The game studio behind the hit Batman: Arkham The series returns, this time pitting two of DC’s most famous teams against each other in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. And that’s not the only related game coming soon. Gotham Knights is set to release even earlier this year from WB Montreal, which is responsible for the Origins of Arkham payment of the deductible.

With not one, but two new DC-centric games on the horizon, it’s a good time to look back on the groundbreaking series that reinvigorated the gaming genre. The Batman-centric Arkham series not only made the genre superhero game a viable option in the future, but also a popular option. They were able to use its amazing source material and capture the very essence of their characters, but some did it better than others.

6 Origins of Arkham: Blackgate

A screenshot from the Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate video game.

the Origins of Arkham The linking game for the 3DS and PlayStation Vita was a first for the series of games moving away from consoles, which wasted a lot of time in translation. The side-scrolling handheld was fine but didn’t add anything noteworthy or significant to the Arkham series.

It didn’t offer players any new revelations about the overarching storyline with repetitive villains and storylines during the 10-hour campaign. But the game had well-animated cutscenes and the combat was the same fun that fans of the series enjoy. Origins of Arkham: Blackgate isn’t a total loss but far from a must-play, putting it last in the series.

5 Arkham RV

Batman Arkham VR

Using new technology and game media, the main attraction of Arkham RV is the idea of ​​becoming the hero fans have idolized for over 80 years. Arkham RV primarily relies on the player’s fascination with living out their deepest Batman fantasies in a fun open-world experience and embodying the larger-than-life icon.

RELATED: Suicide Squad Kill The Justice League ⁠— 8 Redditors Arkham Villains Would Love To See

In this aspect, it largely succeeds in giving fans that much sought-after perspective, but does little in terms of actual gameplay. And cool concept and new technology can only get this game so far. This installment of the franchise isn’t much of a game, with only around 90 minutes of runtime and minimal gameplay mechanics, it fails to land in the same ballpark as some of the others.

4 Origins of Arkham

Batman Arkham Origins Deathstroke Boss Fight

Origins of Arkham was a deviation from the rest of the series as it was developed by WB Games Montreal and not Rocksteady like the other installments. And the change of developers was not the only thing to change. A different battlesuit, different voice actors, and different overall styles were proof that change isn’t always good.

Unfortunately, the game failed to capture the magic of others with clunky gameplay and a rather underwhelming plot. But not all of the changes were bad. The game still did a lot well though, with a fun campaign, decent story, and fresh concepts. Unlike all other games, Origins of Arkham included a new online multiplayer mode that gave the episode an extra boost to its lifespan and value. With sufficient fan support, a Origins of Arkham remaster could be a worthwhile undertaking.

The game that started it all arkham asylum launched a new Batman franchise that was fresh, engaging, and fun. It was one of, if not the first game where the player felt like the iconic Dark Knight. All aspects of the game capture the feel of the Batman character.

RELATED: 10 Batman Characters Who Never Appeared In The Arkham Games

The combat was powerful, the stealth missions were well-crafted, and the detective work was smart, all adding to the feeling that the player was the vigilante. Held back only by the game’s anti-climactic ending, Arkham Asylum The conclusion left gamers feeling aggrieved after investing around 10-12 hours in it. Still, this game has become the new gold standard of the genre.

2 Arkham Knight

Batman in front of the Batsignal above Gotham

The conclusion of Rocksteady’s Batman series, Arkham Knight was a triumph for Batman fans everywhere. The game retained what worked well in previous games while introducing a few new features, a new armored bat suit, and the inclusion of the Batmobile.

The world was extremely well designed, allowing Batman to glide or traverse Gotham City with ease and fun. Arkham Knight ongoing interesting side quests that seemed to have satisfying payoffs (except for Hush) and character interactions all felt personal and meaningful. But unfortunately the Batmobile, while a fun concept, does hold back the gameplay by forcing it into the mix a bit too much. The tank warfare missions of taking out military drones deviated a bit too much from the personal feel of being Batman that previous games were able to capture so well.

1 Arkham City

The Joker Revealing His Titan Affliction in Batman: Arkham City

The sequel to 2011, Arkham City, improved on the first in all the right ways. The graphics were better, the world was bigger, and the story was richer. Like its predecessor, this game felt like the player was immersed in the seminal world of Batman, but this time with more freedom and more ground to cover.

One of the most impressive aspects of this game was the scale. It may not look impressive now but at the time of release, Arkham City had one of the greatest open-world environments games ever seen. But the larger scale has not simply been relegated to the map. The story was much more ambitious with several more tangents and side quests for the player along with some cool new combat techniques. This game had everything Caped Crusader fans could ask for without being cluttered, making it the best on the list.

THE CONVERSATION

This article originally appeared on The Conversation, an independent, nonprofit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts. Disclosure information is available on the original site.

Author: Richard Budgell, Assistant Professor, Family Medicine; Ph.D. student, history and classical studies, McGill University

One of the reasons I moved to Quebec in 2015 was the mix of languages ​​that many Quebecers, especially in Montreal, live and work in. Some are able to switch languages ​​from sentence to sentence; others will change in mid-sentence or speak in an ever-changing mix of languages.

Content of the article

The language dance most often takes place between French and English, but other languages ​​may be involved, such as native and immigrant languages.

The reality of multilingualism goes back a long way in Quebec: the perceived founder of French Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, even knew “a handful of 1/8 Indigenous languages3/8, not enough to talk directly about sensitive issues. Most of his communications had to go through interpreters. However, the mythical view of historical dominance held by some Quebecers is that “the French language 1/8…3/8 now established itself in Quebec with Samuel de Champlain in 1608” or, the French language was officially established in Quebec with Samuel de Champlain in 1608.

Content of the article

As the leader of a small, vulnerable French outpost, Champlain probably thought more about making alliances with native nations, which would allow French settlers to survive, than about official languages.

Indigenous nations and languages ​​have endured – as have the descendants of early French settlers (including me), joined by British settlers and a mix of immigrants from around the world, to create a diverse and complex society.

And all of this helps explain why Bill 96 is so problematic. The proposed bill, “An Act respecting French, the official and common language of Quebec”, will reduce accessibility to health services in English. This will have a drastic and negative impact on indigenous peoples. As an Inuit health researcher and educator, I find this deeply troubling.

Indigenous experience in Quebec

Part of the complexity of Quebec is ensuring fairness for all its citizens. For Indigenous people in the province, fair treatment may seem fleeting.

In the health care system, systemic discrimination against Aboriginal people has been officially recognized. In 2019, the Quebec-mandated Viens Commission concluded that “it is clear that prejudice against Indigenous peoples remains prevalent in the interaction between caregivers and patients” and recommended that “cultural safeguard principles” be integrated into health services and programs for Aboriginal peoples.

In October 2021, Coroner Gehane Kamel’s main recommendation in her report on the death of Joyce Echaquan was that the province must recognize the existence of systemic racism and take concrete action to eliminate it.

Content of the article

Receiving health care in a language one speaks is obviously a dimension of cultural safety. It is therefore all the more disappointing that a recently published plan to reform the Quebec health care system ignores systemic discrimination and the cultural safety of patients.

The Problem with Law 96

In an analysis of Bill 96, Montreal lawyer and lawyer Eric Maldoff states:

“Even when staff and establishments have the possibility of using another language, Law 96 strongly enjoins them to avoid exercising it and specifies that a language other than French must not be used systematically, for example by setting up translation services. It is possible to use a language other than French for reasons of health, public safety and natural justice. However, it appears to be aimed at dealing with an individual’s health emergency.

Content of the article

The Inuit of Nunavik in northern Quebec have for years identified challenges within the health care system. A report prepared by the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services states: “Many 1/8Inuit3/8 do not understand medical terms and the translation is sometimes inefficient, as many terms have no equivalent in Inuktitut . As a result, many people find it difficult to understand their health issues and follow medical advice.

Ninety-eight percent of Nunavik Inuit speak Inuktitut as their first language. This should be celebrated, not hindered, during the Decade of Indigenous Languages, which Canada supports. Bill 96 will create greater barriers to access to health care for Inuit and First Nations. The bill will make health and health care worse, not better.

Content of the article

Multilingualism should not be a threat

Bill 96 will also create new education challenges for Inuit and First Nations who use English.

Indigenous students will now need to take three additional French courses to receive a CEGEP diploma (usually required for university admission). In practice, most Inuit students and about half of First Nations students have been educated primarily in English and will struggle to meet additional French requirements.

Quebec Premier François Legault recently defended draft Bill 96 saying: “If Quebec is bilingual, unfortunately North America’s attraction to English will be so strong that it will be a matter of time before we no longer speak French in Quebec and we become Louisiana.”

Content of the article

Shooting in Louisiana is a bogeyman commonly deployed in Quebec, to imply that without restrictive measures on the use of other languages, French is on the way to extinction.

For most residents of Quebec, there is a broad consensus that French must be protected. But many of us believe that multilingualism — including Indigenous languages ​​— should not threaten French.

“We believe we can provide a great showcase for the city of Montreal locally, nationally and internationally,” said Cirque President and CEO, Stéphane Lefebvre.

Tourisme Montréal and Cirque du Soleil have signed an agreement for the tourist organization to pay Cirque $250,000 a year to help promote Montréal. It’s a two-year deal with an option for a third party, and both sides have suggested it could easily last much longer.

The Montreal circus has entered into a 10-year agreement with the Old Port to present a new Cirque du Soleil show each year under its big top just east of the Jacques-Cartier pier. The first show under this deal is Kooza, which opens May 12.

“We believe we can provide a great showcase for the city of Montreal at the local, national and international levels,” said Cirque CEO Stéphane Lefebvre during a press conference under the marquee on Wednesday.

“Cirque du Soleil produces shows in approximately 450 cities around the world and everywhere we go, the Cirque du Soleil show is a major tourist attraction,” Lefebvre said.

He said that a Cirque show in Quebec has an economic impact of approximately $45 million.

In exchange for payment, Tourisme Montreal may have promotional material under the Cirque tents for shows in Canada, and this could expand to include shows in the United States and other countries.

“We are paying for the integration of the brands together within the marquee,” said Tourisme Montreal CEO Yves Lalumière, adding that the agency will have “access to their fanbase, which is huge. They have a customer loyalty program. They have a newsletter. Having the opportunity to tap into this clientele for us is certainly very interesting.

“When you associate yourself with a winner, you will reap the benefits. Also, making sure people understand that Cirque du Soleil is a Montreal trademark. It’s an ambassador for Montreal. I think it there are so many benefits to having the two brands integrated together.

Lefebvre said money isn’t the most important aspect of the deal.

“The visibility we can give to Tourisme Montréal means a lot to us,” said the Cirque CEO. “Tourisme Montréal also has an interesting platform to provide visibility to Cirque and raise awareness of Cirque du Soleil shows and brand in different parts of the world.

“Quite frankly, we have sponsorship deals that are worth more than (this deal). The financial part hasn’t been the main driver for us. You could see two bodies whose missions could well complement each other and bring people back to Montreal, contribute to the revival of the cultural and artistic sectors here.

Lalumiere said he expects tourism to rebound significantly this year in Montreal.

“It was very catastrophic for the industry,” he said of the pandemic. “Right now we have a lot of conferences, so the numbers now show that we’re looking at 70% occupancy (in hotels in Montreal), where two years ago there were 20, and last year it was around 40% in our biggest month. So that’s a big increase, and honestly, it’s beyond our expectations. The intention of French and American travelers is stronger than we thought. It looks good.

Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang and the end of the road for the Penguins Big 3 https://wpfgmontreal2017.com/sidney-crosby-evgeni-malkin-kris-letang-and-the-end-of-the-road-for-the-penguins-big-3/ Mon, 02 May 2022 23:33:27 +0000 https://wpfgmontreal2017.com/sidney-crosby-evgeni-malkin-kris-letang-and-the-end-of-the-road-for-the-penguins-big-3/ It was a great day in Anaheim four months ago and the Penguins had just finished practice at Honda Center.

It was a great day in Anaheim four months ago and the Penguins had just finished practice at Honda Center. Outside on a sunny California afternoon stood Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang. They quietly studied their phones while standing together next to the team bus, considering dinner plans, looking more like aristocrats than hockey players.

Of course, they are hockey royalty. Penguin royalty, in particular. Three Stanley Cups, 3,605 combined points and 15 years of memories speak for themselves.

Fifteen years, however, is a very long time for a hockey royal to remain. These three can dine together as much as they want in the future, but how many dinners are left with the trio dressed in black and gold?

There’s a very real chance that Crosby, Malkin and Letang will play their final playoffs together starting Tuesday at Madison Square Garden in a showdown with the Rangers. The Big Three are not at all interested in discussing the future, even though all three are very aware of the reality.

“You just try to enjoy it as much as you can,” Crosby said. “Because you know it’s not something that’s going to last forever.”

Crosby still has three years left on his contract. His longtime teammates Malkin and Letang are set to become unrestricted free agents this summer.

General manager Ron Hextall has discussed a new contract with representatives of Malkin and Letang and, although the conversations were cordial, a deal is not reached with either player. In two months, Malkin and Letang will be free to sign elsewhere if no agreement is reached with Hextall.

Representatives for Malkin have told the Penguins the future Hall of Famer is ready to play for less than the $9.5 million he’s earned annually for most of the past decade. In January, Malkin even joked, “I’m a really rich guy,” explaining that he doesn’t need a great deal to return to Pittsburgh.

He also remains a point-per-game player and box office attraction who doesn’t wish to be underestimated.

Letang, meanwhile, just set a career high with 68 points in the 2021-22 season. The current NHL landscape pays defensemen more lucrative salaries than ever before. Especially right-handed defenders. Especially gifted defenders offensively. What makes things even more daunting for the Penguins is that Kent Hughes, Letang’s longtime agent, is now the general manager of the Montreal Canadiens. Letang is from Montreal and is very proud of his French heritage. At 35, his performance remains at a high level and he is not interested in a pay cut.

“We’ll see,” Brian Burke, president of hockey operations for the Penguins, said recently. Athleticism. “We had discussions. We have made progress. But we are in no rush. »

It’s been a different season for the three Penguins stars.

  • Crosby’s season has been one of frustration followed by brilliance. He missed the start of the season while recovering from wrist surgery. He then looked completely out of sorts upon his return, only to miss more games after facing a nasty bout of COVID-19. He had just three points in his first eight games, leading some to wonder if Crosby might not be at the start of a big downturn. Then, in the blink of an eye towards the end of November, he was Crosby again and played at MVP level for the rest of the season.
  • Malkin made his season debut on that trip to Anaheim, and his season has been a microcosm of the good and bad characteristics that make him unique. He’s scored 20 goals in 41 games, putting him on a 40-goal pace, which is quite exceptional for a 35-year-old with less than a year of ACL surgery. Malkin was also the team’s worst under 10 and struggled at even strength at times. At the time of his return, Malkin was more jovial and comfortable with the media than ever before. He has also not spoken to the media since his native Russia invaded Ukraine, and those close to him confirm that the ongoing war has had a significant mental impact on him.
  • Letang had one of his best seasons. In the first three months of the season, he operated at performances close to Norris Trophy level. He had a bit of a lull later in the season, but Letang’s campaign never went off the rails and he played very well down the line. Away from the ice, there was something more refined, more mature about Letang this season. Starting in training camp, he spoke with a wisdom that was not always present in his early years, when pride and impulsiveness often dictated his overall personality. Maybe he grew up. Maybe he’s on his best behavior because it’s a contract year. Or maybe Letang wants his senior year in Pittsburgh to be peaceful. He alone knows.

With Crosby, Malkin and Letang under contract, the Penguins have won 20 playoff series in the past 15 years. They were the NHL’s winningest regular season and playoff team during that streak.

They also lost four consecutive series, starting in 2018 when the Capitals finally killed their arch-nemesis while ending the Penguins’ three-round attempt.

Once known for their youth, explosive talent and precociousness, the Penguins are the old men of this postseason. Crosby, Malkin and Letang are now regularly asked about things like “playoff experience,” which is a more polite way of asking a player if they’re too old to win another championship.

“The playoffs are a different animal,” Letang said. “The intensity is much higher.”

The Big Three would know. The Penguins did not make the playoffs in Crosby’s rookie season. Then came Malkin and Letang, and they haven’t missed the playoffs since.

Typically the Penguins are the favorites, but not anymore. Not after losing four straight series. And not after the slumber they were in for the last month of the regular season.

Playing the scorching Rangers in the first round makes things even trickier.

Three teams – the Rangers, Islanders and Canadiens – knocked the Penguins out of the playoffs twice during the Big Three era. Rangers may become the first team to beat them three times in a series and possibly the team that ends an era.

“People have been talking about it for three years,” Letang said of the possibility of him or Malkin — or both — moving on after this season. “We all know that. We don’t have to discuss it. We know what it is.

There’s a hint of resignation in Letang’s tone, as if he might know something that everyone else doesn’t.

“We have to erase everything we’ve done against them (Rangers) all year and show our true selves,” he said. “I’ve been here a long time. When you have that hard core, you have confidence in what you can deliver. If we are underdogs, fine. It’s OK. I trust the guys around me.

Trust is built over time, and these three have been together for half their respective lives.

“We just see it as an opportunity to consolidate what we’ve done throughout our careers in Pittsburgh,” Letang said. “Maintaining it. That’s our priority. That’s what we’re talking about. Winning another one.

The puck will drop at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the world’s most famous arena, which would be a fitting stage for the end of an era, or another chapter of brilliance in the glory days of Penguins hockey.

“They’re really good,” Letang said. “I think we do too. We want to prove that we still belong in the dance.

Even if it’s the last.

The salvation of the public health system will go through private enterprise, according to the Conservative Party of Quebec (PCQ).

To improve health care for Quebecers, party leader Éric Duhaime says he would promote competition between the private and public sectors and foreign private investment.

According to the QCP, the contribution of private companies should be at the heart of the reform of the health system – and if these companies make a profit, so much the better.

Without direct competition between the public network and the private company, “everything will fail”, declared Dr. Karim Elayoubi, main health spokesperson for the QCP and candidate in Argenteuil.

“We want foreign investors to use their financial capital, their smart capital, to come here” and build private hospitals and clinics, he said.

He said competition must become the government’s “central tool” to “attract investors” who will eventually not only want to build hospitals, but also run them.

Elayoubi spoke in Quebec at a Saturday symposium organized by the QCP.

According to him, the QCP proposal does not contradict the principles enshrined in the Canada Health Act, in particular those related to universality. A legal challenge would therefore seem “unlikely”, he pleads.

The changes proposed by the party would lead the public health network to organize itself and become more efficient, having “no other choice but to adapt to its competitor”.

The Conservatives want Quebecers to be able to take out private insurance (known as a “duplicate”) for the services and care already offered by the Régie de l’assurance maladie (RAMQ).

For example, a patient waiting for surgery with private insurance might choose to be treated at a private clinic if the wait for public services is too long.

In principle, part of the bill would be covered by the insurance company. Tax credits could possibly be made available.

But this raises the question of accessibility: not everyone could afford private insurance. People who are doubly insured could therefore have an advantage over the others.

The PCQ argues that this private insurance would be accessible to middle-income groups and help free up waiting lists for public services.

According to Elayoubi, who denounced the “pseudo-universality” of the existing network, the current system is “elitist” because at the moment only the rich have access to private clinics.

To make the system work, the Conservatives are counting on a series of major changes, such as allowing doctors to switch from public practice to private practice overnight, which is currently prohibited.

The PCQ also wants to significantly increase the number of doctors in the province, aiming to train 300 to 500 more medical students each year.

The Conservatives also promise to review the method of funding hospitals, an idea launched by other parties for years; the more patients a hospital treats, the more funding it will receive.

Saturday’s conference drew a few hundred activists, both onsite and virtual. Other speakers include Maria Lily Shaw, economist at the Montreal Economic Institute, Norma Khozhaya, vice-president of research and chief economist at the Conseil du patronat du Québec, as well as Michel Kelly-Gagnon, general manager of the Montreal Economic Institute, and curator essayist Joanne Marcotte.

The PCQ is on the rise, according to the latest polls. Party leader Éric Duhaime made a brief appearance at the end of the conference to say that health is likely to be the central issue of the next election campaign.

Montreal cop pushes homeless man into concrete in video; forcible investigation https://wpfgmontreal2017.com/montreal-cop-pushes-homeless-man-into-concrete-in-video-forcible-investigation/ Fri, 29 Apr 2022 20:42:00 +0000 https://wpfgmontreal2017.com/montreal-cop-pushes-homeless-man-into-concrete-in-video-forcible-investigation/ A Montreal police officer will respond to the force’s “integrity” department after he was filmed violently pushing an unarmed homeless man face down into a concrete block.

A Montreal police officer will respond to the force’s “integrity” department after he was filmed violently pushing an unarmed homeless man face down into a concrete block.

The video, which was taken in Chinatown on Thursday, shows a relatively young man standing up after hitting the block headfirst, only to have the officer shove him again.

“I think it was a matter of centimeters,” the man who shot the video told CTV News.

“He could have split his skull, broken his neck.”

After the man stood up, clearly disoriented, “the cop didn’t even go to see if he was okay…he just picked him up and pushed him away,” said the man, who didn’t want his name. published for fear of reprisals by the police.

The 17-second video, which he posted on TikTok, already had around 50,000 views a day later and had caught the attention of not only Montreal police, but also those who work with people living in the streets of Montreal.

“This person seemed harmless, didn’t seem aggressive at all, from what I saw,” said James Hughes, CEO of the Old Brewery Mission, a nearby men’s shelter.

“And so what I witnessed in the video was totally unjustifiable,” he said. “We are going to talk to the police about it ourselves.”

Montreal police (SPVM) said in a statement on Friday that they were “well aware of the video that is currently circulating on social media” and that they were investigating the incident.

They followed shortly after to say that the police had officially opened an internal investigation, which will be handled by the SPVM’s “Integrity and Professional Standards Department”.

Two officers were present in the video, but it is unclear if both are under investigation.

FIRST HEAD INJURY NOT CAPTURED ON CAMERA

The man who filmed it, however, says both officers were involved and the whole episode was even more disturbing than the 17-second clip.

He only turned on his camera after seeing another officer – the second who appears in the video – inflict a different type of head injury on the man, he said.

At the time he shot the video, the man was visiting a friend in a building across the street from a “half-abandoned” neighborhood between Clark and Saint-Urbain streets, just north of René-Lévesque Boulevard, where people living on the streets congregate, he said. He looked out the second story window to see the scene unfold.

“There was…a hut that the guy had made. It was two pallets with another one on top and a tarp. It was a little house type thing,” he said, who tend to be rebuilt in the same place consistently.

By the time the police approached, the homeless man was sitting in it with a blanket hanging down like a door. He pulled the blanket aside to talk to the officers, then one of the officers suddenly knocked the bench top off balance on top.

“He pulled it out and the top board fell on the head of the guy who was in the pen,” the man said.

“The guy touches his head, looks at his hand to see if there’s blood, so it must have hit him pretty hard,” he said. “That’s when I started filming.”

The man, looking stunned, appears on the video to argue with the officer or complain about what happened.

It is then that “the other [officer] came…looked like he didn’t know the guy just got hit with a plank,” the passerby said.

“That’s when he decided to hustle him.”

Later, after the man staggered down the street, “the cop pulled out his billy bat and started chasing him,” the man – also not captured on video – said.

THE ‘EXACT OPPOSITE’ OF HOMELESSNESS POLICE TRAINING

The Old Brewery Mission regularly holds training for rookie officers and teaches them to do “the exact opposite” of this stuff, Hughes said – and it does so with the support of SPVM leadership, he said. declared.

“Most of the time they’re left alone…they’re on their own,” Hughes said.

Homelessness is increasing in Montreal, and police also generally leave temporary structures alone, he said.

Young officers learn to approach as a possible source of support, asking if the person needs help and if they are in “distress” of any kind, to get an ambulance or put them in touch with health care, Hughes said.

“There are up to 1,000 people sleeping on the streets of Montreal every night. And the police department has improved so much over the years…that seeing this incident of violence against an individual sleeping in the street, on the street, it’s really, really disappointing and very sad,” he said.

“Actually, what seems like an aggressive dismantling of where someone is staying and then aggressively pushing them out of the way, as we’ve seen, and the guy almost had his head hit that concrete block, does that leave me scratching my head, like what was going on?”

The man who shot the video said he felt the people currently using this corner of Saint-Urbain were being encouraged to “get out” of their old haunt, a little further north in the Village, and more recently have started gathering in Chinatown.

But aside from the horrors, he said he had rarely seen more serious problems there.

“Most addicts you talk to are nice people. They’re just struggling with something,” he said. “You see them doing crazy things, but as long as they don’t attack ordinary people, I don’t understand why they bother people.”

We’re back with another stacked edition of Sportskeeda’s Daily WWE News Roundup, and it’s been quite a busy day in the professional wrestling world.

We kicked off the story series with two AEW stars reacting to recent reports of interest within Vince McMahon’s company to get them back. Elsewhere, a Hall of Famer has revealed details of a heated argument ahead of one of the best WrestleMania matches of all time.

Randy Orton also opened up about his in-ring future following the end of his 20th anniversary in WWE.

Could a legendary superstar slip into the role of ‘The Undertaker’ in WWE? Booker T has named a former world champion who could replace The Deadman in the promotion.

We ended the roundup with another former star revealing his intentions to make a comeback. Without further ado, let’s dive in.


#5. Dax Harwood reacts to rumors of WWE interest in signing FTR

Formerly known as The Revival in WWE, FTR is said to be on WWE’s radar regarding a potential return.

Dax Harwood recently reacted to the rumors on the Wrestling Perspective podcast and didn’t rule out the possibility of doing business with WWE again. He explained that both AEW and WWE prioritize talent acquisition.

The AEW star was aware that WWE officials would be watching FTR’s incredible progress over the past ten months. Harwood wasn’t surprised that WWE was “sending antennas” to bring them back into its fold.

“I think both companies are looking to recruit talent and recruit talented talent, not just any, and I think they’ve seen the wave we’ve created, especially over the last 8-10 months. , more so in the last 4 months. So yeah, why didn’t they pull out the antennas? Why didn’t they ask?” said Dax Harwood.

FTR have been one of the best tag teams in the world since their WWE days, but they have undoubtedly taken their game to a whole new level since their release. Could Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler get another shot at success in World Wrestling Entertainment?


#4. Bully Ray Reveals Tag Teams Argued Before Match At WrestleMania 17

WrestleMania 17 is fondly remembered for a memorable TLC match between The Dudley Boyz, The Hardy Boyz and Edge & Christian.

During a recent appearance on Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, Bully Ray revealed that the teams involved in the WrestleMania match had a major disagreement before the event.

The Hall of Fame said the atmosphere was “tense” backstage ahead of the game as every minor point was discussed and disputed backstage.

Bully Ray said the superstars faced a few challenges when putting together the final sequence for the match, as he explained below:

“So the night before, we were all in the Astrodome, and we were trying to put this thing together. And it’s kind of tense because we’re such a perfectionist at this point that we put everything under a microscope, every last movement, especially myself. It was the only time we had a fight. It got really heated on the day of the final mogul streak. (H/T WrestlingInc)

Bully Ray also talked about Jeff Hardy’s jaw-dropping ladder spot with Edge and how they worked hard to find a way to make it happen. The latest Hall of Fame reveals are yet another example of how meticulously planning every professional wrestling bout.


#3. Booker T thinks Stone Cold Steve Austin can take the place of The Undertaker

Stone Cold Steve Austin took fans on a nostalgic trip to WrestleMania 38 as he had his first full-fledged match in nearly 19 years.

Steve Austin looked great in his “No Holds Barred” showdown against Kevin Owens as he brawled in the arena and emerged victorious in the end. The former even mentioned that he would be willing to return for WrestleMania 39 if Vince McMahon gave him a call.

During a recent episode of the Hall of Fame Podcast, Booker T said that Steve Austin could legitimately replace The Undertaker as WWE’s first special attraction talent.

Booker noted that Triple H, Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker are no longer the go-to guys for certain high-profile spots and felt that Steve Austin was the perfect superstar to take on that responsibility.

“He’s the last one left, man. I mean, I don’t think Shawn Michaels will be the guy to fill that role or anything like that. I can’t think of any names other than myself, and It’s just not something I really want to do at all Bring me a match and a check, and I’m all for it, but when it comes to this guy, I can’t think to too many people outside of Stone Cold Steve Austin who might take it and make it something totally special when you see it on the marquee as the fans go.”

Booker T was convinced that Steve Austin could be WWE’s “three times a year guy”, who shows up on massive live shows and has an angle with young or established talent.

“It’s right there. I have to see it”, just because. No other reason, I just have to see it. guys to go out and do something.”

Would you like to see Steve Austin take the place of The Undertaker?


#2. Santino Marella wants to return as a commentator

Santino Marella is looking forward to returning to his old company.
Santino Marella is looking forward to returning to his old company.

Santino Marella is unquestionably one of the most underrated artists of his time. He excelled in his comedic roles for WWE and was always with the crowd. The former Intercontinental Champion recently revealed on the Canadian Comedy Hall of Fame Podcast that he is working towards a return to WWE.

Marella, as expected, does not wish to return as an active competitor in the ring as he would like to become a commentator.

Santino noted that he had recently advertised jobs for several companies and was hoping to get another full-time job with Vince McMahon’s team.

“I coach wrestling. For years I was on a show called Aftermath on Sports Network. You know, we talked about the week that was WWE. So I’m still very much into it. Now I do mostly commentary. I do commentary for Destiny Wrestling, PTW in Poland, a company in Montreal, MEW. Basically, I’m just trying to get more rep. I’ve done some for IMPACT, and eventually, I want to go in WWE in some capacity as a commentator.”

If you didn’t already know, Santino Marella’s daughter recently signed with WWE. She even sat down for an insightful interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, where she talked about several topics, including her father, Rhea Ripley, the female headliners of WrestleMania, and more.


#1. Randy Orton gives an update on his in-ring future

Randy Orton is now a 20-year WWE veteran, and fans would be foolish to assume he’s nearing the end of his career.

During a special YouTube video, Randy Orton revealed that he plans to wrestle for another eight years before quitting at the age of 50.

“I’m 41 years old [42]; by the time I’m 50, I think I’m done. I do auditions from time to time, but I almost only do them because my wife says, “Do them because what if you don’t, and you’ll wonder if you did.”

Orton also claimed he would even outlast Roman Reigns in WWE. Orton said while he expects the tribal leader to move to Hollywood, The Viper intends to be the longest-staying superstar.

“I don’t care if Roman Reigns…I’m sure he has Dwayne Johnson’s agent number on the speed dial. Roman will be in Hollywood, I’ll always be here. I’m in the prime of life. age, ladies and gentlemen.. I have a long way to go. My legacy will be that I have done it longer than anyone else.

Randy Orton’s legacy is far from over as he seeks to add many more chapters to his storied career. Do you think Randy Orton will have a longer WWE career than Roman Reigns as an active talent? Sound off in the comments section below.


Could Corey Graves join a supernatural faction? A former WWE writer thinks so. Details here.

Trevor Zegras scored his 58th point of the season to pass Bobby Ryan to become the Anaheim Ducks’ all-time leading scorer in Saturday’s 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Zegras scored at 3:34 of the second period on a pass from Ryan Getzlaf, who is playing his final NHL game with the Ducks on Sunday against St. Louis. Getzlaf recorded the 736th assist and 1,108th point of his 17-year career, all at Anaheim.

“It’s pretty cool,” Zegras said in a second-half interview with Bally Sports West’s Aly Lozoff. “I grew up watching Bobby Ryan. Obviously when he was playing for the Ducks he was awesome. I think that’s a pretty cool mark to hit. I was glad he came over from Getzlaf. It was pretty cool. Fun goal.

On December 7, in a nationally televised game on ESPN, Zegras went over the net with an assist to Milan for a goal against Buffalo that went viral and garnered millions of views on the internet. And on January 27, the young center scored his first lacrosse-style goal (aka The Michigan) in a win over Montreal, which drew criticism in some quarters.

Zegras, 21, is a candidate for the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie. He was selected 9th overall by the Ducks in the 2019 NHL Draft.
