Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) - Trailer 2

This movie looks like a lot of fun. For the wrestling fans reading this, there are some Roman Reigns shots in here too.

PlayStation 5 Details

FULL DETAILS in this Wired article.

I'd love to be an early-adopter of the PS5, but if the rumored release date of late-2020 is true I doubt I can swing one that soon.

Joker (2019) Teaser Trailer

This one dropped while I was on vacation, and taking a break from the site. This trailer BLEW ME AWAY, and confirmed to me that Phoenix was absolutely going to deliver as the Joker.

Star Wars: Episode IX (2019) Teaser Trailer

Watch through the end if you want to know the title of the new film. I left it out of the title here intentionally. It looks really interesting.

They apparently are taking a break from Star Wars films for a little while which I think is a good idea. I say that as someone who enjoyed both The Last Jedi, and Solo.

Mattel WWE Elite Series 68

Look at that perfect Roman Reigns Universal Champion from SummerSlam 2018 figure. If I'm not mistaken there is also a variant version of that Mabel figure.

Two Prospective WWE Feuds I Am Fired Up About!

There are two different rumored feuds coming to WWE that are controversial, but I am ALL IN on.

One is actually underway already, and it's Lacey Evans taking on WWE SmackDown and Raw Women's Champion, Becky Lynch.

The other is more of a rumor, but makes a ton of sense Roman Reigns versus...Baron Corbin.

Starting with Lacey v Becky, I like it in part because that cheapshot Lacey took the other day on Raw (skip ahead to 3:15 if you want to get right to their interaction) was the PERFECT payoff to her random appearance gimmick she's been doing.

Personality wise, The Lady (Lacey) v The Man (Becky Two Belts) is a outstanding clash.

WrestleMania 35 Review

WrestleMania 35 is in the books, and I thought it ended up being an all-timer.

The biggest news coming out of it was that all three of the big faces won their respective titles (Becky Lynch the Raw and SmackDown Women's, Kofi Kingston the WWE Title, and Seth Rollins the Universal Title).

With that we got the feel-good Mania many of us hoped we'd get or HappyMania as it was referred to at points.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole show, and did not really buy the complaints that it was too long. It is a lot of wrestling, but it's one day a year and I had a good time taking it all in.

I know it's tougher when you're in the stadium (my WrestleMania 33 experience in Orlando, FL confirms this), but for the home viewer I thought it was a largely overblown complaint.

Let's look at each match (after the jump!)...

WWE Hall Of Fame 2019 Class

The 2019 WWE Hall Of Fame class is as follows, and this will be updated as more names are announced.

If available, I have linked the announcement videos from WWE's Official YouTube channel.

The class is now complete. Apparently there is no Celebrity Wing inductee this year.
