Kurt Angle made a long-awaited return to WWE programming after WrestleMania 33, taking over as the general manager of Raw for Mick Foley. Although the official word is that the WWE will likely refuse to clear the 48-year-old Hall of Famer to compete in the ring again, Angle is still holding out hope.
Nintendo is riding high right now and with good reason. They shipped one of the hottest toys of the holiday season last November with the NES Classic and couldn’t keep the thing on store shelves (the jury’s still out on whether this was due to higher than expected demand or Nintendo simply not having enough supply), and now their home console fortunes seem to have changed for the better thanks to the early success of the Nintendo Switch. This return to form couldn’t have come at a better time for Nintendo, as the company has struggled in recent years to remain relevant in an industry that, in some ways, had started to leave them behind.
Nintendo has announced new details about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s first downloadable content pack, scheduled to drop later this year.
According to TMZ Sports, former WWE superstar X-Pac (real name Sean Waltman) was arrested in Los Angeles on the weekend when he tried to carry marijuana and meth through a customs checkpoint.
News recently broke that Sony and Tristar Pictures are teaming up to make a dramatized biography film about Vince McMahon, the man behind pro wrestling’s rise to pop-culture relevance in the 1980s and beyond (and still going strong today). The movie apparently has the official backing of the WWE CEO, with WWE Studios partnering on to help with production. The movie, given the ridiculous/awesome title of Pandemonium, is still in the very early stages of having a script finalized. No director or actors are attached to the project, but there is one glaring question that needs to be answered — who will play Vince McMahon?
With The Undertaker retiring at WrestleMania 33, the mantle for “spooky magic evil dude” is apparently falling on Bray Wyatt. Rather than having a gimmick of being an actual dead guy, Wyatt is more of a Bayou voodoo man. So when the WWE announced that Wyatt would fight Randy Orton in a “House of Horrors” match at Payback, no one really knew what that meant.
To the surprise of many (read: everyone), Nintendo recently discontinued their wildly successful NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the Nintendo Entertainment System with 30 classic games. Amid the frantic rush to snatch up the last systems sitting on store shelves, the big question on everyone’s mind is why Nintendo would decide to stop selling that was still a hot ticket item nearly six months after its original release. It’s been speculated that Nintendo did so in order to focus their resources on manufacturing the Nintendo Switch — which sold 2.7 million units in March — or possibly because Nintendo plans to replace the NES Classic with a mini Super Nintendo later this year. Now, in a pair of new interviews, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé offers an explanation.
To the surprise of many — not least because the announcement came on a Thursday night — Nintendo has revealed the New Nintendo 2DS, which will hit store shelves in Australia/New Zealand on June 15 and the US on July 28. The new model has a recommended retail price of USD $150 / AUD $200.
Activision has released the first official trailer for Call of Duty: WWII, the next installment in the massively popular first-person shooter franchise that will see a return to a World War II setting.
