WRESTLING – WWE issued the following today:
JON STEWART AND SETH ROLLINS™ TO SETTLE THE SCORE TONIGHT ON MONDAY NIGHT RAW®
STAMFORD, Conn., March 2, 2015 – WWE® Superstar Seth Rollins and Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, will finally settle the score in their on-going feud, live tonight on Monday Night Raw at 8/7C on USA Network.
Rollins and Stewart’s feud began when Mr. Money in the Bank claimed he could make The Daily Show With Jon Stewart “watchable” by hosting the program when Stewart leaves. Stewart and Rollins have since traded verbal jabs and came face-to-face last Thursday when Rollins invaded The Daily Show With Jon Stewart during Stewart’s “Moment of Zen” and challenged him to face him once and for all at Monday Night Raw.
Stewart, a longtime fan of WWE, is the host of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, a satirical news program that airs on Comedy Central. Stewart announced on February 10, 2015, during a taping of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart that he will leave the show before the end of 2015. This Sunday, March 8, Stewart will host Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs on Comedy Central at 8pm ET/PT.
This is me right now, anxiously awaiting Jon Stewart and Seth Rollins going face to face on Raw. Will they wrestle at WrestleMania? Will Randy Orton defend Jon Stewarts honor? Will J & J Security get involved and then get immediately beaten up? (yes) The possibilities are endless, and I can’t wait (just like every other week) to watch Raw tonight.
Mark Cuban & Chris Jericho Have Joined The Cast Of ‘Sharknado 3′ As The President & A Roller-Coaster Ride Operator
Sharknado Tres – Mark Cuban and Ann Coulter have joined the growing list of guest stars for the third TV movie in the phenomenon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Launching in July, Sharknado 3 will be set in Washington, D.C., this time and, per Syfy, will “cause mass destruction in the nation’s capital” before it roars down the Eastern Seaboard.
Entrepreneur/Dallas Mavericks owner Cuban of Shark Tank will play the president, while conservative commentator/author Coulter will play the VP.
They join a rapidly growing list of guest stars set to cameo in the third film, including Bo Derek as May, the mother to star Tara Reid‘s April; Jerry Springer, appearing as Mr. White, a manic tourist; ‘N Sync’s Chris Kirkpatrick as a pool lifeguard; and Chris Jericho, who will play Bruce, a roller-coaster ride operator.
I can now rest easy knowing that Sharknado 3 is actually happening, and the confirmed cast is beyond my wildest dreams. Mark Cuban is confirmed as the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES and former/current professional wrestler Chris Jericho is confirmed as a roller coaster operator. Cuban seems like he got the better deal, but I’m just happy that both of them will be apart of this legendary three-quell. The cameos round out with a sex symbol from three decades ago, an insane talk show host and the most obscure member of N’Sync. To say Sharknado 3 is going to be amazing might be the understatement of the century. I might just stare at my Twitter screen until July so I don’t miss any Sharknado related tweets between now and then.
Recently, WWE wrestlers Zack Ryder and Adam Rose have been having a “war of words” on Twitter, and I’ve put my two cents into the conversation of “putting the Internet Championship on the line!” when (or if) they actually face each other. While I haven’t heard anything about the Internet Championship being made into an actual title, this should be the feud that introduces it.
If WWE did decide to make an Internet Championship belt, would they keep the current look of the title or would they revamp the title all together? The obvious answer is that they would revamp the belt so 1. Everyone would be able to wear it around their waste and 2. Zach Ryder’s face wouldn’t be on it at all times (although he should get some credit for its creation). The next question that needs to be answered is how and when should the championship be defended? Would it be on pre or post show Raw’s or pay per views? I think it’s a natural fit for NXT, because it’s becoming THE premier wrestling show on the WWE Network and unlike Raw or Smackdown, it isn’t on television.
The WWE spends a lot of their time and money focusing on social media content. They are very active on both Twitter and YouTube, and you would think that they would want an Internet Champion to be the “Face” of their online marketing campaigns, but for some reason they haven’t pulled the trigger. WWE has begun to build minor stories here and there that start or are continued on the internet, but they still haven’t built up enough storylines on the internet that could ultimately end with a feud and title match in the ring. With an “Internet Championship” I believe that not only this could help push WWE online products, but also help in the building of these minor stories that are eventually showcased on television.
The superstars involved with this concept would most likely be the “low” card and “mid” card talents that rarely get used on many of the shows. If the WWE utilizes the Internet Championship storylines correctly, they can help build up new talents that could eventually transition to bigger feuds on both Raw and Smackdown.
WWE has an active social media presence combined with their ability to constantly push online properties makes creating and sustaining storylines centered on an Internet Championship a smart move. The progression of this championship, the storylines surrounding it and the superstars participating for it will benefit their social media marketing for years to come.

There Is No Dress.
— Jaden Smith (@officialjaden) February 27, 2015
Well, there you have it. As usual, Jaden Smith, the moral compass of our society, has the final word on another controversy. Obviously there is no dress. OBVIOUSLY. I bet everyone feels really silly now that it turns out there is no dress. White and gold, black and blue. It was all made up. Now we can all go back to our regularly scheduled lives until another controversy pops up that we’ll need Jaden Smith to clear up for us. In the meantime, here is my response to Jaden Smith:
Here’s my take on Shia LaBeouf’s rat tail: this was a long, sophisticated plan. All of LaBeouf’s recent crazy behavior was all planned out so when he finally unleashed the rat tail on the world, the media would just chalk it up to another crazed move by a legitimate mad man. It’s genius, really. If Shia went out in public randomly with this rat tail without his crazy behavior preceding it then I think it would get universally hated on. But Shia’s hairstyle is the least craziest thing he’s done over the past few years. A rat tail is as normal as apple pie compared to getting thrown out of Broadway shows and fighting homeless people over food. I really can’t see the rat tail making a furious comeback, but if I had to pick one guy to lead the charge, it would be Shia LaBeouf, and if in a few years half the population is looking ratty, we will have Shia LaBeouf to thank.
While the overall episodes for this season’s SNL have been hot and cold, the pre taped sketches have consistently been very good, and ‘Say What You Wanna Say’ continues that trend. The best thing about this sketch is that absolutely everyone can relate to it. Every one of us has gone out to the bar or just out in public and run into someone that you know you’ll never, ever hang out with or talk to, but you’ll be nice and say you will. Well, not anymore. I might just walk around with a boom box and every time I don’t want to do something or talk to someone I’ll press play and blare ‘Brave’. Cubical office life will never be the same again.
Eric Matthews (Will Friedle) Will Be The Voice Of Star-Lord In The ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Animated Series
Plays With Squirrels – After the release of Guardians Of The Galaxy back in August of last year, Marvel and Disney have made sure to capitalize on the film’s instant success. The film was such a hit with critics and projected for such high box office numbers that a sequel was announced at Comic-Con International, a week before the movie was even released in theaters. After its release, Guardians spawned everything imaginable in merchandising, from action figures to raccoon ear headphones, and made an overnight action star/sex symbol of Chris Pratt.
Back in October, at New York Comic-Con, Disney and Marvel announced plans for a Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series on the Disney XD channel. With all of the success the franchise has seen it is no surprise that Disney would approach Marvel about utilizing Guardians the same way they did Star Wars with Star Wars Rebels. While the series does not have a solid premiere date other than some time this year, more news has come forward about casting voices for the Guardians. Today, Disney has announced that Boy Meets World actor Will Friedle will be providing the voice of Star-Lord, the character made famous by action star/sex symbol Chris Pratt.
It’s always wonderful when two of your favorite things come together to make a beautiful baby, and that is exactly what happened here. Will Friedle, most famously known as Eric Matthews on Boy Meets World, will be voicing Star-Lord for the new Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series on Disney. If you love Boy Meets World (how could you not) and Guardians Of The Galaxy (HOW COULD YOU NOT) then this is pretty cool news. There’s a solid chance I won’t watch the show, but who cares, because Eric Matthews is back on a television screen (sort of) which is right where he belongs. The only left to do is for the creators of the animated series to sneak Plays With Squirrels into an episode and I’ll be able to die a happy man.
Just in case you were looking for something to do in your spare time you could always recreate the maze from ‘The Shining’. Because that wouldn’t be incredibly hard to do or anything. My first reaction, this is fucking awesome. My second reaction, this is fucking AWESOME. It makes me angry how talented mr Adam Savage is not to mention what a fantastic shop he has. Hey Adam, got any internships available? Teach me!
