WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has reflected on a gimmick from his past that he believes is “the most humiliating thing” that he has ever been through.
At The Great American Bash in 1990 Sting finally unseated Ric Flair as NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, seemingly drawing a veil over their storied feud for the time being.
Two months later a man known only as The Black Scorpion appeared in WCW and had Sting firmly in their sights. Sting defeated The Black Scorpion at 1990’s Starrcade and when he unmasked the mysterious star after the bout, it turned out to be none other than Ric Flair himself.
Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, The Nature Boy reflected on that time in his career and says he could have nixed the idea but chose to be a team player:
“I did have the ability to make the call. I took one for the team. Do you think I like laying underneath that ring in St. Louis? A building that I sold out no less than 30 times as the NWA Champion?”
“That was the most humiliating thing I’ve ever been through in my life, and with how I conducted myself afterward. But I’m never the sh*ts.”
Ric Flair has also recently commented on Sasha Banks’ status and maintains that there is no way The Boss leaves WWE for AEW.
