— WWE has dropped New Year’s Revolution from their pay-per-view schedule for 2008 and beyond. The 2008 edition was scheduled to take place on January 6. This comes after they dropped December to Dismember from the pay-per-view schedule earlier in the year. The company noticed that they did better than expected buys for SummerSlam this year, with five weeks in between pay-per-view, and that the pay-per-views that weren’t doing well were the ones that were sandwiched in between several other shows. There will now be six weeks in between Armageddon on December 16 and the Royal Rumble on January 27.
— Donald A Barron sent in the following… I heard Ric Flair on “The Drive” on Fox Sports Radio around 2:45 PM CST, 10/19/07. He spoke about Benoit, his love for the WWE, how the 4 Horsemen were created, WrestleMania in Orlando, FL, and a caller asked him if he would ever go to TNA. He said he would never go to TNA. He said no disrespect to them but he is WWE for the rest of his career. When asked, he mentioned that one of his all time favorite matches was against Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat in Chicago back in 1989. I am not sure if you can download the broadcast but the interview pretty clearly shows that Ric Flair is still with the WWE and still supports them 100%. Sorry TNA fans, no Ric Flair in your future. He ended the interview with a classic “Woooooo.”
