How Zack Ryder used social media to catapult to WWE Superstardom [Interview]

WWE Zack Ryder social media interview

WWE makes it's return to Everett for the first time in a number of years this evening. For those who don't know, you guys are typically in and out when it comes to a city. Aside from Wrestlemania week, do you get to enjoy your time in a given city?

Not at all. We fly in, find a gym, eat, and head to the arena. We do the show, and we leave to do it again. I've definitely seen some cool airports, hotels, arenas, but we don't get to enjoy our time in the various cities.

What would you say would be the best trip you've taken when you've been on the road?

WrestleMania in Orland was amazing. I went to DisneyLand with my family and had a lot of fun. WrestleMania means we get to spend a full week in one location, so we can enjoy it since it's a break from the in and out that we typically experience on the road.

Let's take a step back. I think it's safe to say that the reason we are having this discussion right now is because you took it upon yourself to get noticed in any way that you could, grabbing that brass ring through the use of social media. Wanna tell us about that?

Yeah, definitely! My whole life I wanted to be a WWE Superstar. That's the only thing I ever wanted to be. I got signed in 2006 and got called up to the main roster in 2007…but I wasn't really doing anything, you know? By February 2011, I was kind of fed up. It wasn't my dream to be just "some guy" on the show. I wanted to be one of the top guys. At the time in February 2011, when I started the YouTube show, I didn't have an action figure. I didn't have a promotional 8x10. I wasn't on TV. I was like a joke. I had no merchandise…nothing.

Recent WWE television spots have been promoting the arrival of a "revolution," causing many to speculate what exactly that would be. As it turns out, the revolution that will be revealed this Monday night on Raw is the WWE '13 video game. Above we have a leaked video that seems to lack sound, showing off CM Punk in the commercial spot, followed by some footage from the game, including a recreation of Mark Henry and The Big Show destroying the ring with a superplex, foreshadowing that this will be something you can do in the game itself.


Reality News: ‘WWE’, ‘Big Brother’, ‘Dancing with the Stars’, ‘Survivor’

Friday Night SmackdownAfter ten years with the CW/UPN organizations, the wrestlers of the WWE are now in search of a new home.  - a decent ratings earner for the network - wasn’t apparently considered worthy of its renewal price.  Displeased with recent negotiations, World Wrestling Entertainment has started shopping its product around town.

Although the loss of the show will now create a two-hour void in ‘s weekend lineup, the network will now have a place to shelve their experiments gone wrong (e.g. Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants).  Or maybe they can use the spot to air marathons of or Beauty and the Geek

Whatever they ultimately do, they have until Sept. 12th to figure it out.

Project Runway: Season 4: ‘Raw Talent’

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Bravo, Cable, Features,

Project Runway WWE episodeWhat is the polar opposite of high fashion? I’m guessing professional wrestling after watching tonight’s episode of on Bravo.  Tonight’s challenge had the six remaining designers creating a look for the Divas of .  (That stands for World Wrestling Entertainment for the uninitiated.)

This challenge took the lingerie and figure skating challenges of seasons past to a whole new and tackier level. You don’t need a degree from Parsons to know that under the best of circumstances it is hard to make spandex, stretchy lace and rhinestones classy or wearable.

Despite the violence they inflict in the ring, the Divas of WWE seem like fairly nice gals. They requested outfits that best showcased their wrestling alter egos… like the sexy tomboy or sexy gold digger or my favorite: the classy sexpot.

CNN Documentary Reveals Poor Journalism

Cena Screwed On CNNProfessional wrestling has long been the red-headed stepchild of both entertainment and sports - dismissed as “fake”  for its predetermined outcomes and often criticized for its over-the-top personalities. So it comes as no surprise that when WWE superstar Chris Benoit killed his family and himself several months ago, pro-wrestling’s detractors saw their opening.

Since that day, speculation over the possible, albeit unlikely, link to those deaths and steroids has opened WWE to federal investigations as well as a firestorm of public/media scrutiny. Among the pieces supposedly “exposing” the steroid use of WWE superstars was CNN’s Death Grip: Inside Pro Wrestling, which aired this past week. In this broadcast, former WWE Champion John Cena was asked if he had ever used steroids. CNN showed his frank response as: “I can’t tell you that I haven’t, but you’ll never be able to prove that I have.”

But that’s not how Cena responded to the question. Join me after the jump for his full answer.

Donald Trump Bets His Famous Comb-Over

Donald Trump Donald Trump has bet his famous hairdo for a wrestling event. He and World Wrestling Entertainment chairman Vince McMahon both bet their hair for the WrestleMania 23 event on April 1st. A recent taping of Raw, to air on February 15th on the USA Network, shows Trump challenging McMahon to a match. The challenge was brought on after McMahon wanted Trump in his “dubious Mr. McMahon Kiss My Ass Club,” as well as the accusation that Trump stole “You’re Fired!” from McMahon. Trump had some fightin’ words for McMahon, which will air on the February 15th show, saying, “I am here to challenge you to a match at WrestleMania. And I am going to kick your ass!” Of course, these guys can’t actually get into a ring (although that might be interesting), so each will have a representative wrestle for them. Trump’s ultimate challenge? “If my guy loses, you can shave my head. But if your guy loses, I’m going to shave your head!”
