Backstage News on Ziggler, Why WWE Didn’t Use Flair for RAW 1000, More

– UFC President Dana White was interviewed by and put Vince McMahon at #2 on the list of greatest promoters, right behind PT Barnum at #1.

– Chris Jericho is now being advertised for the post-SummerSlam RAW on August 20th in Fresno, California.

– There were lots of people within WWE that wanted Ric Flair to appear at the RAW 1000 episode this past Monday. Flair not being there shows how serious WWE is about not pursuing talents that have had recent ties to TNA while the TNA vs. WWE lawsuit is going on.

– As some may have guessed after he won the Money in the Bank briefcase, Dolph Ziggler is indeed being groomed for a run with the World Heavyweight Title. Regarding how he is looked at backstage, Ziggler is known for being a good worker and it’s said that all of the top babyfaces in WWE want to work with him.

    Ziggler is the future of wwe as well as Cody rhodes. Zack Ryder. Not brodus clay with his pointless character

  • Men on a Mission

    Dolph Ziggler vs. Billy Gunn. Make it happen.

    Great news for Ziggler. He really doesn’t need Vickie anymore though. That’s it.

  • Knightcon

    The 90 day deal doesn’t matter cuz flair had his contract before TNA started the 90 day deal. The WWE has been doing it for years but there are a few guys who have it waved in their contracts. Like Mick Foley.

  • “Bad MAn” Bigelow

    It hasn’t even been 90 days since TNA fired Flair…

  • Shawn

    Can’t wait for all the TNA folks to jump to WWE once this whole lawsuit thing blows over. It’ll be cool to see guys like Flair, Morgan and The Dudleys back and newcomers like Shelley, Sky and Love make their debuts. WWE is about to get really exciting.

    I’m guessing the Dana White comment is sincere. Even though Vince and Dana are “rivals” so to speak the both hold a great amount of respect for each other so I have heard.

    @Tommy the Hate on Ken Doane is old and ur not Cool nor Funny for it.

  • Tommy

    Well at least there was a good thing about the Spirit Squad.

    Unlike Kenny…

  • Mabry

    Of course everyone will want to work with Ziggler, the guy sells every move in great fashion… Ziggler is the future of WWE, dont F*ck it up creative team, by feeding him to Super “Saiyaman” Cena….
    Btw, is the Dana White comment supposed to be flattering or is he being ironic???

  • mark

    Yep him working with Jericho will be good for his career. Keep Ziggler as a heel though

  • Pete

    I can’t blame them for wanting to work with him, he is a great talent and deserves the briefcase.
