Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff have had one long feud, and it doesn’t seem likely to end anytime soon. Recently, on To Be The Man podcast (h/t Subhojeet Mukherjee of Ringside News), the former asked why his ex-WCW boss singled him out as an example of when they worked together in WCW:
“Hopefully, he can explain to me why a guy that meant nothing to the company, according to him–had no value [and] was replaced by so many different people … why he chose me to make an example of rather than someone like Scott Steiner or the guys that didn’t go to take drug tests or why guys didn’t show up for our shows. Just why pick me? “What purpose did it serve to make an example of me and try to break me for taking my son to the AU nationals for a secondary show called ‘Thunder’ that nobody went to?”
These comments came in response to Bischoff saying said on his 83 Weeks podcast a couple of weeks ago (h/t Mukherjee) that Ric Flair didn’t draw any money in WCW after Ted Turner bought the promotion:
“Ric comes back to WCW and WCW still couldn’t make any money with him in ’93 and ’94, which is why I had to go out and get Hulk Hogan. Ric’s a great performer. Don’t get me wrong. He’s a legend. But when it comes to business, I had to do what I had to do, and apparently, that just rubs Ric the wrong way and he can’t let it go. I’m really sorry about that, but my God, let it go.”
This is a feud that doesn’t seem likely to see any resolution soon, but it does seem like Flair is in the right on this one, so it remains to be see if the two can bury the hatchet in the future.
