• “You never admit you got your a$$ kicked, much less being horrified or terrified” – Ric Flair To Seth Rollins
During the latest episode of his podcast, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair discussed the recent attack on Seth Rollins by a fan.
Flair wasn’t happy with how Rollins said during an interview with TMZ that the attack was terrifying.
Here’s what The Nature Boy said:
“In all fairness, I could say a lot of cute things, but I’m not going to. Every time I say something, I have to involve other people and they have to endure the consequences, so I’m just going to say this. I’ve seen that happen, but I’ve never seen it where I recall the mark, the fan, clearly was getting the better of the individual.
My problem with Seth is if you’re a top guy in this business, and you know anything about the psychology of what the fans think and feel, which they really do, you never, ever, ever, get off an airplane in L.A. and say, ‘I was terrified.’ Terrified of what? Terrifying is being in an airplane crash.
You were terrified or horrified by a wrestling fan? Come on, man. What I would have done if I was Seth, which everybody should learn from this, is that even if the referees had him, I would have jumped back on him, even if I never got a shot at him. I know your answer is going to be, ‘Well, there’s lawsuits and all of that’. The WWE would have covered the lawsuit. Seth never would have got to him.
If you’re a heel, you never admit defeat. You just don’t do it. Do you think I’ve ever beat anybody? No, but in the minds of most people, I didn’t lose because I kept lying about it even though it was a work. You never admit you got your a$$ kicked, much less being horrified or terrified. Please.
You got to be tough to be in this business, period. Even today. These kids are tough. I’ll tell you right now and I can’t help but bring her in, Ashley (Charlotte Flair’s real name) can kick anybody’s a$$…second generation kids are taught to be tough. Roman Reigns, The Usos. I’m such fan of kids that had to really be tough and just survive in life.
If you’ve been a real athlete and really competed at a tough level you’re tough. You’re mentally tough, you’re physically tough and you’re honed and trained – if that same thing happened to Ashley hypothetically, I don’t know if the guy could have taken Ashley down. She’s tough, man.
You don’t think Tamina’s tough, or Nia Jax, or, Nattie Neidhart, are you kidding me? They came up in families where you had to be tough.”
