Ric Flair Says He Would Like To Return To WWE During Interview On Fox News

Ric Flair was on “Fox and Friends” on Fox News Tuesday morning as he was being interviewed because he is a Charlotte resident, where the 2012 Democratic National Convention is currently taking place. While the interview was mostly about politics, one of the anchors said they would like to see Vince McMahon bring Flair back to WWE. Flair responded by saying he would “like that too.”

Below is video of the appearance:


As we broke here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium in May, Flair was looking to return to WWE when he was still under contract with TNA Wrestling. The interest spawned a lawsuit by TNA Wrestling against WWE and former office employee Brian Wittenstein, with TNA making allegations of contract tampering. As a result, there has been a hiring freeze within WWE on hiring any TNA talent.

    Please God, no more Ric Flair.

    I’m not sure what people have against Flair and why they wouldn’t want him back in WWE, but its pretty ridiculous. The guy is a legend and with his talking ability still at a level most workers could only dream of achieving he’s still a valuable asset. I’ve said it before that I would love to see him back as the mouth piece for a new group of Horsemen or even as a manager for someone with ring skills, the look, but zero mic skills. WWE could even use him in his old role as an ambassador. Regardless he’s a valuable asset.

      and a waste of cash. He'll just probably ask more than what he only really deserved

      It's a step back, more nostalgia, when the WWE should be looking to the future and making new stars. Maybe Ric could be used as a mouthpiece, but they'd be better encouraging current stars to practice and improve their own mic skills instead of relying on others.
      I would love for him to have a backstage role, mentoring and teaching. The man is a legend, after all. I wouldn't want to see him on-screen on a regular basis in this stage of his career in this day and age.

      He is a valuable asset if used correctly. Unfortunately I think Ric's ego wouldn't allow him to settle into an off-screen role. Look at what happened the last time he tried to step away… huge retirement deal and an ambassador role, and he couldn't deal with the lack of limelight.

      Talking ability? Did you see the stumbling mess that his promos were in the last few years at TNA.

      The Ric Flair of today is not the Ric Flair of years gone by, hes unreliable (misses bookings), got off the field baggage (Domestic assault and divorce) and he can't work in the ring anymore (Or shouldn't).

      This is not the Ric Flair of the 1980's, this is a beaten up broken old man trying to cling on to his legend well past his prime.

    I would like to see him come back and show some of the cry babies why they aren't getting more air time and show them what charisma is really all about .

    Flair could come back and build a stable!
