The Ric Flair trainís ready to arrive at Porno Junction. At least thatís the prevailing rumor right now in wrestling circles.
No, itís got nothing to do with ex Dolphin/Bengal free spirit Chad Johnson saying he might consider doing porn, or Hollywood actor Robert Pattinson stating that heíd never consider having sex on camera. Itís all about Flair being a pro wrestler and pro wrestlers, like musicians, are always looking for their next gig.
And should The Nature Boy wind up with Rob Black, donít say I didnít tell you so.
But didnít Black and his outfit XPW part company years ago? Yes they did. Rob as you know had that little problem with a federal obscenity indictment, but before the G-Men showed up in North Hollywood one April morning, Black was at the point when he had some pretty big names on his Saturday night cards at the Olympic Auditorium. Like Sabu, New Jack and Shane Douglas.
I think Terry Funk was even involved there for awhile. If memory also serves correct Xtreme Entertainment Group wound up purchasing the XPW name and Blackís former general manager at Extreme Associates, Kevin Kleinrock was made Vice President.
Those owners having failed to do anything with the XPW name, Black bought back his baby. And now Black will re-launch the brand using the Internet particularly Roku as his delivery platform. The Roku channel from what Iím hearing will be called ďAttitudeĒ.
This is where Flair comes in because part of the re-launch will consist of a Royal Rumble spectacular scheduled for, as yet, an unspecified venue. Itíll feature the XPW old guard and some surprises. Flairís name dropped in the hat is enough of a surprise, already.
