Looks like WWE is releasing Ric Flair, as of January the 1st. More news (and a quick edit) once i can corroborate this, although the source i got it from is pretty damn reliable for backstage gubbins.

 

Its obviously to do with his recent legal shenanigans, if its true (kinda hope it isnt, would be a very sad way to end the great mans career) what does everyone think?

I do have a source, but its another, american site, and im not sure about the whole advertising thing, thats why im saying, i'll try and corroborate it. It is usually pretty good though, and frankly, if these accusations do stick, it wouldnt surprise me if he DID get released.

It once seemed fitting to feature pro wrestler Ric Flair, one of the Carolina area’s most well-known celebrities, in a public service announcement for the NFL’s Carolina Panthers.

 

But, in the wake of his road rage charges, the team is no longer interested in featuring Flair in the home game scoreboard announcement that encouraged fans to act responsibly. He did not appear in the message that aired this weekend.

 

If the allegations hold up, Flair’s words would be nothing short of hypocritical. The wrestler is accused of assaulting a 29-year-old driver and his car.

 

“We didn’t want the message to be lost because of the circumstances of last week,” Panthers spokesman Charlie Dayton said.

I so want his gone - he is old' date=' flabby and poor in the ring (now a days) oh please tell me its confirmed!![/quote']

 

yeh he's old and his in-ring work wasnt what it used to be, but for the pure fact that he's Ric Flair is the reason why i dont want this rumour to be true.
