“If Brett Favre can come back once in a while, I certainly can” – Ric Flair.
– In an interview with the Associated Press, Ric Flair says the chances of him wrestling again are very likely. “I would like to, but I’m not going to do anything to rock the boat,” Flair said. “I’m in the same kind of shape I was last year when I retired. It’s hard to stay away from something you like so well, especially when you still feel like you can do it. If I did wrestle, it would be overseas, it wouldn’t be here.”
Flair currently serves as an “ambassador” for Ring of Honor and thinks the promotion’s young talent has a lot to offer. “I do like working with the young guys and talking to them a lot,” Flair said. “They’ve got some great kids. It’s very professional. I wouldn’t put my name somewhere I didn’t think was professional.”
The interview also talks about how Flair hopes WWE will continue to let him work for ROH. “They don’t look at Ring of Honor as being competition to them,” Flair said. “If everybody just focuses on their own brand and what they’re trying to accomplish instead of worrying about the other guy, it usually works out much more better.”
Still, as much as Flair likes being around the action, he still has the urge to walk that aisle and wrestle again. “In my gut, I do,” he said. “Do I think I will? Yes. I’m not going to take no easily. Like I’ve said, I haven’t retired, they retired me.”
