According to PW Insider, it is unlikely Ric Flair will make his WWE return during tonight's (June 16, 2014) episode of Monday Night Raw, which is taking place at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
The reason? He wasn't in the script the creative team has worked up for the show.
That's always subject to change, of course, but as of right now at the very least it doesn't appear he'll be showing up tonight. There was some speculation that he would due to recent rumors suggesting he'll be working with The Miz upon his return.
And with Miz being away from TV for a while but finally ready to come back, and Cleveland being his hometown, well, it isn't hard to put two and two together.
Anything is possible, and "The Nature Boy" could very well grace our screens tonight, but don't be surprised if he doesn't. Still, he's in the plans for a regular role on WWE programming going forward and he'll be back sometime in the near future.
