With a career spanning well over 4,000 matches, Ric Flair is among the most experienced pro wrestlers of all time.
His career was spread over five decades, wrestling for multiple top promotions during that time, putting him at the top of the list for young wrestlers seeking veteran advice.
However, Ric Flair has recently revealed why he has stopped offering advice to youngsters.
Ric Flair Shoots On How He Is Treated By Talent
During an appearance on Booker T’s “Hall of Fame” podcast, Ric Flair had the following to say about giving advice to up-and-comers.
“I’ve learned my lesson. It doesn’t do any good. When people say to me, ‘he’s a prick, he won’t help anybody.’ Everybody I have given advice to, that has asked me, and people have been very polite and asked me 100 times, especially when I was traveling with Ashley [Charlotte Flair], the young guys. They take my opinion, which I know what I’m talking about, and then they get in the car or walk up the ramp and they either look and see what the marks said about it or they talk to another guy who has a much experience as him or less, and that’s who they go with.”
“God forbid I know anything. I could critique these matches they’re having right now, but it’s not worth the aggravation, number one. Number two, my daughter works there and I’m not going to say anything except positive things.”
Ric Flair wasn’t finished there. While chatting with Booker T, Flair also hit out at wrestlers who make millions from social media that “couldn’t wrestle 30 minutes if they had to.”
Recently, Ric’s daughter Charlotte Flair revealed that she has had her eyes on beating her father’s record of 16 World Championships. Charlotte is currently in her fourteenth main roster Women’s Championship reign after defeating Ronda Rousey on the December 30th episode of SmackDown.
