Ric Flair Personally Thanked Vince McMahon For Adding Him Back To WWE Signature Open

Ric Flair's trademark "Woooo" was added back to the WWE signature open as of the July 4 episode of WWE Raw.

The "Woooo" was removed from the signature open on the September 20, 2021 episode of WWE Raw. At the time, Flair was facing backlash after having sexual misconduct allegations against him and having the depiction of said allegations featured in an episode of Dark Side of the Ring. The incident allegedly occurred on the infamous “Plane Ride From Hell” in 2002. Flair denied the allegations.

Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Flair revealed that he personally thanked Vince McMahon for the gesture.

"I went and saw Vince yesterday [Monday] to personally thank him because they were in Tampa. It made me feel like my world had changed again. It made me feel a lot better than when they took me off. Everything Vince McMahon has ever said to me has come true and he said, 'I promise you I'll put you back on it,' and he did. I went over there and thanked him," said Flair.
