• WWE Is Working With Ric Flair Again
Last year, Ric Flair asked for his release from WWE and he was granted it.
Flair was looking to join AEW and word going on was that he was going to be the Manager of his son-in-law, Andrade El Idolo.
However, due to the Plane Ride From Hell controversy caused by an episode of Dark Side Of The Ring, Tony Khan canceled the idea of signing Flair.
Also due to this controversy, WWE removed Flair’s iconic “Wooooo” sound from their TV show intro.
However, now that some time has passed, WWE is working with the 16-time World Heavyweight Champion again.
Below is what they tweeted:
“Woooo! Ric Flair, Tom Rinaldi and WWE enter partnership on an unprecedented 2 hour documentary featuring never-before-revealed history about the one and only Nature Boy!”
Flair is currently training for his final match, which will take place on July 31st.
