Ric Flair Claims He'll Never Wrestle Again But Will Rock The World When Back On TV

Ric Flair continues to publicly proclaim he'll never wrestle again and he's blaming it on what happened to Jerry Lawler. Here's what the WWE Hall of Famer told The UK Sun:

“I want to be in the ring but it will never happen again.

“Firstly I said I’d never wrestle in WWE again. And then there’s the Jerry Lawler incident. It really did affect me. I like Jerry very much.

“What happened to Jerry was terrible, and thank God he’s OK.

“But I wish people wouldn’t gauge me by what happened to him. Everybody’s an individual.

“I think it kind of put a decision on my future in the ring, you know what I mean?

“And that’s fine, because I went back to the ring in TNA, and that will never happen again.”

He added: “I’ll rock the world when I get back on TV. You know that.

“You don’t even have to ask the question! Everyone knows I’ll rock the world. I’m very excited to get back in there soon.”

    Well, he did lose a retirement match after all – and those are always so very final. Flair does have a bad heart, brought about by his alcohol addiction and substance misuse – whereas Jerry hasn't done any of that and his heart is in better shape, he was just very unlucky. Up until this point, Flair has been extremely lucky – we don't want him to go the way of Mike Dibiase and others like that.

    Flair’s arms are looking huge for a guy his age. If that pic is any indication of what he’s currently looking like, he seems to be in better shape than I’ve seen him in quite awhile. I’m very happy that he’s made the decision to finally stop performing in the ring. The guy is the best ever and has absolutely nothing to prove to anyone. I would much rather remember him in his prime than have my memories of him tarnished by him trying to perform at this point in his life. His last WWE match with HBK was amazing. He wasn’t quite the Ric Flair of old, but he was pretty damn close. Which was amazing to me considering who he was in there with and because of his age at the time. I honestly can’t wait to see him back with WWE and hopefully in a prominent role as a big time players manager, like Ziggler, or as RAW GM. He would be great in either role. He was wasted in TNA and not utilized properly at all, and that came across in his performances. He just didn’t seem like he wanted to be ther and like he was just mailing it in half the time.
