Vince Russo opens up on Ric Flair

In his last match, Ric Flair, The 'Nature Boy' teamed up with Andrade El Idolo to face Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett in Nashville on Sunday night. The decision of the 16-time world champion to step into the ring at the age of 73 has divided public opinion, given the numerous health problems that Ric has had to deal with in recent years.

Suffice it to say that Flair hasn't played an official match in 11 years when he clashed with Sting in 2011 during his TNA experience. The Memphis champion has written very important pages of wrestling history, as well as having made millions of fans fall in love in every corner of the planet.

In 2012, Ric became the first wrestler in history to be inducted twice into the WWE Hall of Fame, both individually and as a member of the 'Four Horsemen' In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo criticized Flair's choice to return to the ring.

"The truth is that many wrestlers have Peter Pan syndrome" - began Vince Russo bluntly. “They can't grow up and leave their past in the ring behind. I don't know if Ric Flair made this decision for economic reasons.

At the same time, I doubt Jeff Jarrett needs the money. I can't say for sure how this machine started. I just hope nothing bad happens” - he added. Vince went back to talking about Bray Wyatt: “There was no one in WWE who could create compelling storylines for a champion of his caliber.

If you are unable to exploit his enormous potential, you are forced to drop him. The company no longer had any ideas for his character and Wyatt had basically become a wrestler like any other. He wasn't supposed to be like that.

When you have such a talented boyfriend, you have to look after him every single week. It wasn't Bray's fault”. Former WWE head writer Vince Russo believes that Bianca Belair and many other stars have been miscast by the company.

"I think Rhea Ripley is a killer, I think they use her wrong. They don't have a clue how to use this woman but I think she's a star. I think Bianca Belair is a star, I think she's miscast, I think Riddle is good, I think he's miscast. So a lot of the people that I really like and admire, I just think they're totally miscast," said Russo.
