Ric Flair Hospitalised, Alberto El Patron STRIPPED Of GFW Championship! | WrestleTalk News

Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News
– I’m Oli Davis. Bad News Starbucks
Omnipresent, overpriced coffee franchise Starbucks is well known for incorrectly writing its
customers’ names on their orders. One conspiracy theory says the spelling mistakes are intentional
– generating free publicity when users share those hilariously spelt names on social media.
Going by former WWE wrestler Wade Barrett’s recent experience…yeah, that works.
When Barrett told the ‘Starbucks chap’ to use his real name ‘Stu Bennett’ on
his order, the coffee chain replied with some baaaaaad neeeeeeews – accidentally writing
the name of his memorable, but ultimately doomed, 2010 WWE faction the Nexus.
Barrett left WWE last year, putting his wrestling career on hold to pursue one in acting…
John Morrison To GFW/TNA? …former WWE Intercontinental and Tag Team
Champion John Morrison, however, has been doing both at the same time – holding titles
around the world with two films set for release this year.
Morrison is a current Triple Crown champion in AAA, holding their Mega, Latin American
and World Cruiserweight titles all at the same time. He’s also Lucha Underground’s
current champion on TV – which makes his next potential move rather intriguing.
Jeremy Borash announced at a press conference last month that Morrison (going by his real
name John Hennigan) had signed with GFW (the new name for TNA) to appear for the promotion’s
live events in New York on the 4th and 5th of August. This seemed to be for the live
events only, though, as Morrison is still under contract with Lucha Underground who
have 10 episodes yet to air of their third season. Having a wrestler appear on a rival’s
television show, especially when they hold your top championship, is considered very
bad practice. But late last week, StocktonCon announced
Morrison wouldn’t be able to make his dates for them on the 19th and 20th August “due
to a contractual agreement with GFW Impact Wrestling [IMAGE]. Wrestling Observer Radio
has since revealed it’s because he’ll be at the Impact Wrestling tapings from Thursday,
where GFW are taping 12 weeks of television – which would take them all the way up to
Bound for Glory on November 5th. This news could reveal several other significant
ramifications in wrestling. Firstly, Lucha Underground letting their top champion appear
for a rival television show – when they had previously been very protective of their exclusive
contracts – is worrying for the programme’s future. Secondly, could Morrison’s debut
play into GFW’s breaking announcement… GFW Strip Alberto El Patron Of Championship
“GFW has concluded its internal consideration of the events surrounding the suspension of
Alberto El Patron…We have communicated with El Patron our decision to strip him of his
championship title.” Alberto was suspended by GFW on the 12th July
after a domestic violence incident involving his fiancee Paige. GFW note that while “initial
reports unfairly characterized El Patron’s involvement in the incident in the Orlando
airport, we are nonetheless disappointed with the manor in which he dealt with this situation.”
Alberto remains suspended from the company. Ric Flair Hospitalised
In what was initially reported as ‘routine monitoring’, Ric Flair hospitalisation over
a heart-related issue at the weekend appears to be more serious, with his manager tweeting
last night: “Are u a Fan/Friend of Ric Flair?If so,
we need prayers & positive energy 4 our Living Legend as he is dealing w/some tough medical
issues🙏🏻” Has John Cena’s Raw return been leaked?
And remember when Mickey Rourke thought he was having a legit wrestling match with Chris
Jericho? Click the videos to the left to find out more, press subscribe and support WrestleTalk

  1. Prays for Flair and Fuck Alberto I don't think any one really likes the guy. He talks to much shit that he can't back up.

  2. Wee can only hope Ric gets better, the man has done great things for the business, in NWA, WCW, WWF, TNA, WWE and many more. Get well Ric.

  3. I really hope that Ric Flair will be okay after his surgery. I love Ric and would hate to see him go out like this. my prayers are with him and his family. get well soon Nature Boy. WOOOOO!!

  4. Why do the wrestling companies bring Del Rio in? He literally has some of the worst behaviour in history and could bring the buissness down as people may not like him working there. It's about time GFW release him and nobody else hire him maybe he can get good views on PPV or whatever but his bad behaviour ruins that

  5. Prayers for Ric flair and his family! Don't care too much for Alberto El patron getting stripped of his title! Don't watch GFW too much anymore for good reason! Letting good Superstars go week after week!

  6. ⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ says:

    Well when I saw how he performed deadlift I am surprised he is not dead yet

  7. What a load of bullshit. People go online to talk crap about Alberto because they ASSUMED he was to blame for the airport incident. These idiots didn't care that he was actually innocent of any wrong doing and decided to spread rumors anyway went lead to him being suspended for no reason except hearsay from idiots on the internet. Now they find out that perhaps they jumped the gun on suspending him so they will make it right, right? NO! They had to make up some other bullshit to keep him suspended so they do not look bad. Seems no one cares about the fact that he wasn't charged with a crime as long as he was found guilty on social media is good enough for them.

  8. Wait…what about Morrison's masterful performance in the 2017 film and (hopefully) penultimate entry into the franchise, 'Sharknado 5: Global Swarming'?

  9. Ric Flair is set to take on Death itself in a no holds barred, last man standing match for the WCW championship. Come on Nature Boy, WOOOOOOO!!!

  10. Flair is the best of all time. Took over the territories, NWA, WWF/E,WCW, TNA, everything.
    Cena must never break his record.

  11. Vacant has now held the WWE, WCW, ECW, NWA, AWA, IWGP, AJPW Triple Crown, TNA, and GFW chanpionship. And that's just some of its accomplishments. What a legend.

  12. Prayers to the Flair family, we love you Ric! El Patron is a train wreck, so sad! Mundo to GFW is a worry, I don't want to see Lucha Underground die!

  13. Get better soon Ric Flair!

    And.. Good. Del Rio deserves nothing. He's boring, & is a ignorant piece of crap.

  14. lol alberto.. can clearly see him beating paige up for this and breaking up in few months, and i hope i'm not wrong.

  15. John Morrison was a guest on one of Jericho’s podscasts team tiger awesome and he all but confirmed he’s going to gfw. Maybe even as Johnny Camero lol

  16. Thoughts and prayers with the Legend The Dirtiest Damn player in the Game Ric Flair. Have EL patron Serve pennants by dropping down a division maybe the X division or Grand Championship for a while. Would like to EC3, Eli Drake and James storm battle for the WHC can't wait to see John a million names Morrison in GFW Impact

  17. Morrison and Hardy had some great matches. Morrison is a great entertainer, doubt he'd ever come back to WWE but hopefully somewhere a bit more mainstream

  18. I don't quite understand why Alberto was stripped when all the news I have read says he was the victim of domestic violence… not sure how he 'deaslt' with things that upset GFW. But screw then anyway, hate the way they are dealing with the Hardy's and others, demanding a percentage of all money earned.

  19. Jeff Jarrett… if this is a doublecross of Lucha Underground by your own promotion that is an absolutely terrible idea.
    You should really try to maintain good working with relationships with non-WWE promotions rather than fighting each other.

  20. Rebranding as GFW might be a mistake cuz alotta people remember the pyramid scheme Jarrett tried 2 rope them into a while back

  21. My full support and prayers go out to Ric Flair, Hope the Nature Boy pulls through! He still has countless Wooooo's to give to the world yet!

  22. Hopefully death puts over the young talent ric flair, and hopefully ric gives death the most painful chops ever.
