Considering The Legacy of Ric Flair, more than half of the WWE Universe knew he would be fine even when WWE released him. However, there were some who thought The Nature Boy direly needed money and was desperately looking for a job.

Now, during his conversation with Mark Madden, Ric Flair clarified that he actually does not need any sort of work considering he is still getting paid by someone or something.

“I made more money last week when the first week of our podcast than I made in my first year of wrestling in 1973. So, I’ll be okay.”

The former WWE Superstar added that he is working with a reputed company that is already paying him. Hence, if anyone is concerned about his financial situation, he is absolutely fine!

“The day I asked for my release, nobody fired me. I signed a contract that pays me more money for three years than I was making there. Let’s just leave it at that. The guy I work for is Ryan Fiterman, Fiterman Sports, Houston, Texas. So, there you go.”

Even if he did not have other forms of payment, Flair has been in the industry long enough to have some form of passive income.

“There were no discussions at all. I mean, I you know i i told Vince McMahon and my word is pretty much my bond, unless they do something really stupid to me that I would never ever go to work for the competition. Now, they’ve done some really stupid stuff, so that door is open. But, I’m certainly not, I haven’t talked to Tony. I haven’t heard a word from him. I watch all the shows, appreciate the athletes and the people that are involved in it. But, I’m not actively in discussions with anybody.”
