Ric Flair is reportedly getting divorced from his fourth wife, Jacqueline Beems. Flair is able to sign with WWE starting on September 10th, though that date may end up getting pushed back due to legal issues regarding the TNA/WWE lawsuit. WWE wants to wait to sign anyone associated with TNA (Flair, Shelley, Morgan, etc.) until the lawsuit is over.
The company is said to be considering ways to use him, with a managerial role for Dolph Ziggler being a possibility still.
