The war of words between WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff has continued with Flair branding Bischoff “an arrogant d*ck.”
During the nineties, Eric Bischoff was the man in charge of WCW and Ric Flair was still one of the key stars in the company. However, the men’s relationship became strained and Bischoff filed a lawsuit against Flair in the spring of 1998 accusing Flair of no-showing a live episode of WCW Thunder. That put Flair off television for five months until he returned to the company and continued his feud with Bischoff on-screen.
Now, a war of words has rekindled between the pair with Flair first taking issue with Bischoff and the former WCW President responding by calling The Nature Boy a “whiny baby.”
Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair retaliated, first by saying he had nothing bad to say about former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon before suggesting Eric Bischoff had little to do with WCW’s success in the nineties:
“Well, you know, you’re not going to get a negative word out of me. I love Vince McMahon. And I think that I think he should, you know, he’s entitled to whatever he wants. And, you know, shame on the people that don’t think so. He built it, nobody else built it, nobody helped him. He fought every war.”
“I mean, you’re talking about Eric, again, where Eric, you know, he says that they were the only competition or that Eric is called a visionary for that, you know, for 83 weeks? Well, all Eric did really is use all of Turner’s money, not his own. He has bought 83 weeks. He didn’t outsmart McMahon. He bought 83 weeks with somebody else’s money, which eventually bankrupted the company.”
“What Eric should have done basically when it comes to me, and I read about what he says about me, and I asked the people in the documentary when I saw what Eric said, it doesn’t change my opinion. He’s an arrogant dick.”
