Rumors were made official Tuesday as WWE signed three of the biggest free agents in professional wrestling — former Ring of Honor/New Japan Pro Wrestling stars War Machine (Hanson and Raymond Rowe) and independent standout Ricochet. Ricochet has been a long-awaited addition to the WWE roster. He's one of the best high-flyers in the world, having taken his exciting style from California to New Japan to Lucha Underground, where he wrestled as Prince Puma.
WWE announced the first member of its 2018 Hall of Fame class Monday, and, unsurprisingly, Bill Goldberg will be the headliner. There was never a doubt about Goldberg entering the Hall of Fame. After last year's run, during which Goldberg won the WWE Universal title, he is a natural fit for this year's class. In WWE, Goldberg is a former Universal champ as well as a World Heavyweight champion. However, it was what he did in WCW that puts him in this Hall of Fame.
The past few weeks of RAW have felt like a big breath-hold as we approached the draft. Finally, the biggest piece of the puzzle fell into place as Vince McMahon returned and announced who would run RAW and Smackdown. While WWE tried to create mystery over the past few weeks, most wrestling fans realized exactly where the brand split was going. So it came to nobody's surprise when Vince officially announced that Shane would be taking over Smackdown, while Stephanie will run RAW.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
