Ricky Steamboat Jr., Ric Flair DVD News, Mickie James on USA
This is my first official news report in over 7 years. I want to thank totalwrestling.net for this opprtunity, and I am happy to be at the begining stages of this journey. Now to the news:
Ricky Steamboat Jr., son of the legendary Ricky Steamboat (Richard Blood), will compete in his first pro wrestling main event when he meets the masked Mr. Florida on an independent show Aug. 9 in Mooresville, N.C. Young Steamboat, last seen by wrestling fans as a youngster accompanying his dad to the ring a number of years ago, is being trained by George South — who, coincidentally, looks a lot like Mr. Florida.
Steamboat has been drawing rave reviews for his ring work and looks like a possible addition to the WWE ranks within the next couple of years. The elder Steamboat, now a producer with WWE, also will make an appearance on the Mooresville show.
Ric Flair’s new DVD debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Recreational Sports Top 10 listings. The Rock’s DVD followed at No. 2.
WWE diva Mickie James will appear on a roller derby-themed episode of USA network’s “Psych” on Sept. 6
