PWInsider.com is reporting that two-time WWE Hall of Famer and sixteen-time World Champion “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair may be returning to the WWE sooner than later. “The Nature Boy” is currently employed by TNA Wrestling, but there is quite a bit of backstage heat on Flair for his behavior outside of the ring. As has been the case for most of Flair’s life and career, the Hall of Famer’s wild behavior has gotten him banned from several bars and restaraunts in the Orlando area as “The Nature Boy” has left tabs unpaid. Flair also caused some sort of incident at a local hotel that saw TNA pull Flair from appearing at their live events in the state of Louisiana, which included a taping of TNA Impact.
Those within TNA have stated that Flair’s behavior has been described as “being at the point it’s not worth keeping Flair around.” Impact’s home network, Spike TV, has also stated that they do not want Flair on their network in his current “condition”.
While there has been no official report on Flair parting ways with the company, those within TNA feel that he is done with the company and the company is done with him. Also, TNA is yet to comment on whether or not Flair has left.
In an update to this report, a few wrestling sites have heard that a top “legendary name” and current TNA star is looking to return to the WWE. Considering that WWE just signed Flair’s daughter, Ashley, to a developmental contract, it seems highly likely that “The Nature Boy” could be on his way back to the WWE (where he will undoubtedly make more money for doing less work).
