FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 23, 2009

We’ve had several inquiries since Ric Flair began to appear frequently on RAW again as to whether or not Ric is still available for appearances outside of WWE, so here’s a statement from The Man himself:

"I will always be a part of the WWE family, however I am still anxious to get out there and meet my fans in person. I have had a great time doing just that since my retirement! My agent is currently negotiating appearances across the US and several abroad that will allow me to meet my fans around the world. I am very excited about these new opportunities! WooooOOOooo!"

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase will no longer be referred to as "Priceless," and will now only be referred to as "Legacy" when competing as a tag team. WWE issued an order to all announcers recently alerting them of the change.
