• “I will never retire” – WWE Hall Of Famer
After hearing the news of Rick Steamboat’s in-ring return for Big Time Wrestling on November 27th, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair said he wants to make an in-ring comeback….AGAIN.
Below is what Flair said on his podcast:
“It’s one of those deals where nobody’s ever going to be Ricky Steamboat. So they might as well watch him while they can and enjoy the opportunity, because there never will be another Ricky Steamboat.
At every level, he’s better than 50% of the guys in the business today, and he wouldn’t get in the ring if he wasn’t. He holds himself to a very high standard, and I imagine he’ll probably look better than the guys he’s in the ring with because he’s always in good shape.
Steamboat coming back makes me want to come back again. I went back up to Lincoln and started training again. What else is there to do?”
It looks like Flair isn’t kidding. He tweeted the following on the occasion of his 50th wrestling anniversary:
“Thank You To Everyone Who Helped Me Celebrate My 50 Years In The Business! One Thing Is For Certain… I WILL NEVER RETIRE! WOOOOO! #50YearsOfFlair”
