Flair gave his opinion on Ricky Steamboat coming out of retirement to have one more match:
“I think it’s great. It’s one of those deals where nobody is ever going to be Ricky Steamboat, so you might as well just watch him when you can and enjoy the opportunity because there never will be another Ricky Steamboat. At any level, he’s better than 50 % of the guys in the business today. He wouldn’t get in the ring if he wasn’t. He holds himself to a very high standard. I’ll imagine he’ll probably look better than the guys he’s in the ring with because he’s always in great shape.”
Flair said he didn’t like the Joker gimmick Sting had in TNA:
“I didn’t like it. That doesn’t mean it was bad. I’ve told him a hundred times, I like the Sting with the crewcut, the blonde hair, and the vest, and I always will. I understood the other thing because some guys want to change. Taker became biker Taker for a while. That’s when I worked with him. He’ll always be The Undertaker and Sting will always be Sting. He won’t be remembered as Joker Sting. I can tell you that. He’s still an icon. He is an icon. He’s an active icon.”
