As reported earlier, The Honky Tonk Man said he's looking to confront Ric Flair before or at the WWE Hall of Fame on April 4 in Houston for the negative things he said about him in his 2004 book release, Ric Flair: To Be the Man. "For the things he said about me in his book, I will finally get a chance to confront him in Conn. this coming Friday night," Honky wrote. "If he dodges me, I will confront him on Sunday night in Mass. If he dodges me again, I will confront him at HOF, and if he skates on me there I will catch him at Mania." The longest reigning Intercontinental Champion of all-time has since clarified his comments in regards to his anger towards Ric Flair. The Honky Tonk Man issued the following statement on his newly launched website, HonkyTonkMan.net: "To all my fans. I will not disturb the Hall of Fame or Wrestlemania 25 in any way. I have nothing but the the up most respect for the WWE and these two great events and would never do anything other than be humbled by being part of the big weekend. I look forward to seeing you all! Honky" My guess is that someone from WWE contacted him and told him to tone down his tune or don't show up at all.
After seven months of non-activity, Gail Kim finally made her to return to WWE on last Friday's edition of SmackDown where she interrupted a Divas Championship match between Maryse and Michelle McCool by attacking both Divas. Following SmackDown, backstage announcer Eve spoke to Kim, who exclusively announced on WWE Mobile for AT&T that she will be appearing in the 25-Diva Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXV.
