Ric Flair Talks Possibly Inducting Sting into the WWE Hall of Fame, Reid Flair’s Name Being Used on Raw, His Podcast and More

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently spoke with Jim Varsallone of The Miami Herald to promote his appearance at the Magic City Comic Con this weekend at the Miami Airport Convention Center, and below are some interview highlights:

On possibly Inducting Sting in the WWE Hall of Fame:

“I would love to be that person… I haven’t been asked, but I would love to.”

WWE’s use of Reid Flair’s name on Raw:

“It was said that I was upset, but I wasn’t. Those kind of things are going to happen periodically. The emotion is real. She and Reid were very, very close. I certainly wasn’t offended by what happened [on Raw]. I just don’t like to see her cry. That was somebody’s thought, and she ok’d it. They said, ‘[Charlotte], do you mind if we do this?’ And she said, ‘No. I don’t mind at all.’ It’s the business, and sometimes things that are real come across in a way that the people are mad about it, but if I’m not mad, and [Charlotte’s] not mad, and we’re the key players.”

His podcast:

“[Podcasts] can be very lucrative. I’m heading down to do one right now with Chris Jericho. It’s fun, and you learn form them. My problem is I can’t critique the [WWE] show, because my daughter’s on the show, and I’m still actively working for the company. The other guys who do podcasts can critique the show, but I wouldn’t be caught dead doing that.

Actually, I don’t have anything negative to say about it anyway, but if there was something I thought, I couldn’t possibly say it, because I would basically be cracking on the hand that feeds me. I don’t feel like there’s anything negative on the show anyways.”
