RIC FLAIR’S FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE ANNOUNCED

Wrestling legend Ric Flair only underwent heart surgery on Monday, yet already his first public appearance has been announced. Ric was supposed to have the surgery on Friday of last week, this was delayed due to undisclosed complications.

Ric has been announced as attending SCWPro’s show on the 31st of May. The company is running its first show at the Rust Belt in Illinois.

SCWPro has reported that they have been in constant contact with Ric’s representatives, and have had the booking confirmed.

The company is still selling and advertising a ‘Ric Flair VIP Package’, which includes a meet and greet, photo op, and two personal items signed.

AEW RELEASE PAC VS. PAGE MATCH

AEW has released the PAC vs. Hangman Page match from Wrestle Gate Pro on Saturday. This comes on the heels of creative differences forcing the removal of the PAC vs. Page match scheduled for this weekend’s Double or Nothing event, taking place in Las Vegas. During last Saturday’s match Page won via DQ, with PAC then beating him down after the bell. Following the beatdown, PAC informed Page that he wouldn’t be attending Double or Nothing.

Almost in way of response, WWE also released a free-to-view match on YouTube. The match in question happens to be the NXT North American Title Ladder Match from last year’s TakeOver: New Orleans. This is only one of the very few matches to receive a 5* rating from Dave Meltzer and is rated as one of the best ladder matches of all time.

REY MYSTERIO INJURY CONFIRMED

During last night’s episode of RAW Rey Mysterio’s shoulder injury was confirmed. The injury happened the night before in his match with Samoa Joe. WWE confirmed that Rey’s shoulder had become separated during their match.

For a 5 minute match, it was incredibly action-packed, including Joe’s nose becoming broken and Joe taking the pin when his shoulder was clearly up.

The feud clearly isn’t over, with Joe cutting a promo on Rey during the show.
