After learning that Steve Austin left the building on Mon without informing management, Vince Mc Mahon approached Ric Flair with the idea to turn Flair face to take over as Austin's replacement at the upcoming house shows. In order to do this, Flair agreed to lose the ownership to Vince. There is speculation that a new ownership angle may be done, but there are no hard plans in place for that now. The promotion will continue to be run as two separates, with the Raw crew and the Smackdown crew.....TAPING RESULTS FROM LAST NIGHT IN GREENVILLE, SC : WWE Velocity : Billy/ Chuck d Orton/ Henry... Angle d Hardcore Holly... Knoble d Funaki... Rikishi d Albert.....WWE Smackdown :
