Flair/RAW Update, More Rumble News, Ultimate Warrior, & More

Ric Flair was traveling from New York to Philadelphia so he will be backstage at Raw tonight. However, there is no word on whether he'll be appearing on the show or not.

Madison Square Garden security were taking away fan signs at the entrance. In several cases, they weren't even looking at the signs. Nonetheless, many people were able to sneak their signs in.


A clarification on the story of Ultimate Warrior requesting police protection due to threatening e-mails over his controversial blog on the death of Heath Ledger. Warrior did indeed request police protection, and he got it. TMZ reported on their show over the weekend that he is actually on around-the-clock police protection.

Yesterday was the 15-year anniversary of the death of wrestling legend Andre the Giant.
