Hold onto your butts, coconuts, ‘cuz you’re about to hear Ric Flair explain one of his most obvious all-time life regrets. And no, we don’t mean investing in all of his wrestling progeny faith in David (though that’s probably also true).
Shawn Michaels guested on the latest episode of The Ric Flair Show, where the Nature Boy told his WrestleMania 24 opponent that he regrets wrestling after that match, and, more specifically, wrestling for TNA:
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.
Whoa, shocking, right? The rest of the episode is actually kinda cute, with Michaels revealing that he had matching custom Rolexes made for their ‘Mania match. He explained that he wanted to be just like Flair, even if it was just for a day. Good call on that length of time, Shawn. Your bank account and your liver are probably very thankful for that choice.
