Ric Flair Flair reveals he’s returning to WWE for Raw’s 30th Anniversary and Royal Rumble

Ric Flair and WWE are once again collaborating on an upcoming documentary, but Flair will soon be seen on WWE TV as well. During the last episode of his Being the man podcast, Flair and co-host Conrad Thompson discussed strong ticket sales for WWE’s Royal Rumble, and Flair said he’s curious to see what will happen to those ticket numbers once people find out “I’m gonna be there.” Thompson asked if that was okay to reveal, and he said, “Hell yeah. They didn’t say don’t tell anyone.” Also earlier that week is Raw’s 30th Anniversary episode, and it looks like he’s appearing on that as well.

“I was invited and it’s a ****** big deal…why? Because Raw, and it’s a ****** big deal. And I’m honored,” Flair said. “Hell yeah, are you kidding me? 30 years. Think about that. Remember [when] Nitro was just going to destroy Raw? I don’t even know how to spell Nitro anymore. Can you?”

Flair also said he plans to pay for a lot of alcohol at his party, adding: “For me it comes in on Sunday night. I’ll be looking for [Steve] Austin, Undertaker, John Cone, anyone in sight for a cold drink. And I’m going to buy.”

Flair hasn’t been seen on WWE TV since his release in August 2021, though he did have a great final match in Starrcast V. He was set to unveil a new partnership with WWE earlier this year, and now he’ll apparently be on hand for Raw’s 30th Anniversary and the Royal Rumble. That said, it’s not clear if he’ll feature in any other feuds or storylines during these appearances, but it should make for an even more enjoyable episode of Raw, and maybe Flair will appear in the actual Rumble royal match, though that is pure conjecture at this point.

Flair will also be part of A24’s The Iron Claw movie, though the real Flair won’t play him. That role goes to Aaron Dean Eisenberg (The Deuce).
