— As noted earlier, despite being kept off television, Ric Flair will continue on the road with WWE doing media appearances, autograph signings, trade shows, and other promotional events as a company representative. Flair will be able to make a significant amount of money doing these appearances. There are still no plans for Flair to return to television. He has turned down offers from WWE to be an announcer or work as a road agent.
