There's been some speculation about Ric Flair appearing at Sunday's WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view to continue the angle from Monday's RAW with The Shield and Evolution.
Flair is headed to California for an autograph signing at a Frank & Son Collectibles show on Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles. According to someone close to Flair, his itinerary for the weekend has him flying straight from California back home to Atlanta, with no stop in New Jersey for Extreme Rules.
WWE could always request Flair at the last minute but as of this afternoon, he's not scheduled.

Midget wrestler Short Sleeve Sampson is booked for Sunday's WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view, likely in the WeeLC match between Hornswoggle and El Torito.
Sampson will likely be the special referee for that match.
We do know that WWE was looking at many other midget wrestlers & personalities, before they scheduled Sampson, so it's possible they have something planned with more midgets besides Sampson, Torito and Hornswoggle.
