Backstage News on Ric Flair and The Miz, Flair’s Status

– Ric Flair is currently booked for the January 21st WWE RAW from San Jose, California and the January 22nd SmackDown tapings in Sacramento. The Rock is also booked for those two shows. Flair will leave for All Japan Pro Wrestling right after the SmackDown tapings.

Flair is still working on a per-night deal with WWE but could be signing something more solid soon. Believe it or not, TNA has sent feelers to Flair about coming back to their company and apparently they have been doing this since before their lawsuit against WWE was dropped this week.

Regarding Flair’s segment with The Miz on Monday’s RAW, it was designed to endorse Miz as a new babyface and to set up Miz using the Figure Four as his new finishing move. When he found out, Flair joked to Miz, “I hope they let you beat people with it because I never did.”

Flair will likely be working with Miz again at next week’s WWE TV tapings.

    I just feel that hardcore fans will hate Miz for using the figure 4. But the idea of Miz getting a Flair-like gimmick is interesting.

    Flair looked godawfull, I think he aged 20 years in TNA, he looks like he might die soon, and that segmant with him and Miz was lame beyond words.

    Even though Flair managing Ziggler sounds better, if Flair managed Miz that would still be pretty cool and could set up a Punk/Miz+Flair Feud.
