That has led people to speculate about backstage heat between the two. Apparently, that is far from the case, as Ross and Flair get along just fine. The two of them still share a mutual sense of admiration and respect towards one another. Ross does not blame Flair for no longer being with the company.

Instead of continuing to milk one of the best gimmicks in all of professional wrestling, WWE has decided to pull the trigger on the split of the Miz and Damien Sandow. On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, we saw the former firing the latter as his stunt double but keeping him around as his personal assistant.
