WWE Hall Of Famer The ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair has been regarded as one of the greatest pro wrestlers to have ever laced up a pair of boots in the world of professional wrestling. He is also a man full of controversies and has had trouble with a lot of pro wrestlers and pro wrestling personalities. One of them includes WWE legend Teddy Long. Bret Hart also recently called out Ric Flair for ‘flat out lie.’
Teddy Long has let people know about his past issues with Ric Flair before as well. According to Long, Ric Flair never liked him and even used racial slurs against him and never apologized. Teddy Long recently spoke to Gerald Brisco and John Bradshaw Layfield on their ‘Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw’ show. During the podcast, Teddy Long revealed that things between him and Flair were so grave that Gary Hart gave him a blade and told him to cut Flair’s throat so that he could protect himself.
He [Ric Flair] just didn’t like me period. You know what? And I can tell you a true story and Gary Hart, God rest his soul, Gary Hart looked out for me. Gary Hart knew how he, how Flair hated me and Gary Hart made me a blade. This is my right hand to God, I have no reason to lie. He made a blade for me and he gave it to me and he said to me, he said, ‘If he keeps on bothering you, you take this blade and you cut his Goddamn throat.’ Those were the words out of his mouth from Gary Hart.
