SmackDown Live Names Talk About Getting Kicked Out Of WWE Show 10 Years Ago

During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho podcast, The Singh Brothers (Sunil & Samir) recalled getting kicked out of a WWE show about 10 years ago. Below is the story:

“We were trying to get booked, get noticed, this is 10 years ago, so long-story-short, we’re sending our stuff, ‘no’ is the answer we’re getting, so we’re like, ‘you know what? Screw it.

We’re going to buy a plane ticket, and fly to Toronto’ and we flew to Toronto not booked for the Monday Night Raw TV show as extras. So we got told, ‘hey, you’re not supposed to be here.

You have to leave the building.’ And on our way out, that’s when we bumped into you (Jericho) at catering.”

“I don’t take anything for granted anymore” – Ric Flair

During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, 2 time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair talked about his recent health scare. Below is what “The Nature Boy” said:

“I had ten days of life support, brother, that would wake anybody up. I’m just lucky I’m here, I just kind of take each day, I don’t take anything for granted anymore. They gave me a 20 percent chance of living and somehow I made it through it.

When I got out I only weighed 206 pounds, I lost 43 pounds. I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t even twist the top off a Gatorade bottle. I could stand on my legs, but I couldn’t walk, so I had to go to a rehab place for 20 days of physical rehab where they make you walk with a walker and then a cane and then you learn to walk by yourself.

That took a while, and then I couldn’t drive a car. I ate anything in the world, but couldn’t gain any weight because all the food I was consuming was going towards repairing internal tissue that was ruined because when I went into the hospital my kidneys failed, I had respiratory heart failure and I had pneumonia all at the same time.

Brother, I don’t drink anymore… The doctor told me if I ever had a drink again, I wouldn’t make it through another operation like that.

I’m back, I feel good, I weigh 220 now. Everything is normal, I have to go to the doctor every other week.

As far as lifting weights and stuff like that, nothing for probably another month. It’s just a different way of life, I’m not used to living like this and I’m certainly not used to not having a drink by three o’clock (laughs).

When I wasn’t working I used to start at 11 in the morning, are you kidding me?”
