• Ric Flair Rips Wrestling Veteran For Saying He’s Full Of Sh*t
On July 31st 2022, Ric Flair has his ‘Last Match’, where he teamed up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to defeat the team of Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal.
Flair passed out twice in the match, as he was dehydrated. He even faked a heart attack during the match, when he was brawling outside the ring.
Ric even passed out during the finishing sequence, when he put Jarrett in the Figure 4 Leg Lock.
This match was ranked #3 in the Wrestling Observer’s “Most Disgusting Promotional Tactic” of 2022.
While addressing this criticism on his podcast, Flair revealed that he made $300,000 for this match:
“I don’t pay attention to that. You know what I got to say to that? I made $300,000. Go f**k yourselves. That’s right, I made $300,000 disgusting you! Disgust yourself for 300 grand and get in the shape that I got in. How about that, motherf**kers?”
Dutch Mantell (fka Zeb Colter in WWE & Uncle Zebekiah in WWF) wasn’t happy with what Flair said on his podcast, and went on to say the following on his own podcast:
“I’ve had people write me and, seriously, people thought he was gonna die. I think he passed out a time or two in there. He doesn’t even remember it.
Ric Flair now is trying to leave a legacy and he should have left it alone, or changed a lot of things in that match, because his legacy now is tarnished.
Ric Flair is full of s**t and always has been.
The fans should be saying it to him, ‘Screw you, Flair’. The tickets weren’t cheap for that match either. I don’t know what the ringside was, I think it was like 50 or 100 dollars.
That’s a pretty expensive ticket for just a big independent show, even [though] Ric Flair was on it. I would never, ever, ever say F-U to the fans who knock me for a legitimate reason.”
The Nature Boy didn’t like what Dutch said and went on to tweet the following:
“Thank God They Used The Word Veteran & Didn’t Call You A Legend. Just A Miserable Old Wrestler Trying To Make A Buck. And BTW, You Never Had A Legacy To Begin With. WOOOOO!”
