SMITHS LEGEND MORRISSEY BACK WITH NEW SOLO ALBUM AND HOLLYWOOD BOWL SHOW: HOW TO SCORE PRESALE TICKETS

English singer Steven Patrick Morrissey is better known by his stage name “Morrissey,” and he shot to fame as the singer with 1980’s alternative band The Smiths. Morrissey captured the attention of a worldwide audience, but The Smiths music resonated most strongly with those in his native Manchester. Morrissey’s lyrics reflected the lives of working class youth in England and his dry, acerbic wit, and his political views hit out at the establishment and at Margaret Thatcher’s brand of politics. With songs like “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now” Morrissey’s lyrics were downbeat and hard-hitting, a theme that continued into his solo work after The Smiths broke up in 1987.

WHY JOHN CENA VS. JINDER MAHAL SIGNALS A NEW AGE ON WWE ‘SMACKDOWN LIVE’

WWE superstar John Cena returns to the ring in tonight’s WWE SmackDown Live, and the signs are that Cena is ushering in a new age on the WWE network. As any wrestling fan knows, Cena’s movie and television commitments have limited his appearances on SmackDown over the past couple of years. Cena returned to the ring at the 2017 Royal Rumble, where a fantastic match with AJ Styles saw him equal Ric Flair’s record of 16 championship titles.

SAMOA JOE TURNS BROCK LESNAR A STRANGE SHADE OF PURPLE ON WWE ‘MONDAY NIGHT RAW’

At last, Brock Lesnar is back on the WWE network. Lesnar has been out of competition, since he beat Goldberg, to win the WWE Universal Championship, at WrestleMania 33. Once WrestleMania was over, Lesnar slipped into another hiatus, and as previously reported in the Inquisitr, he has not competed since. Lesnar’s absence from Monday Night Raw, has doubtless hurt the WWE’s viewing figures, so his return, on last night’s show, is certainly welcome.

WWE SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan, has been off-air for the past couple of months. As reported by The Heavy, Bryan took a sabbatical, because he and his wife, Brie Bella, have just welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Birdie Joe Danielson. During Bryan’s absence from SmackDown Live, the shows viewing figures have been tumbling, and many think that the blue team got the rough end of the WWE “superstar shakeup.” The ongoing absence of WWE superstar John Cena, who hasn’t performed since WrestleMania 33, may be a factor, but the fans are just not buying into some of SmackDown’s recent storyline developments.

JINDER MAHAL ACCUSES WWE UNIVERSE OF RACISM AFTER BEATING RANDY ORTON AT ‘MONEY IN THE BANK’

Last night saw Indo-Canadian WWE star Jinder Mahal retain his WWE Championship crown by beating Randy Orton on his home turf. During the SmackDown exclusive Money In The Bank PPV, Mahal pinned Orton to retain the championship, albeit with a little help from his friends, the Singh Brothers. Mahal’s latest victory continues his push on the WWE network. Mahal is triumphing over all-comers at the moment, as the WWE network continues to raise his profile, particularly on the Indian sub-continent.

As previously reported in the Inquisitr, The Maharajah struggled to make any impact during his previous stint with the WWE. Mahal returned to the independent wrestling circuit after being cut from the WWE roster in 2014 but returned to the WWE in 2016. When Mahal returned, defeats to Neville and Sami Zayn hardly suggested that he was on his way to champion status, but all that changed once WrestleMania 33 was over.

London, one of Europe’s great cities, is in the midst of the sort of crisis not seen since the 7/7 bombings in 2005.

In that attack, unarmed police officer Keith Palmer was stabbed to death. Masood was shot by police officers.

As reported in the Guardian, the terrorists attacked passersby with knives before making their way to the nearby Borough Market area, where they were shot by armed police officers.

Rock Band Urges Calm After Grenfell Tower Survivors Storm Kensington Town Hall In London

As reported earlier today in the Inquisitr, tensions have been running high in London as a result of the Grenfell Tower fire, which has killed at least 30 people. The Metropolitan Police announced that over 70 people are still missing, and said that it is unlikely that there will be any more survivors.

Residents of Grenfell Tower are increasingly angry at Theresa May’s government, and the company who managed the building. It has been feared that a protest march in London this evening could spark civil unrest, and even riots, but it appears that protesters have stormed Kensington Town Hall, demanding justice for the Grenfell Tower residents. The Independent says that hundreds of protesters are carrying a list of demands that they say the authorities must meet.
