2/24/2014- Hulk Hogan returns to WWE, WWE Network launches, more

Hello everyone! I hope all of you had a great weekend. Let's cut to the chase, shall we? Here we go!


As you all know, Hulk Hogan will be making his return to the WWE after spending a few years with TNA Wrestling. Hogan will be making his return to Raw and will be the host of WrestleMania 30. 

In addition, WWE Network has officially launched today. As I am typing this up, I am currently watching the pre-show of Raw. The best part of the WWE Network is that all of the Pay-Per-Views are included at no additional cost.

In case you didn't know, last night was the Elimination Chamber PPV. Here are the results from the PPV:

  • Cody Rhodes and Goldust def. Curtis Axel and Ryback
  • Big E Langston def. Jack Swagger to retain the Intercontinental Championship
  • The New Age Outlaws def. The Usos to retain the WWE Tag Team Championship
  • Titus O'Neil def. Darren Young
  • The Wyatt Family def. The Shield
  • Cameron def. AJ Lee via DQ. AJ retains the Divas Championship
  • Batista def. Alberto Del Rio
  • Randy Orton retains the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the Elimination Chamber
Elimination Chamber order:
  1. Sheamus eliminated by Christian
  2. Christian eliminated by Daniel Bryan
  3. Antonio Cesaro eliminated by John Cena
  4. John Cena eliminated by Randy Orton due to interference from Bray Wyatt
  5. Daniel Bryan eliminated by Randy Orton due to interference from Kane
That's all I have to say for now. Raw is about to start. Have a good week!

2/17/2014- UFC Fight Night results, preview of WWE Raw

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Let's cut to the chase, shall we? Here we go!


UFC Fight Night took place at Jaragua de Sul in Brazil this past Saturday on FOX Sports 1. Here are the results:

Please forgive me using Wikipedia directly. I am using an iPad to type up this post today.

As I mentioned earlier, if WWE and NBC Universal can't come to an agreement, WWE is allowed to meet with other partners. As of this weekend, WWE is officially a free agent in the US television market. More will be mentioned when news breaks out. Also, tonight's Raw is the go-home show to the Elimination Chamber PPV. What's notable about this is that Elimination Chamber is the last PPV under the traditional model as WWE Network launches the day after the PPV.

That's all I have to say for now. Have a nice week!

2/10/2014- WWE TV rights with NBCUniversal set to expire February 14th

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. As you all know, the NFL season has ended and MLB season hasn't started yet so from now up to WrestleMania, Wrestling with Green Pinstripes will be "wrestling heavy". MMA will be covered as well, but that's a discussion for another time. For now, let's discuss the WWE, shall we? Here we go!


As you have heard, WWE is currently re-negotiating a deal with NBCUniversal in terms of getting a new TV deal. This comes not too long after WWE announced their plans for WWE Network. Today, an update has emerged from the New York Post about this.

An exclusive negotiating period ended last week with no deal in sight. We hear the pressure is on for a deal to get done in the next few days.
An industry source told On the Money, “NBCU has until Friday, Feb. 14, to respond to WWE’s final offer.”
To read more on this: http://nypost.com/2014/02/08/valentines-breakup-nbcuniversal-and-wwe-may-split-up/. That means if a deal is not reached by the end of this week, WWE is open to listening to other networks for carriage rights to Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown (which currently air on USA Network and Syfy, respectively). However, NBCU is allowed to match the offer as well later on. Once more details are shared, I will pass along the information.

YES Network covered this topic about the WWE getting new TV deals during their show called "Forbes SportsMoney". Keep in mind, this is a few months outdated but for the most part it's spot on.

Speaking of Raw, tonight Raw will be emanating from Los Angeles, CA. Betty White is scheduled to guest star on the show.

That's all I have to say for now. Have a good week!

2/3/2014- Seattle Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII, preview of WWE Raw, more

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Let's cut to the chase, shall we? Here we go!


As you all know, yesterday was the season finale of the 2013-14 NFL Season. And that means the Super Bowl took place between Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Not only did Seattle won the Super Bowl, they completely massacred the Denver Broncos. If you did not see this game, you didn't miss a thing. This game was completely a disaster for Denver and no effort was shown at all. You can say the game was already over before halftime. This isn't the first Super Bowl to end in a blowout, but it was the first Super Bowl that Peyton Manning participated that ended in a blowout. Manning will always be known as a great quarterback, but this was not his finest hour at all. Here are the highlights:

Congratulations to the +Seattle Seahawks on winning Super Bowl XLVIII. Now that the NFL season is officially a wrap, time to focus on baseball season. Which means you won't be hearing anything football related (unless circumstances warrant) after this until preseason.

If you haven't heard, CM Punk walked out on the WWE last week, likely due to burnout. It is unknown whether Punk will return to WWE or not. Here is a recap of what happened last week in the latest edition of "WWE in 5".

UFC 169 took place in Prudential Center in Newark, NJ this past Saturday night. Overall, there were 12 fights on the card. 3 were streamed on UFC Fight Pass, 4 aired on FOX Sports 1, while the rest aired on PPV. Here are the results:

UFC Fight Pass

  • Neil Magny def. Gasan Umalatov via unanimous decision
  • Rashid Magomedov def. Tony Martin via unanimous decision
  • Clint Hester def. Andy Enz via unanimous decision
FOX Sports 1
  • Al Iaquinta def. Kevin Lee via unanimous decision
  • Nick Catone def. Tom Watson via split decision
  • Chris Cariasso def. Danny Martinez via unanimous decision
  • Alan Patrick def. John Makdessi via unanimous decision
  • Abel Trujillo def. Jamie Varner via KO at Round 2
  • Ali Bagautinov def. John Lineker via unanimous decision
  • Alistair Overeem def. Frank Mir via unanimous decision
  • Jose Aldo def. Ricardo Lamas via unanimous decision to retain the UFC Featherweight Championship
  • Renan Barao def. Urijah Faber via TKO at Round 1 to retain the UFC Bantamweight Championship

That's all I have to say for now. Have a good week!
