-On today’s Busted Open episode, Bruce Prichard said he saw Undertaker over the Thanksgiving holiday and he looked great, but Undertaker told him he is not wrestling again. “I thought he looked the best I’ve seen him in 10  years, he said he felt better than he’s felt in 10 years,” he said. “He looked fabulous.” Prichard elaborated, though, that he insisted to him at that time that he’s wrestled his last match and that he didn’t want to get back in the ring. Prichard was quick to point out that he’s heard this many times before from the Undertaker. In fact, he says he then told Taker: “Man, you’ve been telling me this for the last 15 years.” Listen to the clip HERE.

-WWE sent out a press release today noting that this Monday, WWE once again will salute Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during Raw on USA Network at 8 ET/7 CT in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. A preview of the tribute video is available HERE.
