Wrestling legend Ric Flair could be returning to the WWE, according to reports from The Wrestling Observer.

The only double WWE Hall of Famer in history is currently in negotiations with the company over a new contract.

Flair, who wrestled his last WWE match in 2008, would be signed to the same legend contract that fellow Hall of Famers Mick Foley and Shawn Michaels are currently signed to.

The odds of Flair returning to the ring for one final WWE match are extremely slim to none, as Vince McMahon would not be happy with the look of 64-year-old Flair.

Flair, who had legendary feuds with Sting and Hulk Hogan, is reportedly interested in signing a new WWE deal but is said to be apprehensive due to his association with projects outside of the WWE. 

He currently has a deal with the North Carolina lottery which earns him a lot of money for little work, but the WWE would likely be unwilling to allow Flair to continue that job.

Flair has appeared for the WWE on very few occasions since returning in December, but would appear more often if he does sign a new deal.

WWE is interested in Flair doing promotional work for the company and appearing on shows emanating for his home state of North Carolina, to draw a larger crowd, in the same way Bret Hart often appears at shows in Canada.

If Flair does re-sign the immediate impact would be a barrage of new Flair related merchandise.
