WWE fans, happy Wednesday!
We’d like to welcome you to today’s effort at something resembling a round-up. If there’s credible event news, we have it, if there’s breaking injury news, we have it, if there’s… you get the point.
Watch the video above to see yours truly hand you the headlines on a silver platter, or read on below if you’re that way inclined.
Ric Flair admits to tears
This week’s Monday Night RAW ended somewhat controversially, what with Paige bringing up the subject of Charlotte’s late brother, Reid.
As expected, Ric Flair - Reid’s father - has opened up on the matter, and he’s confirmed that he wasn’t consulted about the angle the organisation chose to include.
The WWE legend was hesitant to say much because he thought it might harm Charlotte’s prospects, but conceded he had cried when watching himself.
"You know, here's the problem: I obviously have an opinion but I'm afraid to voice it. Because I don't want anything to affect Ashley's career. I would just say that I know that Hunter, and Stephanie, and Michael Hayes have her back," Flair said.
"I never heard a word about it. I started crying while I was watching it. Nope, nobody called me and nobody has called me today. That would indicate that they just assumed that that's good. So I don't have an answer for that," he went on to say
Mysterio open to return
Elsewhere, Rey Mysterio has confirmed he’s open to returning to the WWE on a part-time basis.
The former superstar was quoted as having said ‘Never say never’, but admitted he was happy and pleased with how things are at the moment.
Elimination match added to Survivor Series
And, lastly, a traditional elimination match has been announced on the upcoming WWE Survivor Series bill for this Sunday.
We couldn't help but include this:
Not only will Dolph Ziggler supposedly be taking on the green Tyler Breeze, but a five-on-five elimination match will also be occurring. There’s been one of those every year since the show’s inception in 1987.
