Ric Flair Apologises To WCW’s 3-Headed Monster

Ric Flair

Ric Flair has called a truce.

Although the company ceased to exist more than 20 years ago, sections of the wrestling world can’t stop talking about WCW. The once-booming promotion has been back in the news in recent weeks with the arrival of a new documentary titled “Who Killed WCW?” determined to get to the bottom of its demise.

In response to the first episode, Ric Flair took to social media to blame the people for killing WCW, laying the blame at the feet of Vince Russo, Eric Bischoff, and Jim Herd. The comments stirred the pot between all involved once again and resulted in a back-and-forth between Flair and Russo.

However, as quickly as the beef began, Flair has now moved to put it to bed. In a new post on social media, Flair apologised to Bischoff, Herd, and Russo.

A Very Important Person In My Life Reminded Me Yesterday That Twitter Is The Weakest Form Of Communication. I Want To Take This Opportunity To Apologize To Jim Herd, @EBischoff, And @THEVinceRusso Because I Really Don’t Know. I Unfairly Judged You Without Knowing The Inner Workings And Behind The Scenes Of The Business On The Corporate End With People You Had To Report To And Work With.

I Wish On A Personal Note That All 3 Of Us Could Have Worked Together And Had Better Relationships! For Vince Calling Me The GOAT, I Appreciate That & You Did Help My Son To Pursue His Dream In Wrestling. I Am Going To Do Eric Bischoff’s Podcast, But It Won’t Be To Bury Anybody. It’s To Discuss Our Differences! @TheRock Is Making A Movie On My Life, And I’m In A Great Place! I Hope This Can All Be Put Behind Us!”

In a follow-up, Flair added:

“I’m Happy To See The Response To My Tweet. I Just Spoke To @EBischoff Personally And He’s At Peace, @THEVinceRusso Is At Peace, And Hopefully So Is Jim Herd. I Won’t Be Appearing On Eric’s Podcast Tomorrow As A Result Of Our Conversation, But I Wish Him The Best Of Luck & I’m Sure He’ll Knock It Out Of The Park!”

Vince Russo Responds To Ric Flair’s Apology

In response to the comments from Flair, Russo said he has no animosity towards anyone, adding he’s at “total peace.”

Life is way too short to hold any Grievances, Ric. Honestly, at this Point I don’t have any animosity towards anybody and I am at Total Peace. I appreciate your words this morning more than you will ever know. God Bless You, Sir.

Vince Russo signed with WCW in 1999 after helping the WWF overturn the company’s advantage during the Monday Night Wars. During his time at the creative helm, the writer came in for considerable criticism for several storylines, including booking himself as World Champion.
