Flair to Wrestle at ‘Mania?, Booker T Responds to WWE’s Actions

Nick Paglino

Ric Flair recently spoke out on the Between The Ropes radio show about a possible match against Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania and said the following: "Never. I would be very open to it if Shawn Michaels said ‘don’t give me the Rolex back, do it.’ That would be the only way. Shawn would have to say ‘go for it because you miss it that much,’ which I don’t. I miss the boys."

We reported a couple days ago that WWE has lured a few talents away from a charity event that TNA star Booker T is running on the same weekend as Wrestlemania. The show was to feature such talents as Torrie Wilson, Nick Bockwinkle and Ron Simmons, however WWE booked them for their Wrestlemania Axxess weekend instead. In an interview which you can read in The Houston Press, Booker commented on the situation by saying "It’s not going to stop anything, we’re still going to go forward with it. We’re just replacing those people with actually bigger names. I don’t think me doing my charity is going to hurt the revenue of WrestleMania, or hurt the Hall of Fame. We’re not doing this, you know, to hurt WrestleMania, or ride their coattails or anything."

When asked if he could comment on the situation WWE spokesperson Bob Zimmerman said "I don’t even know what his charity deal is, to be perfectly honest with you."
