• Ric Flair Reveals Why He Stopped Offering Advice To Newcomers

Ric Flair wrestled professionally 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.

Flair was the 1st man to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame twice.

During an interview on a recent episode of fellow 2-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T’s weekly podcast, The Nature Boy explained why he gave up on offering advice to pro wrestling rookies and newcomers.

Here’s what Flair had to say:

“I’ve learned my lesson. It doesn’t do any good. When people say to me ‘he’s a prick, he won’t help anybody’. Everybody I have given advice to, that has asked me, and people have been very polite and asked me 100 times, especially when I was traveling with [Charlotte Flair], the young guys.

They take my opinion, which I know what I’m talking about, and then they get in the car or walk up the ramp and they either look and see what the marks said about it or they talk to another guy who has as much experience as him or less, and that’s who they go with. God forbid I know anything.

I could critique these matches they’re having right now, but it’s not worth the aggravation, number one. Number two, my daughter works there and I’m not going to say anything except positive things.”
