- Some within WWE believe that the days of bulk cuts around WrestleMania time may be over. Based on the number of hours of WWE programming and the thin talent roster, while there will obviously be cuts in the future, they probably won’t all happen at once like in recent years.
– The Rock was in Boston all last week, likely for the holidays, and was working out at the local Gold’s Gym three or four times. Rock was trying to keep low-key and it was said that he lifted heavy but not that heavy with lots of sets of biceps and triceps, lots of squats.
– Ric Flair will be wrestling for All Japan Pro Wrestling at the January 26th show from Tokyo that we reported on yesterday. AJPW has been trying to get flair on a big show for months but couldn’t agree on financial terms. Flair’s son Reid will be training at AJPW so it’s possible that was part of the deal for Ric to wrestle.
Flair will be teaming with The Great Muta to face Tatsumi Fujinami and Seiya Sanada.
