Ric Flair achieved great success during his illustrious career in the pro wrestling business. The Nature Boy created lot of controversy with his antics as well. Flair recently discussed dragging JBL’s WWE Hall of Fame induction.
Flair recently opened up once again on his To Be The Man podcast. The Nature Boy covered wide range of subjects. Flair also talked about his most recent tweet against JBL’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.
I’ve seen it all. I get so tired of people, you know, fans, marks, whatever they are, whatever, in all due respect to them, but they don’t have an opinion if they’re not there. To me, I’m never going to get off the fact that wrestling is a fraternity. It should be a brotherhood, respect for everybody, and there’s no time for anybody to cause anybody personal embarrassment or hardship in our business. There is no place for it. We all know the story of Bradshaw. It’s f*cking brutal, but he’s rewarded with a Hall of Fame? It’s their company. They do what they want to do. But what about the three or four guys I’ve seen melt down personally, melt down and cry. They were so humiliated.
I didn’t have a falling out. I’m making a personal observation. He’s always nice to me. Everybody could take a rib, but outright bullying a guy where he really feels like sh*t? It’s not healthy. It doesn’t do anybody good. He’s never done anything to me. I guess I’m lucky but I mean, I wouldn’t tolerate it if he did, and obviously Joey Styles didn’t either from what I’ve been told. So, you know, it just got to be cut off somewhere. But I’ve seen people just cry over humiliation and we are supposed to be a brotherhood.
Bradshaw is also infamous for being bully, and Ric Flair is not a fan of him either. JBL had a very bad reputation for being an outright bully in the WWE locker room, having often harassed several WWE Superstars over the years.
JBL will always have a mixed reputation because of how well-known he is in the industry. Ric Flair will always have his own viewpoint, and that won’t be changing any time soon. You may check out the tweet below and listen to the entire podcast episode here.
