WWE Payback 2016: What to Expect!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

payback-2016-poster-2

It’s that time of year again for the PPV after Wrestlemania, which is known as Payback. Normally, this is a rather lackluster PPV when compared to the rest of the WWE events throughout the year, and this particular one seems no different, despite a couple of matches. I do expect some good moments, but I don’t expect a ton of titles to change hands here, if any really. Not only that, but we still have a ton of WWE Superstars out, including John Cena, Seth Rollins, Neville, and Randy Orton. You can add to that list Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, and Triple H not showing up, as well as The New Day not having a match either, however the latter will most likely do some promos. In other words, this just doesn’t seem like an exciting PPV at the moment. I hope I’m wrong. Maybe, just maybe Shinsuke Nakamura will show up and wrestle for two hours. Then again, maybe they’ll bring back ‘Firefly‘. Side note: why is Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt family on the poster for Payback, but they don’t have a match?

Hey guys, Jana here,

We’ve known for a few months that ‘Hairspray LIVE‘ was going to be next up for NBC, and two days ago we found out who two of the cast will be with Harvey Fierstein and Jennifer Hudson and you can read about their roles here , but we have two more names to add to the rapidly growing list – Martin Short and Derek Hough.

Hey guys, Jana here,

001-3

Walton Goggins is an incredibly talented actor and he shows his total commitment to whatever project he’s working on, at the time. Was he the lynch-pin character to Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight‘? Was he the beautiful and convincing Venus Van Damme on ‘Sons of Anarchy‘? I could go on all day long about what makes Goggins a fantastic actor, but I think I’ll just cut tot he chase and tell you about his newest project.

We always get a little excited when April rolls around and believe me it’s not because it’s tax season. We, at Boomstick.com love music as well as movies, and every April brings us… Record Store Day! The vinyl junkies of the world take in a deep breath as they step into a record store and the joy of that scent is similar to that of a bibliophile upon entering a library.

Daniel Radcliffe Goes Off-Broadway in ‘Privacy’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 12th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

Everyone’s favorite wizarding boy genius has developed a love for performing, sometimes on film and sometimes he prefers to hit the boards in a stage show. Daniel Radcliffe has chosen the latter for his latest project, ‘Privacy‘, to show at the Public Theater, an Off Broadway company that has recently hosted several other big names in Hollywood, Lupita Nyong’o, Claire Danes and Anne Hathaway. Not to mention it’s where the crazy-awesome ‘Hamilton‘ held its debut. On a side note, if you’ve not checked out ‘Hamilton‘, at least get the soundtrack, it is the very definition of epic.

Interview with Roman Reigns on ‘Wrestlemania 32’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 8th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Here is a fun interview with the current WWE Champion Roman Reigns, discussing his match with Triple H. He was a lot of fun and I just wish that WWE creative would let him be more of himself than the monotone guy he plays on television. He was quite funny. He tells me about his training and workout routine before big events like this, as well as how he keeps his hair in tact.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

shane-jump

As I’m recovering from seven insane days of ‘Wrestlemania 32‘ in Dallas, TX., I’ve had time to reflect, contemplate, saturate, and regurgitate every I event I attended. I had my box of Booty O’s to make sure I wasn’t Booty thru the weekend, met some good people, watched some amazing matches, talked with some WWE Superstars, and lost my voice when Shane-O-Mac put his life on the line for the WWE Business. To quote a certain former WWE announcer, it was a slobberknocker of a week for sure that hit me in the solar plexus more times than I’d like to admit. WWE really did it up big this year for Wrestlemania 32. Not only did they put on several good shows, but they also broke records. There was over 101,000 people in attendance at AT&T Stadium for Wrestlemania 32, beating the previous record from Wrestlemania 3 by quite a bit. Not only that, ticket sales and merch sales were way up as well from previous years. It seems like WWE is growing exponentially with more and more fans tuning in every week. That’s a good thing. Instead of writing a recap of the entire weekend, I’ll give you some details of some of the cooler things I witnessed over the past week.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

John_Cena_bio

Here is a fun interview with John Cena on ‘Wrestlemania 32‘ in Dallas, Texas at the Reunion Tower in 2016. He’s on top of his game and pretty funny. I even got to ask him what his favorite scenes in movies were, as well as if he misses the rap game. He even sheds some light on his shoulder injury and his recent popularity in meme form and prank phone calls. It was a fun interview.

I had the distinct honor again to talk with Stephanie McMahon about ‘Wrestlemania 32‘ in Dallas, TX. She wasn’t in her Authority character, and she answered a ton of questions about WWE and where it’s headed. I even got her to tell me her favorite scenes from film that relates to the wrestling business. She also tells me to Boooo her on stage. Hope you enjoy the interview, I know I sure did.

And just like Tom Nix stated, “We are on the Roman to Wrestlereignia.” All the pun intended. This is yet another fun-as-hell episode of the Multi-Media Men podcast of the WWE variety where myself, Tom Nix, and Angelic Heel, discussed WWE RAW this week and the matches that will take place at Wrestlemania 32 in Dallas, TX. We talk about what WWE Creative should desperately do with Roman Reigns to have the WWE Universe start to enjoy him, as well as talk about Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar fighting to the death.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen Shot 2016-03-11 at 10.20.21 PM

Here’s a fun-as-hell and energetic discussion on the upcoming WWE event ‘Roadblock‘, which airs on the WWE Network on Saturday the 12th. This is basically bigger than a Monday Night RAW, but less than a PPV, but so far there are four matches scheduled. There is Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose for the Championship Title, Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt, The New Day vs. The League of Nations, and an NXT match with The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder)  vs. Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady (with Carmella).

Hey guys, Jana here,

diffmain

The Dallas Film Society is, once again, preparing for the Dallas International Film Festival (DIFF) which will run from April 14-24. Since it’s inception in 2007, the festival has been a lynch-pin in the film-release cycle as it represents the world and U.S. debuts of dozens of pictures. Creators and acting talent mingle with distributors, deals are made and we see the results on our own screens, it’s a magical time in the life of a film.

John Williams

The DFS has announced their ten lead off selections that will set the tone for the festival this year along with a few special selections that are certain to give you the warm fuzzies in the form of a special Salute to the Music of John Williams with a special screening of ‘E.T. – The Extra Terrestrial‘ and a special concert at the Dallas City Performance Hall featuring The Dallas Winds. This is all in conjunction with Williams being selected as this year’s AFI Life Achievement Award honoree.

WWE Raw 2/22/16 Recap!!! HERE COMES THE MONEY!

by Angelic Heel on Feb 23rd, 2016

Angelic Heel Once more!

Shane

 

Ever have one of those moments where you know the world as you know it has changed forever? WWE‘s Monday Night RAW from Detroit, MI had just that moment! With Wrestlemania (which can be seen on the WWE Network) looming, the WWE Universe was faced with one of those moments. The night had its with the Beast Incarnate and Dean Ambrose meeting again, the Diva’s division heating up and the return many of us have been praying for, the return of SHANE MCMAHON! Did you miss Raw? (I’m so sorry for you if you did.) No worries, I got your back!

WWE: Why ‘Fastlane 2016’ Failed as a PPV!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 22nd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Screen Shot 2016-02-22 at 9.50.15 AM

As a whole term paper you’d turn in to your professor as the final minute strikes down, this PPV called ‘Fastlane’ would have received a failing grade in big red ink. That’s not to say that there were some impressive moments. There were for sure some great spots by a few people, but as a whole, the PPV and booking seemed rushed, lazy, and incoherent on a major level. This is unfortunate, because this is the PPV that basically will determine what happens at Wrestlemania 32 – the biggest WWE event of the year. You can also add that this is the first time a Wrestlemania will be in Dallas to the biggest crowd the WWE has ever seen, with it topping more than 100,000 fans. After last night, ‘Fastlane‘ has done nothing to secure a hyped or fun Wrestlemania 32 for Dallas and the WWE Universe. In fact, I’d go as far to say that the Vince McMahon has lowered expectations by a considerable amount.

Tom Nix, here…

Good day, wrestleheads! We are in the throes of Wrestlemania Season and the final “Special Event” stop on this runaway train is Sunday in the form of WWE’s new annual pay per view, Fastlane. We’re gonna run down (get it? run? because fast) the card and see how everything adds up. This PPV is going to get most if not all of the pieces in place for “The Biggest Wrestlemania Ever” in Dallas, TX on April 1st. Let’s get straight to the biscuits.

WWE’s Raw 2/15/16: Fast Track to Fastlane!

by Angelic Heel on Feb 16th, 2016

Angelic Heel Once Again!

dirty

With Fastlane (which can be seen on the WWE Network) looming on the horizon, Anaheim, CA was the scene of the last RAW before the WWE Universe finds out who will go on to face Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship. It was a night filled with wrecks and crashes, high flying action, an Intercontinental Title defense, and Titans coming together to take on a threat. Did you miss the action? No worries, I’ve got you covered with a recap of all the action.
