Wednesday News and Notes: Reid Flair, Khali's Translator, SmackDown in Miami

- WWE, on the heels of signing and using with a decent amount of success Dusty Rhodes' son, has signed another son of a in-ring star. Reports say that Reid Flair, son of Ric Flair, has been signed to a WWE developmental deal. Reid will report to Florida Championship Wrestling after the holidays. You might remember Reid if you watched some of the later years of WCW, as in one angle many would like to forget, he had his head shaved by Vince Russo back in 2000.

- The following is from www.f4online.com: Dave Kapoor a.k.a. Ranjin Singh, the translator for The Great Khali, was scolded by Stephanie McMahon on Monday night after Raw.

In the final segment on Raw where a bunch of people came out, drank drinks and pretty much broke kayfabe, Stephanie felt Kapoor was having too much fun. The broadcast showed a shot of him smiling and having a good time, just like most everyone else.

After the show, Stephanie called him over and told him that his behavior was highly unprofessional. She also intimated that if he didn't take "the job of a lifetime" seriously that he could very well be let go by WWE. Stephanie also added that someone on creative shouldn't be an on-screen character (he's a member of the creative team). Stephanie said that she went to bat for him in the past, and that he'd he better not screw it up.

- WWE has Smackdown/ECW tapings after Wrestlemania on 4/1 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.
