• BREAKING NEWS: Ric Flair Released From WWE
The legendary Ric Flair re-signed with WWE last year, but he’s done with them.
According to Wrestlinginc, Flair asked for his release from WWE and they have granted it.
Raj Giri teased this news yesterday, by saying that a big name who hasn’t been active in a while asked for his release and the wish was granted.
Flair was last seen on WWE programming earlier this year, where he was involved in somewhat of a romantic relationship with Lacey Evans on RAW. However, that storyline ended with Lacey’s real-life pregnancy.
Earlier today, PWInsider reported that ring announcer JoJo Offerman was quietly released from WWE 6-8 months ago.
JoJo is Bray Wyatt’s girlfriend and they have two kids together. Wyatt was released from WWE a couple of days back.
WWE quietly released Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett earlier this year as well. He was working as a backstage producer.
