Another WWE Release, Why Was Flair At Raw This Past Week?

Nick Paglino

ric flairWWE has released developmental talent Matt Walsh.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that the reason Ric Flair was backstage at Raw this week is because WWE wanted to use him to swerve the internet into reporting that he would be announced as Raw’s new General Manager. WWE had no plans to use Flair, and were planning the Trump angle for awhile now, but in an attempt to draw focus from their actual plans and prevent an internet leak, WWE decided to bring Flair into the backstage area for Raw this past Monday night so that the internet would run with the Flair/GM story and of course be wrong in the process.
