During the latest “Wooooo Nation Uncensored” podcast, Ric Flair elaborated on what he has said on social media about WWE and he made it clear that he is doing well financially and he does not need a job.
Flair said, “I made more money last week in the first week of our podcast than I made in my first year of wrestling in 1973, so I’ll be ok. The day that I asked for my release, nobody fired me, I asked for it, I signed a contract that paid me more money for three years than I was making there, so let’s just leave it at that.” Flair continued, “The guy I work for is Ryan Fiterman, Fiterman Sports in Houston, TX. Money is not an issue.”
Mark Madden asked Flair, “Is there any truth that you were going to AEW?”
“No,” Flair said. “There were no discussions at all. I told Vince McMahon that my word is pretty much my bond unless they did something really stupid to me, then I would never go to work for the competition. Now they’ve done some really stupid stuff, so that door is open, but I have not talked to Tony (Khan). I have not heard a word from him. I watch all the shows. I appreciate the athletes and the people that are involved in it, but I’m not actively in discussion with anybody. Yes, I would go to work for Tony Khan. I will never go back to WWE.”
The podcast is up now on all podcast streaming apps.
