This weekend, reports made the rounds that a 10-year old boy saved his two-year old brother from drowning, using CPR techniques he claimed to have learned from watching Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the film, “San Andreas.”

Touched by the story, the part-time WWE Superstar and full-time Hollywood A-list star took to social media to comment on it, inviting the boys to the set of his upcoming film, “Skyscraper.”

“I gotta shake the hand of a real life 10 [year]old hero,” wrote Johnson via his official Instagram page (see below). “Jacob, I’m gonna fly you and your family out to Vancouver so I can meet you. Hopefully, your little 2 [year]old brother, Dylan is well enough to fly because I wanna meet him too.”

The Rock continued, “I’ll have some very nice people contact your family in the upcoming days to make the arrangements. Can’t wait to meet you big man. And make sure you bring your sweet tooth!”

I gotta shake the hand of a real life 10yr old hero. Jacob, I'm gonna fly you and your family out to Vancouver so I can meet you. Hopefully, your little 2yr old brother, Dylan is well enough to fly because I wanna meet him too. I'll have some very nice people contact your family in the upcoming days to make the arrangements. Can't wait to meet you big man. And make sure you bring your sweet tooth!

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Chris Jericho talked about the possibility of UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor coming to WWE.

According to Jericho, McGregor to WWE is a “no brainer.”

“Conor comes out of [his fight with Floyd Mayweather]looking like 100 million bucks, and Floyd retires 50-0. So will Conor McGregor end up in WWE? I think it’s a no-brainer. It might not be this year or the year after that because there’s a lot of money that you got to spend to get him in there, but a guy that yappy that knows the concept of cutting a wrestling promo — same with Floyd.”

Jericho also thinks that we’ll see Ronda Rousey in WWE someday as well:

“That’s why Floyd did WWE, because he got a lot of his stuff from WWE ideas – so I definitely think Conor will end up there. It’s just a matter of when he wants to. I also think Ronda Rousey will end up there one way or another as well.”

On Monday’s Raw, John Cena and Roman Reigns had another pretty noteworthy segment together, but this time, you could argue that Reigns got the better of Cena on the mic.

Much like with last week’s segment, Reigns and Cena touched on a lot of real-life topics that aren’t normally discussed in WWE storylines. By this point, we know the two aren’t “shooting” on each other — or maybe they are, but either way, these segments are designed to come off as a “shoot.”

As previously noted, Cena got the better of Reigns last week, and on Tuesday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about how WWE wanted to make sure that Reigns got the “last laugh” this week.

“Roman Reigns was so much better this week,” Meltzer said. “You could see on this one that [Reigns] was going right on the script, and John Cena was going right on the script, and they knew what happened last week, and they knew that John Cena got the better of him, and it was very clear that this was designed for Roman Reigns to get the better of John Cena and get the last laugh.”

WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair recently spoke with Uproxx to promote WrestleMania’s return to New Orleans next year, and below are some interview highlights:

Can you give me a non-Charlotte prediction or something on your WrestleMania wishlist, as a fan of the WWE?

Click Here: Ferrari Racing Suit

“Honestly, for a women’s singles match. I know that WrestleMania is a day that we try to get everyone involved because it is the biggest day of the year. It’s such a family event. But I would like a women’s singles match.”

Whether or not you’re in it?

“Competitively, I wanna be in it, I’m not gonna lie. I would be upset if I wasn’t. But at the same time, having a singles match for the women just goes to show how much WWE has invested in the women as a whole, and how important women’s wrestling is to kids and families. To send that message out there that women can do anything they want in a male-dominated world.”

Let’s say it’s you. Who is the dream opponent? We have a time machine, we’ve got some magic potions. Anyone; past, present, future. I also wanna know who on the current roster you would most like to face if we got one-on-one, last match, WrestleMania, New Orleans Super Dome.

“Last match? Maybe fatal four-way, Four Horsewomen, I think that’s the main event match. I don’t really have a dream singles, I just dream of main eventing. When I think of WrestleMania, you think of so many outside celebrities and athletes getting involved. Maybe a WrestleMania moment would be Queen versus Queen, me versus Stephanie McMahon. I see storylines that could lead into WrestleMania like that, but [choosing]one person is so hard.”

WON NEWSLETTER: October 4, 2021 Observer Newsletter: WWE Extreme Rules review, G1 Climax updates

WWE’s Extreme Rules show on 9/26 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH was decent. Most of the matches were good, but there was nothing blow away.

The show was built around two bouts, Roman Reigns vs. Demon Finn Balor for the Universal title and Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair for the women’s title. Both had gimmicked finishes.

Click Here: canterbury-bankstown bulldogs jersey

The Demon match ended with Demon ont the top rope when the top rope suddenly collapsed and he fell into the ring injured, and got pinned by a spear. The bout had been the most exciting on the show, but at one point the idea was that Demon had died. Then his music played and he acted as though he was resurrected, and in fact, that was the verbiage used, and he made a comeback until the rope broke.

In the Smackdown women’s title match, Belair powered out of the disarmer and set up the KOD when Sasha Banks ran into attack Belair for the DQ. Banks also laid out Lynch after the match to set up a three-way program.

WEDNESDAY NEWS UPDATE

WWE
On his radio show, Pat McAfee said he won’t be at Crown Jewel: “Nope. They’re heading over there. I wasn’t invited. Good luck. I’m not supposed to be part of that, I’m happy I’m not going or whatever. The show, everyone says it’s insane over there. It’s awesome. Until they get stuck there and then I gotta call Buffalo SmackDown.”
Dominik Mysterio appeared on this week’s edition of Out of Character with Ryan Satin. Dominik said he thinks the end goal is for him to eventually take over the Rey Mysterio name:

Most definitely. I think the long goal here, the endgame, is to eventually take over the Rey Mysterio name. That’s the legacy within it. He’s Rey Mysterio. It’s only right to make a Jr. Traditionally in Lucha culture, and in Hispanic culture, that’s tradition. That’s what you do. I kind of just showed up and Dom Mysterio organically happened. Everything happened so fast.

We didn’t really get a chance to put these little things together, but we definitely have talked about it. He’s mentioned before that the mask is something I have to earn along with the name. If one day he wants to pass it on to me after he retires, or he wants to make me earn it after he retires or something, whatever it is, I’m up for it. I know that name belongs to me and it’s only right. Hispanically, culturally, it’s only right, but whatever he wants at the end of the day because he’s the one that made it what it is. I’ll respect his decision whatever it is.

Ronda Rousey posted an update on how her body is recovering after giving birth:

10 days postpartum – my mom @annmaria7gen went back to training 6 days after having my sister Maria, then made weight and won the judo US Open 6 weeks later… when she was pregnant with me she only gained 12 pounds – and I was an 8 lbs baby! I’ve decided to let her keep those records 

My body seems to be recovering faster than I hoped, but I won’t really know if Pō tossed a grenade on the way out till my 6 week checkup. Since breaking both my hands and getting pregnant it feels like I lost a lifetime of muscle – it’s easy to get discouraged over all that lost progress – but if anything I’m looking forward to getting cleared to train again even more. This is an opportunity start over and mold my body into its next phase #BaddestMomOnThePlanet #ThisIsntEvenMyFinalForm

Sonya Deville, Adam Pearce, and Drew McIntyre appeared on this morning’s episode of WWE’s The Bump.
WWE’s YouTube channel uploaded Batista vs. Bobby Lashley from the October 6, 2006 episode of SmackDown, AJ Lee vs. Brie Bella for the Divas Championship from Battleground 2013, and Dolph Ziggler vs. Batista in a no DQ match from the May 23, 2014 episode of SmackDown.
Other Wrestling
Darby Allin vs. Nick Comoroto has been added to the lineup for tonight’s Dynamite. We’ll also hear from CM Punk on the show.
The Elite (Kenny Omega, Adam Cole & The Young Bucks) vs. Bryan Danielson, Christian Cage & Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus & Jungle Boy) is kicking off tonight’s Dynamite.
Tony Khan spoke to Sports Illustrated and The Wrap about the second anniversary of Dynamite. The Wrap asked Khan to set the record straight on what ratings measurement AEW cares about and how much they care about ratings: “The (18-49) demo is the number that we are measured by, and that’s the chart that we receive from our partners at TNT. I have a meeting with TNT executives every week and we go through the ratings. We used to just go through the ratings for Dynamite, but now we also go through the ratings for Rampage and look at patterns. The main thing we tend to look at is 18-49. We’ll look at different splits, by gender and different demographics, but absolutely the 18-49 overall is the bread and butter number that we always look at at the start of the meeting.”
Cody Rhodes told PopCulture that he won’t be turning heel in AEW and won’t be going back on his stipulation to not challenge for the AEW World Championship:

This will disappoint so many and maybe it won’t, maybe this will excite, but two things I can guarantee you. And I’m not saying this to wave one hand while you’re not looking at the other. I’m telling this from the most honest standpoint, I am not going to turn heel on this company. And I would retire before I did that. Now I’m the head of the community outreach group. I have a little girl now. I’m not going to be doing heel stuff on TV.

I am not turning heel and I’m not going back on my word to challenge for the title. That stuff was real. It hurts. It is a large regret that that ever happened, but it did happen and I can live with it. And I got to do that dance with Chris Jericho, and I will not go back on that stipulation, me personally. If Tony wanted to change things he could. And again, you can never say never in wrestling, but I do think there’s this idea that evil corporate need would turn the stipulation around and challenge for the world title, that I can say never will happen.

During an appearance on Reinvented with Jen Eckhart, Chris Jericho said he’d love to see Will Ospreay in AEW: “I’d love to see Will in AEW. I actually called him way way back when we were first starting out to see what kind of interest he had. I think there are a lot of guys that want to work in Japan and spend time there, I know because I was one of them. I’ve been to Japan over 60 times in my career. There will come a time when Will decides he wants to work in his own country, I know he’s English, but in America, that idea is much more similar to England than Japan is. There’s something to be said about being a world-wide television superstar. You won’t get that working for New Japan Pro Wrestling. It’s great to be there, but the real big leagues lie in America. I would love to see Will working in America and I think at some point, that will probably happen.”
Bryan Danielson was interviewed by 6ABC in Philadelphia.
Robbie Fox of Barstool Sports interviewed Preston “10” Vance.
Clark Connors and Alex Coughlin have been announced for Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 7. The event is being held at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Los Angeles on Friday, October 22.

TF1 innove ! Après Camille Combal dans plusieurs sketchs remarqués, c’est au tour de Laurence Boccolini de proposer une parodie réussie afin de promouvoir le prochain numéro de son Grand concours consacré aux animateurs. Ce 31 janvier 2019, le compte Twitter de la première chaîne a en effet dévoilé une parodie de Sept à huit dans laquelle une personne plus ou moins anonyme, une certaine “Madame B” se disant proche de l’animatrice de 55 ans, se lâche sur les coulisses de la télévision.

Elle déclare donc, le visage caché dans la pénombre et la voix modifiée : “Il faut dire la vérité, la plupart des animateurs viennent pour le champagne gratuit en coulisses et pour manger, parce que ça mange un animateur, c’est un ver solitaire devant un prompteur.” Et de dérouler ses confidences : “Ils se détestent tous ! Celui qui a des primes snobe celui qui a des access, celui qui a des access snobe celui qui fait des trucs l’après-midi. Celui qui connaît Drucker snobe tout le monde !

Malheureusement, Madame B se trahit assez vite et lance : “Ils me détestent ! Il y en a qui écorchent mon nom exprès devant le public, je n’en peux plus. L’humain n’est pas joli monsieur !” Un faux pas appuyé par le fait que la lumière se rallume quelques secondes. “On m’a vue là ?“, s’inquiète aussitôt la star de la Une. Et d’ajouter : “Je prends des risques en témoignant, hein ! Déjà qu’on m’a refilé le concours de trampolines, je ne voudrais pas me retrouver au jokari.

Le Grand concours des animateurs, c’est vendredi 1er février à 21h sur TF1.

Un sketch à découvrir dès à présent ci-dessous :

– On a recent episode of his Conversation With The Big Guy podcast, former WWE Superstar Ryback shared his thoughts on WWE airing live on Christmas Day, what he thinks of Roman Reigns as a performer, check out the highlights below:

On Roman Reigns:

“I love Roman Reigns. I think most of the guys there [in WWE do as well]. I think it’s a whole different dynamic than [the situation with John]Cena. I think more guys [like Reigns]. He works really hard, but he’s always very humble. He is very [respectful]and he never walks around backstage with an ‘I’m better than you’ attitude. So, to me, not to say that John does that or anything. It’s just that Roman comes off different. I don’t know if it’s from being raised in the business and whatnot. But I’ve worked with him very closely over the years, especially early on, so and the guy can go and he’s super talented, so I’m happy for all of his success.”

On WWE airing live on Christmas Day:

“Whether it was USA [Network]’s idea or Vince [McMahon]’s idea, who knows whose idea it was? But they’re looking at it as a way to make money and the problem with that is you’re dealing with human lives. We have all these other days of the year we could run. We could do two tapings the week before. I just feel bad for the guys because they have no choice. No one can say anything there. I guarantee you not one of them wants to be there.”

– WWE Superstar Chris Jericho was a guest on Ring Rust Radio this week and discussed a wide variety of topics, they sent us the following transcription:

You recently released your latest book, No Is a Four-Letter Word: How I Failed Spelling but Succeeded in Life. Why did you feel now was the right time to write this book and what are you hoping to accomplish with its release?

“It’s pretty philosophical man. Like there is some kind of otherworldly design behind it. What happened was I’ve already written three autobiographies in the course of seven years. I love to write and I have lots to write about. A fourth autobiography at this stage in my life might be a little pretentious, like does the world really need another Jericho autobiography? I’m not exactly Jack Kerouac or whatever. So, I thought I would answer a question that gets asked quite often in how you did all these things you do. How did you make it in wrestling? How did you make it in music? How do you continue to do all these things?

“So, I sat down I came up with 20 principles of things I learned over the years from celebrities, family members, people that I know, fictional characters, and put them all down. Twenty principles like I said, the David Bowie principle of always reinvent yourself; The Vince McMahon principle of work hard then work harder; the Steve Austin principle, always be a little bit of an asshole. All these little things that helped me get these goals accomplished that I wanted to accomplish. It became almost like a motivational book or self-help book and it never really intended to be that way but that’s the kind of way it morphed. Now that it’s out, it’s really cool to see people’s reactions and how people are gaining a lot of advice from things that I’ve learned and applying it to their own life. It is a pretty cool feeling.”

Southpaw Regional Wrestling is one of our favorite things this year. What was your experience like filming that and playing the role of Clint Bobski and do you think we’ll get more episodes in the future?

“It’s something I heard about a while back when they came up with the idea and asked if I wanted to be involved. I said yea I want to be the backstage interviewer Clint Bobski. That’s the name that I used in college when I went to do creative communications, television classes and radio classes. Whenever we were doing box sports casts or mock radio on sports, I was always Clint Bobski. I love that name and I don’t know why. I used it again for Southpaw and it was a lot of fun because I used to watch wrestling like that. Stampede Wrestling and local wrestling in Winnipeg it was called the FWA. They were filmed in the exact same type of cheap gritty videotapes and the backstage announcers were over the top and cheesy. They were playing backstage announcers saying things like, “Oh my goodness look at what we have here! I have never seen such a thing!”

“It was a lot of fun to do and people were very confused early this summer when I came back for Smackdown for one night only and they thought that I was back. I wasn’t back I was there because I was filming the second season of Southpaw Wrestling and asked if I could do a match and thought might as well while I am here. I would love to see a few more but I don’t know if the series took off virally like they thought it would and I am not sure what the numbers are on that but it was a lot of fun while we did it and hopefully get to do more.

“I think a lot of times the initial one is always the best because it’s such a surprise and nobody really knows what they’re getting into. Where with the second one everybody wanted to get involved and some of the characters weren’t as strong. I think Miz’s guy was terrible in it whatever he was called. I just thought it was terrible and it wasn’t funny. I thought the Butcher Boys weren’t funny. The first one was really funny because no one was really trying. They were just being whatever they wanted to be. It’s like a sequel to a movie where you stumble onto something and it’s never as good as the original. If they do more Clint Bobski will be there and if they don’t it was fun while it lasted.”

Your band Fozzy’s latest hit is Judas, I think it’s an awesome song and it’s done so well for you on the charts. I know they’re different mediums, but how does the feeling of having a hit song like Judas compare to a big accomplishment in wrestling like winning a title or really getting a character over or something to that effect?

“I think it might be even harder to get a number one song in music. It’s hard to become a champion too, so they would be very similar. It’s a real pat on the back for years of hard work. This is not a song that went to number one instantly. It went from 15 to 10 to nine to eight to seven, so we’re building this fan base and I think there’s a lot of people that have heard of Fozzy but never actually heard Fozzy before and now that’s changing. There are a lot of people checking out the band because of what they heard about Judas did or they know about Jericho and wrestling and they go back to check out Fozzy and then they suddenly hear the greatest song we have done in our career.

“We’ve had successful songs in the past, but nothing like this. It’s on a whole different level and a whole different world. It’s really cool that after all this hard work we put in, which is the whole motto of my life which is no is a four-letter word. When people told me I would never make it in music and guess what? We just did. That’s very, very cool to see the fan base growing and the buzz about the band growing and we are still getting started. Judas is still rising in the charts which is great. It has been a pretty cool experience but very, very well deserved after years and years of hard work.”
