Backstage News: Plans For Ric Flair’s Current WWE Run

Ric FlairCredit:

As we reported immediately following the Judgment Day PPV last night, Ric Flair is expected for tonight’s RAW.

Flair is back with WWE doing a short-term program for a number of reasons. He’s apparently been texting them about a come-back and as reported before, he does want to wrestle in the ring. As of now, it’s a mixed reaction in WWE as to whether or not Flair will be used as an active competitor in the ring.

Traditionally, Flair is considered a ratings draw and the RAW numbers have been in the toilet due to what WWE considers a lack of star power.

In addition to those reasons, WWE wants to keep Triple H off TV for several more weeks.
