Sixteen-time world heavyweight pro wrestling champion Ric Flair learned Wednesday that he will have to undergo surgery next week for a torn left triceps.

Flair, 62, suffered the injury during a match with Sting last week on TNA’s weekly Impact show. Initially Flair was told that the injury was limited to a broken bursa sac in his left elbow.

“I thought it was getting better but the swelling just wouldn’t go away,” Flair said Wednesday night.

Flair, who was at Boston’s Fenway Park on Tuesday to throw out the first pitch and present Red Sox players Dustin Pedroia and Josh Reddick with replica TNA title belts, said the pain had increased in recent days. “When I threw Tuesday, the arm blew up to about twice the size of the other arm. It’s all black and blue.”

Flair amazingly has suffered few major injuries during his nearly 40 years in the ring.

“I’ve never torn anything in my life except my rotator cuff,” he said. “I just landed on it wrong. And that just comes from not working enough. But it’s no big deal. It could have been a thousand other worse things.”

Update On Vince McMahon Being Unhappy At Raw

As reported earlier, Vince McMahon was said to be irate at Raw this week when Alberto Del Rio mentioned his name on TV.

According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Word is that Vince felt Del Rio gave away the end result of the Kevin Nash and John Laurinaitis storyline by mentioning him. Some say that Vince was in a bad mood before Del Rio name dropped him. It's said that Stephanie McMahon and Triple H both took more of the brunt from Vince this week than others, as did the agents, mainly Dean Malenko and Arn Anderson.

The writers had to do the usual script changes this week but sources say it was worse this week than most others.

Regarding the Mark Henry and Jerry Lawler angle, they went back and forth all day on whether or not to have Henry put Lawler trough the table. Shortly before RAW started, they made the decision to put him through it. The table was supposed to be gimmicked so it would break easier but because of the late decision, somehow the table wasn't gimmicked and Lawler was put through it the hard way.

Both Henry and Lawler were upset about the angle but Vince himself was said to be furious about it. After RAW ended, Vince called the agents and writers in for a meeting. Sources say Vince went into a "full-on red faced promo" where everyone felt they were being warned.
