The WWE dropped Randy Orton from the upcoming film "The Marine: Homefront" because of his troubled past with the United States Marine Corps.

"WWE demonstrated poor judgment in signing Randy Orton for the third installment of the film 'The Marine,'" WWE told TMZ in a statement. "Despite Randy's popularity, the fact that he was dishonorably discharged from the USMC made...

Randy Orton vs. Kane

Alfonso: Randy Orton

I believe WWE has already begun advertising a three-way world title match at Extreme Rules with Orton taking on Daniel Bryan and Sheamus. So it looks like this match will be one and done, in which case it makes no sense to put Kane over. Orton hits the RKO and makes relatively quick work out of the Big Red Monster.

One of the biggest debates among fans the week of Wrestlemania is the match order for the pay per view.

To many fans, the pecking order of matches is very important as it symbolizes importance as the show makes its way toward the main event. Yet, a Wrestlemania card is not always booked from least important to most important match. If that was the case, then why was the Women’s Title at Wrestlemania...

The WWE had one last chance to promote Wrestlemania on their flagship television show last night. Raw was held in Atlanta -- the host city of last year’s Wrestlemania -- at the Philips Arena where just about a year ago the “once in a lifetime match” was made between The Rock and John Cena.

Last night’s Raw in Philadelphia featured more of the same: lots of talking and very little action between the stars who make up the three biggest feuds going into Wrestlemania.

It’s evident that The Rock and John Cena are talking circles at this point. The same could be said with Undertaker and Triple H, while the CM Punk-Chris Jericho angle continues to get deeply personal. Let’s start there.

Last night we held our first ever live blog for Raw and you can see my rambling thoughts of the show in real-time by clicking here.

Let’s kick off with what the entire show was based around: The Rock and John Cena. Rocky delivered three recorded segments throughout the show from various parts of Boston. Keyword: recorded – that will come up a little later on so store that in the back of your...

Chris Jericho’s return as the 2012 mystery man was indeed very predictable. At the same time it was welcomed by fans...... Somewhat.

(Scroll to the bottom to see Jericho's return on "Raw.")

The return itself started well as the fans in Memphis gave the Long Island native a tremendous ovation. After pandering to the fans for 10 minutes, Jericho exited without saying a word....

WWE draft predictions

The annual WWE Draft takes place tonight. And if past draft shows are any evidence, WWE will undoubtedly be looking to create a buzz with some big moves.

Unfortunately, there are fewer of those big moves to make than ever before. Because of a general dearth of star power, and WWE being lax about keeping its two brands truly separate, there aren’t many roster changes that would come off...
