WWE has officially announced the release of the Nature Boy Ric Flair and after that, the latter took to his Twitter handle to comment on his release.
Yesterday we reported that Ric Flair requested his release from WWE and the company granted it. Today WWE made it official by releasing a statement.
Several reports are suggesting that the 16-time World Champion was not happy with certain bookings. He also texted Vince regarding the bookings of his daughter Charlotte. He also asked for his release to Vince Mcmahon himself which he approved.
WWE didn’t wish Ric Flair for his future endeavors like they usually did. However, Ric Flair cleared out this situation and stated that there is no animosity, it’s just that they had different visions.
In his statement, the Nature Boy also stated that he is not upset at all with the company and WWE is the only one responsible for his successful career. But currently, he and WWE have different visions for their future, so he has nothing but respect for the company.
It is speculated that Ric Flair might also end up in AEW and join other WWE legends like Sting and Christian there. He is also on good terms with AEW’s President Tony Khan, so it might happen in the near future.
