Ric Flair Says He Misses Wrestling Every Day



WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was a guest on ESPN’s First Take this morning. Flair was promoting the release of his upcoming Woooooo! Becoming Ric Flair documentary, which will debut on Peacock on December 26th.

During the show, Flair asked Stephen A. Smith about being involved with WrestleMania 39 in Hollywood. Flair inquired, “Stephen A., I just got the word passed along that because WrestleMania is in California, they [WWE] know you’re out in California, I think they’re entertaining the idea of having you manage one of these guys that can’t talk too well.”

Stephen A., a longtime wrestling fan, confirmed that he was interested in appearing. Smith responded: “That’s right! Listen, man – Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan, Paul Heyman, and these guys; I would love to be a bad guy manager. I don’t know if you know that about me, Molly. I want to be one of those bad guys. I don’t want to be a goody-two-shoes guy, I want to be the troublemaker bad manager. I think I could pull it off, Ric Flair!”

Flair was also asked about how much he misses being in the ring, and The Nature Boy answered with the following, “Oh god, I miss it every day. I live vicariously through my daughter now. But you’re right, Stephanie [McMahon] and Hunter [Triple H] have taken over WWE, done a magnificent job. I watch the show religiously, and I get to a place where I put on Monday Night Football and wrestling and I tell you, wrestling competes with it every day. I tell you, that’s not a knock on the NFL. Wrestling has so many personalities and is so entertaining, and the athletes work so hard.”
