Ric Flair Was Cleared To "Get Physical" At Crown Jewel PPV, But Got Nixed By Vince McMahon

Ric Flair Was Cleared To "Get Physical" At Crown Jewel PPV, But Got Nixed By Vince McMahon

Recently The Nature Boy Ric Flair was interviewed by WrestlingInc where he opened up about being cleared to physically take part in the Crown Jewel PPV, but ultimately got nixed by Vince McMahon.

Below are some excerpts from the interview:

“Yes… well, no, not wrestle a match. I could get knocked down. Could I wrestle a match? Yes… but I couldn’t because it would take me so long to get in that kind of shape. But I could be involved in a spot or take a bump,” said Flair.

“When I sit ringside and you see the speed and how fast the guys move, you think that at one time I was doing that. It’s amazing and now I see why people buy those ringside seats as you have a whole new appreciation. But getting back, if I could have just fed Roman after he cleaned the house – boom, take a bump on the apron or the floor – they would have gone nuts. Roman winked at me and pointed to his heart and shook his head [laughs].”

“I got cleared medically to do something in Saudi and then Vince nixed it. If I would have fed Roman in that huge comeback he made, or tapped Hogan, that would have been the coup de gras. You just wanna give them everything they paid for and sometimes if you’re not physically involved, you feel like you’re not giving everything you had if you’re not physical.”
