Ric FlairRic Flair told Mike Mooneyham of PostandCourier.com that the injury he received during his bout with Sting on Impact Wrestling, which was thought to be a broken bursa sac, was actually a torn left triceps. As a result, Flair will be undergoing surgery next week to repair the tear.

"I thought it was getting better, but the swelling just wouldn't go away," said Flair of the injury. He added, "When I threw [the first pitch at the Red Sox game] Tuesday, the arm blew up to about twice the size of the other arm. It’s all black and blue."
