Ric Flair is booked to appear at the upcoming RAW and Smackdown tapings on 1/21 in San Jose and 1/22 in Sacramento. Flair will then leave to Japan to make appearances for All Japan Pro Wrestling. According to a report by Dave Meltzer, Flair is working on a per-night deal with WWE and is not under contract. This allows Flair to take bookings with independent promotions and other outside appearances like All Japan. TNA is still sending feelers to him following his appearances on WWE television.
