Brock Lesnar has been flagged by USADA for a doping violation related to a sample taken June 28, less than two weeks before the UFC and WWE star defeated Mark Hunt at UFC 200.
One of the scariest moments for a wrestler is the rare occasion when a fan decides to get involved. You never know what they’re going to do—just last month one woman pulled a gun on a heel at a small indy show in Georgia—and the wrestler’s response is universal: subdue them by any means necessary.
Chile obliterated Mexico in last night’s Copa América quarterfinal, running up a seven-spot and keeping El Tri scoreless. As is our custom, here are all those goals as called by wrestling legend Jim “J.R.” Ross.
Last September, 32 years after the bizarre 1983 death of his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka was charged with her murder. For decades Argentino’s death had been the subject of rumors about who knew what (especially Vince McMahon) and how Snuka avoided charges for so long.
WWE wrestler Ryback (real name Ryan Reeves) wrote a Tumblr post today where he disclosed that he’s asked to be left off of the company’s programming until he gets a new contract.

This was supposed to just be a goofy post about how The Rock showed up on Wrestlemania again with a silly prop (this time, a flamethrower) but then he did this:
“Attitude Era” WWE stars Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin returned to the ring tonight at Wrestlemania to defend New Day’s honor against the League of Nations, with the, uh, veteran wrestlers performing their famous finishing moves of Sweet Chin Music, the Mandible Claw (with Mr. Socko), and…

WWE up-and-comer Neville suffered what looks to be a knee or ankle injury during his bout against Chris Jericho last night on Raw.
