• “I don’t understand what they do with anybody” – Ric Flair On WWE’s SummerSlam Booking
During a recent appearance on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair said that he doesn’t understand the storylines in WWE.
Here’s what the 2-time WWE Hall of Famer had to say about Becky Lynch defeating Bianca Belair in 27 seconds at SummerSlam 2021:
“I didn’t like it. Sometimes I don’t understand what they do with anybody, Ashley (Charlotte Flair) included. But I didn’t like [Becky Lynch squashing Bianca Belair] at all.
I thought Bianca had worked so hard. She’s really a nice person, I like her husband, they seem very close. There’s a lot of things that make her pretty unique. I actually was hoping that someday, and I thought it could be Bianca and Charlotte, they could really be huge.
Obviously the two best athletes in the women’s division. I mean, both Division One athletes legitimately. And that’s a whole different way of telling a story leading up to an event.
Plus the fact that they can do stuff that nobody else can.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (September 2, 1985) – Old School NWA Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 1985, we lost Old School NWA Veteran Jay Youngblood (Real name: Steven Romero) at the young age of 30 due to kidney failure, followed by a series of heart attacks.
He wrestled for various territories, but is most famous for teaming up with Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat in Jim Crockett Promotions during the early 80s.
Their biggest moment as a team came at a big televised special event called ‘NWA Final Conflict’ on March 12, 1983 in Greensboro, North Carolina, when they defeated the team of Sgt. Slaughter & Don Kernodle in a Steel Cage match to become the new NWA World Tag Team Champions.
