Now that he is back on good terms with the company after the incident at Summerslam 2013 that cost Jim Ross his job, Ric Flair is being heavily rumored to join the stacked episode of Monday Night Raw on February 24, the same night that WWE Network launches. He will be needed to help promote WCW and NWA content on the network.
Vince McMahon is a big fan of tradition, and it appears that he has found one that he really likes. During Monday Night Raw, it was announced to the live audience that Summerslam 2014 will be taking place in Los Angeles at the Staples Center. This will mark the sixth consecutive year that the event has been held in the city.
While many people are already aware that Dolph Ziggler is being punished by WWE over the last several months, not many are aware as to the exact reason why. Rumor is that he has backstage heat with Randy Orton over comments he made during an interview around the time of Summerslam.
Batista is scheduled to make his WWE return tonight at Monday Night Raw, and it has now been confirmed that he is indeed backstage at the event. Earlier today, he joked about how he should have returned at Summerslam instead of the Royal Rumble because of the cold weather in Ohio.
Dolph Ziggler needed help from a WWE diva to gain revenge on former on screen girlfriend AJ Lee and best friend Big E Langston, so he enlisted the help of Kaitlyn. Ziggler and Kaitlyn were victorious at the Summerslam pay per view.
In a rather interesting move, Bobby Lashley has decided to make his Instagram account private, which means that fans are not able to see his pictures and updates without following his account. The former WWE and current MMA star made the change recently.
While he is not doing so on a weekly basis like a lot of former WWE stars, Bobby Lashley is still doing some wrestling. The former ECW star, who is still focused on his MMA career, has been booked for a match against Big Daddy V in February in Tennessee.
"I don’t know anything about [Bobby] Lashley. Lashley just looks very synthetic to me. That’s just my opinion and I could be completely wrong, and if I am, I apologize to him and his family. No, I don’t apologize to him and his family. God bless him! (laughs). If he’s clean, Jesus man, you’re absolutely phenomenal, a physical specimen. But you look at him. Lashley, it would be hard to believe a guy with that muscle structure is clean."
