Order for Arrest Issued Against Ric Flair in Ongoing Legal Battle

Credit:PWInsider.com

A judge in North Carolina found Ric Flair in civil contempt of court yesterday and issued an order for his arrest. This comes from Flair not adhering to a mediated Settlement Agreement in the lawsuit against him by Highspots.com.

Flair was required to pay Highspots $35,000 and sign 300 photos as forms of restitution. At a hearing yesterday, the court decreed that Flair had "the assets and income required" to pay the Settlement Agreement but "willfully violated and continues to willfully violate" the court order. The court then ruled that Flair was in "willfull civil contempt of the court" and issued an order for his arrest. The order for Flair's arrest reads like this:

"Therefore it is ordered, adjudged and decreed that Defendant Richard Fliehr is hereby held in civil contempt for his failure to comply with the Consent Order to Enforce Settlement and that the Defendant be imprisoned for as long as he remains in civil contempt for a period not to exceed ninety (90) days from his date of imprisonment. This imprisonment shall commence on June 27, 2011 without further action of the court."

Flair can void the arrest order by paying the $35,000 to Highspots and signing the 300 photos.

Sean Waltman Comments On Chyna Doing Another Porn Video

Credit:TMZ

Former WWE wrestler X-Pac -- who co-starred with Chyna in their 2004 sex-tape -- says he absolutely refuses to watch her new XXX flick ... telling TMZ "It's too hard remembering how devastated she was the first time around."



TMZ spoke with X-Pac -- real name Sean Waltman -- who tells us, "It saddens me ... but she obviously hasn't progressed very far in life."

As we first reported, Chyna recently struck a deal with Vivid Entertainment to release a brand new porno flick featuring the former Playboy model in some compromising positions with multiple endowed male professionals.

Sean adds, "[Chyna] used to say how low she felt after the first [sex tape] was released ... what does that say about where she's at in life now?

New Hulk Hogan Video Game Announced

Hide Your Shirts, Hulkamaniacs! Majesco Entertainment Climbs Into the Ring With 'Hulk Hogan's Main Event' on KinectTM for XBOX 360®

Hulkify Your Living Room as the World's Most Famous Professional Wrestler Puts the Kapow! in Your Kinect

EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - May 27, 2011) - Wrestling icon, IMPACT WRESTLING Superstar, and global sensation Hulk Hogan and Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, announced today a strategic partnership to develop Hulk Hogan's Main Event, exclusively on Kinect™ for Xbox 360® for an expected release this fall. Developed by Panic Button LLC, Hulk Hogan's Main Event is the first performance-based wrestling game on Kinect for Xbox 360 that lets players train with mentor Hulk Hogan as they build their own wrestling personalities and learn the art of showmanship to win over the crowd.

"Hulk Hogan is much more than a wrestling star; he's a sports entertainment icon with a huge personality, a massive following on Spike's IMPACT WRESTLING, and immediate recognition across generations of fans," said Jesse Sutton, CEO Majesco Entertainment. "Partnering with the Hulkster for Hulk Hogan's Main Event is a dream come true and we're looking forward to releasing a no holds barred motion-based experience that offers a full suite of over-the-top moves."

"Listen up, people! You will feel the power of Hulkamania when you step into this game," said Hulk Hogan. "Whether you are taking the damage or selling the pain, this game will let you unleash your inner wrestler as you hype up the crowd while putting the hurt on anyone that stands in your way!"

Hulk Hogan's longtime marketing agent, Darren Prince, CEO of Prince Marketing Group, said, "When we started discussions with Majesco on the format of this game we knew it was a perfect fit for Hulk's global brand."

In Hulk Hogan's Main Event, players will learn the ropes from the man himself as Hulk Hogan schools them on delivering the best show for the crowd by emulating famous Hulk poses and performing more than 30 punishing combos. The Kinect sensor tracks players' every move; the more dynamic the motion, the more high impact the wrestler's performance is. Players will create their own unique wrestler personality through a robust create-a-wrestler feature including many choices for face, hair, tattoos, outfit, ethnicity, body type, and entrance music. Perform in nine different venues including the backyard brawl, local gym and giant stadium in front of a massive audience. Enter tournament mode for two player tag-team and take turns delivering extreme moves. Best of all, players can wield a variety of damaging objects including metal chairs and ladders to deliver bone-jarring hits to their opponents.

Developed by Panic Button LLC, Hulk Hogan's Main Event is expected to launch on Kinect for Xbox 360 this fall. Hulk Hogan will be making an appearance at E3 on Tuesday, 6/7/11, courtesy of IMPACT WRESTLING. For additional information, please register at www.HulkHogansMainEvent.com.

Live Report From TNA's UK Party 5/26/11

TNA Wrestling/Impact Wrestling held their second “UK Party” last night in Manchester at a secret location. I would say there was about 200-300 people at the event location and when 7 pm came around, we were lead to the top floor of the club to be greeted by JB.

We were joined by Jeff and Karen Jarrett via skype who, like last time, called us free loading wankers and challenged Prince William and Katie Middleton to a match on the 2012 Maximum Impact tour. After the Jarrett’s left, TNA Wrestler Brutus Magnus joined the party and was very pleasant taking photos with fans and challenging them to drinking contests.

JB was doing trivia questions all night and people won lots of merch ranging from signed T-Shirts to signed trading cards. After handing out the first batch of merch, Robert Roode joined the part via skype and took questions from the fans. He noted that he is looking at challenging for the World Title soon.

After Roode left, “The Monster” Abyss joined the party via skype and was a really cool guy. He mentioned towards the end of his appearance that the TNA X Division title was now called the X-treme title.

Following Abyss, JB raised a toast to “Macho Man” Randy Savage. It was very classy and you could tell JB was speaking from the bottom of his heart.

Next up we were joined by two shocking surprises in the forms of Kip James and BG James. About 10 minutes before they arrived, people at the party were getting texts saying that Billy has been pulled from his IPWUK date at the weekend due to visa problems but apparently not. Both guys looked in great shape and were really fan friendly.

Both Billy and Road Dogg were on the TNA Spin Cycle and there was a loud “one more match” chant with Beer Money being thrown out as possible opponents.

After taping the first Spin Cycle, Billy and Road Dogg hung out and took photos for about an hour before heading for the exit.
The event was capped off with a all fan “Spin Cycle” and JB handing out tons of stuff for the fans.

Overall, it was a fantastic party with TNA, JB, Jade O Malley and Simon Rothstein making sure everyone got at least a few free things and had a good time.

Seeing The New Age Outlaws was fantastic and they looked in great shape. Magnus was a class act and made sure to talk to everyone there before challenging JB to a dance off

Chyna's Representative Denies Adult Film Rumor

TMZ had posted the following news story earlier in the day:


It's been seven years since WWE superstar Chyna released her horrifying sex tape -- and TMZ has learned, she's making a triumphant return to the adult industry ... in an EXTREMELY graphic porno.



Vivid President Steve Hirsch tells TMZ, Chyna approached him months ago to breathe life into her XXX career -- demanding to work with the biggest male porn star in the business.

Steve did her one better ... and hooked her up with the TWO biggest male porn stars in the business -- Evan and Lee Stone -- and together, the threesome shot a gnarly skin flick ... tentatively called "Backdoor into Chyna."

The DVD is set for release in the near future -- and if the title is any indication, Chyna may be riding a wheelchair to the premiere party.

However, http://alivingwonder.com posted the following:

This morning TMZ posted a story saying Chyna was involved in a new porn career with Vivid Entertainment. This is "totally untrue" according to her managers at Beauty Queen Management who claim Chyna has not and will not be shooting any porn videos. "All rumors relating to Chyna and porn are totally false and should be taken with a grain of salt." her manager Michelle Roberts told alivingwonder.com.
