WWE TLC 2018 : Probably A recovery of the failure WWE Crown Jewel

So WWE is back once again with another Pay-Per-View event, the famous WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs or The TLC. Now that we’re talking about PPVs, we’re reminded of the long forgotten PPV Crown Jewel, which took place on November 2nd 2018 in Saudi Arabia. Not to mention, it was a disaster.

So, one PPV again? Well, that’s what WWE is all about. Keep entertaining people even if you’ve one or two downs. So, we now are going to witness TLC. History describes TLC to be one of the best PPV events WWE conducts, and it should be the best this year after all the mayhem Crown Jewel caused. At least we hope so!

WWE has already faced back-to-back blows, starting from the Crown Jewel, to the death of some superstars, to RAW facing crisis in viewership and attendance, to the biggest of all, Roman Reigns’ relinquishing The Universal Title and quitting WWE for a long time. After all these, we cannot afford another forfeit.

So far looking at the match card, The TLC 2018 is looking good on paper. And hope it just recovers the loss caused to WWE by the Crown Jewel.

WWE TLC 2018

Let’s take a look at the matches scheduled for TLC 2018, which is going to be held in San Jose, California

1. INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP – SETH ROLLINS (c) vs DEAN AMBROSE

The SHIELD brothers are in a feud once again. After Roman Reigns left WWE for his battle against Leukaemia, Dean took his heel turn on Seth, once again. And by far this feud has been the support pillar for the weak RAW. After a series of sneaky attacks on Seth, Dean finally was put in a match against him. Or rather should we say, Seth got his chance to get his hands on Dean. This time, it’ll be for the IC Championship. Let’s see who swings up! Expect Dean to win a title after a long time.

2. BRAUN STROWMAN vs BARON CORBIN ( TLC Match)

Baron has been grabbing the spotlight after his appointment as the Constable first, and then the Acting General Manager. He started his feud against Strowman and has taken it to a new level after injuring him badly by working with Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre. Braun was fed up with Corbin and things worsened after he cost Braun his Universal Championship match. Stephanie McMahon gave Braun his match against Corbin in the TLC. If Braun wins, he’ll get his title rematch against Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, but if Corbin wins, he’ll become the permanent GM of RAW. Let’s see who wins. Fir the betterment of RAW, let’s see Braun win, if ever he fights!

3. RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP – RONDA ROUSEY (c) vs NIA JAX

After getting a brisk beating in the hands of Charlotte Flair at Survivor Series, Ronda has to now focus on Nia Jax. The Irresistible Force wants so-called her title back. And she has her partner Tamina in her corner. Ronda has a big obstacle to overcome, and let’s see will she be able to overcome it or not. Expect Ronda to dis-arm Nia.

4. SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP – BECKY LYNCH (c) vs CHARLOTTE FLAIR vs ASUKA ( TLC Match )

The first-ever women’s TLC match, thanks to Smackdown General Manager Paige. Becky Lynch is back from her injuries caused by Nia Jax and is looking forward to defend her title. Charlotte Flair just finished a beating session against Ronda Rousey and got her title rematch. Both were pumped up for the match when a twist came. Ask the women of SmackDown cane out and demanded a chance for the title, and hence a rumble match was arranged where Asuka win and got her shot. Triple Threat ? Expect Becky to crush her opponents.

5. SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP – THE BAR (c) vs THE NEW DAY vs THE USOS

As compared to the RAW tag team champions The Authors Of Pain, the tag team scene in the blue brand has been a good one, but has been becoming a bit boring day by day. Let’s hope we get some new kick after this TLC. But, the question is, will The Bar be able to retain their titles?

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP – THE BAR (c) vs THE NEW DAY vs THE USOS

6. FINN BALÓR vs DREW McINTYRE

The blood has been boiling between the two since the recent few weeks, and Finn has been dominated by the trio of Corbin, Lashley and McIntyre. But the feud has been built between Finn and Drew. After he was beaten black and blue by Corbin, Lashley and McIntyre, Finn returned fir a revenge and cost Drew his match against his former ally Dolph Ziggler. So the rivalry has been taken to the TLC, and we hope things square up here with Finn’s win, but rumours say that WWE wants Drew to win. Keep your fingers crossed! Hope things to go in a different way to see Drew win.

FINN BALÓR vs DREW McINTYRE

7. ELIAS vs BOBBY LASHLEY

After Leo Rush joined him, Lashley has got a boost in his performance. He took his heel turn and has been doing his work as a great negative since then, with partly teaming up with his heel partners, Corbin and McIntyre. And when things come to Elias, he couldn’t achieve much as a heel, so he’s been given a push by the WWE by making him the face. He’s among those who got beaten up by the Heel Trio. And hence he’s put on a match against Lashley. I get a feeling that he’s going to win.

ELIAS vs BOBBY LASHLEY

8. NATALYA vs RUBY RIOTT –

This rivalry started after Ruby Riott broke Natalya’s father’s goggles during a match. This hurt Natalya badly, in fact very badly. So, she went out for a revenge. After being continuously beaten by the Riott Squad, Natalya has finally got her chance to take her revenge. This match wasn’t previously settled, but after being crushed on a table by the Riott Squad, this match will be fun to watch. Expect Natalya to break Ruby’s hand into two!

NATALYA vs RUBY RIOTT –

So these was the match card and hope that these matches are enough to bring WWE back to track. If this PPV fails, then God knows who’ll save WWE! But it doesn’t look like this one’s going to fail. Let’s see!

She said the Covid lockdown was “tough” on her mentally because she wasn’t used to being alone. “It was tough. Tough for everyone — mentally, especially. The world wasn’t making sense.”

She told Vogue magazine:

“I was able to be still for a long time. Inspiration finally came when I remembered the little things that I love to do, the simple things that make me happy: grocery shopping, taking walks, going on bike rides, cooking.

“Those little things that I’m trying to incorporate into my lifestyle now that the outside is opening up again and we’re about to get right back into what things used to look like. I’m trying to make sure that I still keep those things in my life.”

When it comes to her own self-confidence, Rihanna said:

“I make a point to be present, I look at what’s around me, who is around me.

“And then I’m just grateful for those things; grateful for the moment. I think about how far I’ve come. And how much worse it could be — I could have missed all of this.”

However, there are still days when she doesn’t feel so confident, and she has a tip for those days.

“Pretend. Just pretend, girl. You have your days where you do and your days where you don’t, but push through, just be sure. You belong here, you’re sexy. Own your sh*t.”

“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. However for every goodbye God makes the next hello closer. Come out and watch me, leave it all out on the stage… One last time… Just for you & as my last rose petal falls, I say farewell…”

Her last sentence left some fans confused. Teyana reportedly underwent a double mastectomy after discovering lumps in her breasts in Miami earlier this year.

Due to her family history of cancer she decided not to take any chances.

Cleanup organizer describes Third World conditions at migrant camp in Texas; Thousands of pounds of garbage hauled away

A cleanup organizer described the third world conditions that exist at the Haitian immigrant encampment under the Del Rio international bridge.

John Rourke, who organizes cleanups around the world, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show on Wednesday.

Rourke said he was disturbed by the unsanitary conditions where thousands of Haitians live in squalor under the bridge.

He said his organization picked up thousands of pounds of garbage from under the bridge.

Rourke described Haitians using sticks and branches to build makeshift lean-to shelters under trees near the bridge. The migrants were forced to move because the mounds of smelly garbage attracted flies, coyotes, roaches, and red ants.

“Let me tell you what I saw,” Rourke told Tucker.

“I saw people washing babies in the Rio Grande.

“I saw ladies breastfeeding babies, sleeping in dirt, 107 degrees outside, red ants everywhere, real coyotes – the ones that have four legs walking around.

“People are literally knocking down trees and setting up lean-tos and teepees and sleeping under those.”

Over 15,000 Haitians made the perilous journey from South America and Mexico after messages on What’s app told them U.S. Pres. Joe Biden would treat them kindly and give them jobs.

On the last leg of the trip – crossing the Rio Grande in knee-deep water – they were met by Border Patrol agents who herded them back into the murky water.

YouTube/Project Veritas

Project Veritas released the second video of its undercover Covid-19 vaccine investigative series on Wednesday.

Part 2 exposes a U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA] official calling for forced vaccinations of Black people.

According to the CDC, over 70% of Black New Yorkers are unvaccinated.

Project Veritas went undercover to record FDA economist, Taylor Lee, calling for forced vaccinations of Black people and keeping a “registry” for all unvaccinated Americans.

In the video, Lee said U.S. Government policy should be similar to Nazi Germany when it comes to forcing people to take the vaccine.

Lee said health officials should go door-to-door forcing vaccines on people who are hesitant or fearful.

“Census goes door-to-door if you don’t respond. So, we have the infrastructure to do it. I mean, it’ll cost a ton of money. But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren’t vaccinated. Although that’s sounding very [much like Nazi] Germany.”

He also suggested blowing vaccine-filled darts at Black people who don’t comply.

“I think that a lot of the time — so there’s also this issue of — I remember reading about how with Covid trials, they were having an issue recruiting African American people. It was because of a different medication the government tried to do that was specifically designed to kill African Americans.”

Veritas Journalist: “Yeah. Can’t blame [African Americans].”

Lee: “I can’t. But at the same time, like, blow dart. That’s where we’re going… Again, blow darts. It is the perfect answer.”

In Part 1 of the Covid vaccination series, an undercover nurse working for the federal government recorded an HHS doctor saying the vaccine “is full of sh-t.”

Part 1 garnered over 4 million views in less than 24 hours on YouTube.com. It was scrubbed from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

RIP: Filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles Dead at 89

Francois G. Durand/WireImage

Filmmaker, author and songwriter Melvin Van Peebles has died from natural causes. He was 89.

Melvin Van Peebles is best known for his cult classics Watermelon Man and Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song.

A family statement reads:

“In an unparalleled career distinguished by relentless innovation, boundless curiosity and spiritual empathy, Melvin Van Peebles made an indelible mark on the international cultural landscape through his films, novels, plays and music.

“His work continues to be essential and is being celebrated at the New York Film Festival this weekend with a 50th anniversary screening of his landmark film Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song; a Criterion Collection box set, Melvin Van Peebles: Essential Films next week; and a revival of his play Ain’t Supposed to Die a Natural Death, slated for a return to Broadway next year.”

Dubbed the Godfather of Black Cinema, Van Peebles shot to fame with his mainstream directorial debut, The Story of a Three-Day Pass, and landed the job of bringing Watermelon Man to the big screen in 1970.

The racial satire, starring Godfrey Cambridge, was a huge hit, landing Van Peebles a three-picture deal at Columbia.

However, movie executives were not supportive of his follow-up, Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song, which Van Peebles made anyway using cash loaned to him by Bill Cosby.

His filmmaking credits also include Identity Crisis, which starred his son Mario Van Peebles, and Posse, in which he co-starred with his son.

The woman who accused Nicki Minaj‘s husband, Kenneth Petty, of sexual assault criticized the rapper for attempting to make her retract her claims in her first TV interview.

Jennifer Hough appeared on daytime talk show The Real on Wednesday, September 22, where she revealed she was tired of being afraid.

She previously accused Nicki and Petty of running a campaign of intimidation and bribery to drop her claims.

Hough alleged that Nicki and her associates repeatedly reached out to her and her family in an effort to get her to deny she was sexually assaulted by Petty in 1994, when she was 15.

Petty, 43, served four years in prison for attempted rape and seven years for first-degree manslaughter as a young man.

Speaking to hosts Garcelle Beauvais and Adrienne Bailon on The Real, Hough said:

“I feel like the actions that were taken in regards to this whole situation have put me in a different type of fear… and it was wrong. I don’t want to be afraid anymore. So the only way not to be afraid is to continue to speak up.”

She recalled her sexual assault, saying Petty forced her into a house after they met at a bus stop. Afterwards, Hough called the police and watched as they brought Petty out of the house in handcuffs. Police took her to a nearby hospital for a rape kit.

Petty was convicted and placed on a sex offender list, but Nicki has always maintained her husband and Jennifer were dating at the time of the incident. She insisted Petty was 15 at the time.

“It wasn’t true,” Hough said. “We both were 16, we were never in a relationship. I just felt woman to woman that was wrong of her.”

Petty recently pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender in California. He has entered a plea deal which calls for him to serve prison time. He will learn his sentence in an upcoming hearing.

Petty is suing New York officials to get his name off the state’s Sex Offender Registry.

He claims he never got the chance to challenge the default ruling back in 2004 because he was in prison at the time, and he was never served with a summons.

Hough is suing Nicki and Petty for intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment, and witness intimidation.

His family last heard from him on the evening of Monday, August 23, 2021.

Jelani’s mother is desperate for answers. “I can’t even describe it to you, because it hurts really bad because I don’t know where my baby is.”

Carmen Bolden Day reported Jelani missing after he failed to show up for classes at ISU. She said she last heard from him on Aug. 23.

“He told me he was going to class and that he would call me later. He called me later on that night. (He) didn’t want nothing, we were just talking. And he said again, ‘OK momma, I’ll talk to you later. I just wanted to hear your voice.’ And that was our last conversation, on Monday the 23rd.”

She said Jelani was studying to be a doctor.

“Everything’s been hard, but the hardest part is just missing his presence. He’s just not there,” said Dacara.

William “Willie” Garson kept his sexuality secret to avoid the controversy of a heterosexual playing a ghey man on TV.

Garson died Tuesday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57.

Willie Garson played openly ghey Stanford Blatch, a beloved talent agent who was referred to as the “Fifth Lady” in HBO’s Sex and the City.

Garson played his role so well that fans of the show assumed he was homosexual in real life.

In an interview with Page Six last year Willie explained how he kept his sexuality a secret “for years” over fears his heterosexuality would be “offensive to gay people”.

“For years I didn’t talk about it because I found it to be offensive to gay people. People playing gay characters jumping up and down screaming that they’re not gay, like that would somehow be a bad thing if they were.”

He added:

“When the question would come up during the show I would say, ‘When I was on White Collar no one ever asked me if I was a conman, and when I was on NYPD Blue, nobody ever asked me if I was a murderer.

“This is what we do for a living, portray people.”

Outrage as border agents on horseback ’round up’ Haitians for deportation; DHS tells Haiti’s government to expect EIGHT flights per day

PAUL RATJE/AFP via Getty Images

A top border official criticized White House secretary Jen Psaki for her reaction to horrendous photos of border agents on horseback corralling Haitian migrants.

Border agents on horseback chased down frightened Haitian immigrants in Del Rio, Texas on Sunday.

About 15,000 immigrants who migrated to Texas from South America and Mexico were living in squalor under the Del Rio international bridge at the US-Mexico border.

Reportedly, the border agents were ordered to round up the migrants for deportation back to Haiti.

When asked about the shameful behavior of the border agents, Psaki said the videos were “horrible to watch,” and condemned the agents’ actions.

Psaki and other Democrats claimed the agents were “whipping” the Haitian migrants.

However, Border Patrol agent and head of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd lashed out at Psaki for “perpetuating the narrative that police are bad.”

Judd claims Psaki and the Biden administration knew the border agents were not whipping people with their reins.

He said it is protocol for agents to “twirl” their reins to keep people away from the horses.

“There are very few things that will boil my blood as bad as the White House directly coming out and condemning an action before they know what happened,” Judd told Just the News.

“Jen Psaki came out yesterday, and she condemned these actions, when in reality, it is a legitimate law enforcement action. This was meant to protect the illegal aliens.”

Judd said agents are trained for crowd control by the Homeland Security Department to “twirl the reins” so humans aren’t trampled by the horses.

“We have to keep those individuals away from the horses. If they get too close to the horses, the horses could step on them and they could break bones. They could kick them. They can get kicked in the head. It could cause death.”
