target="new">Ric Flair recently spoke with
in an exclusive two-part interview. In the
first part, The Nature Boy discusses WWE's current product, his future,
what he has left to contribute, some of WWE's current talents and lots more.
Flair was asked if he will wrestle again: WNZ:
Will we see you wrestle again? Ric Flair:
I want to be in the ring, but it will never
happen again. I said I'd never wrestle in WWE... and then there's the
Jerry Lawler incident. WNZ:
So Lawler’s heart attack has changed the
perception of older wrestlers continuing to perform? Ric Flair:
Yeah, it really did. I like Jerry very much.
What happened to Jerry was terrible, and thank God he’s OK. But I wish
people wouldn’t gauge me by what happened to him. Everybody's an
individual. But I think it kind of put a decision on my future in the
ring, you know what I mean? And that's fine, because I went back to the
ring in TNA, and that will never happen again.
The full interview can be read at
where Flair gives
props to three top WWE stars, reveals who he still keeps in touch with,
if he would have tried MMA and what wrestlers would have been successful
at it, if wrestlers need to be tough these days and more. Part 2 will be
posted later this week and features Flair discussing his daughter
working with WWE, his #1 goal with a WWE return, his run with TNA and more.
