Flair was featured heavily in a storyline involving his daughter Charlotte Flair and his protege Lacey Evans earlier this year. He was also a prominent part of the storyline between Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton last year.
It was reported that Flair had some creative issues with Vince McMahon which led to him asking for his release. Speaking to People, Ric Flair himself clarified all the rumors about his release and gave the real reason:
"We(Him and Vince McMahon) just didn't see eye to eye on some business opportunities that I wanted to pursue, so I asked for my release. There has been no animosity and everything has been on friendly terms."
Flair also talked about his future and what he plans to do now that he is no longer under WWE contract:
"It was a mutually agreed-upon decision and I will be moving forward to pursue other exciting endeavors such as my own line of wine, my own network, as well as comic books. I had to make this decision personally for my business and my brand."
