According to sources, there are currently negotiations going on between WWE and Ric Flair about the possibility of the double-WWE Hall Of Fame inductee signing a new deal with the company.

Apparently, if he re-signs, WWE is interested in using Flair in a role where he can be used by the company for promotional purposes, as well as having him around to move new Flair-related merchandise.

The only negative, as far as Flair's side of the deal is concerned, is that WWE wouldn't want him associating himself with projects such as the North Carolina lottery, which is a simple gig that has earned "The Nature Boy" a nice chunk of change.
