Ric Flair was just spotted with his new 28-year girlfriend Kelly Brewster, who grew up in New Jersey, at LAX.
Ric Flair is still friendly with Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon, but he quit WWE last year. Stephanie McMahon is the Chief Brand Officer in WWE and has remained a part of the top management in the company. It was recently revealed that Kenny Dykstra, known as Spirit Squad member Kenny in WWE had emailed Stephanie in 2016 about possibly appearing for the company again. Stephanie McMahon had also revealed a sad truth about Vince.
Along with Mike Mondo, Dykstra was one of two Spirit Squad members who returned in 2016. The one-time Tag Team Champions were featured on SmackDown for six weeks as part of a storyline between The Miz and their former stablemate Dolph Ziggler.
Mike Mondo opens up on the matter
Speaking on Rene Dupree’s Cafe de Rene podcast, Mondo said he and Dykstra were not contacted to make appearance again after their brief return to Vince McMahon’s company:
“We tried to be proactive and stuff about it,” Mondo recalled. “I know Kenny sent Stephanie an email. I was talking to the writers trying to get something sparking again, because when you’re in the hot seat like that you wanna kind of keep things rolling once things are going. You don’t want to be out of sight, out of mind. It’s the worst spot to be.”
Though they received a lot of television time during that span, Mondo revealed that he and Dykstra were never under contract:
“We were non-contract the whole time, which is very weird,” said Mondo. “They must have had a lot of trust in us because we were on live TV, they gave us a microphone. We had no deal whatsoever. It was Chioda [former referee Mike Chioda] that was like, ‘That’s unheard of, usually, everyone’s signed under the paper.’”
Dykstra and Mondo made their final on-screen appearance when they were featured in a 16-man tag team match on the November 15, 2016 episode of SmackDown. In recent months, Dykstra has made his comeback to WWE. However, he is not a performer anymore and has taken up a backstage role of a producer.
