When Hulk Hogan was forced to vacate his position as a judge on Tough Enough, fans excitedly speculated on which legend was going to be replacing him.

He is a great talker, so he should be able to handle the job just fine.

A lot of wrestling fans are under the assumption that Ric Flair helped to train Charlotte to become a professional wrestler. Apparently, that is not the case.

Unless things become chaotic backstage, it appears that Charlotte is more than likely going to make her main roster debut on the episode of Monday Night Raw on the night following Wrestlemania. Ric Flair is supposed to be in attendance during the entire weekend, so that would make it quite convenient for the front office to have him appearing on television to introduce his daughter to fans who do not generally keep up with NXT.

One of the lesser discussed induction into the WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania is Tatsumi Fujinami. A part of that is because his brief stint in WCW took place well before a lot of the current fans were born. The legend from Japan definitely deserves the honor, and his induction should be an entertaining one since Ric Flair will be involved. The two of them had an entertaining feud over the heavyweight championship at one point in time.

Those that watched the latest episode of Monday Night Raw heard Sting finally speak since joining WWE. Kind of. The vignette featured a voice that fans were not familiar with. It was actually the voice of Steve Borden, but the production crew altered that because they want to save his real voice for Wrestlemania. The idea was inspired by the Black Scorpion character, the masked performer who ended up being revealed as Ric Flair.
