After speaking with sources, WZ has learned there has been some consideration in creative on how to use Ric Flair if he is to sign some kind of contract with WWE.
The popular discussion has been for Ric Flair to be used as a manager for Dolph Ziggler.
Right now, the task at hand is to negotiate with Flair a legends contract as well as a talent contract to compensate him for his work for whatever time he would be on television weekly as a manager for Ziggler.
It seems WWE creative is going in the direction of having Ziggler with a manager regardless, as Mason Ryan is being kept in the conversation, potentially if Flair doesn't end up in the role with Ziggler.
One source did say there is also some hesitation among some in WWE as to whether they want to bring Flair in for a weekly role. While Flair is always respected for who he is, his age as well as his history of going off script at times and doing things his way has been brought up as concerns in the Ric Flair creative discssion.
Again, nothing at the current time has been signed and put in place but we're told this is being entertained as a serious possibility if all negotiations get finalized.
WZ will continue to follow the story and bring you the latest.
