Backstage Note from the SmackDown Tapings, Flair Talks Lawler, RAW Rating

– WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair appeared on CNN Headline News this evening to talk about and the heart attack he suffered during last night. Flair said he believes Lawler is more qualified to wrestle than most of the wrestlers on WWE’s roster because of his experience.

– In an update on the RAW rating, the show did a 2.88 cable rating. In comparison, the two games on did 10.96 million viewers and 10.45 million viewers.

– No word yet on who will do the announcing at tonight’s SmackDown tapings. The only word coming from the arena is that it’s pretty quiet backstage and likely to be a tame show.
