Ric Flair recently discussed his match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 18 during an interview with WrestlingInc. Check out some interview highlights below.
“Mark carried me, but we did have a hell of a match. I eventually got comfortable, and that turned out to be a hell of a match. I think everyone liked it. I mean, once again I’m like 59 in 2008, so in 2002 I’m what, 54? I don’t know. But we did have a hell of a match, it was just great. Once again, Mark carried me.”
“We discussed [the match recently] because after The Last Ride, he talks a lot about his insecurities. His were around his physical stuff. He had health problems, you know, bad bad and all that, which caused him to be insecure. Mine was all mental. We share that in common. Self-confidence, whether it’s your body holding up or your mind being able to do it and being able to perform at the level that everybody thinks you can, it doesn’t matter how many times Hunter would say to me, ‘Goddamnit, you’re Ric Flair. Go out there and just be yourself.’ It goes in one ear and out the other. You shake your head yes and you walk through the curtain and it’s just not there. I think that’s just due to being beaten down for so long. But I still really enjoyed the time [with Evolution], you know, they’re such great guys, Randy, Hunter, and Dave.”
