Netflix & FOX Interested in Potential “Real Housewives of Wrestling” TV Series
A recent episode of the To Be The Man podcast featured co-host Ric Flair stating that both Netflix and FOX are currently interested in a potential new wrestling-based television series.
Flair claimed that this new series would be similar to Bravo’s Real Housewives TV series and would revolve around real-life wrestling couples.
“You’re not going to believe this. I hope this isn’t breaking news. FOX and Netflix are looking at picking up the ‘Housewives of Wrestling.’ It’s Randy’s wife [Kim Orton], Kurt’s wife [Giovanna Angle], Wendy [Barlow], and Jake Hager’s wife [Catalina Hager]. The reel came out so good. They’re looking at it.
Here’s another one, and why I’ve got to be able to myself. She just got a check to write her life story with me. Yeah, they gave her a hell of a bump up front. This damn documentary got everybody talking.”

“Superstar” Billy Graham Health Update – Graham Hospitalized Again
As noted before, WWE Hall of Famer Superstar Billy Graham is currently dealing with a bone infection that has spread to his bone ears and portion of his skull.
Graham’s wife Valerie recently provided a health update on Facebook stating that Graham has been hospitalized again due to his ongoing health issues. Graham’s wife also stated that Graham’s insurance recently ran out of money due to the growing costs to cover his stay at a rehab center and they will now need to pay out of pocket to continue his rehab treatment.
A GoFundMe fundraiser was setup recently to help provide financial assistance for Graham’s family for his medical costs.
Fans and friends, the following are condition reports I have received from Billy’s wife Valerie. Please consider contributing to their gofundme; today is the last day their insurance will cover the cost of the rehab center. They will now have to pay 200 a day out of pocket. Thanks everyone, and God bless.
“Please pray…they have called an ambulance to take Wayne back to the Mayo…the nurse clean them dressing on his pic line this morning and apparently didn’t do something right because now it’s coming out.
I know that God has him and he is under the Lords protection “
So the first procedure took place at 3am but was unsuccessful. They scheduled him another type of procedure to insert the pic line for 7am but it was delayed… we were both beyond exhausted but God and is infinite mercy was on us once again! They just got him back in his room about an hour ago with a pic line successfully placed!
They said the way the original pic came out could have killed him… but our Lord had other plans
And last but not least….some of his hearing has returned!!!!!!
Yes I have to talk loudly and very very close to his ears but he can hear me for the first time in almost 2 months I am so grateful and blessed to have you all in my life
That would be great. I start paying the $200 a day tomorrow. Thanks Mike we just got back to the nursing facility”

Tokyo Sports held a recent interview with Tonga. One of the topics discussed included Tonga’s thoughts on the future of his wrestling career and interest in a potential career in WWE.
“I’m always the guy at the top. Look what I have accomplished in my short career in Japan. I started the best unit ever, the Bullet Club. I was ostracized. Nobody believed me. But that’s okay. All you need is yourself. All you need is to believe in yourself. I will be the best wrestler. It could be the ultimate legend of New Japan Pro Wrestling, or it could be WWE, because WWE is knocking hard on my door. And I might say, ‘Hello.”
