Thanks to Ranjit Chahal for his help with some of the following newsbits:
-- While Ric Flair has met with WWE officials on a few occasions since the untimely passing of his son Reid Flair, there does not appear to be any rush between the two sides on a return. The company wants to wait until The Miz is ready to return from filming his new movie before doing anything with the Nature Boy.
-- Rosa Mendes was excited about the tour of Europe and now it appears that she might have been a little bit too enthusiastic about the trip. As noted earlier here on the website, the WWE Diva was sent back home to the United States. Management is said to be upset with her for excessive partying, where some are saying that she was drunk the entire duration of the tour. It's now being reported that while several people within the company believe she won't rejoin WWE on the road for a while, she hasn't been suspended.
-- Last month, WWE contacted Beth Phoenix about a return to the company. However, it appears unlikely to happen at the current time. Beth is said to really be enjoying life away from professional wrestling. She was said to have been worn out by the hectic travel schedule. She also was vocal to some of her colleagues about the state of the Divas division. The 32 year old has been spending a lot of time with boyfriend and former WWE star Edge.
