Ric Flair on if now is the right time for Sting in WWE, Kim Kardashian, his thoughts on NXT
Royal Ramblings interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, who was promoting his upcoming one-man shows in the UK in May. Below are a few highlights:
If now is the right time for Sting to go to WWE: "I think it's long past due and I wish he'd come a long time ago. It wasn't from lack of effort on my part that he didn't. I'd been wanting him to come for a long time and I think it's a phenomenal way for him to finish up his career. I have so many favourite memories of working with him. One of them is our match when we wrestled for nearly an hour on clash of Champions against Wrestlemania. But one of his first matches was with me and every time I think of Sting, I don't have a bad memory. He was always a great guy, aside from being a phenomenal talent, he's one of the nicest guys I ever met."
If he saw the pictures of Kim Kardashian wearing a Flair-ish robe at the Grammys: "Yeah, I did see that! It proves that everybody wants to be Ric Flair in some way, shape or form! Football players, movie stars, you name it! I met Kim though, she was dating Reggie Bush, the football player and they were at my retirement in 2008 in Orlando. She's very nice and I get along with her great."
His thoughts on the NXT product: "I think that NXT is excellent. It allows the kids some time, they give them more time for the matches. It's the greatest, the truest form that anybody has ever put together of being as close to being on Raw or Smackdown as there is. It's tremendous and the production facilities are phenomenal. Hunter runs it like a business and it's a great opportunity for anybody that wants to get into the wrestling business."
Flair also talked about his favorite memory of wrestling in the UK, if Kayfabe is dead, not liking ribs, Charlotte's future and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
