Major WWE Backlash Spoiler Inside?, Heyman/Flair, RAW, More

Ryan Clark


Reader Mark sent word that there are advertisements running on Sky Sports 3 in the United Kingdom promoting Triple H vs. JBL vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Championship at Backlash later this month. If this is the case, I’d say there is where Triple H takes back the title.

The live late night edition of this past Monday’s Raw did about 73,000 viewers in the UK.

Paul Heyman criticizes WWE’s tribute to Ric Flair – http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sport/wrestling/heyman/article1005842.ece

In an interview with GamingRing.com, THQ stated that they are doing a number of tweaks and improvements to many of the match types in Smackdown vs Raw 2009 including the Hell in the Cell match. Also, the brand new story mode called “Road to Wrestlemania” will only last 3 months but will have separate storylines for each wrestler on the game.

There were a group of guys sitting all the way at the very top for Wrestlemania at the Citrus Bowl. They had a sign that they hung over the ledge (Just like One Night Stand) that said “If Cena wins, We jump”. The sign was taken away before the event even started.

Ric Flair was on ABC doing the pregame intros for the New Orleans Hornets vs. Golden State Warriors game on the court wearing his blue and black robe. (They play his whoooooo at various parts of games ever since they were the Charlotte Hornets.) Also said “Chris ‘by god’ Paul” like he was cutting a promo while announcing.
