One of the more interesting revelations that was made during the podcast interview that Kurt Angle did with Ric Flair was the fact the latter was the one that convinced the former to avoid signing a contract with WCW. Flair had several issues with the front office, so he advised Angle to sign with WWE instead.

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.

Another legend has decided to get into the podcast interview game. Ric Flair will soon make his debut as the host of his own show. Since he is long considered as one of the best of all time, his discussions should be interesting enough to draw in the audience. Flair is on good terms with WWE, so he more than likely will be able to convince management to let him interview the current roster. The title of show will be Woo Nation.

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.

A couple of legends from Japan were in consideration for a hall of fame induction at Wrestlemania this year. WWE opted to go with Tatsumi Fujinami because of his connection with Ric Flair. Rumors have it that some in the front office wanted to wait on inducting Masahiro Chono. They feel that it would be best to include him in the same class as when they induct Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash again. Chono was an nWo member.

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.
