Sheamus reveals how a visit to Edge’s home sparked the best run of his 20-year career ahead of Survivor Series

A near career-ending concussion and a willingness to open up have led Sheamus to what many consider his best WWE run. Sheamus has already carved out a Hall of Fame career. Oddly, it is the version of Sheamus with 20 years of experience, one in pursuit of a secondary title, that has connected with WWE fans the most.Sheamus headlines WWE Survivor Series on Saturday, teaming with the Brawling Brutes (Butch and Ridge Holland), Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens to take on The Bloodline (Roman Reigns, The Usos, Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa) in a WarGames match. Sheamus' status at the top of the card is partially a reflection of his renewed passion for the art."I love what I do. I'm still very passionate about what I do," Sheamus --...

Patriots playoff outlook: Postseason path realistic for New England, but offensive struggles could be costly

The 2022 campaign hasn't exactly been a walk in the park for the New England Patriots. After last season, Bill Belichick's club did appear to be on the ascent after finding its franchise quarterback in Mac Jones, who was already able to help bring his team to the postseason in Year 1. If Jones enjoyed anything close to a sophomore surge like a solid contingent of players do, the Pats rebuild was going to see a jumpstart and were going to be circled as a threat in the division and -- on a larger scale -- the conference. Fast-forward roughly a year and things have gone a bit haywire. As the dust settles on Week 13, the Patriots find themselves sitting at 6-6 and are currently on the outside looking in on the postseason....

How Mia Yim went from contemplating retirement after WWE release to a marquee match at Survivor Series

Mia Yim hit the ground running when returning to WWE in November. In less than 30 days, Yim has aligned with The O.C. in their ongoing feud with Judgement Day and linked up with Raw women's champion Bianca Belair for Survivor Series WarGames.It is a complete reversal of fortunes for Yim who, one year prior, was released by WWE. Yim had a promising run on the NXT developmental brand before graduating to the main roster as Reckoning in the terribly maligned Retribution stable. The group was an immediate dud, due in great part to a lack of direction and a silly presentation. Yim and her husband, current AEW star Keith Lee, were handed their walking papers on Nov. 4, 2021, as part of a larger round of releases."When I ori...

Tyson Fury vs. Derek Chisora fight prediction, odds, start time, preview, undercard, expert picks

To say Tyson Fury has had a strange year would be an understatement. While it isn't against the opponent anyone expected, Fury will return to the ring one more time before the year comes to an end. Fury will defend his WBC heavyweight title against Derek Chisora in a trilogy bout on Saturday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London (ESPN+, 1 p.m. ET). Fury's year started reasonably enough, facing off with longtime mandatory contender Dillian Whyte in April. As expected, Fury made easy work of Whyte. What was not expected was Fury's announcement in the ring that he was retiring from boxing. That announcement kicked off a months-long stretch of Fury alternating between insisting he was actually retired and calling out fig...

Regis Prograis vs. Jose Zepeda fight results, highlights: ‘Rougarou’ batters, TKOs opponent for title

For years, Regis Prograis has been searching for any opportunity to get back to the quality of fights he felt he deserved as one of the world's elite fighters. Prograis' opportunity came on Saturday night and he made the best of it, knocking out Jose Zepeda in the 11th round to capture the vacant WBC junior welterweight championship.The early rounds saw both fighters focus on working off the jab, trying to figure out timing and distance. Zepeda got the best of things in the first round, but Prograis appeared to figure out Zepeda midway through the second as he found success with hard left-hand counters from his southpaw stance and put some extra steam on his lightning-quick jab.A notoriously gutsy fighter, Zepeda cont...
