The Nature Boy Ric Flair recently did an interview with Fanhouse.com. Below are a few highlights, you definitely will want to click on the link as they did an extensive interview and there is tons more. To the highlights:
On whether there has been a better tag team than Beer Money recently:
No, not in my estimation. Not in the past ten years. I can’t tell you when Shawn and Hunter are together but they’re not considered a tag team. The DX thing they did a couple times. These guys have been together for a while and they’re considered a tag team. So many of them split up but it takes time to make the chemistry between the two guys and, of course, their opponents. They are absolutely fabulous.
Will Shawn Michaels stay retired:
I’m not saying he won’t wrestle again but he’s got young kids and he’s been able to make money. He made money before the kids were born and he enjoys the things that I didn’t get to enjoy in regards to my first family. I did get to enjoy more with my second set of kids but at that point in time I really didn’t get to do much with them until the time they were about 12 or 13. His kids are like 6 and 3 or 6 and 4, maybe 7 and 4. He’s enjoying that day to day stuff that you don’t get to do as a wrestler working full-time because you’re gone every weekend.
On whether he was approached to wrestle Shane Douglas at Hardcore Justice and if so would he:
I never was approached. That is all a figment of his imagination. He wishes. He’s a clerk at Wal-Mart for Christ’s sake. How could he be a wrestler? I don’t wrestle clerks at Wal-Mart. (laughs) That’s the answer.
