• Ric Flair Recalls A Wild Night Out With The Undertaker
2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair recently spoke to metro.co.uk, where he discussed his friendship with The Undertaker.
Below are the highlights:
On having fun with The Undertaker:
“I’ll shoot him a text and joke around. We didn’t hang around every day but when we’re together know we have fun! [laughs]
He knew how to get the best out of me! He runs from me now because he knows! I lost a Rolex with Taker one night [laughs].
‘Oh God, Horace Grant with the Bulls – every time I see that Last Dance field. Horace has got a brother Harvey who plays for the Bullets.
We and Taker and Harvey Grant were out one night – and I lost a Rolex, which is a whole different part of the story [laughs]. Trying to hang with him and that Jack Daniels man, it’s tough. We’ve had so much fun!”
On his friendship with Taker:
“Obviously you recognize the unbelievable athleticism of this guy that is 6-10, over 300 pounds.
It’s just a matter of time whether he finds that bit or somebody finds it for him, that guy is going to be something in this business.
When I agreed to come back to work it was never to wrestle. I just look back and say, ‘God if I could have just gone into the ring and felt like I did when I walked out, so much better it could’ve been’.
I was so nervous wrestling Taker – when anybody in the world would be so excited to walk down that ramp and I was horrified.
Once we got going – and he knew, I told him, it’s hard to tell somebody ‘I’m struggling’. Well, Ric Flair’s got a problem guys.
I’ve always been so comfortable with him, I had no problem telling him. And he got it.”
