Hey Walking Dead Fans, Norman Reedus Says Sunday Will be Rough...

Hey Walking Dead Fans, Norman Reedus Says Sunday Will be Rough...

Well honestly there's not much more to say than that. Norman Reedus (Daryl on AMC's The Walking Dead) appeared on The Tonight Show this Thursday and dropped what some are calling a Walking Dead Spoiler. Honestly, you won't really get any new information from the video. BUT, we do learn that we will find out who died on the premier next Sunday. Reedus also said the episode will have a lot of people "kicking their television sets." As for any other information, we're as in the dark as we were 7 months ago. However, you can check out some crazy conspiracy theories about who Negan killed in the last episode HERE, HERE and HERE!

You can also check out the clip of Norman Reedus with Jimmy Fallon below.

If you're looking for a way to get ready for the premier, you can come hang out with myself, Loper, Randi and the rest of the Blitz crew at AimHi on Sunday in New Albany! 

As for my opinion on the next episode, well I don't really know anymore than you guys, but I don't think it looks to good for everyone's favorite pizza delivery boy...

The Undertaker Isn't Looking so Good...

The Undertaker  Isn't Looking so Good...

Well if you've been a fan of the WWE (then WWF) since the early 90s, you know The Undertaker. The Big Dog Deadman, who not only popularized an entire type of match, but holds the record for the longest undefeated streak in Wrestlemania history. Yeah, that Undertaker.

Now, 26 years after he began with the WWE and 32 years after he started his professional wrestling career, The 51-year-old Deadman just isn't looking so good. He's been photographed a few times recently using crutches to walk and the pictures have gone completely viral. I'll go ahead and drop a couple below for your convenience and disbelief.

For what it's worth, Taker has not officially announced his retirement, nor has their been any official statement made on his health. The crutches could be for a recent injury, or the photos could be older than everyone thinks, but He was pulled from a number of WWE live events in the spring. This is all very sudden, considering some gym videos popped up a few months ago of Undertaker in terrifyingly excellent shape for a man of his age.

It sounds like more than anything, we're just going to have to wait on words from Taker himself. I know he's been one of my heroes since I was old enough to choke slam my neighbor, so here's hoping he gives a swift tombstone piledriver to whatever's holding him down and gets back in the ring soon!

Sammy Hagar Had One Hell of a Birthday!

Sammy Hagar Had One Hell of a Birthday!

So Uncle Sammy and I may share the same name, but I can only dream of celebrating like my long-lost relative. Mr. Hagar held his third annual birthday bash south of the border down in Mexico this week. It was a three day rager at the Cabo Wabo Cantina with a guest list featuring the likes of Jerry Cantrell, Vinnie Paul Abbott, Oscar De La Hoya and a bunch of other A-Listers. 

Well like any good over-age frat party, the Birthday Bash sparked an amazing semi-drunken jam session. I'll drop one of the videos below, spoiler alert, its Hagar, Cantrell and some guys from the Circle covering the Beatles! There's another video and some killer pictures from the event too, and you can find those right over HERE

I mean this party looks absolutely amazing. I'm already drafting the email to send to Big H so his name-spawn can catch an invite to next years Bash. But if any of you guys have a more direct way in to this party that doesn't involve breaking and entering, let me know, you can be my plus one.

The Rowdy One Returns

The Rowdy One Returns

​It has almost been a year since we have last seen Ronda Rousey inside the octagon; it has officially been announced that she will return this December!

Rousey last stepped foot in the octagon on November 14, 2015 at UFC 193, where she lost the Bantaweight Championship to challenger Holly Holm. Rousey would not challenge Holm to a rematch due to scheduling conflicts. Holm would soon lose the title to Miesha Tate at UFC 196. 

Rousey has had a pretty quiet 2016 so far as she has not made many public appearances. Her notable outings include hosting SNL, having knee surgery, opening up about having suicidal thoughts, signing a 3 movie deal with Lifetime, and more. 

Rousey makes her return to the octagon more than one year after her last fight on December 30, 2016 at UFC 207 against Amanda Nunes for the World Bantaweight Championship.

Watch the full interview where UFC President Dana White tells Colin Cowherd of Fox Sports One about the return of Ronda Rousey below.

MUST SEE FOR STAR WARS FANS!!!

MUST SEE FOR STAR WARS FANS!!!

​Whether you've only seen the original trilogy or are a mega fan girl/boy such as myself, you HAVE to watch these cinematic trailers for STAR WARS: The Old Republic! I'll be honest. The game itself is much different than the videos, but they're so well done they almost make up for the prequels (almost).

"Sacrifice" was released last year to promote the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion while "Betrayed" sets the tone for Knights of the Eternal Throne, coming out December 2nd. You can find more details on the game here.

You Can Buy Slash's Guitar!

You Can Buy Slash's Guitar!

Yes you read that right! A classic Slash guitar from 30 years ago and is being put up for auction through Julien's Auctions. It's his metallic red B.C. Rich Warlock from the Hollywood era of Guns N' Roses. This is the guitar that Slash used for his first show with Hollywood Rose, the first show with the classic line-up of GNR and three of GNR's full-length albums. He wrote and/or performed almost all of the songs on Appetite for Destruction with this song AND he used it to audition for Poison in 1985! (Yeah, Slash auditioned for Poison

There's no word yet on an official starting price, although you can vulture Julien's website and wait for that to get posted. If you purchase the guitar it comes with the original custom Anvil hard case, a signed letter of authenticity and a timeline of the guitars absolutely incredible influence on rock history. There are some more details on the guitar itself and you can find all of those right over HERE. Also, here's a video of Slash jamming on this particular axe, sorry in advance for the poor

Unfortunately, the top office here at The Blitz doesn't pay me nearly enough to cast a bid on this beauty, but if any of you can, you can shoot me an email through the website. Then we can become very good friends and I will sit quietly in your living room and marvel at your purchase. It'll be fun, I promise!

Seriously. Hit me up. I'll bring beer.

So Alter Bridge just did something really cool!

So Alter Bridge just did something really cool!

​So back on September 25th in Champaign, Illinois, there was a shooting which left one man dead. This man's best friend was shot in the back and still has the bullet inside of him. Well recently this man, Erik Lasaine, quoted Alter Bridge's song "Blackbird" at a eulogy for his best friend. Myles Kennedy and the guys heard this story and were compelled to reach out. Long story short: The band offered to fly Lasaine out to their show in Dallas at the House of Blues. This is a really killer story and my terrible blogging skills wont do it justice, so you can catch more of this story right HERE thanks to Blabbermouth!

We Have a Trailer for Officer Downe Directed by Slipknot's Clown!

We Have a Trailer for Officer Downe Directed by Slipknot's Clown!

Sorry if that headline was a little hard to follow, but this is sort of a hard one to put in to words. So if you know Slipknot, you know Clown a.k.a. 6. Well his real name is Michael Shawn Crahan, and besides being the only remaining founding member of Slipknot, he is also a big shot Hollywood movie director! Well the trailer for the percussionists new movie dropped today and it looks incredible!

The movie is called Officer Downe. It's been in production for about three years and is based off a graphic novel by Joe Casey. Metal Injection has some details about the movie right over HERE and also some information about the trailer HERE. But I'll tell you the cool parts so you don't have to leave my beautiful blog. Really, all that's important here is that Corey Taylor, who recently collaborated with KoRn for their newest video, has a cameo roll in the movie! As does Glenn Howerton, better known as Dennis from Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

The movie is scheduled to be released on November 18th and is slated to skip the theaters and head straight to streaming. I think it looks like a killer movie (no pun intended) but take a look for yourself and let me know what you think!

Trailer for The Grand Tour

So here's the trailer for our new show, debuting on Amazon Prime November 18th. Enjoy!

You Can Be In Metallica's New Music Video!

You Can Be In Metallica's New Music Video!

​All you need to do is get yourself to San Francisco on October 11th and 12th! Yeah, I know, it's really far away, but I thought you were a big Metallica fan! I mean, that's why you clicked this link right?


So, in all seriousness, Metallica did actually put out a casting call for their new music video. There's still no word on what song this will be for or when the video will be released. All we know is they need some rowdy looking fans for crowd shots, and apparently a few street fighters. You can get all the details straight from the mouth of Metallica right here.


I'm not really expecting anyone from Columbus to fly all the way over there, but if you do, please let me know! I'll give you my "hi mom" sign so it'll almost be like I was there. And really, if you're a real fan, you'd travel anywhere to be in their videos right? I'm guessing Joe already has his tickets, that guy really looks like a street fighter.
