• “He never succeeded anywhere” – Ric Flair On Former ECW World Heavyweight Champion
Former 4-time ECW World Heavyweight Champion Shane Douglas took shots at “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair back in the 90s and Flair didn’t like it.
During a recent edition of his podcast, Mark Madden asked Flair’s opinion on the promos Shane cut on him in ECW.
Below is what Flair said:
“Who is Shane Douglas? Who is he today? I’m asking. You know him real well, who is he?
He certainly means nothing to me in terms of being a talent. He never succeeded anywhere. He can say what he wants to say.
I don’t think you’ll see him in a Hall of Fame anywhere any time soon.”
In 2021, Shane said the following about Flair during an interview on The Hannibal TV:
“I’ve always had reverence and respect for Ric’s in-ring work. Him as a man? Not so much. I don’t expect him to be perfect – I’m far from perfect – but I do expect, just like what was done to him, somebody handed him the knowledge of wrestling. I expected the same thing as a kid. I try to do the same thing today.”
