No More Wrestling Content on Vortex Effect

WWE Logo

We started this site in April 2011 and the very first post was a wrestling post. The site was intended to be largely a wrestling site with a focus also on gaming and movie reviews; very much a hybrid mashing of our different interests. Overtime, the site has shifted more and more towards video games and the wrestling took a back seat, mostly. The initial audience we had for wrestling stuff left, seemingly not caring about all the gaming stuff that was dominating (can't say I blame them). Likewise, not too many of our current readership cares about the wrestling content. So, while Vortex Effect remains a hybrid site of gaming and movies, and even sports occasionally, there will be no more wrestling content here (unless its about a video game). Why are sports allowed and wrestling has to … [Read more...]

John Cena Is The WWE 2K15 Cover Superstar

WWE 2K15

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon revealed the cover of WWE 2K15 tonight on RAW, and as many of us figured it is new WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. WWE 2K15 hits stores on October 28th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: That's not a surprise, but I don't have much of a problem with it. It has been a few years since Cena last appeared on the cover anyway. The cover itself looks pretty good; I like it better than last year's. I wouldn't be surprised to see WWE and 2K run another contest allowing fans to make their own covers with the winning cover being printed on the reverse of the actual cover. That's just a guess though. Now 2K, please don't make us wait until Summer Slam to start seeing anything about this game that is releasing in OCTOBER. A screen shot … [Read more...]

WWE 2K15 Cover To Be Revealed LIVE Tonight on RAW

WWE 2K15

WWE and 2K has announced that the cover for WWE 2K15 will be be revealed light tonight on RAW by Stephanie McMahon. RAW airs at 7pm CT on USA Network. https://twitter.com/StephMcMahon/status/483731717367558145 https://twitter.com/WWEgames/status/483731937308053504 WWE 2K15 hits stores on October 28th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: I'm not even going to venture a guess, but nonetheless I'm hyped for the game this year. Also worth noting that the previous two years the cover has been revealed on RAW, and on that same night a trailer has debuted. If that historical trend continues, we should see our first look at the game tonight. … [Read more...]

WWE RAW 5/5/14 Preview: Extreme Rules Aftermath

RAW Feature Image

Last night, WWE delivered a pretty good event on WWE Network and pay-per-view. Extreme Rules was, in my opinion, highlighted by a great and wild six-man tag match between The Shield and Evolution that saw The Shield come out victorious. Tonight, RAW will kick off with a 20-man over the top rope battle royal for Dean Ambrose's United States Championship. This match was announced by Triple H on Twitter as being "best for business," so Triple H is through with The Shield just yet. Also tonight, it's the debut of Adam Rose. I know some folks are looking forward to that. I haven't been a fan of the gimmick thus far in NXT, and I don't think it'll go over well on the main roster, but I'm hoping for the best. Gimmick aside, Adam Rose is pretty good. That's all that's been announced for … [Read more...]

Bray Wyatt Has the Whole World In His Hands, Watch RAW’s Awesome & Creepy Opening Segment

RAW Feature Image

Tonight's RAW started off with what I'd consider one of the best opening segments in years. Last week, the WWE Universe voted John Cena to face all three members of the Wyatt Family. Tonight, John Cena started the show off inside a steel cage asking the WWE Universe "why?" and telling them they don't understand Bray Wyatt. Cena was interrupted by a singing of "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands" from a children's choir. The children, which is John Cena's fanbase, sung along with Bray Wyatt and donned sheep mask, much to the horror of John Cena. It was a creepy and totally awesome way to start the show, and if you didn't see it then I highly recommend that you watch it below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CR6yVUxXnyA John Cena and Bray Wyatt will meet in a Steel Cage match this … [Read more...]

Ric Flair Returns to RAW Tonight

RAW Feature Image

The legendary Nature Boy Ric Flair, a two-time WWE Hall of Famer, will return to RAW tonight in Saint Louis, MO. Triple H, Flair's long time friend, announced the news on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TripleH/status/460814056811532288 Smith's Sentiment: It makes sense that Flair would be brought in given the reformation of Evolution. Now the question is, will Flair be with his former teammates, or will they assault Flair for the heel heat leading to a Shield save? Hopefully Flair is firmly aligned with Evolution, even though the fans certainly won't want to boo him at this point. … [Read more...]

RAW Feature Image

Tonight, WWE presents Monday Night RAW LIVE from the Scottrade Center in Saint Louis, MO. Tonight's show is the "go home" episode giving the final RAW push to this Sunday's Extreme Rules special event (or pay-per-view if you prefer). Tonight, actor Hugh Jackman returns to WWE television to promote X-Men: Days of Future Past. More important stuff happens tonight as well. We'll find out who'll be facing Big E for the Intercontinental Championship at Extreme Rules, as Bad News Barrett meets Rob Van Dam in the #1 contender's tournament finals. The Uso's will also put their tag team championship on the line tonight against Ryback and Curtis Axel. WWE is promising that tonight Stephanie McMahon will personally apologize to Daniel Bryan for the actions of Kane last week. Speaking of last … [Read more...]

WWE RAW 4/21/14 Preview – Daniel Bryan Returns

RAW Feature Image

Tonight on RAW, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan returns after missing last week's episode due to being on his honeymoon with Brie Bella. Last week, Stephanie McMahon awoke the "Devil's Favorite Demon," as Kane will once again don the mask and become the "monster." Kane has promised to eviscerate Daniel Bryan and send him to the depths of hell. Two matches are known for tonight's episode as the #1 Contender to the Intercontinental Championship tournament continues tonight with the semifinals. Rob Van Dam will take on the newest Paul Heyman Guy, Cesaro aka "the King of Swing." The other semifinal match will see Sheamus battle Bad News Barrett. Last week, RAW ended on quite a downer as The Shield was decimated by the Authority... or Evolution. Triple H sent out 11 … [Read more...]

WWE RAW 4/14/14 Preview: Ultimate Warrior Tribute

RAW Feature Image

WWE is coming off of one of its hottest weeks in quite sometime, and unfortunately it was a couple of days that culminated with the tragic passing of the Ultimate Warrior. Tonight, WWE will pay tribute to The Ultimate Warrior, who just one week ago today appeared on RAW for the first time in almost 20 years. RAW concluded last week in fantastic fashion with The Shield taking out Triple H, Randy Orton, Batista, and Kane to prevent Triple H from screwing Daniel Bryan out of the WWE Championship. You know Triple H will have something to say after being speared by Roman Reigns and taking a Running Knee from Daniel Bryan last week. Triple H was adamant that he didn't want to start a war with The Shield, but The Shield certainly had no problems firing the first shots. Last week, Cesaro … [Read more...]
