Will Flair Ever Wrestle Again?, Did Lawler’s Heart Attack Impact Him?, More

– WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently spoke with in an exclusive two-part interview. In the first part, The Nature Boy discusses WWE’s current product, his future, what he has left to contribute, some of WWE’s current talents and lots more.

Flair was asked if he will wrestle again:

WNZ: Will we see you wrestle again?

Ric Flair: I want to be in the ring, but it will never happen again. I said I’d never wrestle in WWE… and then there’s the Jerry Lawler incident.

WNZ: So Lawler’s heart attack has changed the perception of older wrestlers continuing to perform?

Ric Flair: Yeah, it really did. I like Jerry very much. What happened to Jerry was terrible, and thank God he’s OK. But I wish people wouldn’t gauge me by what happened to him. Everybody’s an individual. But I think it kind of put a decision on my future in the ring, you know what I mean? And that’s fine, because I went back to the ring in TNA, and that will never happen again.

The full interview can be read at where Flair gives props to three top WWE stars, reveals who he still keeps in touch with, if he would have tried MMA and what wrestlers would have been successful at it, if wrestlers need to be tough these days and more. Part 2 will be posted later this week and features Flair discussing his daughter working with WWE, his #1 goal with a WWE return, his run with TNA and more.

    I agree with Flair that you cant gauge one persons chances of having a heart attack against someone else. Heart attacks are often linked to either a family history of them or outside influences such as diet or drugs. In Lawlers case, he is somewhat overweight, which could have been a contributing factor if his diet consists of a lot of fatty foods.

    I dont need to see Flair in the ring anymore, but the heart attack of another wrestler has nothing to do with whether he should wrestle again or not.

    Would be a step up from 90% hugging.
