– Ric Flair said he decided it was time to make a change when he left WWE. “No one respects the WWE more than me,” Flair told Mike Mooneyham of Charleston.net. “They have created a remarkable brand in business and sports entertainment. I just felt it was time for Ric Flair to go out and try some new things. I was thinking that I need the right person to help me be successful in the next chapter of my life. And that person is (agent) Elaine Gillespie.” Flair explained how he got to know Gillespie. “I know lots of people in Columbia and that’s how I met Elaine. I knew right off the bat she was the one who could take me to the next level. She may not be a wrestling expert, but she’s a promotional expert. And she’s tough. She says what she thinks. And she does what she says she’s going to do. I respect that.”
