Ric Flair Discusses What He Is Doing Now, Working With EA, A Possible Return To Wrestling

Written by Richard Gray on Jan 28, 2009 - 1:20:59 PM

IGN has an article online where Ric Flair discusses his involvement in the Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising videogame. Below are the highlights from the piece:

What he is doing now: "I'm doing a lot of stuff very similar to what I just did with EA. Not quite at that level, but I'm doing appearances and working with Coca-Cola and Wal-Mart," Flair told IGN. "A lot of the notoriety that I achieved from wrestling and that fantastic weekend of my retirement has driven the value of my character, which is me actually, way up and opened a lot of doors and created a lot of opportunities for me. I'm really enjoying myself, but I am busy."

Working with EA: "The funnest part of it was just to be involved with EA because they're so huge. I don't see John Madden being any bigger a character than me, so I wish I could have been 'Commander Flair,' but 'Commander Hill' works," Flair explained to IGN. "Nothing about it stressed me out, and the people at EA are some of the most wonderful people I've ever met in any phase of life. It was really enjoyable and very first class. Commander Hill is just a grizzled old vet who comes back and he's beside himself and is giving orders and taking nothing from anybody, standing firm on his position and thought process. I wish I could tell you it was hard work, but it wasn't. I really enjoyed every minute of it."

Possibly returning one day to manage his son Reid: "I would love to manage my youngest son someday," Flair told the publication. "I could get in the ring and roll around right now. When I said that I won't wrestle again I meant that I won't put on my tights and wrestle, but if they want to bounce me around I'm ready. I'm actually holding Reid down a little bit because I want him to grow a little more physically and become… it's not mature… He's going to have a lot of pressure on him because of who I've been and what I've done, which is unfortunate. But, that's just the way it is. I'm pretty hands on with him right now and he's learning and he's getting good. He's bigger and he's stronger and he's really handsome and he's got a phenomenal amount of personality, which is very important to being successful at that level."
