Flair has been a regular legend fixture in certain go-to scenarios on WWE television. Most recently, he was embroiled in a storyline with Lacey Evans and his daughter, Charlotte Flair. Dating back to last year, he also worked with Randy Orton and other legends in an effort to get over Orton’s maniacal, heel act at the time.
