After “Nature Boy” Ric Flair returned during the 2012 Slammy Awards, we can begin to speculate about his future in WWE. One scenario that WWE fans should be open to is seeing Flair as a manager.
Ric Flair is 63 years old, and WWE should not risk any Jerry Lawler-type incidents by having Flair wrestle. While he could become an authority figure on WWE TV, having him manage some young superstars would help benefit the future of WWE.
So which superstars would benefit most from having Ric Flair as their manager?
First, they need to be young and full of potential. Flair is not going to waste his time with jobbers who are not going anywhere—that is, unless he can bring them from jobber to top star. These superstars also need a gimmick or need to be given one that fits with Flair’s high-profiling ways.
With that said, here are five superstars (or tag teams/stables) who would improve their current situations in WWE with Ric Flair as their manager.
