WWE Stars To National Conventions, Heyman Discusses Flair

Nick Paglino

WWE announced that Batista, Shelton Benjamin, and Candice Michelle to the Democratic National Convention in Denver from Aug. 26-31. The company will also be sending Shawn Michaels, Mr. Kennedy, and Mickie James to the Republican National Convention in St. Paul from Sept. 1-4.

Paul Heyman was critical of Ric Flair’s decision to leave WWE in his latest UK Sun Blog. “It’s sad to see Flair advertised for some low rent wrestling shows at this stage of his life,” Heyman writes. “He should really be above that. I don’t know what his take will be in 12 months, but unless it’s significantly above the half million dollars he was making from Vince McMahon, I just don’t understand what he’s trying to accomplish…

“I’m not saying Flair shouldn’t take advantage of his earning potential right now. And I hope he makes millions in whatever he does. But seeing him in these ads for every rinky dink out there just makes him look ancient instead of being relevant, which he still can be.” To read the blog and view a promo Flair cut to hype an upcoming indy appearance in Chicago, visit the UK Sun Website.
