Why Isn't Ric Flair Back on Regular WWE TV Yet?

It's for that familiar old reason...
- As you may have well noticed, Ric Flair hasn't shown up on WWE TV as a regular character yet. It was widely reported that Flair had passed his physicals and would be reappearing on TV as a regular character, possibly managing The Miz. However, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the Miz plans are off the table for some unknown reason and Flair hasn't been brought back because--say it with me, folks--Creative has nothing for him.
There were some rumors floating around some other sites that Flair's appearance on Raw in Richmond Virgina may have had something to do with it; Flair did an interview segment with Renee Young and hit on her. Due to Flair's well-known incident at the WWE 2K14 roster reveal Q&A, it has been reported that he's not allowed to go off script. However, everything said there was scripted, with the only ad lib he did being when he told fans to "ask your mothers and fathers" in reference to his past in Richmond.
So yeah, it's simply a matter of Creative having not come up with anything for him.
