Flair was frustrated with WWE’s creative direction for himself and his daughter Charlotte Flair. This led to him asking for his release from the company, a request that was granted.
According to a report from TMZ, Flair’s WWE departure wasn’t a sudden thing. The outlet reports that the situation has been “in the works” and they both recently agreed to a mutual parting of ways.
We’re told the split has been in the works … and both sides ultimately came to an agreement recently.
This report does add an interesting aspect to this story. It was previously thought that Flair’s release request was granted during a communication with Vince McMahon. Apparently, it was a bit more drawn out than that.
