Update On Ric Flair Being Bumped From SmackDown, Latest On His Status

Ric Flair was booked for both RAW and SmackDown last week, but ended up not being used on SmackDown in his old stomping-grounds of Fayetteville, nor brought back on this Monday’s RAW.

WWE creative reportedly has nothing for Flair at the moment, which is why he hasn’t returned as a regular character as he is scheduled to do.

As noted in the past, Flair has requested to work with Dolph Ziggler, but WWE doesn’t seem to like that idea. At one point he was set to work with The Miz, however those plans were nixed as well. WWE is continuing to work on different ideas for “The Nature Boy.”
