Jim Ross has updated the blog section of his website. This time around he discusses a few topics including Ric Flair’s rumored return to the ring. Below is an excerpt:

Ross on Ric Flair considering a return to the ring: “Ric is in a unique situation as he is one of the few free agent stars out there that can still sell tickets particularly when there is a strong promotion behind him and he is wrestling

in a high profile situation. That situation would be in the Tokyo Dome on January 4, 2009 against a Japanese legend like Masa Chono, for example.

“The Japanese need an ‘outside attraction’ to help resurrect their Dome business and Ric having his ‘Japanese retirement match’ there would definitely help sell tickets. The ceremony and pre-match hype in Japan for this event would be memorable. So, do I know for sure if Ric Flair is going to take a huge money offer for a one off event in Tokyo in the Dome on January 4, 2009? No. Would I be willing to make a friendly wager than it does happen? Without question.”
