[All Japan News/Update] I posted the news last night on my twitter, but I will post this news on here as well with an update.
All Japan announced today that Ric Flair  will be appearing at the upcoming show in Ota, Japan on January 26th.
The early thought is that this will involve the announcement of Reid Flair beginning training in the All Japan Dojo.
Now though, it seems that Ric Flair may very well be competing on the 1.26 show. I have no been told otherwise by source in All Japan, as things seem to be quiet for the most part.
Ric Flair’s participation in the venue has been decided. The fight card will be announced on a later date.
All Japan also lists his stats as an active competitor. This is certainly big news indeed, and I will keep you all updated when more information is released.
With Ric Flair recently coming back to the WWE and now working in All Japan. I have gotten messages asking if the connection between the two promotions has more truth to it than original shown, but I am not at the liberty to say anymore on that.
Announced event card at this time.
