WWE is reportedly in talks with Ric Flair about coming to terms on a new deal that has been described as a situation where they can use him for P.R. purposes to represent the company according to a new report by Dave Meltzer. They had approached him about taking on a similar deal like this back in 2008 and Flair opted to leave the company and go out on his own. The belief is that if he came to terms on a new deal that they wouldn’t want him associated with outside projects like the lottery.
