Ric Flair is one of the greatest names in pro wrestling history. The WWE Hall of Famer has years of experience under his belt where he delivered an unprecedented amount of show-stopping performances. It would make sense for every up-and-coming WWE superstar to seek and act on advice from the WWE legend. However, it seems to be far from reality.

Appearing on Booker T’s Hall of Fame podcast, The Nature Boy Ric Flair expressed discontent with his advice given to WWE rookies falling on deaf ears. Flair revealed that this was the reason he has stopped giving out advice.

“I’ve learned my lesson. It doesn’t do any good. When people say to me, ‘he’s a prick, he won’t help anybody.’ Everybody I have given advice to, that has asked me, and people have been very polite and asked me 100 times, especially when I was traveling with Ashley [Charlotte Flair], the young guys. They take my opinion, which I know what I’m talking about, and then they get in the car or walk up the ramp and they either look and see what the marks said about it or they talk to another guy who has a much experience as him or less, and that’s who they go with. God forbid I know anything. I could critique these matches they’re having right now, but it’s not worth the aggravation, number one. Number two, my daughter works there and I’m not going to say anything except positive things,”

Along with close friend Gerald Brisco, The Nature Boy was present backstage on the episode of Friday Night SmackDown that wrapped up 2022. It was the same night that his daughter, Charlotte Flair made her return to WWE and defeated Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s championship.


Fans might have thought Ric Flair was out there to support his daughter’s return. To the shock of many Flair revealed that he left SmackDown before Charlotte’s match took place. For more updates stay tuned to Ringside News.
