Ric Flair Says His Roddy Piper Stories Were Cut Out Of A&E Biography
As a guest on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, Ric Flair spoke of his frustration with his recent listing with Lacey Evans. Flair also talked about his historic nightlife in all his activities and described how crazy his plan was for the day. The 16x World Champion said it would travel between three different cities in one week, hold one-hour games in those cities, then stay up all night, and then get up to go to the next city.
“When I had a big problem and I did a lot of wrong things, I behaved badly at a very high level, as I worked hard, separated Ariel, you can’t,” Flair said. “Sydney, Australia Wednesday hour, St. Louis Friday hour, Tokyo Sunday hour, that was just one week. I drank a few drinks and then left. That was an example of how my schedule worked and was an hour every night. ”
Flair also spoke about his relationship with celebrities during his fight, namely Charles Barkley. Flair said he and Barkley, a former NBA player and NBA member at TNT, had shared some amazing stories over the years.
“I’ve met all those guys back in the 90s and some of them in the 80s, especially Charles Barkley,” Flair said. “Man, I would like someone to follow me and Barkley right now. I just saw him, he has a place in the Four Seasons in Atlanta, he has his condo. He is a court official in the city of Atlanta. ”
During WWE A & E’s latest biography on “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Flair said no stories about him and Piper at the beginning of their work were shown. Flair explained what he told A&E, which was the time when he and Piper left before Piper had a contract with WWE.
“They didn’t play the same story I and Piper told them, can you believe that?” Said Flair. “Ariel, you have no idea. He took me with him when he was unemployed, a year before he went to WWE, and I took him to Puerto Rico and Japan, he had one trip to Japan and he never did. He did not leave before the deadline but asked him to stay for a few more days. ”
Living a gimmick in and out of the ring, Flair talked about the difficult situations he had in front of his four former wives. Nature Boy said he did not behave well in the past and lived up to his art and believes he is really the best and wanted to show it every night in the ring and outside the ring.
“It had to be very difficult to get married to me because of my schedule and the way I sold myself,” says Flair. “I know the difference between support and control. No one is telling you [Ariel] how to format your program, I can guarantee that, because you are the only one who knows what to do. External distractions become so numerous that it is impossible to live with them, it was my story a few times. Trust me, I did a lot of damage when I just misbehaved, there is no other way to put it. Not out of control, I was immoral, I was Ric Flair and I wanted the world to think about it and I didn’t care if I was married or not.
“That was not about women, it was just me living life. I wanted to be someone who spent a lot of money, I wanted to wear the best clothes, I wanted to buy everyone drinks, that’s all true. I can’t explain to you how I can forgive that, but that was my way of thinking because I thought I was the greatest. I thought I was Joe Namath and all the others were put together. When Joe Namath bought a mink coat, I bought a mink coat. There is a young man here in Atlanta named Friedman Shoes, who is famous all over the world, and I bought 135 crocodile shoes from him. ”
