Vince McMahon's resounding retirement has ushered in a new era. The now former WWE Chairman has decided to step aside, also thanks to the heavy accusations that have come down on him in recent times. His place was taken by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while Triple H became the new head of the creative team.
Although The Game has only been in this role a few weeks ago, fans have already been able to observe huge changes in the product since he took over. The 14-time world champion, who retired from wrestling shortly before WrestleMania 38, has already given his creative touch to the shows and has favored the return to the company of several stars who had been released.
The appearances of Dakota Kai, Johnny Gargano, Karrion Kross and Scarlett sent audiences into raptures. A guest on the latest edition of the 'To Be The Man' podcast, legendary Ric Flair said Hunter will leave less room for part-timers in the future.
“Triple H has a totally different view of wrestling from that of other people. I don't think he's crazy about part-timers, even if that's just my opinion" - said Ric Flair.
Ric Flair opens up on Triple H
"He has worked hard every day and has always loved those athletes who work daily for the good of the company.
He will give less space to the part-timers and give the right awards to the stars who make the deck every week”- added the 16-time world champion. The 73-year-old from Memphis played the last match of his career on July 31 in Nashville.
Ric joined forces with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to defeat Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal. Former WWE manager Dutch Mantell has some doubts about Flair's future: “I'm not so sure that July 31 was really his last meeting.
There may be others in the future. If someone offers him a lot of money, he will have no problem getting back into the ring”. Ric Flair also opened up about his falling out with Triple H, who was his longtime friend. “Well, I don’t think we’re thick as thieves, but I can tell you this.
We had a big falling out over the trademark, ‘The Man’ issue, a big falling out. But, I’d be very surprised if I wasn’t in the top 5 people who reached out to Stephanie [McMahon] when he got sick. Certainly, as soon as I became aware of it, I called her and I called him,” said Flair.
