Reason Ric Flair Was Pulled From SmackDown, Update On His WWE Status

Ric Flair was originally scheduled to be part of this past Tuesday’s edition of WWE SmackDown in North Carolina, however WWE ended up re-writing the show on Tuesday morning and Flair wasn’t brought in.

The original plan for Flair was for him to be used on television on a weekly basis, however that may not be the case anymore. While Flair did sign a new deal and is expected to be a semi-regular presence on television, it appears that WWE’s creative team has yet to find a role for Flair to fulfill.
