Backstage Update On Ric Flair’s Status As A Regular Character On WWE TV
According to sources within WWE, the company has yet to come up with anything that would begin Ric Flair as a regular weekly character on television.
The last time Flair was on RAW in Richmond, Virginia, which was an in-ring interview segment with Renee Young, he was scripted to hit on her the way that he did. In fact, the only ad-lib Flair added was the references to his past in the city, where he told fans to “ask your mothers and fathers.”
The Richmond edition of RAW was originally going to be the beginning of Flair’s return as a regular television character, however the creative team has yet to come up with anything for him.
As noted in the past, Flair was at one point going to serve as the manager for The Miz, however those plans are now said to be completely off the table.
