Flair Undergoes Surgery, Desmond Wolfe Update, Lethal
– Ric Flair underwent successful surgery yesterday to repair a torn rotator cuff. No word yet on how long he will be sidelined.
The WWE Hall of Famer suffered the injury in late January, during a match against Douglas Williams in Manchester, England. He delayed the surgery until his storyline was finalized at TNA Lockdown.
– Hulk Hogan addressed Desmond Wolfe’s status with TNA Wrestling last week on Twitter, writing, “Desmond’s situation is beyond TNA’s control, the ball is completely in his court.” However, several sources indicate otherwise.
Wolfe was scheduled to reform his partnership with Magnus late last year, but Douglas Williams was given the spot instead. Company officials have had plans for the former ROH World Champion to return, including this week, but they have yet to materialize.
Wolfe is currently appearing for various community theaters in Central Florida and working on writing projects. (Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter)
– Jay Lethal, who was released Wednesday by TNA Wrestling, commented on his departure from the organization on Twitter.
“While I am sad that my time with TNA has ended, I am looking forward to this next chapter of my career. Oooooh yeahh! Now taking booking.”
Lethal celebrated his 26th birthday on the day he was released.
