- There is a lot of talk in both WWE and TNA that Ric Flair will be back with WWE some time next year. Flair's current TNA contract expires at the end of the year and WWE reportedly wants to use Ric Flair's star power to help push the WWE Network when it launches. Flair is still very popular with wrestling fans of all ages and WWE owns the footage to most of Flair's career, so it's a natural fit.
Flair did an interview for a Charlotte radio station earlier this week where he claimed his last wrestling match was the retirement match against Shawn Michaels. He also spoke highly of Vince McMahon and The Rock and had a great time hanging out with the WWE crew during WrestleMania weekend.
- Following Randy Orton's removal from the upcoming WWE Studios film, The Marine 3, WWE is currently considering CM Punk, John Cena, Cody Rhodes, JTG and Kofi Kingston for the role.
Because the movie is co-promoted with 20th Century Fox, WWE wants a big named star in the movie and the number of performers with Orton's star power is limited. T
The Marine 3 begins filming in June so we should hear something soon.
