WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently commented on joining TNA following his retirement from WWE. Flair noted that while he doesn't have anything bad to say about TNA he wished he never signed with them:
"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." [UpRoxx.com].
...but let's face it, we probably wouldn't have got this awesome promo had he not gone to TNA!
