Ric Flair’s 1000th RAW Status, Batista Announcement, Bob Backlund



- A WWE source notes that Ric Flair is not expected for the 1,000th RAW episode later this month. Regarding Flair’s upcoming appearance for ICP’s Gathering of the Juggalos, he will not be wrestling but will be hosting the main stage which features music performances.

- The news of Batista appearing in “Man With the Iron Fist” was not the big announcement that he and his agent have been hyping for months. Batista says that announcement is still coming and that fans are going to flip out. He wrote on Twitter:

“Follow @JohnnyRyanJr he’s leaking the announcement this week. You fans are gonna f***ing flip out.”
