    (CNN) The Reddit user who initially claimed credit for President Donald Trump's tweet that showed Trump tackling CNN issued an apology Tuesday for the video and other offensive content he posted -- one day after CNN identified the man behind the account and attempted to make contact with him. Reddit user "HanA**holeSolo" first shared the GIF last Wednesday of Trump pummeling a wrestler with CNN's logo imposed on his face. CNN could find no earlier instance of the GIF. The GIF was later edited into a video with sound and tweeted by the President on Sunday. On Reddit, "HanA**holeSolo" took...

    The first article of impeachment against president Donald J. Trump -- if the Democrats regain the U.S. House majority -- will be that his behavior demeans the office of the President. Set aside for a moment that for Dem loons just electing Trump irreparably tarnished the stature of the office. But now, the Dems have Exhibit A to the impeachment article: Trump’s image-shopped WWE parody of himself “body-slamming” CNN, perhaps the most accomplished, and persistent purveyor of fake news. Unlike Bill Clinton -- whose pants around the ankles in the Oval Office, while being serviced by an intern, redefined dignity...

    Every elected official in this country was vetted by those in their jurisdictions, the people voted for them, and they know who's representing them. Who asked the public if they regarded Brian Stelter enough of a "reliable source" to be on CNN reviewing anything? Were any of us consulted when a pouty, irritatingly nasal-voiced Brooke Baldwin was going to be an afternoon option? Anyone get a heads up we were going to have to endure a Chris Cuomo or Anderson Cooper and were we ever offered a choice between them and someone who just may have actually been qualified for...
  • Jim Acosta’s response to the CNN tweet by POTUS was too easy for Donald Trump Jr.

    In the moments following President Trump’s WWE-style tweet about CNN, Jim Acosta, the CNN reporter who has been one of the network’s main antagonists toward the Trump administration, rhetorically asked if pro wrestling was fake. "Isn't pro wrestling fake? " — Jim Acosta (@Acosta) July 2, 2017 Not the best idea. Immediately, the word fake was used by Donald Trump Jr. and others to hammer his network. "Yes, just like your coverage. " — Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) July 2, 2017 And the floodgates opened. "Just like the news on CNN… " — Stefan Molyneux (@StefanMolyneux) July 2, 2017...

    "Beloved former WWE commentator Jim Ross broke the news of his wife’s death on Twitter Wednesday night, two days after a horrific road accident critically damaged her brain and skull. She was 55. “A Priest gave my wife Jan her last rites tonight,” Ross wrote on Twitter. “My little Angel is gone.” The WWE Hall of Famer had been posting updates and prayers on his Twitter page since Monday night, when Jan was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Jan was riding her Vespa home from their local Oklahoma gym when a vehicle hit her from behind, according to...

    All throughout the event, in which Bill Goldberg won the WWE Universal Championship from opponent Kevin Owens, a sign held by one of the fans close to the ring that read “CNN is fake news” was prominently featured in several camera shots. . . . But this sign was not taken from the fan, to the chagrin of many fans of the cable news network on social media.

    Jimmy Snuka, the WWE Hall of Famer, has died after losing his battle to stomach cancer. Jimmy wrestled from the 1970s onward ... all the way through 2010. Jimmy came into the WWE as a heel, and became famous for his acrobatic wrestling style. He eventually turned and became a good guy. He had a number of shots at the WWE championship -- both as a villain and hero -- but never won. The Fijian wrestler, also known as Superfly Snuka, would often punish his opponents with his signature move -- the Superfly Splash ... which was an epic body...

    Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, the high-flying Fijian-born professional wrestler who rose to fame alongside icons Hulk Hogan, "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Andre the Giant in Vince McMahon's WWE (then the WWF), is dead at the age of 73. His death comes less than a month after murder charges were dropped in the 1983 death of his then-girlfriend Nancy Argentino. WWE superstar and Snuka's daughter Tamina Snuka announced her father's death on Instagram.

    Ric Flair has a New Year's message to the world: deadlift this. The WWElegend is 67 but on Wednesday posted a video to Twitter that shows him deadlifting 400 pounds with the accompanying words: "I.Will.Never.Retire." After finishing the impressive feat of strength, Flair gives more of a "whoa!" than a solid"woo!", his trademark. Still, the video drew a range of responses from fellow wrestlers, past and present, as well thousands of others. Of course, the "Nature Boy" is never one to miss an opportunity. Hours after the video went viral, Flair was pitching merch from his online store.
  • Trump chooses pro wrestling magnate Linda McMahon to head the Small Business Administration

    U.S. President-elect Donald Trump plans to nominate professional wrestling magnate and former Senate candidate Linda McMahon as his choice to head the Small Business Administration, transition officials told Reuters on Wednesday. The announcement was expected later on Wednesday. McMahon, 68, is a co-founder and former CEO of the professional wrestling franchise WWE, which is based in Stamford, Connecticut. She ran unsuccessfully for a U.S. Senate seat in Connecticut in 2010. She was an early supporter of Trump's presidential campaign. The SBA, which has at least one office in every U.S. state, provides support to small businesses such as extending loans...
  • John Cena Is A Total Hypocrite And Owes Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson An Apology

    Latino Review ^ | 11/29/116 | Mario Robles
    <p>It amused me to no end when the feud between John Cena and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson got real personal a few years ago. While much of it was obviously scripted, like everything else in the WWE, there was definite tension and real-life animosity there. One of the central sticking points of the feud, which seemed to come directly from Cena's true feelings, was that Johnson had betrayed the WWE and its fans by crossing over into Hollywood and leaving them behind. Cena would constantly say he'd never leave and that the WWE Universe was his life. And yet look at Cena now...The wrestler, and longtime focal point of Vince McMahon's promotion, has been slipping away an awful lot these last few years in order to film other non-wrestling projects.</p>
  • Sources: Linda McMahon Considered for Secretary of Commerce

    NBC Connecticut ^ | 5 hours ago
    Sources close to Linda McMahon and President-elect Trump's transition team confirm the former Senate candidate is one name under consideration to become Secretary of Commerce in the new Trump administration. There has been much speculation over who Trump will chose for his administration since the election. Trump announced his transition team on Friday. That team will not necessarily carry over into the Trump administration — though members of past transition teams often have. Instead, they are in charge of putting together hiring recommendations, working with outgoing appointees and laying the groundwork for administration's opening months. McMahon, a former World Wrestling...

    MIDDLEFIELD, Conn. -- It is nearly 11 p.m. on a late-August evening, and we're up in the sanctuary at Victory Christian Church. The congregation that once filled the church is gone, and just four of us remain: a publicist, the pastor, myself, and the subject of the interview. I prop my camera up with a few books and DVDs that went unsold. We do a check for audio levels, and then it happens. The quiet, humble man I had met only hours earlier unleashed it. He belted out that loud, diabolical laugh that only one man could deliver. It was...

    Police found Brian Knighton’s unresponsive body in a Linthicum, Md., McDonald’s bathroom Professional wrestler Axl Rotten — real name Brian Knighton — died earlier this month from a heroin overdose, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore told TheWrap on Wednesday. Police had suspected heroin use, due to the discovery of a “brownish” substance in an unmarked pill bottle found alongside Knighton’s unconscious and unresponsive body in a Linthicum, Md., McDonald’s bathroom. Additionally, Knighton had placed drug paraphernalia and a broken burnt tablespoon with a “crystalline residue” on the restroom’s infant changing table. Knighton was pronounced dead at...
  • Report: WWE suspends Titus O'Neil 90 days for grabbing Vince McMahon

    Don't cross the boss. That seems to be the message WWE principal owner Vince McMahon is sending to his roster in a bizarre decision about one of its superstars. McMahon has reportedly suspended Titus O'Neil for 90 days because O'Neil playfully grabbed McMahon's arm while he was walking backstage after Daniel Bryan's retirement ceremony on this week's "Monday Night Raw." The punishment seems stranger considering 1) the incident did not take place during the live broadcast on the USA Network and was only seen by those tuning into the WWE Network after the show, and 2) O'Neill does more charity...

    We are sad to report that former WWF star "Iron" Mike Sharpe passed away over the weekend in Hamilton, Ontario. Sharpe, 64, was said to have been found in his apartment. We are told that he had been dealing with a number of health issues in recent years. Sharpe, a second generation talent, was best known for his long run with the World Wrestling Federation in the 1980s, where he was billed as "Canada's Greatest Athlete" and was a recurring performer for the company, losing TV and undercard matches on live events. Working heel, Sharpe consistently wore a leather band...
