Ric Flair – ‘I Hated Working With Dipsh*t Eric Bischoff In WCW’



Ric Flair absolutely hated working with Eric Bischoff in WCW.

During a recent edition of the “This Past Weekend” podcast, the Nature Boy revealed that it was “the worst” working alongside a “dipsh*t” known as Eric Bischoff due to the politics involved, as well as Easy-E trying to put him in the back of the pack despite him being an established star with many years of experience.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On working in WCW under Eric Bischoff: “Hated it. The worst. Well, I was out of sight, out of mind. It didn’t work. He kept trying to lose me. He thought if he could take me off TV and bury me, he forgot where I’d been for 20 years, 25 years before I met him. You don’t lose 25 years of being a man and then all of a sudden have some dipsh*t try and put you in the back of the pack. He beat my brains out, though. That was a big-time loss of self-confidence, period, in my life.”

On if the business was as political as when he first started: “No. When I got in the business, you were either good or you were bad. And if you were bad and they don’t like you, they beat you up really. Beat you up right in the ring if they could. Now it’s so political. It’s awful. Jesus.

“It used to be when you enjoyed it the most. And when I enjoyed it the most is when you were there, because you were that much better than the next guy or the woman with it. Now you can be better than anybody, but it’s all… it’s sad, but you either accept it or you don’t be part of it. I’d rather be part of it and accept it. And I don’t talk about it, and I’m not talking about any individuals. I’m just addressing the reality of our business now. It’s very political.”
