WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair gave a scathing promo on Carlito on an episode of Monday Night RAW in 2007.
It seems Flair was not in the best mindset prior to giving the promo. The Nature Boy recently spoke to TalkSPORT, where he revealed he was having self-confidence issues during his final run in WWE.
It seems that before Flair cut his famous promo on Carlito, Vince McMahon gave him an earful just ten minutes before the promo.
What happened was, I just got my a** chewed up by Vince McMahon, literally ten minutes before that. Vince chewed my a** out and told me I needed to lead by example, not worry about what I was doing, that if he was worried he would take care of me.
But he had just worn my a** out. I walked back to the locker room and Bruce Prichard was there and he said, ‘We need you to do this promo’.
I said, ‘No problem!’ That’s the truth, there was no script. And I gave him everything Vince gave me and more!
Ric Flair would eventually retire from the WWE ring following his loss to Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 24 in 2008.
