WWE News: Ric Flair’s release came days after Bray Wyatt was shown the exit door

WWE has been on a mission of releasing employees. Yes, Ric Flair’s release came upon his own request, but WWE has been burying careers ever since the pandemic. In recent reports, it got revealed that Flair wasn’t happy with the last storyline he got out into involving Lacey Evans and his own daughter Charlotte Flair.

The storyline was nixed following Evans’ legitimate pregnancy. Ever since then, Flair showed disdain for the storyline and voiced out the same in interviews. He was unsure whether to do this storyline but agreed to do it because Vince convinced him.

Ric Flair in an interview with Ariel Helwani in May 2021, talked about his disagreement with the Lacey Evans’ storyline.

“In this instance, I didn’t [feel comfortable]. The one thing I have learned is you’re not going to win a war when someone’s got their mind made up. She most definitely didn’t like it, but the one thing that I can say about me is I always said yes. I didn’t want to be that guy that was always going ‘Oh, that isn’t perfect for me.’

“When that was all over, I was mad, but now I just look back and say it wasn’t it. This was something that when I got to TV, Mr. McMahon wasn’t there to argue the point with and he had stuff going on, I don’t like to put the pressure on someone if I can’t talk to him.”

Flair further added,

“He just made up his mind, I think a lot of it was because [Lacey] was a marine. God only knows we cannot give enough back to the people that serve in the military and I think he wanted her to be successful and the way to get successful sometimes is to take two people that are doing really well and give them the rub.”

Ric Flair has been an ardent contributor to this company back from WCW days. What will he bump into having been released now? We will keep you updated with the same. Till then, keep reading for more WWE News.
