Lock away the fine china: WWE have announced that Ric Flair will celebrate his 70th birthday on Monday Night Raw in two weeks' time.
WWE.com acknowledged The Nature Boy's predilection for, shall we say, rambunctious parties ahead of the big bash in Atlanta, GA's State Farm Arena on 25 February:
"The Nature Boy’s parties are never modest, so we can only imagine what lavish festivities are in store … and which Superstars and WWE Legends will drop in for some stylin’ and profilin’."
Flair's last WWE appearance came during a live sing-song with Elias during November's Starrcade special. He had been scheduled to join Hulk Hogan in eulogising close friend 'Mean' Gene Okerlund last month, but was not present on the night. Slick Ric hasn't been seen on Raw or SmackDown since he joined former Evolution buddies Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista as part of the SmackDown 1000 celebrations on 16 October.
Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know).
He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
