More On Ric Flair’s Farewell Tonight, Michael Hayes Update, More

Chris Cash

I have received a couple of emails asking if Ric Flair’s “farewell address” tonight in Charlotte, NC will be televised or not. The word going around right now is that it will more than likely be simply for the live crowd, but I would not be surprised if that added it into the Smackdown tapings.

Michael Hayes will be inducting Buddy Roberts, his friend and former Freebird partner, into the NWA Wrestling Legends Hall of Heroes. The event will take place on August 15th in Charlotte, NC. He will also be signing autographs earlier in the day. For more information, you can visit

A reader emailed me a promo that aired for an upcoming Smackdown/ECW tapings that advertises Triple H as the champion defending against Edge. House show matches sometimes can give an idea as to where the WWE may be headed creatively, but it’s far too often that they don’t. Although speculation leads you to believe Triple H will probably retain this Sunday, future house show cards are not the reason to believe it will happen as they are definitely not a very reliable source to prove such theories.
