Ric Flair is one of the biggest legends in the history of wrestling and if you've been following the WWE for a long time, then you probably have a particular soft spot for Flair. The Nature Boy has been with the organization for quite a few decades now and even in his 70s, Flair has remained a part of the WWE family. Of course, his daughter Charlotte is one of the most popular women's wrestlers out right now, and he has had every reason to stay with the company and collect checks.

Recently, however, numerous big names have been leaving the WWE and it looks like many of them are hoping to go to an organization like the AEW, which values the fans a lot more. As for Flair, the politics of the WWE can be strenuous, especially at his age.
