Ric Flair knows exactly why the WWE doesn’t use him more but wishes that they would.
Via Burton Mail,
“I appear on WWE programming about eight or nine times a year now. I think I could offer more and I think the management would like to use me more but it is about the others that have to follow me that they have to consider as well. I can be a very tough act to follow. I can still be active and will be for many more years to come, but they also have to take into account the other superstars at the same time.”
There you go. Flair believes he is just too tough of an act to follow so the WWE holds him off television because of fear that their other stars wouldn’t be able to follow him. I don’t know if that’s the reason. I would bet it has more to do with the WWE being careful in the way they use their older stars. I mean, Flair always looks like he is about to keel over and after what happened with Lawler, they cannot afford another incident like that. Flair doesn’t know how to do anything without going 100%, so there is something to him being active out there. I hope to see him if Charlotte gets called up to the main roster to give her some shine.
