Found December 30, 2012 on Wrestling Truth:
Reid Flair signs with AJPW: Reid Flair, the youngest son of wrestling legend Ric Flair, has signed a three month deal with All Japan Pro Wrestling. The 24 year old school amateur star will debut on January 23rd. As well as getting in there with his father, Flair has received training from the likes of former World champ Harley Race and Terry Taylor. WWE are believed to be interested in signing the rookie but feel that because of certain attitude problems it would be better if he paid some dues outside of the company first. ___________________________________________________________ Michelle McCool discusses working with Torrie Wilson & Mae Young: As part of her ongoing shoot interview with the former WWE Diva discussed her realtionship with Torrie Wilson and Mae young… Torrie Wilson: “She’s a legend as far as Divas go. I think she’s always overlooked, some people just saw her more as the ‘ultimate Diva,’ but didn’t see her much as a wrestler — and she fought that the whole time she was there. I think everybody will agree that ‘Torrie Wilson’ is a name that nobody — no true wrestling fan — will ever forget.” [...] “I think she’s a great in-ring talent. I don’t think she got nearly enough as much credit as she should have.” Torrie’s Character: “I honest to goodness don’t think that I can think of a single person in the entire world that is more genuine, nicer, funnier, kinder than she is. I love her absolutely to death. We hit it off from day one. I was able to ride with her a lot, get to know her, and we became dear, dear friends. She’s somebody that I know I’ll have in my life for the rest of my life.” Forming A Friendship: “We were on different shows for a long time, and I can’t remember which year — it was probably her last, when she got drafted to SmackDown. We never know what’s going on behind the scenes on the night of the draft, so we’re all sitting back there… waiting. They call five or six people up to the guerrilla position for the draft, so that they can get the natural reactions when they tell us who got drafted to RAW or SmackDown. So, they call Torrie up there, and they do the draft that SmackDown got someone. Sure enough, it was Torrie and she walked out there and I remember she was crying on screen. She didn’t want to come to SmackDown! I remember Stephanie saying: “We got a natural reaction but we had to pan out because there were tears in her eyes and do a wide-shot. So I told her, once she got backstage: “Oh, I’m so sorry, Tor! I know this isn’t what you wanted.” She goes: “You’re not sorry!” So I started laughing and I told her, “Yeah, I’m not sorry. I’m kinda glad you’re on my show now!” Memories With Mae: “A couple of us were in one of those bikini contests, which yeah, could have been any given night. This particular night, they brought out Mae Young — and she is absolutely amazing. She comes out in this one-piece bathing suit and she’s trying to strip down! We are literally trying to keep her from taking her clothes off in the ring, but we’re about to wet ourselves from laughing so much! The referee is telling us: “Girls, contain her! Girls, contain her!” We’re like… what in the world?! She’s strong as can be! I don’t care what age she is, she can probably beat my butt! Mae is just like, “move it, girls” and she’s pushing us to the side. Finally, Torrie just gives up and tells Mae if she’s going to flash somebody, turn towards JBL! We just started dying laughing. She was just ribbing us!” Girlfriends Forever: “So from driving to the wrong city, hair extensions falling out, teeth coming out… any and everything in between, she’s just the kindest, most genuine person in the entire, entire world. I just mean that from the bottom of my heart. Love her to death and just wish that if anybody deserves ultimate happiness, it is definitely Torrie. She is one sweet girl… that I love.” ___________________________________________________________ Sky crashes her truck: TNA Knockout Velvet Sky missed the Poughkeepsie, New York, TNA show on Saturday after she was involved in a car wreck. She wrote on Twitter: “As I write this I’m on the side of the highway where I was en route to Poughkeepsie’s house show until my truck spun out and ended up in a ditch due to the blizzard that’s going on right now. Sorry to the fans that were wanting to see me tonight, but I won’t be at the Impact show. I’m ok, just really shaken up from the accident, and I’m sitting in wait for a tow truck to rescue me. All those traveling tonight in the CT/NY area and beyond, plz be careful. I have seen so many accidents today already and the roads are dangerous tonight. God Bless those traveling.” ___________________________________________________________ DiBiase injures hand: Ted DiBiase sustained a hand injury during the December 26, WWE Smackdown house show in Chicago, Illinois in a match against Fandango.
