Hello everyone and welcome to today’s edition of The News!! This is the day where I bring you all of the wrestling news you will ever need for your Saturday night. Why would you ever want to go through many websites, searching through various articles when all the news you need is here, on the best website, the top website, the number one website and quite frankly, the only website you will ever need, NerdCorp. Enough nonsense, let’s just get to the news shall we?!?!
Terry Funk Update – PWInsider has a report on Terry Funk returning to the ring at last night’s Big Time Wrestling event. The show was held at the Dorton Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. Funk teamed up with the Rock N’ Roll Express against Jerry Lawler, Brian Christopher, and Doug Gilbert at the event. During the match, Funk reportedly pulled off Christopher’s belt and beat him with it, causing Christopher’s pants to fall off as he was being beaten. The match reportedly went “all over the place.” Eventually, the bell rank and Funk’s team was named the winners by disqualification due to Lawler attacking a referee. The action continued when Funk delivered a piledriver on Lawler. Funk then beat up and piledrived a group of referees. The show then ended with Funk thanking the fans for giving “an old fart” some new life. About 900 people were said to be in attendance for the event, which was down from the last BTW event in Raleigh.
Charlotte Speaks – TMZ Sports released a video of a photographer speaking to Charlotte Flair at an airport asking her about her father, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, recently being put into a medically induced coma. During the video, Charlotte says she knew her father would “kick out” and survive his recent medical issues. She also revealed that Ric Flair has returned home after his stay in the hospital.
Charlotte Speaks…Again… – This time, Charlotte spoke with The New York Post on more subjects, mainly about Ronda Rousey and Cris Cyborg. Here is what she had to say…
“I think it is great because whether Ronda or Cyborg want to be a part of the company, it is still drawing more attention to the women’s division as a whole. Anytime outsiders who aren’t necessarily our main audience are interested, ‘Oh, they want to go to WWE. Who do they want to wrestle?’ I just think it is exciting. I just think it puts more eyes on us.”
