WWE Superstar John Cena Appearing At Wizard World Philadelphia - #MMBComic


Really, now. Who ever saw John Cena coming? When he debuted on SmackDown in June 2002, he was just a beefy guy in purple trunks. Within a year of his introduction, he transformed into the battle-rapping, chain-wielding “Doctor of Thuganomics.” Now, he’s the biggest star in WWE — but he’s also the most polarizing.

WWE's The Animal Batista Is Coming To Wizard World Philly - #MMBComic

Taming wild animals is best left to trained professionals. Taming “The Animal” is another matter entirely.
If Batista always appeared in control of his meteoric rise through the ranks of WWE, that’s because you’re not counting his tempestuous formative years. That what would ultimately bring the six-foot-six, 290-pound brute to the top was his ability to avoid the perils and violence all around him in his troubled youth.

2014 NFL Schedule: League Releases Official Regular-Season Slate - #MMBSports

After opening 2014 with a bang in Super Bowl XLVIII, the reigning NFL champion Seattle Seahawks will celebrate their triumph by kicking off the 2014 regular season inside a raucous CenturyLink Field on Sept. 4 against the Green Bay Packers.

'How I Met Your Mother' spin-off casts Meg Ryan For Voice Over


The mother has a voice: Meg Ryan has been cast as the narrator for CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" spin-off.

The actress has landed the unseen vocal role in the "How I Met Your Dad" pilot, which is considered an obvious front-runner for a series order for CBS' schedule next season. She'll supply the voice of "future Sally" (played during the series in flashback by Greta Gerwig), the same way Bob Saget supplied the voice for future Ted in "HIMYM." Like Saget, her character will never be seen.

Ryan is one of the original modern-day rom-com movie stars, having launched her carrier in 1989 with the hit "When Harry Met Sally." She's since appeared in "Sleepless in Seattle," "In the Cut," and had a recurring role on Showtime's "Web Therapy." "How I Met Your Dad" is her first major prime-time TV series regular role. CBS and studio 20th Century Fox TV had no comment.

Seahawks Russell Wilson, wife file for divorce after two years of marriage - #MMBSports


Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Ashton have filed for divorce. The two were married in January 2012.
The Seahawks released a statement from Wilson on the issue: “I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. Clearly, decisions like these don’t come easy. Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers, understanding and privacy during this difficult time. Moving forward, I will have no further comment on this personal matter.”
Wilson and the former Ashton Meem were married in Richmond, Virginia in January 2012, just a few months before Wilson was selected by the Seahawks in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Trailer For Former 76ers' Star Allen Iverson Documentary Hits Web [Video] - #MMBSports


Allen Iverson documentary, fittingly called "Iverson," will debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday night. The trailer for the film was just released featuring interviews from Dwyane Wade, Tom Brokaw and Larry Brown who says, "As a coach, dealing with him on a daily basis, nobody trains you for that." Of course, Iverson himself gets a platform to speak as well. The doc is from first time director Zatella Beatty.

The documentary looks at Iverson's high school years (already the source for ESPN's "No Crossover") to his playing time and beyond.

Nintendo Game Boy Turns 25

The Nintendo Game Boy is now a man.
The ground-breaking handheld games machine was released 25 years ago today in Japan on April 21, 1989.
While it didn't make its way officially to the UK until 1990, it almost immediately changed the way we looked at video games - and portable gadgets. Yes, it played a mean version of Tetris. But it's almost fair to say it also paved the way for handheld gadgets like the iPod and the iPhone - both of which arguably pay a passing resemblance to Nintendo's grey brick of joy.
And of course, the Game Boy had a long life itself.
It was an immediate success on its launch, and went on to sell 118.69 million units (along with its successor, the Game Boy Colour). It was also redesigned in 1996 and 1998 as the Game Boy Pocket and Game Boy Light (in Japan).
Needless to say, the later Nintendo DS and 3DS also have more than a little to do with the original Game Boy's success.

"I would love to be a Bond villain. I am a huge fan of Daniel Craig and the Bond movies but it seems only right to follow in my grandfather's footsteps as a Bond baddie."

Updates To NXT Roster

NXT Tag Team Champions The Ascension are likely to debut on WWE TV in the next few months.

With many talents being promoted to the main roster, look for Shaun Ricker (Slate Randall) to get a push on NXT TV soon. NXT Champion Adrian Neville will stay on NXT through the end of the summer at the very least.

With Paige winning the WWE Divas Title, the NXT Women's Title will likely be vacated with Charlotte or Sasha Banks as champion, being chased by Bayley.

Ultimate Warrior's Wife Dana Warrior Thanks WWE & Fans In A Letter

WWE's website posted the following letter from The Ultimate Warrior's wife:

Dearest Warriors,

It is with an absolutely broken heart I reach out to you. Since the passing of my husband, I have been fortunate enough to insulate my sweet girls and myself from the outside world. In this bubble we have grieved and continue to do so. For a week, I did not allow any television or media to seep through our cocoon. I was told, though, of the outpouring of love for my beloved husband and support for, as he always called us, his Warrior Girls. I can only say thank you.
