WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair spoke with Jim Varsallone of The Miami Herald this week to promote his appearance at the Magic City Comic Con event this weekend at the Miami Airport Convention Center. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On inducting Sting in the WWE Hall of Fame:
“I would love to be that person… I haven’t been asked, but I would love to.”
On WWE using Reid Flair’s passing for an angle on RAW:
“It was said that I was upset, but I wasn’t. Those kind of things are going to happen periodically. The emotion is real. She and Reid were very, very close. I certainly wasn’t offended by what happened [on Raw]. I just don’t like to see her cry. That was somebody’s thought, and she ok’d it. They said, ‘[Charlotte], do you mind if we do this?’ And she said, ‘No. I don’t mind at all.’ It’s the business, and sometimes things that are real come across in a way that the people are mad about it, but if I’m not mad, and [Charlotte’s] not mad, and we’re the key players.”
On his podcast:
“[Podcasts] can be very lucrative. I’m heading down to do one right now with Chris Jericho. It’s fun, and you learn form them. My problem is I can’t critique the [WWE] show, because my daughter’s on the show, and I’m still actively working for the company. The other guys who do podcasts can critique the show, but I wouldn’t be caught dead doing that.
“Actually, I don’t have anything negative to say about it anyway, but if there was something I thought, I couldn’t possibly say it, because I would basically be cracking on the hand that feeds me. I don’t feel like there’s anything negative on the show anyways.”
