Ric Flair Chimes In On ‘Who Killed WCW?’ Debate, Vince Russo Fires Back

Ric Flair thinks he knows who killed WCW.

The 16-time world champion was enraged recently when he was left out of the Vice documentary “Who Killed WCW?”. They interviewed wrestlers for a three-part series to find out who was responsible for the company’s demise. However, this was without the help of one of their biggest stars in “The Nature Boy”

Instead, Ric Flair has taken to Twitter to give his opinion. The WWE Hall of Famer has blamed three men for the company’s death, blaming management for their decline.

Flair names Eric Bischoff, Vince Russo and Jim Herd as the three men responsible. This is despite Herd leaving the company in 1992, and the Time-Warner/AOL merger in 2000 being the beginning of the end of the company.

However, considering Jim Herd wanted Ric Flair to cut his hair and be called “Spartacus”, it is not a shock he doesn’t think highly of him.

Who Killed WCW?

On his Twitter account, Ric Flair wrote a lengthy post, saying:

“I’ve Tried To Lay Low On This But Let’s Face It- Who Killed WCW? It’s A Three-Headed Monster! Jim Herd, @EBischoff , And @THEVinceRusso!!!”

“There’s No Individual Wrestler Or Faction That Caused Anything To Kill WCW. It Was The People In Charge That Created Dysfunction, Animosity, And Tried To Divide And Conquer By Lying To Everyone And Involving Themselves In The Promotion Which Was The Ultimate Failure!”

“God, I Could Give You A Thousand More Examples. I Am One To Live Through All Three Nightmares And To Be Saved By The @WWE! Thank You To The WWE For Bringing Someone Who Was Dead In The Water As A Result Of These Three People Back To Life!”

Vince Russo ultimately replied to Flair’s initial post, subtly accusing Flair of being drunk during his latest rant. Russo said Flair was giving him too much credit for killing the company, noting that he gave Flair’s family plenty of television time and failed at laying low.

Flair then challenged Russo, Bischoff and Herd to meet him on stage for a debate, claiming it could be a pay-per-view event.

Russo said he gave Flair’s son, David, a push because he deserved it, and apologized to Flair for “making his life a living hell.” He concluded by saying he wanted to come clean to Flair for 25 years, and did it because Flair took a public shot at him.
