Roman Reigns Defeats Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar To Advance To WrestleMania Main Event
Roman looked strong last night as he pinned Dean Ambrose in a Triple Threat match with Brock Lesnar to advance to the main event of WrestleMania 32. It is the outcome that we all knew was going to happen, but it didn’t make the match any less entertaining. Ambrose as the scrappy wild card in his home state of Ohio just days after losing the Intercontinental Championship made the WWE at least tease the idea that the company would surprise us.
Come on, guys. You should know better than that by now.
Brock Lesnar did Brock Lesnar things by tossing over a dozen suplexes onto Reigns and Ambrose, but two powerbombs through the announce tables and a barrage of steel chair shots rendered “The Beast” useless when it came to the final decision. As it stands now, Reigns will take on Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 32 in AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
Anthony Davis Did Ungodly Things To Andre Drummond And The Pistons Yesterday
If you’re like me, yesterday had you rubbing your eyes and doing a double take at Anthony Davis’ stat line as he took on the Detroit Pistons Sunday afternoon. Davis poured in 59 points on 24-for-34 shooting and collected 20 rebounds in only 43 minutes of work.
If that kind of stat line sounds rare, that’s because it is. It is the first 50-20 game since Chris Webber did it in 2001, and only the third such game in NBA history. He’s also the youngest player to score 59 or more since 1963. It also wasn’t just done by around-the-rim domination associated with most games with this similar stat line. Davis took fellow All Star Andre Drummond to the woodshed with a variety of step-back jumpers, threes, and yes, dunks.
Watch the absolute destruction in the clip below.
An Oklahoma City Fan Tells LeBron To “Suck It Up,” LeBron Responds With Demolition Of Thunder
NBA microphones are some of the most sensitive in all of sports, so sometimes they catch fantastic moments like what happened yesterday on ESPN. As LeBron James’ Cavaliers took on the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday afternoon, “The King” had a few words with the referee after a questionable call.
An elderly lady sitting courtside exclaimed “Just suck it up, LeBron!” The Internet went wild with the video before the game even ended. Unfortunately for the Thunder, this random woman’s heckling might have been the best defense James saw the entire game.
James sucked it up enough to score 25 points, with 11 assists, seven rebounds, and three steals, leading the Cavs to an easy, 115-92 win. Bron seemed to take the taunt in stride, as he even took to his own Instagram account to give the lady some shine. “I guess she told me!! Hahahaha,” James wrote on his page. “#JustSuckItUpLeBron #NoMomo #Classic.”
