Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer has a status update on Ric Flair and what his current standing is with WWE after it was revealed this week on RAW that he’d be captain of a heel-based team against Hulk Hogan when the company makes it’s way back to Saudi Arabia on Halloween for WWE Crown Jewel.

According to Meltzer in his latest Observer Newsletter, the issues between Flair and WWE over the rights to “The Man” are still there, but they are still working with “The Nature Boy” because he’s a major star for the Saudi show in addition to Fox wanting star cache. Meltzer states that WWE gives the impression that Flair doesn’t have a case, but there isn’t a point in making an enemy out of Flair because AEW would sign him up immediately.
