Dolph Ziggler has been one of the most popular wrestlers in the WWE for the past five years, and yet has been buried to the bottom of the card with no real indication of how or when he will rebound. Ziggler is drawing comparisons to Mr. Perfect: both wrestlers seem to have all the skills in and out of the ring, but for some reason or another they cannot catch that break every world title holder receives. While Ziggler won the World Heavyweight title a little over a year ago when he cashed in his Money in the Bank, but he only held the title for two months.

So, what should WWE do with Ziggler? What potential interesting matchups could Ziggler be involved with, which could benefit both WWE and Ziggler? Continue reading Brad’s Bumps: What Should the WWE do with Dolph Ziggler? »

1. Cliff “Robertson” Notes:

* Red Sox are 0-3 with Stephen Drew on the roster
* If Kevin Love doesn’t come here – could this weekend been playing with us
* The last 40 seconds in the first game of NHL Stanley Cup was electric
* Horse racing is desperate for a Triple Crown

2. NFL players with great numbers that didn’t do it for me:

* Emmitt Smith
* Drew Bledsoe

* Tony Romo
* Eric Moulds

The Heat and Spurs will duke it out once more for basketball's greatest prize. (http://www.theguardian.com/)

The NBA Finals are here, and it’s a rematch from the previous season with San Antonio and Miami squaring off for all the marbles. Of the past six such rematches, only Michael Jordan’s Bulls were able to win both years. But if anyone else can duplicate the feat, it’s LeBron James and his loaded lineup. Of course, San Antonio can win just as easily. That fact made its way into our predictions, with our experts split as to who will win. However, most agree on a lengthy series, which would certainly be appropriate for something of this magnitude.

For the Finals, we’ve added the scoring category of choosing the Finals MVP, which was generally easy to choose for for either team that was picked to win. And in addition, all picks are doubled! That means that picking the winner of the series is worth four points, while picking how many games the series will last and the MVP are worth two points each.

And in the event any of our experts tie, we’ll also be predicting how many points will be scored in the series’ FINAL GAME by Miami’s Big Three of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh COMBINED.

So check below for our picks, and come back when the Finals is complete for the final standings and results. Continue reading 2014 NBA Playoffs Expert Picks: NBA Finals »

After what seemed like another boring and uneventful Monday Night Raw, I was shocked to see that the Shield’s alliance of three is now over. Seth Rollins betrayed his Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns with thunderous chair shots that made Roman Reigns’ back look like split over Reese’s milkshake (score one for the strange metaphor chart). But seriously, what were the events that lead to this betrayal of WWE’s most beloved active faction? Why would Rollins dare be a traitor?

Evolution Needed a New Member

Starting off Raw, Evolution came to the ring after losing to the Shield the night before. Triple H insisted that Evolution will beat The Shield in the next pay-per-view, and for the first time in what seems like forever, Batista spoke up. Continue reading Brad’s Bumps: The Shield Breaks, Evolution Adapts »

Jonathan Quick and Henrik Lundqvist will lead powerful defenses into what should be a great Finals. (http://www.nhlsnipers.com/)

The Stanley Cup Finals are here. The Kings look to repeat their success in recent years, while the Rangers haven’t been to the Finals since 1994 (a win over Vancouver). Still, with goalies like these two have, anything is possible. But each side also has some pop on offense as well. It’ll be a fun series, that’s for sure.

Just in time for the Finals, our Pick ‘Em features a new scoring category: picking who will end up as Playoff MVP when all is said and done. And in addition, all point values are doubled! That means that guessing the winner of the series is worth four points, while guessing how many games the series will last and the MVP are worth two pointseach.

And if any of us finish tied, the tie will be broken by guessing the combined save percentage of Henrik Lundqvist and Jonathan Quick in the series’ final game only. That means pooling both of their saves and shots faced, then dividing the former by the latter.

So with that in mind, check below for the complete pick sets, and come back when the Stanley Cup winner is determined for the final results and standings. Continue reading 2014 NHL Playoffs Expert Picks: Stanley Cup »
