During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, WCW/WWF Legend Ric Flair blamed social media for ruining professional wrestling.

The Nature Boy is worried that some pro wrestlers care more about the reaction of the Internet ‘Smart Marks’ on social media, than about advice given to them by Old School Legends & Veterans.

Here’s what Flair had to say:

“Some of them like Charlotte, and I’m not gonna list the talent, but there’s a lot of talent that understand you have to be able to put things in at times in the match when they are more meaningful.

AJ Styles is really good. It’s being able to turn the audience where they’re reacting to what you want them to, instead of them telling you what to do. A lot of guys listen to the audience, and then instead of listening to what Vince McMahon says in gorilla or Michael Hayes, they run to the computer to see what the fans are saying.

Some of these kids would rather have someone that knows nothing about wrestling say ‘God, that was cool’, when it was a living ****. In other words, only care about what the guy says that’s sitting in that chair.”

Ric Flair wrestled professionally for almost 50 years, from his official debut on December 10th 1972 until his (final?) retirement match on July 31st 2022, and has won countless Titles during his long illustrious career, including 16 (official) World Titles, several Tag Team Titles and many, many other Championships.

He also won the 1992 Royal Rumble match, which is still widely considered the single best Royal Rumble match in history.

The Nature Boy was the 1st man to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame twice.
