Two-time WWE Hall Of Famer, Ric Flair recently spoke with Busted Open Radio to address why he called out Shawn Michaels in his recent YouTube video.
For those who don’t remember, the Nature Boy took to YouTube shortly after his most recent surgery to cut a major promo on his health, where he took a shot at both JR and Shawn Michaels about what they said during his 30 For 30.
Flair revealed the reason he did that was that he was hurt by what they said in the documentary:
“What I said was because he hurt my feelings, I was not questioning who he is,” said Flair. “I called up Jim Ross (for JR’s comments in the documentary) and cussed him out, but Jim was telling the truth. When you open yourself up (like he did) in that 30 for 30, you take the good with the bad.
“I didn’t like what my own kids said about me. Anyone who knows me knows, if I have it in my pocket, it’s theirs. I can assure you they all lived great lives. Was I there? No. It was a tough schedule and it is now. But you cannot even compare it to not coming home for three months.”
Flair also spoke about why he did the entire video in the first place:
“I just said, ‘Hell, I’m going to say what I think and what I feel,’ exclaimed Flair. “I had to rest for two days after I made that video. I was just making a point because I was losing business opportunities, people were thinking maybe he isn’t going to come around. So, I had to do something to show some energy, just wanted to be energized and show people I still had it.”
