WWE is still working with Ric Flair even without a contract in place. WWE wants to sign him and it's possible a deal will be made in the next few weeks. TNA is also interested in getting Flair back but he will appear with WWE for the next few months.
Flair's appearance on Miz TV was to help The Miz solidify as a babyface and for Flair to "give" him the Figure Four leg lock as his finishing move. He told Miz backstage: "I hope they let you beat people with it because I never did."
A source says that Miz and Flair will appear together again.
