Aquaman: Behind The Scenes

It is really cool to see how they shoot some of this stuff.

The harnesses needed to do the swimming was especially neat looking. Never thought about how they have to create that, and how it's different than flying.

Shawn Michaels Talks Roman Reigns' Leukemia Diagnosis

The amount of Roman Reigns content here has obviously slowed due to his absence from WWE.

This interview with Shawn Michaels was interesting enough that I thought it should be share.

I have no intention of sharing every WWE wrestler's take on Roman or anything like that, but I appreciated Shawn's comments in particular.

The first part that jumped out to me was how Shawn viewed Roman as someone like him and others he worked with.
It's someone in your line work, a person that you know, a person that you understand is a leader of this locker room, a leader of this generation, a role that once you have played or have seen other people play and understanding that that guy is going through something tough.
One of the most interesting things to come out of Roman's absence is all of the discussion surrounding how valuable he was to the locker room, and was unquestionably one of the leaders there.

New WWE Champion Daniel Bryan V Universal Champion Brock Lesnar At Survivor Series

Thanks to Daniel Bryan's WWE Title win over AJ Styles last night on SmackDown, we are now getting Bryan v Brock at Survivor Series.

I wish I could say that match excited me, but I am completely UNfired up about it.

Part of it is I have almost zero interest in Brock Lesnar anymore. For me, all I wanted was to see him drop the Universal Championship to Roman Reigns (which finally happened thankfully). Once Roman forfeited the belt due to his illness I hoped to see BRAUN leave Crown Jewel with it, and now really only want to see Seth Rollins take it from him at WrestleMania 35.

Obviously, I didn't get the first thing, and I doubt I'm getting the second one either for that matter. So for now I'm stuck with Brock Lesnar Universal Champion.

SAW EXCLUSIVE: Fred Yehi V Arik Royal At ACTION Wrestling 5 (Friday, December 7, 2018 Tyrone, GA)

ACTION Wrestling is making it official!

Fred Yehi will be taking on Arik Royal at ACTION Wrestling 5 on Friday, December 7, 2018 in Tyrone, GA!

This is going to be a HOT one, and here's why. These two have crossed paths previously in ACTION, and it has not been pretty. Back at ACTION Wrestling 3 (August 17, 2018), Yehi accepted Royal's open challenge. The two had a banger of a match with Yehi earning the victory. Royal for his part played the respect card post-match, but unfortunately it was a trick as he sucker-punched Yehi.

Fast-forward to ACTION Wrestling 4 (October 26, 2018), and Royal attacked Yehi costing him entry into the match that will determine the inaugural ACTION Wrestling Champion at this show.

This one is also interesting because aside from a small contingent of Arik Royal fans that attend each ACTION show, he is largely despised by the crowd in Tyrone, GA. FOR INSTANCE, here you have my response to the attack after the handshake at ACTION Wrestling 4!

Snagged from Powerbomb.TV stream

Fred Yehi is the exact opposite. From ACTION Wrestling 1 in April 2018 on, Yehi has been completely embraced by that crowd. They LOVE the guy.

All of this sets up nicely for an excellent battle between a beloved hero, and a proper villain. I cannot wait to see it either.

Now for more information about the promotion in general and the card itself....

If you haven't started following ACTION on all social media accounts you need to get on that and ALL those links are available after the jump.

Tickets are not on sale yet for ACTION Wrestling 5 on December 7, 2018 in Tyrone, GA. Keep an eye here and on for those though. You won't want to miss that show as it will be historic.

ACTION Wrestling 5 is a benefit for Toys For Tots which is an organization close to The CEO's heart as he served in the USMC.

Who Should Take The Universal Title From Brock Lesnar?

Due to my dissatisfaction with Brock v BRAUN at Crown Jewel I did not do a piece on Brock Lesnar winning the Universal Title. The reason I didn't was it was absolutely going to come off like the whiny trash I don't want to read.

If you are curious what I do not like about Brock Lesnar as a top champion, the piece I wrote about why I wanted Brock over BRAUN before Crown Jewel explains it pretty well. 

That said, Brock is champion now so it did get me to thinking about a satisfying way to end that reign at some point.  I settled on what I want, and WWE has already started to lay the groundwork for it.

Before I reveal who that is I need to get one little piece of business out of the way and it relates to Roman Reigns.  Roman is obviously my favorite wrestler, but he's also had to step away from the business for the time-being due to the return of his leukemia.

Due to this indefinite leave from the ring, I do not and will not include Roman in any ideas I share here. My stance is that he's gone and will remain gone until a) we see an announced return or b) he suddenly returns.  Until we have one of those two scenarios you will not see me mentioning him as it relates to him wrestling or being involved in storylines.

With that little bit of housekeeping out of the way I will tell you exactly who I want to see win the Universal Title, and when I want to see it.

Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35

Now I do not love the idea of a Brock Lesnar title reign that lasts until Mania 35 for a lot of reasons I have already covered, but looking at where we are post-Crown Jewel I think this would be the right call.  To be completely clear, I would have gone with BRAUN as champion at Crown Jewel, but I am just looking at where we are right now today.

Right now Seth Rollins is absolutely the man that should put The Beast down, and there's no better place than Mania 35.  Pushing it until then lets you wrap up Seth v Dean Ambrose first, and then gives you the big feelgood moment on the biggest show of the year.
