Booker T Believes Ric Flair Will Return To The Ring Outside WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has revealed he believes Ric Flair is looking to return to wrestling following his WWE release.

Ric Flair wrestled his last official match against Sting for TNA in 2011. According to Booker T, we could see Flair compete again, now he’s no longer with WWE.

Speaking on the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T pointed out that Flair is still a “party guy”. Revealing what Flair told him in regards to his retirement, Booker T said:

“My thing is this, and I’m going to let you take this into the break, Ric Flair is not the managerial type of guy. It’s just not his role. As well as, Ric Flair is not one of your guys that wants to be in the office, coming to work every day, wearing a suit and going into the office. That’s not Ric Flair. Ric Flair’s a party guy. That’s just his nature. You saw him on Triller, he’s all about having some fun.

“Now my thing is this, I talk to Ric Flair on a regular — usually on a regular occasion, I don’t know how often I’m going to see him now, but Ric Flair told me, he said, ‘Book, I’m never going to retire.’ He said, ‘If I could be in that ring right now, that’s where I’d be.’ So I think Ric Flair may be looking at one last run.”

It has been speculated that Flair could appear for AEW in some capacity in the future. Numerous AEW stars had previously taken to Twitter to comment on Flair’s WWE release.
