Earlier this year, Flair was involved in a pregnancy storyline with Lacey Evans. It was previously noted that Flair had contacted Vince McMahon personally and cited “creative decisions” as his desire to leave the company.
In a update, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has since reported additional details. On today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer stated that the release was “Vince’s decision” and that Flair’s complaints actually involved the booking of his daughter, Charlotte Flair and “her situation” and not his own.
As always, the staff here at eWN will provide any updates on this story as they become available.
