Ric Flair to the WWE Would be a Huge Mistake

You better believe it folks, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t E-Wrestling News), there are current negotiations going on between the Nature Boy Ric Flair and World Wrestling Entertainment. The last time we saw Flair in a ring, it was helping the Miz get over.

“Apparently, if he re-signs, WWE is interested in using Flair in a role where the company can use him for promotional purposes, as well as having him around to move new Flair-related merchandise,” the Wrestling Observer Newsletter read. “The only negative, as far as Flair’s side of the deal is concerned, is that the WWE wouldn’t want him associating himself with projects such as the North Carolina lottery, which is a simple gig that has earned ‘The Nature Boy’ a nice chunk of change.”

Don’t hate me if I call it a failure, because it was. He passed down his Figure-Four Leg Lock (the worst finisher all-time) to Miz, who was in desperate need of a change in character.

If Flair gets re-signed, then all hope in the WWE will be minimized yet again. There is absolutely NO reason to sign him back. The multi-inducted Hall of Fame wrestler has parted ways with the WWE before and we haven’t missed him for a single second.

Unless he comes back as a manager for a heel, then I don’t want any part of Naitsch’s antics. Judging by history, like I already mentioned, his stint with the Miz was horrible. I could barely watch. If you don’t believe me, here is the Miz and Flair dancing in the ring after a match on Raw.

Needless to say, I almost threw up watching. What are your thoughts on the matter Rant Sports fans? I think it would be very intelligent to have him be Ziggler‘s manager or an up and coming superstar’s mouthpiece.

Who would it be?

    oh god another Ziggler fan crying that Flair wasn’t his mentor. I can’t wit this.

      Am I crying? I’m rather stating he should have been.

        Why should he have been his mentor? It’s not like Dolph has the personality. The problem on this side is The Miz wasn’t pushed to be anything. They weren’t serious with his development. You can’t be when you’re putting him on preshows and hosting and having fans complain about it because he ain’t wrestling or is jobbing.

        On the other side Ziggler received the biggest story of his career. Making his own name and motto. Received 2 out of 3 of the greatest mark outs this year out of the last 10 yrs. of wrestling, the 3rd being Daniel Bryan. He wouldn’t have that moment had he had been Flair’s understudy. Look at Heyman with Perfect’s kid, now that Miz isn’t in that storyline hardly anybody cares. Sure you’ll get 1,000 loud IWC fans saying we have a legit I.C. champ but currently no one really cares.

    Ric Flair is still valuable and can do well in WWE. He is not going to wrestle again. He will be used to cash on his charismatic power. WWE could use him in the roles of a manager for some upcoming wrestler, or some stable. Or he can be used as mentor on NXT.
