Another Top Name Expected to Be at Smackdown This Week

In addition to Scott Hall being in Atlanta for the WWE Smackdown taping this week to shoot Network footage, PWInsider.com reports Ric Flair is expected to be backstage at the tapings as well.

As of this writing, Flair has yet to pass the WWE medical tests he's expected to take, so he could be attending the tapings to film Network footage as well or simply to visit backstage.
