During his conversation with Conrad Thompson, he revealed that he could never bring himself to be in a position similar to Bret Hart’s. He doesn’t want to come across as bitter when he walks down the WWE building.

“What I do want to do is be able to walk into the building and not have people say, ‘God, he’s bitter, he’s old, and he’s gonna continue to knock people. I couldn’t live like that. And calling Roman Reigns the next Triple H or cracking on him.

“I mean, how uncomfortable is that for people in the family to walk around in front of Hunter [Triple H]? And Shawn [Michaels], who is an integral part of the company. NXT, that’s part of the company, right? What else? Jerry Lawler… ‘Jerry Lawler hit me with a chair too hard.’ Wow, okay… I don’t understand it. I don’t ever wanna be that lonely.”

However, Bret Hart took to social media to clarify that his comments about comparing Roman Reigns and Triple H are from an interview that happened quite a while ago.

The last time WWE booked Ric Flair in a storyline

It’s been a while since the WWE Universe saw Ric Flair in a segment or being inside the ring for a promo.

His last storyline involved a romantic angle with Lacey Evans. It started with Flair picking Evans as his protege instead of his daughter, Charlotte Flair.

The storyline ended when Evans announced she was pregnant, and WWE used the opportunity to make it look like Evans was carrying Ric Flair’s child.

Finally, Charlotte Flair and her father cut a promo backstage where she asked him to go home. She claimed this was her time to shine, and her father’s time was up.
