Ric Flair appeared on Monday's episode of "Lizard Lick Towing' on TruTV as the main cast members were working security for him at a charity event. Thanks to Rafi Stern.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross wrote a really good blog entry at his official website, JRsBarBQ.com looking at Raw and a lot of other topics. On the subject of the IOC dropping wrestling for the Olympics starting in 2020, Ross wrote, "Wrestling being dropped from the Olympic Games by the apparent, out of touch International Olympic Committee, the IOC, is, bottom line, pet coon goofy. It makes absolutely no sense to eliminate the oldest sport in the Olympic Games and to compromise the integrity of the Games for TV ratings and more cash. Many mat dreams were dashed today regarding the IOC's announcement and hopefully smarter heads will prevail before this mandate is actually ratified."

WWE NXT has a show tonight in Orlando, Florida at the Armory. Billy Gunn will be appearing. They are also running in Friday in Ft. Pierce, FL at the Fenn Center with Zack Ryder appearing.

Speaking of WWE developmental, all signs are that they will have moved operations into the Orlando area no later than September, possibly sooner.

Gene Okerlund, Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler will be doing a Q&A event and meet and greet on 2/22 in Milwaukee at the Northern Lights Theater located inside the Potawatomi Casino.

Mark Henry did a promotional interview with Power 92.3 in Little Rock, Arkansas yesterday:
