-- Ric Flair is expected to be brought back to television within the next few weeks. More than likely it will be a one-time appearance to promote the release of his next DVD, but a regular role shouldn't be ruled out.

-- Even though he's been living in the country since 1992, WWE Raw star William Regal is still not a legal U.S. citizen. A third strike on the Wellness Policy could be potentially devastating as he would be forced to be terminated from the company and in danger of not being able to stay in the country if he is unable to find a new full-time job.

Every other time Regal was let go, he would quickly get back on his feet and land a new job with another wrestling company within mere months if not weeks. After being let go from WCW in early 1998, he quickly landed a job with WWE. After being let go from WWE in April 1999, Regal landed a job with WCW two months later. After being let go from WCW in February 2000 because they had nothing for him, Regal was quickly hired by WWE and sent to Memphis Championship Wrestling for a short time before re-debuting in September of that year.

Nowadays, Regal's only other options are TNA and possibly Ring of Honor as they're pretty much the only U.S. companies signing wrestling talent for full-time work. It's possible that TNA could hire Regal, but that's far from a guarantee. If Regal were to be fired from WWE, it's either find a job with one of those two companies if he wants to continue wrestling, or possibly start looking for a new line of work.

After being let go from WWE in late 2006, Psicosis -- who is not a legal U.S. citizen -- was unable to land a job stateside and so he headed back to Mexico. Back in March, Psicosis got caught crossing the border to work an indy wrestling show using tourist papers. The authorities took away his tourist papers and he was deported back to Mexico as a result.

-- Dusty Rhodes, who is running things on the creative side in WWE's developmental league Florida Championship Wrestling, is said to be high on wrestler Jake Hagar, the promotion's current champion.
