During the latest edition of Ric Flair’s the WOOOOO! Nation Podcast, Flair noted that WWE wants Shawn Michaels to come out of retirement for one more match. Michaels retired in 2010 and has remained steadfast in his decision to stay away from the ring.
Flair said, “They [WWE] want him so bad for Royal Rumble, but he ain’t budging from that ranch down there in Texas.”
Also, Ric Flair spoke with the Miami Herald for a new interview. Check out the highlights:
On possibly inducting Sting into the WWE Hall of Fame: “I would love to be that person. I haven’t been asked, but I would love to.”
On not critiquing WWE on his podcast: “My problem is I can’t critique the [WWE] show, because my daughter’s on the show, and I’m still actively working for the company. The other guys who do podcasts can critique the show, but I wouldn’t be caught dead doing that. Actually, I don’t have anything negative to say about it anyway, but if there was something I thought, I couldn’t possibly say it, because I would basically be cracking on the hand that feeds me. I don’t feel like there’s anything negative on the show anyways”.
On the Charlotte/Paige Promo that mentioned Reid Flair: “It was said that I was upset, but I wasn’t. Those kind of things are going to happen periodically. The emotion is real. She and Reid were very, very close. I certainly wasn’t offended by what happened [on Raw]. I just don’t like to see her cry. That was somebody’s thought, and she ok’d it. They said, ‘[Charlotte], do you mind if we do this?’ And she said, ‘No. I don’t mind at all.’ It’s the business, and sometimes things that are real come across in a way that the people are mad about it, but if I’m not mad, and [Charlotte’s] not mad, and we’re the key players.”
