    Question ric flair won't do anything physical anymore

    credit pwinsider



    PWInsider reports that word coming out of RAW is that WWE no longer wants Ric Flair doing anything really physical. While he threw some chops at Big E Langston on RAW, don't expect him to take any bumps or get into any brawls on WWE TV. There is some sort of health issue that WWE is concerned about with Flair. The feeling is that they would rather be safe than sorry

    Not surprising considering he's retired and what happened to Lawler.

    Good call on the WWE's part, I'm fine with him doing nothing more then occasionally locking in the Figure Four.

    So after all these years Flair has finally made it. Nice.

    This makes sense considering how old he is. Good choice WWE!

    Yeah good choice. But I bet this wasn't what Flair had in mind

    To be perfectly honest the less we see him the better. Not that I don't like him or anything, but he's not going to really offer much so I like this. Nothing can happen to him if he's not trying to do a hell in a cell.

    Does that include elbow dropping his jacket?

    He got a bad blood clot in Japan recently, I think this stems from that.

    If only this report was dated March 26, 2001!

    Now I'm hoping for a press release that says "Ric Flair won't be doing anything anymore". Flair has always sucked. Just cut him loose already. Marble mouthed son of a b!tch!

    Yeah it's the right call to make. Flair probably wouldn't be thrilled about it but it is the right thing, for Flair's well-being. Does this include his elbow drop on the jacket? and his fall down face plant in the ring though?

    And yet Jerry Lawler says in a recent interview that he wants to wrestle again even after his own heart attack... Guess he's gonna be disappointed as well.

    He'll still be able to wrestle in Memphis like he was fairly regularly before the heart attack.

    Considering what King was eating on RAW a few weeks ago, I don't think he'll listen to anyone and he'll wrestle if that is what he wants to do.

    There's also ads here in the town where I live that Lawler, Rikishi, Trevor Murdoch and The Genius will be wrestling at The Giant Flea Market about four minutes from where I live. Billy Gunn was here just last year, too.

    It's still sad that Lawler would get back into the ring at his age after just receiving a heart attack recently.

    Flair will still get dates elsewhere probably, just nothing physical in WWE. I just don't think he will ever stop competing altogether until he is dead.
