Ric Flair appeared on â€œBusted Openâ€ on Sirius radio on Tuesday and revealed what Vince McMahon was to him coming out of retirement and wrestling overseas. “I told Vince McMahon about three months ago that I wanted to back and work and that Iâ€™d just work overseas. He said, â€˜You know, go for it.”
Flair added, “Iâ€™m in good health. I like to sign autographs and Iâ€™m really enjoying (non-wrestling projects), but thereâ€™s nothing like wrestling. Iâ€™ve been working out really hard and Iâ€™m looking forward to it. It gives Hulk (Hogan) and I a chance to see if weâ€™ve still got it going on.”
Flair was also asked about the possibility of appearing as a guest host on WWE Raw. “That may still happen,” he said. “My schedule hasnâ€™t allowed it to happen. I work with Coca-Cole, Krogers, Wal-Mart, and Samâ€™s Club. The lottery thing has been huge to me. I canâ€™t give enough credit to the North Carolina education lottery for giving me the opportunity to work for them. Itâ€™s been great.”
The Busted Open radio show airs on Tuesdays and Fridays 4-5 p.m. EST on Sirius 127, and XM 242. Visit Sirius.com for more info.
