Ric Flair is a living legend, and throughout the course of his career he’s done just about all there is to do in the world of professional wrestling.
The 16 time World Champion got to compete at WrestleMania several times, but The Nature Boy doesn’t think he ever had a good match on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Flair recently joined the Wrestling Inc. podcast and he straight up said that he doesn’t think he ever had a good WrestleMania match.
“No, I don’t think I had a good Mania match. Nothing that Ric Flair could deliver on. I think I could have been really good with Randy [Savage] but he was so preoccupied. That was the last time he and Liz were together. That day was the last time they were together – they went their separate ways. They weren’t living together at that time. I’m not 100 percent sure on what the exact living conditions were but, to my knowledge, they weren’t together and Randy was so upset. We got through it and it was okay. But I would never want to be remembered for that match by any means.”
Ric Flair did go on to say that his retirement match against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 24 was his favorite, but he went into the match with a lack of confidence.
“Well, that would be my favorite with Shawn, of course. But, once again, I had no self-confidence going into that ring and he made it so easy for me. But once again, I walked out of that ring saying to myself, ‘Why couldn’t I have been me for just 30 minutes?’ I don’t have any aches or pains. I already know that I’m a cosmetic nightmare walking in, so that’s on your mind.”
