Let’s just get one thing out of the way, right off the top. Yes, you can gamble on pro wrestling, a “sport” that is entirely fake and predetermined. You may be asking yourself, what kind of stupid betting establishment would take bets on something where the outcome is already known? The answer is: well, a lot of them.

A weird thing happened last weekend. The WWE United States champion A.J. Styles made a surprise appearance at a NWA Wildside reunion event in Georgia, which is basically a small independent wrestling promotion. Typically, the WWE never allows their wrestlers to appear elsewhere, so it was a strange sight to behold.
During its Nintendo Direct video yesterday, Nintendo announced that several of its classic arcade titles will be making their way to the Switch.
Bruce Straley, co-director of The Last of Us and Uncharted 4 — two of the biggest PlayStation exclusives of the last decade — has announced that he will be leaving game development studio Naughty Dog following a year-long sabbatical.
Last week, the commissioner of SmackDown Live Shane McMahon snapped and assaulted Kevin Owens, who had been insulting the entire McMahon family name. Owens threatened to press charges (all kayfabe, of course) and general manager Daniel Bryan was told by Vince McMahon that he had to suspend Shane.
Hulk Hogan hasn’t been seen on any wrestling programming since the WWE cut ties with him after leaked audio from a sex tape revealed the Hulkster making racist comments. One multi-million dollar lawsuit later, which Hogan won against online blog Gawker Media, and the story has mostly faded away.
Earlier this year, Nintendo made the shocking (some would say infuriating) decision to discontinue the NES Classic Edition less than six months after its original release, but it appears as if the company has reversed direction and will now ship more of the consoles in 2018.
Brock Lesnar currently has a sweet deal with the WWE. He makes millions of dollars a year, but only has to show up a couple of times a month. He has to actually wrestle even less, usually only at major PPV shows or specially advertised appearances on Raw (plus the odd house show at places like Madison Square Garden). And his exclusive contract doesn’t even stop him from doing whatever else he might want, like show up at UFC 200 to battle Mark Hunt.
One of the most controversial moments in wrestling this year happened at a AAA show in Mexico, when female champion Sexy Star locked on a legit armbar submission move at the end of a four-way match at TripleMania XXV in mid-August.
