Eddie Murphy May Return To Stand-Up With $70 Million Netflix Deal

Don’t call it a comeback!

Eddie Murphy is reportedly in talks with Netflix to grace the stage for the first time in decades. The streaming service is reportedly offering the legendary comedian somewhere in the ballpark of $70 million to perform a stand-up special or two. While Murphy isn’t exactly hurting for money, it’s hard for anyone to turn down that kind of dough. An event like this could be exactly what the notorious funnyman needs to accelerate his upcoming return to Hollywood, too.

The 58-year-old was once the most hilarious man in the world. His comedy specials Raw and Delirious are often heralded as some of the funniest stand-ups of all-time. Murphy’s film career was just as iconic as well, headlined by movies like Coming to America, Trading Places, The Nutty Professor, Dr. Doolittle, Norbit, Daddy Day Care, Dreamgirls, the Shrek franchise and more.

Brock Lesnar is Universal Champion once again, so this show should address who will challenge him for the title at Summerslam. Okay, here we go.

Match #1: Ricochet and The Usos def. Robert Roode and The Revival – 2 Out Of 3 Falls Six Man Tag Match The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Ricochet might have lost the United States Championship to Aj Styles last night, but The Club aren’t quite done with the former champion. Looking to add insult to injury for the young Superstar, Styles, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson ambushed Ricochet at the conclusion of a 2-out-of-3 Falls Six-Man Tag Team Match in which Ricochet & The Usos teamed up to defeat The Revival & Robert Roode.

WWE Raw – July 8th 2019: Results & Review

  • Nerdly
Welcome to this week’s Raw review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have the second week where Paul Heyman is booking (kind of). Also, my friend told me that Pat Patterson’s boys club is up and running again and Mae Young’s hand has been hired to wrestle at Summerslam against Mark Henry in a Rock, Paper, Scissors Match. I’ve got a pretty weird friend. Any-way, I hope this episode is good, because Extreme Rules needs some great build before it debuts on the WWE Network.

‘WWE Main Event’ Review (July 4th 2019)

  • Nerdly
So, I’m gonna be reviewing WWE Main Event as it airs in the UK on Thursday nights. I’m not even sure, these days, what day this show airs elsewhere.

Match #1: Dana Brooke vs. Sarah Logan

This week’s show began immediately with Dana Brooke heading to the ring to a decent applause from the crowd. Dana is someone I see improvement in every time I see her. She hasn’t had too many opportunities since heading to the main roster from Nxt, so it’s cool to see her given a shot on Main Event and Raw to show her improvements to the world. The cut above her eye is shown that she suffered in a Main Event match a couple of weeks ago against Sarah Logan. Logan is her opponent tonight too, and she heads to the ring and howls like a wolf. Logan is someone

WWE Smackdown Live – July 2nd 2019: Results & Review

  • Nerdly
Welcome to this week’s Smackdown Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have more from Vince McMahon and…Eric Bischoff? That’s a lame way to bring this up. Eric Bischoff has been (legitimately) hired to run Smackdown within a few weeks. This is certainly a new development worth keeping an eye on. Also, Paul Heyman is now (eventually) running Raw. Okay, let’s see how the build toward Extreme Rules goes on this episode of Smackdown.

Match #1: Daniel Bryan def. Big E The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

With The New Day eyeing Daniel Bryan & Rowan’s SmackDown Tag Team Titles at WWE Extreme Rules, Big E and Daniel Bryan squared off in one-on-one action on the blue brand. With Xavier Woods and Rowan at ringside, Big E suplexed The Beard around the squared circle at ease, though Bryan fired back with his signature punishing kicks.

Welcome to this week’s Monday Night Raw review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and Paul Heyman is now in charge of Raw…eventually. I’m not kidding. If you haven’t been paying attention the last few days, then it’s time for you to hear the news that Paul Heyman has been hired to run Raw and Eric Bischoff has been hired to run Smackdown. Yeah, welcome to the next chapter in a very wild year. From what I understand, Paul is not completely in charge of Raw, but will get that power over time.

Is The Undertaker Ever Going to Hang it Up?

Did you watch this week’s Monday Night Raw? I watched Raw. In fact it seems as though a lot of people might have watched this week’s Raw. If you did then you saw that the Deadman, the Undertaker, doesn’t look like he’s quite done yet. In fact it looked as though he’s Anything but done as he came into the ring and decimated both Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre in the same old fashion he’s done to so many, brutal and to the point. Sure he didn’t perform a Tombstone pile driver or go Old School on the top rope,

WWE Hires Paul Heyman and Eric BIschoff to Run TV

Mike McMahon Jun 27, 2019

Heyman is the new executive director of Raw while Bischoff joins the company as the head of SmackDown Live ...

They say two thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time. So, starting next week, we're going to watch wrestling like it's 1999.

Maybe Prince was onto something ...

WWE announced on Thursday that it had hired Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff in executive roles, tabbing Heyman as the executive director of Raw and Bischoff as the executive director of SmackDown.

According to PWInsider, which is one of many outlets reporting on this story, Heyman and Bischoff will oversee every aspect of their television series and will report directly to Vince McMahon.

"They are the top of the pyramid," PWInsider's Mike Johnson wrote.

For wrestling fans over 30 years old, this will bring back memories of the Monday Night Wars, when McMahon ran WWE, Bischoff ran WCW and Heyman ran

WWE Smackdown Live – June 25th 2019: Results & Review

Welcome to this week’s Smackdown Live review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and I believe I missed another Bray Wyatt vignette last night. Apparently, Vince McMahon appeared on the segment as a puppet with devil-horns. I bet that old pervert liked that…or thought he was looking in a mirror. Okay, let’s review this bad boy before Seth Rollins finds out I’m going to criticize his employer. Seth Rollins…just another winner accosting people on his way up the ladder of success, just so he’ll get a better prize when he reaches the top. Anyway, it’s Smackdown time.

Opinionated: The Raw and SmackDown Slump

  • Nerdly
It’s indisputable that WWE put out an incredibly vast amount of content. Just in a week, and not mentioning their social media content or original WWE Network programming, we see Raw, SmackDown, Nxt, Nxt UK, 205 Live and more. We get at least one, sometimes more than one, PPV or Special each month too. That’s A Lot of content. That’s a lot of wrestling.

Now, I love some of what WWE put out. I am a big fan of Nxt and Nxt UK. I love watching 205 Live. I tune in to every show and hope to see something special, something exciting, something entertaining. It doesn’t always happen, and in fact… recently, when it comes to the main shows of Raw and SmackDown, it feels a bit on the stale side, a touch too same-old, and lacking the spark that we, as fans, know WWE are capable of creating.

Seth Rollins Says It Was ‘a Little Presumptuous’ for Dean Ambrose to ‘Talk Down’ About WWE (Audio)

Seth Rollins Says It Was ‘a Little Presumptuous’ for Dean Ambrose to ‘Talk Down’ About WWE (Audio)
Yes, Seth Rollins heard that “Talk Is Jericho” podcast with Jon Moxley — aka Dean Ambrose — and Vince McMahon’s current Universal Champion found the former Shield member’s complaining about his years in WWE to be “a little presumptuous.”

“I think it’s a little presumptuous of him to get on a podcast and talk down about the company that gave him such opportunities,” Rollins told “Si Media Podcast” host Jimmy Traina on Monday ahead of USA Network’s “Raw.”

The podcast was published on Tuesday.

“I don’t think there’s any reason to — again — hop on a soapbox and complain after the fact,” Rollins added. “You need to take the first step and that’s looking in the mirror and asking yourself, did you do every single thing you possibly could to make yourself and your situation what you want it to be.”

Are WWE Writers Trolling Vince McMahon?

Mike McMahon Jun 19, 2019

The Firefly Funhouse has some odd innuendo, according to one former WWE wrestler ...

It's often said that WWE writers are writing Raw and SmackDown for an audience of one: Vince McMahon. Vince approves or disapproves of all storylines, verbiage, etc.

Well, one former WWE wrestler believes that WWE writers are making fun of Vince McMahon right under his nose, and on his own show, and maybe the old man has no idea it's happening.

Lance Storm made his regular appearance on Figure Four Daily with host Bryan Alvarez this past weekend and said that it resonated with him that many of the references in Bray Wyatt's "Firefly Funhouse" segments could be interpreted as direct shots at the WWE and its chairman.

“I’ve watched a couple and I’m like ‘Oh my God.'” Storm said, “Correct me if I’m wrong [but] aren’t the writers making
