Backstage News On Ric Flair's WWE Status, Stephanie McMahon's Birthday Shout-out For Vince

- WWE will reportedly be using Hall of Famer Ric Flair more on TV in the next few weeks. Flair isn't expected at next Monday's RAW but should be back on RAW before September is over.

- Regarding Stephanie McMahon's "birthday rib" on Vince McMahon before the final RAW segment this week in Brooklyn, that was not in the script and was not approved, as Stephanie mentioned on the mic. We noted that there was some celebrating going on for Vince's birthday backstage during the day and apparently Stephanie was walking around with a "happy birthday" hat on for most of the day. Most of Vince's family was backstage but we don't believe Shane McMahon was there.
