Ric Flair Says He Was Better At Losing, Kevin Sullivan On Steve Austin, Flammer/Valkyrie



On the latest edition of the “This Past Weekend” podcast, Ric Flair discussed his career and revealed that he was better at losing and “taking an ass-kicking.” The two-time WWE Hall of Famer said,

I was better at getting beat. And then I just lie the next day on TV [through a promo], and if you don’t, forget about it. That didn’t happen to me. What were you watching? I just had it [pain tolerance] my whole life. Brother, I was ADD before ADD was [diagnosed]. I’m still looking out the window in fourth grade. ‘Richard, can we have your attention, please?’ Social Studies 101. I spent 13 years in high school. Let me tell you, I still haven’t passed English or Latin.”

On a recent edition of his “Tuesday With The Taskmaster” podcast, Kevin Sullivan revealed how he would have booked the iconic heel turn of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin in 2001.

Of course, Austin aligned himself with Vince McMahon at WrestleMania X-7. Sullivan said,

“My answer, I believe, was too soon. If you built that up for quite a while, I think it would’ve blown the top off of any building you ever put that in because it was time. Everybody…it’s like, you’ve heard the story before, back in the day, when people paid attention to who was really the greatest shooter of all time. ‘Well, Lou [Thesz] could beat Jim Londos or Jim Londos can beat Lou.’ I think if you went into that match with that opening, who is the greatest of all time, I think it would’ve worked spectacularly. I think people, like I said, you could’ve had a pre-workout match, and drawn a bunch of money.”

At Saturday’s AAA TripleMania XXXI pay-per-view event in Mexico City, Flammer dethroned Taya Valkyrie to become the new AAA Reina de Reinas Champion.

Valkyrie was close to retaining her title earlier in the match, but a crucial interference from La Hiedra and Maravilla allowed Flammer to clinch the victory.
