On a recent episode of “The Ric Flair Show” on the MLW Radio Network, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair interviewed fellow Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels about Michaels’ career and their matches against one another.
During the podcast, the conversation turned to Flair and Michaels’ match at WrestleMania 24 in 2008, which at the time was to be Flair’s retirement match. Flair notes that he now regrets wrestling after that match and going to TNA, where Flair worked from 2010 to 2012 and wrestled several matches for the company.
Yes, I do [regret wrestling again after WrestleMania 24]. There [are] a couple of things I regret. Number one was ever going to work for TNA. That’s my own fault. It was just a lot of money to wrestle 65 days a year, right? 65 days and make a lot of money. Do you know what I mean? Not WWE money, but pretty good money to do nothing. And I made a lot of friends. I like Kurt Angle very much and I like [James] Storm and [Bobby] Roode. I liked AJ [Styles]. Everybody treated me great. I mean, I don’t have any bad things to say about TNA or the people there at all. After being in the WWE, it’s pretty hard to work any place else because you’re always comparing them no matter how hard you try not to.
