According to latest reports, 2 time WWE Hall of Famer & 16 time World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair is rumored to make a return to WWE Programming on this Monday’s WWE Raw.
He would likely be there for the Dusty Rhodes special which will air on the WWE Network after Raw goes off the air. It is being said that Cody Rhodes will address his father’s death during that segment.
Ric Flair noted on his podcast that he has no longterm wrestling related injuries and had the following to say: “I don’t have any health issues. Everybody else has hips and knees. I had to go to Pittsburgh for a physical because they wanted me to do some in-ring stuff. I go there to see the heart specialist. They tested me for four hours. The doctos said ‘there’s something wrong with you, has to be,’ and I said ‘yeah, it’s called an hour Broadway every night brother.’ The guy looked at me and said that I was a medical miracle.”
During the WWE Beast In The East Live Event earlier today, there was some speculation that Kofi Kingston was injured after taking a suplex from Brock Lesnar during their match. But word is that Kofi is not injured. Some reports suggest that WWE held tryouts in Tokyo today and top New Japan Pro Wrestling stars Shinsuke Nakamura and Kazuchika Okada were amongst the tryout participants.
Naomi was supposed to be a part of the WWE Divas Title Triple Threat match at the WWE Beast In The East event but was replaced by Tamina Snuka. A fan asked her on twitter about the reason for her absence & here’s what she replied: “@SlayQueen128 family and I are dealing with a loss…I’m happy to have my girl @TaminaSnuka representing I know she’s kicking a** literally”.
