• Stephen A. Smith To Manage A Heel Wrestler At WrestleMania 39?
Ric Flair appeared on ESPN First Take and told host Stephen A. Smith the following:
“Stephen A., I just got the word passed along. Because WrestleMania’s in California, they know you love California, I think they’re entertaining the idea of having you manage one of these guys that can’t talk too well (laughs).”
Stephen then said the following about this WrestleMania 39 offer:
“Listen man, Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan, Paul Heyman and these guys, I would love to be one of these bad guy managers. I want to be the bad guy. I don’t want to be one of the goodie two-shoes guys. I think I could pull it off.
If they want me to be a bad guy manager, here’s the problem: nobody can touch me. I’m going to have that as part of my contract. I’m too fragile.”
