Matches for Tonight’s TNA iMPACT, Update on Ric Flair Needing Surgery, More

– TNA has announced that iMPACT will be coming to FUEL TV in Australia next month, beginning Saturday June 11th at 8:30pm.

– Hulk Hogan noted on Twitter that he is filming new commercials for Rent-A-Center with NFL legend Troy Aikman.

– Matches for tonight’s TNA iMPACT on Spike TV include Rob Terry vs. Murphy, Sangrieto vs. Suicide, Brother Ray & Gunner vs. Daniels & AJ Styles, Mickie James vs. Miss Tessmacher and main event action with Kurt Angle & Velvet Sky vs. Jeff Jarrett, Winter & Angelina Love.

– As noted before, Ric Flair needs surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff. Flair has decided against surgery for now because he doesn’t want to take the six months off that it would take to heal the injury.

    I love Ric Flair. I am quite possibly the biggest Ric Flair fan on the planet. That being said, Ric Flair needs to stay the hell out of the ring. He makes a wonderful manager/mouthpiece, but in-ring action only serves to deteriorate his legacy as well as put him at risk of a tragic injury. Or even worse, looking like Hogan.

    i thought flair already got surgery after the last pay per view. wasnt that the reason he tapped out to roode’s arm breaker? so he could say he got injured there instead of months ago?

  • Actually, as someone who’s been around this kind of thing for a while, I can honestly say that in the case of rotator cuff surgery, often times the surgery is worse than the injury. And about 60% of the time, it doesn’t work. I can’t say I blame Flair for electing against going under the knife for the iffy procedure. Having said that, he still shouldn’t be taking bumps anymore.

    If Flair doesn’t get surgery now he’ll regret it in 10 years time when it gets so bad that it forces him to retire whilst he’s in his prime…
