Ric Flair spoke on his podcast about Ricky Steamboat's decision to come out of retirement. It seemed like Steamboat wasn't coming back but... “When I spoke to him, we were trying to get him to work with us. He indicated to me back then that he didn’t think, health-wise, he was ready to do it.
It’s what makes him feel good. Like I say about myself, I could wrestle again right now too, and I’d be a lot better than I was in the Last Match because when you’re gone away that long you forget about little things that’ll make a difference and you spend too much time getting in shape for it that you don’t think about little things like dehydrating.
I was so into the training part that I forgot about little things. I think he should do what he wants to do. He’s Ricky Steamboat, there’s only going to be one Ricky Steamboat, whether it’s good or bad, it’s not going to affect his legacy.
He’s the best babyface in the history of the business”. - he said, as quoted by pwmania.com
Ric Flair talked about Sami Zayn and The Bloodline in an interview with the "To Be The Man" podcast “Well at first, I was very open about it that I didn’t even like him being with The Bloodline.
I thought he diluted it. But I know in sitting and talking with Booker T, everybody looks at it differently. I was with Booker T in New York at an autograph session and Booker thinks the sun rises and falls on the guy. Looking at Roman and what Bloodline is and how they conduct themselves, I found him bringing way too much comedy to it.
But apparently, it’s worked. Maybe that’s me being old school. But when you got a serious character like The Usos, who I don’t even think I have to argue are the best tag team right now in business as heels.
Roman is over like nobody else. I didn’t like it because the kid is comical. His character is comical”.
