EXCLUSIVE

Ric Flair says there's one way to beat the cowards responsible for the terrible Manchester Attacks ... SHOW UP ... telling TMZ Sports we can't be afraid to go to big events.

As we reported, the WWE is looking into whether a live event scheduled for June 6 at Manchester Arena will still take place ... saying they were consulting with authorities before making the call.

In the wake of the attack, the NBA and law enforcement has ratcheted up security for the NBA Playoffs ... and that's sure to make some fans wonder if the risk is worth leaving the house.

We talked to Flair in NYC, and he very passionately told us fans HAVE TO continue heading out to live events, because we can't let terrorists intimidate us from living our lives ... which is what they want.

Well said, Naitch.

EXCLUSIVE

WWE is consulting with local officials to determine if an NXT event at Manchester Arena in 2 weeks should be canceled after the terror attack ... WWE tells TMZ Sports.

NXT -- WWE's developmental promotion that has produced huge stars like Finn Balor, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins -- has a show scheduled for June 6th at the arena.

In light of the attack, WWE is consulting with Manchester officials to determine if they should call off the show.

A rep for WWE tells us, "WWE offers its heartfelt condolences to those affected by this tragedy. We are working with local authorities on the appropriate course of action as it relates to our event scheduled for Tuesday, June 6 at the Manchester Arena."

The Manchester event is part of a weeklong tour across the pond that also includes stops in Leeds and Brighton.  

X-Pac Takes Lie Detector Test ... Over Meth Arrest

5/19/2017 6:26 AM PDT
Breaking News

WWE legend X-Pac -- real name Sean Waltman -- is so determined to prove he's not a meth dealer, he took a lie detector test and passed with flying colors ... but there's a catch. 

We broke the story, X-Pac was arrested at LAX on April 29 after drug dogs found pills in his luggage that officials believed to meth. He was booked for possession of narcotics with intent to sell. 

X-Pac previously claimed the pills were NOT meth, but instead a non-meth medicine used to treat a yeast infection.

To prove his story, X-Pac invited polygraph examiner Rachel Levi to his show, "X-Pac 12360," on Afterbuzz TV to put him through the ringer. 

The problem for X-Pac ... the science behind polygraph tests is widely disputed and the results are not admissible in court. 

So, while it's cool to see X-Pac pass, he's definitely not out of the woods legally and still has a battle ahead of him. Of course, the whole point will be moot if investigators test the pills and they REALLY aren't meth.

Marlon Wayans believes he's gotten to the root of why ex-WWE star Cameron doesn't date black men -- and let's just say size matters. 

As we previously reported, Cameron -- real name Ariane Andrew -- says she's not racist, she's just more attracted to white men. She says it's simply a personal preference. 

But Marlon says it's deeper than that ... pointing out that Cameron experiences a lot of physical pain as a wrestler -- "she don't want it in her vagina, too!" 

Stereotypes -- they're great when they're about big penises.

(Note: we have no idea why our photog even posed that question but she went with it.)

WWE superstar Titus O'Neil allegedly flipped out and kicked the crap out of a WWE cameraman after a prank gone wrong for a YouTube show ... and now he's being sued. 

Donald Anderson says he was hired to work on the WWE Network show "Swerved" -- which features WWE superstars getting punked by other wrestlers and staffers.

In his lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ Sports, Anderson says he was shooting on May 18, 2015 when Titus was selected as a target for an electric shock prank. 

It was all supposed to be good fun, but when Titus got zapped, the WWE superstar lost his mind -- and kicked the camera out of Anderson's hand. 

Anderson says he was seriously injured during the incident -- suffering major damage to his hand, fingers and wrist. He says he was told to leave the premises immediately "in fear of the possibility of further attacks by Titus."

Anderson is now demanding more than $1.2 MILLION in damages. 

We reached out to Titus for comment -- so far, no word back. 

X-Pac Suspected Of Dealing Meth After Sniffed Out by Drug Dogs

EXCLUSIVE

X-Pac had so much meth on him when he was busted at LAX this weekend, officials say they believe the intent was to sell it overseas ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

As we previously reported, the WWE legend was arrested on April 29 before boarding an international flight to the U.K. -- and now, we've learned it was the airport drug sniffing dogs that did him in. 

Turns out, X-Pac -- real name Sean Waltman -- was on a Customs and Border Patrol watch list for narcotics (presumably due to his history of drug-related arrests). 

When the wrestler went through customs, his name was flagged and a drug dog was dispatched to search his bags. The dog alerted the humans to a hit and his bags were searched. 

According to the police report, officials found a whole bunch of drugs -- including 3 Cannibis chocolate bars, 2 THC liquid cigarettes, 38 meth/Amphetamine capsules. He also had $736.10 in cash.Officials determined "the large quantity of pills plus the large quantity of U.S. currency are associated with narcotics sales."

He was booked for possession of narcotics with intent to sell -- a felony. If convicted, he could face up to 4 years in prison. 

We reached out to X-Pac's camp. So far, no word back.

Shaquille O'Neal says WWE is squarely to blame for dropping the ball on his highly anticipated WrestleMania 33 matchup with Big Show ... saying, "They messed it up."

The 7-footers had been calling each other out for months in the hopes of colliding in the squared circle at the biggest wrestling event of the year ... but it didn't happen.

Shaq opened up about the situation on "The Big Podcast with Shaq" on PodcastOne and pointed his extremely large finger at Vince McMahon's people.

"They kept playing," Shaq said ... "First, they said it was me and Big Show. Then, they said it was going to be 3-on-3. Then, they canceled it so when they canceled it, I made other arrangements."

Shaq says WWE called him back and tried to get a deal done -- but by then it was too late.

"I just said, ‘I’m not going to do it.’ They messed it up."

Shaq's co-host, John Kincade, asked if he was afraid WWE wasn't going to script him to win the match -- and Shaq shot that down saying he's DEFINITELY willing to take a loss "for the kids."
