Inside The Squared Circle: Edge, Y2J, Ric Flair All Returning; Congressional Hearings, Imus Reference

So many three counts to report this evening so let's hop right to it.

- Edge will be returning tomorrow night at the Survivor Series pay-per-view after being out for a few months with an injury. Expect him to get involved in the "Hell in a Cell" match between Undertaker and World Champ Batista.

- As most of you know "Y2J"Chris Jericho will make his much-heralded return on Monday Night Raw at 9:28 p.m. this Monday. You know where I'll be...

- Meanwhile, Ric Flair who has been off of television for several months after a blowup with Vince McMahon regarding the "Nature Boy's" roll with the W.W.E., will return to action a week from this Monday when Raw comes to Flair's hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. I, and most fans, are still hoping for one more great run for Ric Flair before the 57-year-old legend retires.

- Some of you may be wondering about the injured Bobby Lashley. Word is that his return will come at the beginning of 2008, perhaps not until the Royal Rumble.

- Congress is going to have hearings on steroid use after all. The House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold those hearings in January and will focus on baseball and pro wrestling. The push came from Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL) on the heels of the Barry Bonds' indictment.

- T.N.A.'s Christian Cage referred to Booker T's wife Sharmell as a "nappy headed ho" at a recent t.v. taping. Booker T and Sharmell recently signed on with the promotion after "King" Booker got a 60-day suspension from the W.W.E. for violating their wellness policy. Instead of returning to the W.W.E. after serving his suspension, the former World Champion decided to jump to Total Nonstop Action(TNA). Most people know that those words got Don Imus in a whole heap of trouble. No word if Rev. Al Sharpton will be showing up at T.N.A.'s Impact Zone in Orlando, Florida, to confront Christian Cage.

Keep it in the Ring!
