Once again, it’s Survivor Series time! The Thanksgiving tradition is upon us and we were already treated to a near perfect NXT Takeover: War Games. There really wasn’t one weak match on the card. But what stole the show was the surprising performance by Velveteen Dream. I was a fan of Dream for a while just judging by the gimmick alone, but it turns out he can hit it out of the park in the ring, too; while wearing Rick Rude-style pants no less!
The biggest wrestling news of this past week is easily Chris Jericho’s surprise challenge to New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Kenny Omega following their Power Struggle event. In a shocking turn of events, Jericho has seemingly bypassed WWE and decided to have a high profile match in the Tokyo Dome at the upcoming Wrestle Kingdom against Omega, who Jericho considers to be the best in-ring performer in the world. The premise of this match is simple.
Last week on Raw, the locker room was under siege at the hands of the Smackdown roster. Finally, we are actually getting a brand battle for Survivor Series. This is really the only way to handle the Smackdown vs. Raw premise. The occasional contest to decide which is the better show only makes sense if we’re really to believe they’re in competition with each other. But as much as I enjoy a good “invasion” angle, we’re still lacking anything resembling a motive.
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".
