TalkSPORT recently interviewed Ric Flair, and The Nature Boy discussed various things. Flair revealed one instance when Vince McMahon berated him ten minutes before he did a shoot promo on Carlito.
“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!”
For context, Carlito was leaving the arena before Raw could end and Ric scolded him for that in 2007 during a backstage promo.
Flair said that Carlito was “a lazy, underachieving son of a b—-” and that he didn’t have a passion for wrestling.
