet that had alluded him for nearly two years from Lesnar. Rumours have begun to surface that Reigns will be apart of WrestleMania 35 given the timing, but it’s more likely this is a ratings boost and he will be used to further the Rollins/Lesnar angle.

It’s been an interesting week in the world of professional wrestling with the WWE doing all they can to shake things up. Let’s check out the rumours heading into the weekend: Vince McMahon is the key decision-maker for the WWE Ronda Rousey wanted Becky Lynch to hurt her Raw Women’s champion Ronda Rousey was viciously attacked by Becky Lynch at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view by The Man’s crutch. Rousey was left with a gash on her head and she needed stitches in her elbow, but she told Lynch backstage beforehand to make it real and the former Irish Lass Kicker obliged. Lynch attacks Rousey at Elimination Chamber Hardy Boyz about to leave WWE? Both Hardy Boyz signed a two-year deal with the WWE when they returned at WrestleMania 33 and Matt Hardy has revealed that he only has 11 days left on his deal. With no word of Jeff renewing, one has to assume he is also only 11 days away from being a free agent. Jeff has been active on SmackDown whereas Matt Hardy hasn’t wrestled since July last year. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST WWE NEWS” posts_category=”5251″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”recent” /] Undertaker at WrestleMania 35 We all know that The Undertaker is going to be making an appearance at Starrcast II over the same weekend AEW hosts Double or Nothing in Las Vegas in May, and Vince McMahon doesn’t like it. Since that news broke, there has been a big push from within the company to find a decent spot for The Undertaker on the card at WrestleMania 35. The Undertaker has been on the verge of retirement for years now Becky Lynch to return at Raw next week It’s been a pretty tame suspension by anyone’s standards, but Becky Lynch is set to return next week at Ric Fair’s birthday bash on Raw. It’s likely she will interrupt a segment with Ric in a bid to get at his daughter and rival, Charlotte. Becky Lynch could main event Wrestlemania 35 with Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair Arn Anderson leaves WWE The WWE Hall of Famer left his backstage role in the company on Thursday according to Pro Wrestling Sheet. For those who don’t know, Anderson was a member of the Four Horseman and has been a producer with the company since WWE bought WCW back in 2001. There’s no word on why Anderson has left after 18 years.

During the opening seconds of “Fighting With My Family,” when you see it is a film from WWE Studios, you wonder if it will be one big promotional ad for the big-time professional wrestling offered by World Wrestling Entertainment. There is that aspect of it, sure, the film using vintage WWE footage at times and showing arenas packed with wrestling-obsessed fans. However, this movie — based on the life of since-retired WWE Divas champion Paige — is, at its core, a largely satisfying heartfelt comedy that’s at least slightly more about family as it is bodyslams, elbow drops and piledrivers. Ultimately a biopic about Paige, aka Saraya Bevis, the film’s wider focus is on her family. Hers is a wrestling clan that already was the subject of a documentary, “The Wrestlers: Fighting with My Family,” which is said to have caught the attention of pro wrestling superstar-turned-action movie giant Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Like Paige, Johnson comes from a wrestling family, and he shepherded this fictionalized version of Paige’s story through the studio company he founded and runs, Seven Bucks Productions. The first act of “Fighting With My Family” is carried by the big-screen version of the future Paige’s wrestling-devoted household, which, along with then-Saraya (Florence Pugh), consists of brother Zak (Jack Lowden), mother Julia (Lena Headey) and patriarch Ricky (Nick Frost). (Another brother is finishing a prison term as the film begins.) In their native Norwich, England, they run a small-time wrestling association, in which all four wrestle and that serves as a training ground for Zak and Saraya, both of whom have their eyes set on performing in the WWE. To say this family is entertaining is an understatement, Ricky and Julia being especially delightful as they dole out four-letter words and other colorful language in their thick English accents. To Zak and Saraya, this life — which sees their parents scraping by financially — is perfectly normal. “Wait, I know you,” a girl of about Saraya’s age says to her on the street as Saraya is selling tickets to an upcoming exhibition. “You’re from that weird family.” “We’re not weird,” Saraya answers, sounding rather unsure of the assertion. When a WWE recruiter calls the house to invite Zak and Saraya to a regional audition, the family thinks their dreams are about to come true. However, Hutch (Vince Vaughn), the chief trainer at the WWE’s developmental association, NXT, sees something only in Saraya. She is invited to travel to Orlando, Florida, to further pursue a performing slot; Zak is not. Although she insists to Hutch she won’t go without Zak, both men urge her to reconsider, which she ultimately does. And so while Zak is left behind with his girlfriend and their new baby — and begins making bad decision as his dream becomes ever more elusive — Saraya finds herself in the United States with other aspiring pros. On the female side, the pale brunette finds herself up against tanned blondes who don’t have the wrestling background she does but who look better in bikinis, which she fears is what will matter most. Paige’s journey to the top of this wrestling mountain will not be easy, of course. Written and directed by Stephen Merchant — who, with Ricky Gervais, created BBC’s “The Office” and “Extras” and who shows up in a minor role in this film — “Fighting With My Family” is better at being funny than at flexing any dramatic muscles. And, thus, it is best early on, with the utterly hilarious Frost (“Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz”) carrying much of the comedic load. That said, Headey — whose Julia is a far cry from her “Game of Thrones” character, Cersei, aside from both being strong women who care deeply about their children — is pretty funny, as well. Once the action lands in Florida, Vaughn (“Hacksaw Ridge,” “Wedding Crashers”) has to pick up the comedic slack, the actor giving us a character in Hutch that conjures memories of Vaughn’s alter ego in 2004’s “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.” Hutch is more sincere, though, pushing Paige either to quit or to really push herself. (A nice through-line from Merchant’s script has Hutch trying to explain to a still broken-hearted Paige about why Zak doesn’t have what it takes to become a WWE superstar. The payoff is nice.) As for the leads, Pugh (“Lady MacBeth”) is easy to root for but not as interesting as you’d hope, and that’s roughly the case with Lowden (“Mary Queen of Scots”), too. Johnson also appears, as himself, a few times throughout the film. When he’s on screen, “Fighting With My Family” goes from feeling like a little indie film to something almost larger than life, as Johnson himself is. The movie doesn’t need him, but he does cook up a little something for it. Along the way, “Fighting With My Family” may teach you a few things about pro wrestling, such as wrestler giving a “receipt” to his or her partner during match rehearsals when the other person does something carelessly dangerous and that, apparently, they prefer the word “fixed” to “fake” when it comes to matches. (After all, many of the injuries sustained in the ring are all too real.) Speaking of wrestling being fixed, in its climactic moment, when Paige wrestles in a big match, “Fighting With My Family” all but wants you to forget about that fact, presenting its fakest moment. It’s not enough to slap the flick with a disqualification, but it’s frustrating. It’s still a big-screen winner, if not a championship-level contender. “Fighting With My Family” is rated PG-13 for crude and sexual material, language throughout, some violence and drug content.

WWE legend The Undertaker has hit the headlines again after breaking character to help rapper Bad Bunny. The Dead Man, 53, is believed to be retired from the ring with no plans for him to appear at April’s WrestleMania 35. WWE legend The Undertaker has shocked fans by breaking character to appear in a rapper’s promo video However, that has not stopped him from causing a stir away from the squared-circle. The Phenom, real name Mark Callaway, apparently angered WWE chiefs by agreeing to appear at the Starrcast II wrestling convention on May 25 – one day before rival promotion AEW show Double Or Nothing in the same city of Las Vegas. That followed on from the 53-year-old officially deleting references to WWE for his social media accounts. Now he has strangely teamed up with the Puerto Rican Latin hip hop artist and revealed a much cooler version than his famous Grim Reaper-like demeanour. The Dead Man has been promoting Bad Bunny’s upcoming tour shows Rumours are mounting the iconic Phenom has retired from in-ring action In a YouTube video promoting the rap star’s upcoming tour, Undertaker says: “Yo Bad Bunny, it’s The Deadman, and I think you need to do that third show for Puerto Rico.” The mysterious icon’s appearances away from WWE are now becoming more of a regular occurrence as speculation mounts over his future working the company he has served so loyally since 1990. ‘VERY EMOTIONAL’ WWE owner Vince McMahon reduced to tears after Brock Lesnar lost title Taker hinted at after his loss to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33 as he broke character to place his trademark dark jacket, gloves and hat in the middle of the ring before kissing wife Michelle McCool at ringside. But he made a shock return to defeat John Cena at the last year’s Showcase of the Immortals to claim victory before going on to wrestle at the Greatest Royal Rumble, Super Show-Down and Crown Jewel. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST WWE NEWS” posts_category=”329″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”recent” /] That last appearance saw him and in-character brother Kane defeated by Triple H and Shawn Michaels and the former world champion has not been seen since.

But it now looks like father time could finally have got the better of the legend, who if true, will retire with an incredible record of 24-2 at WrestleMania.
