WWE Hall of Famer believes Ric Flair is looking for one last in-ring run. The 16-time World Champion recently parted ways with the WWE.
Ric Flair is considered one of the greatest wrestlers by many of his peers and several wrestlers who have come in the generations after. The 72 year old has achieved almost everything there is to achieve in the world of wrestling throught his illustrious career.
However, Booker T thinks that the Nature Boy is itching for one last return inside the squared circle. In fact, he is of the opinion that Flair’s recent WWE release may have something to do with it. The WWE Hall of Famer discussed this on the latest episode of his Hall of Fame podcast.
WWE Hall of Famer Booker T believes Ric Flair is looking for one last in-ring run
“My thing is this, and I’m going to let you take this into the break, Ric Flair is not the managerial type of guy. It’s just not his role. As well as, Ric Flair is not one of your guys that wants to be in the office, coming to work every day, wearing a suit and going into the office. That’s not Ric Flair. Ric Flair’s a party guy. That’s just his nature. You saw him on Triller, he’s all about having some fun.”
“Now my thing is this, I talk to Ric Flair on a regular — usually on a regular occasion. I don’t know how often I’m going to see him now, but Ric Flair told me, he said, ‘Book, I’m never going to retire.’ He said, ‘If I could be in that ring right now, that’s where I’d be.’ So I think Ric Flair may be looking at one last run.”
Ric Flair was recently released from the WWE after reportedly asking for it. Reports add that his displeasure with the promotion stemmed from the booking of his daughter Charlotte Flair.
