Ric Flair is a wrestling icon, as well as one of the most influential figures in the history of this business. The 'Nature Boy' has personally contributed to the spread of wrestling around the world, as well as having made millions of fans fall in love with him during his long and glorious career.
In 2012, the Memphis star became the first wrestler in history to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice, both individually and as a member of the 'Four Horsemen' Last July, the 16-times world champion returned to the ring, leaving both fans and insiders speechless.
Ric has joined forces with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to take on Jey Lethal and Jeff Jarrett in Nashville. Despite some moments of apprehension, Flair managed to complete the match and earn a standing ovation from the audience.
Ric Flair slams Eric Bischoff
In the latest edition of the podcast 'To Be The Man', Ric Flair revealed that he is very angry with Eric Bischoff: "I'm really pissed off at Eric. Everyone thinks Hulk Hogan and I didn't get along, but it was Bischoff who handled my checks.
Eric screwed me every chance he got. I consider him an arrogant cog***ne ”. Within his podcast 'After 83 Weeks', Bischoff found himself having to respond to Flair's heavy accusations: "I don't know what he's talking about.
Maybe I've said something in the past years that he has offended him and he still hasn't forgiven me. I don't know what else to think." Eric also spoke about Cm Punk: “The truth is that Punk is old, frail and has never been in great shape since he arrived in AEW.
He doesn't even look like an athlete anymore and there's no point in continuing to invest in him. I'm sure he still has a lot of fans out there who continue to support him despite everything, but most people are left with a bad taste in their mouths.
People have realized that the mystique that enveloped him in his WWE days no longer exists. Its value is very low right now." Ric Flair believes his former WCW co-worker Shane Douglas is unlikely to be inducted into a wrestling Hall of Fame.
“Who is Shane Douglas? Who is he today? I’m asking. You know him real well, who is he? … He certainly means nothing to me in terms of being a talent. He never succeeded anywhere. He can say what he wants to say. I don’t think you’ll see him in a Hall of Fame anywhere any time soon," said Flair.
