WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair is undoubtedly one of the greatest pro wrestlers to have ever laced up a pair of boots in the pro wrestling world. He has worked in several different promotions throughout his illustrious career and competed in many iconic matches.
However, while many may consider Ric Flair’s wrestling style to be one of the best in the business, it seems not everyone was a fan of his work. Still, many consider Ric Flair one of the greatest of all time.
While speaking on his Drive Thru, Jim Cornette claimed that Vince McMahon did not like Ric Flair’s style of pro wrestling.
“Vince respects who Ric Flair has been, what he’s done, his longevity, the dedication he has had to the business, the fact that he was ‘The Guy’ for the only opposition that Vince had there for quite a while, etc. Vince never liked Ric Flair’s style of wrestling or style of matches and he wouldn’t be Vince McMahon’s favorite wrestler or even in the top 50. Vince McMahon’s favorite kind of wrestler was Hulk Hogan – the exact antithesis (to Flair).”
Ric Flair recently asked for his release from WWE and was also granted it. We will have to wait and see if Ric Flair truly will go to AEW or not, as there is certainly a lot he could do there.
