Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson needs no introduction when it comes to the pro wrestling world as he is still regarded as one of the all-time greats. He is also a dominant force in Hollywood and brings huge star power to any film he acts in. The Rock is also businessman and a very conniving one at that. He also loves keeping himself in the best physical shape possible.
On the other hand, WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair shocked the world after requesting his release from WWE earlier this year. It was previously said that Ric Flair wants one more in-ring run.
Ric Flair also made it clear that he did not request his release because of his relationship with WWE. Vice’s Dark Side of the Ring focused on The Plane Ride From Hell, which ultimately led to everyone trying to cancel Ric Flair as well.
Ric Flair recently took to Twitter and uploaded a throwback photo with the Rock, as he gave massive props to the Brahma Bull. The Rock saw Flair’s tweet and decided to reply to it, as he stated that Ric Flair will always be the man no matter what.
“Respect, always brother. You, Dusty my dad, Muraco, Hawk, Animal, Piper, all you guys were my heroes. This pic was taken in 1984 ~ in Vegas at the NWA annual convention. I was pimply faced 12 year old with an afro and you were (and will always be) “The Man”. #woo
Ric Flair also made it abundantly clear that he will never work for WWE ever again. Flair also recently stated that he would rather die in the ring than spend month in the ICU. Should he compete in another match, we will have to wait and see which company he will call his home next.
