It’s Friday, time to say something stupid, Paul.
WWE.com is hyping an exclusive interview with Brock Lesnar discussing his upcoming Beast vs. The Best matchup at SummerSlam. After the two amazing brawls on Raw and Brock’s classic, “say something stupid, Paul” line from Raw, the interview is a must see look at the money feud for SummerSlam.
Also on tap tonight?
- The odd men out of the World Heavyweight Championshp match at SummerSlam collide as Randy Orton takes on Rob. Van. Dam.
- Miz TV returns tonight, but before you reach for your remote, know that tonight’s guests are AJ Lee and Big E. Langston. You like AJ Lee right? A little birdie told me that another SummerSlam matchup may result from this segment, so don’t miss it.
- In a Raw re-match, Fandango looks to get his win back from the returning Kofi Kingston.
- After thwarting Mr. McMahon’s attempt to shave his beard on Monday, #1 Contender to the WWE Championship Daniel Bryan faces his would-be Demon Barber of Fleet Street, the freshly shaven Wade Barrett.
- In preparation for his Ring of Fire match, Kane faces 3MB in a handicap match.
- And inexplicably, just 9 days before they fight for the World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam, Christian takes on Alberto Del Rio in non-title action.
Admittedly, I’m not the biggest fan of the Miz, at least as a hero. He has such a punchable face that he works best as a heel. However, I am a fan of old school Star Wars. Add in my love of professional wrestling? Baby you got yourself a stew going! So imagine my excitement when the above picture hit the web last night.
Here’s the 411 (via Lords of Pain):
The Miz used a cup of beer and a Stormtrooper’s helmet in his Sydney Street Fight against Dean Ambrose at last night’s live event in Sydney, Australia. Ambrose ended up winning the match.
That sentence is full of win. A street fight where a Stormtrooper helmet is involved and Dean Ambrose was involved. I’m already wanting to see how he sold a blow from a Stormtrooper helmet. House shows are the best.
Let’s just hope the Miz doesn’t decide to keep that helmet and cover it in glitter.
We’re a different type of nerd here at CDW, we weren’t so much concerned with the Age of Ultron announcement as we were at what’s type of news WWE made at this year’s San Diego Comic Con International.
For those not in the know San Diego Comic Con International is the largest fan convention in the United States and has become a convention encompassing not just comic books and sci-fi but all pop culture, and WWE is no exception.
So here it is all in one place a roundup of all the sports entertainment news coming out of San Diego this weekend as well as some video recaps courtesy of WWE.

It’s Wednesday night and you know what that means — the latest installment of WWE Main Event! Tonight’s three-match card will go a long way in satisfying that hunger for WWE action until Smackdown.
1. The Miz vs. Cody Rhodes
The Miz gets a match against one of the best technicians in WWE in Cody Rhodes. Current Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett will be on commentary during this match, which will no doubt lead to a confrontation with The Miz, who challenges for Barrett’s title this Sunday at Payback. Cody Rhodes has been on a downturn lately, but picking up a victory over The Miz tonight could thrust him right back into the IC Title picture.
2. Damien Sandow vs. Sin Cara
WWE continues its efforts to build up Damien Sandow in order to make him look like a credible threat to score a pinfall on Sheamus this Sunday during the Payback Pre-show. Sin Cara delivered a highly-entertaining match against Antonio Cesaro this past Monday on Raw. Expect a similar result here: tons of action and great spots…but a loss for the young luchador.
3. The Usos vs. Tons of Funk
Jimmy and Jey Uso aim to keep rolling through the WWE’s tag team division by taking on Brodus Clay and Tensai aka Tons of Funk.

Quick and dirty one here, kids cuz it’s FRIDAY! SmackDown is in Long Island. GO!
Team Hell No and Randy Orton are your guests on Miz TV
My favorite act in WWE, Daniel Bryan in the same segment with my current least favorite, the Miz. Should be interesting. Miz will moderate what’s sure to be a civil discussion between three pals- Daniel Bryan, Kane, & Randy Orton. And if we’re good, maybe just maybe Teddy Long will book a main event during this segment. Holla Holla!
Y2J Chris Jericho preps for Payback by taking on the latest Paul Heyman Guy, Curtis Axel
The Code Breaker versus the Perfect Plex. The Walls of Jericho versus the Countout. Jericho is embroiled in a feud with Paul Heyman (on behalf of CM Punk) so naturally, Jericho takes on another Paul Heyman client tonight on SmackDown
Hit the jump for the rest of the show!
