Ric Flair Squashes Claim That He Is Wrestling In Georgia, Raven Launches Podcast, Elijah Burke

- An independent organization in Georgia, AWF, is falsely advertising Ric Flair as competing at their "Wrestle Jam" event in Ringgold next Thursday.

In a press release the organization sent out, Flair is advertised to step into the AWF ring for the second time in a month against "Nature Boy" Paul Lee to "settle their ongoing feud." The company claims that Flair and Lee have been rivals dating back to the early 1990s in World Championship Wrestling, which is false since Lee never appeared for the promotion.

The WWE Hall of Famer squashed the claim, writing on Twitter on Friday, "I am planning to go to the show in Ringgold May 30th, but I'm just signing autographs, NOT wrestling. Not sure how that rumor got started."

- Raven has launched a podcast on YouTube, The Raven Effect, where he talks about wrestling and any other subject that pops into his head. In this edition, he talks about hats, head size and BBC America TV shows, in addition to wrestling.



- Former WWE and TNA Wrestling talent Elijah Burke turns 35-years-old today.
