Joey Ryan is really milking the dick flip thing for all its worth. Thats all he really has going for him, and it was old the second time he did it.

He's never done the dick flip in Lucha Underground, and I've enjoyed what he's done there.

And I like how he proposed to his girlfriend in the middle of an intergender match ... only to win with a cheap rollup after she says "yes"

Violinist Lee England Jr. and WWE music wizards CFO$ took to the streets of New York City to perform a new version of Shinsuke Nakamura's theme song in Times Square, Central Park and the Barclays Center, which will host SummerSlam 2017.

That G1 final was amazing. One of the best matches I've ever seen.

Anywhere to stream it? Hell, with the way people are talking about it I would be willing to PPV it. My cable company doesn't have the network that carreis NJPW unfortunately, and all I can find on YouTube has Japanese commentary. Any links to the English commentary would be appreciated.

Ric is quite possibly the best to ever live and THE MAN on the Microphone. The guy can cut a promo on anything. He can get you hyped for making brownies.

One of the best I ever heard was after the beat down of Dusty Rhodes(Rhodes came to Flair's rescue after Flair was attacked by the Russians in a cage match).

Ric Flair Placed In Medically Induced Coma.

In a sad update to the on-going Ric Flair medical situation, Fightful .com owner Jimmy Van is reporting that sources close to the situation are telling him that Flair has been put in a medically induced coma.

It is still not fully known why Flair was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit on Saturday for other than heart-related issues. His management and a number of those close to Flair have asked for fans to send prayers to the 16-time world champion.

Flair's close friend, Michael PS Hayes tweeted, "I saw @RicFlairNatrBoy before I flew to Boston yesterday I can assure that he needs everyone's prayers and positive vibes. Thx in advance!!"

This doesn't sound good at all. If he dies, I will be heartbroken.

This one will hurt. Savage was bad but Flair was my guy. I was an NWA fan growing up and the Flair and the Horsemen were it for me.

Same here. Got pulled into wrestling by watching the Rock n Roll Express, but it was must see tv anytime Ric and the Horsemen were on.

TMZ is reporting that the coma is the first step in a surgical procedure to fix the problems he's having.

TMZ's update:

1:47 PM PT -- Flair is out of surgery and resting, a rep for WWE tells TMZ Sports.
Unclear how the surgery went but we're told Ric's family is by his side and they're waiting to meet with doctors.

Yes, I agree. All the stories you hear about these guys taking like 200 painkillers a day to cope with careers that lasted a few years yet Flair probably wrestled every single day for decades, usually 45mins to an hour, and outlasted everyone!

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

As I'm watching Raw for the first time in a month or so I'm remember that Booker was just supposed to be on commentary until Otunga got back from shooting a movie. Was the whole movie thing just a story to get Otunga off of tv cause he sucked?

Emma complained on Twitter a little over a month ago about not being used at all. Of course, instead of giving her a break, the powers that be decided to bury her for it.

Rusev and Lana refused to hide their feelings for each other for VKM, and they are being booked as full time losers as well. Rusev would make a great babyface if they let him be more like himself.

WOW! Cena just buried Mahal and Baron Corbin at the same time tonight! On Smackdown of all places. They made Corbin waste his money in the bank opportunity with this shit. And WWE wonders why ratings and profits continue to go down.
