Mercedes Martinez Removed From The Robert Stone Brand (Videos)

Published

on

Mercedes Martinez has been kicked out of The Robert Stone Brand.

Last night’s WWE NXT Super Tuesday II main event saw Rhea Ripley defeat Martinez in a Steel Cage match, billed as The Battle of The Badasses. The match saw Robert Stone try to interfere, but Ripley shut him down from the top of the cage.

As seen above, WWE released a post-show video where Stone and Aliyah called an emergency press conference. Stone said due to creative differences, Martinez is no longer with The Robert Stone Brand. He added that no one is bigger than The Brand, and Martinez tried to take it to a different direction. He also said now that she’s gone he has more money to spend on signing big name TV talents.

Stone also had McKenzie Mitchell deliver a restraining order to Martinez, which you can see in the video below. Martinez simply tore the paper up without reading it.

Stay tuned for updates on what’s next for The Robert Stone Brand.

Trump Nominates Amy Coney Barrett to Replace RBG on the Supreme Court

Published

By

On Saturday, Donald Trump formally nominated Amy Coney Barrett to take the place of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the Supreme Court.

Barrett is a conservative 7th Circuit appeals judge from Indiana who has been a federal judge for three years. Early in her career she also served on George W. Bush’s legal team in the Bush v. Gore decision that handed the presidency to Bush despite his popular vote loss in 2000.

In his announcement Saturday, Trump described Barrett as a “towering intellect” who had “unyielding loyalty to the Constitution.”

Her nomination goes directly against Ginsburg’s dying wish, according to her granddaughter, who said Ginsburg, just days before her death last Friday at the age of 87, said: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

The move also comes in stark contrast to Republicans’ successful efforts to block the appointment of President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, to the Supreme Court ahead of the 2016 presidential election after the death of late Supreme Courty Justice Antonin Scalia.

At the time, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had said, “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president” — a statement that now goes against Senate Republicans’ efforts to secure Trump’s Supreme Court nominee within a month of the election.

Other leading contenders for the nomination included Kate Todd, the White House’s deputy counsel; Barbara Lagoa, a federal appeals judge from Florida; and Allison Rushing, a federal judge from North Carolina.

The Best TV Shows & Movies Coming to HBO Max in October 2020

Published

The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are falling: spooky season is soon upon us. October brings the fall, and with it, a new batch of TV shows and movies coming to HBO Max.

Here are the best TV shows and movies coming to HBO Max in October 2020.

Galaxy Quest TV show

Galaxy Quest

The best Star Trek movie that isn’t actually Star TrekGalaxy Quest is both a spoof of pop culture fandom and a loving homage to it. A rollicking adventure in which the cast of a 1970s-era sci-fi TV show — with standout performances by an eye-rolling late Alan Rickman and a hilariously panicked Sam Rockwell (this should’ve won him the Oscar) — get kidnapped by aliens who believe they piloted an actual spaceship, Galaxy Quest is fun, nerdy, and never nasty.

the matrix 4 production

The Matrix

All three Matrix films left Netflix in June, but fans looking to catch up on the trilogy before The Matrix 4 comes out didn’t have to wait too long for the films to return to a streaming service. There’s no understating how much influential this movie is — from its Hong Kong action-cinema influences, to the cyberpunk anime phenomenon, to the stupid “red pill” memes. The Matrix lives up to that legacy (red pill aside) and more.

Seven

Se7en

“What’s in the box?!” David Fincher‘s 1995 American neo-noir film has a famously dark ending and a grim signature style that would cement the director as one of today’s great working auteurs. What is in the box? Watch the movie and find out.

Jordan Peele's Us Super Bowl Trailer

Us

Jordan Peele’s bone-chilling follow-up film to his breakout debut Get Out is audacious and a little unwieldy, but there’s no denying the cultural impact that Us had whenit came out in 2019. Lupita Nyong’o is a force to behold as Adelaide, a mother of a perfect family who gets attacked by a family of doppelgangers, including Adelaide’s wide-eyed and gasping Tether. Watch this and get angry at Nyong’o’s Oscar snub all over again.

When Harry Met Sally

When Harry Met Sally

It’s sweater weather, which means it’s time to pop in the king of cozy fall movies, When Harry Met Sally. Rob Reiner and Nora Ephron’s rom-com never really answers its core question — can men and women really be friends? — but it sure does have a fun time figuring it out. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan have a sparkling chemistry, and New York City has never looked so beautiful in thisall-time romantic-comedy classic .
