WrestleCon 2019 Recap

WrestleCon just finished last weekend and it is the event that brings wrestling fans around the world in one large venue during WrestleMania week. Here, you are given the opportunity to meet your favorite professional wrestlers such as Rob Van Dam, Kevin Nash, Billy Gunn, Scott Hall, Arn Anderson, Rick Flair, Lita, Trish Stratus, Booker T, and much more. There are over two hundred different wrestlers that shows up every day and there are also live shows and even Q and A’s with select talent. There was event an event tied to this with Joey Ryan that could only be attended if you are only 18 years old but I will leave it at that. If you are a wrestling fan, this is a must go when WrestleMania weekend is in your town.

This event took place at the Hilton Hotel on 6th avenue in New York City and I have to say that it was very much organized with a lot of space used compared to previous years and I had no problem going back and forth to different vendors and tables as it did not feel very crowded or boxed in compared to other shows in the convention scene. On this particular week, I was the official Correspondent of the show working for Five.TV to conduct interviews and here are the ones that has happened during the show.

My first interview of the day is with the “Interview Queen” Alicia Atout We talk about how she became the Interview Queen and what did it take for it to happen. We also talked about comic books, her earliest memories as a wrestling fan, Her favorite music, and her website. From what I have been told by other people, she has never been interviewed before and it was a shock to see her interviewed. You can check her content right here https://amusicblogyea.com/about-the-writers/

Up next, is UFC and MMA Dan “The Beast” Severn. I have been a fan of mixed martial arts since I was a pre-teen and it still amazes me to this day. I was first exposed to him in the WWE in 1998 but then my friends in the classroom told me that he was in UFC and then I was borrowed a cassette VHS tape of one of his fights and I became a bigger fan of his ever since. We talk about his championships that he has won in his career, Jim Cornette, the Brawl For All, Connor McGregor, If he keeps up with the current product of both MMA and WWE, and much more.

Scott Steiner is a funny guy and I have been a fan of him since WCW. He is not known as the “Big Bad Booty Daddy” for no reason as we talked about his time when he was an amateur wrestler when he was younger and the accomplishments he has made, his time as the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, and the infamous “math” promo he cut in TNA Wrestling his reaction to WWE Superstar Big E doing his version of the math promo. We joked around also for a little bit after the interview and he is a guy that you would want to meet if you see him.

I next interviewed former WWE Superstar Celeste Bonin (Kaitlyn) at the show and she is awesome! Even Vickie Guerrero made a cameo as well. Celeste talked about his time with WWE, her clothing line Celestial Bodiez, her time in NXT, a mention of Triple H and AJ Lee, and her workout routine. It was a fun interview. You can check out her clothing line right here: https://www.celestialbodiez.com/pages/celesteboninceo

Brian Zane of Wrestling With Wregret to me is the “Angry Videogame Nerd” version of professional wrestling. His topics and discussions on his videos are always a must watch and I have been watching his channel since the start way back in 2013. I finally got the chance to interview him as we talked about the origin and beginning of his channel, what did he look forward to at WrestleMania, who would he like to collaborate with, his favorite episode on his channel, a story about how the Herb Abram’s UWF episode was made, and much more. He was at the show for three days so I can image how he and the others are very drained since these shows will have your energy for most of the time. You can subscribe to Wrestling With Wregret right here as he post many great produced videos every week. In fact, my favorite episode of his is also the UWF episode!

My final interview is the biggest I have done so far this year and it is with Rob Van Dam. Rob Van Dam has been highly successful in everywhere he has been whether if it was in ECW, WWE, or Impact Wrestling (in which he has just returned last week), he is a name that everyone will never forget in years to come. His flashy and high impact style makes him stand out during the 1990’s and the 2000’s and to this very day. We talked about his return to Impact Wrestling, his new documentary and how it started as a comedy tour documentary that organically transformed into the major topic of CTE, A story about Vince McMahon, his research on CTE, and his favorite moments in the ring and how he got the call to return to Impact Wrestling. Even his girlfriend Katie Forbes made a cameo too and she also made her Impact Wrestling Debut at the United We Stand show.

The Walking Dead News: Third Series to Premiere in 2020

Matt Negrete, a veteran writer on the flagship, will serve as showrunner on the 10-episode series he co-created alongside franchise chief content officer Scott M. Gimple.

On Monday, AMC formally announced that it has picked up what is now the third series in the zombie drama’s larger world with a 10-episode order for an untitled drama co-created by Gimple and longtime flagship writer Matt Negrete. The latter, who has been a writer and producer on The Walking Dead for the past five seasons, will serve as showrunner. Coincidentally, Negrete and Gimple collaborated on the season nine episode (“What Comes After”) that served as the last one for series star Andrew Lincoln, who will reprise his role as embattled former sheriff Rick Grimes in three movies. It’s unclear if the new spinoff will be connected to those movies. It’s unclear if any characters from either The Walking Dead or spinoff Fear the Walking Dead will have a role in the third series. Stars and fan favorites Norman Reedus (Daryl) and Melissa McBride (Carol) have “franchise deals” that allow them to move freely between all corners of the universe, for example.

“I’m beyond excited to be a part of this new show set in The Walking Dead universe,” Negrete said. “Writing and producing for the original series has been the job of a lifetime and I’m honored to be working with Scott and all the fine Dead folks at AMC in this new capacity. I can’t wait for the fans of the franchise to see what we’ve been cooking up!”

Few details were immediately available about the third series other than that it will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as viewers know it. Production will begin in the summer in Virginia for a 2020 premiere on AMC. The Lord of the Flies-like series will feature a new corner of the world. Here’s AMC’s formal description: “Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.” The order arrives as the original series introduced (and, spoiler alert, killed off) several younger characters in season nine.

“Showing audiences an unseen pocket of The Walking Dead universe steeped in a new mythology is a very cool way to celebrate a Decade of the Dead on TV and over 15 years of [creator] Robert Kirkman’s brilliant comic,” Gimple said. “Matt Negrete is one of the best writer-producers in TWD’s long history — I’m thrilled to be working beside him to tell stories unlike we’ve seen before, taking our first step into an even larger world.”

The untitled Negrete series is the first new series to stem from Gimple’s March 2018 promotion to chief content officer, a role he was given after Kirkman moved his overall deal from AMC to Amazon. Gimple and Kang wrote Lincoln out of the flagship drama so the actor could spend more time with his family at home in England. Gimple will re-team with Lincoln for three TV movies that will air on AMC and could potentially serve as back-door pilots for other series. Production on those is set to begin in 2019 though its unclear just where they will be filmed. TWD is filmed in Atlanta, while spinoff Fear the Walking Dead has used locations in L.A., Canada, Baja and Texas. Overall, there are now three scripted series and planned three stand-alone movies in the world of TWD as franchises increasingly become valuable to broadcast, cable and streaming platforms alike.

“We’re thrilled that the Dead will keep walking into a new corner of the post-apocalyptic world, a corner that will present stories and characters unlike any that The Walking Dead has dramatized thus far, and that is bound to excite one of the most passionate fanbases in television,” said David Madden, president of programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios. “Scott has been an invaluable leader for the universe since taking on the role of chief content officer, with a distinct and innovative vision for the franchise. Likewise, we’re excited to have Matt, who has been a crucial part of The Walking Dead family for over five years and penned many memorable episodes of TWD, at the helm of this original series.”

C2E2 2019 Recap

Chicago is always a great place to visit every year no matter if it is windy or not. The weather will go right out the way once you make your way to the Mccormick Convention Center for C2E2. C2E2 is the biggest comic and entertainment convention in Chicago and it will keep on getting bigger for the years to come. In fact, this year is their 10th year anniversary and it was clearly celebrated during the three day show whether if it was a panel, or fan meetup, screening, cosplay, and gaming, you name it. I have seen it all over my three days over there and here is my recap of this year’s edition of C2E2.

First, I would like to thank ReedPop for approving myself and Fidelina Roman with a media badge as we alway love to cover your shows. This year, the show felt more bigger than last year’s there were much more space dedicated to gaming as well this year and I believe that happened due to the fan feedback from last year’s show. There were gaming tournaments that took place over there as well. At the booths where comic books were being sold, there were many people looking for vintage comics (especially the Marvel line based on the people that I have spoken to since Avengers: End Game is coming next month). Also to add, I heard that someone was stealing comics from different vendors over there and I did not know it was true until it was reported on the news that it actually did happen (https://patch.com/illinois/chicago/indiana-man-accused-stealing-rare-comic-books-c2e2). Friday and Sunday the crowd was decent in many areas. Saturday however, was the most crowded. I am used to this type of crowd now since I have covered different shows for the last seven years so it did not bother me. There was also a blood drive that took place during the convention too that took place right by the entrance. The big panels took place at the main panel hall at room S406 and it filled up each time with the big name panels but I will get to that in a few paragraphs. Overall, between navigating each area from the panel rooms to the show floor, it was easier this year than any other year.

There were many panels that took place during C2E2 and there was also my panel. For the first time ever, I host a panel and it was Wrestling Soup featuring Anthony Missionary Thomas, Jon Draper, and myself as we took the stage on Friday to give our predictions of WrestleMania. We also talked about Captain Marvel, Avengers End Game, and The Punisher. We even gave away prizes to members of the crowd and it was a very fun experience to see about 100 people showing up to see us. It felt very satisfying that it happened and I would do it again.



All Elite Wrestling members The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega also took the stage that morning to talk about AEW and many questions directed towards them that many fans wanted to know were addressed. They addressed the fact that there will be no contract tampering with current WWE Superstars, but they did say that they have a wishlist of who they wanted to be signed with AEW. They also said that All In 2 will take place this year in Chicago in the same arena it took place last year. They also talked about how Brandi Rhodes came up with the idea to tackle sensory issues that is often never taken care of on WWE programming and Kenny Omega answered a fan question about an AEW comic book and video game. There were more questions that were answered and they made it clear that CM Punk will not wrestle at AEW. Great panel from the three of them and you can check it out right here.

Another great panel featured the writers and artists of DC Comics that featured Cecil Castellucci, Marv Wolfman, Robert Venditti, and Tim Seely as this panel was titled “Super Heroes of DC”. This panel featured a discussion with the four about the DC Comic stories that impacted the industry from their time, to the current. The panel was interesting to get an insight of what they were thinking at the time and how those stories shaped for the present day in the comic book world.

One of the biggest panels at the show was the Clueless reunion panel that featured Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Breckin Meyer, and Donald Faison as they took the stage to tell funny stories of their time on the movie and what did they do on their break time away from filming the movie. Breckin Meyer was also very funny during this panel and I loved it. Paul Rudd was also flooded with Avengers: End Game questions since he will appear in the movie as Ant Man once again and I knew from the start that many Marvel related questions would go his way and he even told a heart warming story about Stan Lee. This panel is a must watch.

My press coverage over there was great and it begins with Into The Badlands. I was also supposed to attend the screening of the newest episode, but I had time constraints. So a key takeaway here is that the creators already had an arc for the 16 episode season that would end with a conclusion that would, by their words, “reboot” the series and “take it in a different direction”. They go on to say, however, that they saw the writing on the wall about cancellation as they were writing the back half of the season and realized that they’re most likely working towards a conclusion instead of a continuation. They assured people that all major questions and plot/character arcs will be resolved, but left some doors open, which I assume is for the possibility to continue the story should they get picked up by another platform. If you want to watch the response yourself it is at the 10:48 time-stamp. Daniel Wu is very passionate of the series so I could not blame him of his frustration since I am also a fan of the show.

The cast and the executive producer of NBC’s The Blacklist were also in attendance at C2E2 as they spoken to the press at the roundtable interviews.I can also say that I stumped Jon during the interviews three times but he was great to speak to. I see how popular the show has gotten over the years and they appreciate the fan feedback from across the world. The talkers of the press roundtables are Jon Bokenkamp, Harry Lennix, Amir Arison, Hisham Tawfiq, and Clark Middleton.

I also interviewed legendary wrestling manager Jim Cornette as we talked about Mid South, World Class Championship Wrestling, his trouble getting to the arena at Keystone Comic Con compared to C2E2, and much more in this quick, fun, and entertaining quick interview.

The cosplay at C2E2 was great and this year’s big influence is Captain Marvel since the movie was released a few weeks before the show. I have seen really good ones raging from different genres and fandoms of Mortal Kombat, Overwatch, Star Wars, DC, Marvel, Super Mario, and much more. I even made a best of cosplay video for you to see along with some the photos below.

C2E2 was great this year as usual and I would cover it again next year! I do know that it will be in February next year so it will be a challenge. I would recommend the show for anyone in the Chicago area. Now here are my final pictures as I fanboy with CM Punk, Kenny Omega, Eric Bischoff, and Amir Arison.

C2E2 2019-AMC Network’s Into The Badlands Press Conference

The final season of AMC Network’s hit show Into The Badlands is coming to a close soon, but at C2E2, Daniel Wu, Alfred Gough, and Miles Millar were here to talk about the final season to the press at C2E2. Daniel Wu was very passionate about the show as he was disappointed of the way the bigger award shows were not giving the show the respect that is due.

The three of them also discussed their favorite moments of the show, the development of key moments of the show that included the big battles, How hard was it to produce the rainfall fight scene on season 1, stories of when they have decided to film in Ireland instead of New Orleans, and how diversity is important to the show.

If you were not a fan of the show before, you will be now by watching this exclusive press conference at C2E2.

Into The Badlands airs every Sunday on AMC.

Hideo Kojima And Norman Reedus To Appear At The Tribeca Film Festival

Game designer Hideo Kojima is talking about his latest project, the action title “Death Stranding,” at the Tribeca Film Festival next month, the event’s organizers announced on Tuesday.

Kojima is joined by “The Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus, who appears in the game. The pair will discuss pushing the boundaries of the video game medium and how their relationship has evolved while working on the project together. The Game Awards executive producer Geoff Keighley is moderating the talk. It takes place on Thursday, Apr. 25 at 6 p.m. ET at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center.

Kojima Productions revealed “Death Stranding” during E3 2016. While the studio hasn’t released many details about the game, we do know it features a cast of high-profile actors. Besides Reedus, Lindsay Wagner (“The Bionic Woman”), Mads Mikkelsen (“Rogue One,” “Polar”), and Léa Seydoux (“Isle of Dogs,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel”) are appearing as characters. Director Guillermo del Toro and prolific voice actor Troy Baker have roles as well.

Kojima’s love of film is well-known, and he told Variety in a June interview he tends to watch one or more movies a day. With “Death Stranding,” he said he wants to balance authorship with entertainment. “Sometimes I see very artistic movies, independent films, but I do want to a go to a midpoint so that people who enjoy indie films and Marvel films can both enjoy this game,” he said.

The Tribeca Film Festival takes place Apr. 24-May 5 and includes the world premieres of films by actors Jared Leto, Christoph Waltz, and Margot Robbie. It also features documentaries from Antoine Fuqua, Werner Herzog, and Abel Ferrara.

Who Will Be The Pike Victims on This Sunday’s Episode Of The Walking Dead?

This Sunday’s episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead will feature the beginning of the fair that has been building up since the second half of the ninth season. The purpose of this fair is to reunite all of the communities together as one for the first time in years. Ezekiel and Carol are the ones that came up with the idea and they even scavenged for a projector bulb in one of the previous episodes in order for them to play movies. With all of the communities (including The Oceanside members that has not been seen since Rick’s final episode) are here at the same time, I wonder how many of them will know about The Whisperers once they arrive. While the fair is going on, something very bad happens and each community will be affected. It is now time for me to discuss about the pikes.

I do not know how this will play on the episode until I watch it, but here is how it happened on the comic series. On issue #143, Alpha walks Rick to the top of an abandoned building. Once they are up there, she shows him the very large mega herd of walkers and she threatened Rick to never cross her again or else his community will be destroyed (Beta eventually releases that herd at the end of The Whisperer War). After that, Alpha tells Rick and the rest of the group that they can have Lydia and that she marked her border. When Rick and the rest walked back, they stop at the field to not only see her border, but to also see that there are pikes with heads on it. We find out right there that twelve characters were killed and the biggest deaths of the 12 is Rosita, who was pregnant at the time, and Ezekiel.

The way it was shown was that on the top of the page, it showed who was the victim and on the bottom of the same page, it showed which character was looking for the character that was killed. This also makes us realize that while Alpha was disguised as a resident in issue #142, she also lured away the victims and killed them and put their heads on pikes. This was something I was not expecting at all when I read this issue four years ago and it reminded me of Game of Thrones.

Who do I think will be the victims on this sunday’s episode? Well, we can already rule out Daryl, Michonne, and Carol since they are being held captive by The Whisperers and Beta mentions that there needs to not be anymore killing which is alluding to the fact that it has already happened. In fact, we do not know for sure if the number of the victims will be the same as the comic, but the big ones, I will predict it will be Tara, Jerry, Rosita, Gabriel, and Alden with Aaron being a wild card guess. But like the rest of us, We will have to wait until this Sunday.

Ava DuVernay’s WHEN THEY SEE US to be released on Netflix on May 31

In 1989, the Media Dubbed Them the Central Park Five and They Were Forever Linked Together By That Moniker

On May 31, their true story will come to Netflix as a four-part limited series from Academy Award® Nominee and two-time Emmy Award® Winner Ava DuVernay. Now titled When They See Us, the series is based on the stories of the five men who were wrongly accused of a crime they did not commit.

Quote from Ava DuVernay: “In 1989, five black and brown teen boys were wrongly accused of a crime they did not commit and branded The Central Park Five, a moniker that has followed them since that time. In 2019, our series gives the five men a platform to finally raise their voices and tell their full stories. In doing so, Korey, Antron, Raymond, Kevin and Yusef also tell the story of many young people of color unjustly ensnared in the criminal justice system. We wanted to reflect this perspective in our title, embracing the humanity of the men and not their politicized moniker.”

About When They See Us:

Based on a true story that gripped the country, When They See Us will chronicle the notorious case of five teenagers of color, labeled the Central Park Five, who were convicted of a rape they did not commit. The four part limited series will focus on the five teenagers from Harlem — Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise. Beginning in the spring of 1989, when the teenagers were first questioned about the incident, the series will span 25 years, highlighting their exoneration in 2002 and the settlement reached with the city of New York in 2014.

When They See Us was created by Ava DuVernay, who also co-wrote and directed the four parts. Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King from Participant Media, Oprah Winfrey from Harpo Films, and Jane Rosenthal, Berry Welsh and Robert De Niro from Tribeca Productions will executive produce the limited series alongside DuVernay through her banner, Forward Movement. In addition to DuVernay, Attica Locke, Robin Swicord, and Michael Starrbury also serve as writers on the limited series.

The series stars Emmy Award® Nominee Michael K. Williams, Academy Award® Nominee Vera Farmiga, Emmy Award® Winner John Leguizamo, Academy Award® Nominee and Emmy Award® Winner Felicity Huffman, Emmy Award® Nominee Niecy Nash, Emmy Award® Winner and two-time Golden Globe Nominee Blair Underwood, Emmy Award® and Grammy Award® Winner and Tony Award® Nominee Christopher Jackson, Joshua Jackson, Omar J. Dorsey, Adepero Oduye, Famke Janssen, Aurora Perrineau, William Sadler, Jharrel Jerome, Jovan Adepo, Aunjanue Ellis, Kylie Bunbury, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Storm Reid, Chris Chalk, Freddy Miyares, Justin Cunningham, Ethan Herisse, Caleel Harris, Marquis Rodriguez, and Asante Blackk.
