Ric Flair has been back on WWE TV recently, acting as Randy Orton’s manager/advisor and stirring the pot in segments with the likes of The Big Show and Christian.
However, it sounds like Flair isn’t too enamoured with the role and wants to get back to doing something more fitting of The Nature Boy.
In fact, he wants another title shot…
A 24/7 Title shot that is!
Flair was a guest on this week’s Busted Open Radio podcast where he expressed his frustration with his current role and his desire to get back into his old character again. Flair said:
“I keep wanting them to let me wrestle R-Truth for the 24/7 Title [Laughs]. I’m getting to the level where I’m comfortable. I’m like, ‘Can I just get into character one time?’ Talking generically is killing me. When you don’t do it, you’ve got to practice, and you get overwhelmed in terms of the points you have to make in terms of the pay-per-view and the people, I’ve always struggled with that. It’s so much fun for me and they’re doing everything possible to make sure the kids are being tested and everyone is wearing a mask. I have fun and won’t let them get down around me, and I don’t think they are, they all have a positive attitude.”
No question, Flair Vs R-Truth for the 24/7 Title would be comedy gold. Who wouldn’t want to see just a small dose of that?
