It looks like hometown hero and WWE ICON Ric Flair will not be in attendance for the 49ers-Panthers playoff game:

In a statement, Ric Flair's agency says he has received death threats from Panthers fans following his 49ers pep talk

We don’t know if he was invited or not but I am sure this is related to his giving the pep talk to the 49ers last weekend before their game against the Packers that led to death threats from Panthers fans.
Hopefully this is just setting up a classic heel turn where he appears at halftime.
