Ric Flair explains why he won’t return to the WWE.
Ric Flair was released from the WWE over the summer, and it appeared that the two sides were still on good terms at the time. The last two weeks, however, have painted a totally different picture. On Twitter, Flair said that WWE was attempting to “destroy” his legacy, and on his Wooooo Nation Uncensored Podcast, he stated that he would never return to the company as long as Nick Khan was still its president.
“Well, by erasing my legacy, if you take me off the opening of the show and replace me with The Ultimate Warrior, a guy who sued the company and held them up for money, I guess the next thing they’re going to do with me is make a DVD with so many people saying how bad I was like The Warrior, then they bring him back and put him in The Hall of Fame,” Flair said (ht WrestlingNews.co). “I’m sorry, but that’s not going to work for me.” It’s that simple. No worries, but you’re not going to bring me back; not that they don’t want me, but I’ve never worked for Nick Khan in my life. I may work for Vince McMahon, but not Nick Khan, the man who organized my removal from the show. I’ve gathered all of my information. He coordinated the removal of my Woo. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever Tony Khan, on the other hand, respects me. He, like Vince, possesses. NIck Khan, on the other hand, has not. Now I’m conversing with Vince. Vince is not a problem for me. He knows I’m not coming back.” Shortly after the Dark Side of the Ring show about the “Plane Ride From Hell” aired, Flair was removed from the opening signature of all WWE programming. A flight attendant accused Flair of sexual misconduct in that occasion.
The 16-time world champion then went into depth about his ongoing frustration with Becky Lynch’s “The Man” trademark. He then stated that he would be interested in working for All Elite Wrestling.
Flair stated, “There were no conversations at all.” “I promised Vince McMahon that my word was my bond, and that unless they did something extremely dumb to me, I would never work for the competition.” They’ve now done some truly heinous things, so… Summary of Entertainment News from Brinkwire.
