Ric Flair and Triple H have a relationship that dates back many years. The two shared a friendship that went well beyond the squared circle. Flair even sent message of support to The Game when his health issues cropped up.
The two had such a trusting relationship that Vince McMahon personally sent Triple H to cut off Ric Flair’s meandering Hall of Fame speech. There were plenty of on-screen interactions as well. The Nature Boy and Paul Levesque at one time had a very tight bond.
That bond appears to have been broken. Ric Flair found himself mired in controversy and faced a de-facto cancellation by WWE after word of his behavior on the “plane ride from hell” resurfaced in a Dark Side of the Ring episode. Flair was asked on his podcast whether he knew if Triple H was still working with WWE. He responded that he has no idea because they don’t talk.
“I have no idea. He and I were incredibly close, and now I never hear from him, so I don’t know.”
It could be that Triple H is focusing on his health. There is also an argument that Triple H just ghosted Flair like the rest of WWE. The Nature Boy himself has no idea why the relationship was suddenly severed.
Ric Flair is undoubtedly one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. That doesn’t make him an upstanding citizen by any means. There are probably a lot more people besides Triple H that no longer choose to associate with Flair.
