WWE did indeed offer Ric Flair the job of SmackDown General Manager before giving it to Teddy Long. Word is that they offered him $250,000 a year to come back as a full-time regular but Flair turned it down because it was far less than the amount of money he is making doing what he is doing these days on his own. Besides Flair, WWE creative also talked about giving the SmackDown General Manager role to Dusty Rhodes. Stephanie called Dusty about doing the job. Dusty has been working in Tampa, FL with the developmental territory at FCW and left the WWE creative team because he didn’t like all the traveling at his age and size.
