Two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair is undoubtedly one of the greatest pro wrestlers to have ever laced up a pair of boots. He has worked in several different promotions throughout his illustrious career and competed in many iconic matches. Since his recent WWE release, the world is wide open for The Nature Boy.
Ric Flair was also part of one of the most legendary stables in all of professional wrestling, which is the Four Horsemen. With Flair being released from WWE recently, many fans have been wondering where he will go next.
While speaking on his Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T talked about Ric Flair’s departure from WWE. Booker T believed that Flair left WWE as he wanted to compete in the ring again.
Booker T further added that he regularly speaks with Ric Flair and claimed that Flair told him he never wanted to retire from pro wrestling.
“My thing is this, and I’m going to let you take this into the break, Ric Flair is not the managerial type of guy. It’s just not his role. As well as, Ric Flair is not one of your guys that wants to be in the office, coming to work every day, wearing a suit and going into the office. That’s not Ric Flair. Ric Flair’s a party guy. That’s just his nature. You saw him on Triller, he’s all about having some fun.”
“Now my thing is this, I talk to Ric Flair on a regular — usually on a regular occasion. I don’t know how often I’m going to see him now, but Ric Flair told me, he said, ‘Book, I’m never going to retire.’ ‘If I could be in that ring right now, that’s where I’d be.’ So I think Ric Flair may be looking at one last run.”
Ric Flair will certainly keep himself busy in any way he can, but we certainly wonder if Ric Flair will make his way to any other pro wrestling company, as Flair has received quite few invitations already, especially as an in-ring competitor.
