Ric Flair saw great success during his time in the pro wrestling world. Along with his accomplishments, The Nature Boy also developed close relationships with several personalities. One of them is Eric Bischoff, but right now it appears that things are up and down due to some claims.

In a recent episode of his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair covered a wide range of subjects. During it, a question regarding Eric Bischoff’s recent claim that Ric Flair didn’t make money for WCW and that’s why he had to sign Hulk Hogan was posed to the WWE Hall of Famer.

“He didn’t get Hulk Hogan. I went and got Hulk Hogan. He didn’t know Hulk Hogan. Why would Hulk Hogan know a piss ant working downstairs in a camera room? I drove to Orlando with them while they met in Hulk’s trailer (on Hulk’s movie set). He didn’t go find Hulk Hogan. He didn’t find Savage. He didn’t find Piper. I did and I put them all over for him.”

Flair was then questioned if Bischoff’s assertion that The Horseman and Flair didn’t receive payment contributed to the rekindling of their conflict. He continued by saying that he went back and modified his earlier remark from “he’s an arrogant prick” to “he’s an arrogant prick with no friends.”


“I’ve gone back and all I said was he’s an arrogant prick, but now I can say he’s an arrogant prick with no friends. Now he’s pissed off Arn and Tully. I will say this, asking why they put him on it (his documentary). They basically said to me that they wanted people to see what I had to put up with to end up where I am today. That’s a good enough answer. He actually was worse for me than Jim Herd and worse for the business.”

“Even if it wasn’t in my documentary, I would say the same thing. If someone said, ‘What do you think of Eric Bischoff,’ I’d say, ‘You know what? Eric and I have been friends off and on, and I respect him for two things. He called me when my son died, which is more than a couple other people that I can name did, and he did the right thing, I swear to God, and people will be mad at me for saying this, when Charles (Robinson) and I wrestled Savage and Madusa and Randy jumped off the top rope and broke Charles’ ribs and almost killed him (and collapsed his lung), Randy didn’t give him a f*cking dime. Eric wrote him a check for 25 grand. So I will thank Eric for that.’”

“Here’s another thing that I’ll never get over, two other things that Eric did that I thought were unbelievable, and I’m sticking up for my friends here. I thought it was horrible they brought Liz back with Luger with Randy there, and I thought it was even worse that he brought Sid back without telling Arn.”

Ric Flair obviously has a firm opinion of Eric Bischoff, and that is not going to change. Their story might have a lot of history behind it, but it is still very much being written. For further updates, stay tuned to Ringside news.
