Ric Flair is one of the most adored WWE Hall of Famers. With his retirement match coming up next, he’s at the height of his preparation and will be at the Starrcast Wrestling Convention in July alongside AEW star Jay Lethal.
Flair has a lot of friends in WWE despite being let go at the height of the pandemic. However, there are superstars he didn’t get along with. WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page is one of them. In a reaction to Flair’s upcoming match, Dallas Page revealed how he ended his beef with Flair.
Dallas Page and Ric Flair were not on the best of terms. It was until Ric Flair’s farewell back in RAW 2008 that the two mended their differences. In a backstage signing session together, Page decided that it was put an end to the heat between them, which extended beyond the ring.
Page revealed what he told Flair in the autograph session on an episode of his DDP Snake Pit podcast. He said that he knew exactly what he wanted to say, and how he wanted their heat to end.
I knew what I wanted to do. I knew what I wanted to say… He came into the green room; of course, he got swarmed like he always does. Eventually, people moved out, and now it’s just Ric and me… We go out to the side, and I said, ‘You know Ric, I know we’ve had heat on and off over the years.’ He was like, ‘Ah Diamond, don’t worry about that.’ I go, ‘Ric; I’m not worried about it. I want to fix it.Transcription by Sportskeeda Wrestling
The Hall of Famer added that while Flair had forgotten it, he explained his side of the story. As he always admired Flair, the two made nice and Flair hugged him to end any tension that was between them. He even kissed the star on his forehead, which meant that he held mutual respect for him as well.
