Ric Flair Reveals That He Hated His Matches Against The Ultimate Warrior

“We wrestled twice, maybe three times, we just didn’t have any chemistry,” Flair said.

“We were in Winnipeg, Canada, I wrestled the Warrior and we came back. Pat Patterson said, ‘I have to tell you, that was the worst championship match I’ve ever seen.’ I said, ‘Pat, you don’t have to tell me.

I was in it.’ In a previous episode of the podcast, he stated that he was very upset at the WWE when the WWE removed him from the opening of their shows to be replaced by The Ultimate Warrior. He also went on to state that the door is open for him to sign with All Elite Wrestling as his situation with the WWE is not that good.

He then went on to explain why his matches with the Ultimate Warrior were complete stinkers. Ric Flair had a very long career and he fought some of the best wrestlers of all time in the WWE. Ric stated that his matches against the Ultimate Warrior were the ones that he hated the most.

“He sent me over a three-page letter to memorize,” Ric Flair said. “I don’t do that. I had to with Randy [Savage] because it was basically pushed on me but Randy and DDP and a few other guys liked to write it all down, which is fine.

But you have to hope that the crowd is going to feel about the match the way that you’ve written it down. If you have this memorized skit and then you go out and you execute and the fans aren’t buying what you’re doing, then what do you do? If you don’t have the experience to start it back up, what do you do? You lose and the match stinks.

With me and the Ultimate Warrior, the match stunk. I don’t blame him, I don’t blame myself, it just didn’t work”.
