- According to PWInsider.com “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair is scheduled to be on Raw tonight once again. He was on the show last week but was prematurely thrown out by Vince McMahon. He will either continue that storyline or turn it in to hype for his new DVD release.
- This past Friday’s WWE Smackdown on the CW Network drew a 2.1 broadcast rating according to Nielsen Media’s fast national data. If the number changes it will be out in a few days as usual.
- In the “Ring Of Hell” book by Matthew Randazzo, (which you can find the review of on the site) Vince McMahon is mentioned by a former creative team writer as being racist towards Carlito, who is currently on the verge of quitting WWE:
“I remember when I was working with Carlito [Puerto Rican wrestler Carlos Colon] when he just started. Vince wanted to talk to him to get to know him, and I was asked to attend the meeting to help work out a character. So we’re there, Carlito’s talking to him, just a normal conversation; Carlito comes from a normal background, has money. He speaks well. Vince interrupts Carlito mid-sentence and says to him, ‘Hey, can you spic it up some? Y’know spic it up when you talk?’ I look at Vince, this billionaire who just asked some Puerto Rican employee to ‘spic it up’ right to his face, and I just look at Carlito and say, ‘Yeah, spic it up’ like it was a joke,” says Madigan, laughing. “Vince’s image of a Puerto Rican was a Puerto Rican pimp. How out of touch do you have to be to not realize you could get in trouble for that?”
I will post a full list of shocking quotes and revelations from the book in the coming days.
