Despite no longer being involved with WWE, Ric Flair believes Vince McMahon could still make an appearance for his final match this weekend in Nashville.
Since the shocking announcement of Vince McMahon’s retirement last Friday, fans have wondered what the former CEO’s next move will be. McMahon no longer has control over the creative aspects of WWE, nor does he need to attend weekly business meetings.
In short, it appears that the 76-year-old billionaire suddenly has a lot of time on his hands. One star who believes McMahon should use his free time to come to visit is Ric Flair. The WWE Hall of Famer is set to wrestle his final match this weekend as part of Starrcast, and it appears he’s inviting his former boss.
On the latest episode of his “To Be The Man” episode, Flair said that he wants McMahon to make an appearance at Starrcast and “roast” him. “The Roast of Ric Flair” has already been announced to take place in conjunction with the legendary star’s final match at the event.
“I’m trying to get [Vince] to come to Nashville now. I want him to roast me. He certainly has in real life enough! ‘Hey, these heels don’t draw, you stupid son of a b*tch. Don’t ever bring a lawyer to see me. I don’t like lawyers. Who are these two jackoffs?'”
Flair wrestled under McMahon throughout the early 90s and from 2002 until his retirement in 2008. WWE temporarily removed Flair’s signature “Wooo!” from their opening video package following the “Dark Side of The Ring” episode, which spotlighted the infamous “plane right from hell.” During that episode, a former flight attendant accused Flair of sexual harassment.
Despite being temporarily removed from WWE’s opening signature, the Hall of Famer had nothing but positive things to say about McMahon following the shocking announcement on Friday. When speaking about his relationship with McMahon, Flair said that the former CEO helped him get his life straightened out.
