Ric Flair has openly discussed his present-day relationship with former rival Bret Hart.
WWE Hall of Famer’s Ric Flair and Bret Hart have previously been at odds for many years with both stars often critical of one another. However, that all seems a thing of the past with the two legends having now seemingly formed a close bond.
“How about me and Bret Hart this weekend? I mean I took a picture, I was thinking to myself we used to call each other everything in the world for 30 years and now we’re like best friends and that’s the way it should be. The business could make the rift, the business makes us all a di*k at some time one time or another.”
“Now with social media, it makes it even worse. You look back and regret things you said or even thought about because it makes – at the end of the day what did you gain by it? What a moment of satisfaction – it’s just ridiculous. I had a great time with Bret this weekend,”
Bret Hart was also in the crowd in Nashville for Ric Flair’s last match alongside Undertaker and Mick Foley. The Hitman later revealed that he spoke with the 16-time World Champion after the bout and congratulated Flair on his final outing.
