Ric Flair On Match Vince McMahon Stopped – “He Was Furious”

Ric Flair

Ric Flair has talked candidly about a match he was having where Vince McMahon was so furious he walked out mid-way through to stop it.

It was back in 1992 when Vince McMahon, whilst at the time not known as the boss of the company to the public, stormed to ringside and caused a WWE Championship match which was being recorded for Prime Time Wrestling to be stopped.

The match, which was between title holder Randy Savage and ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, had plenty of outside interference, which is what drew the ire of the then WWE Chairman.

Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair has discussed how McMahon didn’t like how the match was playing and made sure things got changed.

He [Vince McMahon] didn’t like all the interference. It was two against one. He was furious about it. Curt [Hennig] was just doing what he thought was – nothing Curt did wrong. It was just one of those situations, I mean at the end of the night I just don’t think that people cared. And I don’t think Randy [Savage] wanted to lose the belt.

One McMahon had got his message across, Ric Flair went on to defeat ‘The Macho Man’ which led to a 41 day reign as title holder, before dropping the WWE Championship to Bret Hart.

Vince McMahon only retired as Chairman of WWE in 2022, and recently made his first public appearance since the announcement to celebrate his birthday.
