"The Man has Invaded TNA Wrestling!!!!
It appears that Ric Flair has signed a 65 date and one year contract deal with TNA which will see him work those dates with the company, he will not be wrestling 65 times, it just means he will appear at 65 events for them in the course of one year. TNA had been trying to sign Ric heavily for the last year and a half. However, in an effort to get Flair on Impact last Monday night, TNA offered him a much higher amount of money than he had expected, and he will be working on a guaranteed money deal and unlike WWE he will finally be able to book his own outside appearances (either involving public appearances, business deals and autograph signings). TNA is very high on Flair at the moment because they see him as someone who could potentially boost the company's popularity in various international markets. TNA wants to use him as an ambassador of sorts, and as someone who can represent the company internationally to ultimately help make it appear more major league. It should also be noted that in addition to using Flair as an "ambassador," TNA still plans to use him as an on-air character and as a sporadic wrestler.
