Lila Holland

The UPN network is coming under fire after airing an episode of WWE SmackDown! that depicted what was apparently a terrorist-themed wrestling battle. The sketch aired last Thursday, July 7--the same day as the tragic and fatal attacks on London's public transportation system. The SmackDown! episode in question featured ...

Former WWE champion passes away on the day of a championship match.

WWE Superstar Eddie Guerrero found dead

WWE Superstar Eduardo Gory Guerrero, better known in the wrestling world simply as Eddie, was found dead Sunday morning in his hotel room in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Guerrero, a former WWE champion and a regular mainstay on UPN's Friday Night SmackDown!, was in town to compete in a championship match for a taped WWE Supershow, slated to air on television later this week. He was 38.

After failing to respond to a 7 a.m. wake-up call, hotel security at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center accompanied Eddie's nephew and fellow WWE performer Chavo Guerrero Jr. in trying to establish contact with Eddie. Following a series of unsuccessful phone calls and knocks on his hotel room door, they finally forced their way into the room, only to find Eddie's body lying on the floor.

Upon initial investigation, police stated that there were no apparent signs of foul play and ...

The schedule of the new network slowly takes shape. Will your favorite show make the grade?

News of The CW

When the UPN and The WB announced they were merging to become a single network, called The CW, there were questions about what would happen to many of their respective shows. Will low-rated but much-loved shows be swiftly killed off? As diehard fans know, it's difficult enough to get one network to listen to reason, let alone two.

According to a January 26 report on zap2it.com, fans of Tyra Banks and her cadre of pouty young wannabes can relax: America's Next Top Model will continue strutting its stuff on the new network. The show has been enjoying its highest ratings this season, and it had already been green-lighted for another two cycles by UPN before the merger was announced. Also probable survivors: Smallville, Everybody Hates Chris, and Gilmore Girls.

In a January 27 press release, the network intimated that WWE Smackdown will also be making the jump ...

The Rock is game for Spy franchise

When Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run ships to video stores in September, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will become the first Hollywood action star to step into the role of an original character for the video game and its big-screen adaptation.

Johnson stars as US superspy Alex Decker, providing his voice, likeness, and motion-captured performance for the Midway Games release. Later this year, the former wrestler is signed on to bring Decker to the big screen in John Woo's big-budget Universal Pictures summer tentpole release for July 2007.

"Dwayne brings a physical aspect to the character, and that led us to developing Alex Decker as a physical American James Bond character," Midway Games chief marketing officer Steve Allison said. "We incorporated his ass-kicking brutality and sense of humor into this character."

Johnson said the Decker character never loses his sense ...

Funny WWE Show by Young Fans in Public
Usually I don’t follow backstage stuff of a particular show or movie with much excitement. But this is something which has a lot of passion in it. It is a video by some super passionate young guys about WWE, performing the epic moves in Public. The video is presented in a funny practical joke way but the guys in it deserves appreciation.
