  1. Atlus has revealed the first look at Persona 5: Royal, a re-release of the masterful and critically-acclaimed 2016 JRPG, Persona 5. P5 was credited for re-invigorating the JRPG genre, the Megami Tensei franchise from which Persona and its predecessors spawn from and has since sold over 2 million copies worldwide. In this Japanese trailer, we see an extended look at added content, adding to the over 100+ hours of gameplay the base game had to offer. The clip shows a new party member, new locations for relationship development and a look at the Phantom Thieves in all their glory after main character Joker's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The re-release is expected to hit the western market in 2020.
  2. The current rumor is that they're not taking control until after Extreme Rules.

  4. *wrestling nerd glasses on* I don't think this will lead to anything too significant, but I think it will hopefully at least end the wildcard shit and stop Vince's train of thought on certain storylines, which could be helpful. I'm here for Paul Heyman, IDK what Miss Eric is giving in 2019.

    This reeks of collusion/fake controversy.  
  6. Stomping Grounds: Live Chat

    The site going through an entire re-brand and people feigning surprise there isn't any wrestling discussion, like there hasn't been for the past month and a half.  The girls' matches were cute. The main event was a little underwhelming in-ring but Lacey was a kii as the referee. Roman and Drew served what they should have at WrestleMania.    
  7. Matt Reeves' "The Batman" Fancast and Speculation

    The way she just casually channels her in her everyday fashion. Her being confirmed a stan. A re-creation of something akin to this scene being perfect Fenty Beauty product placement. I would see any movie with her in the role every week for its theatrical run. No cap.  
  8. Kii, because they write their own show not being good into their own canon. And have been continuing to do so for months on end.

Cradled in her arms was her only-born son of her high school sweetheart, David, after making an entrance that, to before the day, Maria herself may have felt impossible. The son, Andrew, was a miracle of sorts. Having been together for eight years, the couple had wed shortly after their collegiate graduations and planned to begin their careers and raise a family. Multiple complications with early attempts within the first two years of their marriage had left Maria discouraged at her own infertility, as if fate was purposefully denying her of one of her greatest aspirations. She had spent the entirety of her pregnancy worried, constantly paranoid about the best ways to keep herself and her baby healthy in order to ensure optimum health for his arrival, still working all the while. The warmth of her son on her breast had contented her woeful heart and would set the tone for Andrew's close relationship with his parents, eternally grateful for their opportunity to bring life to the world; a vibrant, twinkling star in a sky full of uncertainties. Andrew and his parents lived in Berkeley, California, throughout his formative years. The city was home to the University of California, Berkeley, where his parents both attended. His father, David, a proud boriqueño from first-generation immigrants, was happy to begin his adult life in a place that had served as an arena to a litany of social progress. His mother, Maria, of Italian and Spanish origin, echoed the sentiments. Andrew was fortunate to be raised by two driven and compassionate people, who while different, converged mainly in their love for one another, their son and their hope for a better future. David's family had always been working class, while Maria's extended family enjoyed wealth, but discouraged and largely distanced themselves from Maria and her immediately family following word of her intent to marry so young to a boyfriend with little going for him outside of his history degree and an unyielding love of baseball.  Andrew grew up playful, talkative and curious. As his parents continued to work full-time in the city, he'd often spend time with his grandmother, Paola, who lived a half an hour away, listening to records and cooking. As he grew up, he'd pursue baseball, with his father's longtime friend serving as his rec coach and eventually his high school coach. If it wasn't for the social relationships developed with his friends at practice and his father's vested interest in his progress, Andrew would have likely quit then and there: he loathed conformity and procedure and would often get into trouble for playing pranks on his teammates whenever he butted heads with them. Progress within their respective career fields, his father as an associate professor at Berkeley and his mother as a social worker, allowed them to have more flexibility in their lifestyle and vacation more often, instilling in Andrew a higher expectation for academic performance and goal-driven actions rather than just the daydreaming and drawing he'd do while watching MTV. Intelligent and quick-thinking like his parents before him, Andrew succeeded academically, but struggled with finding a career path that he believed would coincide with his parents' expectations and his own personal desires. He played baseball all four years, establishing himself as both a popular student in school and a known class clown, and perhaps the most apologetic one of all. Every time he'd have a laugh that might be at class order's expense, he'd write a handwritten note to excuse himself, something that largely endeared him to the staff and got him off the hook with his parents. He'd graduate with respectable marks with the class of 1997. Andrew was admitted into the University of California, Berkeley, majoring in political science, a move inspired by his mother's work in the public sector. Andrew felt steady in navigating the social aspects, but felt unfulfilled spiritually. He was intelligent, ambitious and found it easy to build rapport with others, which made the idea of him pursuing a degree to validate the skills he already knew himself to possess seem meaningless. He wasn't interested in working in a suit-and-tie job as much as he was in being a voice for his community, but not in the way that voices in the community usually were in Berkeley. What inspired him about the world was the things that people could universally love and understand: music, sports and entertainment. He enjoyed gamesmanship, camaraderie and the divisive and politically-charged campus climate made the things he loved seem trivial. He was inching closer to fitting into a mold and entering a narrative he didn't have much to say in as much as more well-equipped people would. Politics and public outcry were hand-in-hand in a vicious and unending cycle, and as altruistic as pursuing it was on paper, it was emotionally draining. Taking a sharp change of course, he'd drop out of college after a year, a move that was highly controversial with his parents, but ultimately supported. Despite not being the path they'd chosen, they knew their son was destined to due great things. And soon enough, Andrew landed an internship opportunity with WOLA 93.9 in Olympia, California, saved up some money and drove out of his parents' place and into his new destiny. Moving to Olympia in the summer of 1998, Andrew has made a point to associate himself with the local customs, tradition and ascend the ladder within WOLA. In the years that have followed, Andrew's made a name for himself at the station, getting along with his co-workers and upon being granted an opportunity to host an hour of radio last summer, earned high marks and praise for his prank phone call segments, which would become recurring on the station's programming. Andrew longs to gain more coveted airtime slots-- the morning slot, namely-- and discuss more complicated subject matter, musical trends and current events, and become the voice he was meant to be: one with purpose and presence, with a Cheshire grin hidden underneath. PLATONIC: Andrew's list of acquaintances reads like a who's who of both Berkeley and Olympia. He's not one to make awkward eye contact without making conversation, and whether it be from strangers in an elevator or new faces found beneath the colorful lights of a club, Andrew finds it easy to find at least one thing in common with someone. He likes to keep a busy schedule to keep himself from ever feeling bored, lonely or disengaged, so anyone that fits within his hemisphere of passionate, thought-provoking or downright fun-loving people, he tends to keep in touch with. Andrew, however, hasn't been able to keep many of his closest friends from high school. A sacrifice of leaving his hometown behind and moving into the unknown in Olympia, his life has diverged in a different direction to his inner circle. Though it was a risky choice, he's gained more confidence in his new relationships and hopes to find even more friends outside his regular realm of encounter. It's possible these may manifest with those that liken to his past life's confidantes, such as Apollo. ANTAGONISTIC: Andrew's outgoing personality and propensity to pull a prank or two has garnered him some detractors who don't find his humor all that funny. Though he doesn't dwell much on the opinions of others, Andrew can't stand people who abuse power, manipulate others or habitually lie.  Andrew's never one to directly let on when he's not feeling someone. The thoughts will linger in his mind and perhaps confided into someone he trusts, but never enunciated until things reach a breaking point. Should you happen to draw his ire, his wars will be cold, and sometimes, without end. Andrew is known to keep quite the grudge if the predicating situation warrants it. It's possible his opponents could manifest in those that liken to his past life's rivals, such as the Titans, the Eternals, Argus or Cronus. ROMANTIC: Andrew is currently single, perhaps in part to him always mirroring any relationship he has back to the one his mother and father had. His mother and father aren't perfect, but their relationship feels like it. People who have complete spiritual synergy, who while different, feel like they complete a puzzle together. He dated a handful of girls throughout high school and had a few dates in college, but finds that women tend to develop an idea of him in their head and then feel there's a disconnect when they begin to know each other intimately. He's insecure about offering himself up to vulnerability in that sense, and since he's rarely insecure about anything else, finds in most cases it's best to avoid it all together. He hates giving chase to women and will immediately distance himself from girls that speak in coded language or come off judgmental. While he might have a high standard set for long-term, committed relationships, that's not to say he's not down for something casual. Andrew is very passionate and if the girl's got the right energy, he won't say no to being friends with benefits, especially if it feels like she's down to try things other girls wouldn't. His lips won't ever speak a word to anyone else, but the knowing glances he's exchanged with girls across the table at larger friend gatherings say all the words for him.

  10. I think it's a little overhated. It doesn't really line up well with the more traditional approach they took with Batfleck, but it was a unique modern take. It also doesn't help that the movie he was barely in was abysmal. But still, Nicholson and Ledger's performances are too iconic for him to even be included, let alone someone vote for him over them.
  11. The idea of sitting for four hours hurts me, but they deserve this.
  12. THE millennial Batman.   The rest of the stats don't seem super surprising, other than Jared Leto being in the double digits for favorite Joker.
  13. HBW '19 | Online Ariana Latte to release not one, but two new albums! HOLLYWOOD, Ca. -- Ariana Latte has already had a killer first half of 2019, but it seems that her year might be getting even bigger. For the first time in two years, Ariana will finally release new music, with not one, but two new LPs for HBW and music fans to enjoy! While fans believed the Petite Treat had only been focusing her attention on the ring with her recent participation in HBMania and Money in the Bank, it appears that Ariana is ready to unleash the material she had been working on intensely during her hiatus from HBW at the end of 2018. With 27 tracks between the two projects, Ariana has promised a sonic experience 'like (she's) never done before'. Aristas can expect the new albums, respectively titled Sweetener and Thank U, Next, to focus on themes of happiness, self-improvement, insecurity, friendship, betrayal, love and heartbreak. Sounds pretty all-encompassing, right? The albums will be available on July 13th, with a pre-order for the dual release available now. You can check out the album art for both albums down below!

The five-foot-nothing 'Petite Treat' has been dazzling audiences since her debut as one of the founding ladies of HBW, helping put the women's wrestling juggernaut establish itself not just with her high-flying moves, but with her high-hitting notes as a pop superstar. Her album, 'Dangerous Woman',  topped the charts in 2017, all while she performed in the first-ever main event of HBMania under her 'Dangerous Ariana' persona, winning the Women's Championship in the process. While her commitments to music have often conflicted with her wrestling career (and vice versa), fans of the Italian princess have little to fear, as the beautiful Ariana works hard to make sure that her Aristas get the best from her-- both in the ring and in the studio.

  18. Not Moderated: Extreme Rules

    Yeah, it's pretty clear that they're just milking it so they can get out and go to AEW. I really don't care about him but I need Scarlett to figure it the fuck out because that division needs her.

    Girl, this entire situation is a hot ass mess. Killer Kross using Ryan Shitstain like a fucking diary because Impact is making him and Scarlett sit despite them trying to get into AEW before TV starts.

    ARIANA LATTE DEBUTS NEW BEAU?   Pint-sized HBW legend Ariana Latte may break hearts, but it looks like her own has been mended, thanks to the company of a new male companion! We saw Ari getting up close and personal with the mysterious gentleman last month, in a seemingly romantic vacation in Mexico City during Cinco de Mayo (but were asked by her team to withhold the photographs, which we politely obliged by). Now, however, it seems like the lovebirds are ready to come forward with their relationship!   New boy spotted! A joking conversation turns handsy outside the Allstate Arena. Ariana, 25, was seen with her boyfriend, Enrique, 23, leaving the arena after Ariana's participation in the 2019 Money in the Bank Ladder Match, which saw Blake Storm leave as victorious. It turns out the hunky Enrique is an up-and-coming HBW men's competitor, currently touring the live event circuit as he hones his skills in their developmental program. Sources close to the pair say that they linked up upon Ariana's return to the company in February, noting the "instant chemistry" between the two. "Ariana is very guarded ... she's very emotional and keeps her heart on her sleeve, which has lead to her often getting hurt while within the business, hence why she spends time away." The source claims the two are "very close", but are keeping things "casual". "Arique" enjoying time together in Mexico City last month.   We wish the two the very best, as it must be nice for Ari to have someone to reach things on the top shelf for her!
