Ric Flair: “I Will Never Wrestle Again”
Ric Flair was interviewed by Wrestlenewz.com in an exclusive, two-part series. While the majority of the interview was mainly about what he thinks of WWE nowadays and if he still has something to contribute to the company, he was eventually asked if there is still the possibility of him wrestling in the ring once more. Here is the excerpt from the interview:
“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.”
