Vince Talks With Carlito, Flair's Son Signs With WWE, More
By Ryan Gray | December 11, 2007
-- As we have previously reported, Carlito was very frustrated with his position in WWE, thus he gave his notice to management several weeks ago. He felt that he would get a deal worked out with TNA and also work with his father's promotion in Puerto Rico. Once WWE received his notice, they began jobbing him out and placing him in embarrassing storylines with Hornswoggle. After Booker made the jump to TNA Vince decided that it would not be good for a young, upcoming start to follow suit. Therefore, last week before RAW he sat down with Carlito and convinced him to stay.
-- WWE has signed Ric Flair's youngest son Reid Fliehr, 19 to a developmental contract. He will be reporting to Florida Championship Wrestling next month.
-- The December 4th SmackDown/ECW house show in Belfast, Ireland drew a legitimate sellout of 7,000 fans. UFC held an event at the same arena several months ago, and didn't have near the turn out. High ticket prices were blamed for UFC's poor performance.
