Ric Flair battled with anxiety

During an interview with “Ariel Helwani”, the 16-time world champion opened up about his anxiety and the people who helped him through it.

“Thank god I could talk. Didn’t throw off my thought process with talking. It seems to be all forgotten, but the truth is that there are certain people, and you’ll find that out as you get older, there are people in your life that you’re never gonna ever forget, for being there when you needed them.”

“They didn’t need to be there. That would be Vince [McMahon], Hunter [Triple H], Stephanie [McMahon], my daughters, you know what I mean.”

We hope everyone has the courage to speak up about their issues and not shy away because of society. Mental health issues are as important to deal with as other health issues. And when someone like Ric Flair talks about them, it gives others the confidence to do the same.
