Legendary Hall of Famer Ric Flair is scheduled to make his first appearance on WWE Raw since January.  

PWInsider.com's Mike Johnson notes that Flair is scheduled to appear on this Monday's edition of the flagship show:

Ric Flair has been booked to return to WWE this Monday on Raw in St. Louis, PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources within the company.

With Evolution having been reunited, the role for him seems to be clear, but we'll see for sure on Monday.

Triple H later confirmed the appearance on his Twitter account:

Flair was, of course, a member of Evolution during the group's original run in the early '00s. Mostly, he just stuck to managing the other guys at ringside, although he did occasionally get into the ring.

When Triple H, Dave Batista and Randy Orton reformed the group a few weeks ago, his absence was notable but perhaps not surprising.

Flair's private life over the last few years has been well documented. The legend has faced personal loss, divorce and legal problems

Then there was the now-infamous WWE 2K14 press conference last August in which the visibly inebriated star completely hijacked the show. As F4WOnline.com (via WrestlingInc.com) mentioned, WWE officials were absolutely livid after the event was over.

Basically, while he may be an asset to television and someone the fans absolutely love seeing on their screens, the company probably felt it couldn't fully trust him in such a high-profile role, hence why he wasn't part of the Evolution comeback.

However, this upcoming appearance raises some questions: Has WWE come around to the idea of making him a regular onscreen character again, or will this just be a one-off?

Will Flair be a heel, or will he shun Triple H and his former teammates?
