• “I walked out the door” – Ric Flair After What ROH Told Him To Do
During a recent edition of his podcast, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair talked about refusing to talk bad about WWE, and even walking out on Ring Of Honor Wrestling after being told to do so.
Below is what The Nature Boy said:
“I never did that. I never said a word.
I refused when Bischoff wanted me to crack on Vince, and I said, ‘I will absolutely never do that.’ Ring of Honor, same bullsh*t with them.
They wanted me to get in the ring and say that they were as big and can compete with the WWE. I said, ‘I absolutely do not do that’ and I walked out the door. I don’t care what story you hear from anybody. That’s what happened.
That was unconditional. I will never crack on the WWE. Do I have issues with people that work there? Yes. But the WWE pulled me from my head being shaved (in WCW), shamed beyond belief for who I was supposed to be in the business, head shaved and shaved my son’s head.
Oh, my God. Had to get us both right? He thought it was the greatest thing in the world because he was 12 years old. But what a way to be left, and that’s how they left me. That’s history, and that’s bullsh*t.”
