WWE FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN Season Premiere: Roman Reigns and Logan Paul Come Face-to-Face

Tonight on Fox (8 pm ET), WWE Friday Night SmackDown has its television ‘season premiere’ live from Worcester Massachusetts, one day ahead of the Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV) in Philadelphia.

Look for the highly-anticipated appearances of WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns and one of the biggest social media influencers in the world – now pro wrestler, Logan Paul on the premiere.. The two will come face-to-face to hype up next month’s headline match at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia.

Many have been trying to predict just how that match will finish. Former Women’s Champ, Rowdy Rhonda Rousey offered up her take on her You Tube channel sharing: “I guess they’ll have to protect both of them. So, it’s going to be like Roman cheats or something and still wins. Yeah, cause Logan Paul is still babyface. So, I don’t think they will let him cheat, but it could be a heel turn if he could cheat. But I think it would be more of like all The Bloodline’s gonna get involved and like gang up on him.”

Also tonight on Smackdown, Gunther goes up against Sheamus in a rematch from Clash at the Castle for the Intercontinental title, plus Ricochet battles the “Bloodline’s’ Solo Sikoa, and more.

On Thursday, Variety announced that the WWE has set new commentary teams for each of its television brands and those begin tonight with Smackdown.  WWE mainstay, Michael Cole is back, but this time with Wade Barrett, who is moving over from the “NXT” commentary team. Samantha Irvin will serve as the ring announcer, with Kayla Braxton and Megan Morant continuing on as backstage interviewers/correspondents.

News of the shakeups comes after “SmackDown” commentator Pat McAffee announced in early September that he would be taking a temporary leave from to work as an analyst on ESPN’s College Gameday.  McAffee is expected to return to his spot with WWE after the college football season concludes.

So, what do you think will eventually be the outcome of Reigns vs. Paul? The announce team changes? Comment below.  But first, check out several of the WWE superstars on the rosters pick for the winner of tonight’s match between Sheamus vs. Gunther

bye ! not a sports fan.. I come here for soaps.. I have removed my “favorites” link…

MF…Okay I can’t hold back anymore. After all the very gruesome violence that is now creeping, unwanted by many, into soaps, your page is now being PR for wrestling…”smack down” today? I know you are a businessman but I hope it stops.

Who cares? Why are we seeing this??!

Because Americans are obsessed with sports and with violence…so this is the perfect union. I say we should demand equal time and insist on Soap Updates on every ESPN show.

Understand you may be trying to broaden your website audience, but you’re attempting to mix two groups that just don’t go together.

This site owes it popularity to soap fans who appreciate the open forum to discuss “their stories”.

Wrestling is a polar opposite for the majority of soap viewers (and vice versa). It’s not a far stretch to say the majority of soap fans detest wrestling and most wrestling fans have a negative opinion of soaps (despite the late Bergen Williams excellent portrayal of GH’s Alice).

You run the risk of alienating both audiences. As a long visitor and marketing executive, I’d strongly suggest a separate site for wrestling followers.

Bravo, OG Steve!


I can’t even find a place to discuss a Soap or make a comment, and now we have another site about wrestling?

General Hospital

THIS WEEK ON GH: Austin’s Murder Begins to Reveal Its Suspects (Preview)

It’s been a minute since General Hospital left Dr. Austin Gatlin-Holt shot dead on the floor, which also signaled the exit of fan favorite, Roger Howarth. Now, in the latest promo for the ABC soap opera, it looks like the story will finally pick back up the week of November 27th.

Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is on the case and trying to go through the list of potential suspects who wanted Austin dead, and there are several. Look for Dante to confront Sonny (Maurice Benard) about Austin’s murder and in turn, Sonny to hightail it to Ava (Maura West) and ask her if she pulled the trigger. Meanwhile, Cyrus, Mason, Nikolas and others could have fired the shots.

Since Austin is related to the Quartermaines, will his death make an already potentially messy family Thanksgiving even worse? When we last left the Q’s, a smoke alarm went off as Gloria (Ellen Travolta) and Lois (Rena Sofer) were putting the finishing touches on the Turkey. But as we know, Gloria is seemingly tormented and keeping a secret about a mysterious caller.

THIS WEEK ON Y&R: Aunt Jordan Ramps Up Her ‘Attack of the Newmans’ (Preview)

Viewers of The Young and the Restless won’t have to wait much longer for the action to pick back up after the Thanksgiving holiday break, to find out just what Aunt Jordan (Colleen Zenk) and Claire’s (Hayley Erin) vendetta against the Newmans is all about.

As has been previewed for this week’s episodes of Y&R, the Newmans arrive in Oregon to Aunt Jordan’s house, as she informs them, they are each about to suffer a heart attack, thanks to the poison they drank in their water bottles – that would be Victor (Eric Braeden), Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle).

Meanwhile last week, viewers saw Cole (the returning J. Eddie Peck) entering the house calling out the names of Victoria and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott). Now. in the latest harrowing preview for the series via Y&R’s social media accounts, Aunt Jordan tells Victor it will be her pleasure to watch him die, when he asks, ‘Where is my wife?”

Then, in a scene, Jordan is going up the stairs, while Nick tries to catch-up with her. However, he is sliced in the stomach by a knife. Upstairs, poor Nikki is still trapped in the bedroom having been hooked up to an IV filled with booze, and then drinking the bottle that was left behind in Jordan and Claire’s efforts to have her fall off the wagon … which she has.

According to the official teasers for the story for the week of November 27th, look for the following key moments to go down.

Now, check out the harrowing teasers for the action on The Young and the Restless below.

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Eric Forrester to Throw Family Gala as He Gets Closer to His Imminent Demise

Viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful have been wondering if an eleventh hour reprieve will save the life of the patriarch of the Forrester fashion dynasty, Eric Forrester.

This has also raised concerns that Daytime Emmy winner, John McCook (Eric), might be exiting the show as one of the only two original cast members – the other being Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke).

Now, McCook took to his Instagram to share an article that appears in the latest edition of TV Guide Magazine, which previews that Eric is going to throw a party for his family with the intent of saying goodbye to them, since he believes most of them are not aware that he is dying. Problem is, many of the family do know and are gut-punched, but haven’t let on to Eric that they know.

As previously announced, Winsor Harmon is set to return to B&B on December 5th to reprise his role as Thorne Forrester with Ashley Jones to follow on December 6th reprising her role as Dr. Bridget Forrester. Thorne and Bridget return to Los Angeles in anticipation of the family gala, not knowing what it’s truly all about.  No airdate was given in the article, as to when the party episodes begin.

McCook shared to TV Guide,“There’s something wonderful about having these relationships that we have as actors on the show. It’s very special for us to all be in the room together.”

Back on October 30th, The Bold and the Beautiful’s supervising producer, Casey Kasprzyk, posted on X ,”Filming 10 shows this week, and let’s just say it’s going to be very emotional for everyone.” This was attached to a photo of Eric Forrester’s portrait over the Forrester mansion mantel. Could it be that these upcoming party episodes were what Casey was referring to?

One key point thus far, is that while the doctor has told Eric (and secretly Brooke and Ridge) that he only has a few months left to live, there has been no definitive diagnosis that has been given for what ails Eric to the audience. We know he is coughing up blood and having tremors.  The doctor had revealed to Eric and Donna that Eric was having TIA’s (transient ischemic attack, AKA mini-strokes) but it was part of a bigger picture that he was trying to get to the bottom of.

So, with all that said, and with this heartbreaking ‘goodbye’ party that Eric is going to throw, do you really think he is going to die, or will a cure be found …. or misdiagnosis be revealed? Comment below.
