Some notes on Ric Flair leaving WWE:
– Jim Ross has commented on the situation here.
– Mike Johnson at PWInsider.com has posted the following email that Flair’s representatives at The Gillespie Agency sent to indie promoters that had previously been told Flair couldn’t make appearances: “Ric Flair is no longer under contract with WWE. It was a friendly parting which will allow Ric to pursue things that were rejected by WWE in the past. And it will mean a more streamlined process than ever before. Just you guys and me and Ric. Let’s pull something together and make some money!”
– Mike also posted this statement from Flair, received through the agency: “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!
