Ric Flair back on WWE payroll


The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Ric Flair has signed a new contract with the WWE, months after he was going to get one before making some mistakes at the SummerSlam weekend which eventually sent him packing back home.

According to the Observer, although Flair is allowed to work outside WWE, future appearances and business deals have to go through WWE from now on and if his presence is requested at a WWE event and it conflicts with a prior non-WWE booking, the WWE event will take preference and he has to cancel his other gig.

The two-time WWE Hall of Famer has appeared several times on WWE television since he left TNA back in 2012, most recently at the January 6 Old School RAW.
