World Wrestling Entertainment have announced during their web conference that they will be bringing back the Diva Search. The plan is to do run the Search over a ten week period on WWE programming. No return date has been announced yet
Shawn Michaels wants Ric Flair to attend the Hall of Fame ceremony this year but no word yet if he will be there. The feeling is that WWE will allow Flair to attend but won't put him on screen. The other question is if TNA would allow him to appear. TNA wrestlers have attended WWE's Hall of Fame in the past but the general rule is that they are not allowed to attend.
Regarding the rumors of Kimbo Slice at WrestleMania 27 as The Undertaker's enforcer, reps of Slice's aren't aware of anything like that being planned. A source in WWE who would know about this if it were going on also says there is no interest in WWE bringing Kimbo in.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter , WWE is looking to do a DVD high lighting Hall of Famer Gorgeous George in an attempt to make him relevant, as they are also producing a movie on his life through WWE Studios. WWE wants to market George as the originator of sports entertainment and re-brand him as wrestling's Babe Ruth type of character
According to sources close to Vince McMahon, the current plan for WrestleMania is Undertaker vs Wade Barrett. This is considered locked in baring any injuries as The Undertaker is being advertised for WWE Axxess the night before the event
WWE officials contacted representatives of Duane Chapman (star of Dog the Bounty Hunter on A&E) a few weeks ago regarding a possible appearance at WrestleMania XXVII reports Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter. It is said that both sides were far apart on financial terms.
Several TNA wrestlers are rolling their eyes at the news of Ric Flair coming back to the current UK tour. The decision to bring Flair back on the tour is said to be a financial one. The feeling was that they needed to keep Flair on the tour to maintain good relations with the local promoters and the fans. This is the same reason Matt Hardy was added to the tour after a number of recent changes with Kurt Angle leaving as well as injuries to AJ Styles and Alex Shelley.
Most of the TNA crew was in favor of leaving Flair behind in Dublin earlier this week and aren't happy about him coming back. Several wrestlers spoke up to TNA officials in the past day, pushing for him to be sent him and even released from the company.
On the other hand, a lot of the TNA talents feel sorry for Flair. One TNA wrestler, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Flair has asked several co-workers for money when his credit cards have been declined.
