Ric Flair, a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, will return to television in the new year. Flair announced that he will attend the Royal Rumble on January 28, 2023, as well as that he has been invited to Raw’s 30th Anniversary event five days before, as was disclosed on his podcast with Conrad Thompson.
“I’m going to be there [at the Royal Rumble]. They didn’t say don’t tell anybody. I have been invited and it’s a f–king big deal,” Flair said. “And for all the people out there who go why? Because it’s Raw and it’s a big f–king deal. Hell yeah, are you kidding me? 30 years, you think about that. Remember when Nitro was just going to destroy Raw? For me, [I’ll] be getting in there Sunday night, I’ll be looking for Austin, Undertaker, John Cone, anybody in sight for a cold beverage, and I’ll be buying.”
