WWE.com is featuring an interview with Clay Matthews of the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers regarding his participation in the main event of Smackdown on Friday night.
“I’ve been a fan since I was a kid. Watching these guys growing up and then meeting some of them – it was like a childhood dream. I was a big D-Generation X fan with Triple H and HBK. (On using WWE belts) The league [NFL] office really didn’t like it. But we didn’t care, because we were having fun. It was fitting because we were world champions. That was his celebratory dance to let everyone know he had the title. It’s only right, bringing it out and letting everyone know who the real champs are. The Packer fans and the WWE Universe enjoyed it!” Read the full interview at WWE.com.
There remains no word on Ric Flair’s status with TNA Wrestling. TNA has the Against All Odds PPV this Sunday and two sets of tapings on Monday and Tuesday coming up this weekend. Flair was not at the last set of tapings following the European tour, a tour that Flair ended up suffering a torn rotator cuff on. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that no decision was made on whether or not Flair will undergo surgery for the injury.
