• “I will be at his funeral” – Ric Flair On His Current Relationship With Triple H
When WWE gave Becky Lynch “The Man” moniker a few years ago, Ric Flair wasn’t happy about it because he thought that moniker and trademark belonged to him.
Flair was fine with Lynch using it, but wanted to get paid in return.
This resulted in a falling out between him and Triple H, who have been friends for years.
During a recent edition of his podcast, The Nature Boy had the following to say about his current relationship with The Game:
“Well, I don’t think we’re thick as thieves, but I can tell you this. We had a big falling out over the trademark, ‘The Man’ issue, a big falling out.
But, I’d be very surprised if I wasn’t in the top 5 people who reached out to Stephanie [McMahon] when he got sick. Certainly, as soon as I became aware of it, I called her and I called him.
[Triple H] is the first person I called when (my son) Reid died. So, for whatever people want to make about our relationship or not, I feel like everybody has ups and downs. You have arguments, you have disagreements.
But I can guarantee you this, I will be at his funeral, and I’ll guarantee you this, he will be at mine.
Everybody else can say what they want to say, make of it what they want to make of it.”
