TNA Counteracts Sin Cara, Ric Flair Undergoes Surgery, More
— Ric Flair underwent successful surgery yesterday to repair a torn rotator cuff. No word yet on how long he will be sidelined.
The WWE Hall of Famer suffered the injury in late January, during a match against Douglas Williams in Manchester, England. He delayed the surgery until his storyline was finalized at TNA Lockdown.
— Jeff Jarrett will be a special guest for the Nashville Sounds baseball game at their opener in Nashville, Tennessee tomorrow night at Greer Stadium. He will be in attendance as a guest speaker to promote the importance of reading before the game as well as signing autographs for fans with Sounds Mascot Ozzie.
— Sangriento, a masked wrestler hailing from Tijuana, Mexico, made his TNA Wrestling debut on this week’s episode of TNA Xplosion as he competed in a Three-Way Match against Chris Sabin and Jay Lethal. The masked luchador pinned Lethal after hitting the former X Division Champion with a springboard cutter.
Sangriento was brainstormed by Spike TV officials as they wanted TNA to introduce a character that would counteract Sin Cara of WWE. TNA considered various independent wrestlers for the role but decided on Amazing Red.
