Ric Flair and being a Horseman: "Well, Ric lived his persona both in the ring and out of the ring. I found that out right away, I feel like for about three years there hanging out with the Horseman, I feel like I didn't sleep for almost three years. Ric could stay up all night, then he go to the gym and work out with me, then he go and wrestle an hour. I don't know how he did it. Ric will always tell you image is everything. He always had a limo waiting for us, we flew usually private or if we flew commercial, first class, stay at really nice hotels. Ric was everything he said he was both in and out of the ring, that's for sure."
Flair leaving WCW in 1991 with the title before their scheduled cage match and showing on WWE TV with it: "I was scheduled to wrestle Ric in the cage and I was scheduled to win the title that night. I wasn't told a lot, but they told me, we're putting you in the cage with Ric and you're winning the world title. As far as what happened after that, it was political stuff behind the scenes that I was not privy to. I heard that Ric was trying to negotiate a new contract, and I wanted the best for Ric, so when Ric ended up on television with the belt in the competing organization, I never had any hard feelings about that because I knew Ric had worked so hard and had such an incredible career. He was trying to do what was best for him and his family, from a business sense, I never took it personally. I was disappointed I didn't get to wrestle Ric in the cage to win the world title, but I wasn't upset with Ric that he went and did what he had to do and what he thought was best business wise for Ric Flair.
"WCW at the time, they were negotiating with Ric almost right up until the day of the match. To still come in and do the match, it just fell apart at the last minute. Ric almost was WCW, so for Ric to leave was a huge void and vacuum that myself and nobody could possibly even entertain the thought of replacing. They didn't even have a belt ready yet. I think a lot of the guys were disappointed that Ric wasn't there, but the show must go on."
