Source: Wrestling 101Joshua Modaberi of Wrestling101 recently interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair. Here are some highlights:
Vince McMahon as a boss: "Vince again is a great guy, he's very honest and to the point and truthful. He is brutally honest and it takes a lot for someone in this day and age to be brutally honest but Vince is and I respect that about him. He's the man, there is no one like him and no one has ever compared to him in this business, he has put things together that no one ever has, he's a genius. But don't piss him off! I've pissed Vince off plenty of times but oh boy did he make me aware of it and at the end of the day Vince always wins."
The current WWE product: "I think the current product is average but that's because you can't replace guys like The Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair, it's very hard to replace all of those great guys, but the WWE is still the best wrestling product there is. The WWE really misses that whole attitude era but you'll never get that back because it is just so hard to establish new names over night, you can't just take a generation of people and try to replace them to make it better because it is a very tough and difficult business."
Who stands out in WWE: "The first three that come to my mind are John Cena, Randy Orton and Big Show, I really like Rey Mysterio and I think Dolph Ziggler can be great. There are a lot of good guys there right now but it's just not what it was when you had the likes of Steve Austin, Triple H, Kurt Angle, I think Kurt is awesome, right now he is the best wrestler in the business."
What 2013 has in store for Ric Flair following his recent appearance on RAW: "I'm so thankful for my loyal fans, and I'm happy to be home in the WWE. I don't think I'll ever wrestle again because of things that have happened with Jerry Lawler etc. that really made think, but I have too much energy to just be sitting at home, I will bring so much charisma to the table. Whenever I hear the crowds going WOOOOO!! It makes me feel very good, it means I've worked very hard and earned a lot of respect, each night I go out there I go out there for the fans to make them smile, or make them cry."
Flair also discussed entering the business, his daughter's in NXT, being a part of the final Nitro, his WrestleMania highlight and much more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
