Ric Flair on his in-ring persona
“There are so many moments that will remain forever in my heart. If I had to choose one, I would opt for the match against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 24, I was 59 ”- Ric Flair replied.
Ric confided that he still has difficulty talking about his son Reid, who died prematurely from an overdose. “Even today, I really struggle to open up about my son's death. I've never used drugs in my life, so I don't know how such a thing could have happened.
It's a nightmare I have to live with every day ”- said the twice Hall of Famer. Comments could not be missing about his daughter Charlotte Flair, who has kept the Flair name high by contributing to the rise of the women's division in recent years.
"It's incredible. I have to admit she surprised me. I didn't pass the flashlight to her, she's the one who took it. Charlotte is so much bigger than anything I've ever made, she is nothing short of exceptional ”.
After losing the title to Shirai in the PPV 'TakeOver: In Your House', Charlotte took a long break from the stage. Flair returned to TLC, where she won her first tag team title paired with Asuka. Ric Flair spoke about his old rival Hulk Hogan and how it was a privilege for him to step in the ring with the WWE Hall of Famer.
"Any time I had the opportunity to wrestle Hulk was an opportunity to be in the ring with the flagship of WWE. I could list four or five other guys too but he was the ‘Golden Goose’ and he represented everything that the company wanted and not only competed at the highest level, but he was also the Make-a-Wish king long before it was recognized as much publicly as it is now.
He took time for the kids at every show. He worked hard and he just represented. I was thrilled to even have the opportunity to work against him," said Ric Flair.
