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

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.

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… Read more »

Peacock Announces Ric Flair Documentary ‘Woooooo! Becoming Ric Flair’ Drops Dec 26th

He is a pop icon, ‘The Nature Boy”, the 16-time World Champion, a 2-time WWE Hall of Famer, and one of the most prolific superstars in Pro Wrestling history.  And now, Peacock is set to drop the Ric Flair documentary, Woooooo! Becoming Rick Flair on December 26th.

Flair, who is now 73-years old, opens up about his storied career, behind the scenes and backstage moments, classic matches, and more for the last 50 years.

Many wrestling superstars past and present, along with pop culture celebrities appear in the special including: Hulk Hogan, Mike Tyson, Post Malone, Stephen A. Smith, and Ric’s daughter, WWE superstar, Charlotte Flair .

In a statement Ric Flair expressed: “Many stories have been told about The Nature Boy over the past 50 years. I’m thrilled to have partnered with WWE and Peacock to produce the most accurate depiction of my life to date and hope audiences enjoy the ride. Woooo!”

Rod Aissa, EVP Unscripted Content, NBCUniversal added: “Very few people have professional careers as storied as Ric Flair. We can’t wait to give Peacock audiences this revealing, in-depth and often raw look into the life of one of sports and wrestling’s most controversial icons.”

The project is a co-creation of WWE and sports reporter Tom Rinaldi, who narrates the documentary.

Previously, ESPN had produced a documentary on Flair for one of its 30 For 30 specials back in 2017.  However, in recent episodes of his podcast, To Be The Man, Flair shared that Peacock’s new look special on his life, would out perform the previous one on ESPN.

Ric revealed: “This will be better than my 30 for 30 on ESPN because I made them promise me that whatever I said they wouldn’t edit. I’m not going to do something that’s going to be edited again.  It’s been passionate and I expressed everything that I thought was good or bad in my life. I discussed my personal life, my personal problem, family problems, wrestling problems. Issues with people that I’ve had. I just answered questions and I answered them as truthfully as I could.  I had 12 hours with Tom Rinaldi. He asked my every good question in the world.”

You can check out the trailer for the documentary which debuted on Ric Flair’s Twitter account today below.

So, after you watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, check out Wooooo! Becoming Ric Flair starting December 26th, which is sure to have plenty of soapy drama within it.

NLet us know if you might check out Ric’s documentary via the comment section.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL Preview: The Walls Close In On Sheila! What Will Be Her Next Move?

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful, Finn (Tanner Novlan) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) get closer to the truth, that Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) is alive and well and has been hiding out with Deacon (Sean Kanan)!

The question is, just how much will they find out, and with Finn, Steffy and more on her trail, where will Sheila go to escape prison and her lies?

In the newly released promo for the action this week on the CBS daytime drama series, Finn informs a shocked Steffy that Sheila is alive.  Next, Steffy says, “She staged her own death”.

When Finn and Steffy confront Deacon if he knows Sheila’s whereabouts, he lies, covers and responds, “I have no idea where she is.”

Later, Deacon warns Sheila that her games are catching up with her, stating: “You hear that sound, that’s the walls closing in babe!”

What will the oh-so-clever Sheila do next to escape prison and being found?  Will she hightail it out of town? Don a new disguise? Try to plead her case to her son, Finn? Whatever the case, when it comes to Sheila Carter viewers know she has more than nine lives.

Watch the latest preview below.  Then let us know, do you hope Sheila is caught and put in prison for shooting Finn and Steffy and her crimes? Do you want her roaming free? If so, how could she have the relationship she wants with her son, Finn and grandson, Hayes? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.

MONDAY: Michael Graziadei Returns to The Young and the Restless

Fan favorite Michael Graziadei (Daniel Romalotti) returns on-air tomorrow on the Monday, November 21st episode of The Young and the Restless.

Previously, Michael played the role of Phyllis’ (Michelle Stafford) son from 2004-2013, and reprised the role again in 2016.

In previews of all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, Daniel runs into Lily (Christel Khalil), and the two, who share a past, reconnect as they were formerly involved as teenagers.

Now, with Lily having trouble in her relationship with Billy (who is vowing to be there for Chelsea while she recovers from her depression), the time could be right for Daniel to potentially rekindle a relationship with his ex!  Would Lily be all for it?

Meanwhile, what exactly brings Daniel back to Genoa City?  Is he there for a career change … or is something else going on with him?

In addition to Graziadei’s return, be on the lookout for Michael Damian to reprise his role of Daniel’s father, Danny Romalotti.

Check out the Y&R social video below heralding Michael’s return tomorrow where Daniel runs into Phyllis, plus a Y&R preview where he runs into Lily.
