After being released, Ric Flair went to NWA for 73 PPV. During his promo, Flair thanked Vince McMahon, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and others within the WWE Universe who helped him through the lows of his WWE career and carried him.

He claimed that even though McMahon may never see his promo, he believes that the WWE Chairman will be happy to see where he is, and that he is where he belongs. As of now, he may still be able to work with another company if he wants to.
