UPDATE: Fightful Select has more on the story of Ric Flair leaving WWE. It was noted that Flair had been growing frustrated with booking decisions on the show and talked to Vince McMahon about it directly. It was then that he asked for his release. While Flair hasn’t been on TV in some time, the booking issues he didn’t like were recent.

Original: Both Wrestling Inc and Fightful reports that Ric Flair is no longer a part of the WWE, although the company has yet to confirm the news at this time. Flair reportedly asked for his release and it was granted as of today. He previously re-signed with WWE last year.

He was involved in a storyline with Lacey Evans and Charlotte earlier this year, but it was dropped once Evans announced that she was pregnant. Flair said earlier this year that he wasn’t comfortable with the storyline.
