If you're fan of old dudes fighting, you may want to get to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on July 23...

Back story - Cary Silkin owned Ring of Honor (ROH) before it was sold to its current owners, Sinclair Broadcasting. He's still employed as an "Ambassador".

During the time when Silkin owned the promotion and they were broadcast on HD Net (now AXS TV), WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was hired to act in that same role at live shows and on their television show.

According to a lawsuit ROH filed against Naitch back in 2010, Flair took a $10,000 advance for a house show in Montreal that he no-showed. He also accepted $35,000 for television appearances where he was to play an authority figure role, but only appeared on one episode - saying he'd learned his relationship with WWE prohibited him from playing that part.

The case was dropped by Sinclair when they bought ROH in 2011, but Silkin has remained adamant he's still owed the money.

Now, it looks like he's going to confront Ric at an autograph signing at the Sands Casino in Eastern Pennsylvania in a couple months.
