Hogan reportedly wanted $35,000, agreed to the price but came back and said he wanted $50,000. Flair turned down the appearance because the event is being held at a high school.
– Tyson Kidd posted the following update on Wednesday:
“First day ‘running’ at therapy. Keeping ahead of schedule. @D1sports helping to build the new me #workhorse”
