Ric Flair comments on people who say Vince McMahon holds wrestlers back



Ric Flair's "Wooooo Nation Uncensored" podcast debuted today with Mark Madden as the host. Flair gave his thoughts on some of the current wrestlers including Kenny Omega, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, his daughter Charlotte, Sasha Banks, and others. He also commented on the AEW ratings, why wrestlers use his legendary chop and he shared some stories from his days in the ring.

On stories that Vince McMahon holds people back, Flair disagrees.

He said, “I know with WWE, if you’re really good, you’re going to be on TV. People complain about not having the opportunity or that they’re being held back. Well, you’re never going to be held back if you're better. I will never buy that as an excuse."

Flair said that wrestlers can talk to McMahon directly and he will give them a shot to prove themselves if they are good enough.

"If you’re better than somebody that’s on the show, and you knock on his door and say, ‘Mr. McMahon, I would like a chance to prove that I’m better than he or she’, he’ll give it to you. He’s not going to hold anybody back. In a lot of their minds, they’re better, but they’re not. It’s good to have self-confidence, self-esteem, and feel good about yourself, but he's not holding anybody back.”

The entire podcast is up now on all podcast streaming apps.
