Ewan McGregor Clarifies Situation With Obi-Wan Series Delay

I certainly hope that this is all true. If you're not aware there was a report that the series had been canceled altogether and that McGregor had stepped away from it.

About a week later another report came out that they were redoing the scripts, and that's the report he is responding to in the SuperHeroHype post in the Tweet.

All of this chatter concerns me because I am really excited about the prospect of this series which is supposed to take place about 8 years or so after Revenge Of The Sith, and that would be 12 year before Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

Incredible Indoor Lawn Bowling Shot

Two things about this...

ONE, I didn't know this sport existed because while it looks like Bocce it isn't.

TWO, this is an incredible shot.

Sir Patrick Stewart Done As Professor X

I looked around a bit to find this particular post again because I liked that it referenced that quote about Logan (which is a fantastic movie and he is fantastic in it as always).

The X-Men film series has had its ups and downs, but one thing is for sure...they absolutely NAILED the casting of Sir Patrick Stewart as Charles "Professor X" Xavier.

Andrade v Rey Mysterio - US Title Ladder Match On Raw

This match was absolutely bonkers. There was a certain sloppiness to it that absolutely worked in its favor.

A lot of little brutal moments such as this one, and then some obviously brutal BIG moments like Andrade's Hamerlock DDT that won the match.

Bonus points here for using this to setup the Humberto Carrillo v Andrade US Title match at the Royal Rumble.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)

By the time I knew better Star Wars was already the biggest thing in the world or at least it seemed that way.

Born in 1978, I don't remember a time before Return Of The Jedi being released so the Original Trilogy (OT) was already complete by the time I knew any better.

So that was how I understood Star Wars, and of course I had fond memories of the very first one now referred to as Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (I will refer to it as ANH from this point forward).

I mention that I grew up on them because I think that matters here. I've seen several Twitter discussion surrounding these movies, and there seems to be some differences of taste based on whether you saw them as a child or later on in life.

With that said, I have always had ANH near the top of my rankings. It's the one that started it all, and introduced us to a ton of great characters, and had visual effects that were incredible.

The Credibility Of The WWE Hall Of Fame: Does It Matter?

The short answer to the title of this article is a resounding "No" for me. Here's why that was on my mind.

With WrestleMania season approaching, and two inductees (Batista and nWo) already set for the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020, the discourse surrounding it was already on my mind.

As the Rocky Johnson memorial video package aired on SmackDown, the footage of him at his Hall of Fame induction in 2008 caught my eye.

It prompted this Tweet thread...

Looking At The Star Wars Movies

After several Twitter discussions, and the culmination of "The Skywalker Saga" with Episode IX - Rise Of Skywalker, I have finally decided to tackle the Star Wars movies here on South Atlanta Wrestling Dot Com.

It is my opinion that if you're watching the Star Wars movies for the first time that you should watch them in the order they were released.

Due to that I decided to pretty much do that with this Star Wars series I am doing EXCEPT I am putting Rogue One and Solo at the end.

I hope to have the first one Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) up before the end of next week.
