• Raw Star Reacts To Ric Flair Saying He’s The Best Heel In Wrestling Today
During a recent interview with WTMJ-TV Milwaukee, Intercontinental Champion The Miz was asked about Ric Flair calling him the best heel in pro wrestling today.
Below is what The Miz said:
“Ha! Is that what he said? Coming from him that’s an honor. Ric Flair – in my opinion – is the greatest of all-time. I mean he is absolutely incredible, I mean, he gave me his figure-four, how can I say a bad thing about him? You know what I mean? He’s just an incredible human being and incredible in-ring performer. And still, his legend lives on, no matter if he’s in the ring or outside the ring people still do ‘The Strut,’ give the ‘Woo!’ It’s amazing.”
• Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Clarifies His Statement, Not Trying To Get WWE Deal
During a recent interview with MMA Fighting, former UFC Heavyweight Champion & currently ranked #3 UFC Heavyweight Fabricio Werdum noted that he’s trying to negotiate a deal with WWE and that he wants to work for both WWE & UFC at the same time.
Below is what he said:
“I think that both (at the same time) is doable. You can do WWE. If I had the opportunity I’d fight there, no problem. It’s financially great. Fight at WWE, a spectacle that is fun to do. I’d definitely do it. I have a meeting Thursday about it, doing both (UFC and WWE). I want to fight, doesn’t matter where.
I’ll have this meeting Thursday in San Diego to see if something happens with WWE. It’s cool, a unique opportunity to do a few fights there as well. People think it’s easy, but it’s not. You have to be well trained to do those jumps, you have to be agile. It’s not easy as some people might think. It’s quite complicated. You have to be well trained and practice a lot to captivate the audience.
I’m fluent in Spanish, so I can do a character that speaks Spanish. That would be cool. I’d really like to have this opportunity to do this and captivate the Latin audience because they really love WWE. I’d be thrilled to do a fight there, or more, or a contract, because there’s no problem with the UFC since it’s not a real fight, it’s more of a show.”
Werdum has now clarified his statement and below is what he tweeted:
Hey guys to make it clear I spoke about maybe doing Lucha libre in México. Not WWE. I meant wwe style(pro wrestling) but I am a @ufc fighter and my focus 100% is fighting in the ufc and whatever decision I make after my fighting career @danawhite @Mickmaynard2 will be involved.
