Steve Austin touched upon John Cena trying to come back early from injury on The Steve Austin Show last night, Austin has some advice for Cena, which you can read below:
“I don’t know how long John would like to wrestle, but as long as he wants to, I wouldn’t rush to come back from injury too early because, man, that dude’s a stud in the gym. His healing powers are phenomenal, but just don’t try to rush this thing back because it’s the shoulder and shoulders are tricky and it isn’t the time or place to try to jeopardize if you want another couple year run.”
Speculation has been rife since Shane McMahon returned to WWE Raw last week that the company may be about the split Raw and SmackDown into two separate brands again with involvement from NXT. Speculation furthered when event advertising for an upcoming WWE live event was listed as “WWE vs Raw”, but that ad was quickly changed back to “WWE Raw”.
There has apparently been some talk in WWE regarding a brand split, but the business model as it stands make make that very different to pull off.
As of now, if the brand split does happen, it does not appear that NXT would be involved.
Outstanding Arrest Warrant Against WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair Rescinded
PWInsider.com is reporting that on February 25th, an outstanding arrest warrant against WWE Hall of Famer “Nature Boy” Ric Flair was officially rescinded in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. The warrant was originally issued back in July of 2014 and ordered Flair to be arrested for contempt of court for failing to pay $33,000 in legal fees and support to his former wife Jacqueline as part of a June 2014 settlement. The charge against Flair was technically considered a misdemeanor, and the judge’s order was that Flair be held until the complete amount was paid off. This led to Flair not traveling to the the state of North Carolina while the warrant was still active. Now that the warrant has been rescinded – meaning that Flair has likely paid off the amount owed – Flair is now free to travel anywhere in the state.
