• “The most insensitive company in the world” – Ric Flair On WWE After Recent Event
Ric Flair recently announced his break-up with Wendy Barlow.
Flair met Wendy in the early 90s, when she was Fifi the French Maid in WCW. However, they became a couple years later.
On his podcast, Flair expressed his displeasure about no one from WWE calling to check on him after his break-up.
Below is what The Nature Boy said:
“I’m gonna talk about the issues that went down between myself and Wendy, and everybody wants to just be negative.
What disappoints me is that she still runs my business affairs and handles my personal life. There’s nothing wrong with our relationship. I am really difficult to live with because I want to travel. I like to sign autographs.
She did that for like 9 straight years, and she just got tired of it and I get it. But what killed me is that Charles Barkley, Darius Rucker, Kid Rock can call me and say, ‘Is everything cool?’, which they have, and I go, ‘Yeah, everything’s great.’ Life changes and goes in different directions. Not one person from WWE called.
The most insensitive company in the world, people that I’ve given my life to, and they’ve given me a lot of theirs. None. So you see how it goes. When you’re not there, they don’t care.
I don’t resent them for it, but I noticed. I know who reached out to me and who reached out to her, who didn’t. So if you’re that insensitive, shame on you.”
When asked if people in wrestling didn’t reach out to him, Flair replied:
“Oh, yeah. Yeah. I’m just saying, neither company.
Executives have, but I’m talking about my wrestling friends. It’s wrestling. And that’s why the lessons that should be learned is that when you are so wrapped up in your life as I was, now I look back on my career and I say, ‘Well, you know what? I don’t feel so bad because I wasn’t around either.’ It’s a full time job being a wrestler.”
While the two are no longer in a relationship, it looks like Flair isn’t over Wendy. Wendy recently posted a photo of herself in a bikini.
Flair reposted that photo and wrote the following:
“WTF!!! Naitch Better Quit Wandering And Get To Rosemary Fast! ✈️ WOOOOO! 🔥 ”
