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. When your father is one of the greatest performers that the industry has ever seen, those are rather large shoes to fill. Flair understands that, so he doesn't give her a lot of advice because he does not want to interfere with what the WWE trainers are teaching his daughter.

Now that he is the top champion, WWE has come to a decision on how they want to utilize Seth Rollins. He is going to be portraying a cowardly heel who does whatever it takes to hold on to his belt. The move should come as no surprise because Triple H has always been a big fan of Ric Flair. That is the guideline that he and the creative department will be using. The goal is to get fans to root for the faces that are challenging for the belt.

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.

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.

A lot of fans are hoping that WWE brings back Ric Flair as a permanent on screen character. If they decide to do that, then they will not have him for a week in May. The former world heavyweight champion has been booked for one man shows all across Europe. Flair will be entertaining audiences in Scotland, Newcastle, Leeds, Leicester, Portsmouth, London and Derby. Further dates could be added by his agent from now and then.
