The Beast To Return To The Octagon This Summer

Brock-Lesnar

(PCM) News broke over the weekend during UFC 199 in California, that WWE has granted Brock Lesnar what is being called a “ one off deal that allows Lesnar to return to the octagon to fight. The fight will occur at UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas. Lesnar’s opponent has been revealed to be Mark Hunt, a 42 year-old fighter with a 12-10 record.

Having Lesnar on the card will undoubtedly make UFC a lot of money. Brock is one of the top draws in WWE and makes a lot of money for and off the company. Although, he wrestles for WWE on a part time basis (one of the only superstars besides the Undertaker that has such a schedule) Lesnar draws a large numbers of fans to the events he appears at, and has brought a large number of subscribers to WWE’S online Network. Lesnar has always been vocal about wanting to return to the octagon even though he signed an exclusive deal with WWE last year.

The question everyone is asking is what does WWE get out of this deal? Fans have been speculating that the Lesnar appearance will allow WWE to use Rhonda Rousey in some sort of way in future WWE programming.

MMA Fighter Kimbo Slice Dead At Age 42

Kimbo-Slice

(PCM) The news has been confirmed that MMA fighter and pop culture figure Kimbo Slice has sadly passed away at the age of 42. A tweet was posted by American Top Team, a facility in Coconut Creek, Florida where Kimbo Slice trained which read “The ATT Family and South Florida Community lost a legend today. RIP KIMBO”.

The news immediately began to spread through various media outlets and fans began expressing their condolences. Kimbo’s immediate cause of death has not yet been revealed, however there is some speculation that steroid usage may have been involved.  He was taken from his home in Coral Gables, FL to a hospital in Ft. Lauderdale, however there was no emergency calls made from the residence.  Authorities at this time do not suspect any foul play and do not plan any investigation into his death, as they are treating it as a medical incident.

Kimbo Slice rose to fame and became a household name in the early 2000’s due to his video series the featured unsanctioned street fights and backyard brawls. Slice, whose real name Kevin Ferguson,  was born in Nassau, Bahamas, and attended the University of Miami and Bethune-Cook University. He compiled a 5-2-1 career MMA record between the UFC and Bellator and was 7-0 with six knockouts in seven professional boxing fights.

Our sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of Kimbo Slice during this incredibly difficult time.

The Return Of CenaNation And A Move For Smackdown

John-Cena1

(PCM) John Cena will return to action tomorrow night during the live Memorial Day edition of Monday Night Raw on the USA Network. Cena who has been sidelined with an injury was told by doctors he would be out for nine months, but is returning after only five months. How will Cena fit in with all the new talent WWE has been pushing lately. What will his return mean for the WWE Universe?

In other WWE news, it was announced earlier this week that Smackdown will be moving to Tuesday nights, live on the USA Network. There has been talk of having a brand split that was first done back around 2002 when there was influx of wrestlers from WCW. The idea is to have two World Champions. One Woman’s Championship. And the US and IC title defended on both shows.

Vince McMahon has been described as having many good ideas in that crazy brain of his. We shall see how all this plays out as the ratings have been in the decline in the past several weeks. I think this is a good move on WWE’s part due to all the wrestlers from NXT appearing. Should give more talent a chance. Having two World Champions will kind of be different, but it’s nothing we haven’t seen before.

Another Superstar Requests Their Release From WWE

Cody-Rhodes1

(PCM) Like a revolving door another wrestler has requested their release from World Wrestling Entertainment. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to the many fans who have followed Cody Rhodes throughout his ten-year career with the company. Rhodes always delivered whatever gimmicky character the company threw his way, but the company never seemed to be behind him.

Cody Rhodes is the son of the great American Dream Dusty Rhodes, and the brother of WWE veteran GoldDust. Rhodes has been through a lot in the last year. He recently lost his father in June. He has been trying to push creative to drop all the gimmicky characters like the Stardust character he has been portraying and let him be just himself, but the powers at be would not allow that to happen.

On May 21st Cody Rhodes asked for his release from the company. WWE granted his release the following day, and wished him well in all his future endeavors. Fans have come to know those words “future endeavors” well after reading about all the recent releases WWE has gone through in the last few weeks. There seems to be a lot of disconnect and unhappiness backstage in WWE these days. But it is sad that the Rhodes family has worked for the WWE for a very longtime, and they couldn’t give someone like Cody Rhodes who has put over many a talent over the years, a chance to show what his true character by being himself.

Rhodes wrote a very interesting statement about his release, and it pretty much sums up all his feelings toward the company. You can see his statement below:

University Of Washington Comes Under Fire For Controversial Cheerleader Tryouts Flyer

(PCM) The University of Washington is receiving a ton of backlash after they posted quite the controversial cheerleader tryouts flyer on their Facebook page. Many are finding the flyer, which has since been removed to be quite offensive and non-inclusive to people various ethnicity.

The flyer features a scantily clad thin, blonde, white woman accompanied by a list of do’s and don’ts for having a successful cheerleader and dance team tryout. Some of those do’s and don’t include make-up tips such as “Do have a bronze, beachy glow” and “Do wear false eye lashes” and “Don’t have nude lips” or “Don’t have dark smokey eyes”.  They also feature hair tips such as “Do wear your hair straight or curled” and “Don’t have a ponytail or trendy colors”!

Washington-cheerleader

The director of programming for the UW student government, Jazmine Perez,  is dumbfounded by the flyers saying “I can’t believe this is real. One of the first things that comes mind is objectification and idealization of Western beauty, which are values I would like to believe the University doesn’t want to perpetuate. As a student of color who looks nothing like the student in the poster, this feels very exclusive.”

Many feel that students who participate in other sports team do not have to adhere to the same physical/appearance standards. Once the internet began to fire up about the post it was immediately taken down and university officials commented  “that some of the details and descriptions provided were inconsistent with the values of the UW spirit program and department of athletics.”
