Ric Flair is a two-time WWE Hall of Famer, and a bona fide living legend. He is not only a benchmark for anyone in the pro wrestling business, but his words also carry a lot of weight. That being said, it’s never the best situation when The Nature Boy is burying you.

DDP started his career off later in life than most. He started his wrestling career in the late 1980s, working for various independent promotions. In 1991, he signed with WCW and quickly established himself as a top performer in the company. DDP won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship three times and the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship once. In 2001, DDP joined WWE and continued to have success as a wrestler. He retired from wrestling in 2005, years before Ric Flair’s “Last Match.”

While talking about DDP’s heat with the locker room on an episode of “Keepin’ It 100 with Konnan and Disco Inferno,” Disco Inferno admitted that Ric Flair was a bit critical of DDP.

“It wasn’t to each other, but Ric would throw [shade]. He’d bury Page every once in a while… because Page liked to go over move-for-move.”


Ric Flair’s preference was not to go over matches in-depth ahead of time. DDP’s request to go over matches in that way annoyed Flair during their time together in WCW.

Obviously, every wrestler has their own system in the ring, but Ric Flair isn’t the type to memorize every little thing. This apparently didn’t set too well with The Nature Boy, but not everyone can be like the 16x World Champion.
