The text message of Undertaker’s phone call to Ric Flair after the “Final Farewell” retirement ceremony at Survivor Series was revealed on the Wrestling Inc. podcast today. New Day ‘surprising’ Undertaker in WWE locker room just revealed.
Taker said, “Happy Thanksgiving, champ! Thank you for running this business and setting the bar for greatness! The bar that we all strive to reach and that very few have approached! So, now and forever, you are “The Champion” !! I am very proud to call you my friend. “
Flair recalled wrestling with Undertaker at WrestleMania 18 in 2002, “That’s when Mark carried me off, but we had an amazing fight. In 2002, I was 54 years old, but we had an incredible match, which was great. After The Last Ride, talk about [how] he also had some insecurities. His were related to health problems, back problems and the like, which made him feel insecure. Mine was all mental, but we shared it in common.
Self-confidence, it doesn’t matter if your body is holding on or your mind and being able to do it and perform at the level that everyone thinks it can, no matter how many times Hunter (Triple H) tells me, ‘Damn! You are Ric Flair! Get out there and relax. Be yourself ”. It goes in one ear and out the other.
You shake your head and say “yes,” and then you walk through the curtain and it’s just not there. And I think that’s because they’re beating me up for so long. I still really enjoyed that time and such good guys, Randy [Orton], Dave [Batista and] Hunter. How cool is that? Correct?!”
Flair also commented that Eric Bischoff reached out to him after the death of his son Reid: “When my son died… I don’t think we were best friends, but when something like this happens, or when I get sick like I did or something that really upsets his life, those are the people who appear, “said Ric. “And I can remember driving around town about three days after his death. Eric called on the phone because he was devastated. I was absolutely devastated.
I can remember the people who called and the people who didn’t. If they couldn’t come, they would call or text me. Those are the people who count, or in the same way, when I was sick, you really find out who your friends are. It took me six months to get them all back, but I had over 170 text messages on my phone, and Wendy counted every one of them. You wake up and you don’t know where you are.
That’s what you know who your friends are because there are people I was very close with who didn’t show up to his (Reid’s) funeral and didn’t text me. As simple as that, but there are people I spent a lot of time with and in whom I put a lot of faith, and we are very close. I didn’t hear a word from them, and those are the things that are more painful than anything I’ve ever experienced in wrestling. It’s just a very personal feeling. “You can see more in Wrestling inc.
Bobby Lashley ‘censored’ at WrestleMania 37
WWE and Peacock have censored impromptu interviews with Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, MVP and other stars during the rain delay of WrestleMania 37. Sasha Banks’ story about the WWE “boyfriend” has been leaked.
Gary Cassidy tweeted: “WWE has released #WrestleMania Night 1 on WWE Network to eliminate rain delays.
The beginning now sees Vince McMahon and the roster welcoming fans, Bebe Rexha introduces America The Beautiful, introducing the production, then moving on to Titus O’Neil & Hulk Hogan’s first appearance.
Mandy Rose’s slip has also been removed. Instead, we see a long shot of Ruby Riott in the ring.
I get it, as it makes the show a much fancier watch in hindsight, but it’s a shame some of those promotions were really enjoyable.
Glad I got a screenshot of the ponchos. “
WWE will censor WrestleMania, but Peacock still has an interview Steve Austin conducted with AEW star Chris Jericho.
Jericho said during the interview: “If people have questions, ideas or concerns, they knock on my door. Sometimes I feel like Vince. There is a list of people to talk to me because I have the advice. It tells you not only what you want to hear, but also what you don’t want to hear. So that’s my responsibility. “

Chris Jericho ‘Angers’ fired a WWE star backstage
Current AEW star and former WWE Superstar Chris Jericho is without a doubt one of the most accomplished and popular professional wrestlers to ever set foot inside the squared circle. He has competed in various promotions such as WCW, WWE, ECW, New Japan Pro Wrestling and AEW among others. He was also furious with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 37.
Former WWE Superstar Sin Cara recently spoke with Inside The Ropes lead writer Gary Cassidy about a backstage discussion he had with Cesar, prompting him to talk about altercations he had with the likes of Chris Jericho and Simon Gotch. .
Well yeah, they sent me to anger management classes, that’s true. That’s very true. Yes, they sent me to anger management classes. It’s true. Well, I had to do it because I had a couple of altercations throughout my career at the company.
But, you know, the thing about us is, you know, as fighters, as artists, we can have a disagreement one day and we can get even and then the next day we’ll be fine. No rancor. Nothing. It was just that momentum. And that is.
I had a couple of fights with some of them. But to this day, since Sheamus and I are very good friends, Jericho and I have no problem. Simon Gotch, I wish you the best. We are not friends, but I wish you the best. I don’t wish you anything bad. But it was one of those things that sometimes happens. We are men, we are in a sport where, you know, you want to be number one, you want to be the best. I understand it and I understand it. But that is true. I went into anger management classes. And I don’t have an anger problem, but I guess it was because I went through some of those things and they just wanted, in a sense, to see if I needed help. I suppose. I do not know.

The challenging pre-pandemic road life, not that It is preferred. There are definitely pros and cons. I enjoy showing off in the ring and I really enjoy getting that love and energy from the crowd, looking around and seeing the RVD signs.
That’s a safe stop, and RVD is all about stops. At the same time, there’s no part of me that sits at home and watches wrestling and says, ‘I wish I could be in that ring tonight, getting my head hit and looking at those lights instead of sitting on my couch. and enjoy life. ‘ . ‘ I still [wrestle] And when I do, there’s a reason and it’s worth it It’s about what it’s worth. My values, there is a place for the RVD fight in WWE. Continue with a full-time career or something like that; don’t hold your breath. ” Fighter transcribed RVD and Batista’s comments.
