Ric Flair Scheduled to Confront CM Punk Next Week On RAW

Next week’s 20th Anniversary edition of RAW is shaping up to be a big one, with several surprise appearances planned by former WWE superstars.

F4wonline.com is reporting that WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is scheduled to appear on the show and the current plan is for him to confront WWE Champion CM Punk.

WWE legends rumored for next week’s RAW from Houston, Texas include the Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and Steve Austin. It’s also expected that WWE will announce the first member of the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2013.

RAW’s 20th Anniversary special will be the first time WWE is not head-to-head with football on a Monday night in several months. Without that competition, another advertised appearance by The Rock and the big returns that are planned, WWE has a great opportunity to build on the momentum of this week’s strong RAW rating headed into the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania season.

    Things are looking real good. They can’t possibly screw things up, can they?

    • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

      With the WWE, you never know. I thought Raw 1000 was going to be good, but it wasn’t in my view.

      • m8h3r

        I don’t think they ever intended to further any storylines that night. However, I think they will try to do that this Monday.

        • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

          Well, they did further storylines with Cm Punk vs. John Cena, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar, and set up The Rock vs CM Punk at the Royal Rumble. So they did something on that night.

          With many big names like Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin, and The Undertaker, and other names making appearances, several opportunities can happen from then to WrestleMania.

            Maybe I missed something. How did they further Punk/Cena? I didn’t even know they were feuding, or did you mean Rock? and I didn’t see anything about HHH/Lesnar on the show

          • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

            It was when Brock Lesnar accepted-via Paul Heyman-challenge to face Triple H at Summer Slam; also, it was the night when CM Punk defended the WWE Championship against John Cena, where CM Punk turned heel and attacked The Rock which furthered the storyline, and I guess it furthered the storyline between Triple H and Brock Lesnar if that match happens at WrestleMania.

            Somehow I thought you were talking about this past weeks Raw my bad.

      • Bushwald Sexyface

        They were never trying to further anything. It was strictly a celebration episode. I think this one will be a mixture of both, which can be a good thing.

    • pwnez

      WWE can mess ANYTHING up.

  • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

    The show’s in Texas, so I think it’s guaranteed Austin, Michaels and Taker will be there. It’s not like they’ve got far to travel.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Well, they had em in the hype video so I think it’s likely. Plus, it’s definitely time for Taker to return to begin his build for his WM match against Cena … I hope

    bring back stone cold.the last time i saw stone cold was in 2011 wwe all star night.bring him back to whoop cm punk’s ass

  • pwnez

    Punk + Flair = gold. I can’t wait to hear these two talk trash.

    • HellNoNO

      CM Punk will drop a pipebomb straight up Flair’s candy ass! Best In The World!!!

    • Best In This Room

      Flair gold? No more like old. Never seen the what the big deal was with Flair. He gets more praise than I think he’s worth

      • pwnez

        That’s your opinion and yes, he is old. I didn’t say I wanted him to wrestle, I just want him to cut a promo with Punk.

  • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

    hmm, I wonder if Ric Flair is going to wrestle Punk; after all, Flair said, “I only need 60 days to get ready.” Interesting.

    Then again, what if Austin and Punk confront each other, if Austin appears next week?

    • Prophetless

      I’m hoping for Punk and Austin. I don’t know if anybody else caught this the other week but Punk listed off names that he could beat with 1 arm tied behind his back or something like that and the last name was Austin. Pretty random because other names were Ryback, Cena, Flair, and Rock.

    • http://twitter.com/CraigDeBoard Craig DeBoard

      Wouldn’t it be fucking hilarious if Austin confronts Punk and then at Mania, Austin helps Punk beat The Rock since Austin has never liked The Rock. Everyone who’s been wanting to see Austin vs. Punk would be pissed. That would be hilarious.

      • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

        Sounds similar when Austin and Mr. Mcmahon aligned at WrestleMania 17; no one saw it coming. Would be interesting: Austin, Punk, and Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman, that would be interesting.

    • morrisonfanone

      Lord, I hope not. He’s way too old to be wrestling. Like Sting.

      • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

        There’s a ten year age difference between Sting and Ric Flair.

        • morrisonfanone

          Still, they might break something.


    Ric Flair just needs to go away, i m tired of this old man.

    • Kyle

      Looks like three buttsuckers disagree with you.

      • morrisonfanone

        And two agree.

  • 7 year old boy

    So many stars so little time for Cena :(

    • http://twitter.com/NeosOfDark #LOLZ

      When did 7 years old kids get there hands on the internet? No better yet come here boy i got some candy with Cena on it!

      • Vinnie

        That didn’t sound right buddy.

        • http://twitter.com/NeosOfDark #LOLZ

          You know you want some candy to with you’re favorite wrestler on it!

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Too bad it cant stay that way for, I dunno, ever.

  • http://www.facebook.com/donaldschreiber1108 Donald Schreiber

    Wow, the link at the bottom of the page is an EXACT copy of the article above on 24 Wrestling… WHY SESCOOPS, WHY???!!!

    If Ric Flair ever competes it won’t be a real match it will be a fight probably.

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    oO maybe Flair can be in a “match” that’s not really a match with Rock in his corner or something. I don’t know. Seeing Rock and Flair together again would be pretty neat though.

  • whos john cena

    Everything in the wwe can be a whole lot better

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Except Sandow.

  • Peter Griffin


  • Bushwald Sexyface

    I wonder if Katie Vick will make an appearance at the show…

  • ohHELLno

    “Flair confronts Punk, LIVE, tonight on RAW!” …yeah, but not until the final five minutes of RAW, right?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Al-Oli/1191330090 Al Oli

    Did anyone else see Staacy kiebler in the promo video for next week?

    • morrisonfanone

      I hope so. Seeing as how Beth left, they need someone.


    I only want to see Rock/ HBK/ Taker / Austin as far as legends are concerned. The other legends like Flair, Slaughter, Snuka, Okerlund, Piper etc… Don’t care about these guys anymore. That’s just the way I feel.

  • morrisonfanone

    The only one I want is Edge. He’s the only one I care about.
