Ric Flair is 71 years old, but he has been on WWE television for the past few weeks. Some fans would rather that he not take the risk, but he had no issues showing up to the Performance Center.
Flair’s health concerns have been well documented. Still, he continued to arrive at the WWE Performance Center. This is months after he send out a passionate message begging fans to wear their masks and practice social distancing.
While speaking to Wrestling Inc, Ric Flair expressed full confidence in Vince McMahon, John Laurinaitis, Mark Carrano, and others that they are doing everything possible to keep the WWE Performance Center safe.
“The WWE is doing everything and following every guideline possible. The testing and all that was conducted as professionally as it could possibly be. Three doctors. Organized. Yes, people had to stand in line, but that was because of so many people being tested. But nobody was together. Everybody had a mask on.”
“I would scrutinize anybody that said otherwise at the highest level. I was tired of hearing the bullsh*t,” Flair added regarding reports of the testing being unorganized. “Carrano, Ace, Vince himself, I could go down the list of people that are making sure that everybody’s life is at the best possible place while they’re there for the event.”
Ric Flair returned to the WWE Performance Center after knowing that several positive tests were found. He said that it’s safer than going to Kroger to enter the WWE PC.
“I went back the next day. Of course I would. And I’ve got a pre-existing condition and I’m in my 70s! Let me tell you something, you are safer going to a WWE event than you are going to Kroger’s grocery store.”
Ric Flair signed a new WWE contract recently, and he has no issue showing up when Vince McMahon needs him. Hopefully, The Nature Boy will be able to do everything needed to stay safe during this uncertain time. He seems to have faith that WWE taking care of everything that they need to.
