Ric Flair will be at today's Magic Monikers 2 autograph show in Secaucus, New Jersey after all, reports Georgiann Makropoulos of Wrestlingfigs.com. Elaine Gillespie, his booking agent, released a statement earlier today saying that Flair wasn't going to be attending due to an unfulfilled obligation by the promoter. However, he has since agreed to fly in tomorrow morning after travel arrangements were made. The exact problem between Flair & the promoter remains unclear, but one reported problem is that the promoters wanted him to sign autographed merchandise for those who had made requests through the mail. Gillespie said the deal was only to sign autographs for people appearing at show and signing more autographs would be set at a different price. According to people close to the situation, Hulk Hogan, who will be at the show, talked to Flair and convinced him to come. Here is information on the show: December 13th - RIC "The Nature Boy" FLAIR will be signing autographs @ Magic Moniker 2 @ Crowne Plaza Hotel - 2 Harmon Plaza, Secaucus, NJ Call 800-770-5675. Also Hulk Hogan, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, Virgil, Bryan Clark formerly known as Wrath, Adam Bomb" and 1/2 of 3 time tag team champion "Kronik" and Tito Santana have been added for Saturday.
