Further, Ric said, “He said to me, ‘Look, everybody knows the story of Ric Flair. And if I have to hear that Ric Flair’s story, I’m not going to sit down and lunch with you guys ever again’. He said, ‘I don’t want you to come up here and try to prove anything to anybody’.” The WWE legend further added that Vince asked him to be just a regular guy and put Earl Hebner with him to take care of.

Well, “The Nature Boy” certainly impressed with his in-ring skills in WWF/WWE. He is also a two-time WWE Hall of Famer, first inducted with the class of 2008 and again in 2012.
