WWE Ric Flair

Ok, so here’s an interesting story. It started with this on WWE.com
Flair and WWE Part Ways
Written: August 3, 2008

WWE and Hall of Famer Ric Flair have mutually agreed to contractually part ways. After an extraordinary career Ric has chosen to pursue opportunities outside of WWE.

Then we started to hear reports claiming that Ric Flair is going through some personal problems, but we’ve got no confirmation on what the problems actually are.

In Charlotte, NC last night Ric Flair discussed his upcoming appearance at the NWA Legends convention. And the neat part is now that Ric Flair and World Wrestling Entertainment have parted ways, the door is now open for TNA to step in and grab Flair. His WWE release does have the 90 day clause so unless things change, he will not be able to do certain bookings until the 90 days are up.

And the story continues with Ric Flair releasing the following statement:

“WWE and I parted on the best of terms. This gives me the chance to pursue new opportunities…corporate speaking engagements, product sponsorships, autograph shows for my loyal fans (who made me what I am today) and film and television roles. My agent and I are very excited about what the future holds!”

Wrestling promoters interesting in booking Flair should contact his agent, Elaine Gillespie. She also coordinates bookings for “Rowdy” Roddy Piper as well as SmackDown announcer Mick Foley. Here is her contact information and e-mail address for promoters interesting in booking the one and only Ric Flair.
