— Alongside Maria, Ric Flair is currently making some WWE promotional appearances in Orlando, Florida to help promote WrestleMania 24. When asked about his relationship with WWE, he said that he’s still with the company and that they are working a storyline out for him. When asked about retiring, Flair was non-committal.
— Maria didn’t go on WWE’s full European tour this time around. She still managed to get some ring time this week because she went to Tampa, home of WWE’s developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling. She wanted to work out in the ring at their wrestling school. “This week I’m actually going to Tampa, Florida, and I’m going to work out in the ring at the wrestling school down there, and see who the new girls are and see what they’re all about,” Maria said. “I’m going to have some fun. I’m really excited. Natty Neidhart is down there, and I’m definitely excited to work with her, that’s what I’m looking forward to the most.” Maria talks about this in this week’s edition of “Diva Dish” on WWE.com, which you can read at this link.
