As of right now there is no tangible update on Ric Flair other than things are better than they were a few weeks ago. As we reported Flair did an autograph signing in Orlando in conjunction with WrestleMania tickets going on sale this Saturday. During the signing he appeared to be happy and said everything is fine and he is still with WWE. He has spoke with Vince since their not-so-pleasant meeting several weeks ago and has expressed interest in ending his career the way it should be done.
Right now Flair is very busy getting his new business going, thus he is not expected to be on television anytime soon. Right now the tone seems to indicate, he will have a final run leading toward a retirement angle next year, but nothing as far as when it will happen has been decided upon. His autograph session was his first appearance with WWE since August.
