NYT: Jesse Ventura gets $1.8 million in defamation trial win


The New York Times reported yesterday that the jury in the Jesse "The Body" Ventura defamation trial ruled 8-2 in his favor and awarded him $1.8 million in damages. It seems inevitable that the ruling will be contested by the Kyle estate, but it does give Ventura public bragging rights for now. Such a silver tongued public orator, shaped by nearly two decades of cutting top class wrestling promos and doing color commentary, will be tough to beat in the witness box, and thus he'll likely win the final legal war too.

Jesse Ventura defamation trial: Jury deliberating

Will Jesse "The Body" Ventura be vindicated in the court of law and win his lawsuit against the late Chris Kyle for defamation? Kyle claimed that he had assaulted Ventura in 2006 for anti-American...


Video: Watch the full WWE Mattel presentation from the San Diego Comic Con


Combine a rowdy crowd with the super over Daniel Bryan, the quick witted Paul Heyman and the legendary Hulk Hogan and the result is a Q&A as awesome as you'd expect with those three. Even Michael Cole does a great job of presiding over affairs. One of the highlights was a fan asking Daniel Bryan whether he gets paid royalties for appearing on the WWE Network like pay-per-view in the past. Bryan's brutally honest and humorous answer: "Yeah, I don't think anyone knows how that works, it's a new system." Then Sting turns up in full Crow garb as a surprise. Enjoy, Cagesiders.

The Rock's Hercules movie open does alright

Although Hercules wasn't quite the smash hit that I'm sure The Rock hoped for, early figures suggest that the film is on course to make a healthy profit and should solidify his status as one of...

Undertaker doesn't expect to ever wrestle again

Video: The Rock would 'love to wrestle again'

As ever, The Rock's wrestling brain overrules his heart. He'd love to wrestle another match for WWE again, but only if the opponent is right. That could be Brock Lesnar, but WWE don't seem keen on...

Cageside Quote: Roman Reigns on the break-up of The Shield


I could have really seen The Shield closing down every single show for the next three years. I think we had that ability and that we were that hot. I think it's an understatement that the vast majority of the fans loved The Shield. But we didn't have too many opponents left to face. Possibly the Wyatts, but you can't really go above Evolution, especially after beating them twice. Between myself, Dean and Seth, we're doing the exact same thing The Shield was doing, but we're doing it on our own now.... I knew that whenever the split would happen, all three of us would be doing something special. I'm proud to say that fortunately for me I'm in the position I'm in, that fortunately for him Seth is in the position he is in and the same with Dean. We all came out looking good and smelling like roses I think from The Shield's break-up.

In an interview with Patric Laprade of SLAM! Wrestling, Roman Reigns understands why The Shield were split up at the peak of their popularity and is happy with the end result, not just for himself, but also his former partners Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. Your thoughts, Cagesiders?

Report: Tonight's WWE Raw mystery return guest


The former WWE champion returning tonight on Raw is Chris Jericho. The nature of his role, I have not confirmed. Jericho is also tentatively slated to appear on tomorrow's Smackdown taping in Newark, NJ.

We'll have to wait to see if he's right, but he called Chris Jericho's last mystery man return correctly unlike others. For whatever this is worth, Jericho tweeted a couple of days ago "Yes" when asked whether he was supposed to take Wade Barrett's spot in the Money In The Bank ladder match on Sunday and crowed that "I invented #MoneyInTheBank…literally". UPDATE: The mystery return guest turned out to be The Miz. UPDATE TWO: They swerved us and Jericho did, in fact, return as well. Awesome.

Potential spoiler: hints at the identity of tonight's big return of a former WWE champion


Details on this potential return are scarce, but sources say that this ring warrior is a cross-platform entertainer who has found numerous successes outside of the squared circle.

Hmm, sounds like a former reality TV star who has appeared in a few WWE movies would fit the bill.

Kane is the "gamblers" favorite to win the WWE title tonight

Kane_april_2014 has reported that a lot of "gamblers" have been betting big money on Kane today to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in tonight's Money In The Bank main event ladder match. So much so, he's now the -170 favorite to win the belt at online wagering site 5Dimes and is also the favorite at British bookmakers SkyBet and Ladbrokes. Such a sudden swing in odds is usually a sign that people with insider knowledge are trying to make some easy extra cash, but we'll see if that's the case here again later tonight.
