Ric Flair Talks About His Matches w/ Bret Hart and Ultimate Warrior in the Early 1990's

WWE Hall of Famer "Nature Boy" Ric Flair recently spoke about his matches with Bret "The Hitman" Hart and The Ultimate Warrior during his tenure with WWE in the early 1990's.

Ric Flair on having his worst matches with the Ultimate Warrior: “I’m wrestling the Warrior in Winnipeg [Canada], right? I’m the champion. And the match, Mike, probably, the second worst match I ever had in my life. The first being when I wrestled The Warrior in Phoenix [Arizona] and he dropped me on my head. Okay? So I come back from the ring. I knew the match just was absolutely brutal. And Pat Patterson goes to me, ‘that was the worst f–king match I’ve ever seen in my life’. And I said, ‘you’re telling me, motherf–ker? I was in it!’ It was absolutely terrible. I just couldn’t have a match with him. It was like wrestling Jimmy Valiant. When the music stopped, the match was over.”

Flair on being injured by the Ultimate Warrior days before he dropped the world title to Bret Hart: “Well, going back to what I had said before, I was wresting The Warrior two nights before that and he dropped me on my head in Phoenix. And I got that inner ear problem where I lost balance. And I never was capable of giving Bret nearly the match he deserved that night. I literally lost my balance and I just hobbled through the match. And he actually carried me because every time I went down, my equilibrium was gone and I couldn’t get back up fast enough to feed him. Do you know what I mean because I fell down and it took me awhile to get used to it.”

On why his match with Hart wasn’t as good as it should’ve been: “I did the best I could. It wasn’t nearly the match that it should have been. I wish I could have given him a better match because he won the world title and he deserved to get it, so that’s how it started. And I had that darn inner ear thing and it didn’t go away for six months.” Flair reflected, “I wish I could have given Bret a better match. We certainly had some good ones after I got well and he was champion and I was chasing him. It was fun. It did real well.”
