Ric Flair has revealed that he had an opportunity to get inside the ring with Lacey Evans. This would have been a turn up given that Lacey recently announced that she was pregnant, but it was still a possibility, as Ric would outline.
Ric Flair: I Planned To ‘Put On Sweat Clothes And Wanted To Work Out’ With Lacey Evans
In an interview with Busted Open Radio, Ric spoke on how the story had been written with only a rubber stamp on its approval getting in the way. But sadly, permission was denied due to the risk it may have put on Ric’s health. He said: “I did have some ideas.
“The problem was, they wouldn’t want me to get in the ring because it’s so hard to get me cleared because of my health issues. Even though I have been cleared by my doctors, I just don’t think that they are prepared to let me get in the ring.
“In case something happened, it would never be, like I could have 40 releases, but it would that, why the hell are you doing it? Why the hell did you let him do that?” So what would a potential collaboration have looked like? It is safe to say that Ric would not be getting back in the ring full pelt.
But we could have seen Ric showcase his signature moves and pass down his knowledge to the current generation. He added: “I actually wanted to, you know, put on sweat clothes and wanted to work out with her, which I thought would have been great.
“You know, teach her some things and just have her actually emulate my character. Yeah, doing the flips, suplex in, turn around, begging off. Oh, I had it all written down, but they wouldn’t let me get in the ring. I had the master plan; It would have been fun.”
With Lacey currently away on maternity leave, she does not look like she will be taking on this venture. And as for Ric, as each day passes, he is not going to get any younger. Nevertheless, if enough fans were to get behind such a cause, then who knows what may have been possible. We will have to see how this one will play out.
