While doing an interview with the Miami Herald, Ric Flair talked a little bit about the Whooooo! Nation podcast interview show that he hosts weekly. He stated that the industry can be rather lucrative for the performers if done right. Flair, however, noted that his handicap in the game is that he cannot criticize WWE as much as he wants to because both he and Charlotte are under contract to the company.

During his latest podcast interview, Ric Flair shared a backstage story about a big fight that he had with Randy Savage when the two of them were in WCW. Triple H had just received a contract offer from WWE because he did not want to sign for $250,000 with World Championship Wrestling. Savage wanted to squash HHH in a 30 second match. Flair said that he refused to let that happen because he did not feel that it was right.

One of the more interesting revelations that was made during the podcast interview that Kurt Angle did with Ric Flair was the fact the latter was the one that convinced the former to avoid signing a contract with WCW. Flair had several issues with the front office, so he advised Angle to sign with WWE instead. He even stated that he handed him the phone number to Vince McMahon, so that he can initiate the negotiations personally.

Her name value really means a lot, and she could end up working a program with Charlotte. As many of you already know, their legendary fathers, Ric Flair and Tully Blanchard, were a part of the Four Horsemen stable together.
