A Look at the Women's Iron Survivor Challenge Match and the Participants
One of WWE's many modifications to their Premium Live Event calendar includes NXT's newest event, Deadline. The event will take place on Saturday, December 10, and will serve as the last overall PLE in the calendar year. In addition, it was announced by WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels that the event will feature the debut of the Iron Survivor Challenge, the latest in a long list of WWE's innovative gimmick matches. So how, exactly, does this match work? Here are the rules.
Simple Tasks (Week 14)
One thing I've learned in the many years that I've tracked the NFL's playoff races: it's always fun to control your own destiny. Nothing makes a team sleep better at night than the feeling that all they have to do to get in is, as the late, great Al Davis once said, "just win, baby." Football fans love that scenario, too, because just winning is easy. You don't want to have to rely on any outside help; even if it's only one team standing in the way. You also don't want to back in as well, because while you did get what you played for, someone else got it for you.
NFL Week 13 Recap: Ownership
It's December 2022. The Green Bay Packers are having a terrible season. The team's playoff chances are hanging by a thread. There is turmoil all over; from the front office to the team, to even the fanbase. It is not your typical season for the Green Bay Packers and the faithful fans, such as myself, and it leaves us wondering about the following year and beyond. Despite all of this, there's still one thing that remains very true:
Villainess Review: Brianna (It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Murder)
Weeks ago, I went on The Futon Critic (a site I've gone to for a long while regarding info on upcoming Lifetime movies), and saw this title for an upcoming film: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Murder. I had to do a double take. A Lifetime Christmas thriller film?! Those don't happen. Granted, Lifetime Movie Network does air the typical thrillers while the main network celebrates the holidays with sweet-natured films. But I think this is a first: a Christmas-centered LMN film that is also one of our deliciously wicked thrillers! An absolute miracle!
3 Things This Week's SmackDown Possibly Told Us Could Happen in Their Women's Division
This week's SmackDown completed the fallout from this year's Survivor Series event, which featured WarGames on the main stage for the first time in WWE history. Like every WWE fan, I was quite excited for the continuous fallout from the event, but being a hardcore women's wrestling fan, I couldn't help but be elated and curious over what I saw develop regarding the blue brand's female superstars. Keep in mind, what I'm about to state isn't definite--rather, it's a belief of what I think could occur as a result of what I and other WWE fans watched this week. That being said, here are three things that (IMO) could occur as a result of what we saw in the women's division.
Villainess Review: Linda Fusco (Monk)
One of the craziest developments and swerves in Monk's eight-year history occurred during the show's sixth season, but to properly tell this, I have to go back to Season Five. The episode, "Mr. Monk, Private Eye," centered on just that: Natalie had coerced Monk into going into the private eye business, despite Monk's aversions to the idea. Sure enough, the pair receive their first client, a realtor named Linda Fusco, who hired the pair to investigate a minor accident involving her car. Sure enough, the accident ends up evolving into a case regarding an unrelated murder, and Linda is along for the ride, which included her first meeting with Capt. Leland Stottlemeyer.
Amy Locane: Budding Actress Turned Vehicular Villainess
It's been a while since I wrote a piece like this, mainly because of the sports stories and my other weekly reviews, so I decided to break my hiatus with this story about actress Amy Locane. I actually remember when this broke, and back then, it was quite a fascinating story. I hadn't heard of Amy Locane at the time; all that was said was that she was known for recurring on the original Melrose Place. But as I said, the story is fascinating, and I became more fascinated with it when I re-read the whole thing recently.
NHL November 2022 Review
This November was quite amazing during the 2022-23 season. As I watched during the past 30 days, I was planning on what teams to feature in this review for the month of November, and the reason for that is simple. As I stated in my October review, the monthly review will contain a story from each of the NHL's four divisions: Atlantic, Metropolitan, Central, and Pacific, and each story centers on a team who I believe made the most noise from each of the divisions, either positively or negatively. The teams are as follows:
Now The Real Fun Begins (Week 13)
It's here! The NFL's home stretch of the regular season is finally here! The season will enter the month of December, which is the pivotal month of the season, as that's when the playoff spots can be punched in, while teams can be thinned out. 2022 marks the third year of the NFL's current playoff format, which allows seven playoff teams per conference, totalling 14 in all. It is also the second year of the NFL's current 17-game, 18-week season, and with 12 weeks in the books, that leaves the final one-third left to play out. For those who are still trying to get used to this current playoff format, here's how it goes.
Darkness at a College Campus
After another long day, Lydia Marner, a college professor of mythology, was driving home, and she had a lot on her mind. She had been at her current university for five years, and she was looking to get tenure, something she felt was inevitable in her case. There was also frustration regarding her students, as she felt that they weren't really getting into her lessons like she wanted, though once Lydia arrived home, her attention turned to a drone that was delivering a package right at her doorstep.
NFL Week 12 Recap: It's Not Easy Being Green (and Gold)
Week 12's Sunday Night Football showcase between the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles was one of the most entertaining games I had ever seen. Though the Packers got off to a bad start by falling down 13-0 quicker than a hiccup, the team bounced back and actually took the lead, on the road, against a team who lost only one game. Just before halftime, the game was tied at 20, but a late Eagles touchdown made it 27-20 after two quarters. Unfortunately, the Packers didn't get back in to the game, but they made it close at the tail end. The Eagles went on to win, 40-33, improving them to 10-1, while the Packers fell to 4-8 and are on life support.
