There is a lot of talk going around the wrestling world that Ric Flair will be back with WWE in 2013, especially if the network gets off the ground since a lot of his footage will be used and he's very popular with the public.
Flair's deal with TNA expires at the end of this year.
Flair is exactly what the WWE needs to help put over the young stars. Not many in the history of wrestling could match Flair. Some consider him the best wrestler of all time, and others only consider him the best heel of all time. Either way, when you think about wrestling, you think about Flair.
Something that separates the Nature Boy from most of the other wrestling legends is that he has a knack for putting young talent over. Nothing could be better for the WWE than a truly great wrestler putting one of their young stars over.
Flair and Triple H helped form one of the best stables in recent history with Evolution. From that stable, two of the biggest superstars of the new generation were born—Randy Orton and Batista. There are a couple of current superstars who could easily be the next Orton or Batista, but they do not have someone to help them get over.
Flair will be that guy.
Dolph Ziggler is the first name that comes to mind. Ziggler has it all, but he hasn't been given many chances to show what he can do. When he is given a chance, he either loses in a squash match, or he wins with the help of Vickie Guerrero.
Flair can easily put Ziggler over and help get him permanent main-event status. Not only can Flair help Ziggler, but he could even help Jack Swagger, Zack Ryder, and Drew McIntyre, and many more.
The WWE better hope that Flair shows up when his contract with TNA expires, because he will definitely speed up the WWE youth movement.
